When I left the church, I was severely warned... some out of anger and some out of genuine concern... that I was walking out from beneath the protective umbrella of the church.
I was no longer under the covering.
I was rejecting guidance, refusing instruction, and becoming a rebellious, obstinate loose cannon.
A lost sheep.. stupid and weak.
What I actually discovered was that I could guide myself and there was nothing I needed protection from.
It was all scare-tactics to keep me confined and controlled.
I believe in spiritual independence and encourage you to believe you are not stupid and weak.
You are wise enough to guide yourself and strong enough to be independent.
