It's now been a few years since I've removed myself, my husband and my children from a toxic place of worship. Even after things turned ugly, I had convinced myself that this setting offered some sort of advantage, in terms of eternal salvation. Now I know the opposite is true. Staying in a poisonous atmosphere would have harmed our souls. Church bullies are very frustrating and distracting.
Leaving this setting was the best decision we ever made. I had prayed hard for things to improve where we were, but God answered my prayer in a different way that turned out to be miraculous. Living through a church mobbing can bring many blessings, although these are typically apparent only when you look back upon the situation.
So, when you're under fire, in church of all places, turn go God. He's listening and He's walking closely with you during this trial.
