Bishop bullied off

I believe John Piper said: ‘Emotional blackmail says, “If I feel hurt by you, you are guilty.” There is no defence. The hurt person has become God. His emotion has become judge and jury. Truth does not matter. All that matters is the sovereign suffering of the aggrieved. It is above question. This emotional device is a great evil.’

Susie Leafe, Director of Reform

I presume that we are all guilty of such thinking at times. It is too easy to allow our emotions to be the arbiter of the truth about our relationships, and when this happens chaos ensues. It can happen in families, amongst friends and even in churches.
