Just What Do We Mean by ABUSE Anyway?

of discomfort from there on out. EMOTIONAL ABUSE IS DIFFICULT TO DETECT The most difficult type of abuse to identify is emotional or psychological in nature. It is very subtle and difficult to recognize because so much of it is a non-behavior, such as giving someonerepparttar cold shoulder orrepparttar 148054 silent treatment, or simply not being present. The fact that a parent may be doing something legitimate like working and not just hanging out in some bar does nothing to alterrepparttar 148055 fact thatrepparttar 148056 child is deprived of his parent’s company, guidance and affection. A parent can be physically present but emotionally unavailable. Some parents may have too many responsibilities and not enough time or energy for their children. Others are simply ill-equipped to offer proper nurturance or psychological support. The term emotional orphan comes to mind. Another thing that makes emotional abuse hard to pinpoint is repparttar 148057 fact thatrepparttar 148058 victim is not outwardly mangled. Emotionally abusive behaviors include: • yelling • belittling, criticizing • blocking, stifling • too demanding of perfection • domineering, controlling • name-calling, ridiculing, mocking • not taking interest, ignoring • not showing affection or physical contact • constant complaining about providing necessities • general absence or unavailability. Threats of abandonment or withdrawal of love are very frightening and a very cruel form of discipline. Other forms of psychological abuse are over-protection, adulation and overly doting behaviors. And then there is over-reliance on a child, referred to as emotional incest, whererepparttar 148059 child is used to fulfill a void left by an absent partner. All of these behaviors distort healthy development and growth. Muddled boundaries make it difficult to form and sustain healthy human relationships later in life. Now, using these parameters, it’s safe to say thatrepparttar 148060 vast majority of people have been abused to one degree or another. Unfortunately, these types of behavior are far too common and many of us have been affected more deeply than we care to admit. However, until we acknowledgerepparttar 148061 truth of our personal history, we will continue to expend tremendous amounts of psychic energy trying to squelchrepparttar 148062 pain of these subconscious wounds. Inrepparttar 148063 meantime, it is my hope that a greater understanding of how much long-term damage these behaviors cause might prevent us from perpetuating such mistreatment. With a bit of attention and intention,repparttar 148064 abuse can stop here.

  The problem was created byrepparttar Devil himself—The Cabaret Society ofrepparttar 146725 Weimar Republic (They never represented true Germany!). "We'd been maligned by every creeping thing imaginable upon our streets: Socialists, Communists, radical Unionists, Jews, Secularists, Liberal Theologians, Homosexuals, Raunchy Entertainment, ad nausea—and this upon our wretched economic woes and that ‘Paper from Hell’ (i.e.,repparttar 146726 Versailles Treaty)."   Now—the Devil would providerepparttar 146727 solution torepparttar 146728 aforementioned problem. He would providerepparttar 146729 solution through a man, a party, that would reach down torepparttar 146730 common man and pull upon his heart strings—upon that which is made to respond torepparttar 146731 highest ideals of man: His religious conscience would berepparttar 146732 springboard to launch a fully consecrated and absolutely committed people, sold out torepparttar 146733 one who could uplift and empower them. Thence, this resolution to Germany's defeat must be ensconced withinrepparttar 146734 language of power and persuasion—it must carryrepparttar 146735 fervor ofrepparttar 146736 EVANGELIST,repparttar 146737 power ofrepparttar 146738 PROPHET,repparttar 146739 message ofrepparttar 146740 APOSTLE! Yes, convoluted—but done with such passionate skill, thatrepparttar 146741 unwitting and desperate would believerepparttar 146742 LIE. Indeed, a true LIE is so close to reality that its frightening resemblance obscures all semblances torepparttar 146743 truth!   Ultimately, a lie told long enough, and amplified torepparttar 146744 uttermost, resounds with familiarity—YE SHALL BE AS GODS, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL! This original deceit confounded our original forebears. This is no ordinary lie—it is THE LIE. Godhood,repparttar 146745 ultimate UBERMENSCH, isrepparttar 146746 final destiny ofrepparttar 146747 German race—of Hitler's "Religion." But first,repparttar 146748 people must be prepared, until they realize their supreme destination and status as DAS VOLK!   HITLER—I CAN'T BELIEVE HE SAID IT! (Hitler/Nazi Comments in quotes)   "We demand liberty for all religious denominations inrepparttar 146749 State, so far as they are not a danger to it and do not militate againstrepparttar 146750 morality and moral sense ofrepparttar 146751 German race. The Party, as such, stands for positive Christianity, but does not bind itself inrepparttar 146752 matter of creed to any particular confession." (Item #24 ofrepparttar 146753 German Worker's Party "Program" cir. 1920s)   Atrepparttar 146754 earliest formation ofrepparttar 146755 Nazi Party, Hitler expressed his Christian support torepparttar 146756 German people and soldiers. Inrepparttar 146757 1920s, Hitler's German Workers' Party (pre Nazi terminology) adopted a twenty-five-point program withrepparttar 146758 clear intent to persuaderepparttar 146759 German people that "positive Christianity" was in full conformity torepparttar 146760 "moral" convictions ofrepparttar 146761 Party—i.e.,repparttar 146762 Party fully embracedrepparttar 146763 morality of Christianity and that Christianity was viewed as "singular" inrepparttar 146764 minds of that Party—Catholic and Protestants were considered asrepparttar 146765 foundation of German Christianity in its fullness and jurisdiction (the Party embraced both as one).   "MY LORD AND SAVIOR . . . IN THE BOUNDLESS LOVE AS A CHRISTIAN . . . HE HAD TO SHED HIS BLOOD UPON THE CROSS.  My feelings as a Christian point me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me torepparttar 146766 man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them. This is God's truth! He was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read throughrepparttar 146767 passage which tells us howrepparttar 146768 Lord at last rose in His might and seizedrepparttar 146769 scourge to drive out ofrepparttar 146770 Templerepparttar 146771 brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight forrepparttar 146772 world againstrepparttar 146773 Jewish poison. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before inrepparttar 146774 fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood uponrepparttar 146775 Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I haverepparttar 146776 duty to be a fighter for truth and justice....

