With all my friends in the LC, I still feel lonely because I cannot express my concerns regarding the teachings and leadership of the LC's. If you cannot speak the truth with friends, how much are they really your friends? Yet they are my friends. We are close in so many other ways, but not this (regarding the LC). And this is not because they have changed, but I have changed. See my dilemma? Feels uncomfortable to be in this state of mind.
I encourage you to seek other friends, especially Christian friends. Perhaps some one in your life has the wisdom to counsel you with his friendship. Not every friend can be every thing you need. The body of Christ is far bigger than the LC's would have you believe. The exclusive teachings in the LRC instruct us to make "Christ and the church" our whole life. This is wrong. It is far better to have a wide diversity of healthy friends, both in and out of the LC. Please take it from me -- when it comes to personal and family counseling, the LRC fails dismally.
