I won’t go into all the details, but suffice it to say they didn’t like my message because:
- I talk about the goodness of God;
- I believe and write about the entire Bible, including how we must submit completely to God AND that He will bless us as we obey;
- I talk about my personal testimony; and
- I talk about how you can have the same personal testimony (in all the good ways, that is).
And these people didn’t like that. So they did their thing and what happened happened.
The whole circumstance makes me sad.
But I’ve been seeking the Lord about this situation. Of course I had the initial, gut-level reaction of “
Smite ‘em Bless ‘em, Jesus” and all of that. The shock, the disbelief, the shaking my head, etc. I know you all have been there with different situations, so nobody’s judging. (Right?) And, I will have to say, I was in a fairly good humor throughout the day. Speechless, but good-humored about it.
