Hello Ms. Kern,
This morning a friend of mine emailed me your
website, and reluctantly I read it. I know who you are, have read numerous
posts regarding yourself over the years, and had felt confident that you were on
some sort of weird attack party with Mr. Trimm.
I am very sorry, and ask your forgiveness, because I have verbally
said that to my friends who followed after Mr. Trimm. I think otherwise
I live in England, in the Northeast, but am originally from
California where I attended a very small Messianic Congregation. I've
enjoyed his writings, and have to admit, justified my anger at the Church and
gave me an outlet to live according to what I was experiencing in my
heart. If this makes sense.
To make a very long story short, I met a couple over here who
are very much into Trimm's way of life. I say Trimm's way of life, because
it has gone so far extreme that I had to walk away from the friendship (in this
past year)..and really the only physical fellowship I had. All I can tell
you, is that from personal experience, his influence on people's lives is
destructive. The wife of this family is slowly being alienated away from
her "christian" parents and family, by her husband in very subtle means.
You know, they cannot visit because the wife's father gives her dog bones to
eat. (even the dog is vegetarian). They cannot attend family
gatherings without making a complete fuss because pork was probably served in a
dish on another occasion from it. And the very worst, is that their view is now
that "Jesus" is the anti-Messiah, and have made it their quest to inform their
previous Christian brothers. Instead of the commandments of Yahweh being
life-giving, they become death.
My friends and I were big fans of Avi Ben Mordechai (whom was
beloved of myself because of our familiar backgrounds with Calvary Chapels) and
listened to him on Paltalk. I find it interesting that these teachers are
not happy just teaching Scripture. They seem always on the prowl for
attainment of more Spirituality. Like a weird, perverted fix or
something. The LAST time I listened to Avi, (after increasing worry over
his affiliation and apparent love for Karaitism)...he dogmatically stated who
his "brothers" are. He rather vehemently said, "those who follow
Torah..period". I kept waiting for him to say..."and my brothers who are
not quite there yet, but loving and following the inner Torah in Churches", but
he excluded them. Even Mr. Mordechai is slowly moving to an
All of this has forced me to seriously look at my faith again, and
I have returned to my first love. (and much repentance) Yes, I
believe and try to follow the commandments that I am able to. I love my
Father and Messiah with my whole heart, mind, and being.
I don't like having to admit I've been deceived.
You know Kathryn, I admire you. I've read things about
yourself that are less than wonderful, and yet you've persevered in bringing the
truth to light. Thank you.
I've forwarded your site to my friends, and pray they read
Just a side note, a group of us ordered a very expensive tape set
from Mr. Trimm. And it took ages to get it. The gal who actually
ordered it has since left the faith and her Christian husband to convert to
liberal Judaism. This didn't help I tell ya. Not only would Mr.
Trimm not respond to her many emails asking about the tapes. She filed a case
with the Texas DA. I took over the matter because I defended Mr. Trimm's
integrity. It took me a couple of tries to finally get a hold of him
myself. I believe the only reason he ever responded was because I put
something like possible lawsuit against you if you don't respond in the subject
heading. (that got his attention!) Supposedly, the first set was
lost in the mail. So his wife Kitty mailed out another one. Which
didn't come either. Finally, after more emails, it finally came. We
ordered them in June, they came in October I believe. Oh, and we did ask
for a refund...but you know how that went over.
The sad thing is, I have another friend here in England who's
ordered the new HRV, and it's a disgrace what Mr. Trimm is bringing to the house
of faith in the unbelieving community. Two years, she's been waiting...and
it's just about here! Oh, and she also asked for a refund, and you know
how that went over too.
In Messiah's love,
NAME WITHHELD FOR PROTECTION
P.S...I divorced a husband addicted to pornography after enduring
the marriage for 18 years. These men, (mine professed to be a Christian)
are extremely deceptive because they mask their perversion and deviation by
being so "holy" and "good". My ex husband has admitted this. If
anyone doubts how insideous this sin is, because it isn't "physcial adultery" is
sadly without a clue. Let me tell you, they never overcome this unless
their lives are exposed...by them. These men are always playing
the "victim", and enjoy the attention in a sick way they receive even when
they're attacked. The sexual abuse they force upon their wife,
because of the embarrassing nature to the wife and won't speak out, is
horrible. I feel for his wife(ves). I think this is the worst part
of what I read. For many reasons...
