Discipline or Abuse

Discipline or Abuse

"Discipline or Abuse" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

Whenever I was exposed to spiritual abuse or inflicted it, the common justification was that it was good for me and good for you.

Every day I see people getting bullied by believers and every one of the bullies say something like, "I'm sorry, but it's not me. It's God!"

I think they genuinely believe that.

But it doesn't matter how you dress it, it's abuse.

I think a lot of theology is created to vindicate the worst in human behavior, including hate.
