You know what is missing from those who call themselves Christians? There is more than one right answer. But after seeing the inside of ministries, seeing what goes on among so many who defend “truth”, experiencing the hatred, malice and slander of those closest to us, I think the biggest answer is love.
Many things are more important to Christians than love: image, fear, territory, causes, finances, free goodies being handed out. The nightmare we have lived is a case study in the absence of love. My husband, who is the most loving man I have ever known, said to me the other night, “Know what has been missing from this scene? People with love in their hearts for us.” And Tom was right. There is nothing that has happened that could not be solved, healed and forgiven if there was love for truth and love for us. There simply is none from the leadership at VCY.
We have had love from others outside VCY America who have seen what has happened—love from those who know who Tom and I really are, not the ugly caricatures painted by others for their own protection. Thank you to the loving friends God has put in our lives. We’re richly blessed by you, and that is what helps us to keep going, past all of this.
“By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” ~ John 13:35
