Growing up I felt I got lied to a lot by the American Church. Everyone was pretty. No one walked into church having marriage issues. No one had porn or alcohol issues. Nope. We were all pretty because what would people think if we actually came clean about where we struggled? Wouldn’t that “blow our witness” to a lost world.
Due to these wounds and struggles I found myself a pastor in a 12 Step program with other addicts. And what I found by coming clean was amazing…..Healing.
