Who or What is a “Broken” Christian?
“Can past abuse still harm you after you’ve become a Christian? Anger, anxiety, addictions…these are partial symptoms broken Christians may still suffer from abuse that has not been resolved correctly. Fortunately, you can lose the pain of the past and find peace that lasts.” – Don Mondell
Broken? Christian. Those two words seem like opposites. Aren’t Christians people who get their lives fixed?
If you are a broken Christian you probably attend church, pray and sometimes read your Bible. Yet — something is wrong inside you, and — you know it.
You may experience ongoing battles with…
- neck aches
- low self-esteem
- impaired concentration
- debilitating stress
- nocturnal tendencies
But you don’t know why.
You may struggle with or be addicted to…
- illegal street drugs
- prescription medications (often opioids)
- screens (tv, phone, video games, social media)
- shopping & spending
- sugar in various forms
But you don’t understand why.
