Spiritual abuse and church hurt is a widespread issue amongst congregants in the Body of Christ. Spiritual abuse and church hurts is defined as the mistreatment of a person who is in need of help, support or greater spiritual empowerment, with the result of weakening, undermining, or decreasing that person's spiritual empowerment" (Scott Nicoly, 2006). In a manipulative church, the pastor or senior leaders can try to put undue influence on the choices that people in their congregation are making. They can also sway someone’s decision in a matter to keep them under their control, or to keep them from leaving the church. This is also called charismatic witchcraft.
People in a controlling church are often told they cannot leave the church with God's blessing unless the pastor approves the decision. They are warned that if they don’t follow the pastor’s guidance, not only will God not bless them, but they will also bring a curse upon themselves or their family. Leaving the “covering” of the church and the controlling pastor will result in some sort of calamity.

Tonight's special guest is Stefan Verstappen from Toronto, a writer and martial arts teacher with over 35 years experience. He developed The Little Warrior program featuring The Little Warriors Street Safety Books over a ten-year period of teaching young children safety and self-defense. He is also the author of The Art of Urban Survival, and has done dozens of radio interviews on the subject of his booklet and video on the subject of "Defense Against the Psychopath." Stephan asks, "Since it is impossible for you or someone you can trust to watch over your children at all times what can we do to make sure our children survive such an encounter?" And he answers his own question, "One solution to preventing children from becoming victims is to train them to be able to prevent being targeted." Children do not have to understand all the reasons why something is wrong, they just need to know when something is wrong and what to do. Role playing games teach by doing, rather than lecturing. By physically re-enacting a skill through games and exercises, children create new nerve pathways in the brain that will enable them to use that skill instinctively later if they need to. These good instincts will serve to protect kids their whole lives. The Little Warriors is a unique street-proofing and safety program that teaches kids how to be safe, how to protect themselves from danger, and what to do in an emergency.

Catholic priests are abusing young boys and girls, rabbi's are taping unsuspecting women during a religious bathing ritual, pastors are stealing church money. Where does it end. Seems like the real reason of church is lost in the glamour of the position, money, power, church politics and those who only desire to be in leadership. Where is the sense of community for the poor, the lost, the homeless, the jobless, those in need of spiritual guidance. Use to learn about Jesus, but not now, we need to get the pastor a new car. Did Jesus have a car?

"Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke," stated former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. Adult bullying is a rising concern in the real world and online. Adults are as malicious as bad kids on the playground, but no one is supervising their activity or protecting their targets. And their victims are other adults who are not immune to the trauma of bullying. When one uses superior strength or influence to intimidate others, that’s classic bullying. Emotional abuse is characterized by subjecting another to behavior that may result in psychological trauma, like anxiety, chronic depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. In one Seinfeld episode, George and Jerry recall their tyrannical gym teacher who used to give boys wedgies and encourage them to beat each other up. Girls don’t do anything like that, do they? Jerry asks Elaine. Oh no, Elaine replies. We just tease each other until one of us develops an eating disorder. The worst part of being bullied or abused in a relationship, is that often you don’t even realize it’s happening. Manipulative people twist your thoughts, actions, wants, and desires into something that better suits how they see the world. Bullies don’t want cooperation, they want control. Emotional bullying is often subtle and found in adult relationships and in the workplace. An emotional bully might use sarcasm, threaten, belittle, or humiliate. Join me and Life Coach Jenn A Nocera as we discuss the specific signs of bullying and emotional abuse. After the show check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

It was so good we had to continue the conversation.
Has the Black Church Failed US?
We will continue our conversation on religion, spirituality, and faith. What is holding us back and how can we improve. We will discuss the manipulation and control that is used in the church, church code and how to decipher it, and the lack of focus on mental health, substance abuse, incarceration, and domestic violence in the community, the congregation, and the pulpit..
What are our expectations, experiences, and situations that allow and employ us to go back over and over again.
How many people worship their pastors instead of GOD? Do our churches focus more on Wealth than Health and Soul Saving? Are we representing anything different than we see in the WORLD?
We will also add discussions around the music/musicians, preacher/ reality tv stars, celebrity status, contribution, obligation, and/ or mandate to their parishioners, leadership team, and themselves.
We hope all of you will join us for this discussion of how the one pivotal force in our communities has now turned into a "joke" for many non believers and a "circus" for Christians and believers to gather and become monotonous.
Come Get on the COUCH!!!!
