A Lesson in Things Not to Say to an Abuse Victim

A Cry For Justice

The following comment was recently received by us on an older post that recounted some of the good things R.C. Sproul and John MacArthur have written in the past. (To read the old post click here.) In that post I just wanted to be fair and tell everyone that I have benefited greatly from Sproul and also a considerable amount in years past from MacArthur’s writings (Ashamed of the Gospel for example, or The Gospel According to Jesus).  But both of these men have written more than once in the past that they deny abuse as a biblical grounds for divorce, and that is a very, very serious error.  Sproul may have softened on his stance and if he has then we wish that he would make his changed opinion public (and we have encouraged him to do so).  MacArthur on the other hand remains unchanged on this point.
