I pray to be a Berean. I also pray NOT to be a Jonah. If God will convert and change the hearts, and there will be a turning to Christ and repentance, who am I to judge? I am only to speak the truth in love and wait. I beg God to protect me from bitterness and pride, and hope to care with all my heart for my former church. If they change and never come to me and say, “thank you for showing us the truth and standing for the truth” I cannot be frustrated. I hope actually to be forgotten by my former church, left behind, never mentioned again. I hope that they will claim, if there is true repentance, that they were convicted by God. What I did may have stirred them up, and pushed them further from God. I do not want this, but cannot stay quiet when I see untruth. So, I wait, but do not wait for wrath. I wait and hope for change. Honestly, I was hoping the church would fail and everyone would leave the pastor all by himself. That is what I was hoping. Now, I am hoping for God to work in the hearts of those attending, and hope for many more eyes to be opened. If there is anyone who can convince and change the focus back on Christ, then I am for that whatever it takes for as long as it takes.
