What's New
Which Stephen are you?

Dear Stephen,

Who are you today? Why won't you call or at least drop me a line or two over the Internet, just to let me know you're doing OK, and are still interested in me? If you're not interested Stephen, your silence isn't the way to go about letting me know. Be the man you pretended to be before you met me. You could say something to me the way you had before with the other women, of your past after leaving them. Don't just walk out of a person's life and say nothing Stephen, or is this the way you do things. Was that the reason you shared that story with me of how you were locked down for several years and for five of those years, the people who meant the most to you in life; didn't even know where you were?

Because you didn't think enough of them to give them a call, or write a letter. Your own loved ones, what agony they must have been in, not even knowing whether or not you were dead or alive. Was it all just a hokes Stephen, the things you said to me the plans we made, the prayers we prayed? Where are you?, Who are you?, Please don't tell me that all the conversations we had was just pillow talk, and you, a God-fearing man didn't mean a word of what you said. Where's your integrity? I ask you again Stephen, Who are you? a wolf in sheep's clothing? Pretending to be God's man, calling who you think are lonely women, and telling them what you know they want to hear, especially Christian single women. When all the while having your own agenda, ulterior motives. I remember what you told me. 'You were an honorable man' and that your intentions were true, What happened with that?

I know you didn't come all that way here to judge me and then just walk out of my life as if I'm not worthy of you. Was that your intention Stephen, to come here, press your body against mine, Man of God, and to see just how far I'd let you go? then assume that if you wanted to, you could have gone all the way. You're wrong Stephen, I would have stopped you just like I have the others before you. I believed you to be a real Man of God the way you prayed with me over the phone before we even met. But of all the men in the World I expected more of you.

What is this a game you're playing with christian women, talking with them over the Internet, until we're comfortable enough to give you our phone numbers then telling us that you are our God given Man, after some time passes, visit us and put us through some kind of sick test. If you can get to base one with us, it's over because after all you are a 'Man of God' you know that lonely women will let you go all the way if you choose to. I do hope that I've read you wrong. But if I've read you correctly, then may God bless you in all that you put your hands to Stephen. Is this completely an active imagination working overtime?. I just can't believe you were that shallow Stephen, how can you judge women for letting you press yourself against them, why would you be doing that as a 'Man of God' to began with?

Shame on you Stephen, for what you're doing to women, judging us as unworthy? How can you compared yourself to the Stephen of old, not so, that Stephen was a compassionate Man. Remember, you are not the only scripture quoting 'Man of God' on the planet! even the devil knows scripture and trembles. 'Stephen the Apostle' had so much compassion that he asked God not to lay to their charge, to the very ones that were stoning him to death, but have mercy on them instead, to forgive them for killing him, "Then Stephen full of the Holy Ghost saw Heaven open up and Jesus standing there", watching him die to this life. What are you asking God to do for the women your are unmasking Stephen?

Say an earnest prayer, for us, you Stephens' out there, ask God to forgive us lonely women for letting men such as yourselves violate our bodies and then just walk away, go back to church seat in the pew, listen to the Pastor's message, if it's not you preaching the message yourselves. Ask God to heal our broken hearts we 'silly women, laiden withb sin'; who let men come in use us and leave their un-Godly spirits behind. For the Holy Spirit to clean up after, men such as yourselves when you are through with us.

Now, you know how we feel about your un-Holy hypocritical values, your self righteous filthy prideful additudes. Yes, you hurt us the way you treat us, you 'Men of God' like Stephen and you've gotta know that you're going to reap what you've swoned, Thank you for sowing more sorrow into our hearts, as if we haven't been hurt enough by Ex-husbands, ex-boy friends, ex-lovers of our past. You're suppose to be a healer of the heart, a deliverer of the captives Stephen, not helping the enemy to keep us women in bondage, hiding behind the Robes of Righteousness.

I will see you in the rapture/glory; because I've confessed before God asking him for forgiveness for letting you violate me. It Won't happen again, not by you or any other. My earnest prayer is that this story will put some serious thoughts into the heads of all the Stephens' out there especially if you're a 'Real Man of God' even if Stephen, is not your real name, but you know who you are; you need to ask for Gods' forgiveness as well, and guess what Stephens'that are out there, God is Faithful, He will forgive.

Your sister in Christ,
