Savage hatred

Why is there such a savage hatred against an institution that is apparently like all the others?

It is common for people to dislike, annoy and even anger each other.

But it is not common to have such a fatal hatred against an institution.

After all, what harm has the Universal Church done to people?

How can anyone explain this hatred?

From my point of view, this hatred is not against the institution, but against its leader.

They simply hate me.

There is no reason for them to hate me.

They hate me because I am not of this world.

If I were of this world, they would certainly support me.

Jesus said:

"If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." John 15.18-19

 

Here are some examples:

Good morning, Bishop!

I went through a similar situation.

My father did not like that I went to Church. One day, there was a youth group vigil, and I wanted to ask him to go.

The answer was "NO!"

So I asked him: "If I were going to a party, I’d understand if you said ‘no’, but I want to go to Church and serve God!"

So he replied: "I’d prefer that you were a prostitute than have you go to that Church!"

Yes, those words hurt. But I prayed for him for about 13 years. A while back, he started coming to church with me, while he was here in Japan.

It may take some time, but God does not fail!!

Her story is like mine. My husband did the same thing.

When I first went to the Universal Church, I was full of demons. My husband went with me. Within a year, I was baptized in water, learned how to use my faith, was delivered and received the Holy Spirit.

He did not want to continue going. He said, "they ask for too much money“. He went to the Assembly of God church. Every time he went, he would come home feeling more stressed because his goal was for me to go with him, but I didn’t.

I told him that if I had an encounter with the Lord Jesus at the Universal Church, that is where I was going to stay!

He came home one day and suggested that I left the Church, and even though I did not want to go with him to the Assembly of God church, we would go to any other church. Otherwise, he was going to get a divorce.

He tormented me for 1 month, nonstop, and I continued to say ‘no’. He left, went to court and scheduled a date to sign the divorce papers.

I made it very clear to him: "I do not want to get a divorce, but if you think this is reason enough for us to separate, then, so be it”.

This happened two years ago.

I remain firm with my Lord, and he is in the world. After all, my life is in God's hands, and I would not trade anything for God.

Hi, bishop!

Like Andreza, my ex-husband did the same thing: either I chose him or the UNIVERSAL Church.

I was married for 25 years, and I have now been separated for 1 year and 8 months. It was the best choice I made to be married to Jesus. Every day I discover how good it feels to be a new woman of God.

Bishop, this happened to me too. I had an 8-year-old daughter and my situation was precarious. I ended a marriage with a man that I loved more than myself, but not more than the LORD JESUS. This is why I chose him and I don’t regret it one bit. I am with Him, and He is with me until the end.
