Domestic Violence

We wanted to share this message from Pastor Carter about domestic violence that he preached last October for Domestic Violence month.

“Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man.”
-Proverbs 22:24

In this passage, Solomon reminds us that no one should be a victim of domestic violence—EVER!! Domestic violence is often overlooked, excused, or denied. Domestic violence and emotional abuse are defined as behaviors used by one person in a relationship to control the other. Partners may be married or not married; living together, separated or dating.

This violence can be criminal and includes physical assault (hitting, pushing, shoving, etc.), sexual abuse (unwanted or forced sexual activity), and stalking. Although emotional, psychological and financial abuses are not criminal behaviors, they are forms of abuse and can lead to criminal violence. Victims can be of any age, sex, race, culture, religion, education, employment or marital status. ANYONE CAN BE A VICTIM!
