5 Myths of Domestic Violence

Segment 1 (00:00) – Abuse can be found in Christian households. Some churches claim that if the wives submit, then this the abuse wouldn’t happen. However, the husband does not have the authority to harm his wife in any way.

Segment 2 (07:37) – Someone should not be blamed as the reason for their spouse’s abuse. Ezekiel 18, each person has their own sin. Adam started the tactic of blaming the woman for his own sin. Just because there is repentance and forgiveness doesn’t mean the relationship should be reconciled. Wisdom and time is needed or else the abuse could happen again.

Segment 3 (15:50) – You want to prepare for the storm before it hits. Abuse will eventually come to the church and the church needs to be ready to handle it appropriately. The church needs to be ready to listen to the one abused and surround them to find an answer to the sin problem. You need to hear both sides of the story. Does your church have a battle plan for dealing with abuse?
