Is there biblical grounds for divorcing an abuser? — Eternity magazine
Eternity, a magazine published by the Bible Society of Australia and widely read by Australian Christians, has published Barbara Robert’s article Is there biblical grounds for divorcing an abuser?
We mentioned this on our Facebook page yesterday, but since not all of our readers follow our FB page we wanted to let you know here as well.
Australia has had a lot of media coverage and discussion about domestic abuse over the last year. This has affected some sections of the church and some Christians have become much more engaged with the topic than before.
I (Barb) believe that an article like the one linked above would have not have seen the light of day in an Australian Christian publication some years ago, but now the ground has shifted — thank God — and there seem to be more key people willing to address the issue, challenge some long-held myths, and sweep out from under the rug the hidden stories of abuse.
