Healing Is Possible. A Necessary Interview with Pricelis Perreaux-Dominguez
Powered by RedCircle
My heart hurts when I hear someone read a descriptive passage of scripture as if it’s prescriptive. Descriptive passages describe what happened in the Biblical times. Prescriptive passages inform and instruct us about how to conduct ourselves.
Just because church hurt and abuse existed during Biblical times does not mean that God approves of it, and, today, we’re here to learn how to help others heal and seek healing for ourselves when it’s necessary.
I’m so thankful that Pricelis joined us today because I could not think of anyone more adept at speaking about church hurt and abuse. I believe we’ve begun to see the same the Israelites saw in 1 Samuel 2. Younger generations are starting to view the opportunity to worship the Lord with contempt, just like the Israelites did when Eli’s son’s, Hophni and Phinehas, abused and manipulated them, and we must deal with this issue.
Today, we’re reflecting on Romans 12:9-16 (NIV)
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
