Spiritual Abuse

They tie up heavy loads, and lay them on mens shoulders; but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger.
(Matt. 23:4).

People who have had some involvement with the Palmarian Church have equated their experiences to spiritual abuse. What is spiritual abuse ? one definition is as follows.

Spiritual abuse occurs when someone in a position of spiritual authority, the purpose of which is to 'come underneath' and serve, build, equip and make God's people MORE free, misuses that authority placing themselves over God's people to control, coerce or manipulate them for seemingly Godly purposes which are really their own.
