I wrote a post 4 years ago, about ‘how can narcissists/sociopaths/psychopaths be Christians? This was following being abused by a narcissist pastor and his equally narcissist wife.
The post I wrote, gained a lot of attention, with some commenters saying yes they can, because Jesus or God will ‘make them’ Christians. But, God doesn’t ‘make’ us do anything. He gave us free will. We have to want to surrender to God. We have to want to change our behaviour, our attitudes etc.
Following a post about spiritual abuse, Shannon commented – with exactly the same thinking I have. And as so few people think they way I do…. it is so good to see my understanding mirrored by another Christian, who is also a mental health professional.
I am so thankful to have connected with Shannon Thomas. Much of her thinking, is the same as mine and has that depth of insight I crave from other people.
Thank you God, for putting someone in my life, who ‘gets me’.
