A Cry For Justice

Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

A wolf in the sheep pen – by Dr. Morven R. Baker

This article is linked from the blog of Dr. Morven R. Baker –

I am beginning to think that this forgiveness thing has gone a little bit too far.  At least its definition has been stretched to the lunacy stage.  As Christians, we are commanded to “love your enemies, do good to them that hate you,” but I don’t think a church in Florida has it quite right. The elders at Christ Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, have invited the newly released convicted child molester and rapist, Darrell Gilyard, to preach at their Sunday morning services.  This is the man who served three years in prison for admitting that, for over three decades, he sexually abused trusting women and girls under his ‘protection’ as pastor/shepherd in the churches he served, and who fathered a child with one of his rape victims.
