This conversation from the comments section brought up a really important point. Milly left the following comment on the page “Have you been personally affected by SCOAN?”:
“I’m really pleased to see this website up and running though I find it really hard to read as like many I have been affected by SCOAN and by TBJ. I by no means have experienced what some of my dear friends have experienced but still the affects of SCOAN linger in my mind…
SCOAN has contributed to myself and others losing the better part of ten years with dear friends and unfortunately to have lost all contact with others. So many of my friends and family have felt disillusioned by finding out the truth about SCOAN and TBJ. TBJ is not a man of God and I wholeheartedly support this website and I hope that more people will come out into the open about their bad experiences and will not be ashamed.”
Madeleine, who contributed to this post, replied:
“Thanks for your comments here, Milly. You mention losing time with friends and I wanted to say that I also have lost precious time with family members. If by grace there are people in SCOAN who read this BE ASSURED that there are family and loyal loving friends who are regularly praying for a restoration of relationships and even after ten years there are people who will welcome you with open arms and are longing to rebuild friendships.”
Well said, Madeleine. We second that. There are many people waiting to rekindle old friendships, as well as a growing number of ex-disciples who have made the transition to life after SCOAN. You will not be alone.
