Sometimes There is Nothing I Can Do

How do you handle it when someone you have loved and looked up to your whole life disappoints you in such a way that it ruins your relationship? A relationship that meant so much to you that you have a hole in your heart that will never heal? The thing they did is terrible and it cannot be undone, fixed, or smoothed over by anyone but them? The relationship cannot be repaired… UNLESS you could go against your conscience and what you’ve always been taught is right, overlooking the transgression? What if people around you seem to be accepting the terrible thing they have done… are still doing? What if people around you are now living with this horrible thing that is openly displayed, ignoring it, and you cannot? What if you (an innocent party) are now the one who is looked at as “the bad guy” because you cannot accept the wickedness? The real “bad guy”, the one who made the awful choices, is now the “victim” in his mind, while you who have stood firm in your convictions, are seen as unforgiving and mean-spirited by the offender? How do you handle it?

    I tried to go directly to the site to comment, but I think it did not work.

    I remember so many things that have gone wrong in my day to day dealings with children at school—the poor little boy whose mother neglected him until he became belligerent and mean, the 13 year-old girl who thought nothing of having a baby outside of marriage, the lawyer’s son who robbed neighborhood houses and stole cars, etc. I could go on and on, but replies should be short. Right?

    Probably the reason many false doctrines enter the church is through those who are willing to compromise when faced with a situation like you describe. Perhaps they have a near relative who has an unscriptural divorce and thus an unscriptural remarriage (http://pilgrimstranger.wordpress.com/2013/02/04/a-paper-on-marriage-divorce-remarriage-dipalma/). Maybe a couple has been living together and they have a child out of wedlock. Both grandmothers want to welcome the sweet little baby, so they lay aside their conscience for the sake of the baby, so they say.

    Those are all hard situations! What if your own child has committed a crime punishable by law? What if your husband is guilty of stealing from the collection plate? Will you stand as a witness against him? Defiling the conscience is a dangerous thing (1 Tim. 4:2).
