    The RZIM article and situation still bothers me.
    After all the stuff we’ve talked about on here, that’s been posted, how can any of us see and do something about red flags? As a congregant, as elders (I’m sure SOME of us serve/have served in leadership in our local churches), as employees, I’m still hopeful someone here can be discerning and make a difference.

    Naive of me to think?

    “the Anabaptists (not to the exclusion of others but especially) are the closest restoration of the New Testament church existing today.”

    Read the “my church is gaslighting me” article, but she never showed how her church was doing anything to her. She’s now an enlightened progressive who can’t understand why all other Christians haven’t jumped onto her bandwagon with her. She’s traded a shallow, cultural Christianity for a shallow, political Christianity, neither of which is attractive to me.

    Eric, It’s possible you don’t understand the meaning of ‘gaslighting’. Gaslighting is a term for a very manipulative technique of control. It often involves several people or more attempting to convince another person that what they know to be true can’t possibly be true. A single, very powerful person can also “gaslight” another person with less power. Denial ( it never happened) and minimization ( it can’t be that bad) are examples of gaslighting. Granted, most of the article seemed to be about the hypocrisy she saw in her church. However, she mentioned a violent sexual assault on a missions trip that was met with the response “What were you wearing?” That’s a classic example of minimizing and/or denying a very serious event. It also was an example of “creating fog” by obscuring the very serious issue by bringing up something else. Ignoring Donald Trump’s confessed sexual assaults on women or maintaining that “it’s no big deal” is also gaslighting, because sexual assault is a crime and that’s a fact.
