The Barnabas Ministry provides on-line resources to help people
deal with unsatisfying, difficult, unhealthy or abusive church
There are not many resources for people seeking to understand or
address a bad church experience. Most churches and other
spiritual growth resources are completely ill-equipped to help
people deal with the damage done.
Barnabas Ministry articles seek to help fill this gap and
provide thoughtful discussion at the heart of the issue, from
somebody who has seen these dynamics in multiple churches and
from multiple perspectives over the course of several decades. If you or
a loved one is involved in a troubling church situation, the Spiritual Abuse and Recovery section
is the place you want to start.
Another important section to check out is Biblical
Interpretation. Bible misuse is at the root of a lot of
bad stuff in churches.
