Spiritual Abuse and Can Theology Hurt People?

Can Theology Hurt people?

Yes theology can hurt people. It is a vicious circle. An abusive person finds ideas that explain, justify and endorse their actions. Then these actions somehow provide fodder for and even necessitate more abusive ideas.

And around and around we go. Anything... even something good... can be used as a weapon.

Including theology.

Stop abusive ideas!
Stop abusive behavior!
Simple enough!

Are you a victim or survivor of spiritual abuse?
