A few months ago a friend of mine mentioned an author that sounded vaguely familiar, but I wasn’t sure. The name was Francis Frangipane. I have read a few of his articles since then and appreciated his depth and his focus on Christ. Then just last week I decided to buy two of his books and the one that I am reading now is called, “Exposing the Accuser of the Brethren.” It is more like a booklet with just four chapters, but it is very powerful and convicting!
I also found a article he wrote on his blog about the same subject and here is how it starts out:
More churches have been destroyed by the accuser of the brethren and its faultfinding than by either immorality or misuse of church funds. So prevalent is this influence in our society that, among many, faultfinding has been elevated to the status of a “ministry”! The Lord has promised, however, that in His house accusing one another will be replaced with prayer, and faultfinding with a love that covers a multitude of sins.
Satan Wants To Stop Your Growth
This chapter is written specifically to expose the activity of the accuser of the brethren among born-again Christians. There are individuals who are trapped in cults where mind-control and deception are involved; we are not dealing with the uniqueness of their problems in this study. Rather, our goal is to see the Living Church delivered from the stronghold of faultfinding, and to have our hearts turned instead to prayer.
In an attempt to hinder, if not altogether halt, the next move of God, Satan has sent forth an army of faultfinding demons against the church. The purpose of this assault is to entice the body of Christ away from the perfections of Jesus and onto the imperfections of one another.
I bought my book on Amazon (I love Amazon!)
