Unruly neighbors.....turn to Christ.

 This is a copy of what I posted to another woman on a forum who was dealing with unruly neighbors and believes the problems are related to race of her husband:

The only one anyone can turn to when people or neighbors have racist problems is Christ.  My husband has Native complexion and he's been let go from jobs because he was a man (works with feminist natured women) and possibly for his Native American nature (unassisted birth, home-education, non-voting in US elections, home remedy, eating foods off of the land (danielon, cattail, fish etc).  Native American parents have been killed for refusing to public educate their children on US soil. Yes Native American blood line has sin problems too.  That is why Christ is there for all men.  Did he grow up in Native American culture....no.  He grew up in a Norwegian culture area on US soil.  Norway had its persecution of Christians problems too.....history of men hanging upside down in old castle structures and such.  St. Olaf is an old saint of the time.

In other words, Christ is the ONLY one left to run to when bad neighbors, in-laws or family are around.  God chooses to allow people to suffer in this life.  It is all for his glory, not for our own "human glory."  Sadly God has to call some people home when things get ugly here on earth.  Martyrdom of Christians happens today and it is increasing.

Mat_5:44  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Luk_6:27  But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Luk_6:35  But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

Definitely in this situation, STUDY what Christ said in the words in red.  Highlight every verb spoken by Christ.  Do what he says to do with the enemies and stick with it until the end of time.  Definitely teach your children the words of Christ and show by example what to do in this situation by being obedient to God's word.  If in the middle of it all, the neighbors are getting violent towards you or children call local legal authority.  If your husband senses that local legal authority will not do anything but tear your family apart or cause financial damage to you.....all you can do is submit to your husband.  In some cases you may have to live in a tent and off of the land if things are really bad and apocalyptic in a certain community.  Study http://www.ediblewildfood.com/ and other survival techniques for preparation of a absolutely horrible neighbor situation and for general good health and safety of family.  Go out every couple weeks camping to practice training your kids in worst case scenarios.

List the many ways you can "love your enemies" and do those things.  For example: have your children place flowers at the neighbor's door step, hand them Christ centered/bible study literature, print off recipes that will improve their health etc.

By the way, there is word around that the Jewish people are getting persecuted in Europe again.  They need to sell their homes and move because property is getting vandalized.  They have to pull their children out of schools because of bullying and belittling of the parents and even of children.  We all still need Christ's unending love.
