This book has been written for the "Unchurched", "Wounded", "Anointed" Christian. It is for those who are considered "Spiritual Bastards" simply because they have chosen to "Obey God rather than man." A Bastard's Refuge, has been written for the "Fatherless", letting them know that they are not alone and that they too have a "Heavenly Father" who loves them even if their birth father has disappeared from the scene. This book speaks volumes to the left out, the outcast, and to those who find themselves wondering around in "Rejectsville" - it is for those who don't seem to "fit."
Though it comes in like a lion, and hits the wolves real hard, it is a blanket and an answer to prayer for the many souls who have been wounded by clergy, co-workers and life in general. It is for the Christian, the Atheist and even for those who are somewhere in the middle. "ABR II" may save somebody's life. Your chains will fall to the ground as you read this "Bondage Breaker."
A Bastard's Refuge is for those who wish to be free indeed...

A Bastard’s Refuge II
Grab hold to those nerve pills, because you’re going to need them…
A Bastard's Refuge II catapults you to a place where the fearful dare not tread; taking you on a riveting journey as it exposes “Pulpit Venom.” What is a person to do when he or she finds him or herself under the leadership of a "Ravenous Wolf” rather than a “Loving Shepherd? Unlike some that merely dance around the issues; this book goes all the way as it blows the wolves right out of the water. Whew!!!
In authentic “Firebrand Style”, Prophetess J. Godley-Ramos puts it down way hard - so get ready. You will either say “AMEN!” or "OUCH!" The “Bootleg Shepherds”, the “Wolf Clerics” the “Prophet Wannabe” and sadly to say, even the poor "Slumbering Sheep” are all in for a rude awakening. “ABR II” is a crooked pastor's worse nightmare while it is the answer to prayer for the many souls that have been wounded by them. For far too long the “Hirelings” have been in the forefront fleecing the sheep.
Instead of pointing people to God, “Impostors” often view themselves as God. Many literally believe that the people of the congregations belong to them; and because so many in the flock have fallen asleep, or are lacking in “Proper Biblical Interpretation”, or because they do not have enough backbone to stand up for themselves, or are afraid to do so, they continue to wonder around in a blinding stupor, and in spiritual buffoonery, as they are repeatedly pimped, molested and controlled, by the same leaders, who are supposed to be watching for their souls. “Bootleg Shepherds” give God’s “Good Pastor’s” a bad name. But no longer will they rape and spiritually assassinate the flock and go free.
The church may not be ready for this one, because things will never be the same again. This time, "Dagon shall fall down!”
A Bastard’s Refuge, has been written on behalf of the countless number of human beings, who have found themselves orphaned, rejected, or branded “illegitimate.” It is for those of you who may be wondering where you fit, in the service of The Lord or even in this world. It is for every reject, ugly duckling, bewildered, lost or confused soul.
I write for each of you who the world has seen fit to treat with disdain and/or little to no regard. I write this book for people everywhere, who for whatever reason, will never have the courage nor the opportunity to write it for themselves; it is for them, and also for myself, that I dare to tell the painful story.
A Bastard’s Refuge offers much love to the “underdog”, the “forgotten crew”, “the little people” and to the “sheep” who have lost their way. “ABR” is particularly sympathetic towards those who have been wounded in the “earthly household” of The Living God. To every “blurb”, every “human stain”, and every displaced member of “society” and “church”, this book is for you.
My heart goes out to all who have been tossed aside and thought of as unimportant, with their needs going constantly unmet. I write for each of you who have yearned for a father’s blessing or a dad’s loving embrace but instead, have received only pain. I dedicate this book to those of you who have been pushed aside, stepped on, shuffled to the back of line and in many cases, even left for dead – I love you, and it is for you that I write.
My heart is in agony for you who have been kicked out, given away and trampled upon. Without any concern as to the damage they were inflicting, your caretakers simply discarded you like a rotten piece of meat fit for the slop.
Have you ever felt as though you were merely “tolerated” and not at all accepted or loved? I offer encouragement, to each of you who desired only to fit in, but were never given the opportunity to even look in.
This work is dedicated to anyone, who has ever wrestled with self-hatred, with feelings of negativity regarding his or her identity and/or appearance or with tormenting feelings of insecurity.
I write for each of you who find yourselves engaged in an emotional thrashing, as you desperately attempt to revisit the beauty of your own tattered soul. You allowed yourself to become oblivious to your potential and to your own self-worth, as the barrage of negativity from others, seemed always to dim your sight.
In your local assemblies as the “wolf clerics” ruled from their lofty positions, they refused to even acknowledge your value. Never mind acknowledging your value, hell they refused to even see you, because they considered you to be beneath them.
Be it known brothers and sisters, none of these people are higher than God; neither should their opinions matter to you more than His. It matters not what “they” have told you or what “they” think of you. You need only to, “Look unto to the hills from whence cometh your help.” Please know that your true help really does come only from The Lord (Psalm 121:1-2).
This book was God’s precious gift to me, which I now share with you. It has been written with love, and comes directly from the heart of one rejected, wounded soul, to others of like kind. At the command of The Father, I have penned it especially for you.
It is a terrible thing to desire a father, a family, friends, pastoral approval or perhaps, even a reason for living, only to come up empty-handed. You hurt to the core, as you come to terms with the painful reality of knowing, that you have been ostracized, overlooked and criticized for much of your life.
I pour out myself, as I write from the soul, for people who feel as though, absolutely no one understands them and therefore, have no one in whom they can confide.
This work is for every little boy and for every little girl, who on a daily basis, is forced to eat lunch all alone in the school cafeteria. This they do, day after day, because nobody else wants them around.
I write for every social misfit and for every lonely child, who are left only with shadows and imaginary friends with whom to play. Their only companions are those they have conjured up in their hearts and in their minds.
This book is dedicated to and has been written for everyone whose only desire has been to receive genuine love, and acceptance, for who they are. It is for every person who has ever wished to fit in or be shown the same kindness that he or she has unselfishly lavished upon others.
For those of you who find yourselves in an emotional whirlwind, I need you to know, that The Father dedicates this book especially to you. He urged me not to give up, but instead, He insisted that I see this work to completion. The Father would often remind me, that there are many to rescue.
“THERE ARE SO MANY OF MY BABIES TO ROUND UP,” He’d say.
You beloved are His “babies.” You are His children, and He wants you to know, how very much He loves you.
