Finger of God: a Review of Darren Wilson's Documentary

Dear Pastor Hughes

I would like to ask you a few questions regarding this film [Finger of God]. I read your blog, but I cannot find any new information. The Church I attend is planning to show this film. Would you recommend we do? If not, why?. Any updated information will help me.

Jesus himself gave us the flu shot... Just keep saying that I'll never have the flu. I'll never have the flu." This name-it-and-claim-it garbage doctrine deserves to be ridiculed, and it has been made fun of by  newspapers to talk shows. Comedian Ji…
