Pat Robertson’s Bad Advice to women whose husbands cheat

5 Comments

Pat Robertson needs to retire…from being minister, teacher, prophet, preacher. Whatever titles he goes by. He’s been proven an apostate on many levels, now this — horrible marriage counseling to a woman whose husband has cheated on her.

I am dumbfounded by anyone who call themself Christian who gives this man any kind of credibilty.

I’m not a women’s libber, by any means. Yet, it is easy to see this man is such a …. dare I use the word … what the heck, yes, I’ll say it — he is a chauvenist. There were some things to consider here that Robertson overlooked.

“Stop talking about the cheating.”

From the very beginning he assumes instead of taking the time to figure out where the woman is coming from. How does he even know she is talking about it? Some women do not express everything going on in their hearts.

“He cheated on you, well, he’s a man.” That gives me the impression that just because he is a man she should just overlook it.

He goes on to tell her to focus on what is good about her husband in the first place. He even says is he handsome as if that alone is a quality worthy of putting up with in adultery. Does the husband provide food, shelter, etc? A total psycho could offer that much to a woman. Many women have been trapped by feeling completely dependent upon a man to supply her needs, having to take a man’s abuse in order to survive!

Does he take the kids to sporting events. Do you have a happy family? Obviously not, Pat, if the wife has cause to be suspicious of her husband’s activities! “Fall in love with him all over again.” “Reach out and touch him. Touch his face, hold his hand, look in to his eyes. Talk to him…” If the man has not repented, if he is not sorry, what woman in her right man would want to fall in love with that?!

Then he goes off on some vague understanding he has of what the situation was involving a stripper. “Give him honor instead of worrying about it.” I suspect even Robertson thinks his advice is a bunch of bull as his body language, his facial expressions of looking down are a result of either not treating this serious giving it the attention it needs, or he just plain does not believe what he himself is saying.

But here is the clencher: “Also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit.”

SO? And his point is? That it’s the norm and women ought to just suck it up and deal with it? That’s the impression I get. For the record, not ALL males wander. A lot of men are decent who would not even give it a thought. “Like it or not”? Yeah, that pretty much means suck it up, ladies!

“And what you want to do is to make the home so wonderful, that he doesn’t want to wander.”

Oh puleeeease. Tell that to the women who have made their homes an abode for their husbands and their men still are skunks.

Then he goes on to tell her to think of the tempations out there. He ends it with this cute little nothing:

“Thank God you live in America and good things are happening.”

Gee, that ought to make everyone of us just have the warm fuzzies all over. In other words, he is saying, don’t complain.

What a crock. What a complete crock of horse dung.

I have never had to deal with a cheating husband. So, I may not have the right to say what my advice would be to women whose husbands are cheating on them, but I will say what is on my heart: has he shown signs of true sorrow and repentence, brokeness for what he has done — not only before you, but towards God — who he had to hurt first, before he hurt you? Is he the one trying to make amends? And if so, are you able to see it? Can you discern his heart? It is just as important to be aware of true repentence as it is infidility.

If he is showing you true repentence, then meet him there. He will understand that trust is something he will have to re-earn and he should have no problem with that. If he has a problem with it, then too bad for him. As for you, ask God to show you this man through HIS (God’s) eyes. Everything about him. Ask that nothing be unreaveled to you, that God would show you what it is HE wants you to see and know. 

If he has not repented and you have been praying, and he still wants to be a cheating little weasle, then ask God how long you are to put up with it. Let’s face it… for one thing, there are sexual diseases out there now, that no one should have to be subjected to. Even the forgivness of a cheating husband would not allow me to risk getting a sexually transmitted disease. That’s just my opinion.  

Back to Pat Robertson. Still not convinced he’s a chauvenist with narrow minded views of women? Then look at this:

Seems like all the responsibility rests upon the woman who was the victim of adultery. Sorry, but when your spouse or anyone for that matter messes up, it is up to the guilty to gain the trust that was lost.

A man calls in and says his wife does not respect him, etc. Robertson’s very first take on it:

“Well you could become a Muslim and you could beat her.”

To even joke about such a thing — if he was joking in the first place — is not funny. Nor should it even be insinuated from the lips of a man who calls himself a follower of Jesus Christ.

Without knowing any details, Robertson goes on:

“This man’s gotta stand up to her, he can’t let her get away with this stuff.”

“I don’t think we condone wife beating these days, but something’s got to be done to her…”

There are always two sides to every story. My first question would be what is it you do that ticks your wife off so bad? Not that she automatically would have a right to behave a certain way. But there is more going on there than the husband was willing to share. PR did not even address this possibility.

Notice how PR said, something’s got to be done to her. This implies punishment. Not with her, which would be a form of an act of working together, of unity. But to her. Her also implying the woman is completely at fault when her side of the story has not been heard.

Female host ask why the woman would not want to talk about the problems. This in my opinion is a start to real communication. Why would the woman not want to talk to her husband, why does she threaten him? Does she have a possible medical problem, is she a total wack job or is she a woman trying to defend herself from an abusive tyrannical husband? Robertson does not even care to address these possible issues. Instead he assumes:

“She is just totally, uh, she’s rebellious. Chances are she was rebellious with her father. She was a rebellious child.”

