Mascorro, Allison (McCullough)

Dear Friends and Ministry,

I am writing this to let you all know I will no longer be a part of this church. 

I feel that it is imperative each one seek out revelation from God individually. I have come to the realization that this is no longer the church I once thought it was ; the one I have been attending for the past 18 years.

I am no longer feeling at peace in the meetings or being fed spiritually. I no longer feel that I have to conform to traditions or standards of the kingdom based on someone else’s personal conviction in order to be saved. I do not feel that I have to have fellowship, worship, sing or pray in a certain way in order to be saved.

After I discovered how CSA/SA has been handled by the ministry over the past 100+ years, I came to the conclusion this is not the way for me. The lack of love and care from the ministry to the victims of abuse deeply saddens me. The lack of action taken to protect the friends from perpetrators, and the lack of transparency about the criminal activity going on behind the scenes angers me.

Defending perpetrators and ignoring the pleas of victims of abuse is not the right thing to do. I want to do the right thing. I stand for truth. I stand for the truth as it is in Jesus. I’m taking a stand right here right now. I support the victims of any kind of abuse (sexual, spiritual, psychological). I do not support workers or friends that stand idly by and do not care for the victims of abuse. 

I feel grateful for the love I have received from friends and some workers in this fellowship. I am thankful that many have good hearts and are doing the right thing, speaking out, and standing for truth. I am thankful for what I have learned, However God has revealed to me that there are greener pastures out there.

I wish you all the best in your spiritual journey.
