Do you or someone you know suffer from self-injury? There is hope for you.
Wretched Radio | Air Date: September 05, 2022
Self-Harm can feel like a total mystery. The person committing self-harm knows cutting isn’t right.
Mark Shaw talks about self-injurious behavior.
The Bible speaks to this behavior starting with perfection.
When perfection is not attained, they fall short of the standard of themselves.
This is when a self-injurer will begin to behave lie a priest.
A cutter, will take a sharp instrument and use it to draw blood, like a priest offering a sacrifice.
Hebrews 10:4 tells us it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to forgive sins.
Do you know someone afflicted with self-injurious behavior?
Mark Shaw shows how the self-injurer is acting as a priest. But, Jesus did that for you.
Instead of letting the world define self-injury, we must let the Bible inform us.
The world makes these issues clinical. The Bible, however, defines issues differently.
The self-harmer is suffering from a worship disorder.
Our lives are a worship service.
When you’re tempted, will you worship self or are you going to worship the Lord?
Mark Shaw uses biblical language and gives clarity on an issue that causes much confusion.
1. Self-injurers are experiencing normal human emotions. It’s normal to lament.
2. Some self-injurers are true sufferers trying to find meaning.
3. Self-harm is a sin.
4. The self-injurer uses self-harm as a tool.
5. The self-injurer is crying out for attention.
6. The self-injurer believes their problems are external and the solutions are internal but the opposite is really true.
7. The self-injurer is self-loathing but with incorrect motivations.
