The Spiritual Impact of Sexual Abuse and Other Trauma
Trauma of all kinds has profound spiritual impact for believers and unbelievers alike. Trauma raises questions about who God is, his character, his faithfulness, his purposes, and his capacity to keep us. It is critical that we understand the nature of these struggles and do not silence them or treat them as a failure of faith. When we silence victims of trauma and their questions we do further damage and in fact, become an obstacle in the work that God can and wants to do in a life battered by trauma and evil.
