Description: A man is teaching in front of a screen that says "Re-Labelling Spiritual Abuse".

Shaming = Convicting
Controlling = Mentoring
Brainwashing = Instruction
Guilt = Repentance
Coercion = Persuasion
Abuse = Discipline

That about sums it up. Can you relate to this? If you'd like to read more on spiritual abuse I've written this blog post What is Spiritual Abuse? And how to recognize when it is happening to you.
