When we hear the word ‘abuse’, we usually think of a person who is being subjected to physical harm when in fact, there are many, many forms of abuse – some of which may be self-inflicted. Anyone can be abused, and anyone can be an abuser. Some people may not even realize they are being abused or that they are the ones doing the abusing. It has become a way of life for them – it’s all they know. Abuse is prevalent in families and marriages, but it can happen outside this realm as well.
A person does not have to be related to you to be an abuser. Teachers, preachers, employers, friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, and even best friends can all be abusers.
We are here to tell you that abuse, in any form, is not acceptable, that you don’t have to tolerate it and that you don’t have to suffer in silence any longer. We are here to help. First, we would like to outline some common forms of abuse so that you can recognize them.
- Verbal abuse – includes name-calling, shouting, constantly interrupting, telling other people you are crazy, blaming you for the abuse, etc.
- Emotional abuse – includes threats, isolation, manipulation, insults, and destruction of property, public humiliation, accusations of affairs, threats of suicide, self-injury, or homicide if you leave, threats, insults, constant monitoring, humiliation, intimidation or isolation.
- Financial abuse – included controlling all income, not letting you work or keep a job, making you ask for money, giving an allowance, taking your money, or running up.
- Sexual abuse – can include forced or coerced sex with your partner, another person, or an object.
- Physical abuse – includes any forceful behaviour such as hitting, choking, slapping, using weapons, driving recklessly, holding you down, and preventing you from leaving.
- Spiritual abuse – can occur when a leader uses his or her spiritual position to influence or dictate to another person. Most often it involves overruling the feelings and thoughts of another, without any respect for the outcome in the other person’s state of living, emotions.
- Spiritual attack – includes casting spells, curses, psychic attacks on a person and other forms of demonic acts.
- Digital abuse – new technologies such as social networking, texting are now widely used to bully, harass, stalk or intimidate a partner which is mostly in the form of verbal or emotional abuse.
- Bullying – is when someone or a group of people with more influence continually and purposefully causes hurt or harm to another person or group of people who feel powerless to respond.
- Stalking – is the process of being repeatedly watched, followed or harassed by someone or a group of people.
There are other types of abuse that are self-inflicted. Sometimes these are referred to as addictions. Even though addictions seem to be self-inflicted and benign to anyone other than the addicted person, this is rarely the case. Addiction creates a ripple effect much like tossing a pebble into a pond. It starts small at the point of impact, but the effects reach far and wide.
Some examples of other types of abuse and addictions are:
- Illegal drug abuse
- Prescription drug abuse
- Alcohol abuse
- Internet addiction
- Pornography addiction
- Work addiction
- Video game addiction
If left unchecked, all these things can destroy not only the person who is abusing or addicted but also their children, their spouses, their friends, and entire families.
If you or someone you love is being abused or is participating in the abusing, you need to stop the cycle now. The longer it is allowed to continue, the more damage it can do. You may feel powerless to stop your abuser or the abusing but through our Scripture-based counselling and prayer, we can help you take the power back and get to a place of happiness and harmony in your life. Contact our office today so that we can discuss your counselling options with you and give you the tools you need to get your life back on the right track.

The daily prayers, spiritual guidance from Dr Utah has made a huge impact in my life. It has made me rethink the course of my life. It has caused me to think about what is important in this world and to begin a journey of spiritual renewal with the COA. COA AFRICA will change the way people think about the ways of COA.Nancy
It is important for me to use whatever prayer points or advice given to bring solutions to any difficulties or challenges in life. It’s not enough to just read the scripture or prayer points, but the prayer must turn into a solution. It must be used as an application to everyday needs. The expectation is for a positive result or solution after the prayer. This is what COA AFRICA does.Femi
