Did you guys have a good time together?

Do you feel any seed of the Gospel might have been planted?

Share with us and we'll pray with you for those you love.

Re: What Would You Do?

Interesting thread. Right now I am aware in my town of a no win situation regarding some of the same dynamics. A woman was married to a terrible man, had a son who is know probably about 4 years old or so, then divorced the guy. After which she decided she is a lesbian and is now a couple with a lesbian who is the daughter of a mortified Baptist pastor.

The lesbian couple is fighting the father of the son in court for custody. On the one hand the perversion of the poor kid being raised in a lesbian household horrifies me but it gets complicated because the father is horrible. Only makes about $43,000 a year as a teacher but is spending about $1700 per month at bars and liquor stores and many of those receipts show those purchases at times he had his son .He takes no interest in the son's education (never goes to a parent teacher conference,etc), or anything else about the son. He is fighting for custody to only spite his ex wife and punish her. Personally I wish there was a third option and this poor kid could be raised in a good heterosexual enviroment.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

While that would be ideal, the functional non-abusive parent who presents a functional example of a productive citizen should have full rights to custody, regardless of sexual orientation.

At least, that's my more libertarian opinion.

On a spiritual note, if God is drawing the child's soul, the child will have his encounter with the Lord one way or another. Perhaps what he is going to experience will prepare him to realize his need for a Savior. Never stop praying.
