Forgiveness of Unrepentant Abuse is Enabling

Forgiveness of unrepentant abuse is enabling.

Reconciliation with an unrepentant abuser is placing ones self in harms way.

Forcing someone to forgive an unrepentant abuser is spiritual and emotional abuse.

Forcing someone to overlook abuse and go back to a situation of danger makes one complicit in the abuse. It may also be punishable by law.

It is time that we begin talking about domestic abuse in the church. It is time that there was more comprehensive training on the issues of abuse, narcissistic abuse, cluster-b personality disorders, sexual abuse, pedophilia, and domestic abuse within the church.

It is time that we started caring about about protecting victims of abuse more than we care about protecting the reputations of the abusers, and their organizations.
