Our Stories - My Deliverance From a Religious Prison:

We often share stories and testimonies from those who escaped the "Message" cult following of William Branham. The majority of those who escape are "ordinary people", those like myself who attended church two times on Sunday, once on Wednesday, and every "special service" in-between. It isn't often that we get an opportunity to hear from those who helped lead a "Message" church, so it is a special treat when a pastor brave enough to speak about his experiences shares their testimony from the perspective of a minister who was in the "Message".

There is no doubt that those of us who have escaped have had a difficult time as we tried to adjust to "normal" (not cult) life. I cannot even imagine how difficult it would be for a minister who has escaped, especially those who are leading their church out of the "Message". Every doctrine must be evaluated and re-evaluated. As the web is untangled, the error of many "truths" are exposed and must be adjusted even more.

It truly is an escape from a "religious prison". Pastor Joe Hefflin, a former "Message" pastor, explains it well.
