Hypocrisy: the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense.
So obviously many of you read my post about going through “The Big D” a couple weeks ago. Today I wake up and am getting ready to head to the gym. I get a notice on my phone that someone has replied to this particular post. Here is the reply in all its glory: (The email address that was left with this reply was firstname.lastname@example.org. I did an email look-up and there is no domain name registered with the heavensdoors.com name (clue #1) so I then emailed it and got a mailer-daemon response ..clue # 2)
You say you’re not hurt and yet you talk with such disregard about your wife (and yes she is still your wife until the courts say otherwise). I am not saying what she did was right, but you mind friend, are just as guilty. A sin is a sin no matter what the sin is; they are are the same in the eyes of our Lord. You say you are loyal and yet you left your wife when things got too hot in the kitchen, instead of staying and trying to put out the fire. You abandoned her and left her wondering for months. It didn’t matter she was unfaithful, you never planned on TRYING to make it work. Now a days, most people take the easy way out. And that is exactly what you did. If you had truly loved her, you would have come home to work things out. A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart. ~Proverbs 21:2 It is clear you are not the marrying type because you choose selfishness over oneness (2 people joining together to become 1). Haven’t you read in your Bible that the Creator originally made man and woman for each other, male and female? And because of this, a man leaves his father and mother and is FIRMLY BONDED to his wife, becoming one flesh- no longer two bodies but ONE. ~Mathew 19:4-5 However, let each MAN of you, without exception, love his wife as his very own self ~Ephesians 5:33
What makes you think life (relationships) should be perfect? There are no perfect people in this world. And the 1 and only perfect One suffered just as we suffer. (We don’t have a priest [JESUS] who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all-all but sin. ~Hebrews 4:15) I leave you this… and pray that if you ever do decided to commit again that you will truly commit.
Marriage Prayer – Teach Us to Love Those Who Hurt Us
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please teach us to love those who hurt us. It’s easy to love the ones who are kind and the ones who are gentle, but the challenge comes when we’re called to love in difficult times.
Some days it feels as though we don’t have the strength to love in a way that is pleasing to You, but You have taught us differently. You loved us before we loved You.
Guide our steps. Give us the strength to love as You do–with kindness, forgiveness, compassion, and grace.
Teach us to pray for them, Lord. Remind us to get down on our knees, leave our pain at the foot of Your throne, and rest in the knowledge that You’re working on our behalf.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
So normally I would just let this pass, but the content of the reply was too much for me to pass up. I have an idea of who it may be, but not 100% sure. So with that I give you my two replies to this “email@example.com”:
