    What Is Spiritual Abuse?

    in Spirituality

    This can be a hard - and little known - topic to dive into, but we're going there like the courageous ones we are! Spiritual abuse is more common than we may know or realize, and just like all forms of abuse, it involves another exerting their power over you with ill intentions. This can happen psychically, energetically, karmically, and unconsciously.  And in the spiritual industry, it can be hidden or underground unless you are aware of what is transpiring. This show is gonna give you a heads up and tips!


    Join bestselling author, consciousness teacher, intuitive and astrologer Molly McCord for this lively weekly show! Molly shares inspiring cosmic messages, astrological updates, spirituality insights, and timeless wisdom to add empowering awesomeness to your life - and have some fun along the way!

    Breaking the Silence Part 2 of Spiritual abuse ~Pulpit Thugs

    in Christianity

    Last week we began a discussion with Pastor Olivia DeLoach about spiritual abuse in the church.  We discussed the simularities between domesic abuse and spiritual abuse.  That being, power and control.  Tonight let's examine in more detail how to identify an abusive pastor.  We will look at the scripture in 1 Chron 16:22, "touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm",  and how it is often used to condone misconduct in the pulpit.  Lastly we will discuss who should hold the Pastor and leaders accountable.  Are you covering for an abusive Pastor?  Tune in tonight for Breaking the Silence with Pastor Katie Pierce and H.O.P.E. Alliance Inc.

    Spiritual Abuse

    in Family

    Spiritual abuse is the process of misrepresenting an established order for the deliberate or radical purpose of compelling another to  routinely think submissively and passively act until the central core of who they are is no longer in their control but in the agent's.
    Unlike other types of abuse, a state of spiritual abuse is the primary disorder in the collective human neurosis. That is, if spiritual abuse were "color" all other abuses - namely, sexual abuse, Substance abuse, emotional, spousal abuse, child abuse, religious abuse, etc would be types of color such as red, blue, yellow etc. Spiritual abuse cannot be self inflicting. It is always conducted by an agent and must be routinely performed over a period of time. The purpose or outcome of spiritual abuse can be observed in slavery, terrorism, suicides, prostitutions, corruption, murder, mental illness, bullying and other states of unconscious consequential action.

    "Kingdom Konversations": Spiritual Abuse & Church Hurt

    in Religion

    Have you ever been abused or experienced church hurt or know of someone who has testified of such occurences in the church? Spiritual abuse has been defined as "a kind of abuse which damages the central core of who we are. It leaves us spiritually discouraged and emotionally cut off from the healing love of God." 

    Ronaldd Enroth, author of Churches That Abuse, explains that the hurt and harm of spiritual abuse is rarely inflicted upon people with the intention to wound anyone. Most spiritual abuse is inflicted by Christians who are very sincere, who believe they are obeying the Bible in sharing Christ with others, and who often believe that they are being led by the Holy Spirit. 

    "Do the abusers intend to inflict hurt? In most cases, probably not. They usually are unaware of what they are doing to people in the name of God. They may, in fact, be convinced that their behavior is what the Lord has mandated. What others interpret as control they may view as caring for the flock. They are usually so narcissistic or so focused on some great thing they are doing for God that they don't notice the wounds they are inflicting on their followers".

    Join Truth Talk with special guest panelist, Evangelist Dihima Mclean, Bronx, New York as she shares the impact of spiritual abuse and its root in witchcraft by way of the 'Jezebelic spirit' and other subtle tactics of the devil. Understand how to overcome through spiritual warfare and prayer! Happening at 6:00 pm.

    Kingdom Konversations: Spiritual Abuse & Church Hurt Pt. 2

    in Religion

    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. 

    Join Truth Talk as we contine with the topic, "Spiritual Abuse & Church Hurt Pt. 2" with returning guest, Evangelist Dihima McLean of Dihima McLean Ministries, Bronx New York.  Tune in live at 6:00 pm.

    Taking It To The Streets: Spiritual Abuse, The Silent Crisis

    in Religion

    Spirit Alive is dedicated to sharing God's word with the world, and I am personally committed here at Taking It To The Streets to bringing to you, our listeners, some of the most uplifting and inspiring interviews, along with some of the most anointed preaching and teaching that you are going to hear this side of the River Jordon, because we are devoted to bringing the word of God in application in order to bring about transformation in the hearts and minds of men. 

    Join Bishop Shirleen Cook Mondays @ 5:00 PM (PST)

    Call: 424-675-8300

    On today's program we looked at 21 methods of operation used by spiritually abusive leaders, and those of an excellent spiritual leader. We will also look at the role that members of the congregation play in enabling the abuse, and how to effectively deal with abusive leadership according to the word of God.

    I pray that this program will cause all of us who are spiritual leaders to check ourselves, pray, and dig into the motives of why we do what we do. And after hearing this teaching, the Godly leader will not be offended, but if an area of weakness is recognized, they will simply realign themselves in the Lord. The word of God clearly teaches that if a leader is not walking like Jesus, loving like Jesus, teaching like Jesus, going like Jesus, or serving others like Jesus then the body of Christ has a problem, and it could very well be you.

So what are the SIGNS of SPIRITUAL ABUSE.  How can we recognize if a fellowship is unhealthy, and how can we heal our own spiritual abuse and land solidly on Christ?
