One Who Escaped July 12, 2013 8:55 am (Pacific time)

http://www.wickedshepherds.com/ChapterI.html As a Christian who came out of the apostate, organized, Institutional church system, I challenge anyone to refute the truths contained in the link I've posted. Anyone honestly seeking the truth of the matter, will find that ALL churches are cults, no exceptions. Does this mean that Christianity itself is false? No, not by any means, just that for the last 2,000 yrs., it has been so distorted by wicked man made traditions that it bears no resemblance to the teachings of Christ, and scriptural Christianity. An honest searching out of this will bear witness to the validity and truth of Ms. Theill's testimony and story.(You can't make this stuff up!) She's not the only one, it's simply that she's had the courage to tell about it in spite of the persecution and opposition. I truly feel sad for those who are still trapped and in bondage to this evil system. However, there is no real excuse, or....for those who use and abuse this corrupt system to further their own wicked, selfish, evil ends, and unregenerate natures.

Spiritual abuse is a serious form of abuse which occurs when a person in a cult-religious authority or a person with a unique spiritual practice misleads and maltreats another person in the name of a deity (god) or church or in the mystery of any spiritual concept. Spiritual abuse often refers to an abuser using spiritual or cult-religious rank in taking advantage of the victim's spirituality (mentality and passion on spiritual matters) by putting the victim in a state of unquestioning obedience to an abusive authority. Spiritual abuse refers to the use of spiritual knowledge to deprive, torture, degrade, isolate, control, or (in rare and extreme cases) even kill others. It is used by evil-minded spiritualists, sometimes, including cult-religious leaders, to gain advantage, dominate, or exercise control over others. Being an "action of man," in worst case scenarios, spiritual abuse can otherwise be considered a form of "spiritual terrorism."
Spiritual abuse is the maltreatment of a person ostensibly in the name of a god, deity, faith, cult-religion, or church, whether habitual or not.

"To do evil a human being must first of all believe that what he's doing is good ... "Ideology [or religion] - that is what gives devil-doing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others' eyes, so that he won't hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors." - Russian dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn

“The ordinary response to atrocities is to banish them from consciousness" writes Judith Herman in the opening statement to her book Trauma and Recovery. "To study psychological trauma is to come face to face both with human vulnerability in the natural world and with the capacity for evil in human nature. To study psychological trauma means bearing witness to horrible events . . . when the traumatic events are of human design, those who bear witness are caught in the conflict between victim and perpetrator. It is morally impossible to remain neutral in this conflict. The bystander is forced to take sides." – Judith Herman, M.D.

Jesus needs some new PR. Never before in the history of Christianity has the name Christian been more hated and ridiculed. Never before in the history of Christianity have people like Marty Warner, Betsy Close, Bill Heard, Bill Gothard, "pastor" Ron Sutter, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and others of that goat herd given people more reason to. I'm a follower of the teachings of Christ...but I don't like them either. I passionately resent the terrible things they do "in the name of God" and the false image they give of Christianity. You know who you are, and there is no excuse for it!

Um, yea, and until it does change, or they institute gun control I will continue to keep my equalizer, which seems to have a detrimental effect on overcharged, power trip male libido. Besides, I think little pocket size derringers are cute. Not bitter or cynical, just very realistic and practical.

Thank you, Tim, and Salem-News.com for your support and encouragement throughout these past years.

Everyday, all women in our society deal with male domination. Women are verbally intimidated, bullied, battered and killed by men, but our society is in a state of denial about the truth and severity of the abuse. Raising consciousness of this violence against women is the beginning of what it will take to bring it to an end. Susan Brown-Miller has said "rapists are the shock troops of patriarchy." It follows that the men who batter and psychologically abuse women are the army of occupation - forcing subjugation and servitude.

Tim King: Coral, our eternal thanks to you, our star writer who takes on the toughest subjects with the greatest success, someday things will turn around, I can't wait and we'll have all the more power to bring change, thank you!
