God, when will You stop these wolves?
When will people in church open their eyes and see?
When will they care more about truth and safety than losing their social community or needing the validation of wolves?
When will they truly worship You instead of these criminal predators calling themselves pastors?
How much longer do we have to watch more victims be destroyed by the place they went to find and serve You? Be led to hell by one they had the right to trust to always, always point to You?
How much longer do we have to fight pastors and elders for our safety? For care? For truth? For justice? For dignity?
When will we be safe at church and not preyed upon by pastors? How much longer will church be the safest playground for predators?
How much longer, God?
Church victims are so tired. Why, after our abuse by pastors are we on the front lines of the fight for truth and justice?
God, please stop this madness. Clean Your house. Show us Your real church.
Give us care and rest. We’re tired, Lord.
We’re broken, abandoned, spit on, and tired.
