God redeems families

By Jeff Smith
Special to The PREVIEW

Dear Pastor,

This is to give you heads up on a family I have invited to church.

They have moved to this area to escape some creditors due to some very shady business practices. The father has been married twice and lives with both wives, plus two other girlfriends. They now have 13 children by all four women and the father considers himself a high priest of his own religion.

The oldest son has had immoral relations with one of his father’s girlfriends and his own father describes him as “unstable.” The next two boys are extremely violent, in part because one of the daughters was violated and the guy then wanted to marry her. Can you believe that?
