Hi Outcast.

I am so very sorry for what you are going through. It definitely does sound like a nightmare or personal hell.

Right now, it sounds like you need the assistance of professionals. Trained lawyers, law enforcements personnel, and counselors. Do what is necessary to provide protection and support for yourself and your children.

Of course, we cannot never guarantee 100% protection over our children. That is a sobering and terrifying prospect for parents. You had no way of knowing how to prevent these terrible things from happening. It was not your fault.

It sounds as though we will not be hearing more from you in the short term. That is ok. We wish you well and hope that you get the professional services that you and your children need in this trying time for you all.

Oh, man, I was just about to impart my wisdom regarding similar aspects of our faith crises. I still could but it might not make sense without the OP.

I'll just say this because I've said it here before. I spent several years being mad at God before I figured out it wasn't God I should be mad at. He didn't do anything to me or cause anything to be done to me. My expectations for God were framed in teachings of men (and women) at church. I have since realized the God we so often hear about in F&TM is not the real God and that's there's much mingling of the philosophies of men (and women) mingled with scripture in the church. FWIW after giving up being mad at God I was mad at the church, but that wasn't correct either. If you need t be mad at anybody, be mad at the people who led you astray, but also recognize there is power in forgiving.
