If You Won't Rebuild,
Reconcile and Restore; Then Shut-Up and Sit Down!
By David J. Stewart
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” —John 10:10
All across America, people today have become so destructive; not only to themselves, but to everyone around them. People murder their children. They assassinate each other online, in their neighborhood and at work. It seems that everyone's answer to marriage problems is to quit, divorce and be critical for the rest of one's life. Hatred, bitterness, condemnation... it's everywhere we turn. The Bible says in John 10:10 that the thief (Satan) only comes to steal, kill and destroy! So many people today are exactly like the Devil—slandering, accusing and hating others.
We are living in a nanny-state (you're listening to an MP3 clip of The Alex Jones' Show from 02/24/12) where everyone minds other people's business; thus, ruining marriages, calling CPS on families for kids playing by the street (subjecting that family to the corrupt court system for 5-7 years to come), turning neighbors into police because they own a gun. New Jersey Will Pay You $1,000 to Rat Out Your Neighbor for Having a Gun! Americans have gone insane because of all the indoctrination by the retarded mainstream newsmedia, Hollywood perversion, evil government agendas (like gay marriage) and absurd liberal left-wing politics! The entire nation has flown over the cuckoos nest!
If you won't rebuild, reconcile and restore other people's relationships, then shut up and sit down! My online ministry for the Lord has always been a ministry of reconciliation; to restore, reconcile and rebuild marriages. I may not be an eloquent writer, but people know exactly where I stand and what I'm teaching... DON'T QUIT! STAY MARRIED! HANG IN THERE! WORK IT OUT! HONOR YOUR MARRIAGE VOWS! EXEMPLIFY CHRIST BY BEING LOYAL NO MATTER WHAT!
2nd Thessalonians 3:11-15 says not to keep company with those who are BUSYBODIES (a person who meddles with the affairs of others)! Have no company with marriage wreckers! Have no company with gossipers! Have no company with slanderers! But Verse 15 says not to count (consider) that person as an enemy; but rather, admonish them as a brother.
I hate divorce and so does God (Jeremiah 3:20; Malachi 2:16; Matthew 19:8). Galatians 6:1-2, “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”
Who obeys Galatians 6:1-2 today? The Bible teaches that those believers who are spiritual ought to RESTORE those weaker believers who are struggling. That's what I am doing though my online ministry, continually uploading resources to help OTHERS in the Lord. I love sharing things and helping others. Galatians 6:1-2 is almost unheard of these days! People are quick to condemn others, recommending divorce, divorce, divorce!!! It is of the Devil. Many people are like the serpent in the Garden of Eden, who ruined Eve's life and then vanished. A proper Biblical attitude is to reach out to others who have fallen; not condemn them to the grave as an evil person. That's what our heathen American society does to each other. Kill or be killed... dog eat dog!
If you won't help others, then at least don't hurt others. Shut your gossiping big mouth! Get out of the way and let someone through who wants to help restore, reconcile and rebuild marriages, families, lives and churches. God will judge every deed we do (Colossians 3:25), every word we speak (Matthew 12:36), and every thought that we choose to think (Proverb 24:12; Matthew 5:22,28). Ecclesiastes 12:14, “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
I am not trying to be unkind, but if you aren't going to be a builder of relationships, then at least don't be a destroyer!Ye Must Be Born Again! | You Need HIS Righteousness!
