Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. 39 But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” The ultimate decision – Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well
