Accusations through emotional blackmail
Not feeling loved & not being loved are not the same
Jesus loved all people well
And most do not like the way he loves them
Was David’s zeal for the Lord imbalanced because his wife Michal despised him for it?
Was Job’s devotion to the Lord inordinate because his wife urged him to curse God & die?
Would Gomer be a reliable witness to Hosea’s passions of affection?
We have seen so much emotional blackmail
Twisted guilt trippers
Emotional blackmail happens when a person equates his or her emotional pain
with another person’s failure to love
They aren’t the same
A person may love well & the loved one still feel hurt & use the hurt to blackmail
Their definitions of love is their feelings
They constantly connive out from attempted love
Constant admissions of endless guiltIng for their raging instability
Emotional blackmail says
If I feel hurt by you, you are guilty
They teach through their odd control a no defense proposal
The hurt person has become God
Their unusual emotions has become judge & jury
Truth does not matter
All that matters is the sovereign suffering of the aggrieved
It is above question
This emotional blackmail is a great evil never to be please or satisfied
They dispose others in their constant irascible blaming
We need to defend people who are being wrongly indicted by it!!!
