I am only one person, I’m still in my own healing journey. Trying to cope with, recover from a severe trauma history.
I see so many abusive views held by too many church people. I’ve endured them and I know God wants this used to help others.
God needs His people who understand who He is, to help others.
But, I am not under any ego/illusion that I am going to ‘change the world’. I can only do what I can, and help a few people. My gift is writing, which isn’t amazing in any way, but it is honest, real, relatable, and many people clearly value it.
My experiences in life are mostly about ‘abuse’. So this is what I write about mostly and also I incorporate the abuse I know and have seen and have endured by church people.
It offends my soul, when God, Jesus’ Word is used to abuse people. It is an added layer of disgust for me and whether intentional, or not, it is evil occurring.
It is Satan’s delight to have God used for harm and abuse. And that bothers, offends and upsets me greatly and I do not apologise for feeling this way.
I don’t hate people who abuse, but I hate abuse. And I don’t believe it should ever be ignored, condoned, excused, encouraged, no matter who is involved. Whether it be a church member, a minister, a church denomination head, or the Pope.
If I see abuse occurring of any form, I won’t take the apathetic view, cheap grace, or any other form of avoiding dealing with it.
But, I am one person. I can’t take on the world and fix it. That’s Jesus’ job when He returns. And I know that.
So, I just do my little part, through my writing and accept that so many fail to be ‘Christians’ that it impossible to deal with them all.
And I know what I write makes a difference in the lives of the people who read it.
And that is enough.
