As surely as the absence of authority produces chaos, the abuse of authority produces destruction. Tragically, it's inside the church--where salvation and love should abound--that some of the worst authority abuse takes place. God's design for authority has been misunderstood, twisted, and manipulated, leaving innocent people as victims and prisoners of controlling, abusive situations. Wake up!
