Should Churches Handle Sexual Abuse Allegations Internally?
We’re all familiar with our tendency to evaluate our own moral failings more leniently than the moral failings of others. When someone else does something wrong, we condemn; when we do something wrong, we rationalize.

The problem is, this bias doesn’t stop at ourselves.

Research shows that we also extend this favored treatment to members of our in-group and to those close to us. We judge our friends more positively than other people judge them, and we are likelier to excuse unfair behavior by an in-group member than we are to excuse the same behavior committed by someone outside the group. Given that church leaders are often personally close, this calls into question their ability to be impartial when judging one of their own. ...

what a wasteful post! phony bologna psychology.

now the guy had raped a teenager when he was a youth leader.

then the pastor gave a speech about how far this guy had come in repentance.

this is just the wolves protecting the wolves.

is pontificating really necessary?

any Godly pastor is not going to put up with a collegue who has been outed that he raped as a youth leader!!

instead of doing PC pieces about how everyone feels why not keep CHristians informed about ethical issues ?

Umm no. We are to abide the laws of the country we live in and submit to the government unless it causes us to compromise God's Law of course. In this case, reporting sexual abuse allegation could be handled internally. However if found to be true, it must be handed over to the correct authorities and a trial ensue.
The article made some interesting points and is so true when saying we tend to judge others on a strict line but judge ourselves on a curve. This should not be so, as God judges everyone with a holy, roghteous judgement. One of the benefits of being a part of a local church is that there are other individuals within the body of Christ that can help us kill sin in our lives, sin that so many times we ourselves are blinded to. However, no better does this happen than in marriage! To have one person know the REAL you, what a blessing from God. Sanctifying one another in love.
Rabbit trail 🐰 but a truth nonetheless 👍🏻

Ps58:1
Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?
82:2
How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
1Cor5:"
9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person."

1 Cor6:2"Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?"

--
Jer5:28b
They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause,..
31The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?"
.Fat birds can't fly,die

Christianity Today is not exactly known for its progressive stance on, well, anything. However, I was pleasantly surprised to read Jen Zamzow insist that churches shouldn’t handle cases of sexual abuse “internally”; that is, have the offending staff member sent on sabbatical without ever notifying the police, as was the case with pastor Andy Savage who assaulted a teenage girl decades ago (but whose story went public only recently). Savage’s church, as we know, is far from the only one to do this, and the practice not only further traumatizes victims but puts other congregants in danger.

Zamzow rightly points out that while it’s easy to assume the worst of strangers, many of us are hesitant to do so of people in our inner circles. And this is something more Christians need to come to terms with.

Of course read the Christianity Today article also
