“Whether your abuser was a friend, a relative, a neighbor, or a stranger, God abhors what that person did to you.  Perhaps you are thinking, ‘If God feels this strongly about sexual abuse, why didn’t He stop my abuser?’ … God didn’t stop your abuser because when He created us, God gave us the gift of free will.  Your abuser chose to use this gift in an evil way.  God is deeply grieved over your abuser’s actions, but because He is true to His word, God will not take back a gift He has given.  BUT, He will heal you and punish your offender.”
