angerarchive: A Biblical View of verbal abuse

Finally, a man we can be proud of when it ocmes to religion and verbal abuse! What a great article! I recommend reading this for sure!

angerarchive: A Biblical View of verbal abuse: "t is not God's will for you (or your friend) to be in a verbally abusive relationship. Those angry and critical words will destroy your confidence and self-esteem. Being submissive in a marriage relationship (Ephesians 5:22) does not mean allowing yourself to be verbally beaten by your partner. 1 Peter 3:1 does teach that wives, by being submissive to their husbands, may win them to Christ by their behavior. But it does not teach that they must allow themselves to be verbally or physically abused.

Here are some key biblical principles. First, know that God loves you. The Bible teaches, 'The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.' (Psalm 34:18)

Second, deal with your feelings of guilt. You may be feeling that the problems in your marriage are your fault. 'If only I would do better, he wouldn't be so angry with me.' The Bible teaches in Psalm 51:6 that 'Surely You desire truth in the inner parts; You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.' Even though you may have feelings of guilt, you may not be the guilty party. I would recommend you read my article on the subject of false guilt.{5}"
