> "An Open Letter to The Living Word Fellowship
> Congregation from Shalom Abrahamson-Caples
> Why am I writing this open letter to The Living
> Word Fellowship (TLWF) congregation?
> 1. A real problem exists, even after removing Rick
> Holbrook from the ministry and those in power
> should be held accountable.
> 2. I can no longer carry these secrets and their
> shame and I want to be free of the damage of these
> 3. I want the other girls and women and men and
> children who have also been abused to know that
> they are not alone. I am not being brave, I just
> believe that the truth will set me free and
> hopefully provide a way, a safe way, for others to
> come forth with their truth and be set free.
> 4. To start living unapologetically without
> regrets although I do not know if that is possible
> because exposing this truth is embarrassing to me
> and hurtful to many others. I was too trusting and
> allowed people to control my life decisions that
> in return hurt me and others around me. I was
> fearful and intimidated and even worse, I believed
> they were the only way to God, “Christ in the
> flesh”. I was raised in The Living Word Fellowship
> from age 3-35 yo and I did not know other
> Christian churches or Christian ways, but I am no
> longer fearful or intimidated. I am free.
