Pamela Rose Williams May 24, at 1: I agree with this but in some cases a man is the counselor, such as in the case of our Biblical Counseling ministry at Selah Mountain Ministries. My husband is the counselor and I run the office. We have a camera that I monitor outside of his office. The camera shows what is going on inside of the office and I can see but do not hear the conversation.
We have had absolutely not objections to this practice. Thanks for sharing here. Clyde July 11, at 4: A Shepherd with a trained sheep dog can spot , smell and defeat a wolf. Sheep dogs are raised as puppies with sheep , trained by the Shepherd with voice and hand signals. Sheep dogs keep order for the flock. Wolves and dogs same family. My Senior Pastor always said she can hear God speaks to her and she was also a prophet.
I need to know whether am I dealing with a wolf in sheep skin. Jack Wellman July 12, at 8: Coleen February 18, at Our pastor always told me, that i must plant for the church he always told me that every time we meet is that right?? Jack Wellman February 18, at That is a bit strange to have your pastor as you or anyone person in your church to plant a church.
I have not heard that. I would ask him why church leadership is not there to help you do this? Have they trained you or given you help to do that? If not, that is a new one to me and not normal. Hilda Williams July 12, at 5: We must be wise in who we choose as president and my gut and soul just tells me this verse says it all for me. I appreciate your post and enjoy reading them and reminding us what the Bible tells us about so many things that certainly applies so much about what is going on today.
Well I really enjoyed the article, but some of the comments, not so much. You could never vote for Trump? Do you prefer Clinton? She believes in the murder of unborn babies, the Word of God describes that as an abomination, the worst kind of sin.
She is also a compulsive and habitual liar. Verse 13 tells the duration of these gifts, if one of them has expired then they have ALL expired. When you, as a Pastor post such things and then use Jude v. Janelle Frances August 27, at 1: Several others are aware of his behavior. My husband and I have agreed to stay arm in arm and together at church. Jack Wellman August 27, at 1: This man is a wolf. I would speak with the pastor about this man.
I would go to the pastor with your husband present or at least call him. Perhaps the pastor has heard complaints about this man before and what he is doing is totally inappropriate.
You and your husband may be the first to expose this man and have him dealt with. God may be using you to help keep His church without spot or blemish, as the church is called to be holy as God is holy.
Nina August 31, at 4: I got a little too close in sharing spiritual thoughts with a man at my church. He is warm, kind and gentle. Now I realize he has been grooming me all along for a physical affair. He said everything a woman likes to hear, including warm hugs witnessed by my husband. My husband said he could see it coming. He never said anything because of his own pride but now he wishes he would have.
I am embarrassed and have asked God for forgiveness. My husband forgave me for getting too emotionally connected with another man and told me I need to set better boundaries with men.
He said a physical affair would have been much harder for him to get over. I purchased a bible study on boundaries.
Jack Wellman August 31, at 4: Pamela Rose Williams September 1, at I am so happy that you were able to have the strength to avoid the physical affair. Great practice not to hug men other than your husband. I practice that one myself! Bill Coy October 3, at 7: Since Hillary Clinton dedicated her thesis to Saul Alinsky, and has followed his edicts her entire adult life, and in her political goals, it is illogical for anybody believing in God to vote for a disciple of Saul, who worshiped Satan.
Pam October 4, at 3: I met this man online, on a Christian dating site. I will not compromise and date men who do not love god. Well, this man and I would pray together, talk about the word all the time. I mean everything was about God. I desire a man to pray with and for me, just us walking in the things of god and doing gods will is my desire with a husband.
This man started telling me how his father left him an inheritance and he had to go to another country to get it. He sent me a copy if the check that was his inheritance and he would pay me back when he got to my state. Well, to make the story short. I gave him money to get back to the states. I prayed with him and for him, he made up lies saying other people had sent him money to help him come back to the states.
Family he made up an elaborate story but they were all lies. All the while I was attempting to send the money it would not send on 3 different ocassions, so many things kept hindering g the transaction but because I, in my mind thought god was saying he is the ONE! I arrived even harder to assist my to be husband.
The man that I was speaking with was not acting alone, I was corresponding with his friend while he was supposedly being locked up because he was found with more than 10, They were in kahoots together. I later sent this check to the bank it was drawn on and they confirmed it was a scam. I had give him my money by that time. God kept attempting to block the things that I was doing but I thought this was it for me. I invest in my relationship with God.
Please believe I have never did anything g like this before and that hurt as well not only was I scammed and deceived but I acted out of character. That was not me. His words were smooth. I now realized that he listened to how I expressed my love for God and used it against. How do I recover. I know God loves and forgives me but I was not supposed to be overtaken by this wolf.
I am so sorry for all of this terrible heartache. How do you recover from this? God will often use our pain to minister to others who have been in similar situations. Have you talked with your pastor about this?
Do you have a church that members can pray for your broken heart? God forgives and helps us to move on. We need others and that includes the Body of Christ, the church. Dana October 28, at I say wolf, rather than wolves, because every one of these cases mirror the exact experiences of my ex-husband and me, my ex and his second wife, and my ex with many women in our church.
I started getting the heebie-jeebies reading these accounts because I thought for sure they were all talking about the same man, my ex. This wolf, my ex, has been diagnosed as a pathological sexual predator by a licensed clinical marriage counselor. It all started with an addiction to pornography.
