Getting Out : Leaving

deciding to leave

just curious as to when other people decided to leave. did you always know you would?

i remember when i first knew that i didn't want to be in the cult. i was 7 or 8 & i think i was getting ready to go to school. we had just realized that we didn't get the 2nd, or blue, "kidz mop" because we didn't send in our tithe, or we were late, or maybe it was less than a hundred dollars.
i don't know why exactly, but i remember thinking "i don't want to be like this for the rest of my life."

I decided to leave when I realized that the family was becoming a personality cult. When I read in some FSM the reactions of Family members seeing Maria for the first time, I got sick in my stomach and I had a strange feeling that something was not right (I know it was my conscience). Then historical nosense followed (mao being repentent and in Heaven), Daniel's symposium, etc...and God knows how many other familiar spirits and plain witchcrafts they were getting into.

Besides, I didn't have the guts to tell my 14 year old daughter that she could masturbate while thinking about Jesus and that she could open her legs to whoever will ask her when she turned 16.

Then the last straw was to get my kids to memorize key verses. It broke my heart to see little kids being fed this nonsense. In the end, I was the only one coming with a Bible in hand. Nobody gave any respect or authority to the Bible. You see, I join the Family when they were returning to the Bible foundation and I left when every word of Peter and Maria became Gospel's truth, Now I'm back to the basics and the Lord has truly bless our family. It great to be free again.

Yea when I was eight I tried to run away from the HCS, needless to say it was a futile attempt at defiance. Me and my buddy were picked up about an hour later at the bottom of the hill. I was spanked every day for about a week, and my whole class got beat as well. After about a month of silence restriction and, a thousand mo letters later I was released from the gulag. I think my class mates are still a little pissed at me, but I was my first genuin atempt at leaving.

Hey,Did that happen in Porto Rico ?If that's you I remember that whole thing.I'm a little older than you an infact I think I was the oldest girl at that school I was almost 12 I think at the time.I always thought you were the bravest person, you and your buddy.You were cought at the home I was, in by my mother, she saw you peeking through the grass on the hill behind the house by the pool.We had a big prayer thing for you guys that night you took off and I was just praying that you had made it to where ever you were going LOL! I also remember what happened to you after that.Maybe that's a different story but it sure sounded like what happened in P.R.If thats you please let me know , I have more things to add to that story.(reply to this comment

never mind, I just found out what the HCS was.My sister just told me that it's in Japan. I couldnt remember what the name of the school in P.R. was but she say's it wasnt that.That's so funny that,that also happened in P.R..

there was a school there as well and we would go home on the weekends. And one weekend 2 of the boys packed there bags and took off and were stoping by the house we lived in to see if this girl in our home wanted to go with them, they had climbed up the hill and down around the back of our house and they were peeking through the grass my mother talked them down to the house, There fathers came and picked them up and we were told they got the beating of there lives something like 20 swats with the belt buckle and all.

All the parents of the other kids were told to spank all there kids aswell.But my parents didnt think that was right seeing as we hadent done anything wrong . And They couldnt bring themselves to do it.So, we left P.R. a few weeks later.

But I felt so bad for all those kids, the girl in our home who was going to go with them, was beaten with the belt as well by her mother.The thing was we didnt know anything about what they had planned so I never understood why the sheppards told all the parents in the whole school to spank there kids, because the other kids didnt know anything about it.And they didnt assist them in anyway either.That was too much for my parents to handle so we just left before things go worse.I never heard anything else about them.(reply to this comment

I decided I wanted 2 leave when my parents told me that i had 2 follow the lord that I had 2 do what the GN's said. Or I couldn't be "fully in gods army" that I had 2 give everything up. I thought "why should I give everything up 4 something I dn't even believe, & a god I've never seen" I felt it was wrong 4 other people 2 control my life. people that didn't even know me!
