I remember when I was young — I know hard to believe that was so many years ago , but it was a different problem then — your parents had the most to do with teaching children not to make fun of others and not to bully , I have seen in schools more involvement in this recently with wall posters against it , teacher cadet programs where students help with mentally handicapped children and see first hand how loving these students are and how they have needs we should all care about , with all this , one major problem is leaving the Bible out of public things of course , I remember my dad reading to me about how you should not be mean to a dumb-brute somewhere in the Bible , he found so many things , and back then the hard way he had to read it all , and remember and make notes of what he read , where now-a-days we just put a few words in on a search engine site on a computer and there it is . I think we should really as Christians make good use of computers and that is one way to fight against the pornography that is so prevalent , teach our children to do the same , the devil is working so hard against us in all this ………..

Dear Nicholas,

May godly mothers and fathers continue to teach their children the truth of Scriptures as your father taught you.
Amen.

Mike January 30, 2017 at 6:16 am

The bible says theres a time and place for everything so when is there tume to fight back and crack a bullys head wide open, like david and goliath? Alot of christian lives couldve been saved if they wouldve fought back.

Jack Wellman January 30, 2017 at 4:44 pm

Hello Mike. No, my friend, please don’t seek revenge. Rom 12 and elsewhere (Matt 5:) says we are to pray for our enemies, do good to them to despitefully use us, and bless them that curse you. If you seek to get revenge, you are breaking God’s law (Rom 12). Maybe a lot of Christians might have been saved, but God tells us turn the other cheek. Not smack them back.

Abby September 17, 2020 at 10:41 am

Turn the other cheek? Let the bully stomp on you some more? I have been bullied for 20 years with a lady whose claim is to be filled with the “Holy
Spirit.” There is no stopping her, she will NOT stop following me around, telling untruths about me, calling me fat mommy, pig, etc. THe people from another church thinks she is sliced bread. AND REAL! My former pastor would not listen to me. She has done so much damage to me and KEEPS DOING IT is the deal.

Jack Wellman September 17, 2020 at 11:27 am

Hello Abby. There are many false converts (read Matt 7:21-23) so what do you do about this bully? Pray for her. Ask God to save her and if she is converted,she will be a new creation in Christ (2 Cor 5:17-21). Jesus tells us to “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you” (Luke 6:27-28). That’s what Jesus tells us to do and what we must do. Consider that God loved us while we were STILL ungodly, wicked enenemies of God (Rom 5:6-10). God did not give us what we deserved (wrath) but what we needed (mercy), so do likewise as these are what the children of God do.

Jack Wellman February 22, 2017 at 9:34 am

Hello Mrs. Branham. Thank you for your comment and request for prayer. We will most certainly pray over this, but if your son’s repented and trusted in Christ, he should realize that Jesus said that the path to eternal life is hard, narrow, and difficult, and most every Christian I know is going thru similar circumstances as persecution grows. I can’t tell you how to pray for him, so just pour out your heart to Him like you did here. He listens to every child of his who has repented and trusted in Christ, including you and your son.

Maria Jensen February 28, 2017 at 8:21 am

Hi I am requesting prayer because I am in a difficult church situation. I am forced to attend a prayer meeting. The problem is that everyone else is asked to pray on a small topic and I am deliberately left out. I was only asked to pray on two occassions which was in front of other people to pray for the fear of the Lord and I felt like I was singled out. The second occassion I was told specifically what to pray for in the prayer church doctrine whereas others are not given the specifications. I have not spoken out as yet.

Jack Wellman February 28, 2017 at 9:34 am

Hello Mrs. Jensen. These things are troubling and as a pastor, I am saddened that someone is not being held accountable for being fair. Have you talked to the pastor about this? I would. There should be no partiality among people as there is no partiality with God. Praying about this…

Luiza Menezes-Fernandes March 10, 2017 at 4:40 am

There is nothing sinful about defending yourself. Didn’t you read about what Paul said about the Alexander the coppersmith? Have you not read where Jesus said to sell you stuff to go buy a sword? Because Christians have been “turning the other cheek”, we are now stuck with no prayer in school, etc. and Christian persecution at all levels. When someone is lying about you at work and trying to make you lose your job, you must pray AND defend yourself, or you will be out of a job.

melissa April 30, 2017 at 10:34 am

p.s. I am not talking about physically attacking someone or even verbally attacking someone. I am talking about speaking up and exposing these kinds of people. The more they get away with the more evil they will do.

