Leah and Donna Mate have with the courts help changed Melanies surname to Matthews. It's Melanie Matthews she's not a Selakovic anymore. Marsden keep these evil people in there church congregation after committing sins unto death. John Petrak knows but doesn't care shame on him he's responsible for not doing anything about this.

Are you referring to a Bible analogy to a child surname change due to a husband and wife separation/divorce? Not trying to judge, but that is inappropriate on so many levels. It goes to show you when people want to be hurtful all they have to do is find a Bible passage or a Bible parable to justify and make things right.

Outside perspective (non-christian), if Leah and her mother did it out of spite, she is mean. And if Leah and her mother were Christians, they wouldn't be behaving in a way that is full of hate, revenge, and hypocrisy.
I pray and hope that when this little girl grows up, she gets therapy to help her, so she doesn't end up having a personality disorder.

That comment above doesn't make sense. Are you telling people that they should be fearful of her?
I think anyone who would go to the lengths she took to get back at her husband/ex-husband is a hateful and vengeful act.
There are thousands of people that go through a divorce and never change their children's last names. Most people want to do what is best for the child - but in this case, it looks like this family and mother of the child wants people to support her or otherwise they will be threatened with a lawsuit? You can't control people and their reactions to your behavior. It's freedom of speech.

yes, and understood.
and
your comment is valid, and I agree.

but, you do not know the amount of corruption that is in the australian courts, the australian lawyers, australian barristers, the australian judges, the australian police force, the australian immigration and customs...etc

its bad!!!!

people with a lot of money, end up winning the lawsuit, regardless if they were in fault.

people without a lot of money, end up losing the lawsuit, regardless if they were innocent.

corruption means:

dishonest or illegal behaviour involving a person in a position of power, for example, accepting money for doing something illegal or immoral.

she even ended up winning the judge to stop the husband attend the property grounds of a property she doesn't even own, nor has any ownership part of.

beat that level of corruption????

and more still, Marsden church accepted this judges' rule.

you cant go too much further beyond this.

Time will go on, and this young little girl will grow up and be able to make her own choices. And as for this mom and her mother, they will be forever known for their acts of hate and revenge. This little girls mom and grandmother can go to all the courts and hire all the attorney's they like, but they cannot control the minds and views of people and how they are perceived. Your behavior and what you do defines who you are.

Fathers provoke not your children to anger.what has this child's father done to this child and her mother that the courts had to put a restraining order on him so that the child would not suffer such attacks?
We need to back off as we do not know the many details that the courts and doctors have heard. So we need to be very careful not to mix in other people's matters but be considerate and have the child's well being and health as most important that she might get healing from the trauma she might have experienced.

From what I understood from the previous post was that the husband of the child wanted out of the engagement but was told by the elder that he had to go through with the wedding. I don't know about you, but to force someone to stay committed to following through with a wedding after he felt that he should not get married is an act of abuse.

Now that his wife/ex-wife has separated/divorced him and taken the only thing that matters most to him (his child) are the elder(s), minister(s), or church members trying to help him.

You can mention the courts, the judge's decisions and the restraining order or you like, but the fact is that his ex-wife, ex-mother-in-law and ex-in-laws care absolutely nothing about him and are on a vengeful act to continue to hurt him. To change the surname of his child was a hurtful and unnecessary act. What purpose did it serve?

From an outside perspective, this bother is being abused, and I don't see anyone trying to help him.

Also, I have heard that the elder of Australia punished a dad of a daughter because she didn't stay committed to a marriage. What this tells me is that the church leaders are biased and they will only act to support their loved ones and care very little about anyone else.

I don't believe that the mother of this child is working in the best interest of the child. I think she is on a vengeful act to do nothing else but hurt this man.

So sad!

I have heard of and know 'healthy' women who separate from their husbands because on infidelity, but they still want their children to be in their dad's lives and don't disrespect their ex-husbands in front of their children.

I find this situation sad because this young little girl will never grow up to know her dad. The mother is feeding her all these negative comments about how horrible her dad is and is brainwashing this little girl.

I cannot imagine how hard it would be to be this little girl. My heart goes out to her. To be taken away from your dad, dragged into a court battle, only be presented with hateful validation on who your dad is and now to have your name changed. Would I be confused?

Now, do you think this little girl will grow up trusting men?

To the person who wrote baloney"
This couple was a responsibility or members of Altona church served by elders cucanik and Arnold bowmaun.
All their effort was in vain as they would not listen
to their counsel..elders are not policeman or judges.
If they would impose church discipline they would be called dictators or spiritual abusers, so then who's to be blamed? And to thee statement that thee elder forced the brother to marry her is absolute incorrect, for the elders were not involved at the time of this marriage. It was performed by an elder assistant in Melbourne.

Who punished a dad in Sydney church because his daughter wasn’t committed to her marriage? Was it not an elder from Brisbane? You don’t need to be in the proximity of the couple to threaten or punish someone. (Sydney vs. Brisbane)

As for not listening to counsel - what do you expect this brother to do? He is being abused. This is abuse!

To change a child’s last name is provoking a man. It’s hurtful and unchristian like behavior.

if discipline was imposed at the right time, with the correct level, she would not have had strength to commit further sin.

keeping the boundaries of the faith, and applying discipline with measure, to those who erred from the faith is biblical, not an act of dictatorship or abuse.

Accusations of 2 sisters committing the sin unto death you allowed and printed without proof. how come you allow slander on those 2 sisters. And the other comments were truthful yet you took them off this site.

if there is still a lawsuit on either spouse, their names should not be on the website.

this could be a reason why the comment may have needed to be removed.

someone has power and money to manipulate the lawyers and the court judges, forgetting what the final Judge is going to bring to judgement.

