||God Bless You and protect you. May God's peace reign in your heart. I am certain your speaking out will give the courage to others to do the same and protect others from enduring the same terrible abuse. Thank you. You are a true soldier for Christ.
||I am so sorry for all you have suffered. Thank you for your testimony and forgiving your abuser. I can't forgive him for things he did you, because he was so cruel: he treated you as if you were a thing, not as a sensitive human being.... But I am grateful you were able to forgive him. God bless you!
||Sorry about what you suffered. He preyed upon your beauty as a young man simply because he was obviously very shallow, not minding things of the spirit nor his obligation toward saving souls. In other words, he used you; this was not love. This was pure barbarism. The sexual revolution had him.
