Seems we went through Catholic School together. In addition - social ostracism once I removed myself from their control. As a previous Lector,
Altar Society Member, Auxillary, Cathecism Teacher, Youth Group leader, I was so indoctrinated until I couldn't answer my own kids who new in their
souls that it was wrong to follow. What hit me finally? My daughter, now 20, asked why does the church believe that only through JC will we be
saved? I thought it was through the Creator? Then my research, learning, and separation began.
A great note I heard once is "God's intention is for all to be ONE family" then in the next hypocritical note, it'll state "that only through JC,
will anyone be saved". So screw the rest of humanity?
Now - spiritually, it is just me & the Creator. No middleman required. Nothing but interference. And I agree with other posters re: control, cult,
To the OP: walk your own walk. My husband is still engrained and has NO understanding or even WANTS to know about my breakaway. Utter lack of
respect, compassion, very judgemental, ostracized as his spouse, etc., BUT, I still attend with him to support & RESPECT his choice. That's my walk.
I do not kneel when I attend with him or say anything - why should I be subserviant to something? I am at peace within my heart being one with the
Creator. It's that simple.
Good luck on your journey - I hope you don't snap like most followers probably will when the Church implodes. BTW - did you know the filing against
the Church from Canada? 50,000 children missing? Believe it comes to a head in April. Find the suit, if your journey takes you there. Peace all!
