A principle or body of principles presented for acceptance or belief, as by a religious, political, scientific, or philosophic group; dogma.
I'm in the middle of attending the "11th annual Hispanic Women's Conference" founded by Dr. Margarita Trevino. This will be my last year. See what I didn't know was that Dr. Trevino had left her church "First Baptist in Keller" and started attending a new church called "The Wisdom Center"
Reasons for not returning:
# The conference was a general assembly instead of the usual mini conferences.
# The conference for the most part was in English with translation to Spanish, instead of all Spanish.
# There were a bunch of new speakers instead the the ones of days of old.
# They had an Anglo woman doing most of the leading of worship, trying to sing in spanish but butchering it. Although they had on the program a woman how does praise and worship in both languages. (She only sang a few songs)
# No gifts bags, but a free book from the Pastor
# The whole conference basically talked about whatever the Pastor wrote in his book. When they said turn to Chapter 24, I grabbed my bible, but realized they were talking about his book.
# The doctrine of planting a seed and reaping a harvest. Specifically $35 for a dvd, $20 for an author to sign a book, and $15,000 to help pay for next years conference.
Dr. Trevino used to be a great woman of the faith. (seems like she was just playing the part)
Now she's found the Holy Spirit, planted a $1000 seed that turned into $58000, and now all is well in her world.
Questions and Comments:
1. She had the Holy Spirit, it's not His fault she wasn't joyful, and that she had Him on a shelf.
2. The love of money is the root of all evil.
3. Jesus was not rich, and those God fearing people in the bible who were used there wealth for the Lord and realized it was all his anyway (King David)
4. The amount of money you give does not show how much you love God. Obidience to His Word does.
5. I'm going to start my own conference next year.