EA July 28, 2017 at 7:31 pm

I’m a hard working employee and I’ve been prayerfully asking God to open another door for me. My employer allows others to disrespect me and says nothing and I’m tired of it. I’ve missed an opportunity to interview for a great job opportunity due to an appointment.

Matthew August 14, 2017 at 4:00 pm

Great article. I really needed this today.

Lynsey September 24, 2017 at 12:40 pm

This was exactly what I needed to read. I am dealing with multiple bullies in my life and don’t always know how to deal with it. I feel more equipped now. Thanks

Paige weedn September 29, 2017 at 5:38 am

Please help me pray for the strength of kindness over the power of seeking revenge. I am a senior in High School this year and I have 2 people who attempt to bully me everyday with their nonsense. It’s like a game they play to make themselves laugh and just try to break me down but I keep strength and ignore it. This has been happening to me for a whole year now and I’m starting to break so please help pray for me and to forgive my eneimies at school.

Nel October 13, 2017 at 12:57 pm

Thank for this timely article, my son gets slapped in school and scratched because he is a quiet boy who doesn’t say much, my unbelieving husband calls me crazy for being bothered by this, whereas I don’t sleep very much about this. I have told the teacher before but nothing is being done about it. I feel like leaving my marriage because am alone in this. Please pray for me.

Maggie December 30, 2017 at 1:41 am

I am going through hard time at work right now. I nurse same level as me has been bullying me for a long time.going behind my back influencing junior to lie about me. Even herself. She created lies and telling the manger wrong information. Please pray for me I am falling apart.. Please pray for her too because the devil is using her to torment me

Margret April 4, 2018 at 5:54 am

Please help me and pray for my husband. Throughout our marriage I have felt that his “advice” is actually bullying because after giving me his advice he would tell me that “it is what he expects me to do and full stop”.

If I try to explain myself I get shut down straight away. I am not aloud to do things the way I like to do he how I shop for the family, how I dress, drive, cook or anything that I have done my whole life before meeting my husband. I’m constantly told I do things wrong and that I am always causing him trouble with my big mouth. I have been praying for restoration of my marriage for over a year now but I find myself at a point where I have had enough and I don’t think I want this marriage anymore. I don’t know what to do anymore.

Jack Wellman April 4, 2018 at 11:32 am

Praying now for you and your marriage Margret. I know that only God can change the human heart (Prov 21:1), so that is my prayer for your husband.

John April 16, 2018 at 9:25 am

I do believe in God…I believe that’s nothing too hard for him. But I am bullied for six years straight. I am beaten again and again, I lost my dignity and hope in life, I lost my dreams and became a pessimistic person. I believe in God and his power, but at times like those, He never was there helping me out even as I wept and cried every single time.

Jack Wellman April 16, 2018 at 11:55 am

Hello John. That was pretty much me in my youth too. I am so sorry this is so painful for you. Let me say this about suffering. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you” (Matt 5:10-12) and Peter wrote,”12Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. 16However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. 17For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God” (1 Pet 4:12-17). My prayers are for you John.

Sean Brunson July 27, 2019 at 10:15 am

Hi my name is Sean. I am a Christian that lives in a group facility yet undergoes bullying by one of the residents. I have been bullied most of my life it seems at every stage of my life. Where I live this one person ridicules my weight, my hygiene, and my work ethic. I am sick and tired of being picked on. Romans 12:17 says RETURN EVIL FOR EVIL TO NO ONE. That is difficult to to as I want to lash out at this person. Pray that I am able to endure this bullying.

Jack Wellman July 27, 2019 at 2:07 pm

Hello Sean. I will pray for you sir that you can endure the bullying. All we can do is live as Christ commands (John 13:34-35; Rom 12:15-21).
