Hello Friends and Readers,
Anne J. Bailey here. I have bad news for you. This is a decision I did not reach without a lot of deliberation, thought and prayer.
This will be my last article to appear on this Spiritswander Blog. I hope considering all of my significant contributions that I will be given the respect of not having my final article edited and that it will be published in its entirety as God intended it to be.
As Christians, we can not allow disrespect to our beliefs or freedom of speech. Just as the brave county clerk, Kim Davis, showed all of America, we must stand up to forces trying to silence our beliefs. We must always act in a manner that God instructs to act. God has spoken to me and has put it in my heart that I cannot allow Spiritswander to disrespect me and the Christian work any longer.
I will explain because the truth must be known. I am as mad as heck. This is a result of how I have been treated despite the massive amounts of feedback to my columns and my writings and that I allowed the Spirtiswander blog to reap the benefits of the attention from my work.
It is unfortunate, because great things could have come if Spiritswander had accepted my generous offer to take full control of the blog months ago. It could have turned into a great Christian voice on the Roloffs and life lessons that would serve the readership and earn the respect of the Roloffs.
My offer was not accepted. Yet I moved forward and contributed my columns all the time while I was never and have never been compensated for my contributions.
Furthermore, I made a simple request initially and then after it happened week after week and that is that Rap541 not be allowed to respond to my articles. I believe Rap541 is the work of the devil and seeks to defend Jacob and create chaos and turn constructive discussion into hateful attacks on the good Christians. Yet my pleas were ignored. Rap541 was permitted to invade my articles week after week.
I have received many emails from other commenters to the blog expressing their disgust for how the Spiritswander Blog is moderated and Rap541's behavior that is tolerated. Even people who disagree with my subject matter want Rap541 to be controlled and banned.
Despite the disrespect of ignoring my requests, I was the bigger person. I did as God commanded me and forgave and moved ahead trusting that the power of my message would make a difference and that evil forces would come around and be defeated just as Audrey Roloff is fighting evil forces hacking her blog.
A while ago, I was informed that my article might be delayed because a person named Benjamin submitted a journal entry from his deceased brother involving an alleged encounter with Jeremy Roloff as apparently Benjamin had asked Spiritiswander to publish it once he submitted it.
As a contributor, whose reputation is now linked to the Spiritswander Blog, I expressed my displeasure and my view that it should never allowed and before it ever be allowed that I be given the final editing and publishing decision. Jeremy's reputation should not be sullied in such a manner by someone who is clearly bitter and blaming their perverted mentally stabled dead family members on Jeremy's Christian actions which were completely justified.
This deeply disturbed me, however, since as far as I know the entry has not been submitted, I moved on.
The next arrow of disrespect was after I informed Spiritswander that my weekly column would be completed following Church on Sunday. Perhaps it was the reference to Church that caused the problem. I do not know. What I do know is that I was rudely informed my column would have to wait because Spiritswander wanted to compose the article featuring Jacob Roloffs distasteful tweet about his family and money from the show. Considering I was the regular contributor to Sundays, I graciously volunteered that I would be responsible for writing the article about Jacob's. I was once again greeted with disrespect and told no I was not allowed.
That was the final straw. God does not want me to be treated with this kind of constant disrespect. Therefore, I refused to contributor anymore content. I am writing one last farewell article. You never know what God will have in store in the future, but for now, it is not my intention to contribute my talents to Spiritswander Blog.
I will leave you in this final column, with parting words for several people both blog related and Roloff related.
The Blog you created could have been a glorious and would have celebrated God and been a positive force, if you had allowed me to run the Blog as I saw fit, but you refused. You disrespect Christians all the time and you have to live with your discrimination. God will deal with you for your sins. I have always saw your subtle and not so subtle attacks on Roloffs who are Christian and your promotion of Roloffs who are sinners who mock Christians. So quick to try to demonize Jeremy for alleged comments and actions, yet you encourage and praise Jacob as "honest" when all he did was insult good Christian people. In conclusion, you owe me an apology. I will be waiting.
It is shameful that Spritswander caters to you and allows you to spread your hate against good Christian forces and people. You can not fool me or many Christians. You are full of hatred against Jeremy, Audrey and Matt Roloff. If it was up to me you would have been banned from this blog a long time ago. The devil is in control. I truly believe that.
