    The scars of breaking free

    The scars of breaking free are real, and I still have them. And I left the cult over 30 years ago. I have come to accept that the scars will be with me for life.

    Point of no return

    So, in the church of the cookie monster, do you put cookies in the collection plate? Or do you give money so he can buy the cookies that he wants?

    50+ Healing Scriptures For Cancer Patients

    My Dad died of cancer...and he prayed to jebus until the very last second of his life. "Healing scriptures" are bullshit. May as well watch hardcore porn.

    Point of no return

    Deconversion is certainly an uncomfortable process for many people. But, like you said, once you complete the process, it's difficult to even imagine going back.

    2018 4th Hottest on record, Hottest for NZ

    Here in my part of Canada the annual temperature curve seems to have "flattened" a little...that is, the winters don't seem as cold as they used to be but the summers don't seem as hot either. *throws snowball at LogicalFallacy*

    My Story

    Mrspearl, your story is inspiring. One thing I have seen that many of us here have in common is that, in some form or other, religion stole a significant part of our lives. In my case, like yours and so many others, it was my childhood. I'm so glad you made it out. Welcome to freedom.

    Religion, and what it did

    Everything in your post applies to me as well, but I'd like to add one thing, if you don't mind... Religion stole my childhood.

    God doesn’t get credit for morals

    Typical christian...taking a statement that is simple, straightforward and to-the-point and applying some twisted form of logic to it to form the wrong conclusion. BTW..."eternal, unerring word" was in quotes to show sarcasm. Maybe we need a sarcasm emoji...
