Backstabbers At Church

Back stabbing women are the worst.  I had twelve years of back stabbing behavior by supposedly christian women

at church.  It is so hard to describe the horrible behavior of these women however they made my experience at church

unbearable.  The lies, and  slander that they spread about me while acting like my friend to my face. I'm married with

two young boys at the time of slander.   People were all in on the slander and treated me like I wore a scarlet letter.

I did nothing to deserve this creepy treatment.  I believe the two women who started it all have severe personality problems.

They thrive on gossip, slander, and tearing others down  to make themselves feel good.  Hardly christian behavior.

Sadly this is accepted behavior in churches. I know this first hand. I dont want anything to do with "organized" religion, ever again. All I have ever encountered are liars, backstabbers and hypicrites, VERY few if any who were geniuine.

Well ! ? I would say my life has been ruined by mean church ladies' cruel,slanderous gossiping calumny more than anything else.<br />
One just does not wish to return to church...it has happened in different ways in different churches. Why would one wish to stay in snakepit? I feel churches are snakepits, yet I am a Christian,and very disillusioned and sad by it currently

TALK TO THEM.GOOGLE BIBLE QUOTES AGAINST GOSSIP AND SLANDER AND READIT TO THEM,AND THEN TELL THEM IF THIS GOES ON ONE MORE TIME YOU WILL SUE THEM.THE LAWSUIT THREAT WORKS.DON'T BE A VICTIM.AND KEEP ON GOING TO CHURCH.OUR ENEMIES ARE THE TEST OF OUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH,THEY ARE OUR BEST TEACHERS.

It happens everywhere ,called hating. This world has plenty of hate and jealousy. And then they go to church.

I think this happens everywhere these days: work, school, church, and even EP. I don't know why we can't be proud of our fellow sisters and build each other up and not tear one another down but jealousy is a biotch. I have been lucky that the only place I truly feel this is on EP but I see it happening to other women in my real life a lot and it sickens me. It seems it only takes one person to start the behavior and others follow. I personally do not want to hear the gossip or be part of the mob that is tearing someone down. That is just not part of who I aspire to be. I sincerely hope that you find a group of friends with this same philosophy. I hope things get better for you and that you are able to heal from this.
