But everyone’s doing it!” That is the oldest statement of peer pressure. I even felt peer pressure when I was younger, too. I know what you may be thinking. I must have gotten mad when I was not allowed to go to the dinosaur races. I mean, everyone was at the dino-races, except me. (I am that old, according to my son.) I know that things are different now than they were a few years ago, when I was younger. However, one thing has certainly not changed. Satan will still try to use peer pressure to cause the downfall of many Christians today. Adults face peer pressure in the work environment on a daily basis. This is not just a phenomenon for youth. Learn how to deal with it effectively now. You will save yourself some trouble as you grow older.
Ronald Harper was not raised in a Pentecostal home. He did not learn the Apostolic doctrine until the age of eighteen. Some men in the church he attended in Germany taught him a home Bible study. This teaching he received fuels his passion to share the gospel with others. He has helped with jail and nursing home ministries in Louisiana; however, his burden has always been home missions. A portion of the proceeds from all his book sales are given to home missions under the administration of the church he currently attends. Ronald is a member of the United Pentecostal Church of Burlington, North Carolina, and his pastor is Kenny Godair. Ronald likes the study and to write books and poetry. His first book was called The Quest For True Apostolic Doctrine. Ronald and his wife, Cathy, have six children and two grandchildren. They also have two Chihuahuas, Taco and Cocoa.
