I never really felt that what they were telling me was right. But who am I? They quoted their verses and told me what they meant. I really did want to follow and obey Christ. I am not a rebel. So I did what they told me was God’s will.
How many times have you either said something like this yourself, or you have heard a Christian who was a victim of abuse say it? For myself, I can not only attest to thinking this at times in the past, but I can also say that I have heard scores of abuse survivors say that this is how they thought as well. At some point we begin to wake up and realize that what these “experts” were telling us was just plain contrary to the character of God as He has revealed Himself to us.
