When I first became a believer in Christ, I sweetly recall having such satisfying and personal times with God.  But, after many months in GCx I remember loosing confidence in my relationship with Him.  What sadness that brings me.  I felt I hadn't done enough "godly works" to have a good audience with him.  In fact, I too often thought he was so disappointed with me.  So, I wasn't usually certain whether God was speaking to me.  I already had my mental GCx list of what pleased God so I didn't pay attention to much outside of that.  Boy, did I miss a lot!!  I especially missed his guiding me away from their teaching and their "authority".  After I left, I started SEEING the verses he kept highlighting to me formed a repititive theme.  He basically told me leave them, over and over.  He told me this party was destroying my faith.  I just didn't get WHO it was that was confusing me because I was deafened by their false teaching.

In GCx, we were not encouraged to personally hear from and follow God's voice.  This became obvious when it included near anything outside the church's goals, plans, and schedule.  If there was something the church told you to pray about, you were strongly encouraged to seek counsel on those things from a leader or an elder.  When it differed, guess who we were told was "really hearing" from God?  Why seek God when there is a higher power?  Why ask Him when their are those who are "closer" to God than you are?

So we thought.     But, we were brainwashed.     They were DANGEROUSLY....WRONG.

If you desire to relearn how to enjoy His satisfying and comforting voice, then you might enjoy part or all of this series.  This is one refreshing and sound voice on God's Word.  I have been made stronger through some of this teacher's encouragement and empowerment.  Below is his series on Hearing God's voice.  The title is "Frequency":
