Do you feel an Abuser can Truly be a Christian?

New Post on Le Chrysalis Christian Center

This is something I have been sitting on for months…not sure if I wanted to post it or if I should.  I’ve been praying about it and have read over it and feel that it’s something that really needs to be said.  This is just the beginning of this topic, yet it is a beginning!

Here I’m sharing what I’ve seen and what I’ve learned and noticed…abuse is not absent within the church!  Often times it’s one spouse that comes to church and the other does not, yet many times both do attend church.  This is a topic that needs to be talked about and addressed!  This is not something to be silent about!

Do you feel an Abuser can Truly be a Christian?

Let’s be real here, we have Christians that are abusers within our churches and within our communities. This is nothing new, yet it seems that it’s yet another topic that so many don’t want to talk about. We have abusive Fathers, Mothers, Husbands, and Wives wearing the “Mask of Christianity”. We have ministers that are abusing and even killing their wives. We have Pastors who abuse their wives and children; we have Priests that molest young boys…

This isn’t anything new! This is a societal issue; we have abusers in all facets of society! There are abusers who are doctors, lawyers, political officials, police officers, judges, clerks, waiters, waitresses, trash truck drivers…so why is it such a surprise we have them as Christians as well? 1 in 4 (this is what the common statistic states as of today, although I truly believe it’s more like 1 in 3) women are affected by abuse, and this doesn’t even touch the men that are abused (1 in 7) as well! How many people sit in your church every Sunday? How many do you see shopping at Walmart, in the mall, or on the roads daily? How many are abuse victims? More importantly, how many are abusers?

Colossians 3:19

19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