Gods fear is not present with these types of people, sad enough to say.

They do not practise godliness nor holiness.

They practise inch thick make up, comes to church with business dress code and sports shoes, and dresses the daughter with a mini skirt during the winter months.

what could be going through her head with these types of actions.

lets hope this website, still attempts to penetrate a potential step away from foolish acts, and people come to their senses....

"Jilted", you are right, the comment you mentioned has been removed. This is because this website has a moderator, and the moderator's role is to maintain the content of the website within acceptable boundaries. This whole topic is questionable, to start with, but I decided to let it continue based on some ongoing and unresolved issues and people's evident desire to keep discussing it. The title of this website is "Spiritual and Mental Abuse in Apostolic Christian Church Nazarene in Australia". Personal feuds and quarrels are not welcome here. Those need to be discussed elsewhere.

To the moderator,
Isn't this whole topic of a personal dispute between a husband and wife matter and court cases? The child-safe being at question here? Yet you allow accusations of sins unto death and lies against so many innocent individuals. Which part in that topic you didn't you like? Is it the part that other people change their names or is it the part where the father is alleged to have taken the little girl to see her little brother by another woman? That would make him an adulterer, wouldn't it? I'd like you to put the other comment back in.

When adults change names it's their free will,but if someone does it to a little child who has no say and without father's consent,it's wrong.

First off what does the child's last name have to do with her safety? Secondly, anyone who claims that changing a child's name isn't wrong and hurtful is most likely related to Leah and Donna.

And if you think that I'm talking 'balcony' ask five men that go to church and then ask five men that don't go to church how they would feel if their ex-spouse change their child's name.

I also asked a man that question because I'm trying to understand if I'm the only one that thinks that's this behavior is hurtful. This man said, 'of course it would hurt' and then said, 'I would never marry someone like that.' After I told him these women go to church, he asked me why I associate myself with these types of people.

I think this whole situation is beyond sad and will only get worse. I don't see how these women will ever turn around and make things right for the little girl and her dad.

You are wrong, I am not the relative they have in Chicago. If you ask five women what would they do if their husband already has fathered another child with another woman, would they still keep the husband's surname? Was it not the case that the father started all these court cases to take the child away from the mother? But it backfired on him.

Why delete this thread when the child has no idea about this website. The child has no access to a mobile or any electronic device because the mother and grandmother are holding her captive so she has no contact with the father. This child is abused daily by them so please your not helping here. The courts of this country allows child abuse.

The lies that you uttered and the way you communicate is unintelligent and personal. Why would you lie about his man?

Secondly, There are movie stars and people that don't go to church that have been cheated on and have had their ex-spouses father other children with other women, and they don't change their children's last name.

Thirdly, has Leah been evaluated for the deep seeded hatred she keeps spewing towards the baby's father? And as for you, why is this personal?

love brings unity if one fails.
(love towards the person not on the sin)

hatred breaks unity if one fails.

stop the hatred (towards the person), and work on love (towards the person not on the committed sin).

if any one fails, you dont have to continue in that, get up, stand up, apologise, reverse the hatred, reverse having revenge, reverse having grudges...etc

we shall ALL appear before the judgement seat of Christ.....

do we NOT understand this???

return and repent brings healing.

return, repent, apologise and confess DOES bring healing.

do we not all want to be accepted on the last day into Gods kingdom?

are we working at this?

are you, dear mother, working your salvation with fear and trembling??

if you are, you cannot take someone to court.

do you like someone taking you to court?

I hate to state the obvious, but the dad of the child isn't going to get anywhere in his attempts to get help from the church. You see he is not PP Sr. relative.

I heard, and anyone in Australia can correct me if I'm wrong that Sonya's dad (Laza K.) was put under discipline because his daughter would not go back to her husband. When he asked how long will be under discipline, PP Sr. said not until Sonya returns to her husband.

What makes Leah any different than Sonya? The only difference is Leah is PP Sr. niece, and Sonya was married to PP's nephew.

Now, what does this tell you? If you are related to an elder, you can do whatever you like, and you will always come out on top.

And Donna you a fortunate to be married to PP Sr. late wife's brother.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN! His mouth is full of Biblical verses but his heart is filled with hatred, jealousy, treachery and lust for power. This FALSE CHRISTIAN is the root of almost all evil in ACCN in Australia and he will even take you to court, if he can't get his way.
Janko is pretty much like Paul, dishonest and unloving, just less intelligent. Janko is now building his humongous "warehouse" in Tarneit, destined to remain void of both faith and members. This UNREPENTED SINNER is still dreaming about becoming an elder!
Hard-hearted and egoistic, this long-time "elder" has caused immense grief, division and misery amongst the Nazarenes in Australia. Some even call him a sadist... not that Andrew really cares about anyone's opinion, though. Currently residing in a nursing home in Perth.
Earned his nickname by constantly repeating "Ljubazni" (Dear Ones) while preaching. This recently appointed "elder assistant" is ambitious, but at the same time not clever enough to realize he will always be just Paul's and Janko's messenger boy.
Philip is Paul Pentsa's son-in-law and definitely his best student. Proud, stubborn, arrogant - a classic bigot. Due to his off-putting personality and some weird beliefs, he's not on very good terms with Janko Tomek and other Slovaks in Tarneit.
Here is your future Elder, whether you like the idea or not. Nicky is "a very nice guy". No gift for preaching or leadership skills, but being Paul Pentsa's son, he's actually got everything he needs. Sooner or later his Dad will find the way to install him as his successor.
Janko Tomek's loyal admirer and bodyguard - sleazy, hypocritical, dishonest and ignorant. His interpretation of the Scriptures can make you laugh as well as his awkward sermons in broken English.
