An Open Letter to Elders & Preachers
"In another congregation, the elders referred to one of their
deacons as “a junkyard dog.” Yet they allowed him to continue doing the work of a deacon. Many years later, his
wife presented the elders with a shoebox full of her hair that he had snatched from her head."
"Several, including the preacher, appealed to I Tim. 3:4-5 as
authority to spank their wives. They cited the verses by leaving out "know how." One man boasted, "I can knock my wife out
for the Lord, if it will save her soul."
"My first involvement with abuse concerned a woman who verbally
and physically abused her husband and children. Her husband stood taller and weighed more than she, but she yelled at him
in stores, threw glasses at him, and chased him down the stairs with a skillet of hot gravy. The husband asked for help when
she started harassing him at work."
"A young girl who heard about this meeting said, "If this is the
way Christian men treat their wives, I will never marry a Christian."
"One woman asked the congregation for help with her verbally and
physically abusive husband who was also the preacher. They told her they were too busy winning lost souls to take the time
to learn how to help her and their minister."
"These men could not teach the love of God because they didn't
practice it at home. A generation later, nearly every young person in their classes fell away from the Lord."
OUR FAMILIES ARE IN VERY SERIOUS TROUBLE!
WILL THE REAL CHURCH OF GOD PLEASE STAND UP!
