I am so sick of living in society and seeing Christianity, perpetuate this crap, that the victims of abuse have to act better and behave better after being abused, far more than the abusers.
There is so much pressure put on victims, to get over the abuse, move on, stop dwelling, forgive quicker blah blah blah……
And you’re deemed to be a failure, a crap Christian if you don’t.
And then the abusers aren’t made to deal with the consequences of the harm they caused at all and do-gooders feel sorry for them, and want society to believe they are remorseful, and that they won’t do it again, and let them off basically with little or no consequences, and little or no justice.
Someone here, wrote a comment that a church had a picture of a known sex offender – who had been abusing kids within a youth group, on their ‘wall of fame’ and when questioned whether this photo was appropriate, was told ‘well if he repented….’.
It is a sick world we live in, where abusers are said to have repented with barely a ‘sorry’ or even a complete denial and victims of abuse are re-traumatised by being told they are not getting over it quick enough, not forgiving enough, not showing grace.
What a pile of crap.
Cheap grace is such a lovely concept for so many Christians. I’ve seen it happen.
An abuser, pathological, narcissistic liar, angrily stated a false apology, whilst also showing rage and calling the victim demonic, and he ‘gets away with it’. No-one cares that he hurt the victim badly. He said sorry didn’t he…..
Pathetic. That’s not repentance.
And Christianity without true, full repentance is not of God. It’s fake, weak, bullshit that continues to harm people.
And most people, really do not give a shit.
Who cares about the victims……
Just tell them to forgive and get over it or they are a bad person.
And mollycoddle the abuser, because the abuser is the one who needs all the help and support of course….
