  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

    Understanding Ritual Abuse

    Understanding Ritual Abuse and Mind Control

    The first step in understanding ritual abuse is to learn what separates ritual abuse from other types of abuse.

    Ritual abuse is commonly repetitive abuse, which can be multi-generational and associated with ritual beliefs and practices (Lynette Danylchuk, Ph.D.).

    Ritual abuse is a brutal form of abuse of children, adolescents, and adults, consisting of physical, sexual, psychological and spiritual abuse, and the use of rituals. The physical abuse is severe, sometimes including torture. The sexual abuse is often painful, sadistic, and humiliating, intended as a means of gaining control over the victim. The psychological abuse is devastating and involves the use of rites, which may include mind-control techniques, mind-altering drugs, and intimidation which conveys to the victim a profound terror of the abusers. The spiritual abuse can destroy the concept of a loving God, produce estrangement from or an aversion to God, and induce feelings of worthlessness and hatred of oneself and others in power. During and after the abuse, most victims live in a constant state of terror, mental confusion, and dissociation.

    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?
