My religious trauma struggles

If I am attending a church where the preacher begins discussing words like repent, submit, and obey, I tend to be cautious. This kind of authoritarian language causes me to be instantly on guard.

Yes, I escaped my religious trauma. Yes, I have written a book about my story. But I'm still human. I still struggle with triggers and mistrust. For me this journey of healing is a long one. My scars will always remind me of my pain. Yet...

Here's where things turn for me: Jesus rescued me from my past experience. Jesus gives us grace and unconditional love. He fills me with renewed strength for each day to fight off those who seek to destroy all that I've overcome.

One of my favorite verses: Isaiah 41:10 "...do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." These are God's direct promises to us.

With Jesus beside us and leading us to His light, how can we fail?

So what? You really think your leaving the choorch really matters when you have God? Exactly ...and who do you wish to please at your final hour, gorgeous?


I left conforming Catholicism cuzz I thot it was highly superficial now: whorizontal, cuttin-me-down, pride and the icy coldness which emanates literally/figuratively.

No thx, dudes.


All we need is 2 things:

  1. Love for God

  2. Love for the 'poor'
