A Cry For Justice

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

A Cry For Justice Reaches 100,000 Views!

UPDATE Sept 2021: I have come to believe that Jeff Crippen does not practise what he preaches. He vilely persecuted an abuse victim and spiritually abused many other people in the Tillamook congregation. Go here to read the evidence. Jeff has not gone to the people that he spiritually and emotionally abused. He has not apologised to them, let alone asked for their forgiveness.

Ok, maybe we are blowing the trumpets for ourselves just a little bit, but really we hope we are sounding them in thanksgiving to the Lord for His blessing of the ministry of this blog.  AND for every single one of you, our little but growing blog community.  As I write this article, I know that when I wake up in the morning (should the Lord allow it), we will have received over 100,000 views of this blog since we initiated it last January.  I don’t know if that is any kind of record or not, but to me this says that a huge number of people have read at least something of what we are trying to say here.

Yes, we want to see even more growth in the numbers in the future.  And the fundamental reason is because we want to see more and more and more victims helped.  Specifically, Christian victims of abuse who are right at this moment absolutely confused and in the fog — and in danger of their lives — because the very people who should be helping them are telling them unbiblical distortions that are keeping them in bondage.

We want the noise of this Cry for Justice to grow and grow and grow so loud that it cannot be ignored anymore.  May the Lord Jesus Christ bless and enable us all in this work and may His people be set free to enter into the freedom He has effected for each one of us.

Blessings to all in Christ,

Jeff & Barbara

    Wonderful news, Jeff, and thanks for tipping me off; I scarcely ever look at our stats.

    I read somewhere recently about how this kind of work is like the Israelites marching round Jericho. Their shout was loud enough to break those walls right down! Let it be so for us.

  2. Congratulations! Thank you for all of your sacrifice, your hard work, and your boldness! Thank you both for standing in the gap for us! May God bless you both and this ministry richly!

  4. Praise God! Thanks for the update – let’s pray for more!

    May God continue to speak to and through you. May God richly bless your ministry. I am thankful for Jeff and Barbara. I am also so very thankful to all who post comments. The help I have received in the few weeks that I’ve been lurking here has been immeasurable.

  8. Thank you for standing up against abuse in all its horrid forms! Thank you for sharing your thoughts and lessons.

    Congratulations! Thank you, Jeff and Barbara, for this blog, your desire to see truth spoken, and your wisdom. Thank you!

  10. Congratulations, Jeff and Barbara: You are definitely meeting a need by giving a voice to victims of abuse in the church. Praise God for your ministry.

    Amen! And congratulations!!…I agree with Julie Ann, you are meeting a need by giving survivors a voice in the very place those voices should have heard in the first place. It takes alot of courage to stand up to your enemies, it takes even more to stand up to a friend or fellow Believer…..(I borrowed that quote and added to it : ).

    Many blessings, may your work Will be heard and have an impact that spark monumental change!

    Congratulations and a great big huge thank you for your boldness, courage, and love to and for us. I just finished Jeff’s sermon series on the abuser (including Barb’s presentation to the Sunday School) and more than once I wanted to give you both a big hug and try to tell you how much you have done for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a safe and encouraging place for me to come as I discover the abuse I have been under for the last 22 years. I am getting stronger and a big part of that is because of your work and commitment to the cause of ministering to abused women and to getting the word out. God bless you for your obedience to his call on your lives.

    Congratulations Jeff and Barbara!

      Thanks very much Diane, and everyone. Actually you can see that in the last month or so numbers of the posts on the blog are stories and articles written by some of you! That is really what adds a huge appeal to the ministry of the blog because it allows everyone to interact with others who have been through the same valleys. It is extremely validating and empowering. We will continue to use selected reader-submitted stories and articles. Right now we have a couple in the works that are just tremendous!

    This has been a great help to me and I am really thankful for it! You have truly helped so many abused people and God’s reward to you will be great. Thank you for your diligence to minister to us, who have been victimized by spouses, churches, elders and some of us, all three at once. May God bless you both, always.
