Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

Does the Bible Command Me to Reconcile with My Abuser?

host Adriel Sanchez aired September 26, 2022

Episode 1062 Show Notes 

From the Show

Especially with sexual abusers and predators, they can and will use all sorts of tactics to get into the lives of others. To get control. They’ll even use apologies. Sometimes if one strategy isn’t working for manipulation and control they can switch to another one. We need to be careful not to accommodate this. Even still, there is hope and repentance to be found.
