Dear sister,

I think it may be harder for you to leave the LSM LC than it was for me because I was the husband and my wife respected my feelings and leadership. But, I know that if she had turned to the so-called elders and asked for advice they would have told her to ignore me and stay faithful to the sect. Fortunately, the living of the elders prevented us from respecting them, so she did not trust their deceptive fellowship. I don't think you will ever convince your husband, but the faithful prayers of a loving wife might cause your husband to really see the deprived condition of the leadership in the LC. I don't know if you have the freedom to find a Christian sister outside of the LC sect that you could pray with, but that would be great. Don't push your husband, but do push the Lord to open the eyes of your husband to the real condition of the LSM LC.
Look to Jesus not The Ministry! Hebrews 12:2.
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
