Betrayal: Why It’s Necessary
“I have been betrayed.” Everyone has uttered those words at one time or another in life.
Anyone who has been a leader in the Body of Christ for an extended period of time has experienced a major betrayal from someone close to them. The Bible makes it clear that if we follow Christ we will experience rejection and suffering. And we know of the betrayal Jesus Himself experienced.
If there were a binding contract to sign before entering ministry, the fine print would include: "The undersigned acknowledges that the ministry may be hazardous and subject the undersigned to expressions of animosity, including but not limited to calumny, slander, misrepresentation, and betrayal."
Being betrayed is so profoundly painful few can talk about it—yet if they do open up, they can't stop talking about what happened to them.
