Ex-Members of Unhealthy Churches Share Their Experiences
Please note that the following experiences are the personal accounts of each person and reflect the views of the authors. Because an experience is included here, it is not meant as an endorsement from me, nor is it necessarily indicative of my views. Many different experiences are shared on this page to show the extent and aftermath of spiritual abuse and/or unbiblical teachings. Due to the various stages of healing in those writing, some experiences may reflect anger or bitterness. Some may even mention sinful actions on their part and this site certainly does not endorse or condone such. Contributors, regardless of their current beliefs, are encouraged to share what they have experienced in their former churches. Please try to keep your focus on the issue of spiritual abuse or unbiblical teachings. I have received numerous experiences that have not been posted, some due to content and some due to time constraints.
If anyone believes an experience posted directly to this site is not truthful, you are free to submit an article in rebuttal to be posted here.
Also, allow me to clear up a misconception about the sharing on this page. It has never been claimed by me that all the experiences shared are examples of spiritual abuse. Some are simply the author's recollections of their experience with a particular church, group or individual. They are events seen through the eyes of the individual writers, written from their perspective. It should be obvious that these may not cover every aspect of what happened. In addition, the lawsuit experiences are usually a gathering together of legal documents and/or news reports and have not been written or submitted by those involved.
