Spiritual Abuse Survivor Network

Through cross-promotion and collaboration, the Spiritual Abuse Survivor Blogs Network is a powerful way of supporting and promoting spiritual abuse survivors in our individual blogging efforts.  We are working together toward a shared goal of increasing awareness of this issue of spiritual abuse – the control, the confusion, the devastation, our struggles, our triumphs, our survival and recovery.

Rather than being territorial and sectarian (as was the modus operandi of the abusive religious groups from which we have escaped), the Spiritual Abuse Survivor Blogs Network employs the proven, non-abusive strategy of teamwork to gain more visibility for all the individual survivor blogs – in this manner, we make more of a collective impact on Google’s radar so that the search engines direct more people to read about this issue of spiritual abuse.

Recently, there has been a significant increase in the number of spiritual abuse survivors starting their own blogs - so many awesome, enthusiastic writers who deserve a significant platform. The Spiritual Abuse Survivor Blogs Network is committed to helping these survivors succeed.

I am unspeakably proud that this network exists. I’m proud of those who are a part of it– for not only seeing the truth of what happened to them, but speaking out about it. The only possible way to end this is not through vitriolic campaigns, or hate, but through thoughtful, honest communication. Below is a list of the blogs that are a part of this network.

I hope that you will read what they have to say, even if you were not a victim of this type of abuse.

  4. I don’t always write about my experiences within the IFB cult on my blog, but I talk about it quite a bit. Is there a way of getting my blog linked with these? Are there requirements or guidelines or anything?

  5. I THOUGHT I WAS ALONE IN THIS AVENUE OF SPIRITUAL ABUSE CUZ ITHOUGHT IT WAS ME–NOT THE CHURCH LEADERS…WHAT HAPPENED TO ME HURT SO DEEPLY..SO RAW..SO NOT THE WAY I VISIONED CHRIST…..AND HIS MODEL OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR…I STILL BELIEVE BUT HAD TO LEAVE THE CHURCH I WAS AT..TO EASE MY DEPRESSION AND WORSHIP WITH HEALTHIER PEOPLE.

  6. Hello Samantha,

    I was hoping to share your experience to my school and peers. I am creating a club called RISE that will focus on sexual assault on campus. I attend a private Christian university, and I am totally blown away at how our crime stats show that students are not reporting this issue. I hope that in creating this club, and raising awareness about this to my campus will encourage students to hopefully reduce the potential of violence against women on campus, improve gender relationships, and change the perspectives and mindsets of my school community. I first wanted to double check with you if it was alright if I gave out your name and your experience. I was able to read the article written about your experience on vice, but I felt the need to confirm with you first. Also, I know it may seem too weird if I asked for a picture, but I really wish to tell a story and provide proof to students that events like this DO happen on faith-based institutions. I’m not sure if you will be able to write back to me soon, but I hope we can speak more about possibly using you as an example to influence others around my area.

  7. Also thank you for your courage. I know that your story definitely moved me towards taking action at my campus and creating preventative methods on this issue.
