The Way Out To Freedom
The Way Out To Freedom
The Way Out to Freedom was born out of personal experiences of abuse and various traumas - a journey of discovery, recovery and healing through a spiritual awakening of a deep relationship with God
through Jesus Christ.
This awakening spurred a deep desire to help others who are questioning their own experiences.
in marriage, faith communities, and workplaces.
For many of us in our journey to find healing from emotional and spiritual abuse, we have discovered that there are far more cult-like, controlling and toxic churches than we would like to believe. Too often church members are shamed, silenced or afraid to ask questions. Because we know in doing so, there will be consequences, as we have experienced personally. It may seem like there are few people or places to talk openly about what seems to be so obvious, but few acknowledge.
This is that safe haven, an open forum. No shaming, no fear mongering, no hate or slander.
Just the word of God, facts, resources and
most of all the love of Christ.
We are not here to lead you to any particular decision, opinion or action. This is simply a safe space to ask questions, dialogue and contemplate without judgment. Be comforted, heard and maybe gently challenged to go higher and further in your faith.
Look at the truths of God and contemplate what may be an unsafe church environment, community or relationship.
Let's learn together what God's word says,
find out what trusted resources and support groups are out there to help us make the best decisions moving forward for ourselves and our families.
You are not alone.
You are our neighbor, our friend and our family in Christ.
In the parable about the Good Samaritan,
Jesus said, "Go and do likewise".
We are called to help those who are hurting, helpless, attacked and in need of loving support,
care and kindness. Luke 10:30-37
Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