To the Roloff Family minus Jacob,
While I know you are good Christian people who have my full support I urge you to follow the example of Kim Davis. Stand for Christ. Do not allow yourself to be disrespected by Jacob. The latest stunt he pulled was beyond shameful. To allow him to get away with it and walk over you is not a way to stand proud for Jesus. I pray that you will do the right thing and call Jacob out for his immoral actions, his drug use and stop permitting him to throw dirt in your faces and the faces of all Christians.
To Jeremy and Audrey Roloff,
As mentioned above, I truly wish you would find the courage to stand up to Jacob and call him out. To allow him to disrespect Audrey when she thanks Jesus for the blessings in her life is not a proud moment. Be aware of the example your silence sets when you pretend as though he is a good person when influential young people are seeing his Christian bashing and his glamorization of drugs. Other than that, keep doing what you are doing. Your love is inspiring . It is tremendous to see young Christians following Jesus to give the Lord the glory. God has great things in store for you two. Stay strong and always put Jesus first.
To Tori Roloff,
Good luck with your life ahead. I hope you are sincere in your devotion to God. I urge you to read Timothy Keller's book on marriage. Know the type wife that God calls you to be. Don't fall into the trappings that Amy fell into that they allowed to destroy their marriage. You must pay attention Tori and not allow yourself to become a negative force to your husband.
Believe it, you have my heartfelt sympathies for the tragedies and loss in your life to date. With God, you can get through anything. Loss can bring you closer to God if you let Him help you.
Young lady, you need God in your life. I have heard that you are interacting more with Destiney Mueller and others associated with the Roloffs who are guided by their love of Christ. Seek them out. Let them show you John Mark Comer's church. Go. Experience. Open your heart. It will change your life. Go without Jacob Roloff.
Isabel, you must eliminate the evils in your life. Dedicate your life to the memories for your loved ones who are no longer with you. Live to make them proud. To do so, you must eliminate the negative forces and evils in your life. No good comes of the drugs. Get away from Jacob Roloff. Any of the material aspects of being in a relationship with Jacob is not worth the damage it is inflicting on your soul and on your life. Mark my words, you will never find true happiness with Jacob Roloff in your life. Do not allow him to define your life. Allow to God to define your life. Find the strength to follow the positive influences in your life and detach from the evil and the negative.
To Destiney and Jacob Mueller,
Stay strong. Do not let the negative and hateful people tear you down. Keep living for Christ as He loves. Teach your children to love and cherish God. Mistakes have been made, yet with God as the center piece, you can accomplish anything and you have already proved many wrong by letting Jesus have control. Let yourself be a positive influence on those around you.
To Jacob Roloff,
I have reached out to you. Others have reached out to you, Yet it is constant disrespect. As it stands now, you have no morals. You have lost all respect from people who count. You are disloyal. Nothing you do creates positive results for the world. Your latest attempt to slander your own family is something that you will have to ask forgiveness for just how shameful it was to tar your own family with that label. There is true darkness and evil in your heart and soul. I can see it. You can not fool me. God has made me wise to you. You have no morals. You have no conscience. You have no boundaries. In spite of that, I will still pray that something will happen that inspire you to see the emptiness of your life and your future and that you will wake up and let Jesus into your life and ask Jesus to fix your soul. All you are doing is bringing darkness and negativity to people; both in your real life (people who have attempted to take their own lives after having been exposed to you) and the damage you do to strangers who are influenced by what you put out to the world on social media. Wake up. Do something productive with your life. That does not mean get high and trash your family on twitter. God is the answer. You must come to that realization. I truly believe your life will be full of nothing but darkness, tragedy, hurt and pain because you are allowing evil and hatred to reign.
To the many Christian readers and supporters,
Thank you friends, brothers and sisters. I did this for you and for God. Never stop speaking for God and the truth. If you choose to remain, I will still support you. I simply cannot remain a contributor to the success of the blog if I am not given the proper respect and am not allowed a say into how to make the Blog a better tool that will expand the Kingdom of God. Thank you from my heart for all of your support and comments and emails. Never stop speaking for what is right and for God.
God bless you all.
