I don't see how one must literally stand upon the pages of the word of God in order to "Stand on the promises." It seems very much to be an affront to the Scriptures; in fact, the notorious Jim Jones is reported to have done this very thing, only his standing on the Book was to show that his interpretation was more important than the Bible itself. We all know how THAT mess wound up.

I agree: while I don't find it "offensive" (Ps. 119:165), I am bothered by the idea of someone placing their feet upon God's perfect words in that manner, especially in shoes (Ex. 3:5).
