Pentecostal Evangel: Articles

"In the life of a child who is being abused, just having one supportive, kind, concerned adult listener makes a big difference," says Nancy Rivas, a Christian counselor with Meier Clinics in Wheaton, Ill.
Rivas says, depending on the situation, someone who suspects abuse is ongoing can do everything from asking the child directly to making an anonymous call to a child protective services office. "When Christians see something suspicious, they should be concerned enough to follow up and not brush it off," says Rivas, who attends Living Water Community Church, an Assemblies of God congregation in Bolingbrook, Ill. "The pornography industry is fueling this to some extent because many people become addicted and feel tempted to act it out," Rivas says. "Just bringing it up and acknowledging that it's there helps make people more comfortable talking about it," Rivas says.
