On October 13 Lori claims she is no longer going to look at the reviews and would rather dwell on the lovely:
That didn’t last. On October 15 she replied to multiple Amazon reviews:
Here is one for example.
Lori should take a cue from a chapter in her book and “Let it Go”. Let it go and leave it up to God whether people buy the book or not. Let God lead and stop being such a control freak. She puts on the good godly act at her blog, turns on all the right optics by saying stuff like “dwell on the lovely”. However, its obvious that godly act is hard to follow through and keep up. At her core she still seems to have a deep need to control.
She also needs to brush up on her post here about how arguing and debating with others isn’t feminine.
This Amazon comment in the thread linked above takes the cake for today:
“If you are truly a Christian woman, you would have come privately to me as the Word tells us to do and talked to me about this instead of using the platform of Amazon to slander me and accuse me of things that I said that are false and/or out of context.”
I always love this type of response. “If you were a real Christian…..” She is being a role model to how other women should respond in these situations, so I take it now that it is OK and godly to go around accusing people of not being a real Christian when they simply don’t agree with them or when all of her methods don’t work for everyone. Godly women are allowed to speak publicly, say harmful things, gossip about others in public, but when you have a grievance with them that has to be done behind closed doors. The public is never to see anything other than her perfect, godly image. She seems to be having a real problem adjusting to what life is like outside of her sheltered home and blog–in the real world. This is what happens when you decide to be an author and enter the sphere of men and business. Its not for delicate snowflakes.
Let’s refer back to April’s book
. She seems to be handling it well and not getting much criticism at all. She writes on the very same topics that Lori writes on but she doesn’t get the “hate”. Let’s think about this –If all her negative reviews are because those reviewers “hate the Lord and His way”, then why do the same reviewers not go after April book (or any other woman with the same message)? Maybe its not the message, Lori, maybe its you. Plus, why does she care so much about what people think of her? Doesn’t it only matter what God thinks of you?
