To my dear Sisters and Brothers with DID/MPD, and survivors of SRA,
When people in ministry clash with each other, it is a dangerous time for those who are near them and trying to heal, because they may be swept away in the confusion.
Don’t choose sides without evidence, and don’t throw stones, but hide in Christ, the Rock of Ages, until the dust settles.
Pray, pray, and pray some more.
The most well-meaning, loving people can get it wrong.
Don’t blindly follow anyone! And just because you find fault with someone, it is not right to just reject anyone who loves them. This is such a device of Satan to destroy relationships, and tear down our house with our own hands.
Jesus gave us a method to reconciliation, and when people come to you to get you to choose sides, you will do them a huge favor if you point them to the scriptures!
Matthew 18:11-20 gives Jesus’ own words on the subject:
“(11) For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.(12) How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?(13) And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.(14) Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.(15) Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.(16) But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.(17) And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.(18) Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.(19) Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.(20) For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:11-20
These instructions from our Master apply to all parts of the Body of Christ! Even to the Church without walls, or the internet church. The moment we decide we are above the teachings of our Master, we are already on the path away from fellowship.
For those who are trying to get healing, who are victims of SRA or other forms of trauma-based mind control, look to Jesus and try not to allow yourself to get swept away in these battles. The Lord will never leave your nor will He forsake you, and when people settle down and come to their senses, they may yet be able to be of service.
It all boils down to this: Keep your eyes on Jesus! HE is the Author and Perfector of your faith!
