The hidden half of domestic violence
How to have eternal life
We at Shattered Men have been
determined from the on set of this
ministry not to turn anyone away that was hurting from past or
present abuse in any way. It has been my plan to write something on
this for our web site for several weeks. Last night, I realizes the
urgency of doing so. You see, last night we had our regular
scheduled chat time and we had several people with MPD present. We
will discuss MPD in detail shortly but let me tell you about
something that happened last night in our chat that broke our
hearts. We had a person that got one of the people with MPD to
invite them into the chat. This person then started wanting to cast
out "demons" and would not listen to those God had placed in
authority in this chat room. Even after I told him that is was "my
chat room" (and those who know me know how I detest saying this but I
needed to stop the damage this person was doing) The only way we
could, was to leave our room and go to another one by invitation only
again. It is for this reason we are making this web page for MPD.
PLEASE read on and learn about MPD. These people are NOT demon
possessed. They NEED love just like you and I do....but they have
never found it... We will be including real stories here too. They
will be "their" stories. Stories of the abuse that produced this
condition. Stories from both the core and the "insiders" that live
within the core person.
Alters for the most part exist to allow the core to exist. Yet they
want to exist too. When one comes on a zealous but well meaning
Christian that the first sign of MPD, they want to cast out demons,
they see this "threat" as real as one who would want to murder you or
I. When you are I are doing as much as we can to live for the Lord,
and some one tells us just as they did to Christ, that we are doing
our work for the Lord by use of demons, this hurts us. Well folks,
it hurts the alters too to be told they are demonic. Yes, some are.
MOST are not. We can do great damage when we try to work with
someone with MPD and we do not know how. We can set back the work
others have done for months or even years with a few moments of
intense interaction without finding out what we are doing first. I
ask each of you...would you defuse a BOMB if you were not taught how
to do so? Please do not try to merge or blend or cast out demons
out of our precious people with MPD. They have already been hurt
Talk to them. Talk to the insiders and get to know them. Read the
information below and see how they suggest helping them. But please
know these alters are as real as you and I. I have seen the full
gamut of emotions and love and concern. I was there when many
alters accepted Jesus as their savior also. NO I do NOT understand
it, but I do not understand my Lord's Love for ME either. I can not
understand why God would love humans so much that Jesus came to die
as one. BUT I accept it.
I have seen alters care enough for the core they were willing to give
their "life" so the core could be well. This is as much sacrificial
love as any I have ever seen. Alters do not normally age, yet I have
seen them want to grow up to help teach others better.
MOST of all, I have been asked by some, "ken, will I have a soul
and a body too when my host goes to heaven so I too can have eternal
life." "Will I finally be my own person"
I really do not know the answers to this question, but I sure do know
what I want the answer to be. I have seen more love in these altars
then I have most Christians for each other.
I so want to assure everyone that this will not be changing the focus
of Shattered Men. It will remain the same as it was when it was
started on Oct 31, 1999 but it adds a new dimension so we do not
overlook any of our hurting people. It appears we will be having
moderators in our group that will focus on different aspects of this
ministry. Some are not adapted to working with MPD while others may
not focus on other areas as well. but I do rest assured that GOD will
place those here that HE wants...so that NO ONE will be neglected and
that all can be able to see that JESUS indeed loves THEM!
(This is a work in progress. It is a labor of love but I did want to
get something on line as soon as possible, It is my desire to be
able to let YOU the reader FEEL what it is like to be MPD). Please
pray for our precious friends below, both the cores and the insides.
They are ALL precious in HIS SITE!
