I was lied to this morning.
I suppose that might be better than being completely ignored but the lie came from someone I would have never expected.The lie came from an overseer of the church we used to attend (we quit attending as of yesterday for anyone who hasn't already heard). More than that, the liar is trying to make ME the bad guy. He said if I sent the letter I wrote to the leadership it would destroy the church!
Seriously? What church? And how did I get that kind of power without knowing it?
I think I know what's going on here and it's that very thing that has caused me to be saddened to the depths of my soul. Peoples very lives are on the line and they don't even know it.
For the record, I already sent that church-destroying letter to the senior pastor. I'm sure he shared it with the man who doesn't know me but knew I had a 2-page letter. I'm certain it was a threat straight from the pit of hell.
I do not ever want to be so important that I forget where I came from. I do not ever want to be so sure of myself that I'm easy prey for a prideful spirit. Pride goeth before a fall and a haughty spirit before destruction. I've heard this scripture (Proverbs 16:18) in my spirit for days so I knew this meeting would turn out this way.
Sadness. For everyone involved in this mess.
