Is Teaching Boundaries Victim Blaming? [Episode 264]

Doesn't the Bible Say to Remove the Log From Your Own Eye?

Doesn’t the Bible Say to Remove the Log From Your Own Eye? [Episode 260]

Have you ever been told to, “first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will be able to see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye” in regards to your emotionally abusive marriage? That passage of the Bible is often used to mutualize the sin of the abuser and his victim. This is called sin-leveling, and it’s a form of spiritual abuse.

Karen McMahon is here to show us how to take back the meaning of these verses to empower and strengthen ourselves.
