Isolate Us. How? Consume our Time. Monopolize our Affections. Surreptitiously severing our Bonds of Fidelity to grandparents/Uncles/sibling/friend. Discredit others. Scriptural severance package. With/without our Permission/Compliance. Nosey nincompoop (SStS) has Ways & Means to divide Us from the World/you. End Result? Pretty upSet people walk Away. Others desert/Abandon LOs. Leaving us alone with a Monster/Mighty man of Manipulations. And Pastor somberly declares we are Forsaken by Men who love themselves more than God. Isolation Accomplished. 9 Woes. Sigh.
Wait. Some Few have Not Forgotten Us. Refuse to Leave Minions in Isolation. Is it because they Love? Love Minions? We are Not Forsaken. After all.
But God says, “(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Ephesians 5:9-11).
