accomplished a feat I've wanted to do for years. Traveled to Hot Springs Arkansas. Went to library and looked up an old newspaper January 6 1976. there i was on the front page with an article about John Christ. Now I'm hoping to contact the other citizens named and apologize, thank them for their prayers for my recovery.

It will be interesting to see if anyone replies. In 1978 I was in a drug rehabilitation humanizing program during the blizzard of that year. Coming from a mental health hospital in Toledo. Joined the cult in Florida in 1975. Learned how to walk barefoot eat out of garbage cans jump on trains etc. As I mentioned in the last entry the only other member I've ever had contact with is the man w

Recently been studying with a Methodist church among

just checking being gone from a spell. Understand 2 yrs. of post are gone. This was a good site to pick-up on others stories that had gone through the same ordeal. best way to reach a disease is to find one that is able to share about it. Not that many had had this particular one...

Don't check on this enough to stay current. Strange how one finds another who has similar experiences. The everlasting life is what I'm striving for. Lot of wonderful books . Sometimes the bible gets neglected. Good thing I've been going to a real small church in my neighborhood to keep me on track.

had similar premonition and experience after I had been deprogrammed. Surely it was a spiritual experience. We know now for certain what spirit.

Beleive me I'm very glad I found this forum. Many years have passed since the very short time I spent with the group. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to Change what I can. And the Wisdom to know the difference. Perhaps the cult in itself wasn't the fault of my make-up. It was an influence. All what I've read about it I can relate. After f

I believe I remember you as well as Barry. Humility is what I strive for. Recently been studying literature have found it is what I need to strive for. I must keep things simple. Read where pride is opposite humility. Glad more names are coming up. I was all messed up. Got somewhat recovered one day at a time. Was sweeping the shop floor and heard on the radio a man who left and found himself.

Hemit, Calif. seems to be quite the little town. It has made news concerning the Scientology Church. The local law enforcement is under attack from the motorcycle gang. I finally came to grips with myself being brainwashed by the Christ Family back in the middle part of the 70's. That cult was always a skyhook for me in case my life fell apart. Now with the leader being revealed for what he

I did my tour in 1975. Had prayed to put the bottle down. Ended up replacing it with smoking grass. I'd just turned 21 so figured it was a sign. Figured I was like a Boy scout walking barefooted with Tender feet trying to be an Eagle. Rode freight train through the Big Easy. Finding other members along the way. Camping in Avocadoe Groves in Florida,(which are all built up over). Mt. Shasta w
