Hello,will answer one only, experience
I am able.In the church we have "the wheat & the tares" TEAR up the church their mindless lies,gossip, distracts a new believer Faith or his/her new testimony or chops away,, tearing up & adding insult to injury,weakens many who MAY not yet, rooted,grounded, grafted in the word.
We need to pray daily, much as possible for one another(s) may the Lord bless let us be aware of his purposes,pray for strength, leave the people who are there to breakdown our communication with God up to Him.Nothing is hid from God.
Love of Jesus!

The religious spirit is a demonic spirit that only wants you to follow man-made laws, not God-made laws. It is a spirit that will put limits on you to where you are not allowed to fulfill your God-given destiny. It does this by condimnation, which is of the devil. Division and curses are also of the devil. To get rid of these things, first plead the blood of Christ on you and your finances. Then, take the Sword of the Spirit (Word of God) and cut, sever, and destroy Satan's plans and assignments against you and your finances.

When there is division you pray and ask the Lord to deal with whomever is causing this division. God answers prayers.Even if someone prays that you return to a Catholic church, does not have to effect you. Only you know when the Holy Spirit is leading you to another church. A religious spirit is when someone is into rules and regulations and traditions. They try to control you with these spirits and make you feel guilty if you don't do what they are saying. No one can pray in any way to hurt your finances.
You need spiritual knowledge and understanding. Study the Word more and ask the Lord to give you what you lack. You seem so vulnerable and easily led in the wrong direction.

Just make sure it's not you grieving the Holy Spirit. What others do is their business. A religious spirit is when people are controlled by the letter of the law with rules and regulations instead of by the Spirit of God. This leaves no room for movement. I would rebuke the kind of prayer that hurts people. Hang in there, this usually runs it's course. If you move you can't be any help.

The bloggers have given you statements to justify my saying RUN FROM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. This type of control through negative prayer (which God will not even hear) is evil as is the RCC. RUN. Try to make peace with your relatives outside of the church but not inside of it. Do not worry about your finances. God does not answer those prayers.

(1) There some types of division in all churches. (2) If you let people lead you you need to repent and turn to Holy Spirit. (3) Religious spirits will send people to hell. Just like religion will. (4) Nobody can pray a prayer to hurt your finances.

Whoa Nelly. Your family wants you back in the RCC and they're praying for your return? Are they praying your finances will be drained until you return? If so, that is a spirit of witchcraft. Division in your church of choice, or the church as a whole?

No one can pray in a way that hurts your finances. But prayer is important. You should be praying to God for an answer. And yes people can pray for your return for any reason. If they feel that you can heal a rift, then maybe you should listen to them. But God will only answer prayers in a way that benefits all involved, not in a way that would harm you.

1st question. Take no part in the cause of the division. 2nd Q. All things are possible to those who believe. Yield to the Fathers Spirit within you. 3rd Q. An attitude that advocates a legalistic or moralistic conformity to abstract rules of conduct applied to any given method of worship. 4th Q. Think no evil & know this: "No weapon formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that rises against you in judgement thou shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord."

A religious spirit is saying you are a Christian but not living and doing the Word of God. If people pray against you or in a negative way this is manipulation which is witchcraft according to the Bible. Do not have anything to do with these types of people. They only want to control you which is witchcraft.

You get on your knees and cry out to Father God and ask Him what to do. What kind of division are you speaking about? Is it being caused by the Pastor or someone in the congregation? I'm asking because I went through 2 churches where division was so bad, Father God closed both churches down, 2 years apart from one another. PRAY HARD and EVERY DAY ask Father God what to do.

What is the division? Is it a Catholic church that is divided? I think the Holy Spirit would grieve a division. As for praying for your return to the Catholic Church - God will guide you where you should go. If you think he's guiding you back to the RCC check it out.
I'm told God won't grant prayers that will hurt you.

John ::The Holy spirit IS the letter of the law;Jesus said so I shall send the Paraclete to strenghten & guide you .If this supposedly spirit is not in conformity with Jesus teachings Get Rid of It.It is false underhand misleading & leading U & many like you up the garden path to destruction.
