Family - My Inlaws
I married into the Cabaneros family in October 2001. I was under the assumption that they were at least better than my own family so I did not worry too much.
Later I began to slowly realize how much unrepented sin this family carries around. I saw that they never confess any sins they commit, but instead deny any wrongdoing at all times. They prefer to be well thought of by men, rather than to be forgiven by God.
The mother of the family, Hilda Cabaneros, is a ¨closet Feminist¨. She works for the Philippine government pushing Feminism on the Filipinos (I found out about her dirty little secret by GOOGLING ¨Hilda Cabaneros FPW¨). She claims her unemployed husband is the head of the family, but really she controls everything. It is another lie to make their family look good which is their primary goal. This ungodly reversal of authority in the home, though cleverly hidden, has cursed this family and made it a shame to all Filipinos.
They stole a few thousand dollars worth of property I left in the Philippines. They tried to get me arrested and thrown in jail. They tried to get me to buy a couple of houses in the Philippines ¨as an investment¨ intending to take them as well (Americans cannot legally own property in the Philippines). They continually made up excuses to ¨borrow¨ money, but never tried to pay me back. The endless lies and filth covered with fake ¨Christianity¨ is just too revolting to tolerate.
Because they will never admit the truth of their sins it is impossible to have a normal relationship with them. This caused enormous problems in my marriage ultimately leading to divorce. I did not want to be divorced, but my wife, Cristine Risher, was so tied to her family that she chose to be faithful to her family rather than to her husband when he broke off relations with them. This breaking of her oath to God of lifetime faithfulness to her husband will follow her and curse her until she repents:
For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously. (Malachi 2:16)
In fact, her whole family and my own family have all cursed themselves by supporting her treachery.
God sees all the thoughts of the heart and He is more than able to bring desolation upon His enemies because their entire lives hang upon His grace.
I deeply pity them. How will they escape the fires of hell? They believe they are saved. I have warned them, but they choose to listen to lying preachers like Benny Hinn, Joel Osteen and anyone else who tells them what they want to hear.
They have ruined my marriage and my children's lives with their continual plotting and planning. I know that God will bring judgment on us all in time and I will wait upon His deliverance.
