How To Recover From Hurts And Pains of The Past

Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: (2 Timothy 4:14 KJV) Here we see Paul extremely hurt by whatever Alexander the coppersmith has done. Judging from Paul’s tone, whatever harm Alexander has done is probably either towards him or towards the church of God.

How To Severe Soul Ties And Be Made Free From Illegal Relationships

Soul ties can be brought about by compromise. One of the purposes of making love with your spouse is to establish bonding at the highest level. However, when this is done with someone you are not married to, a bonding also takes place, but it is an unhealthy bonding because it is spiritually illegal, a direct violation of God’s injunction, a sin unto God, and unto one’s body.
