What Would Jesus Say to the Woman Who Has Been Raped?

What Would Jesus Say to the Woman Who Has Been Raped?

We've been talking a lot about rape culture lately on the blog, and we are going to be talking more about it this week and into next week. We've talked about what it is and isn't, ways we unintentionally participate in it, and what not to say to a victim of abuse or rape. 

I realize that this is a difficult topic, and some of you reading this have probably been raped or assaulted, or know someone who has. So I want to share here something I wrote for NewSpring Church's blog because I believe Jesus wants you to know that you are not alone, it's not your fault, you are valuable, and there are communities of believers who will walk through this with you.
