When God was a victim: What a child abuse survivor taught me about Good Friday – Rhymes with Religion

The Real Truth for Good Friday.

Thank you Jesus that you didn’t turn your back on those who were abused.  You understood.  You grieved with us. You bore our pain and sorrows and died so that we could truly live…

Surely, she told me, this was a God who could understand her prayers, a God who, in the words of Isaiah, was “despised and rejected of men” and has “borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows” (Isaiah 53:3-4).
