I am new here. I grew up in this movement, my father was an ordained minister with this denomination. When he was in his late 30`s he suffered a nervous breakdown over the book of Revalation. My husband is an Ex-Minister with the UPCI also. We were very active in the movement, childrens ministry and sunday school teachers..etc...etc. My current problem lies with our 17 year old daughter. She is currently in the Hospital on a Mental Ward because she had some Suicidal Thoughts stemming from some Scare Tactics that came from being raised in this religion for years. I am angry. My mother is still a big part of that religion and she makes it a point to let us know how bad we are because we left the church and how we need to get back in there and how our childrens mental issues are a direct onslaught of the devil because we chose to leave the church. I am just sick of hearing it! My daughter is so confused, she is scared that God is going to kill her or hurt her or do something to her because she doesnt go to church anymore, Its like she is two different people. I have spoken in depth with our Counselor about how I feel her problems are directly related to this Relgion. She agrees. I have turned to the internet to see what help I can find as far as others who have been there and felt the same way and how did you finally overcome all this? I mean we have heard it preached from the pulpit that if you leave this church something terrible will happen to you and one of the Ministers might call the wrath of God down upon you, they use scare tactics and I have told my daughter all this. How do I help her overcome this mess once and for all.
