Spiritual Abuse in YWAM - Facebook Group

There is now a Facebook group I started, "Spiritual Abuse in YWAM". It is a private group, but anyone can join, as long as the reason is NOT to say how great YWAM is! There are currently 37 members who experienced abuse in YWAM from many bases around the world. If you are thinking of going into YWAM or are a victim of spiritual abuse due to YWAM, please join! Aloha, Joey UPDATE: As of 7 April, 2013, there are now 52 members!

Joey,
I hate WYAM.I was a part of one in Indiana in the early 80's.It screwed up my life.I have never been the same.There are times when I have been successful,but the guilt crap drags me down again.I was on valium for a year with panic attacks.Before WYAM I had the usual anxiety everyone else has dealing with life.If I had to do it over again I would have gone to a Baptist or non-pentecostal church where people are normal and do not believe a bunch of extra garbage.I got saved in an assemblies of god church and a lot of people from that church ended up in WYAM. WYAM sucks!!! There needs to be a documentary done on this evil controlling cult!!!!

Joey,
What is sad is that in my zeal when I was young, instead of going to WYAM I could have attended Oral Roberts University.Even though I don't agree with everything they teach ,it is an environment where they build you up,encourage you.They teach that god is good,something good is going to happen to you.John and Joel Osteen both attended O.R.U.All YWAM does is tear dowm and attack your self-esteem.

Joey,
Type in YWAM survivors, my WYAM horror story, and you will find tons of angry ex-YWAM er testimonies.

Joey,
I believe the teaching in YWAM is pure BULLSHIT!!! It is not biblical. If you want to go borderline insane or all the way insane go attend a DTS.No mainline church believes any of this garbage taught in YWAM.I have PTSD because of this cult.WARNING!!! stay away from this toxic group.

Joey,
i know a gal in this area that has been friends with a family that has had 2 people go to YWAM, a brother and a sister.She says that "YWAM really messed up the sister" but she keeps going back.When she returns from a DTS she starts drinking like crazy. The brother was not so lucky he commited suicide right after he attended a DTS.
