Be strong and courageous, but you don't need to face your healing journey alone.

I have a profound love and respect for the Old Testament of the Bible. I have been drawn to it since I broke beliefs with my cult group and now read Richard Hess’, The Old Testament, for fun. I highly recommend it.
Without proper instruction, the Old Testament allows so much room for misinterpretation and division among the members of the church. These texts are in the prime position to be twisted and turned by cult leaders or by those desiring to advance their own agenda. The Old Testament was the foundation for the group I was raised in, with so many verses taught out of context, to the detriment of Christianity’s beauty. In truth, this testament is deeply rich and offers an abundance of wisdom for me to live by.
As I have been studying my way through the Old Testament this year, I have noticed a theme that I had not noticed in previous years: a repeated response to fear.
