    i need to comment on recent caller re: mother (jehovah witness) feeling tormented by the enemy.
    i appreciate your response of recommending therapy, challenging Christ to help her, and perhaps it being a symptom of an abusive relationship,etc. however,
    i must add that the potential reality of spiritual warfare was not addressed. having that experience of spiritual oppression as a naiive new-ager, was the most horrifying experience of my life, it did however, lead me to my conversion. please know that this experience brought me to Christ and he has never left me! i only wish that the caller would know that her mother’s reality may be a real spiritual experience which could potentially be the pivotal moment of conversion. i also realize that to non believers, this admission seems like a mental issue. i do not share this experience with non believers as they look at me like i am crazy!!!
    God bless you all,

    Pamela, as long as your husband continues to get away with what he’s doing he is not going to stop, he’s playing on your conscience and your heart like a fiddler. My ex used to do some of the same things, his was an emotional affair and it only stopped when I stopped him, he was buying this woman flowers, Godiva, sending her money, taking her to nice restaurants only one that I know of. None the less I was hurt that these things were happening behind my back and again these are things that I had to find out on my own. He would make me feel so guilty like all of it was my fault, it took lots of praying, trusting God, getting support from other women, and counseling. You must make it plain that these actions are unacceptable, he is your husband not a boyfriend. I’ll be praying for you.

    Oh my goodness, Miss Sylvia please, please why in with world are you allowing this man to do this to you. You have been back and forth with him and he continues to be with other women, living with other women, drugs, I know you know you’re better than that, wanting to make your marriage work you got to work it not allow it to keep working you. How much longer are you going to be doing this with your husband. Get help for yourself and get your life together, let your husband continue building his own wrath, obviously that’s what he wants so in the meantime get yourself together and move on with your life. Stop making excuses, and for God sake stop allowing him to weaken you. Blessings to you.

    Pamela, your husband is taking full advantage of you so much so that he’s using it as an excuse to do the things he’s doing. My ex had an emotional affair which included him buying her flowers, taking her to dinner, sending her money, and I’m sure spending time together. I approached him about it and he tried to turn things around making it seem like I was crazy and it was my fault. I had to reset standards and boundaries, unfortunately, that didn’t help we’ve gone our separate ways since, however, if you don’t make things plain with your husband it’s not going to stop. I did seek counseling and support from a few trusted women, and of course trusting God and prayers. Try it and see what happens. I’ll be praying for you.
