This is what really made my atheist dad roll his eyes. When he would hear of "Ex-Christians" giving these sorts of "testimonies."

She is no kid dealing with religious hypocrisy.

She is an old woman, and needing to get it together.

Sexual freedom my foot.

Believe me, you don't want to do that.

Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

Re: Former AFF Member's New Book

I would hope that rather than attack people like this we could show some compassion. No circumstance excuses a person being away from God but you also can't stick your head in the sand and say that circumstances don't affect people.

When this woman's family fell apart she was a young girl at a very impressionable age. I am betting her childhood fears of the tribulation, hell, etc were magnified when her father fell, parents divorced, and her father eventually died of AIDS.

To just trash her is not christian at all. She needs prayer and good examples of Christ like behavior. The posts on this thread are why I don't spend near as much time here as I did years ago. It is discouraging to see just how spiteful and mean people can be. We should not stoop to the behavior of those who have ill will against us or the church.

Good thing she isn't an ultracon pastor and this isn't NFCF. Right?

Bro, you know as well as I that she had good examples growing up. She wasn't raised in a cloister on a mountain. She was in the UPC, a plethora of the good, bad, and the ugly. By all means put her on the prayer list, but she is an old woman now, she is not a child. You don't spend time here because of my posting? You own the forum, you want an echo instead of a voice, then you can solve that with one click.
