Re: Former AFF Member's New Book

I read the reviews and sounds like it’s a bunch of backslid haters bashing the upc ( FYI I’m not upc ). Birds of a feather all flock together. 6 reviews and I think 5 of them were ex upc people all with a “ story “. They all should write a book to make theirselves feel better.

Re: Former AFF Member's New Book

I just read the reviews, it looks like the old days on NFCF. I was raised with a bunch of Italians. I should write a book, my New York Sicilian upbringing. I'm sorry for anyone who went through a hard time in or out of church. But my question is, does the gal who wrote the book have a happy ending? Or is she like Emma Boatsinker with a blog for licking open wounds?

Hey, the list is long, and you can find a book, with a kid, wife, husband, woman, man, best friend, or ex best friend who had it rough. God help everyone, I mean it. It is a tough world out there, and it can be tough in the church. But guess what, I want to know about the happy ending, did they get their wish? I read the review for Ronna's book, sexual freedom? Does it pay the bills? I mean can someone fill me in on how that is supposed to give hope to the hopeless? Hey, Uncle Tony Bitty Joe, I know you lost everything, you are broker than Job's fish tank. All seems to be at the end, but guess what, you can hope for sexual freedom?

I don't believe the word of our testimony is my life before the church. I believe the word of my testimony is inside the church. How I overcame obstacles within the long journey home. How the Holy Ghost has kept me through my trials. How bad things, and super bad things have hit me, but I still keep moving forward in Jesus name. If it wasn't for the Apostolic church I would be dead. It is tough for children, and especially teens who grow up in church sheltered from the outside, not knowing what we know about the outside. Again, I don't know Ronna's story, it sounds pretty bad, but my WORST day in the Church, is way better than my BEST day out in the world before Jesus Christ. I can write a book, about all the tough times I had in the church, show them my battle wounds, the butcher knives deep in my back, my rear end kicked to the top of my head. Betrayal of close brothers and sisters who have blown my ever loving mind. But, what does that glory? Wee wee wee all the way home? Jesus is King, He is the God of gods, Lord of Lords. He has NEVER failed me, while people have, loved ones who have disappointed me, and enemies who have danced on my grave more than I can count. But Jesus is faithful, even if everyone left me for dead, cursed my name, dragged me around the parking lot till the meat fell off my bones, Jesus is still with me, to help me learn from the burn.

I couldn't make it through, sorry Ronna.

But I haven't the foggiest idea who you meant this "book" for.

It sure wasn't us bad machines you left behind, looks like your mind is locked on target for sexual freedom.

Does Amazon sell this book in a brown paper wrapper?

The Lord love your heart Ronna, I hope all works out for you.

But, as a side note, you cannot blame the UPC, the ABC, or the 123 on what happened or is happening with this woman. Good gracious, I think I need to wash my eyes out with battery acid, and use the Infinity gauntlet to wipe my memory clear.
