Your posture can condone spiritual abuse
I have been speaking to a leader who has come out of the same abusive system I was in. I witnessed what they went through and it was terrible. I just did not know I was in line for the same treatment as I was in the same abusive system. This dear leader who is quite aware of the devastation this ministry and leader has caused, projects this image that all is well. I told her that I donot think the image she is projecting that all is so grand is healthy to others who are candidates for the same abuse. The leader who has caused such grief has not learned or else I would not be the victim I am today! They said nothing to others while this system; their covering ripped their church from them. They just isolated themselves and went away quietly. The people were scatttered everywhere and the church is no longer there. By saying nothing and pretending that all is well you set others up for the same abuse. I am not saying they should have spread rumors or gossip but certainly letting others know this is not right may have helped. Some of the members donot go to church today because of what happened there.
