Some advice please!
Please pray for us.. We have decided that we are going to stop going to 1 of our 2 Bible Studies we have with her..
We have been doing 2 Bible Studies with her for up to about 3 months.. ( My hubby hurt his arm at work 3 months ago, so Workers Comp, made him only work 8 hours a day.) So back then, we were able to do that. But as of tomorrow, my hubby is back to 10 hours day.

Which is funny.. Lee, (our Bible Study leader) took me aside and told me that we shouldn't be looking for a house, and that we shouldn't try and start a family, and that my hubby (who is a pipefitter) should quit his job, and find a lower paying, and a job that only works 8 hours a day...
She told me to, "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you."

I don't think I believe in that.. Well, I do, but not from where she is coming from. I believe that you do so much, and God will gladly help you out with the rest.. At least, we do our part, and God will help us out! That's how I see it..
(Correct me if I am wrong.)

So anyways, hubby and I both decided that we are going to Lee that we both feel led not to continue with one of our Bible Studies.. But, Lee is going to tell us, that we are being attacked by Satan.
And if we tell her that we have no time during our busy days, she is going to tell us to get a new job or she will arrange to come over on a saturday or sunday.. Lee is REALLY, REALLY persistant... If we are busy one day, she will tell us that she will come over / and invite herself over ( and even show up on our doorstep!!!! ) - UNINVITED!!!!!!!

That really intimidates my hubby, who is a new believer.. He feels that she is watching him like a hawk..etc..

I love the fact that Lee is so 'radical' but, she is too radical for us at the moment.. I believe my hubby needs baby steps.. Lee expects us to be at her level with Radicalness like yesterday!! And she gets mad if we don't pick something up as quick as she does. Lee believes we have to spend every living moment with God. She does have a point there.. But, everybody has a life, right?? I need my hubby time.. I love my hubby.. I love God, but knowing Lee, she will arrange something with herself, and show up on our doorstep every other day..

Please pray that I can get through to her.. And, right now, at this point, we are thinking of cancelling her all together, and stopping with that other Bible Study we have.. So, please pray that we make the right decision!!!
Thanks!!

Interesting. You're seeking advice, it's a Christian site, more than a thousand views... not a single response. Are you monitoring this thread, 'princess'? I mean... can we speak here (myself having my issues and that's why I came here after years, but I just can't help offering help when it's wanted, whenever it's needed)?

Hi Raphael.

You are replying to a topic started in 2011 that has never been answered until now. Who knows why? Maybe it got lost in the shuffle of rapid postings back then when the feed moved quick.

Why did you reply? If you want to bring up your issues, start a topic The feed moves barely at all sometimes and there are a few here, who will talk with you. Well...actually there are only a few here, who respond at all to anything. But, we will if you really want to talk out some troubles you have.

As for the OP, I hope she had the good sense to leave what appears to be a cult and instead attend a more moderate church, where people consider personal belief just that, even as they welcome newcomers and form a community of support in name of Jesus. This church and Lee are all about control of people's lives and that is a cult.

Wow, Raphael, you last posted in a 2004 topic in atheist debate!

How has life treated you? Are you still in Brazil?

How did your educational program work out?

This site has changed a lot since then. Why not join us in discussion? There is always room for more viewpoints and opinions.