  "And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it isrepparttar 146777 distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people. 

"When I go out inrepparttar 146778 morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil, if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom today this poor people is plundered and exploited."   [Note, "Brood of vipers" appears in Matt. 3:7 & 12:34. John 2:15 depicts Jesus driving outrepparttar 146779 moneychangers (adders) fromrepparttar 146780 temple.] Adolf Hitler, in his speech on 12 April 1922   “We were convinced thatrepparttar 146781 people needs and requires this faith. We have therefore undertakenrepparttar 146782 fight againstrepparttar 146783 atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out.” --Adolf Hitler, in a speech in Berlin on 24 October 1933   Indeed, Hitler's speeches and proclamations, even more clearly, reveal his faith and feelings toward a Christianized Germany. Nazism presents an embarrassment to Christianity and demonstratesrepparttar 146784 danger of blending "faith with politics." Do you find it "spiritually disconcerting" to discoverrepparttar 146785 depth of Hitler's hermeneutic? How about his exegesis of Matthew 3:7, 12:34 and John 2:15? Hitler's depiction of Jesus asrepparttar 146786 FIGHTER, not asrepparttar 146787 sufferer, is a distortion ofrepparttar 146788 Scriptural intent of this reading; however, without knowingrepparttar 146789 full contextual nature ofrepparttar 146790 Word, one could (as Hitler did) surmise a MILITANT JESUS is in view, and not a suffering Jesus.   It has been said, "the Bible can be read to say anything!" Examples abound: "Judas hung himself . . . go thou and do likewise!" This classic piece of cut and paste, though stupid, is precisely what many so-called expositors do withrepparttar 146791 Word of God—Hitler was no exception. But,repparttar 146792 shedding ofrepparttar 146793 blood of Jesus asrepparttar 146794 ultimate payment for "truth and justice andrepparttar 146795 German way" is frightening and turns true Christianity on its head! Note that Hitler claims to be a Christian and, as such, he has a duty to his own people—he too, like Jesus, must be a fighter for truth and justice—he must ridrepparttar 146796 Temple ofrepparttar 146797 moneychangers, ofrepparttar 146798 abominable Jews who harass his people, like Jesus did. The German people, according to Hitler, were being "plundered and exploited" and he would be NO CHRISTIAN if he didn't do something about it.....
