no I am not mocking you.Some cult groups are more severe than others.You obviously were in a very bad one.
And I too was raised in a cult.
I am also sure you are correct: iamworried will not be back.Your posts have probably made sure that iamworried is scared to post because they will be attacked, and that person has now lost a source of information.
Things like abuse of money,having to buy religious acceptance,, having to follow all the leader says as being correct without being able to think for yourself, moving when the leader says to, being cut off from your family because they are not spiritual enough: not good signs in a religious group.And that seems to be what iamworried is describing.
If you were in a group that went bad from originally a normal religious approach, then you too can understand why iamworried is concerned about where things are going.
I know that at the moment you need your anger. Being able to be truly angry at those who have hurt you is part of healing.
Just mellow a little on other people who are also hurt and working through their own journey.
