If someone has the answer to that one, I hope you’ll post a comment. Very few people get the upper hand with a psychopath, as they cover their tracks and spread more lies and engage in their smear campaigns. They play the victim and have a grand pity party. But once in a (rare) while, there is too much evidence about their wrong-doings that their attempts at character assassination of former victims falls on its face.
Jesus taught that an “eye for an eye” was not the right way to live. About this teaching, one commentator wrote:
The plain instruction is, Suffer any injury that can be borne, for the sake of peace, committing your concerns to the Lord’s keeping. And the sum of all is, that Christians must avoid disputing and striving. If any say, Flesh and blood cannot pass by such an affront, let them remember, that flesh and blood shall not inherit the kingdom of God; and those who act upon right principles will have most peace and comfort.
It’s a thorny ethical issue when one deals with a psychopath. Forgiveness doesn’t come easy because one has lost so much and been hurt so badly, so wrongfully. And forgetting is out of the question.
There is one person reading this who can give guidance and answers, and I hope she will respond. In the meantime, I can only ask for prayers and offer this:
