Scriptures

Twisted Scriptures

This page contains links to articles that deal with particular Scriptures. For example, the top section will take you to articles we have published that deal with specific passages of Scripture that are very often twisted and perverted by both abusers and others who cling to false interpretations and applications of these passages. The bottom section, Sermons, does the same with sermons I have preached addressing the same issue.

Encouragement from the Psalms

This page contains links to 13 Psalms that will encourage the oppressed and remind us of how God feels about the oppressor.

Scriptures that Demonstrate an Abuser is Not a Christian

Scripture makes it very clear that an abuser (as we define abuser – definition given on this page) cannot be a Christian.  This page contains a list of Scriptures that support this conclusion.

    I am in desperate need of advice. I am trying to stay a christian im my verbally abusive emotionally toxic marriage. I am married to a man who knows the scriptures better than I do and uses them against me constantly he is a master manipulator a master liar and a master at turning everything around on me to the point of where I think I am losing my mind I have become agoraphobic having anxiety self esteem. I was a stay-at-home mother and he has me beaten down to a point of feeling like i cannot recover i feel like I’ve lost everything and I feel like I’m heading straight to hell because I cannot stay a Christian and be married to him it’s too hard I react when he is so awful to me.

    Ive been married 22 yrs and the past 10 + yrs have been so so bad. I have finally started fighting back which im sure is wrong. I have no job I go to work with my husband sometimes we own a gutter business and I help him out Though he tells me he owns the I’m not a part of it at all. I don’t leave because I don’t want to abandon my youngest child. I have 2 children in college. I have absolutely no where to go no money to get my own place because he has all control over the money . He works when he wants and doesn’t work on days That were fighting he uses going to work as a tool for punishment for me if I have not done something hes told me to do or if hes just mad and wants to punish me. He threatens it all the time and fullfills it too. He does a good punish me because he knows it’s one of my fears is money and bills Because 10 years ago he was lying in hid things from me until i found out. I could go on and on.

      Mary – Let me make a few suggestions. I am very sorry you have been so abused. First, he does not know Scripture better than you. He does not know Christ. Christ does not know him. He is not a Christian. He may have more data in his head about the Bible but it’s real meaning he knows nothing of.

      Second, you are not going to be a worse Christian if you divorce him. Divorcing an abuser is not sinful. It is right. Don’t think that the Lord will in any way condemn you for it. In fact, He will help you get free.Don’t listen at all to people who claim the Bible says divorce is a sin. They are wrong and often they are just plain working as allies with your abuser.

      It is not easy to get free of an abuser when there are children involved. I understand. If you haven’t, you might want to go down to the women’s center in your community and tell them about your situation. They can help you make plans and give you advice.

      Many blessings to you in Christ,
      Jeff
