“She suffered and died in the Lord. Away from the criticisms surrounding her death, whether she should have left the marriage or not, we don’t know what God told her… Whether God asked her to remain in the marriage or not will only be revealed in eternity…. Someone would say “God cannot say that”, Really? Well done Jehovah’s classmate.
Brethren, that was her own cup of suffering… For everyone has his own portion of suffering for the sake of Christ! If you dodge your own cup of suffering, you may not receive the well done reward”.
However, Pastor Newman after several hours decided to take down the post from his Facebook handle. While giving his reason in another post, he said that he wouldn’t want to be taken as one who supports domestic violence.
