cafe stress

last night at cafe chance (the christian cafe for drug addicts) there was a problem in the staff. i dont want to go into details, but just say to please pray. i felt rather attcked by the things another volunteer said to me, and this was the third occasion. (over the weekend he had declared one of the people i counsel as "the next to die"- that hurts!) after he was asked to leave the topic for another, more private time (there was already a guest in the cafe) he kept going, and then durring prayer time even brought his points across as a prayer! i decided it was better to leave before i said or did something inappropriate, since guests were starting to arrive. but i dont want this to be a stress point causeing me (or him) not to be able to work there anymore.

I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.

Romans 16:17-18

I don't wish to judge this person as one of these people who cause divisions, but it certainly sounds like he is working in that direction. Perhaps you should point out to him that being an arsch to you in public like this is contrary to how we should be acting. He should be supportive of you in your efforts, and loose his critical tongue. If this verse is not enough, you might also read Jude 1.
