Leaving Christianity in Search of the Truth

“Come out from among them and be ye separate…..” 2 Corinthians 6:17

Growing up as a Christian, I would have never thought that I would come to a place in my life where I would denounce Christianity. But I,now, happily denounce this faith because I have come to realize its destructive paths and total disregard of the true way of The Most High. Now if you are reading this and consider yourself to be a Christian, you may be feeling a little taken back but let me share with you my journey.

A few years ago, I was sitting in a church service and began to feel disconnected from the service. So much so, that I thought to myself, “did I miss something that everyone else got?” I began to think that somehow I must have drifted away from “God”. And I knew that I had to fix this! I then challenged myself to get back into reading and listening to the Word on a regular basis because I wanted a deeper, fulfilling relationship with the Father.

I began to pray a prayer on a regular basis that “God would open my eyes to see and give me ears to hear what the Spirit says to the church.” I got this from the book of Revelation as it repeatedly stated that “he that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches”. Praying this prayer opened my eyes and ears to a lot! Listening to the books of Revelation and Matthew made me see how far off track we are as a “church”.

Needless to say my church experiences were no longer the same. As The Most High took the blinders off, I would be sitting in church watching people go wild over misinterpretation of scriptures and vague prophesies. Reading and listening to the bible on my own helped to put a lot of things in context and to see the true meaning of what was being stated. I eventually felt as if I was being called out of the church. So instead of going to church on Sundays, I began to stay home and do my own studying.

While doing my own thing at home, I began to see that we are a people with itching ears only wanting to hear feel good messages about how some day God is going to make us millionaires if we sowed seed. I began to learn that the Sabbath was not changed to Sunday and the commandments of The Most High are still in effect today as well as learning about who the True chosen are of The Most High and His Name!

I also began to realize that more emphasis was put on the health and wealth prosperity than the true “gospel”. Only sermons on “Living Your Best Life Now” and “Eat the Cookie, Buy the Shoe” were of the Most High and that’s all that should be focused on in this life. Not where your soul will spend eternity. But instead we’re being taught that if you’re not paying tithes and going to church every “SUN-day”, then you are cursed with a curse and that’s why all hell has come down on you. But we were never promised by the Messiah and the Most High that while on this earth, that everyday is all sunny skies.

In fact, it’s the direct opposite. The Messiah teaches us not to lay up earthly treasures (Matt 6:19-21) and that we would be persecuted for believing in Him (Luke 6:22). He said that he did not come to bring peace, but a sword (Matt 10:34). But somehow, Christianity has us believing that it’s all about living the good life now.

While in the process of learning all of this, I wanted to share it my family members who were Christians, in hopes that it would inspire them to do some research on what they believe in. So I sent them an email explaining some of the the things that I was discovering. Here is that email below:


I just knew that from this email I would get a big response. However, I did not. Instead, I received little to no feedback. But that did not stop my search for the truth. I kept on searching.

I later began to see that the Christian religion is not of The Most High. The Most High is not the author of confusion but yet there is so much confusion in christianity; especially in the different denominations alone! Researching the origins of christianity and realizing it’s directly connected to the roman catholic church and its hidden, but obvious, rebellion against The Most High was enough for me to let go of this religion and its ideologies. I eventually began coming across other people’s stories of similar experiences and I knew that I wasn’t alone in this and that The Most High is awakening His people from their slumber.

I’m here to challenge everyone that reads this article to do your own research; especially if you are a Christian. It’s time to start studying for yourself because at the end of the day, YOU are responsible for where you spend eternity. Study to show yourself approved unto The Most High (2 Tim 2:15)! Make a conscious decision to trust The Most High with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6). Seek, Ask, and Knock for the Truth, and I am a witness that you will receive it (Matt 7:7-11)!

The Most High is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit AND in truth (John 4:24). If you will not embrace His truth, and would rather continue with the traditions of men, than your worship is in vain.

