"Explains how to recognize abusive authority in homes, churches, and relationships, providing steps for deliverance and healing from the scars of abuse"--Provided by publisher.Publishers Description
Church was never meant to hurt so much. The wounded and weak have been preyed upon. Hurting souls have been frightened into submission by leaders who use people to improve their own self-esteem and advance their careers. Tragically, this has all happened within the church where salvation, healing, freedom, and love should abound.

|Bloomer Sets Free the Spiritual Abused and the Spiritual Abuser Oct 8, 2005|
|Are you sure you are under Godly authority? Is your home Godly or does an authority abuser, possibly your pastor or church, govern it? Are you even sure if your giving - your tithes and your offerings - is ordained by God, or used abusively? Do you recognize pastoral parasites when you see them?|
George Bloomer holds a Doctor of Religious Arts in Christian Psychology and exposes one of the least exposed abuses in our society: Spiritual Abuse. Expertly, Bloomer takes the reader inside the church, an assumed place of salvation, healing, freedom, and love, that has become a haven (not a heaven) to prey on the wounded and the weak.
AUTHORITY ABUSERS: Breaking Free from Spiritual Abuse is written with Godly wisdom. Bishop Bloomer shares practical insights that evidence spiritual implications. Incontrovertibly, "Godly authority is protective, loving, honest, and-above all-liberating," and "Jesus Himself never violated God's order of human authority." Anything else is abuse.
This exceptionally well-organized, easily read and understood 158-page book that includes 19 pages to review and discuss each chapter, with space provided for journaling, aids the reader who is under the intoxication of spiritual abuse to break free. Bloomer identifies abuse, the abusers, and means for restoration. He offers and supports with valid and appropriate scripture authority abuse and abusers, yet how to reconcile these spiritually dangerous offenders.
Every ministry would do itself well to read Bloomer's revelatory book and break free from any spiritual abuse.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

|Worth reading but avoid the given cure at the end Mar 18, 2005|
|This is a thoughtful book which is worth reading. I do have|
one point of disagreement which I think is important. Despite
a good stand against abusive authoritarian leadership in church
life, the author still maintains at the end of his book, that
submitting to human leadership in the church is the only answer
to heal abusive experiences with church leaders. It's kind of
like recommending the sickness for the cure. I'm sure it's
well intended, but submitting to human leadership is not a
Biblical cure and is actually the crux of the false teaching which is allowing and spreading abuse as if it is Biblical.
It should be made clear that submission is ALWAYS voluntary and
that we submit to people ONLY insofar as they are following
Christ, not because they have some type of title. I was very
disappointed in the ending but the rest of the book is
|Anyone Can Be Deceived Mar 12, 2004|
|If you have ever been in a church atmosphere where you feel as though things just do not seem to line up with the Word of God but for some reason you just can't seem to understand why you stay in that environment. . .my friend, I encourage you to get this book because it will help you begin a spiritual and emotional healing if you have been a victim of spiritual abuse. |
By the grace of God I recently escaped a church that had an atmosphere that was cascading into a cult-like organization through its teachings where the pastor and his elect could do no wrong while everyone else were constantly wrongly being rebuked and rebuked and rebuked. I have bought 10 copies of this book so far for friends who are still caught up in the false teaching of a spiritual abuser. I thank God for George Bloomer who had the insight, wisdom, and courage to write this book!
|Really good book from a pastors' veiw Dec 18, 2003|
|This is a great book to help reseach out spiritual abuse in churches and pin-point things that may be just "not right " feeling. He obviously understands and even gives insight into something that happened in his ministry when he left on a trip. Very candid and Honest.|
|Recognizing Abuse Aug 12, 2002|
|Bishop Bloomer has a gift for recognizing the motives and machinations authority abusers use. He has organized the book so it's easy to read, easy to recognize the abusers in your life and church, and easy to apply its principles. In our efforts to be Christlike and "turn the other cheek," we too often allow authority abusers free rein in our lives. This book should be required reading for every Christian!|
