The madness and magic of religious indoctrination
One woman’s incredible journey
What if you were given a recipe with a complete list of ingredients and told that it was full proof? As long as you didn’t deviate from the instructions, you would have a perfect result.
That’s what the author of Firing God, Cheryl Abram thought.
Growing up as a devout Christian, she was determined to follow the recipe for salvation to a T, and she did, but rather than the promise she was told she would receive, she found herself in a life of tumult and confusion; missing the mark on many levels. However, in this process was the trigger for an unexpected journey that changed her perspective in ways like none other.
But first it took an honest confrontation with God…
I just had to tell the truth. [Honesty] was all I had left in my arsenal. – Cheryl Abram

About Cheryl in her own words:
As a writer, I’ve found my voice. This is one way I show up in the world and join in the chaotic symphony that is life. The frustrating part about writing is there aren’t enough words to capture all I want to say. There aren’t enough symbols to represent all that I see. Knowing that my words are is not needed (because it’s already known) takes the pressure off but it does nothing to assuage the desire to share my voice. I’ll just do the best I can with what I have.
Believing what I say is not necessary. That’s not what I’m here for. Agreeing or disagreeing with my message is a waste of valuable time. Like the fall leaves dancing on the wind and the lone pebble tumbling down the stream, I’m only here for a moment–and I’m open to sharing that moment with you.
