I wanted to find out if you have anyone has had any experiences at these churches.
I have recently left this group, due to cult like tendencies and the heavy indoctrination through the use of their prophets books, podcasts and even songs. The pastors all preached from the prophets books on Sunday ( which would include scripture from the bible, but very out of context).
They were very legalistic and had a heavy focus on giving/ service (which is good when done willingly, not from force).
They also ascribed heavily to the OT way of living & curses, which we know no longer are active due to the New Testament and Jesus dying on the cross ( the only curse that is still active today, is he curse in humankind, of ADAM AND EVE in the garden of Eden).
I have a lot to say on this and I’m not even articulating myself properly, or detailing the worst bits of what happened, but I really am interested I see if any had shared experiences of this.
For context I was heavily involved in this church and attending on/ of f since 16 ( & consistently since 19). I attended with my family, who had been in the church for around 20 years ( as you can imagine it was with great thought and difficulty to leave this group… and was not easy at all, however the doctrine that was being taught was soo incorrect, it was unequivocally clear that this was a cult… even though we had been in attendance for so many years).
I look forward to hearing your experiences, feel free to ask more questions

it does sound like a cult. it requires great strength of mind to reject this type of brainwashing organisation.
