Spiritual Abuse in the Church
Churches and Christian Organizations listed here are among those that we and others have received inquiries and/or compaints about. We have listed the information to make vulnerable people aware of some of the problems they can encounter in SOME churches and organizations. We ask Church leaders to consider prayerfully what is on these pages that they may not fall into using the same manipulative practices the cults use. Any who find they are using these tactics we pray they will cease doing so and again walk the path of the servant leader. It is our experience that the majority of Christian church leaders do their best to be caring and supportive. Those using cultic tactics in their churches only serve to bring ill repute on the Church and its message as a whole.
