So for example a child who was abused by his father who used a belt to beat him, will forever equate his father and that belt with abuse. When a particular church or organization abuse a person and they use the Bible to perform the abuse, you can deduce what will happen.
The one thing that a person needs to heal from an abusive situation, the Bible, is the very thing that person can’t turn to because it was the object of the abuse.
Only God has the power to judge a person’s heart and save him/her.
Be careful to not give the IFB or any religious organization for that matter, the praise and glory that only belongs to God.
While I can’t say that every IFB church is run in a spiritually abusive manner since that would be an impossible claim to knowledge, I can easily infer, based on my experience with multiple IFB churches and based on others who I’ve talk to or shared their stories on this site, that most are.
Afterall, God can use a cult to bring people to him.Much of what you will read here comes directly from my personal experience.Much of the information contained within this site can be generalized to other churches, but not all of it.Keep in mind that even though people may make known the good things that are being done in their church or religious group does mean that there aren’t abusive things happening and does not give them the right to dismiss or excuse that abuse.It is wrong and dangerous to ignore/dismiss abuse on the grounds that good is also happening.
