About Hermana Linda
Hermana means sister in Spanish and Linda is my name. I was born in late 1960 to a mother who had traveled around the world and had been impressed at the baby wearing she saw in Africa and Japan. While in Japan she purchased the baby carrier in which she is wearing me in my avatar. By the grace of God, I trusted Jesus as my personal savior in 1983. He gave me a husband in 1987 and 2 sons in the early 1990's. All glory to God.

    Michael Pearl has answered his critics… again. Now he’s taking aim at those who declare him a heretic. Someone on my Facebook wall has reprinted his article in its entirety. Is there anyway it can be reprinted here also for those who would like to read it?

    • I can link to it. I don’t post anyone’s words without their permission.

      • Linda B says:

        That’s cool with me. I wanted to see if someone could make the text available to those who didn’t want to visit the NGJ site and give them more traffic.

        • I found it. It’s an old article from Oct of 2007. Yeah, he does claim to not teach Sinless Perfection. Yet, many people who say that they have heard the sermon still claim that he does. It’s confusing. But either way, he certainly teaches abuse. No doubt about that. You can find the article at his site.

          • OK, reading that again, I can see his double talk. He says that he does not believe in “sinless perfection” meaning that the Christian cannot sin, but he does teach that the Christian can and should sin no more. He has the quote on his blog as well.
