I Cry Loud for the Church – Part 1
Why do we preach on everything but the sins our family members are committing in the church? We put everybody in hell, remove them from positions, but let our family members remain in their sin, holding their positions, then hold them up in their wrong doing, but will put anybody out the church if they say anything about the wrong doings.
We have to many Eli run ministries operating in the Body of Christ. I don’t sugarcoat for anybody and am not letting down for anybody. From my house, to the church house, to the streets, to the world, I’m crying, loud sparing none.
If you are practicing sin, you will be judged like any other sinner in God’s sight. You don’t get a “free pass,” because you are a relative of the leader! You not going into eternal life off a buddy-pass or a two-for-one special.
Leaders, you had better stop allowing your sinful spouses, children or relatives, to rule over God’s inheritance.
How are you going to make your spouse, (who is on drugs alcohol and a lustful pervert) the Bishop, the Assistant Pastor, the Apostle, over the ministry, or the Prophet of the house”
How are you going to let your son and daughter (who keep going in and out of jail) handle the church finances?
And how are you going let you relatives come preach, when you know they have sexual identity issues (that covers ‘everything’) or they have uncontrollable sexual desires? Then you want to almost fight when someone accused them of improper advances toward them, or want to sweep under the rug the fact your son has been molesting the young boys and girls?
I counsel countless of individuals who have been attacked, molested, swindled, hurt, and abused by their leaders, relatives, and then made to feel like they the criminal, because they told what happen.
What is this thing preachers are telling victims of these hideous acts, that if they tell, they will mess up their ministry?
Excuse me preachers, what about that soul that now has to deal with the aftermath of what happen to them, the mental emotional and physical abuse that has now destroyed their soul and spirit, and has driven them to thoughts of suicide, murder, hatred for Church, because you want them to keep quiet and let a criminal continue to damage others, because they are your relatives and you don’t want your name tarnish?
I’m sorry, but criminal acts deserve criminal justice. You want people to allow them to go free because they in your family!
The magnitude of this kind of behavior that goes on in the house of God would blow your minds. For too long, victims have been made to suffer in silence in the Church and made to continue to have to look at the one who damaged them, in silent rage.
There has been so much spiritual and emotional damage done, and the Church has set back with it’s hands folded and legs cross and swept it under the rug. And the thing is, when you confront the preachers, they want to retaliate against you and bring revenge by trying to discredit those leaders who won’t allow these issues to go un-addressed. They will threaten your life, the lives of your family, they will threaten to destroy your ministry and name, but guess what? Some are not afraid of the devil and will stand for righteousness and holiness and will NOT back down.
Too many are hurting in the Body of Christ from unresolved issues, because of something that was done to them by someone in the Church. It’s time for the Church to deal with those individuals that have cause others to bleed!
