All Kinds, Finale...

Were you shocked when you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry?

Can you even imagine how shocked I was when this happened to me?  Ooooooeeeeee!

I asked why he was looking to marry someone, anyone, from anywhere, while he already had a wife.  And, I asked how he could possibly even think of such a thing, being Christian!

He explained to me that his wife didn't like to have sex with him as often as he would like.  Hence, his need to find a second (2nd) wife.  He told me that since divorce was out of the question, he wouldn't divorce her; but, an additional marriage was okay. 

Hopefully, you didn't pass out, reading this!  lol lol lol  :-))  If I don't laugh, I'll cry. 

Before I ended our chat conversation, I told him I would pray for him and suggested he try loving his wife. 

After all, if a woman doesn't feel loved, she won't respond well to her husband.  Not just sexually, but in any way.  And, I must add, from what he was saying, it didn't sound as if he showed her much love.

How awful it is to realize that even self-proclaimed Christians can distort God's Word, to make it sound like it is okay to sin. 

When I told him this, he became angry, informing me that I was being legalistic and unChristianlike, by telling him that marriage was between one (1) man and one (1) woman... only.  Nothing more; nothing less. 

He let me know that he didn't agree with me; that he believed that he could have more than one (1) wife.  After getting even more angry with me, he cancelled friendship.

All I can say is... Praise God!  Thank You, Jesus!  I know it takes all kinds to make a world, but truly, I do not need friends such as these in my life!

I am grateful that I am truly a child of God.

Not only am I thankful that God has given me good intuition and knowledge of what He wants for His children, through His Word (the Bible), but I am thankful that He has shown me that as His child, I also need to forgive those who hurt me.  And, I have.

After all, Jesus forgave us, even in our sinfulness.  While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8)! 

I realize I need to forgive others; hopefully, you do, too.  But, this is a topic for another time! 

So is, the topic of various sorts of sin.


Until next time...
