It is wonderful how the Lord opens our eyes to the truth of His grace and forgiveness in spite of ourselves even when we are caught up in something we believe is true but is a product of mans sinful nature. Let us all learn a lesson from your testimony of God's grace and put to the test of scripture all claims that seem good on the outside but when compared to the Word fall short of God's plan. Yours in Christ, Don Sweaney

Hi, Just a note of encouragement to you. God is good and He wants more than anything to be number one in our lives so that He can bless us. He says in His word that the Government is upon His (Christ's) shoulders. As long as we trust in Him completely and ot in ourselves at all He will lead us in His righteous path. Proverbs 3:5&6. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understaning. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path." God wants so much to bless us and He will as long as we are doing our best to put Him first in our every step in life. Jude 1:21, "Stay always within the boundaries where God's love can reach and bless you." Living Bible God Bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you peace. In Christ, your friends, Berta and Arthur Nelson

Things can and do happen to us that we simply do not understand. We will never understand why this or that was allowed to happen. But we must keep our eyes fixed on God, and not on things of this world. Someday God will reveal why He let this and that hap en in our lives. But til then, we must not question God, but continue to ask Him to increase our faith and trust in Him. Such a beautiful little girl that God took so she could be with Him! I will look forward to met your beloved little girl in heaven. My she is in such a better place! We also must remember that doctors are there for a reason. My mother refuses to see a doctor for any reason. We must visit a doctor when the need comes up. May we keep our eyes and thoughts "Glued" on God, til He takes us h me! Amen. In Christ, Kerry Alan Schlegel

Even though what has happened has happened a little while ago, I'm sure thoughts still come to mind of how she's doing. Just as you already know, she's enjoying a Life with Christ and His Kingdom waiting for the rest of her family to join her. Death of loved one is hard - we'll all experience it. But, death isn't always the end of the greater good which is to be with Christ. I praise the God in Heaven that your Faith is strong and this encourages me to continue to look up and not at my self. Luke 1: 7 is a reminder that I'm not in control of this life, but God who knows all things has the power to take someone like me to His Home in Heaven...the same power He used to bring your daugter safely Home with Him. Take care with all you do and God Bless y u always! --brian

I am truly sorry for your loss. I lost my beloved husband 1 1/2 years ago from cancer. He had a brain tumor, and he went quickly. My faith in God has been a tremendous help. I KNOW that I will see him again in the next life. We have been sealed for Time a d Eternity, and we will still be husband and wife in the next life. My faith also teaches that our children will still be part of our family, and I KNOW this is true. Any missionary can teach you about the gospel, but it is the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit t at witnesses to our hearts about the truth. Truth is light and knowledge, the Light of Christ. Christ is our older brother, and He is definitely my hero! I love Him with all my heart. May peace be with you.

What a sad way to learn that God is sovereign and uses even the things of the world to bring healing and help to us. Trusting in His mercy and grace means that we trust also in His ways of providing for us. May the Lord give us all the grace to trust in H m as we ought, enabling us to live in the world, but not of it. May the Lord bless you as you spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This is a great page to set out warning to others who may be stuck in a Cult. I think you did the best you can as parents and did NOT fail your daughter. I think she may have been a sign, to tell you something was wrong, her purpose in life was to teach you this lesson and once you learned she was taken home. Now you can use this lesson to teach others. You are good people, good parents. Don't doubt yourselves.

I'm sorry to hear that you've lost a precious one as a result of believing in the "wrong" thing. I think that god has a in built "alarm" which tells us which route to take when you're in a dilemma. Exercise that wisely. No "normal" religion tell people to move to a certain place so as to avoid the "world". We are all given the freedom to choose & etermine our lives. Just live your life the way it should be now. A normal church will tell its believers to spread themselves amongst the unbelievers so as to bring the latter to God. I sincerely hope that you've gotten over your loss & lead a meaning ul life.
God bless you.

I believe God can heal ou in faith, but sometimes that healing means he grants it thru doctors... i have a undiagnoised fatuige disorder and possiblly lynphedema... i have been criticized for supposedly not preaying for healing or in faith ( which i have and i have felt very sure that will come once i can afford the testing again.. we have limited funds since i can not work) and even been told its all in my mind since i havent ben healed yet!!! some ppl do not want to here what i have peace about ( t at it will be healed via a doctor in the near future) and in the mean time they neglect to seei am in pain and have a difficult time liveing with this as it is and they make it worse...i feel bad for this family becaus ethey , in seeking God, lost a child because they listen to what man interjected into Gods word, which is something we all, regardless on denomination or religion, need to be carefu of.

