Flee From All Evil
I had an affair 3 years ago of which I regret and have received forgiveness. The guy called me at work to "see how I am doing". Said he would like to call sometime. I think I should tell him not to call. How do I handle this as a Christian?

Pray and the Lord will remove him.

You say you regret being involved with this guy three years ago. I don't understand why you'd even consider seeing him again unless you hope to witness to him in some way. "Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character" (1 Corinthians 15:33). Be very careful! It may be that praying for him would accomplish more good than seeing him again.

you already said it,..."I think I should tell him not to call."

Just to echo the other anon, RUN LIKE THE WIND!!!!!!! Dont even play nice, the longer you allow him to call the more destructive it can become. The enemy just needs a small gap & then b4 you know it you right back to where you were!

Do not speak with him. Plain and simple

First I hope that the forgiveness you received included the person you offended, so there is no chance for him to just find out now.
Second, I hope you are over this fellow and you really dont want to see him again.
Get an unlisted phone no.
Tell him in writing or per pay phone that you made a serious mistake last time and you have no intention to repeat it and if necessary you will use the law to help you.

Begin to witness to him and tell him about Christ. Do not be alone with this fellow. If he MUST see you and you really want to see him then do it in Church around people.
Don't take any confession of Christ that he makes as a sign that you can get back together. Make him prove himself.
It would probably be best to forget him but I don't think you want to. Am I right?

Psalms 143:8-11, "Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee. Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me. Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. Quicken me, O LORD, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble."

Dear Shelley, Tell this guy to take a hike unless you want lots of trouble. Tell him nicely but tell him to leave you alone. If he persists, keep telling him the same thing. Believe me, if you pursue this, it will lead to heartache.

Shelley, Tell him flately it's over for good. Don't fall into this trap! He is just testing the waters. I know, I used to be one of these guys. Run Shelley!!!

I definetly think you should tell him in a good way that would not be a good idea to call back especially if he still married. Satan sets us up all kind of traps and he is very patient in trying to deceive us that is why it is said do not flirt with the enemy. Do not compromise what you know is right just to leave a good impression on him. Flee from temptation.
