Rape is a terrible violation of a person's body, security and peace of mind, and has been known to scar some people for life. While our most likely reference to rape is sexual assault, men and women who put their trust in churches and pastors, only to be spiritually violated, coerced and manipulated, are often just as scarred as those who have suffered the physical counterpart. They are deeply wounded, and often find it difficult to place their trust in another man or woman of the cloth. Some stay away from church completely; others are so guarded that they are indifferent or even hostile to the word of God, especially if it comes from a preacher. The church is supposed to be a safe place, where people can find solace, peace, joy, comfort and fellowship. In her landmark new book, I've Been Raped by the Church, A Recovery Guide for the Wounded, Co-Pastor and Evangelist Vicky Lynch shares a shocking truth-not all churches are safe places, even for believers. Everyday people are wounded by pastors who are supposed to be lovingly shepherding their flocks, but instead are abusing and killing them. Some are so good at it that their people wonder if they are delusional or if the church is out-of-order. How can these things be? Well, even Old Testament Scripture addresses these issues. This problem is not a new one, but it has always broken the heart of God, who wants pastors to reflect His unconditional love and help His people find their destinies. Vicky shares insights that will equip you to identify spiritual abuse and offers options on dealing with it. If you've been victimized by spiritual abuse, or you know someone who has, she offers hope and healing for you and others you know who struggle.
