Fracturing relationships of any kind through manipulation is a serious offense to God. There are an increasing number of divorced parents, many who claim to be Christians, who are systematically alienating their children from the other parent. They lie and manipulate the children to control them and keep them close. This is wrong and we need to speak up. If you’re a child who hasn’t seen your other parent in a long time and all you have is one side of the story, start asking some new questions.
