A Little One to Pray for This Lord’s Day
UPDATE Sept 2021: I have come to believe that Jeff Crippen does not practise what he preaches. He vilely persecuted an abuse victim and spiritually abused many other people in the Tillamook congregation. Go here to read the evidence. Jeff has not gone to the people that he spiritually and emotionally abused. He has not apologised to them, let alone asked for their forgiveness.
Yesterday one of our ACFJ team members had the following experience in a public place:
There was a man sitting outside with his 10 yr old daughter. The girl had her head in her hands and had her back to him. He was giving her a lecture. Every word came to me through the breeze–
You will never understand what has gone on between your mother and me. I don’t care what she says. She is a liar. It’s all bull&%*#.!! You tell your mama she’s a liar! I would kill myself if you believe her! I could fill your ears right now with all kinds of things you don’t know about!
So, this Lord’s day, let’s all remember to pray for this little girl, for her mother, and pray against this abuser. How do we know he is an abuser? Perhaps in your comments to this post you could identify some of the abuser markers in what he was saying and doing to this girl. This will serve as a good exercise for us too. But primarily, we want to pray for the oppressed here today.
Mat 18:10 See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
