I am never ceased to be amazed at the responses I see on this forum. You'd think I'd realize that it's hard for people to change, but I guess I always hold onto a little hope that they will. I guess I need to worry more about myself, as Jane said, and forget about trying to help others get beyond the wounds of spiritual abuse and find recovery.
For many years I was stuck after being spiritually abused. I was stuck in the mindset of the brainwashing that I received at my former church. I found a way out of that destructive thought process, and found a way to get control of my mind back from my former abuser. I share it with this forum, and everyone goes on full tilt. I get attacked by people who say that what I have found is from Satan, and is anti-Christ.
What I find ironic is the same people who attack my means of recovery are mainly those who come here posting day after day about how much of a victim they are, how depressed they are, and how horrible life is. They are obviously just as stuck as I was (or worse), and are not willing to even listen to logic that does not fit into their little religious box. Even when I back up what I say with Scripture, that's not good enough for them. They seem to feel the need to continually tell me that what I have found is anti-Christ and of the devil.
I shared something that set me free from the negative thought patterns that spiritual abuse and other life experiences inflicted on me. If you want to throw rocks at me, tell me I am filled with Satan, tell me I am deceived, tell me that my recovery doesn't line up with the Bible - I say this to you: You go and find recovery yourself, and then come back and tell me about a better way to do it. Don't come here and whine and play the perpetual victim and then tell me that my recovery method is anti-Christ. Put some action to your words, and then show me the results.
