FAQ Highlight — Should a domestic abuse victim just put up with being abused?

A Cry For Justice

Many abuses victims have been told by “well-meaning” people something like this: ‘God does not give you more than you can bear. It is His will that you are in this marriage, and He has called you to suffer patiently for Him in it.’ Thus, they (abuse victims) are made to feel doubly guilty when they consider leaving their abuser. The more committed to Christ the victim is, the more she suffers the pangs of guilt due to this “helpful” advice. [Jeff Crippen]

Because many victims are given this erroneous advice, we have compiled posts that discuss what Scriptures says about meritorious suffering, fleeing from persecution, and when is suffering God’s will under the FAQ: “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake” … so should I just put up with being abused?
