As I read the Bible, violence is considered an offense against God and humanity.
Scripture is full of condemnations of violence – time, and again violence is associated with wickedness and condemned as “detestable to the Lord” (Psalm 11, Proverbs 3 & 10).
In particular, violence against women is condemned. In Jewish law, rape was viewed as equivalent to murder (Deut 22:26), as was pressuring a woman physically (Deut 22:25–27) or psychologically (Deut 22:28–29) into sex. In addition, the Bible recounts many stories of the horrific sexual abuse of women.
This is a flawed and imperfect world which means we must work harder to establish justice by advocating at local, state, and federal levels to enact laws that protect women and all persons suffering domestic violence or coercive control.
But what happens when a Woman has endured abuse in Faith or abuse in General? See there are safe loving Churches i attend a Bible based Church. It has helped me so much, it took many years to find a Church
that loved me unconditionally. I am a prudent Woman and would not
involve my Church rather they are there to help my community grow
spiritually. Back many years ago i talk in my book about mistakes i
made by not taking my abuse to police, and although well meaning I turned to freinds
i should have gone to police. But life is about lessons i grew in wisdom.

Abuse is non-acceptable.
Other countries are very much ahead in-laws to protect Women
we go to the Police; silence does not help; rules will only change when
we denounce abuse to Police.
Many police stations in other countries
have online police report filing if your city does not call 911. We must speak to enact laws, it would be years before i understood our faith communities can only do what they can. Abuse is to be reported to Police and to counselors, bring them into the equation.
We are in dire need of laws to protect women; today, things will only
change if you suffer abuse and denounce it; you need a paper trail. To
help you prosecute abusers. Report Abuse to police.Visit my others blogs on recognizing abuse
