Re: How do you leave without making a scene?

I mean this with love. You’re going to have grow a backbone. You don’t owe them answers. You can still be kind and exercise boundaries. No matter what, people will realize you’ve left and they will...

Re: Daughter wants to leave for FTTA

This is excellent advice. Very in line with what cult experts advise. That being said, it should be noted that this is HARD to do initially. But, you CAN actually make a plan that’s similar to these...

Re: Daughter wants to leave for FTTA

I’m so sorry! I grew up in this group. I’ve learned so much in the last few years and my best advice is read the book, “Combating Cult Mind Control” (the re-released edition) by Steve Hassan and...

Re: Deceptions on Campus

In my locality- I would definitely presume a quarter at least- possibly a third. Definitely less than half. CA you’ll probably get the most Asian heritage.

Re: Deceptions on Campus

I don’t know- I feel like actively “checking out” of one duty Jesus calls us to do doesn’t make sense. I’m not saying to do it in a legalistic way- but if you have the means to help, we should “check...

Re: Deceptions on Campus

These are all just excuses to disobey the word of God. Have mercy on us, God.

Re: Deceptions on Campus

That’s all- promise. Sorry for temporarily monopolizing your thread. I resigned myself to just let it all out then- and not respond again;)

Re: Deceptions on Campus

I know, thank you. I couldn't help myself- still in the healing process and realizing how much that LSM junk has affected me. I think it's somewhat validating to type out my new found mentality- I'm...

Re: Deceptions on Campus

In an effort to make this shorter, I'm just responding to new points.

You originally argued a point that CoC was justified in being called that bc the local church didn't have a "name" per say-...

Re: Clearing up something about the Midwest Quarantine...

I know where you can get the LC’s version of events! Although I’m pretty sure this wouldn’t be your first choice or source-ha!

Re: Brainwashing

I always heard how great it was to “waste your life on the Lord!” Especially to “waste your younger years on the Lord- how sweet!” Of course, that means signing your life over to local church elders...

Re: Deceptions on Campus

Ok, I have more time and feel you need to see a different perspective (if possible).

In response to your first paragraph, you're ignoring the fact that the government recognizes the LC as having a...

Re: Deceptions on Campus

Too much bad press with the Lord’s Recovery so they choose the sneaky option.

Re: Deceptions on Campus

I don't see this as a matter of what groups are a denomination or not! How is that an issue related this topic?

Re: Deceptions on Campus

I didn't say it shouldn't be run by church members and your point that it's biblical to be run by church members doesn't apply at all. The issue we were discussing was the name being CoC instead of...
