“When I was a young child growing up in an evangelical Christian church, the congregation was told repeatedly that we were worthless people and the worst kind of sinners would go to Hell if we were not 'born again'. I was so terrified by this, that I was afraid to go to sleep on numerous nights in case my family was taken away from me to Heaven and that I would go to an eternal burning Hell. This sort of 'teaching' has adversely affected my self-esteem and confidence for the past 50 years.”
