I am married to a victim of the Church of Christ. She has escaped, yet her dad remains a preacher. Sometimes I surf around your site and others to remind myself just how real the lies are but also pray for the victims who believe this garbage.
You said: "Loneliness as a "single" may be the price he has to pay to be acceptable to God and to gain eternal life" ["Living With Guilt" by Dan Gatlin].
And you will be accountable for these words. The shame, the guilt, the lies, and the deceit of your cult are being exposed one email at a time. One visit, one phone call, one prayer, and the power of the Holy Spirit to break the bonds you create. You, sir, are a liar and a false teacher. No price will ever be paid by any man to be acceptable to God or to gain eternal life. Jesus Christ paid it once for all and He will not be mocked. He did it for you too. Accept his grace. You can try to pay your own way, it's your choice.
I am praying that your favorite food will make your stomach turn and you will not sleep until your heart turns. It will happen slowly, but it will happen. Then, you'll remember this email.
""And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery." His disciples said to Him, If such is the case of the man with his wife, it is better not to marry." But He said to them, "All cannot accept this saying, but only those to whom it has been given: For there are eunuchs who were born thus from their mother's womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it"" (Matthew 19:9-12).
