Spiritual Rape

Spiritual rape is a concept relating the sexual crime of rape to the spiritual crime of taking advantage of the intimating life of a soul for another person's pleasure. Here are some of my opinions on the idea.

Spiritual Rape versus Consensual Spiritual Intimacy

Intimacy within the bonds of marriage is acceptable, normal, healthy and good. This is the normal good part of a healthy relationship and is the basis on which sinful actions are judged.

Rape involves two or more people without the consent of the person being raped. You have the victim and the aggressor. Also with rape, you have privacy being violated. The privacy of a persons body. And also the violations of the privacy of the emotions that go along with intimacy. And also you have the inner feelings and memories of the person being raped that endure for ages. This is the long-term wounding that is similar to child sexual abuse by OVERSEERS and WORKERS.

I would like to compare spiritual rape to normal spiritual intimacy. And I think that to do this, I have to start off with describing the parts of spiritual intimacy. And for this, there are two prominent characters of the Bible that come to mind. There is the relationship between Jesus Christ and the apostle John. And the first example that came to mind (because it comes before this in the Bible) is the relationship between David, the king of Israel and Jonathan - the son of Saul.

Healthy Spiritual Intimacy

The relationship between David and Johnathan has no hint of physical elements of homosexuality. And for this reason, I believe it is a great example of spiritual intimacy that is not entangled with physical intimacy (in a sexual way, I mean). I'm not prepared to write out all about the story of David and Jonathan's relationship, and so I will just reference it if you want to look it up in the Bible. It's found in I Samuel and you may want to start at chapter 13 to read about the dynamics of the relationship between Saul and Jonathan first.

A few key verses that have taught me much about this:

1Sa_18:1 And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.
1Sa_20:17 And Jonathan caused David to swear again, because he loved him: for he loved him as he loved his own soul.
2Sa_1:23 Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided: they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.

Now there is much more that I have to write and share about this subject, but the emotion is too much right now when I think of how I was violated by the lies of what I will call these OLDER BROTHERS, OVERSEERS and WORKERS that are like spiritual rapists.

Previous writings

While two people may choose to have sex within the bonds of marriage, each having consented through marriage, rape is taking an otherwise consensual act and making it unilateral for the pleasure/desire of one person at the expense of someone else to their disadvantage and damage. Some enjoyable fun that some woman started having with a boyfriend has turned into rape later as things progressed further than they had planned. This is how I think of my time with the 2x2s. I believe they took advantage of me for their own pleasure when I was in a weakened situation that was created by them.

Physical rape happens when one person overpowers the other. I believe that spiritually one person can overpower and force another person with their lies and deceptions to cause them to weaken and allow the worker to take advantage of them. A person can be spiritually overpowered

  1. in their mind ((not able to think through their thought-stopping phrases)
  2. not able to handle the emotional manipulation of the other person
  3. take advantage of a person's willingness to forget when lust is involved
  4. physically isolated from family (take a trip away from home)
  5. brainwashed for hours (conventions),
  6. emotionally taken advantage of (create situations that create problems between them and their families and then play the part of the compassionate consoler - never mind the fact that they created the dilemma in the first place).
  7. socially overpowered (so many cult members being nice and giving them so much attention - how can they turn down an invitation to supper, dessert and a later meeting when they are tired and not able to think straight?)

Rapes happen in private, in isolation of those who would otherwise rush to their aid.. Never heard of a public rape. Rapists try to get their victim alone, or will try to find them at a time when they are alone. In spiritual rape, the goal is to separate the victim from their support group: father, mother, siblings and close friends. If you're a victim of spiritual rape, you will find yourself separate by your attacker from the very friends who are best able help you. The spiritual rapist knows you need support and can overpower you by yourself, your lonesome.

Rapists can encourage their victim to get alone through their pride. They may tell them "You're a big girl, you can make your decision on your own. Why don't we go out alone." and "You're old enough, you don't need to call your mom to let her know where you are going." I am sure that by appealing to a woman's pride, many rapists have gotten their victim alone.

Flattery is used to alter people's better judgment. A rapist could tell a woman, "You are so beautiful." and use this flattery to make a woman want to please them. In the same way, a spiritual rapist can give a lot of attention to their victim to buy them into a "friendship" where they can take advantage of them later: take advantage of their ignorance in the scripture, take advantage of their errors in judgment etc. I know of several of the 2x2 friends who have commented on a woman's beauty to encourage them to come to meetings.

Pro_26:28 A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

More later...this is a very interesting topic and requires more thought.