Pat knows absolutely nothing about the woman in question. Yet, he assumes. For all we know, the woman may have grown up in an abusive home with an abusive father.

She doesn’t want to submit to any authority.

Once again, he assumes. What is the woman’s husband like? Is he a man of God led by the Spirit of God, a man who loves his wife like Christ loves the Church? Or is he a control freak? Is he abusive?

And she probably had temper tantrums when she was a kid and… you know the little girl, ‘I hate you, I hate you’ and she wants to slap her father.

Again he assumes. He assumes she had temper tantrums. Some children are not allowed to even show certain emotions. Anger may be one. Any tantrums they may have, may show much later in life. In spite of what people would like to thing is the every day norm, some fathers are not always nice to their little girls, and yes there may be times when a child may want to slap a parent, IF there is abuse going on.  

Well, that’s the same kind of thing. She’s transfered the father now…that’s the problem, she does not understand authority. When she was growing up, nobody made her behave and now you’ve got a 13 year old in a 30 year old body and she is acting like a child.

He assumes too much and he knows nothing. It could have been she grew up in a home where discipline went beyond the norm, where authority was not something she could trust. 

What do you do with that? You can’t divorce her according to the scripture… so I say move to saudi arabia.”

My dogs — if possible — are more qualified to offer marriage counseling than Pat Robertson!

Pat Robertson does not care how hungry your family gets

I put the following two videos out for one reason: A lot of people are facing hard economical times. Those who aren’t, will. The church has been taught the FALSE doctrine of “tithing,” therefore giving their money to many false teachers/preachers helping them to live off the fat of the sheep, living extravagant lifestyles. No where in God’s Word are we taught such a thing.

https://redeemedhippiesplace.wordpress.com/2012/07/14/the-truth-behind-tithing/

RWWblog:

“If you really want His blessing, be faithful with your tithe. And then you’ve got God as your financial partner and you have every reason to ask him for His blessing.”

Really? Where does the Word teach that? Jesus said, “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” — Luke 11:9,10 — I see no mention of Jesus saying anything about tithing. He simply said, ask, seek and knock. But so many today have been bewitched into superstition by greedy men. If you are a child of God, you have every right to ask Him for a blessing on your life. His blessing you is not contiguent on if you tithe or not.

“I don’t think you’re managing your money properly…..what can I cut back …am I living too big a house, have I bought too much car… I think you just need some financial help…”

What Robertson thinks is not important. What is important are you able to feed your family? Are you able to pay your bills?  In the meantime it is ok for Robertson to have how many cars? How many houses, boats or planes?

Don’t get me wrong. I do not begrudge anyone who has wealth as long as they have earned it honestly and respectfully. But for a man like Robertson whose income comes from tithes, books and CD’s he may make on any number of subjects, then to expect YOU to continue to give to him or any other man while your family has to do without, is WRONG. Flat out wrong. Show me where preachers or ANY man should have that kind of priority in your life.

Then there is this little piece of lying manipulation.

But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. — 1 Timothy5:8

Pat Robertson causes men to become worse than an unbeliever. Men like him are stumbling blocks to those who are trying to do what is best for their family. 

If anyone lets the likes of Pat Robertson or any other man put a yoke upon you by telling you you must give to them — especially while your family does without — then you have just let allowed yourself to become worse than an unbeliever.

Pat Robertson stupid comment on HAITI EARTHQUAKE

Is Pat Robertson correct with his judgments? IS God judging Haiti for any pact they may have made with the devil? I don’t know the answer to that and neither does PR. If God is judging Haiti, what makes America or any other nation better? NOTHING.

I’m only reminded of what Jesus told those who thought the tower that fell on some people were worst people or something. What did he tell them? He told them no, but unless they repent, something worse would happen to them.

Pat Robertson is “optimistic that something good” will come from this event. I’m sorry, I can not be that optimistic. I think it is easy for anyone who is not having to survive under such conditions to say, “something good will come.” I believe it is the beginning of great sorrows. It’s ok if you want to disagree. But go ask the inhabitants of Haiti what they believe right now.

PR’s STUPID comment about all the buildings been down so therefore it must be a good thing because they can start to rebuild. Just who does he believe will do the rebuilding? The United Nations? What a joke! Any man who appears on the scene will more than likely be an anti-christ!

Pat Robertson, do not take it on yourself to think you speak for the majority of Christians just because you re a high profile figure. Your ignornace brings reproach to the Church.

So Pat Robertson, you had better be careful, be very careful if you believe this nation somehow deserved this horrible catastrophe. Do you dare believe you are somehow exempt from such tragedy in your own life because you live in the United States? America — home of MANY idols and gods. Home of the godless and profane. Home and breeding ground of the harlot and the apostates! But no, you better be careful… we ALL better take heed! The judgements of God do come but there is NONE righteous, no, not one!

God in heaven, have mercy and help the people of Haiti!
