Lou; Your questions are a little confusing; if you want to know what spiritual abuse is you can go into:; it is a support website for those abused spiritually; it describes what spiritual abuse is.

There are also books on spiritual abuse

In a nutshell, spiritual abuse is when a spiritual leader uses his own agenda to try and force you to do things against your will; blames and shames you.

Anytime a pastor/spiritual leader causes people to lose hope and want to commit suicide, that is abuse. He doesn't/did not have the skills to counsel women who were being abused. I am the moderator of an abused survivors' group, and have been counseling the abused for many years.

I was naive (as the other women were) in going to him for help; he was without a clue. He told one woman (who, according to the Bible) had grounds for divorce (her husband was committing adultery); this "pastor" told her she had to "stay" and still have sex with him, because it was her "duty."

Sad, sick counsel, indeed.

I was voted out of membership, with my name up on a big screen, followed by the words: "Conduct Unbecoming a Child of God." For the ex they used the words, "church discipline." Ironic...the ex is the abuser. Christians "shooting their wounded."

It happened 4 years ago; I am triggered by religious words; cannot go into any church now. That is what spiritual abuse does.
