One of the biggest obstacles that hinders Christians from rising up, understanding and using their authority that was given to them in the beginning of creation is the extreme sovereignty teaching. It started around 400 AD when Christian leaders began bringing Greek philosophy into western Christianity. In this chapter of The Authority Given to Mankind, we explain what is sovereignty and explain what it means that God is sovereign. I share in-depth with the help of my good friend Pastor Steve C. Shank (Author of Schizophrenic God? Finding Reality in Conflict, Confusion and Contradiction) how these doctrines came about and the damage that was brought in Christianity as a result of this ideology.
This understanding has been eye opening for many believers who struggle with healings and miracles. Most Christians in Western Europe and the USA are unknowingly more influenced by Greek Philosophy than they are by the Bible. In this chapter we expose this through the Word of God and warnings from early Church leaders about this doctrine that was trying to influence Christianity during the start of the early Church.
Do you desire to be used by Jesus in healing and deliverance ministry? If so, this book can be a great tool to get you there. Mark has been teaching this subject for many years, all over the world. The fruit he has seen from this teaching has been amazing. Thousands have been healed and or delivered as leaders have put these principles into practice.
