I have seen a whole city of proud, abusive pastors, who felt that they could not be touched, till I had arrived at God’s request..
Once publically exposed next even the government acted quickly to pull their tax free status, stopped their right to issue donations reciepts and the door of the worst church now was closed forever.. all of the pastors were laid off too..
Public exposure and examplary prosecution of the unrepentant guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest..
“Those whom I love I chasten and rebuke as well”
God does not want you to remain in an abusive marriage… and God will make the door at the right time for you to leave it as well.. trust Him.
ONE OF THE MOST COMMON, POPULAR TOPICS, SEARCHES ON THE INTERNET is can a Christian next get divorced and remarried, and the simple answer is no! but wait do not stop reading yet.. if you are married, living to a demon, a control freak, a liar, a lazy good for nothing abusive person then please now do immediately get out of the marriage, do get an immediate separation.. and this not the kind of advice you would expect from a preacher of peace and love, but I am telling you all this for our own good, and you can thank me later.. and maybe next the still good for nothing bum, lousy spouse, he or she will wake up as to what she is really like and they may try to get help to change herself, himself.. but meanwhile don’t feel guilty about the peace you now have in your life.. By the way make sure first you are not the creepy, a good for nothing spouse yourself otherwise by your actions you will be doing your own spouse a great, great service.
One of the thing that bothers me about allowing someone to walk over me, to verbally abuse me, is where do I draw the line next, put a stop to it.. so I tend to stop it as soon as I see it instead…not a door mat to walk over.. one of the best ways is to have nothing to do with the abuser anymore..
God does not want you to remain in an abusive marriage… nor in an abusive church, or with an abusive pastor as well..
In the first week I was in a new church I immediately saw that the pastor himself was an abusive, control freak pastor and I did not remain there too long..
>>The church is .. evicting … members who don’t “walk the line.”
The 3 major most common reasons, but not valid often it seems, for Church eviction in Canada that I have noted are
-refusal to submit to the pastor’s demands
– if you have suddenly became poor, are out of work, or refuse to support the tithe.
– if you ask someone to repent of their sins
Jer. 23:14 ..as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
Cities that were literally destroyed next..
I must add that when the unrepentant church leaders, church members resort to physical assaults, put their hands on the abused persons that next death often shortly follows upon these still even unrepentant persons… for God himself does not accept physical, verbal, human rights abuses lightly
I have seen it often, unexpected, sudden death of these guilty persons in the church
Many people here relatedly forget the terrible price that even Apostle Paul still paid after he was saved for his previous physical abuse of Christians.. he was buffeted..suffered..
Well the proper Biblical step is first for the Christian person to ask the offender to repent..
The second proper step if they do not repent is to have 2 witness that you have asked them to repent again.. but you do not need any witness to support your allegations..
The third proper step is to inform the rest of body of Christ their unrepentant sin
Now God is free to act and may ask that you bring it to the proper authorities
I have noted to someone recently that the New testament and Old Testament do not allow a wife to divorce her husband, only the male can divorce, but she can separate.
and i had also noted that the new testament specifically indicates that a wife can influence her husband by her good behavior.. the same is not said about the husband..
Now the guilt of being married again after a divorce, is normal for God still does hate divorce… 90 percent of persons who remarry after a divorce are likley to divorce again too.. likley they were also a part of the problem of course. And just cause some people stay married does not mean they were, are more spiritual now too..
In generally in the more liberal society of Canada both the wife and the children tend to have much more freedom, rights, make their own decisions, over many other countries and as a result the culture shock is a very real problem for some new immigrant spouses where the husband was used to being obeyed, and being the sole head of the home thus it’s not altogether uncommon for some of the new immigrant home situations to become unacceptably violent.
