Does God really expect us to put up with a lifetime of abuse from the bullies, liars, manipulators, abusers and users we know, just because we were born into a toxic family or were deceived into befriending a narcissist who hid his true self from us at first? Christians often feel stuck in abusive relationships with narcissistic or psychopathic friends or family, either haunted by guilt or plagued by Holier-Than-Thous who think they have the right to judge us for finally getting away and staying away. In this book, you will learn about going No Contact from a biblical perspective. You will find effective, step-by-step strategies for deciding when it’s time to go No Contact, how to go No Contact, how to stay No Contact, how to deal with estranged friends and relatives, their Flying Monkeys, and even strangers who have the nerve to criticize you for going No Contact, how to resist attempts to Hoover you back in, and how to begin recovering from the loss of your relationship and healing from your abuse. Loaded with scriptural references that will support you and may even surprise you, The Christian’s Guide to No Contact will teach you that the Lord does not want his children to be in bondage to the wicked, and will help you to end unhealthy friendships and family relationships while staying true to what the Bible teaches. You will find everything a Christian needs to know about No Contact in one enlightening and accessible resource.
Reviews for the Book
I went no contact with my parents about 10 months ago . I had already gone low contact with my evil genius sister about 10 years ago. It's been really hard especially as my parents continue to call and call and call. They think they are saints. After 55 years of neglect and abuse (just me, I'm the scapegoat) they suddenly decided I was the favorite (sort of). Actually, they just stopped being openly hostile to me, the favoritism with other siblings continued. I played along for years, but it was obviously a joke. Or so I thought. Then 10 months ago their true colors showed. They were setting me up to care for my wicked mother when my father dies. I'm the only offspring who works full time and is single. So, of course they see me as the one who is available(?). Actually, I think she picked me as I'm the only one she can continue to abuse till she kills me. It was such a shock that I couldn't face them any more. They had been plotting this for years! Boy, I wish I had found this book a while back. I've been struggling with so much guilt and panic attacks every time they call and leave a message. I finally blocked them on my phone. This book addresses all my concerns and puts such clear perspectives on all the issues. Every time I start a new chapter I'm thinking" yes, yes that too". This book has really helped with my peace of mind. Thank you so much. - LPL
