Emotional Infidelity in the Church Crossing Boundaries in Discipleship

Author Name: Ibidun B. Daramola | Format: Paperback | Genre : Religion & Spirituality | Other Details

What are the signs that your relationship with a disciple or a counselee has crossed boundaries and you are now living in sin? What can be done to avoid or overcome a difficult relationship? How can you safeguard your marriage and home from the problems of emotional infidelity? 

This book, which is meant for ministers and leaders of the Church, attempts to address these questions. The primary aim of the book is to create awareness and address the problem of emotional infidelity in the Church. It is a result of years of counselling and working with families in African and Western communities. 

While the book focusses on common practices within the African setting, the issues discussed cut across communities, for emotional infidelity is a common problem of communities in general. 

The principles and practices of the Church should guard against relationships outside the marriage. Unfortunately, emotional infidelity has found its way into the Church community. This form of sin is easy to hide. It may also appear ‘safe’ because it is not physical. But it is a sin that can destroy marriages and cause friction between couples. Therefore, there is a need to put in place safeguarding measures and policies that would protect Christian homes. 

This is what the book explores in a structured manner, using anecdotes, examples and data.
