I am adding a link here to a blog I ran across Yesterday. Jason is a former youth pastor trying to find freedom from the religious system that he has been performing in. I don't know Jason at all except for his heart that he has shared on his blog. Jason, I am praying for you and your family to find Jesus as the Way like you could have never even imagined. That is actually a prayer of mine for all of us.
Jesus as the Truth is so important. But it is not enough that we know the Truth. Without us learning Him as the Way we will always struggle with living in Him as the Life.
I wish Jason's story was rare but unfortunately it is not. I know of countless stories like his. I am actually more closely involved at this time in two other similar situations where pastors and their families have been so hurt over power plays and have been forced out. It's bad enough that those directly involved are hurt deeply but it doesn't end there. The pain that these fellowships are going through cause scars and mistrust that can last for many years.
We must end this madness that is being carried out in the name of God.
