i was raised in the assembly and left it years ago. to be honest i'm a bit nervous about posting here. my family is still in the assembly and i would hate for them to be forbidden contact with me. on the other hand, i find myself continuously curious about what is happening in the various assemblies since they were my world for so long. i like to hear about old friends and how they are doing, and i miss them. i believe the assembly is way off-base and do not even consider myself a christian at this point. my faith is totally gone, but i am not worried about it. i am a good person. i feel deeply sad when i witness the heavy burdens of imagined guilt and failure these people in the assembly carry around with them, and great joy that i have found my freedom. send me a private message if you are interested in getting more details from me and discussing these topics.
