I recently posted a few posts about Campus Rape Prevention, and identifying different types of rapists. I also shared some information about moving on after an assault. One of the things that I would like to say to my readers who have been victims, that it was not your fault. It is a flaw of your society that  we too often blame the victim. I also want to say that there may be a period of anxiety, feelings of fear, dread, and flash backs to the attack. But these will pass, in time. What happened to you was a very real, traumatic event, but you don't have to remain a victim. There is healing for you, in Christ, far beyond anything that a therapist can offer you.

All too often, therapists and psychologists have stepped up to fill in to try to provide help that the church has failed to offer. I think there is too often, in the church, a lack of willingness to talk about the subject of sexual assault, and as much as I wish it weren't so, it is the church that is the leader when it comes to blaming the victim. But the misconduct of the church doesn't one whit change the fact that Jesus has the power to heal and restore, and even make you stronger than you were before.

I once made the mistake of sharing with a so called Pastor, the trauma that happened to me as a child, after molestation by my stepfather. You know what he said to me? "You do understand your share of the blame for this, right?" And then, he told other people, what I had told him in confidence. A few weeks later, at a prayer meeting, one of the "sisters" in the church, as she was praying for me, mentioned the "revelation" from "the Lord" about how I needed to forgive in this matter. Baloney. I don't believe the Lord revealed anything to her, because the Lord is not a gossip, unlike people.

So, my point is that Jesus will help you, when people cannot, and unlike people, Jesus can truly heal, and He will never let you down. The conduct of the church is often completely contrary to the true nature of Christ.
