Many false leaders (spiritual fathers) exercise the seat of authority in a "lordship" type position. They may never openly say this, but the air in their congregation is permeated with a sense of "everyone needs to serve the leader...it's all about the leaders vision...sons need to serve their father's vision." The problem with this line of thinking is that it is the

For the first time in fifty years I went to see a Psychiatrist yesterday. After an hour of detailing my childhood on a very high level the shrink says, you are a very complicated fellow and I cannot help you. In his fifty years of counseling the shrink claims to have seen 2 cult members. What struck me the hardest was first the reaction when I said I was raised in a cult. He laughed and said &

WOW, new people. Awesome!! I love reading what redacted and the others have written. The freshness of the wounds to your souls is palpable. I feel your pain. I think we all feel your pain. I was brought into TLW in 1970 at age 3 and left for good in 1984. I missed the whole "shepherding" thing and reign of Marilyn the terrible. I can tell you as a victim of abuse (by TLW) on many lev

GoingRogue, Hiding in the car while entering the home where school was held was likely due to several factors. Zoning, licensing for the school, insurance and of course the always paranoid cult mentality probably all play a part. The glaring stares of the neighbors watching twenty little kids marching in and out every morning may have been undesirable to the adults. I can tell you the kids did
