Is it possible to have a healthy faith?   Cynthia  Kunsman says yes.  It’s from Cindy that we’ve coined the title, “Don’t commit mental suicide!”

A survivor of many years of spiritual abuse at the hands of the remnants of an aberrant Evangelical Christian group, Cindy points out that Romans 6:14 states, “You are not under law, but under grace.”  Characteristics of what makes a cult, how brainwashing is achieved, and what constitutes spiritual abuse are just some of the topics she addresses at Under Much Grace – a webite also dedicated to healing from spiritual abuse.

Cindy is a nurse (RN, BSN), naturopath (ND) and seminary graduate (MMin).  Most of her professional efforts concern the study of manipulative and coercive evangelical Christian groups, the recovery process from thought reform, and PTSD associated with such involvement.

Robert Robinson is very popular with ex-Scientologists for his work in supporting those who leave Scientology.  He has recently launched World Cult Watch. Rob was heavily involved with Scientology from 1988 to 1995, where he served in various executive positions.  His site offers insight about various cults’ teachings, delivers hard hitting stories about problems involving abusive, authoritarian cults, and aims to provide comfort for ex-cult members struggling with guilt, grief, anger and other emotions associated with spiritual abuse.
