I can't help but wonder...
Why has no one cared to check up on my grandparents??? Jerry and Sharon Sullivant?
Why is it, because my father is a pastor of a large church he is 'allowed' to yell and scream at HIS own parents just because they refuse to shun their grand-daughter?
1 Tim. 3:1,8
1 - Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren.
8 - But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
2 - Honour they father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
3 - That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
Why is it that my father, my mom, and their eldest son, are 'allowed' to send horrible and disrespectful emails/letters to my grandparents with no regard for their health and well-being?
Why was my grandmother unable to even look at one of her great-grandchildrens' face thru a glass storm door?
All because she and my grandpa still have contact with me?
THIS IS WRONG!!!
I have been compared to the prodigal son more times then I could even count.
Have you ever even read about the prodigal son?
Here's something to look up...
-- The ACTUAL prodigal son, asked for his inheritance from his father, and his father gave it to him.
-- The ACTUAL prodigal son, took that inheritance and wasted it on bad living.
-- The ACTUAL prodigal son, was so poor he had to eat the pigs' food in order to survive.
-- The ACTUAL prodigal son, realized that he had SINNED against his father in asking for his inheritance early and wasting it on crazy living.
-- The ACTUAL prodigal son's father was outside looking out for his son, and while he was still far away his father RAN and hugged him. (He had been waiting for his child to come home)
I have been told, that in order to have 'Family Restoration', I need to repent publicly both in writing and to the church.
How can I repent for telling the TRUTH?!?!?
I confronted my father in front of the deacons and Dr. Ray Dell (former president of the Canadian Baptist Bible College) Our meeting was to ONLY be between the two pastors that accompanied me, myself, and my parents. My father was the one that told the deacons and Dr.Dell to meet with us in his office at the church.
My father is the one that brought our FAMILY issues before the church.
My brothers say that I am full of lies, yet the only person that they will physically TALK to is their dad. They are just believing what one person says is the 'way it is', meanwhile they do not search out the truth.
I'm not expecting there to be a restoration of my family.
I know that sounds harsh, but the trust that I THOUGHT I had in my brothers and my mother has been almost totally destroyed.
They have chosen to be blinded, and I realize that outside of the Holy Spirit doing His work, they will not see the truth nor the error of their ways.
