Power in Numbers

Man! I’m finding out there are more and more people who have questions and doubts about the Bible, God, and the doctrines they once embraced. An acquaintance/friend of mine has begun to share her struggles regarding the cultish practices she was raised on. I told her she had inspired me to be more open about the things I have dealt with. I also mentioned that when people start to come forward, it will help others to do the same. There’s power in numbers. She responded by saying there have been many people who have since contacted her because they now know she is “safe.”

Safe.

What a shame that people in the church feel as if they have no one to talk to. They predict, and rightly so, that any questions they raise will result in chastisement, shame, and spiritual abuse.
