How does one know if he or she is in an abusive relationship? What does the bible say about domestic violence and abuse? Marriage and family counselor Geremy Keeton of Focus on the Family gives clear guidelines on the differences between submission and domination, and the fact that violence is not approved of in scripture. He challenges churches to be havens of hope for victims of abuse--both male and female. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. You don't have to suffer in silence. Call (855) 771-HELP or visit focusonthefamily.com/abusiverelationships for more information.
