"This life therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed." --Martin Luther

water divining 2

We learned that one local way to find water is with a coke bottle. Apparently you walk around and when the bottle shakes there is water.
Now I haven’t heard from anyone else on this issue yet, but I do know there ain’t nothing in a coke bottle that is attracted to underground water! So that means it is only one thing-a channeling of a spirit of divination.
What happens if you don’t believe me? Does that matter? Because I tell you hundreds and thousands of people do. And because they believe it, it gives that spirit power and a “right” to what it is doing and be where it is. We as Christians are not immune to the spiritual world around us either!
I realize that even most wells in the US may have been found with some sort of divination. So what now? Is it “Oh well, as long as I have water”? Should we at all be concerned for the spiritual activity that led to the water being found? Is it somehow better that this “diviner” from the well company came out as opposed to the witchdoctor down the road?
Once a well is found with divination, what if any, power does the spirit still have over that well or area? What should be done? Should forgiveness be sought and the well prayed over to break the power of the spirit? I suppose if that is all you have to do, some will say, just use the diviner and then pray…
I know, I may be going off on this a bit, especially from the perspective of those in the West as we just haven’t had the experience with the spiritual world as it is over here. I guess it really bothers me to know that this is something that seems to be accepted as no big deal. If you let the thief get a finger in, how long until the hand, then the arm…

I watched a guy in Serenje do it with a coke bottle. the bottle is filled with water and then tips over when they get to the place. seemed to have worked.
