3: CUSSING! | Church folks ought to quit... | Yes, someone may upset you or get on your last nerves, but only say what God would say. | Colossians 3:8-But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these.......filthy language.
4: Having sex outside of marriage or having sex and you're not married! | Church folks ought to quit... | Yikes! | 1 Corinthians 6:18a- Flee fornication
5: Calling in "sick" when you are not! Wow | Colossians 3:9a- Do not lie to each other....
6: Getting a $2,000 paycheck and putting in $10 for "tithes"! mmm hmmm | Church folks ought to quit... | Malachi 3:10 - Bring the WHOLE tithe into the storehouse...
7: Using the phrase, "I'm just keeping it REAL" (which is really code for .."I don't care what God's Word says, I just want to do/say what I want")
8: Sexting and/or sending inappropriate pictures just like the world! | Church folks ought to quit... | 1 Thessalonians 5:22 - Abstain from all appearance of evil

13: Luke 9:23 - Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. We have to deny ourselves and DAILY take up our cross(die to ourself). In other words, you can't do or say what you want. You should only do and say what God would have you to. It's not about you anymore once you accept Jesus.
14: when they allow the Holy Spirit to control their lives and realize that God knows best in all these situations. | Church folks CAN QUIT...
15: Dear Lord, I ask that You touch the lives of everyone that reads this book. Convict where conviction is needed. Encourage where they are on the right track. Give strength where strength is needed. Give them a love for You that would cause them to want to live your way in every area of their lives. Help them to bring glory to Your name and not shame. Holy Spirit, TAKE CONTROL of their lives. Let change be immediate, even as soon as they finish reading this book... No more cussing, sleeping around, sexting, doing what they want to do and not caring what Your Word says and whatever else that is not pleasing to You. Father,help them to be an awesome example to many of what their life can be like when they give themselves completely to You. Let not only their lives be changed and blessed, but their family, their co-workers', their classmates' and their friends' lives as well. I ask all this in the name of Jesus! AMEN!
