The psalmist decribes in Psalm 1 a healthy spiritual person like a tree, that is grounded and rooted and fruitful. Below are some resources to help you have the stability and fruitfulness in your life that a cultish church robs from you.
CONNECTING AND COUNSELING
If you would like to have someone from Eternal Grace connect with you by phone or online, send your request with a description of the toxic church experience you've been through to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message or text describing your experience at our founder's office confidential line at 1-818-392-4372. It can be quite helpful to externalize your experience and tell it to someone else.
Due to the publicity surrounding our Canaan Land film, we have a waiting list of requests for us to call those abused by cultish churches. We will try our best, although we make no promises or guarantees that we can, to find someone from EG with a similar experience to call you and help you discuss and unpack your experience.
In adddition, we strongly suggest you find a professional counselor to discuss your experiences with religious abuse.
We also recommend you choose an educated therapist with an earned doctorate, not a counselor from the church that hurt you. Controlling churches often suggest you see a counselor from their church, but this often perpetuates the problem and blames the victim.
A therapist who is our friend and specializes in helping victims of religious abuse leave the fold of a toxic church is Dr. Marlene Winell. In addition to counseling, she also conducts "Release and Reclaim" retreats for victims of church abuse. Her website is: http://www.marlenewinell.net/
