    Should a woman endure abuse by an unbelieving spouse like a missionary endures persecution? 
    Stunningly, this is the advice offered by Dr. John Street, chair of the graduate program of biblical counseling at John MacArthur’s school — The Master’s University and Seminary (TMUS) — and an elder at Grace Community Church (GCC). 
    Street also suggests that wife’s failure to “fulfill” her husband can cause the husband to sexually abuse his children!

Meanwhile, Caine, who never apologized, continues to enjoy the spotlight.

    Are Black, Hispanic, and other people of color being traumatized in predominantly white, evangelical churches? And if they are, what’s driving it? Racism? Fear? Ignorance? Or, is it something else?
    Joining me for this episode of The Roys Report is Kyle Howard, a racial trauma and spiritual trauma counselor. He’s also become somewhat of a lightning rod for calling out what he sees as white supremacy in the church.
