“The same preacher counseled her through all four divorces”

06 Jan

From a comment at Dalrock’s

She was never a “bad person” although she did have a couple of LTRs that “didn’t work out,” between her marriages. She’s generous and loving, and devoted to her children and her parents. Heck, the same preacher counseled her through all four divorces.

As opposed to kicking her ass out of the congregation and snubbing her in public. What part of “go and sin no more” is it that churchians have trouble understanding?

    WTF?

    Would love to know what denomination that was, or lack thereof, so we can name and shame them. Because, shame on that preacher and his congregation!

    Yes indeed, Matthew! Pathetic. She should have been shamed and held to account, not mollycoddled and fussed over. Sigh.. The world is going to hell in a handbasket alright..

    Well, there’s the ‘go’ part and the ‘sin’ part and the ‘no more’ part – ‘and’ they’re pretty good at.
    Did you have something else in mind?

    Svar: Huh?

    Churches need to shame those that placate divorce, receive spousal maintance, receive child support, or make false claims of abuse. How does the Church know?…. it needs to investigate, since the Bible clearly gives the Church the authority and responsibility. It is that simple.

    The Inquisition cared more about justice than our current government or our current churches!

    It’s a destructive cycle. The Church doesn’t challenge people, so the potentially strongest (and those most in need of a good challenge) believers leave, leaving behind limpwristed authorities like the preacher in question who continue the destruction.

    Churches should not be feelgooderys. The good feelings should arise from the freedom that comes with believing in Christ, not because everyone is patting each other on the back all the time.

    7man: “The Inquisition cared more about justice than our current government or our current churches!”

    You’re playing my song. I recently read some excerpts from a biography of Isabella that depicted Torquemada as a weary old monk of unimpeachable rectitude who was straight-up coerced by the Roman church to assume the burden of steering the Spanish Inquisition. Which was, it seems, almost completely focused on crypto-Jew conversos, not on heretics in the normal sense.

    That Dalrock post itself is quite good.

    “I’m not a slut!” is the first thing a girl who, in previous times, would have been considered a slut, wants to tell herself and others…
