I was just wondering if other people still go on with religion after leaving a cult, or am i a rarity?
Some do and some don't. My wife and I have, but in a very different form than what we experienced in the cult. Many of the other former members of the group to which we belonged have forsworn religion altogether.
My wife actually wrote a book about our experiences entitled, [i:e8b48a2283]I Can't Hear God Anymore: Life in a Dallas Cult[/i:e8b48a2283]. There is information about the group, Trinity Foundation, elsewhere on Rick Ross, including a discussion thread in "Cults, Sects, and New Religious Movements."
It is a real struggle to hold onto faith after leaving a cult, as others on this thread have noted.
