I am from South Africa Cape Town. Where I have been deceptively recruited by SCJ.
In South Africa they are not that well know since the cult has only been active for about more or less than 6years. But the growth has been rapid.
I have come into contact with my tree last year round about May(2018). And left the group in April (3 months after my passover).
Even though I have not been there for too long. I did become more and more a believer in their doctrine and ways. Because in them I was able to find a sense of community I miss. I should also mention that my hometown is 600km away from Cape Town.
In the cult as all, I was fully devoted to do what is necessary even if it's wrong because everything we do is for God. I was made aware of things I have never known before and I was able to feel closer to God. I will go so far as to say that this experience is a necessary evil because my life before was empty and God shown himself to me.
It is only after I left the cult I noticed that they had robbed me of my God. I was shown only what the cult wanted me to see. So I can continue and do the work of an SCJ member and bring in more people and money into the cult and this was something I also did not understand neither did I question it.
What made me leave was that I was told a spirit is perfect and that a spirit is assign to a person who has received that specific task. I noticed differences in these spirits.an evangelist will have a Lovebombing spirit at first and a warden spirit later.
What really drove me out is when my evangelist emotionally abused me. She was even my Instructor and when I had detailed questions I was asked to rather focus on something else. I really felt like I was held back. And I realized that the promises that was made in the beginning is not valid anymore.

As I left I had even more questions. I started to look for external information about SCJ and believed it.
Long story short. I am still recovering. I am confused and I don't know how to trust. Right now my believe is to be my own pastor and become one with God through the good Book and prayer. Hopefully God will show me what He purposed for me. I love Him, and will always follow His will. This I will only see through His Bible.
