Reba Riley is the debut author of Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome: A Memoir of Humor & Healing In 30 Religions, the founder of the Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome community online, and a blogger at Patheos.com
Reba grew up in a fundamentalist Christian home where the wallpaper & dinner napkins featured Bible verses, & the Smurfs were considered demonic. She told her kindergarten class the letters of Santa's name could be arranged to "Satan." Reba’s 10,000 hours of education included evangelical schools, Christian college followed by a stint at the Focus of the Family Institute with Dr. James Dobson, and an intensive ministry training program at a megachurch in Colorado Springs—a program that swiftly kicked her out when she shared her religious doubts with the leadership. Reba lost everything - including herself. Enter Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome.
Reba got sick. Really sick. With a near-debilitating chronic mystery illness doctors couldn’t diagnose or treat. At 29, the illness made her vulnerable enough that she finally had to face the fact she’d avoided for the better part of a decade: her spirit was sicker than her body. Reba decided to undertake a spiritual recovery program: she would visit thirty religions before her thirtieth birthday—not to find a religion, but to find peace.
Through her adventures, Reba realized she didn’t have to choose religion to choose God…or good. She discovered sometimes we have to get lost to get found. Two years after completing her thirty religions project and eighteen months after recovering from her illness, Reba is here to share dispatches from her journey of healing.

There are a lot of churches who act like they teach God's word but use mind controlling tactics on the membership. It is extremely sad how some preachers and some members dominate others to do what they want them to do. I have been in situations from my last church in Little Rock, Ar. where I was put down because of who I was. I've been verbally attacked by two of the church's pastors. One told me he was going to slap me if I ever so called "read" my sermon. I've been talked about by a pastor in front of the class I was taking. I've been questioned on how I praise God. I've been lied on from certain members about how I live my life. 19 years of being a member of that church. After I left, the question was raised; "Why did I stay so long?" God was teaching me even though I was in the fire, I came out with no smell of smoke.
Are you told not to question what is being taught because the leaders are honest and want the best for you must trust them? Are you told that you must be with a certain group to be saved and not by Jesus Christ? Are you made to feel your failures, your performances are not up to par for the bibles standard? Are you being rebuked for turning down certain ministry assignments or telling the leadership you are not “comfortable” being involved in such ministries? Does leadership put down others to make themselves look better, calling themselves righteous and others unrighteous? Does the leadership defend all that they do even though it can be harmful or wrong? Does the leadership say things about you in a sermon that was confidential?
If questions like these answer YES, GET OUT NOW!!!!!!!!
