I’m just asking.
From the book:
“What value is all of this to the Body of Christ? What are the takeaways that can promote healing and prevent others from getting wrapped up in another potentially explosive church situation?
The Church cannot escape having to deal with sexual abuse threats. It can, however, do everything within its power to prevent predators from sneaking into the body. Some say the church is the safest place for children, but my research shows me that is not true. I believe God’s people can make a difference by taking a stand for truth and by being the church that Christ leads. Can we take a stand for victims? Can set aside the fear of a tarnished church image and work together? Can we bolster the security of our youth with training for the keepers of the gates and the teachers? Can we allow questioning of pastors, elders, and policies? Can we demand transparency from our leaders? Can we be watchful and not allow ourselves to vote for something simply because the elders say we should trust them?” (Taylor, Joy S., A View from the Pews – The Inside Story of a Broken Church, 2022, Lily of the Valley Publishing, Santa Claus IN, p. 163.)
