Christian churches that exercise unscriptural authority and control over God's people are spiritually abusive. Often there is a charismatic leader who claims special insight into God's purpose and will, and imposes high demands on followers. These legalistic Bible-based groups are cultic in practice,* even though they may appear to hold orthodox Christian beliefs. This site was born in 2002 to expose these problems in the Geftakys Assembly ministry. Since then the site has expanded to cover common aspects of spiritual abuse in many other Christian settings.
