If you’re offended that people are going to a different church than yours; or think they’re only going because of free food or slick marketing, you need to pray for them. And ask yourself if you’re in competition. It could be those people are after the Holy Spirit.

She answered, “No, I’m not afraid because I’m covered by the blood of Jesus, the Lamb. And no weapon formed against me shall prosper (See Isaiah 54:17).”
The man immediately shriveled up.
