How to 'properly' handle issues in the church
How do we 'remedy' divisiveness in the church
Justin Peters: The Hurt of Healing
Watch video on youtube beginning at 13:10.
This entire situation has hurt me and my mother deeply to the point of making us physically sick. I do not believe that the pain will ever go away or be forgotten. I am one of the most trustworthy people on the face of the earth. However, I am incapable of ever trusting people again who devise schemes behind my back to bring harm to me
(Psalm 35:4Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.Psalm 35 verse 4,
Psalm 41:7All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.Psalm 41 verse 7,
Jeremiah 11:19But I [was] like a lamb [or] an ox [that] is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, [saying], Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered.Jeremiah 11 verse 19,
Jeremiah 18:18Then said they, Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.Jeremiah 18 verse 18,
Ezekiel 11:2Then said he unto me, Son of man, these [are] the men that devise mischief, and give wicked counsel in this city.Ezekiel 11 verse 2).
It is a sad day when wickedness is glorified in the church. So when these fellows started slanderous rumors about me and made a public display of me involving the law then they crossed the line of privacy. They then left me no other choice but to take the legal advise given to me and expose what they did along with private conversations and emails. Read Matthew 18:15-17(verse 15) Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
(verse 16) But if he will not hear [thee, then] take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
(verse 17) And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell [it] unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.Matthew 18 verses 15-17. NO ONE in this religious cult ever confronted me with anything. They just decided to boot me and keep the wicked, sinning people. Listen to what Justin Peters says about how to handle church discipline.
In this town I have not met any preacher who had the maturity, spiritual understanding, or wisdom to know how to properly deal with issues in the church. This is a tragedy! When disagreements and issues arise in the American church people and PREACHERS go around bad mouthing, gossiping, and ganging up on individuals to isolate them. Jewish tradition calls for a Beith Din or ביתדין where a private court is held amongst the Jews only and the Rabbi is the Judge. The Gentiles need to learn this wisdom from the Jews!
God desires that Christians resolve issues amongst themselves but it's not possible to resolve issues with self-seeking counterfeits who are out to kill anyone who gets in the way of their dreams, or who prefer division rather than reconciliation.
The appropriate action for a pastor to take when there is an issue with a church member would be for the pastor along with a church elder to meet privately with the church member to discuss the issue. Depending on the circumstance all parties involved should be present. Male pastors should never at any time be left alone with female church members and vice versa.
There was never any discussion with me. Matt's desire for me to 'disappear' was not at all Christ-like. That was NOT the proper way to resolve issues. Anyone with an attitude like that needs to get saved. There was never any confrontation whatsoever from Marty Layton. Instead, Marty avoided me for weeks prior to the arrest. There was no confrontation because there was NO PROBLEM. Marty wanted me out of his services and away from TBN in order to keep from being exposed as a sham. Please read Jezebel and Ahab Operating in the Church and Christian Families.
To Litigate or Not Litigate
I have spoken with many lawyers. I could have sued TBN and these fake preachers for the way I was treated, the public humiliation and the financial donations I gave but I left them all in the hands of God to deal with since the Bible does state not to take our Christian brothers or sisters to court. This again means a call for a Beith Din or ביתדין.
Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? 1 Corinthians 6:1
If any of you has a dispute with another, do you dare to take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the Lord's people? 1 Corinthians 6:1 (NIV)
However these preachers were not Christian and they forced me into court. False prophet, Marty Layton, and Matt Dentino fled to the next town and both were TOO COWARD to show up in court to face me and give a public statement in front of me, the judge and everyone about what they did. Neither one ever had a legal reason for what they did. I was NOT given a fair court hearing because the law was bought off behind my back to do me in. I was never given an opportunity to speak in court at all. Then these preachers slandered me with lies around town. The slander against me began way before the day of the arrest. These men are wolves in sheep's clothing. They are very evil and dangerous. They are operating under demonic spirits charming and deceiving people with a false gospel and false prophecies.
Matt and Marty had their plot against me all wrapped up with the law. Preachers and celebrities in this town seem to have special privileges with the law. The police in this town already have a poor reputation about being uneducated, using drugs, involved in sexual scandals, taking bribes, targeting and harassing people and on it goes.
True and Genuine Forgiveness
True forgiveness means that the one who has caused the harm needs to initiate amends with the one they harmed, and the one who was harmed needs to forgive (Colossians 3:12-13(verse 12) Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
(verse 13) Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also [do] ye.Colossians 3 verses 12-13). NO WHERE in the Bible does it say to "obliterate" whoever gets on your nerves or in your way and therefore it is justified. That is what Satan does. If you cannot live in harmony then there was never any true forgiveness.
When we think now of saying something out of the flesh to one of our brothers or sisters, it's not just going to the prayer room and say "Well, Lord forgive me" and thinking it is just between two people.
When we give someone a cold shoulder and when we just back away from somebody and we isolate them and then we think that is just between individuals. Well, that's just between me and her. It's between me and him. No, no, no. Lord show us. It's not between individuals and we can't just go to a prayer room and say 'forgive me, Jesus' without realizing that we've got to go back to the body, to that person, that one we wounded. We wounded Jesus. -David Wilkerson, The High Cost of Mercy-
I am all for and always have been for making amends, but in this situation I have been unsuccessful at doing that. One cannot make friends with Jezebel. Jezebels never admit wrong doing and they are never 'genuinely' sorry1. Refuses to admit guilt or wrong
A Jezebel spirit is never wrong, unless it is a temporary admittance of guilt to gain "favor" with someone. To accept responsibility would violate the core of insecurity and pride from which it operates. When a Jezebel apologizes it is never in true repentance or acknowledgment of wrongdoing but rather "I’m sorry your feelings were hurt."
-Steve Sampson, Confronting Jezebel-. They initiate trouble and seek to destroy as they are servants of Satan. If people cannot continue to love each other and fellowship together then there is no real forgiveness going on.
At this point being years down the road since the arrest these men and TBN would have to make a PUBLIC APOLOGY to me, AND Matt and Marty would have to contact local law enforcement admitting to them that they lied about me. NO ONE has ever made an effort to reverse the damages done to me or make any amends with me at all. The mean spirited, critical ones are the ones who reject the truth and refuse to make amends with those they have hurt.
