This is yet another issue I see within churches…
Especially the conservative, right wing child abusing ones (physical abuse/spanking etc), ‘women must submit and obey their husbands (which is interpreted wrongly/abusively) and the ones that preach crap like ‘you need to teach your children to fully submit, not question, first time obedience etc – because that teaches them to ‘submit to God’.
What a pile of abusive crap. This is just narcissistic/sociopathic behaviours through and through. And absolutely spiritual abuse by saying it is what God wants.
And I’ve seen all this in action at a very unhealthy, ‘abuser protecting’ church. So I have experience of seeing it first hand and I ‘knew’ in my soul this was wrong. Thank you Jesus ❤
I can also see how this leads to children and women being abused further. It is such an unhealthy and dangerous issue to insist and impose on anyone.
No wonder there is so much child abuse and child sexual abuse within churches.
Will be thinking about this some more and how this feeds into all the abuse going on in churches.
