Most of us in RESCUE have already come out of the institutional church. A few may be at a place where they are wrestling with the idea of coming out of the institutional church.
One of the things that is very frightening for a churchgoer contemplating leaving church is the idea that once they are out, they will be like a fish out of water. They may feel like they won’t survive without the fellowship, the ‘teaching’ (even if the teachings are false), the worship, even though it is attracting demons, have created an emotional tie to a building, where people really do not know each other, much less love each other.
One of the very real needs for ALL believers is the need to have a safe place where they can be real. Where they can confess their faults, one to another, in the fear of God.
