Boy, oh, boy! I don’t usually do two posts in one day, but it has been quite a day! Today is Saturday and I have been dealing with hatred and slander all day. Not only that, the hate and slander has been coming from someone who claimed to be my sister in Christ who I have known here on WordPress for over a year. She did not like my post, “Strong Disagreements & Parting Ways” and let me know by slandering me. It was actually pretty crazy and shocking, especially since we shared fellowship for a long time. You never know who someone really is and what kind of hatred they may harbor against you. Also, just because someone claims to know Jesus doesn’t always mean they really know Him.
The hate and slander I received today was actually the worst I have ever encountered on WordPress. Pretty crazy that it came from someone claiming to know Jesus. Still shaking my head on that one. We have to be careful with who we share fellowship with. Not everyone that claims to be your friend is actually your friend. Sometimes a person that even claims to be a brother or sister in Christ is actually false and will eventually try to tear you down. That is what happened to me today. Not a real fun way to spend a Saturday.
If you would like to see the conversation, please click the post below and scroll through the comments (the link will open in a separate window for your convenience). I have blacklisted her from my blog because of her hateful slander. She is actually the 4th person I have blocked from my blog since writing that post. I appreciate God weeding out false people who surrounded me. It’s good to know a person’s true heart and God will always protect me.
Be careful who you trust out here in the blogging world. Like I tell my kids, salvation is a free gift from God through faith in Jesus Christ, but you have to earn trust and respect. The second you lie about me and slander me, I lose all respect and trust for you. I forgive her, but somebody with that much hate in her heart cannot be trusted, so I am parting ways. Don’t let anybody ever harass you here on WordPress and don’t ever be afraid to speak the truth!
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Grace and peace to you all!
