This woman expressed her commitment to the church and a devotion to God. She saw no reason why such a fate was upon her. However, it seems to me that she should have heeded the scriptures. However, she chose this grinning bad character with a checkered past and ignored the biblical instructions she proclaimed to love. 2 Corinthians 6:14: "Do not be unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and lawlessness have in common? What fellowship has light with darkness?"
If you go into a dark room where does the darkness go? It disappears it must leave. It can only return when the light is removed or the light switch is turned off. Darkness and light cannot occupy the same space. Ephesians 5:7-8 "Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light."
The answer to end an abusive relationship rests in good sense and the police. However, the woman in question needs to be rescued not only from the abusive man but also from her own gullible and Christian half-stepping behavior. Unfortunately, she has taught this man that he can walk over her at will. Meanwhile, according to what I gathered from the conversation, she secretly had solace and comfort in the company of another man as a remedy to her unhappiness. This poor confused woman is now also putting the health and safety of another innocent person in jeopardy. Personally, I may be wrong but I don’t see how she can put prayers in the middle of her handmade sinful and foolish mess.
Either way, no man who is selfish and abusive will ever change on his own volition because he has no reason to change especially when he’s being fed and housed. Most likely, he’s comfortable being who he is and has never suffered any real consequences. Although he might not be religious, I would guess that he has prayers to the devil for such a good fortune and thanks Satan everyday for the find of his benefactor. The fact is, tough consequences changes things. Although prayers will give this woman emotional hope for relief – it’s the tough consequences that changes abusive situations.
One thing is clear... abusive people will treat you no better than you treat yourself. There’s an old adage that instructs, “You can’t stop birds from flying over your head but you can’t stop them from building a nest there.” People who do so are sending mixed messages to their brain, which can lead to a mental breakdown. The solution to such problems is to take a stand through law enforcement coupled with a restraining order and follow-up with serious counseling through a mental health program. Unfortunately, there is no help for this willfully gullible woman if she continues to refuse to listen to reason except to have her life insurance paid in full.
