The Coffee & Christ Show Featuring Special Guest David Bannister – Raped, Distorted & Delivered

Original Air Date: December 16, 2013

When a person forces their will upon you without your full compliance, that is a form of rape; it doesn’t have to include brute force or a fight/struggle. When you tell someone “no”, tell them you’re uncomfortable with something, or that you would rather not, and they continue to force themselves upon you – your sense of safety & normality gets distorted. This distortion confuses your sense of reality & travels into your future. This episode of the Coffee & Christ show will share with you one man’s journey of deliverance from the effects of rape, at an early age. Don’t miss “Raped, Distorted & Delivered” with Dave Bannister.
