Sometimes less is more.
Christian writer and blogger Mary DeMuth has a succinct post on ten signs of spiritual abuse. Having experienced spiritual abuse herself, Mary knows what she’s talking about. She notes the following:
- Spiritually abusive ministries have a distorted view of respect.
- Spiritually abusive ministries create a culture of fear and shame.
- Spiritually abusive ministries have a charismatic leader who often starts off well but eventually slips into arrogance, perfectionism, and pride.
