A Cry For Justice

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

Marriage Missions International

I’ve been checking out the Marriage Missions International website recently and have posted a few comments there.

On one of my comments, I included a link to my Checklist for Repentance – “When Being Sorry is Genuine”

One of their administrators,  Cindy,  noticed my link and kindly added it into their post Signs that He or She Has Changed and Will Stop Abuse, so more people will see it.

I’ve also been commenting at the Marriage Missions post  Don’t Be A Divorce Pusher. Feel free to go there and add your opinion. I would love to see generalist Christian marriage sites becoming more helpful to victim-survivors of domestic abuse, and I’m encouraged that Marriage Missions seems to be open to dialogue and suggestions.

    I find the marriage missions site very comprehensive, with many many articles on the many aspects of marriage, including abuse in marriage. In fact, I got a lot of my information from their links and resources. The sad thing about these kinds of general marriage sites is that many victims write in for answers, but either don’t get responses to their comments, or get misleading advice, or worse, belittled by abusers who pose as wise mature Christians. You can tell by the language they use but it is not overt, so most readers will not think to dismiss those words.

  2. Dear Anon, if you haven’t already done so, you might like to submit the comment you made above to the MMI “Don’t be a divorce pusher” post as well. I think Cindy might be interested in what you have to say. I am very heartened by the way she has been responding so far.

  3. Wonderful resources. Thanks for sharing these Barbara.
