Reasons for trusting Fathers

by anonymous

I was sexually abused by my stepdad last year for a few months and he still occasionally when we are alone gives me gestures I don't like. I told my youth leader, my girl friends from youth and my girls youth mentor/leader. The leader of the girls in my youth told me a few weeks ago that she called a christian helpline and they said there was two options... to tell the police of tell the pastor of the church.

But he is the only one working to provide for this family and he is a well respected man to those in the church and to others he knows.

But when I'm alone with him... I don't know I'm scared to be.

Fear is not from God but from Satan, you have to tell !
by: Keza

This is hard for you I am sure being that you feel like if you tell he will then not take care of the family anymore. I can understand this can be a hard choice to make. Do you not think your mother would not believe you ? And if your Pastor knew about this I would hope and believe that they(the Church) would take care of you and your family until this was all figured out. You can not continue to live like this just because he is well respected does not MEAN you have to accept this and this is why so many people are scared to tell. You can be the voice and after you I am sure there are so many others he has done this too. You have to be strong and let someone know, your mom and if she does not believe you the Pastor.Please do not put up with this because he is respected, he should not be if he doing these types of acts. You just read your Bible and pray and ask God to guide you and give you the courage you need . Trust me God will allow The Holy Spirit to intervene on your behalf and you will be OK....
