I have been so conflicted about writing what you are about to read. I finally went to my daughter to ask permission to write about her traumatic experience in the church. Yesterday, she gave me permission to tell her story.
Seeker Friendly Church
Back in the early 90’s, we had heard of a church in our area which had a large and very active youth program. We have 3 kids, and they had even heard about this church and wanted to attend – and so we did.
Our daughter was 12 years old when we first went to the church. I am not naming the church in this article. They were made aware of what happened about 3 years ago (when we found out from our daughter).<!–more–>
opinion: We have had our fair share of churches because of how we teach on the bible. We were called “doom and gloom”. This is where LHWM online came from.
“We are a ministry that teaches God’s word through living scripture from the Holy Bible that leads and points to Jesus, not us. People are dying, hurting, struggling, not knowing, lost, abused and much more in this fallen world we live in. Time is running thin and more people are facing life changing events each day. If you are looking to be set right with God, restored and reinstated then Holy Scripture will do this (Galatians 6:1). We provide that necessary teaching.<!–more–>”
We do not sugar coat the Word of God and we are what Ezekiel says”
Ezekiel 33:6 “But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.” (Amplified Bible)
Cannot express how important it is to make sure the church your attending serves God and fears God not man. One of the churches we attended made a statement on “God will bow before us“. This was very disturbing when I heard those words and it disturbed me on the inside. Again be aware of where your attending church because God will hold us accountable.

TWO TEENAGERS WANTED IN CONNECTION WITH VIRAL VIDEO POSTED ON FACEBOOK LIVE THAT SHOWS THE SEXUAL AND PHYSICAL ASSAULT OF A WOMAN ARE IN POLICE CUSTODY, ACCORDING TO THE GULFPORT POLICE DEPARTMENT
EDITOR’S NOTE: Social media giant Facebook takes great pride in thier “community standards”, even going so far as having international ‘deletion teams’ to remove “hate speech” and other things they deem offensive. Yet somehow, they seem unable to prevent dozens of live videos over their networks showing rapes, suicides and sexual assaults. Seems to me that creating an algorithm to detect certain trigger keywords when spoken to cut off the stream shouldn’t be so hard to do. So why aren’t they doing it?
Haleigh Alexis Hudson, 19, turned herself into police around 7 p.m. Wednesday. She was arrested on charges of felony kidnapping and sexual assault. Ezzie Johnson, 17, was arrested by police around 8 p.m. Wednesday. He faces a charge of felony kidnapping.<!–more–>
THE UNITED NATIONS, HEAVILY SUBSIDIZED BY U.S. TAXPAYERS’ DOLLARS, HAS FACED A WIDESPREAD CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE PROBLEM FOR YEARS AND REACTED WITH LITTLE MORE THAN SILENCE.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Have you ever wondered why, after a disaster like a hurricane or a tsunami in a third-world or developing country, that so many “charitable organizations” like the UN and the Clinton Foundation rush to go there? It’s to help the victims, right? Wrong. It’s so they can go there and exploit them while they are helpless, with a special focus on the children. NTEB has spoken to numerous child sex trafficking prevention groups in Haiti who have told us that the main customers of child sex trafficking establishments are United States congressmen and senators. The United Nations “peacekeepers” are raping children around the world, and they are protected by the UN so they will never face trial. This is what YOUR tax dollars are funding. Just thought you’d like to know.
On February 28, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres confirmed that UN peacekeepers and civilian staff faced 145 allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse impacting on 311 victims in 2016 alone. There are nearly 40 cases so far in 2017. Many of the victims, by the UN’s own admission, are children.<!–more–>
A monk from Riverside and an Australian man looking to buy a 6-year-old boy were among 238 people arrested during a two-month operation targeting child predators in Southern California, officials said Monday.
Conducted by the Los Angeles Regional Internet Crimes against Children task force, “Operation Broken Heart III” targeted offenders wanted for the sexual exploitation of children, child prostitution, sex tourism and possessing and distributing child pornography, said Deputy Chief Matt Blake of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Among those arrested during sweeps in April and May were entertainers, community leaders, white-collar professionals and clergy members, said John Reynolds, acting special agent in charge for U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations… read more
While the kid game politics are going on, children ( toddlers) are being brutally tortured. It makes the heart sick that the truth keeps forcing its way to the surface only to be pushed back down by the paid for media. Dr. Phil did a brave and honorable thing.
After ISIS captured his city in Syria, one man thought life would be good, living in their self-proclaimed caliphate. But when he witnessed the mistreatment of female captives as sex slaves, he became disillusioned and fled.
“When they (ISIS) first came, things were very good,” Nizar* told the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism. “It really felt like Islam. We started going to the mosque. A sheikh would give lessons in the Qur’an.”
The sheikh taught him ISIS was in the right and there would be no injustice. Nizar and his wife thought they could go on with normal life…. [read more]
LHWM Prayer: Lord Jesus we pray for these women and children. Lord we pray that inside they call out to you and you rescue them. Lord help that man to do what is right unto you Lord, and give him the courage and strength to do so. They are not objects Lord and You Lord Jesus are Kind and Loving.
