Hello ATS. Today i bring you two stories of personal experiences i have had while living here in Indonesia. Please note with these stories i not only
wish to make people aware but also ask for help and guidance in what should be done to get justice for the people affected. If you are a sensitive
person i feel these stories will affect you greatly so please be warned they are very upsetting. Let's begin.
Dians story. The tale of a dying girl.
Dian was 26 when she passed away, leaving behind a child of 5 and her family and friends who say "She left too young and things could have been done
to prevent her death"
Dian was the sister in law of my Chinese/Indonesian girlfriend, about 2 months ago my girlfriend requested we visited her in hospital. She was a sweet
and beautiful girl but it wasn't the sickness that was killing her is was the abandonment of her church. Dian was a faithful Christian, She went to
church every week and gave all she could hoping she would be blessed in her life and she devoted her life to god and her church.
When she was visited by the pastor she told her "I saw Jesus beside me holding a rose" The pastors reply was "This is the first step, Soon you will
receive another and it's your time to go" Two days later Dian received a rose with a note saying "It's time, Say goodbye to everyone" Signed Jesus
Christ. Dian in her weakened state was overcome with confusion and disbelief, Why would her god not save her and instead do this? Further
investigation shown the payment for the rose and note was done by none other than the pastor herself. Upon being question why she would do such a vile
thing the pastor informed the doctors Dian was delusional and turned off the oxygen machine herself saying "This is gods will" The doctors did
nothing until Dians father stepped in and turned it back on. The pastor after leaving told Dians friends and fellow church members that Dian was
defying god and they should not visit her or donate anything to save her, She told them to erase her and let go. She told her members that the devil
was corrupting Dian and if anyone visited her they would not be welcomed back at the church, The followers erased Dian from their lives and she was
abandoned. 2 weeks later Dian passed away.
Me seeking some form of justice for Dian investigated the pastors background and have discovered from some of her EX-Church goers that the pastor is
disgusting. That in church she points out people in the crowed and shames them infront of others, She has told them do not watch movies as demons come
into your head and posses you. She set them curfews on what time to be home/go to sleep, She has even done marriage counseling and blamed the men
saying "All women are innocent" and advised them to divorce their partners. She runs her church cloak and dagger, Always changing locations and only
letting the followers know the location and will not accept new members. This women is a disgrace to the church and has used her position time and
time again to control her "flock" She deserves shame but people are too afraid because they say she uses magic and witchcraft if people disobey her.
It sounds like the work of the devil. Not God.
Crushed dreams, The story of Isme.
Isme is 20 years old, She's a girl devoted to God and follows his word in her life and praises him with any reward or punishment she receives. I
recently met Isme as she is my girlfriends best friend. Isme told her of her boyfriend and his family. Her boyfriends brother is a pastor at their
church and the family is well known in their city Isme comes from a very poor background but works so hard supporting herself, her family and her
schooling. The church approached her and offered here $2000 to pay for her schooling under the condition she would work for them after she graduated.
She agreed and started to have faith in herself that her life will be great. 2 months into her schooling the church withdrew her money and demanded
she leave her education and instead work for them now. Having no choice she did so and they used her as a teacher/cleaner/office assistant/car
washer/delivery girl. Everything you can think of they made her life hell telling her "This is how someone like YOU can serve god, You won't get
better" Furious and enraged me and my girlfriend helped Isme any way we could, We told her how to fight her case but was only met with responses such
as "That law doesn't apply to our church" Finally the church has enough and visited her family. Speaking to her father who was the pastor of a small
church they threatened him if they fight they own this city and Isme and her families life would become hell, Her fathers response of course was "If
it's gods will i accept it gracefully" Isme seeing her fathers faith so strong refused to back down and after 4 months she won her freedom. She has
been demanded to pay back the $2000 with 50% interest which she actually never received. She saw this payment as a way to remove them forever so
agreed. She was then shunned in service infront of everyone as a girl "Not to let your children have as a role model" "A B**ch" ect ect
I recently visited Isme again with my girlfriend and she had told us of her boyfriend who had just broken up with her because his brother (the pastor)
has said it was Gods will. They called Isme and told her never to speak to him again as he had been "Purified" and they didn't want him corrupt. Isme
is doing well now and in a few months will move to Jakarta where she will be taken care of until she gets on her feet but alas she has already
befriended a fellow girl who is now the latest victim of the church and the story is exactly the same.
These stories are two stories i have experienced and been a part of myself and all things said are fact based and were real events. ATS i am seeking
your help, What can we do to bring justice to the victims and have these corrupt devil run churches brought down? Does anyone know who to contact? Who
to tell? What to do?
Anything that can help will be very much appreciated.
Thank you for your time and God bless you all.