I thank you for inviting me to your page. I had a friend who's neighbor's little girl died of cancer. Her parents wouldn't allow her to be treated by doctors, due to their religion. I honestly believe that "sometimes" God heals through prayer, but also be ieve he allows doctors to heal also. I have seen doctors make mistakes. That is part of being human. But I have also seen a doctor take one of my daughters and reshape her deformed chest, which was causing her heart not to function correctly. I have seen octors heal my other daughter of two disslocated legs. They have cured two of my daughters from pneumonia. That's just my children. Imagine how many other children have been helped by them. Though I have been angry at doctors for the mistakes they have ma e, I also thank God for them. I thank God for you for sharing your story to help others. GOD BLESS. JACKIE

I am so sorry about Debbie, but I belive that God has a meaning for everything and he was trying to tell u to believe other wise but you just didn't listen. I am 14 and have raised my self. My mom doesn't care about me, and I don't live with my dad. I am ow might be moving away from my mom so I can finish my life. I always fight with her and I need to get closer to her than farther away. I think this is best I see that u and your daughter had such a close relationship. Well I wish I had a relationship lik that with my parents, but that is what I am trying to do now. Well I goto go for now, but write me back if u can. God bless You whole family, and yourself. -Ashley | | |___|

I am a firm beleiver in the healing hand of God, I've seen the results of fiath, but I'm also a firm believer in taking care of yourself and if this "church" was encouraging this family not to go to the hospital for help then obviosly there was something wrong with the church. I'm sorry for the loss and I pray that the Lord is still on thier hearts in this time.

Dear Friends , I have not read all your site yet as it is very vast in scope. But I have been there and By the Lord set free. I pray your healing is complete , however if not , it does take considerable time. My heart goes out to you and I will be sending another e-mail with a request on it. I also will agree in prayer that the hurt you suffered , and Debbies life, will be turned into multiplied times over of deliverance for other souls captured in the throes of perhaps well meaning , but terribly , misinf rmed (so called)pastors. God Bless you , for this site. Bob

Sometimes it is hard to know what to do. You have learnt the hardest lesson of all and have lost someone you held so dear to you. I agree that science and doctor's are here for a reason and it is possible to pray for healing (and be prayed for) whilst st ll undergoing treatment from the doctor. God is a healer, but sometimes He chooses not to heal miraculously. Have faith in His healing power but use also the resources which He has provided here on earth for us (doctor's etc.)It is too late for Debbie n w, but God will heal your wounds in the future if you trust your life into his care. Beware of cults and sects which steer you away from the real world, instead find a church family with a well known base. Maybe, Anglican, Baptist or Uniting church. I m not the expert, I have not suffered as you have and you may not agree with me, but cast your cares upon Jesus for He cares for you.

I can't imagine the pain you guys are going through, but when I read debbie's story it reminded me of Rom 8:37 and Rev 12:11. I hope more people out there will come to hear of this testimony. Hang in there guys, Jesus loves you and is with you. Believe that Debbie couldn't be any more safer than where she is right now and someday all you guys will meet her there in the Father's house. My prayers are with you. May God bless, strengthen and keep all of you in his precious sight for always love, joy and peace in Christ from the far east ......... RACHEL.

Hi: I am sorry for your loss and understand your desire to warn others. However; I intercepted this message because it was sent to my 9 year old son. While I believe that it is important to share this type of information, I don't believe in random selection of individuals to receive it. I know that cults exist and we certainly need to be aware. I am thankful that our Pastor encourages us to look into the Word of God for ourselves to see if the things that he teaches are truth or error. Also, agreeing to disagree is perfectly acceptable a d does not need to be divisive. I will pray for you that the Lord heals your heart and gives you a greater understanding of His personal, loving character. Because of Grace, Tess

Hello Saints I received a forward of your website from my brother, and I was touched by your account of your Christian testimony. As for myself, not having lost a daugher or a sister, I can not begin to imagine the maturity you have grown into Christ's life to be abl to handle the death and a life changeing revelation. Truely, you have the Father's careing and guiding hand upon you. I hope your website continues to be a blessing and moving testimony to those in simular circumstances and a reminder that God cares for his children. Under faith I put "yes", because I am a Christian and I hate being seen as a mere denomination (of which, is Southern Baptist). Your Brother in Christ Daniel
