I experienced and witnessed the mindset that is destructive to itself and others. That will close a church to its own hurt or to hurt another. Restaurant, hospital, community, etc. the swallow up alive mindset is real. Winning at all cost even when no one is competing.
We are thankful to God because we did not know how twisted adults are and how deep and sinister individuals and groups can be. We are still here because the Lord has been at or on my side.
Psalms 124:1 A Song of degrees of David. If [it had not been] the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say; 124:2 If [it had not been] the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us: 124:3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us: 124:4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: 124:5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
