He can continue to read everything you post after you place them on ignore. Feeding the trolls only incentivizes them to continue. I agree that we all have our limits. I admire your fortitude, and patience, empathize with your frustration, have only gratitude for the "ignore" feature on this forum, and even though I regret having to resort to ignore them because they may continue to post insightful or entertaining content, I find that engaging trolls isn't healthy or beneficial.Don't forget to pray for him too. Sometimes I think the forces of darkness can blind a believer. Sometimes a doubleminded state can be in the mind of a believer and know it not. Sometimes pride keeps a believer from receiving His words to repent from that he has spent many years serving. I mean who wants to believe they wasted their service of love and finance in supporting a lying church taking advantage of him?
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
2 Timothy 2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
1 Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. 25 Brethren, pray for us.
But yeah.. when an unbeliever in this forum is obviously trolling and not being sincere in asking questions, I trust the Lord to know when to put such a one on ignore. When fellow saved believers insult & antagonize like a troll, I put them on ignore. It takes a lot for them to get on ignore, but saved believers can be put on ignore if all they do is be carnal towards me.
Although there is a point when someone is not hearing me, that I am not sure how long in patience I am to wait until I am to withdraw, but Jesus helps me to trust Him as my Good Shepherd to direct my foot steps if I make the wrong decision, on not withdrawing or even when withdrawing.
Proverbs 16: 9 A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.
2 Thessalonians 3:1Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: 2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith. 3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil. 4 And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you. 5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. 6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. 7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;...
13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. 14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. 15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother. 16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.
He hadn't replied to my post which isn't so bad, but when I saw that he was replying to your posts with pointless, useless content, it became apparent that they're not serious about engaging in an honest discussion.
