    Yes.

    I'm having trouble deciphering the second question, but I assume that you mean to ask this:: According to your religious beliefs, what is it about sexual abuse that damages you or how does it affect who you know in your spiritual life?

    I would say that it harms your psychological development, which can impact your spirtual life as well. It causes you to either be hypersexual (which is frowned upon by most religions) or afraid to connect with others/trust others. Being afraid to be close to others makes it hard to be part of a religious community. Lack of trust would make it hard to accept the guidance of a religious leader.

    Edit:

    The answer to all of those questions varies according to the individual. Some lose their faith in God after an experience like that. Some become very religious.

    Being molested as a child ,is a loss of innocence that can never be regained! It creates low self esteem, that often leads to self injury, self mutilation, prostitution, and a tendency to grow to, and marry your abuser, in kind!

    Unless you received intense therapy, and counseling as a child, after the abuse, and then confront your abuser, the damage will never end! It is like the facets of a diamond! For every facet, there is a side effect of abuse!

    So If you suspect abuse is going on, or you know of someone who has been abused, get them to therapy, or counseling as soon as possible! And make sure the abuser is turned into the police! Seeing that the abuser is punished is good for the victim!

    My ex girlfriend told me that she got molested and raped by her uncle when she was 10 years old. She said it helped convince her that there was no God, at least not a God that cares about us.

    What do you mean? Like the Prophet Muhammed sexually abusing a little girl? Is that what your question is about?
