Who Are We?  We are…

…folks who have been associated…

…in one way or another with various religious groups (mainly Jehovah’s Witnesses) which claim to “speak for God”--exclusively. Either we have been involved ourselves or we have close family and/or friends who, suddenly or over a period of time, cut family ties as they isolated themselves within the group.

There are many “Bible-based” groups…

…which subscribe to particular doctrines and/or have leadership which controls and manipulates individuals within the group. We are most familiar with Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons, but are willing to help others as the conditions they have experienced are all similar.

We are concerned, Bible-believing Christians…

…who desire to reflect the love of the Lord Jesus Christ to those in these various high demand, authoritarian, closed religious groups.

We are networked with others who, like us…

…realize that God is a God of love and mercy Who loves and accepts us unconditionally through our faith in Him alone. Unlike the conditional acceptance of cultic groups, we seek to foster unconditional acceptance of each other as well.

Our Goals

  • To reflect the love of Christ to those caught up in high demand, authoritarian, closed religious groups, to those studying to become involved and to family and friends of these individuals. While these types of groups share much in common, the specific doctrine varies. We do have an emphasis on Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons, yet have information on other groups as well.
  • To be available for support, encouragement & fellowship, developing positive relationships with those in need. This is accomplished largely through our South Florida Support Group. Within our network, we can get a person in need in touch with others in his/her area.
  • To share our documentation, much original, of false prophecies, doctrinal flip-flops, contradictions, and manipulative coercion techniques
  • To encourage individuals to worship, serve, fellowship and grow spiritually in healthy, Bible-believing churches

Leaving a High-demand Group

Why do people coming out of these high demand groups benefit from a support system?

  • Walking away from these controversial groups leaves people with emotional pain, unresolved conflicts in their belief system and questions about:
    • What the Bible really teaches
    • The nature of spiritual/psychological manipulation and abuse
    • Coping with feelings of anger, anxiety, and pain and in need of sharing with others with similar experiences
    • Re-establishing trust in one’s self, in others and in true Christian fellowship

Dear Todd and Betty,

It is such a joy to have met you at the swimming pool. I like your website as well! Please forgive me for the comment about the White House, as I made a joke of a matter that is no laughing matter. Gino and I are very very concerned about our country and we pray for our country, its leaders and most of all that the people will return to the Lord, repent of idolotry and raise a cry and be born in the spirit of love through Jesus Christ. Thank you for your spirit of outreach through Christ and may you be richly blessed. You and your health will be in our prayers. Susan Maini (Gino’s wife) Enjoy.
