Product Description

Get practical advice on how to minister to someone whose trust in God has been shattered by spiritual abuse and find out key ways to protect yourself from this subtle manipulation.

Spiritual abuse — whether through the twisting of scripture or threatening behavior — inflicts immense emotional pain and blocks spiritual growth. It is one of the most common forms of abuse in the church today and it often goes undetected, masking itself as "truth from a man of God." In this 96-page book, find out how to recognize the signs of spiritual abuse and how to know when leaders, pastors, or even spouses are using the Word of God to manipulate you (and others).

Find out biblical truths and practical advice on how to:
• Recognize warning signs of spiritual abuse (Includes helpful checklists)
•Distinguish between law and grace—(What does God really expect of me?)
•Begin to heal from spiritual abuse
•Respond to common arguments that fuel spiritual abuse, including:
◦ Shouldn't you honor those in authority?
◦ Is there no law for Christians to live by?
◦ What's the difference between legalism and biblical obedience?
