Another wave of anger. I hoped these would go away! The leaked document about tithing in Africa sparked a nerve! Years we sacrificed basic needs (food, medical, etc) for our family to faithfully pay tithing resulting in major ongoing health issues. Also mental issues from fear of financial ruin and emotional trama from the continual messages of 'Never Good Enough."
I want my health back, my money back, I want years of my life back and all that time and health I could have spent with my kids and spouse back! I want career prospects back too.
I am thankful we are out. I hope my children will never have to deal with anything like this. I am thankful we left as a family. I hate how this religion acts as both the abuser and then victim. I hate the emotional abuse they encourage our friends and family to impose on us due to our decision. I am mad, are you certain we cannot sue???
