I may not noticed any abuse in the churches I have been involved in. We create churches that are vigilant by prayer, conversation, and making sure nothing is secret. Yes blessed are the whistleblowers for they must be the pure in heart, because of thewhistleblower may suffer because of it.


Great point. It’s crucial that we ask for the help of God and our community to keep (or develop) a pure heart. Otherwise, there is a risk that, in challenging evil, it can allow us to justify mistreating others as they have mistreated us.
