Hi....I am 45 and this began about 6 years ago. the pastor involved developed west nile and then encephalitis during that time and was near death and hospitalized. My hope was that GOD was my defender and that things would change. But, they didn't. Inuendos were made that I was some "Jezebel" or something and because I'm a woman worship leader I think there was worry about how that looked. So, I resigned in my frustration and yet because I loved to worship and felt called to it...I stupidly kept doing it. And then was required to do it...and then was fired for it.... We entered a series of control meetings. One of which I tried to apologize for any disrespect that I had conveyed . The pastor badgered me and questioned my sincerity in front of the other men until I was in a pool of tears. Another occasion he did nearly the same thing.
I am NOT talking about Jehovah's witnesses. I am a protestant Christian...really just a JESUS follower who went to a certain denomination which is not known for this type of thing.
I am staying faithful to JESUS without being loyal to any church or man. I learned that lesson...I think. But my heart is in pieces and doubt about who I am at the core of my soul is always there because of this.
I don't want to go back to that church. I just want some kind of justice for the damages I am left to deal with.
