Re: forgive and forgive
Just sad to s ee so much written about it and nothing done. unless it is all so exagerated that they dont know where to start . Because the lies always get exposed. Its easier to feel sorry for yourself and easiest to blame others for your failures..
Like I said if in the US nothing is impossible. And with God ALL thins are possible.
There are some distinct issues here. People who joined the group of their own free will, and stayed in it for many years may well fit your description.
However, innocent children who were born into the group, and never had a choice but to live a life of abuse certainly have no failures to blame anyone for. They didn't fail, they were failed by their parents, and the adults around them.
These children were often born in foreign countries and moved around the world. The abuse often happened outside the United States. The abusers were known only by bible names, that changed from time to time. Leadership of the cult has been in hiding outside the US for decades.
I legally adopted a child born in this cult. He will be 28 years old this summer. When I was trying to get him a US Passport, it was amazingly difficult. First there was the birth certificate from the hospital located in a foreign country. Then the birth certificate from the US State Dept., then the amended birth certificate from when I adopted him. It just illustrates the convoluted pasts of so many of the second generation who are now adults.
I guess to someone who hasn't been exposed to this it sounds simple to get justice, but it hasn't been. The frustration over this has driven some to suicide, and even a murder. This is a very serious matter, and I'm fairly certain that people abused in this cult have both prayed and called the cops. So far, that hasn't worked.
