HAVE YOU EVER FOUND YOURSELF IN AN, OR WITNESSED AN, ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP? HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT GOD HAS TO SAY ABOUT DOMESTIC ABUSE AND VIOLENCE? WELL, THAT IS WHAT WE ARE HERE TO DISCOVER TODAY.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE EXPERIENCING ABUSE OF SOME SORT, IN THEIR RELATIONSHIPS. ACCORDING TO A SURVEY RESULT PUBLISHED ON THE HUFFINGTON POST,

Nearly 60 percent of all young women have experienced abuse:

94 percent cited emotional abuse. β€œEmotional abuse almost always escalates to physical violence,” says Diane Lass, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist at the Family Justice Center in San Diego.

 

IF YOU JUST HAPPENED TO BE AN ABUSER, YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW IT OR WANT TO ADMIT IT. STILL, THIS ARTICLE IS FOR YOU😊😊😊😊😊

WHAT DOES GOD HAVE TO SAY ABOUT DOMESTIC ABUSE? IS IT RIGHT, EVEN WHEN PROVOKED, TO ABUSE YOUR PARTNER? AND WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU FIND YOURSELF ON THE ABUSIVE END OF A RELATIONSHIP?

TAKING A STAND

TO HELP STEER OUR DECISIONS TOWARDS THE RIGHT DIRECTIONS, THERE ARE THREE IMPORTANT TRUTHS WE MUST CHOOSE TO ACCEPT AS DIVINE AND IMMUTABLE.

  1. GOD IS LOVE, AND ABUSE IS CONTRARY TO HIS NATUREDOMESTIC VIOLENCE

1 John 4:8Β (NKJV)

Β He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

NATURE OF GOD IS LOVE, NOT ABUSE.Β NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, WHERE YOU ARE, OR HOW OLD YOU ARE, GOD’S LOVE FOR YOU STILL REMAINS.

GOD’S LOVE IS ENDLESS.

Ephesians 3:19Β (NLT)

19Β May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then

you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

MANY ABUSERS TRY TO JUSTIFY THEIR ACTIONS BY PUSHING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR ABUSIVE BEHAVIOUR ON THEIR PARTNERS. THEY BELLITLE, INTIMIDATE, AND HUMILIATE THEIR PARTNERS, ON A REGULAR BASIS, IN AN ATTEMPT TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OVER THEIR VICTIMS.

ALL THESE ACTIONS ARE CONTRARY TO GOD’S LOVE NATURE. TRUST ME, GOD IS NOT PLEASED BY SUCH CRUEL ACTS OF SELFISHNESS. HIS NATURE DEMANDS A DIFFERENT RESPONSE FROM US; A FAITH RESPONSE BACKED BY ACTS OF KINDNESS AND LOVE.

CONSEQUENTLY, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE RESPOND TO GOD’S WORD. DOING SO CONDITIONS OUR ACTIONS, AND MINIMIZES THE CHANCES RESPONDING TO OTHERS IN AN ABUSIVE MANNER.

  1. GOD’S LOVE COMPELS US TO LOVE OTHERS

1 John 4:11-12 (KJV)

11Β Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

12Β No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

IN CHRISTIANITY AND LIFE AS A WHOLE, WE USE THE WORD OF GOD AS OUR STANDARD. NO MATTER WHAT OUR PERSONAL OPINIONS ARE, GOD’S WORD IS OUR FINAL AUTHORITY.

FORTUNATELY, THE WORD OF GOD IS FULLY LOADED WITH ALL THE REQUIRED MATERIALS NEEDED FOR A SUCCESSFUL CHRISTIAN LIFE. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHERE YOU ARE, OR WHAT YOU DO, GOD’S WORD HAS ALL YOU NEED. 1 TIMOTHY 3: 15 – 17.

MOST ABUSERS CLAIM TO LOVE THEIR PARTNERS, BUT THEIR ABUSIVE BEHAVIOURS SHOUT A DIFFERENT STORY ALTOGETHER. THE ABUSE CAN COME IN DIFFERENT FORMS, THE MOST COMMON BEING EMOTIONAL ABUSE.

EMOTIONAL ABUSE, THE MOTHER OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

DOMESTIC VIOLENCEFIRST OF ALL, IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT EMOTIONAL ABUSE IS THE MOTHER OF ALL TYPES OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP CAN ONLY ESCALATE TO PHYSICAL VIOLENCE, BATTERY, OR SEXUAL ABUSE AFTER IT BUILDS ON THE FOUNDATION OF EMOTIONAL ABUSE.

