Well it’s been about 36 hours since I posted my first blog post. It has gotten almost 200 views and I have gotten positive feedback from people all around the world. It seems some people are glad that I am speaking up. Others however, are not. Yesterday I got ex-communicated from my church in a facebook comment if you can believe it! Not even a text message or phone call never mind a face to face dismissal. It is very upsetting, but sometimes the truth will offend but still I will go forward. When you really start stepping out in truth that you know, most often people are not going to like you can expect opposition and persecution.
It’s very hard for people to accept truth when it conflicts with what they believe to be true.
I was told, when I presented this to my church, that they would not listen to me and they stand by this lady 100%. Someone actually said that unless God gives me a dream or a vision I will not listen. I don’t think they even read the whole article if any at all. I am using the written word of God to judge Kat Ker and what the leadership has told me (in that church), is that they don’t go to word of God to find the truth anymore – but instead they look for visions and dreams. They will listen to prophets even if they contradict the word of God.
It really hurts to see that they would rather support someone outside the flock that comes by once in a while – with wild un-biblical claims I might add – rather than someone from within their own flock – raising legitimate concerns with scripture.
I sent this also to Kat Kerr, and instead of explaining or even defending herself she used a very common technique to deflect the allegations. She deflected the whole argument by saying, “it’s ok that I don’t believe her”, “I have to do God’s will” and “I’m not judging you God will do that”. I wish I had saved the message but now I am blocked from her facebook. It appears she is afraid I might get through to some people. If she has nothing to hide why block me? She is on facebook so I encourage everyone who reads this and believes it to be true to re-post post my article and if you’re bold enough – post it on her page.
I have tried to reach Kat prior to this personally she did not listen, I have taken it before the church and now I will request a meeting in person according to (Matthew 18:15-17). I will see what kind of response I will get.
I am going to leave this post with this:
One of the most often quoted scriptures is “Judge not, lest ye be judged” (Matthew 7:1 KJV). Taken out of context, the verse has been used to incorrectly justify never taking a stand on anything that would require a judgment to be made. Rather, the verse is referring to hypocritical, self-righteous, unfair kinds of judgment, especially where the confronter is guilty of the same sin as the one being confronted.
We should stand up for the truth and not let people falsely hide behind this verse and escape accountability.
