Step #9 Make Exiting the church difficult.
So to clarify, pastor likes to tell us we are free to leave Calvarytempleland. We are. But without our sundry family relationships intact. He has a Personal Rule, always Keep part of any family who enters his church. Sooooo if the LightBulb comes on/you Know the church is really Evil. In order to Exit you must Forfiet. Family baby. It’s all about Family. Yours. You May leave/they Will stay. Thus saith the lord (pastor). “Your husband will take you to Hell if you follow him out of here” (whispered wisdom from Saintly Scott). Sending chills down the spine of sweet mama. Sowing discord/division between man and woman.
“Please daddy/mommy. Please listen to me, I do love Jesus, but I Do not think Pastor Scott is a good man. He is bad. Please believe me (tears).” So we take Rebellious Daughter to the gate/Throw her onto the streets. She will pay the price. Until heartbreak/shunning drive her to her knees. She crawls home to kiss Saintly Scott’s ring/or feet (whatever). Because the Cost of Exiting Calvarytempleland. Let’s just say the cost is Priceless. Our families. Priceless.
But God sees. He will judge those who break up marriages/families. He is angry. And He is coming soon.
But God Says, “Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter” (James 3:9-11). “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20). “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s” (Exodus 20:17).
