Refuse to listen to them, even plugging our ears, putting earphones on
Never answer their calls, texts, letters

If they are your children, your wife, your husband, your parent-consider them
as dead. UNLESS PASTOR TELLS US TO ACKNOWLEGE THEM.

But God says, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour” (Exodus 20:16). “Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it” (Psalms 34:11-14). “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44). “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish” (Proverbs 19:9). “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit” (Proverbs 15:4).
