From The Cult to The Pulpit: A Coming Out of Experiences
Prepare to be encouraged by this book...
The cult portion of this story took place over forty years ago. Yet the effects of that experience have haunted me for decades. Manipulation, control, oppression, and involuntary servitude are what I experienced as a child. Unfortunately, those behaviors became seeds in the soil of my heart, affecting me in ways that most cannot imagine; all of it birthed on the platform of religion and a false faith. This book is moving, touching, transparent and real. When I realized that most people who come out of a cult never enter back into organized religion, I knew that God had His hands on my life.
My prayer and hope are that while reading this journey that you, the reader, will be encouraged that the same God that did it for me is able to do it for you.
Go ahead and open the pages so you can read a glimpse of my experience and while reading, you will gain the hope you need for your experience.
