Welcome to the forum GuestM!

This forum has many ex-member testimonies in the Introductions and Testimonies sub-forum.

In another sub-forum are the Writings of Ex-members.

My goal and the goal of other posters is to help ex-members keep their faith and love in the Jesus our Savior. The pain and abuse of the LC experience unfortunately leads many to question our Father's unconditional love for us. Life is tough enough without all the nonsense that all too often happened in the LC community. After I left the LC, I kept a very short reading list -- basically the Gospels, the stories of Jesus life and love for us.
