Get Out - Get New Focus on Life

I recently received a question in my inbox concerning how to survive Armstrongism, and what people could do to restore their spiritual sanity. I will gladly answer that question in the hope that others can benefit from this also.

As you know, Armstrongism is all about mental control - people have been brainwashed into reading scriptures from a specific perspective. Things are 'read into' the scriptures, and therefore, restoring clarity involves getting out of that mental trap.

You need to restore your ability to read the Bible for what it TRULY says. Not what any minister told you it says.

In other words, you need to leave the Scriptures for a time. Getting a new focus on life involves prayer, going through the many errors and all the confusion you had - and THEN, and only then, you will be able to read what was actually in your Bible again.

Some will argue that they would want to do it another way, and if it works for them, that is just fine. But offering my perspective was the point of this reply to the question, and that is the best advice I have to offer on what worked for me.

Happy new year. I hope 2015 will be a year of freedom for all of you out there in the blogosphere. :-)
