I and two others were given a week to stand up and repent before the whole assembly, or be excommunicated. I felt I had nothing to repent of.

A week goes by and the elders show up at my door. They had my wife leave, sat around me, and told me what I had to do to remain the LC.

But it was a demand that was so far out there that it was impossible for me to do.

I left. Thank God. And I would love to shake the hand of that elder that made it impossible for me to stay in the church.
