Series: Toxic Emotions
We are starting a new series entitled Toxic Emotions. We must understand that emotions are not the problem but Toxic Emotions are the problem In fact God created us with the ability to experience all types of emotions. We are a triune being: Body, Soul and Spirit.
We have a physical body and a soul: mind, will and emotions and our Spirit man.
