I am in an absolute rage that has been building for a while and is in full bloom. I attended a holiness- Arminian church for years, and when I left it, I shook the dust from my feet with disdain, glad to be free and to drink from a new, clean fountaiin, to wash away the bitter taste in my mouth -- not because it was Arminian by any means but because of my perception of the corruption there. Well, corruption? I had no idea of its exrtent until this week, and I doubt I will ever have a clear concept this side of eternity. The daughter of a dear friend told me many things that I saw yet did not understand -- things so corrupt and evil that I am shaking in anger, that such could be done by a man who claimed to be a minister of the Gospel, who led a people, who was trusted, lifted up, coddled by that organization, his evil acts hidden. I knew he had touched me inappropriately, but I had made excuses for him, not willing to believe the truth. Now, I know: he had no excuses. Things went on there, and we turned away, so that we would not see and thus be responsible to respond. In this holiness church, my children were told by a young married couple, who were SS teachers, that sex outside of marriage was all right, as long as they did marry. I am completely blown away by my own blindness and my determination to look the other way and to make excuses for the obvious. Be back.
