Ravaged Faith

When faith has been used as a weapon, its
possibility as a resource for healing is ravaged. That’s just one part of the damage that is caused when sexual abuse is committed by a trusted spiritual leader. Here is how I tried to explain it when a well-intentioned friend sent a long email saying that God would heal and restore me if only I would put my trust and faith in Him.

This is a powerful letter written by Christa Brown, the author of This Little Light and survivor of spiritual abuse.  Her words encouraged my heart greatly. If you are a victim of spiritual abuse, check out her page Stopbaptistpredators.org.
