Spiritual Abuse and the Church: Why Should We Listen? with Teasi Cannon—The Alisa Childers Podcast #129
My friend Teasi Cannon and I have walked through a lot together. We decided to give my viewers a bird's eye view of what our conversations have looked like as we've processed the spiritual abuse we walked through together. We pray it will edify and encourage the body of Christ and possibly be a vehicle of recognition and healing.

It is so tragic that this sort of abuse is so prevalent in the Body of Christ all around the world. You guys have handled your experience with more grace than I managed. It is still painful years later and I struggle whenever bump into the minister who abused the members of our church, (he retired in our town).

Thank you so much for sharing your story. Sadly, I have just walked away from a second abusive church situation. You have put to words that I struggle to find to explain my thoughts and emotions. In trying to process, I often end up feeling like I am the crazy one. You shared so many thoughts I have had through all of this. This so breaks my heart for all of those involved. I pray God frees more of His own from such hurtful, confusing circumstances.

I mulled over this podcast for several days because I felt there is such a fine line. We've been on the other side of being in a leadership position and people calling us heretics and "processing" with other believers.We really felt like they were just gossiping and would have preferred they come to us directly and voice their concerns. I grieve that the church is suffering with a generation that is nitpicking over the correct vocabulary and over sensitivity to just about anything. I'm sure that Teasi and you were hurt and obviously leadership did not handle the situation well. So where is the unity in the body of Christ? And how do we come together over these sensitive issues that are plaguing our society?

Thank you so much for both of these videos about yours and Teasi’s spiritual abuse experiences. I have been trying to process my own spiritual abuse experience for quite some time and found so much validation in your words. I kept trying to brush off so much of my personal experiences as “reading too much into it.”
