Unmasking the Domestic Abuser in the Church

Freedom of Thought is Not Allowed

Rom 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Eph 1:16-18 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, (17) that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, (18) having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,

Sin has darkened the mind of the unbeliever. It darkened OUR minds before the Lord shone His light upon us and regenerated us. His work of transforming our minds, of increasing the light in our thinking, is part of His ongoing work of sanctification in us.

One aspect of this transformation of mind is that we are less and less deceived by Satan’s lies. We increasingly see evil for what it is and we recognize righteousness more and more.

The wicked one does not like this business. He prefers to keep us in darkness. Through his lies and deceptions he intends to interfere with the Lord’s transforming work in us.

Enter the RASN, the servant of the devil.

RASN’s want to dictate to us not only what we say, but what we think. They actually work to force us to think the thoughts they insist upon. As you consider this more carefully, you begin to realize the incredible nature of this kind of propagandizing control.

In any tyranny, propaganda is the common instrument of “group think.” And anyone to dares to think thoughts not in line with the “company,” is deemed an enemy of the regime and either “re-programmed” or murdered.

Your RASN is just such a tyrant in his/her little kingdom. He is constantly at work ensuring that his target only think approved thoughts. It isn’t merely that the target is not permitted to SPEAK such thoughts. It goes further. They are not allowed to THINK thoughts which are the truth about the RASN’s wickedness.

So, for example – if a victim of the RASN speaks truth about the RASN, it is the result of a kind of renewing of the mind. An enlightenment which exposes the evil one’s deceptions. It is this mind renewal, these true and new realizations that the RASN hates and works to destroy. The priesthood of an idol temple not only wants outer conformity – bowing down to the idol – like Antichrist, it demands that people really BELIEVE in their thoughts that the Baal is god.

See it? When you are the target of a RASN, war is being waged against your right as a human being to even think truth, let alone speak it. Unlike a normal person who realizes that someone does not think highly of them or does not really like them, and therefore walks away, the RASN declares war. How DARE you think any thoughts except that the RASN is a god.

To live under the tyranny of a RASN is to live in bondage. It is to live in a kingdom run by a tyrant who dictates not only what you can or cannot do, but who demands that you only think the thoughts he/she allows.

Therefore, as the Lord increasingly enlightens the minds of His people, there is necessarily going to be a war – a war between truth and falsehood, between light and darkness, between good and evil.


It’s Those Brief Unguarded Moments


“You Talked About Me” – The Unpardonable Sin

    What is a RASN?

    That’s very true and I hadn’t realized how true until I read this! I felt like he was trying to kill my soul and it makes sense they must capture your mind to have complete control. That’s one of the reasons it is so difficult to get away. All your thinking has to change.

  3. Lydia

    This is so true! I’m going through a divorce from a RASN right now. It is torment… please pray for me to get out soon! I feel like I’m being held hostage. These blog posts have been so helpful. I also read your book. Thank you!

    Always hardcore scriptural truth and therefore reality from you Pastor Crippen!

    Control, power, and the ability to manipulate others, is the only thing those with a worthless mind are about. Only…..nothing more.

    The original worthless one is the prototype and he has many centuries of experience, but God has shown us through his word that the devil (and his spiritual children the RASNs) can never truly learn anything of value. They can never learn truth and therefore live in reality. We who belong to God can….so we must be destroyed in the minds of the evil ones.

    Propaganda has deceived us into thinking that the evil ones want the light that lives in us so they will come the Christ. This is not at all true. They like how our beautiful hearts make them feel but it’s actually a form of worship to them. They think it’s their right to have access to beauty and goodness but not to change their hearts. Rather, to feel like they own us.

    Please review God’s checklist of RASNs in Romans 1:29-32 and 2 Tim 3:1-5. If it helps, keep it on hand to remind yourself that these people are completely empty of any good things and are only filled with evil. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 is another checklist if you put them as opposite to everything listed. They are the opposite of everything good.)

    If you are here because God has shown you this evil, he has a wonderful plan for your life. It may not seem like it now but trust Jesus, he will hold you as you go through this. This website will keep you grounded and reassure you that you are not alone and that you are not insane. They are….truly so. They are 100 percent incapable of living in reality. You’ll see that more as time goes by.

    Isaiah 66:3; “These have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations…” They love who and what they are. Love their evil and would never change it even knowing they will end up in hell. Never forget this truth.
