A ‘Church’ that Hands Victims Over to the Abuser – A Cry For Justice blog

This story came to my mind today as I was thinking about how local churches so often essentially hand over an abuse victim to her abuser – Now they told David, “Behold, the Philistines are fighting against Keilah and are robbing the threshing floors.” Therefore David inquired of the LORD, “Shall I go and attack […]

John MacArthur’s Destructive Teachings – “No Divorce for Abuse” by Jeff Crippen/A Cry for Justice blog
