Emotional blackmail in the church
Emotional blackmail says, ‘If I feel hurt by you, you are guilty.’ There is no defense. 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.
This is what I have experienced from modern evangelicals, many of whom are ardent, vehement haters of Way of the Master, and accuse those who use it of being ungentle per se for using it; and who impose rules of forming friendships with the unsaved before evangelising to them.
