Matt soon returned letting us know everything was ready and it was time to get started. While Bev and Matt’s team headed to the antiques store, Pastor Haggart, Melanie’s group and I huddled in the living room with Mari. He quietly questioned Mari all the while intently studying her every move.
As they talked, he picked up a binder and took out a piece of paper. Handing it to Mari, he asked her to read and sign it, which she did. It was a contract with God to renounce Satan. Standing, Haggart brought out a small vile of holy oil and, saying prayers, blessed the contract.
Mari breaks down after signing an agreement renouncing Satan.
It was then Mari started to weep. “I can’t breathe,” she whispered.
He brought her to the sofa and asked her to relax. He asked why she was crying. She told him it was hard to sign the contract.
When asked what was the most difficult part, she responded, “When I had to renounce Satan. I felt so guilty.”
Slowly the Pastor began drawing Mari’s past into the open. What she revealed was profound and very personal. At this time, we would like to thank Mari for her bravery and willingness to let her story be told.
She grew up in a good home and loved her family. Religion was a strong part of her upbringing.
In her teenage years life became more difficult. She attended a religious school where she was subject to the relentless torment of other students. She admitted to hating the school and the associate pastor.
This one Speech, brought into Christ, the soul of Best vacation in the USA that Young Gentleman! Truly, if your Dying Lips, may utter such Dying Words unto your Best vacation in the USA Children, who can tell, but they may then be brought into Christ, if they were never so before! But, lest you should have no opportunity to Speak in a Dying Hour, why should you not Write such things, as you would have them to Think upon, when you shall be Dead and Gone? An unknown deal of Good, may your Children reap, from the Admonitions, that a Dying Parent may Leave unto them. VI. Parents, be Exemplary: Your Example may do much towards the Salvation of your Children, your Works will more Work upon your Children, than your Words; your Patterns will do more than your Precepts; your Copies than your Counsels. What was then said unto Pastors, may very fitly be said unto Parents, in Titus 2:2, In all Things show thyself a pattern of good works; and in Timothy 4:12 Be thou an Example in Word, in Conversation, in Charity, in Spirit, in Faith, in Purity. It will be impossible for you to infuse any Good into your Children, if you appear void of that Good yourselves. If the Old Crab go backward, it is to no purpose, for the Young One to be directed to go forward: Sirs, Young Ones, will Crawl after the Old Ones.
