Yes, CLW in North Hills. I don’t think my experience was unusual. All those I hung with were also having very positive experiences. And as you probably know CLW continues with about half the number that were there before the implosion (I haven’t been there in almost a year). And obviously those who continue don’t feel they were abused.
I think the situation is that LWF could be heaven or hell depending where and when you were there, and your level of involvement.
That being said I’m going through a spiritual detox and am glad to be out. I still love many who are there but have now chosen a different path and church family.
Welcome, Aardvark. I'm happy for you that you have chosen a different path. As far as your acquaintances in TLWF having had an overall positive experience, please bear in mind that complaining about leadership was highly frowned upon. Most people in such a controlling atmosphere will put on a happy face. At some point, you may be surprised to learn that individuals among your friends have actually had devastating experiences while part of the group. They may not have been willing or able to share these experiences until fully separated from that atmosphere. And emotional separation after such a long time in the fellowship may take years to sort out. I wish you a true new day.
