I am a born-again Bible-believing Christian. I’m in my sixties. I was brought up as a secular humanist and was born again in my mid-twenties (much to my astonishment).
I was sexually abused as a child – once. I’ve been sexually abused in adulthood too.
I know from personal experience that if a child is sexually abused one time, it does immense harm. It screwed me up for decades.
Being born again did not immediately fix all the damage done to my internal wiring. Nor did it immediately fix all the self-destructive habits I’d developed in my teens and twenties. I’ve come to terms with the fact that the damage done to my internal wiring will probably never be fully fixed in this mortal life. But thank God I am no longer practising any addictive behaviours.
Children are vulnerable. No fault of their own. It’s the nature of childhood. Children want love. They don’t want to be hurt. They want to be nurtured and protected. People of goodwill need to be vigilant to protect children from abusers. God says this about people who inflict hurt on children:
But whoever hurts one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung about his neck and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
I have a high view of Scripture. I’ve been in many kinds of protestant churches over the years but it’s a long time since I belonged to any denomination or church organisation.
I’ve been blogging about Christianity and domestic abuse since 2012 at cryingoutforjustice.blog.
I published my first book Not Under Bondage: Biblical Divorce for Abuse, Adultery and Desertion in 2008. I hope I can issue a revised edition of that book and publish another book before I die or before God wraps up this world like a scroll and brings in the New Heavens and New Earth (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1)
I’ve heard from countless victims of abuse, many of whom are professing Christians.
I have personally experienced these kinds of abuse:
- sexual abuse
- intimate partner abuse (emotional/ verbal/ spiritual/ physical)
- abuse by family of origin (I get on okay with all my family of origin so I don’t talk about this publicly out of respect for them)
- abuse by wolves in sheep’s and shepherd’s clothing in the church (spiritual abuse/ disbelief / neglect)
- abuse by demonic entities
I know survivors of Luciferian ritual abuse. I have not suffered Luciferian ritual abuse myself.
Since 2018 I’ve been helping expose the tactics and players in the deep state and supporting the victims using my @notunderbondage handle at Twitter.
