I finally received an email back from someone I asked about their experience leaving the UPCI. I won't name them or reveal details of the communication to protect their privacy, but it's incredibly encouraging to know that there are licensed, ordained members of the UPCI that have left due to the garbage that is permeating that organization. The fact that these men have spoken out publicly to other members of the UPCI is also relieving. The largest issue most people who leave abusive UPCI and/or Modalist churches face is that they are alone and the only ones. There is a constant struggle within them to keep a love for God in the face of all they have been through in "His name". It's gratifying to be able to hear from God that there are others who have not bowed. I am reminded of the song "Would Jesus Wear a Rolex" ( when I look around at what often seems to be the focus of the "ministry" in abusive churches. When someone leaves, the ministry always comments on their tithes. They either belittle what they gave or wonder how someone that gave so much could leave. The other issue is control through fear. It's nice to know that others have gone through the same deal and come out successful in their devotion to and walk with God.

Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord. -Psalm 150:6
