My name is Ronnie (a nickname for Veronica). I can understand
your concern. I was in COBU for 17 years & I left there
about 12 years ago. It was very hard for me to leave there because
I was so
convinced it was God's will I be there. I saw Jesus do a lot of amazing
things for me while I was there which all the more made me believe that was
where He wanted me. My biggest fear about leaving there (which I
to do several times) was I would never be able to be right with God
unless I was in COBU. It was always instilled in us that we understood
bible more than other christians & that if we would leave there we would
playing games with God and not being faithful to what He showed us.
brought me out of there was coming to the end of my rope in COBU, because
nothing I did was good enough. We were always condemned, told that we were
to hell. Jesus brought me to a place where I realized I needed to find
Him again & I realized nothing was going to change in COBU, as it was
getting worse & worse. Jesus did use others who had left to talk
while I was still there & that did help me even if they didn't realize
what they said was helping me to think about what was wrong there.
is very important & I will continue to pray. My hope is that Jesus
open their eyes to how much it has changed. COBU no longer adheres
to the Gospel. If there's anything I can do or answer any questions,
I'd be glad to help.
