Powerful systems, powerful pastors and popes tend to increase the occurrence of spiritual abuse. But, what is this abuse? Kevin Swanson defines humanist terms in biblical language, and proceeds to list the ways that pastors give way to sin. . . some personal confessions included. But, in the end - the rule of eldership within churches and between churches is God’s system of accountability. Every pastor should seek it out in humility, despite its obvious inefficiencies.
Homeschooled himself in the 1960's and 70's, Kevin Swanson and his wife, Brenda, are now homeschooling their five children. Since graduating from his homeschool and then serving as student body president of a large west coast university, he has gone on to other leadership positions in corporate management, church, and other non-profits.
