A Reformed “Spotlight”: Fighting Spiritual Abuse in the Reformed Church
I am so angry — and, I fear, not all of it is holy anger.
Earlier this week, I sat with a young man who, six years later, is still recovering from spiritual abuse at the hands of a “respected” Reformed pastor. He’s one of a number of this pastor’s victims, all of them gifted and godly men, but all of whom have had their confidence shredded and their faith devastated by this man’s abuse of his spiritual position and authority.
Within 24 hours I was sitting with another young man, whose details I cannot reveal, but let’s just say he had also suffered from another Reformed church’s failure to follow basic biblical, and even just humane, process.
I wasn’t looking for these men. They just “happened” to be in my life this week.
