I'm not free just to walk away. My spouse is still very much in it to the point of actually believing that there are some things that have been passed down from the apostles to the present day workers that are not in the bible. Believe me we have had some discussions about this.
I go to meeting for now because that is my fellowship not my salvation, and to keep my marriage intact. Some of the older ones in meeting talk about "God's truth and way" (meaning meeting and the ministry), but most do not, keeping their testimony about Christ. I leave the timing of my exit to the Lord.
I appeared for a time to be the spouse that was hanging on despite my wife's and daughter's leaving. But I had just timed my exit until such time as I knew exactly where I was going.
In the meantime there was even an attempt to excommunicate me, but I thwarted the excommunication discussion in a way that could have made the workers look much worse than I did, so the session ended. It sounds funny in retrospect, but it was an extremely tense encounter.
Just had a nice visit with 2 sister workers. I am so glad for their sacrifice for the Gospel of Christ.
Quincy, if you had a nice visit with 2 sister workers and you are glad for their sacrifice...then I am glad for you but by saying that, you are opening yourself up to a barrage of anti-2&2 animosity. Nothing stirs up the devil in souls more than someone that in even in the slightest way, speaks kindly of the workers, with the odd exception. ALL need our help. ALL need our forgiveness. ALL need our love. 😞
