GRACE (Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment), the sexual abuse investigation team currently investigating allegations of abuse at Bob Jones University, posted an article today on their Facebook page called, “On Being a Female Body in a Christian College”. . The author of this article is Sarah Moon, who is an admitted feminist  and is a member of Jocelyn Zichterman’s anti-Christian and anti fundamentalist group, IFB Cult Survivors.
This is a good reason why Baptists stay separated from the world. At first it may have appeared that GRACE may have been a reasonable step to help investigate claims of abuse, but the more articles I read from their websites the more I question whether or not their is an additional agenda.
In addition to this article, I have also seen articles recommended that totally discredit trained Christian, Biblical counselors and that encourage pastors to help victims seek secular “mental health professionals” on behalf of victims of sexual abuse.  While they make an appealing emotional argument for their case on matters of dealing with victims of sexual abuse, it is not a Biblical one, and it just baffles me that an organization that is supposed to be a GODLY response to abuse in the Christian environment would pass the buck on to “trained professionals”.
I imagine that’s why people hated Jesus and the apostles so much. How dare they “counsel” anyone without an accredited degree in psychiatry from IAMMYOWNGOD University. John 7:15.
Perhaps GRACE staff are unaware of what the person behind their FB page is posting, but it certainly does not reflect the Godly image they proclaim.
UPDATE: March 3, 2013
I did finally get a response from GRACE, but it didn’t really address my concern and was somewhat neutral.
“Consistent with our agreement with BJU, the GRACE Team employs several venues in an attempt to identify and understand a range of perspectives and viewpoints, especially from individuals with complaints or grievances. Third party postings and comments on our Facebook page therefore do not necessarily represent our endorsement of a particular viewpoint or theological perspective.”
My complaint was that the post was generated BY GRACE, not a third party. I also gave them details about the other postings the third party website made that showed support for abortion, homosexual rights, support of anti-Christian websites, and even down to articles that referred to King David as a rapist, and I don’t think that response was very adequate.
I’m quite disappointed in that response and the post is still on their FB page.
I can still view their involvement with BJU or AWBE or any other organizations the way I would view a secular investigative team. However, what was initially encouraging to me when GRACE became involved with these organizations was that I presumed that their work ethics were solidly Christian. That may not be as important to anyone else, but a Christian agency to me should be less likely to have an axe to grind with another Christian institution and skew the results of the investigation. I’m not saying that that will happen, but it does give me cause for concern when they post articles from those who are members of anti-fundamentalist groups who themselves have made it clear that regardless of the outcome of the GRACE investigation into BJU or anyone else, any church or college that deems itself as a fundamentalist institution is a cult, and I would have thought that GRACE would want to distance itself from any such groups to avoid the appearance of partiality and impropriety.
