When I was Hurting, and You Aided me NOT

I lost my home due to separation from my spouse, and you did not react in my defense.

I lost my marriage, my life's partner turned her back on me, and you shunned me as though I was a leper, as if you knew nothing about what had taken place. No one even intervened to stop her from filing for divorce, not even the head shepherd of your flock cared enough to intervene.

I lost my job and you said "that's too bad, sorry to hear that, hope you find something soon". the months went by, I kept applying for work, nothing came of it, and only one of my brothers in Christ blessed me with $100 to help me. I advised your leadership that I was having financial difficulty, and you shuffled me off to a clearing house for an evaluation, instead of obeying the Word of God.

I lost my savings, my checking account became overdrawn more than once, I had a very difficult time because I had no real income coming in to pay my bills. I was stone broke, you did not aid me.

I thought the church was supposed to be a hospital for those who are spiritually wounded, it sees more like a slaughter house for those who don't seem to measure up to your man made standards. You seem to ignore those who need help right in your own congregation, didn't the church is Act's 2 take care of each other?

I thought that the church was suppose to be a lighthouse shining the light of the Gospel, so that lost ships can find there way safely into safe harbor, but your harbor is full of rocks, evil stares, and pointing fingers of condemnation. You bunch of Pharisees!

Jesus said these words "as much as ye have not done it unto the least of these my brethren, you have NOT done it unto me"!!

You come to church dressed in your Sunday best, you look good on the outside, but on the inside you are a filthy mess before God. Your worship is in vain because your hearts and minds are not focused on Christ, whom you came to worship, but upon many other things that preoccupy your thoughts instead.

Your lips mouth words that evade the ears of God Almighty. You say you love God, but your hearts are far away from him. Jesus stated this as fact, yet you think of yourself as a lover of God, but you don't even know the meaning of the word love because you do not love your brother/sister in Christ that is right in front of you.

Jesus made it clear that if a person say's that they love God, and yet they do not love their brother/sister in Christ who is plainly visible unto them, the love of God is not in them. You claim to love God yet you do not love each other the way you ought too.

Jesus also said it is by the love we have for each other that the world will know we belong to him. No wonder so many reject Christianity, it is because God's supposed people do not love God, or each other!!