CONSEQUENTLY, IDENTIFYING THE SIGNS OF EMOTIONAL ABUSE IN A RELATIONSHIP, EARLY ENOUGH, IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE. THE EARLIER IT IS DISCOVERED, IN A RELATIONSHIP, THE EASIER IT IS TO ERADICATE, AND THE LESS DAMAGE IT IS LIKELY TO HAVE CAUSED.

HOWEVER, EMOTIONAL ABUSE CAN BE SO INSIDIOUS IN IT’S EARLY STAGES, THAT IT GOES ON FOR YEARS UNCHECKED. MOREOVER, BECAUSE IT LEAVES NO PHYSICAL SCAR, ABUSERS EASILY OVERLOOK THE EVIDENCE, SIGNS, AND DANGERS OF EMOTIONAL ABUSE.

RELATIONSHIP ABUSE VS THE LOVE COMMAND

ALL THESE FORMS OF RELATIONSHIP ABUSE ARE DIRECTLY AGAINST THE LOVE COMMAND. THIS IS BECAUSE ALL FORMS OF ABUSE CRIPPLES THE SELF-ESTEEM AND INDEPENDENCE OF THE VICTIM; IT SLOWLY CONSUMES HIS/HER JOY AND SENSE OF WELL BEING.

THEREFORE, BOTH PARTIES SHOULD BUILD UP THE RELATIONSHIP AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. IF A PARTNER ALMOST ALWAYS FEELS DEPRESSED OR DOWN AFTER CONVERSING WITH THE OTHER, CHANCES ARE, HE/SHE IS BEING EMOTIONALLY ABUSED WITHOUT REALIZING IT.

FOR MORE ON IDENTIFYING THE SIGNS AND TYPES OF RELATIONSHIP ABUSE, CHECK OUT THE H.J SHOW β€œRELATIONSHIP MATTERS”.

LOVE ON THE OTHER HAND, DOES NOT SUPPRESS OR BELITTLE. LOVE ONLY BUILDS UP AND STRENGTHENS.

  1. GOD OFFERS HOPE AND DELIVERANCE FOR THE OPPRESSED

DOMESTIC VIOLENCEDOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS A FORM OF OPPRESSION, AND GOD IS BLATANTLY AGAINST ALL FORMS OF ABUSE.

EVERYBODY WAS CREATED IN THE IMAGE, AND LIKENESS, OF GOD. HENCE, EVERYBODY DESERVES TO BE HEARD, VALUED AND RESPECTED. IT IS WRONG TO INTIMIDATE, HUMILIATE, OR CRIPPLE A PARTNER’S SENSE OF SELF WORTH. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THE REASON MIGHT BE, NOBODY SHOULD BE ABUSED.

GOD STANDS UP FOR HIS WHO MIGHT BE TOO WEAK TO STAND FOR THEMSELVES.

SO, WATCH OUT😠😠😠. IF YOU REFUSE, AFTER READING THIS POST, TO VALUE, BUILD UP, AND RESPECT YOUR PARTNER, YOU ARE MAKING YOURSELF AN ENEMY OF GOD😠😠. AND GOD WILL RESPOND TO CRY OF HIS CHILDREN😊😊😊😊.

IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME; GOD ALWAYS DEALS WITH OPPRESSORS AND ABUSERS. IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME. GOD IS COMING TO YOUR CASE SOON, BUT THE PUNISHMENT MIGHT NOT BE WHAT YOU PREPARED FOR.😊

  1. Although I’m not a believer of any god, definitely agreed, there cannot be any excuse for any kind of abuse, not even a god. Whichever. This touches strings, as my mother stood on the receiving end of domestic abuse when I was a child, until I grew up and eradicated the source out her life. People should watch out for each other a bit better, watch for signs by an other, as there are always.

    1. WOW, I REALLY WOULD LOVE TO HEAR MORE OF YOUR STORY.

      AND YOU ARE RIGHT, THERE CANNOT BE ANY EXCUSE FOR ANY KIND OF ABUSE. IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT BECAUSE WE ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR ACTIONS, ABUSIVE OR NOT.

      I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU EFFORTS IN SHARING YOUR OPINION WITH US.

      QUICK QUESTION, WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY YOUR STATEMENT THAT YOU “eradicated the source out her life.”? IT COULD MEAN SEVERAL DIFFERENT THINGS. JUST WANTED TO CLEAR SOME THOUGHTS FROM THE MINDS OF SOME READERS.

      GOD BLESS YOU, AND HAVE A GOOD DAY.
