An Open Letter To Those Who Have Been Hurt By Church ~ Suzie Lind

As I get older, I'm noticing a trend of people exiting church who love God and desperately want to be with the saints, but they are so wounded by the people who should of loved them.

When people leave we hear the following, "They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us." 1 John 2:19
The question that has to be asked is who is "us" in most organized churches? 
"You were not allowed to be the person God created you to be, because someone along the way got their traditions mixed up with their theology and couldn’t tell the difference.
Your marriage failed. Your kids were difficult. Rather than being supported in the hardest season of your life you were abandoned because no one wanted to get their hands dirty with what was happening with you." Full article HERE
