Enough is Enough, Really

in the generous life

Today (or in the next few days), please make time to read this post. It’s a powerful message to the church about the welfare of women.

Enough is Enough by Gary Thomas

Enough is Enough, Really - A powerful message about abuse.

Gary’s post shares the heart of Christ when it comes to abuse and difficult marriages. His message is balanced and sound. He gives us words to express what we have always known, but didn’t know how to say.

We are called to love marriage, but when marriage enables evil, we should hate it (love it less) in comparison to a woman’s welfare.  Gary Thomas

Prayer Prompt  Ask God to soften the Church’s heart toward abused women (and some men too).

Thanks for the link to Gary’s article; he’s so very right.

Sometimes I think that when men embrace the Pauline concept of headship, they think it’s a buffet, and they can order up a slice of Herod.

I love how gracious he is, even when he’s really upset. There are parts of the church culture that make it OK to abuse power instead of using it to serve others. Props to Gary.

Thanks for sharing this, Lori. This is a huge problem in the church, and very few leaders are standing up and addressing it. I appreciate Gary Thomas taking a stand.
