Last night I was browsing around YouTube (like usual), when I came across this clip from John Piper:
There's one thing Piper forgot to mention: RUN!
Yes, telling the church elders is good, but I think if a women is really concerned about the safety of her and her children, the #1 thing to do is to get away from her abusive husband, not wait until the church elders talk to him. Call me a heretic, but I feel that once a man puts his hands on a woman, he has violated his role as leader of the household, therefore he's no longer fit to be a husband.
Am I wrong?
