I also wanted to say thank you to those who have helped make information and experiences available. I put off working through my experience for a decade, and it has been so helpful to put words to it. It has not made me more bitter or angry, but it has helped me understand what I went through and why it impacted me the way it did, which is important. I don't have another safe place I could have done this (still close ties), so thank you. ...

I wanted to point out another broad result of this intimidation. It sends a loud message to those of us who have left other GCx churches to never speak openly about our negative experience with the movement. People complain that people on this forum are anonymous, and use this fact to discredit our experiences. Can you understand why so many of us are anonymous now? If we are anonymous, perhaps it has less to do with us (liars, delusional, etc.) and more to do with the treatment of others we have repeatedly witnessed. ...

I left in 2009 or so, after 5 years of heavy involvement with the Rock that nearly tore me apart. This forum has been incredibly helpful in my own life and healing, and Iím so grateful it exists. ...
