DEAR CHRISTINE: Church man courting two women
Greetings to you in the name of the Lord. I am still here observing this church man. He is supposed to be a Christian, but it seems he forgets he is.
He and his lady friend are deeply in love with one another. She really loves him, but if he loves her why can’t he forget about the outside woman?
He is still going to her house and leaving all hours of the night. He was baptized last year but he hasn’t stopped what he was doing.
He’s always with his Bible in hand at church. He and his lady friend sit beside each other. He gets on like everything is okay and the two of them can be seen in the presence of their relatives and friends.
So although he is sinning, he is still holding on to his church. At some point God will help him to resist the Devil.
His outside woman, on the other hand, is so ashamed that she can’t come to church because she knows what she is doing.
So all his lady friend has to do is pray and she will see her salvation sooner than she expects because God is on her side, and with God on her side she will conquer all things.
I trust that God will work all things out so that demon will go her way and he and his lady friend will live happily ever after.
I hope she will see this and make up her mind to leave him because he is not leaving his lady friend for her. Everyone loves his lady friend.
– Thank You in Advance
Dear Thank You In Advance,
You obviously wrote this letter to send a message directly to the person you call the outside woman. This column is not intended for such gossip and I will not entertain it. That is why I took out a number of references that could have led to this woman being identified.
I suspect that you are a friend of the individual you call the lady friend and are seeking to promote her interests. If so, fine, but please don’t write us again on this issue.
That said, it saddens me that for the second time this week I have received a letter indicating that someone who professes Christianity is up to no good. Such stories only undermine the integrity of churches nationwide and make people look at self-professed Christians with cynicism.
I would urge all you believers, regardless of your denomination, to recognize the importance of promoting fidelity in your personal relationships and strong family values so that you can be positive examples in your community.
As for this man, and others like him who have been baptized but are still philandering, the Bible clearly states in Matthew 7:21: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
The Lord does not like ugly and those who do wrong, as he is doing, will not prosper.
