10. The community church down the street from where I live, works fine and offers me & my family more QUALITY and EXCELLENCE and convenience (as far as church life goes) than anyother group around–especially the local WCG.

9. I’m older, wise and a better manager of my time than I used to be…and so the only reason (in my mind) I can see the ‘need’ for WCG to exist at all, is to serves reminder for me to never get caught up in such extreme religious dysfunction and deception again.

8. Too much distrust, disagreement and disrespect with WCG’s theology, leadership and wishy-washy (& amateurish) aproach. Boundaries have been crossed where there is no turning back.

7. Quality spiritual, mental & emotional health & excellence in ALL aspects for my life, is a high priority that sorely disqualifies WCG and banishes them (as a denomination) for the rest of my life or until hell freezes over or pigs fly (which ever comes first). 🙂

6.The reality of WCG’s sordid, sleazy history is stranger than fiction…and it is unnecessary baggage from which I choose to be completely separated.

5.Too much distrust, disagreement and disrespect with WCG’s theology, leadership and wishy-washy (& amateurish) aproach. Boundaries have been crossed where there is no turning back.

4. I agree with Bob that it is just plaine UNHEALTHY to hang together with a bunch of “familiar” recovering cultists, as a group.

3. The thought of placing myself back into the warm, loving embrace of the same individuals/personalities who spiritually abused me, is just SICK! (Editor’s note: RIGHT ON SISTER!!!)

2. Too much distrust, disagreement and disrespect with WCG’s theology, leadership and wishy-washy (& amateurish) aproach. Boundaries have been crossed where there is no turning back.

1. I have yet to be convinced that WCG alleged “repentance” and partial transformation is authentic.

Right on Richard!!!

For those who haven’t looked in the comments section about Armstrongist Refuseniks post as of late, I will post this here:

Since you brought it up, you’re the first online to know — I’m taking my own leave of absence from UCG. I didn’t know you wrote that phrase before I used it to a group of brethren from my UCG congregation, at a Feast dinner Tuesday night.

The people in my congregation seemed understanding in person. Even my Pastor did, when I told him at the end of the Last Great Day service Thursday. (But he already knew about it, from the Local Elder who was at the Tuesday dinner.) We parted company with a hug.

I explained to all that my examination of other options could wind up being one long lap around the race track — and I could wind up back in UCG. I’m not leaving out that possibility. I’m praying God will lead me to the right place.

My first stop this weekend? I’ll call it Megachurch Baptist — which has a 5pm Saturday Bible study, a 6pm worship service (sundown’s 7:20pm here right now), and a potential new controversy over a change in its incorporation status. My city has no Seventh-Day Baptist, so this will have to do for now.

Richard, welcome to regaining your sanity that was stolen and very importantly welcome to freedom!  I look forward to hearing your current exploits. My advice, make that leave of absence from the UCG, a long, long, permanent leave and do not step back! God bless!
