Home Outreach Leaders Articles for Outreach & Missions What Does the Bible Say About Domestic Abuse? What Does the Bible Say About Domestic Abuse? B. The life of Jesus is the biblical model for understanding God, and for identifying how God responds to violence and abuse. Jesus’ ministry was about exposing injustice and advocating for the marginalized, oppressed and abused. By speaking to these, and other women in Scripture, Jesus brings women back into a position of status in society.

Church leaders who require victims to forgive and reconcile do not fully understand the scope of the trauma. Is there a church member with rental property where a woman like Cathy and her children can stay?

Church leaders who require victims to forgive and reconcile do not fully understand the scope of the trauma. How can ministry leaders help these women so they don’t become another tragic statistic? Listen and validate. Is there a church member with rental property where a woman like Cathy and her children can stay? Are there coaches or counselors on staff who can help Cathy create a plan of action? Will the youth pastor and the children’s minister step up to provide emotional support for the children? Are the elders willing to confront the husband, to help him address his issues, and work toward his emotional healing?

Christians and Domestic Violence, an indictment of church teachings of wifely submission and male headship. Saddleback’s position is typical evangelical fare on the subject of domestic abuse and domestic violence, responds Andersen.

Christians and Domestic Violence, an indictment of church teachings of wifely submission and male headship. As she sees it, by convincing women that leaving their relationships is not an option, these teachings have laid the ground for a domestic violence epidemic within the church. Typical because, like other well-known and extremely influential evangelical leaders, Saddleback is pushing a message of leave while the heat is on, but only with the intention of returning to the marriage when the violence has cooled.

Middle class working women and domestic violence appears as an inherent contradiction in Indian society. By the very defination middle class implies that the woman is economically self sufficient.

Domestic violence and abuse are used for one purpose and one purpose only .

Domestic violence and abuse are used for one purpose and one purpose only: to gain and maintain total control over you. An abuser doesn’t play fair. An abuser uses fear, guilt, shame, and intimidation to wear you down and keep you under their thumb. Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone; it does not discriminate. Abuse happens within heterosexual relationships and in same-sex partnerships. It occurs within all age ranges, ethnic backgrounds, and economic levels. If you witness these warning signs of abuse in a friend, family member, or co-worker, take them very seriously. People who are being abused may

CP: Given that the majority of domestic violence victims are males and the overwhelmingly number of clergy are male, what advice do you have for handling the lay/pastoral relationship? . Both on domestic violence and sexual abuse, I think trying to keep it in the church is not good or healthy or the best response. I would like for Christians and particularly for leaders in Christian communities to be more aware of domestic violence and sexual assault so then they can more powerfully and persuasively connect the good news that comes from the gospel of Jesus to the pain and suffering where a lot of hope and healing is needed.

About two women a week die from domestic violence in England and . But men are also victims of domestic abuse

About two women a week die from domestic violence in England and Wales, a rate which has remained fairly steady for more than a decade. Too many young men, and in some surveys it shows young women as well, think that some form of abuse or violence within a relationship is a norm - part of a relationship," said May. But men are also victims of domestic abuse. There are about 5,000 domestic violence cases brought against women every year. Experts below discuss what should be done to address the issue. And when they have escaped, services based on their individual needs to help them and their children rebuild their lives are increasingly scarce.

A biblically-based book that researched Jesus' life as one who experienced violence and abuse both personally and otherwise. It shows Christians and others how to address domestic violence and abuse like Jesus did by listing dozens of abuses which Jesus experienced, by identifying specific things Jesus did in abusive or violent situations, and by featuring 77 cases in which Jesus demonstrated specific behaviors in response to abuse and violence related to both victims and abusers.

Dr. Cummings book hits the nail on the head. Her education, personal experience and love of God are very evident in the book. Dr. Cummings not only uses her personal experience and her PhD in psychology to give us answers, she also cites innumerable scripture to give us insight as to what Jesus not only feels about abuse, but what He expects us and the church to do about it.Especially THE CHURCH.
While more and more Christian women are coming forward with their experiences with abuse, the church (as a whole)is still reluctant to take action on our behalf. Church leadership seems to have one or all of three attitudes. They either hold on to the belief that the wife is to submit even if it means destruction or death and be glad she has a husband, or they feel so uncomfortable about the problem of abuse in the Christian home that they sweep it under the proverbial rug and hope it goes away, or they are just totally ignorant of what the scriptures say about abusing and being abused.
I am ordering a copy for myself and one for our church leadership. I believe every church should not only have a copy for it's own reference, but multiple copies for the women in each individual church. I also believe that each church should use this as a bible study for couples.
Ladies, just because we are Christians does not mean we are to be doormats, punching bags or absorb destructive verbal attacks. Dr. Cummings shows, very clearly, that Christ would not take it (until His time had come) and He does not expect us to take it either.
