When God Goes No Contact
This part resonated with me: "In my mind the unforgiveness I was harboring towards my abusers (remember I was angry with them) was a more serious issue with God than the actual abuse perpetrated on me." The world as we know defends the abusers well above any of their victims. The Christian world will give many false messages to ACONs, including telling us "our abusers didn't know any better." One thing I used to hear for years which makes me vomit now, is that they were "trying their best" and "went along with what they knew". All of us ACONs hear that don't we?
Smakintosh is correct that many of us wondered if only we were more charitable and nice maybe we wouldn't have been abused. I thought I was the problem for years as I wrote in my latest forgiveness article. Smakintosh is right these things were not based on anything scriptural. He is right about the modern churches being infected by the teachings of other religions. It's almost like we are to receive good karma from narcs by being "nice" to them. Well it doesn't work that way does it? Most churches fail to teach the truth about evil but God's Word is here for us to warn us about the wicked. God departs from the wicked in the same way we are commanded to depart from them too.
