Abuse damages a person’s self-esteem, because our mentality shapes our personality, which determines our reality. If we think something—because someone’s told us that we’re worthless and no good—and then we believe that about ourselves, then that’s how we’re going to act. On today’s Treasured Truth, we’ll hear more from Pastor Ford about this important topic and how to deal with the problem of domestic violence, especially in the church.
Pastor James Ford Jr. has been the senior pastor of Christ Bible Church of Chicago, located on the south side of Chicago, Ill., for over 35 years. He also serves as the president of Impact Ministries, an outreach ministry committed to strengthening families in the South Shore community of Chicago.
