Would you simply listen to her testimony and then give her counsel and emotional support to proceed with her actions?
Would you seek to investigate the truth of the matter?
Or would you simply listen to the accusations of this distraught woman alone, cheer her on, or perhaps just look the other way?
I would imagine that the type of woman would had pre-selected these Churchians with various statements about her unhappiness with her husband prior to get a gauge on their general reactions. She wants emotional support, and not someone to tell her she is being wicked and foolish.
She will discuss much about her "feelings" and how her husband makes her feel:
"I feel demeaned."
"I feel scared."
"I feel he doesn't respect my opinion."
"Has he hit you?"
"Not really, but I feel physically threatened by him."
"Can I talk to him to see if we can find a solution?"
"No. I'd rather not, because I'm scared he will hurt me."
"OK. Well, based on your emotional state, I believe you and it must be true. I will help and support you."
And just like that, Matthew 18:15-17 is completely thrown out.
15 “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. 17 If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.Instead, this verse is replaced with, "Believe All Women." Once she is labelled an "abuse victim," the "Domestic Violence Handbook" supersedes the Bible's commands, and you get some additional inversions:
The worst thing an abuse victim fears is not being believed.
Emotional abuse is worse than physical abuse because at least bruises heal, but the emotional ones don't.I imagine a Churchian feels more fear out of being accused as being an "abuse apologist" more than a "racist" (especially if they have therapist credentials) so they'll just go along and white-knight the best they can, Logos be damned.
How would you react if the wronged husband then contacted you about your support and your cowardliness to confront his ex-wife's wickedness and foolishness?
Just double down and declare he's the abuser and deserves what he gets. Declare that he should focus on his own sins of being an abuser before he points out the ones of his ex-wife.
Churchians are going to cuck. They serve the God of this world. They do not serve the God of the Bible. They've worshiped the altar of inclusion and equality their entire Christian lives.
This is their moment to FINALLY be able to serve the God of this world, and feel like they made the world a better place by doing so. They SAVED a woman from her abuser!
After all, the Churchians' wives are watching too. They wouldn't want to act or suggest actions in a way that might offend and cause trouble with their own rebellious wives.
