Liberty for those who have been hurt

From the April 9, 2018 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

In a recent conversation about the media coverage of sexual misconduct, a friend quoted an uplifting verse from the Bible describing the mission of the Christ, or Messiah: “He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives … to set at liberty them that are bruised” ( Luke 4:18 ). The promise is that when we are hurt in any way, mentally or physically, we can be free from any sense of having been separated from the protective love and care of our divine Father-Mother God.
