Well said Derek,

My daughter was bullied unrelentingly in our public high school to the point the city police had to come in and deter the bullies from their ultimate agenda, which was the demise of my daughter.

I had to pull her from the situation and get her plugged into another school setting. She did her senior presentation on bullying and called upon the school principals and counselors to become more proactive in stopping bullying and in supporting the victims.

Some schools have these programs in place but unfortunately they often are not enough, do not reach their intended audience, or are not enforced. As you said, it is devastating to the victims and allows the bullies to move on with their agenda.

The main bully, in my daughter’s case, is seeking now, four years later, to get her teaching degree. I do not believe she has changed. So now, in this case, we have the bully, in a greater position of power, potentially furthering her agenda with a captive population of new victims.

Kids want to know where God is in these difficult circumstances. We preach that He has not moved and is right here, but that often times rings hollow in the face of bullying. Yet, God is near and later they often times see that God never did move.

We need to pray for these victims and their antagonists and for the administrators at schools as they all struggle with this seemingly unabating problem of bullying.

Blessings upon you Derek,

Hey Doc!

Thank you for your transparency in letting me hear about your own daughter. I’m so sorry she had to go through this painful experience. I know in my own experience where I was bullied that I have become stronger as an adult and I am a HUGE supporter of the underdog. I will always fight for the underdog, in this case the victims being bullied. You are right we need to pray for everyone involved in this crazy ordeal. The great thing about God is that He always listens to us when we pray, and that is so comforting, even if the circumstances don’t change, God will always be there! Thank you again for your story. God bless you!

I have been serverly bullied by my superiors at my job and one in particular. To the point where I have been separated from them. I know the Lord will bring justice to this situation. In the meantime it has meant accepting the changes that God has brought to my husband and I. As they continue to work and collect paychecks…I rejoice in God’s mercy that He moved me away from them.

I was once bullied at my work. Then I appealed to my rights as a citizen of God’s kingdom and the One seated to His right, our precious King. I did not reported the bully officially. But with an open and sincere heart, not to mention pain, I came before God, expressing that the rights of one of His children had been broken. He responded…three months later, my bully got laid off. “Then your Father that sees you in secret will reward you in public.” Matthew 6:4.

Hi Derek,

I found your website named https://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/what-does-the-bible-say-about-bullying/ that greatly motivated me because of your excellent diagram. I like your idea and style for two different sides of the Bullying and Christian’s hearts. I politely need to ask for your permission or authority to allow me to take or use your diagram to minister to my deaf Christians in my Bible Study or presentation that can be both as well. You are earned your credit that I have requested your authority to let me use that. Let me know for your permission that I am waiting. I am working on my new website project that started last week. You can email both of email address below that I filled out. Many Thanks! I appreciate your website being shown spiritually! God Bless You!

Hello Mrs. Saulsberry. I think that’s fine since it’s not going to be on the Internet. Thank you for asking permission to use the chart. What a great idea and what a special ministry you have, and may God richly bless you for that Mrs. Saulsberry.
