The Washington Post had a deep and long article about sexual abuse inside evangelical Christianity. The article looks at different situations and is one of the best reads I have seen in a while. This is a brief post
“The thing about denial is that it doesn’t feel like denial when it’s going on.”
“When denial is in play, a person simply refuses to recognize the truth, no matter how apparent.”
Finally, dear brothers and sisters,[a] we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more. 2 For you remember what we taught you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.

This afternoon I was reading The Washington Post as I do daily. In the process I saw this long and detailed article that looked at the epidemic of sex abuse and sex assault inside evangelical Christianity. It looked at the topic from the context of the Bill Hybels situation, to Bill Gothard to Sovereign Grace and the culture inside evangelicalism which enables it. This is one of the best reads I have seen which is why I am doing this brief post. The article is called, “The sin of silence.”
