1. God is in charge, dear, and if bad things are happening to you it is because you have been bad and God is punishing you.
And so I convicted myself as deserving those beatings and all.
I hated myself and wanted to die. I had no idea what a child of 10 could have done to have deserved that but those in the 'church' told me I did. I asked again and again as life went on and got the same answer from 'church.'
2. Then there were the predestination group who said that regardless of how lousy your life was - it was God's plan and He will use it to His glory. Really? God is in need of torturing a child to bring about His good?
