by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – My Viral Post
Editor’s note: Hola! I’m now in the tiny town of Copey Costa Rica, in the mountains south of San Jose. I haven’t thought about Lori’s nonsense for days now, except when snickering imagining just how hard and quick she would abandon the idea of total complete submission if her husband Ken were to order her to join him in a Peace Corp installation in a third world country like I have done. I’m betting that where the rubber meets the road she’d abandon her principles.
I’m currently living in what is basically a one room place with no air conditioning. It’s living like the locals, and while our accommodations are very primitive I am willing to live like this for a couple of months to help my husband fulfill one of his life long dreams – a Peace Corp trip. No way would Lori, or any of the other female cultural enforcers would do that. I know this is merely for a short season and that soon enough we’ll be moving on to a beach front house with all the modern accoutrements that I like.
Lori is still making hay and furiously foaming at the mouth that the ‘Hating Haters’ that dislike those pious little handwritten notes she loves to post on Facebook. She thinks people dislike them because they are enemies of God, refusing to even consider that the reason these things are dismissed as trite and stupid because her theology is poisonous and shallow.
Many believe that America is a place of tolerance, yet far too many are now trained by the system to attack any ideas that seem to go against their worldly agenda. I am comfortable standing on the Truth as I know Who has my back and He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world. They are being blinded by the enemy of their souls. We are commanded to speak Truth in love and plant seeds where we can. This is what I do and I love doing it. I also love watching God send thousands of new readers to my blog and Facebook. What Satan intends for evil, God can use to help pull His remnant together so that together we can support each other in the ways of the Lord.
Don’t feel badly for me when I get hateful comments. We have been promised in Scripture that we will be hated because He was hated. This is nothing new. Jesus spoke the most radical words at the nexus of history that exploded forth the greatest display of God’s salvation by way of the cross. They hated the creator God so much that they murdered His Son, and God turned their hate into the greatest good for mankind. Yes, pray for me and my ministry, and be an unashamed light in a world that is quickly growing dark with sin and blindness. Continue to do what the Lord has commanded you to do and store your treasures in heaven. The time is short. So recognize that anyone can replace you in a job, but no one can replace you as a godly wife to your husband and as a loving mother to your children.
