God wants you to exercise faith. If you see something wrong with the current set-up, and the Shepherd is calling you, then follow the voice. Everything else will be added. It's called faith. Just do it.

You may lose good and valuable stuff on the way. Just make sure, really really sure, that the Shepherd is calling you. Then go.

I had a great time in the LC. I didn't get abused. I never knew about Daystar or Philip Lee. But the voice called me and I left. I was a hard-core, committed-for-life LC'er. Sure, there was stuff wrong, but so what. There's wrong stuff everywhere. I was "wrecked" for the LC church.

But the voice called and I left.
Same here. I even miss some of my LC brethren... but fellowshipping with them outside the LC frame would be very, very difficult. I would not fit in. And I would probably suffocate.
