I am a former Oneness Pentecostal (UPC and independent Apostolic background). I began blogging to work through some of the questions I had in leaving that group. The posts here begin by reflecting my earlier blog. I began this blog in order to transfer posts from an earlier blog and then decided to just keep the old one. Under the current circumstance I’ve reopened it and will be making some new posts. As I learn what’s really happened I’ll write about it. I will not post rumors unless I’m fairly certain there’s truth to them, and even then I will make sure to denote them as the rumors they are.
The blog is not for gossip. What happened recently with my former pastor’s resignation has deeply affected me, even though I’m not there. Unfortunately, I was shunned when I left. There is no one I can call for facts, no way to know exactly what is happening. Yet I was there for long enough that I still picture what might be happening and how people may react. I still feel the pain of their discovery. However, from the outside looking in, I also feel the release from the labels that were placed on me. It’s an odd situation to find myself in.
This blog is not written to debate. It doesn’t represent an attempt to turn people away from what they believe, but to offer those who feel they must leave some hope. Leaving a church or an organization doesn’t have to mean leaving God. The heavens are God’s throne and the earth is His footstool. He’s much bigger than a building or organization. If you leave a building, fellowship, or organization, remember He promised never to leave or forsake you. No matter what.
