True Ministry
Draws attention to God only

True Ministry draws attention to God, (Acts 3: 1-9).  Produces life, (Kings 17: 8-16/17: 21-23).  Helps facilitate positive change, (John 4: 5-7, 16-18, 28-30, 39) and meets the deepest need in the heart of every human being, Fellowship with God.  (Matthew 27:51, Hebrews 10:19-20)

Entertainment\False Ministry draws attention to oneself, (Matthew 23:5-7, 12).  Can produce death, (Mark 6:21-28).  Has great potential for negative change, (1Samuel 18: 6-9).   Leaves you and others unfulfilled because it caters to the flesh and is based on emotions, (John 4:10, 13-14).