Shalom & Yah bless!

    thank you Ashley for sharing your new awakening. I truly know that the watered down version most of us receive on Sunday morning is just that. However, be sure that you are including all of the sacred texts availabe to grow as God’s vessel. Because if not, we too began teaching another watered down religion…just in a new form. You see, everyday I speak to people from all over the world who have never heard of the messiah. They have family members who have died and never heard of the messiah due to the part of the world they were born in. Through my studies of including all the sacred text, I’ve discovered there is room at the table for more. God is a big God…not limited to just our American interpretation of Him. Be careful that you not take new information that’s being delivered to tear down one thing in order to build up another up a new version as truth. And say it’s the only way to a God who is also the God of my sisters and brothers in other parts of the world who aren’t privy to the knowledge because if their origin of birth. I say travel to other parts of the world…gain access to the hidden sacred texts with your own eyes before you began downing what you haven’t yet experienced. Remember God is so vast, so huge…can we really reduce our serving to only one way? Love can never be regulated. I’m speaking of that Divine, pure wide open love that says at our deepest level, we are one. Separation is a fear based illusion that keeps us from loving each other. Study the truth sacred texts…but you’ve got to travel to the world in order to declare that you and only you hold the real truth. We serve a universal God of all creation.

      Thank you for your feedback Angela! The purpose of this article was to share my experience in how I came into the Truth. When I say “Truth”, I am referencing to the true way that The Most High desires for us to live according to the Word. My purpose is to make people question why they do the things that they do, so that they may leave traditions of men and turn to whom they claim to serve for Truth.

      As we both agree, there is a watered down “gospel” being taught. I am not here to teach any religion, only what the Word says, hence why I came out of Christianity. One reason for the watered down version does come from the American Interpretation of Him which is why we have to start over from scratch, from everything we’ve been taught, to uncover the true Power. We have to know who the different nations of the bible are so that we know how it applies to us today and how various religions came about.

      I know that you believe there are more than one way but I stand firm that the only way to The Most High is through the messiah and to teach anything other than that is a different message. There is a god of this world that many are in tune with. And because he comes as an angel of light, many confuse him as being The Most High. Thus, sending them over to a strong delusion (2 Thessalonians 2:11). There are ways that seem right to man but end thereof is death (Proverbs 16:25). Contrary to how you may feel, we are not one. The Most High has a chosen people and that’s found throughout the bible. Now can all be saved? Yes, but they will not have the inheritance as his chosen people will. All throughout the bible, Apocrypha, Books of Jasher, Enoch, Jubilees, etc. The Most High has a set apart people, chosen people. How can you tell who is of the world or who is for The Most High if there isn’t some form of separation. The messiah did not come to bring peace but a sword that will separate (Matt 10:34/ Luke 12:51). Shalom!

    Hi Ashley,
    I really enjoyed your blog. I know exactly how you must have felt when you first learned the truth or even started suspecting something was wrong in the church. I have been uneasy about the church for many years now. I would read my Bible and catch things from preachers that were contrary to the word. Not only that, I would spend days and nights in my room just praying, reading and singing to the Most High, Thanking him for just giving me chance after chance to get myself together. I would also express to Him how I never wanted to be deceived and to open up my heart and mind to hear His truths and not be deceived. One night as I was sleeping I heard a voice talking with me. In this dream I heard the Lord say to me “I’m tired of these churches watering down the gospel. I knew then a lot of these churches weren’t right. Then a few months later he led me into the book of Revelations concerning the Church of Thyatira

    “In know thy work, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
    Notwithstanding, I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrficed unto idols.” Rev 2:19-20

    I didn’t catch what the Holy Spirit was trying to reveal to me that moment. It scared me though, and I kept searching and searching for the answer when finally it was revealed to me He was speaking of these modern day churches who are leading Yah’s children astray and teaching not to obey His commandments. I, like most Christians today, believed the commandments had been done away when Christ laid down his life. I think back now when I read the scriptures how I missed so many things that were in the scriptures all that time that I simply overlooked, my eyes were blinded from the truth.

    What I love most about all my experiences is the faithfulness of our Father. He never let me go my own way. He always has pulled me to Himself and he never lets me stay in darkness. The changes in my life are not anything that I could have done on my own, for the Most High has brought me from many of dark places. my experiences have taught me to very humble and meek and I believe my troubles were allowed just for that.

    Today I am all alone. Most people who used to talk to me about scriptures barely want to discuss it with me because I tear down the lies they have been taught for many years. Not in my own strength or my own knowledge but the the Word of the Most High which is truth and Life. It does get lonely, but I know when the time is right and when the Lord has matured me, I will be able to bless someone else life with whatever struggles I had to endure, as well as to help to set lost people free. This is my passion and this is what I ask the Father for. His will must always be done.

    I thank you and your husband for sharing the information that you find. I have been trying to do lots of research and I find it very helpful when I can come across a website full of beautiful people with the love of the Father in their hearts. You don’t how hard that is to find. May the Father bless you always in the name of Yahusha – Shalom

In the process, you’re planting seeds or watering and Yahuah will give the increase! While you feel all alone, always remember that you’re truly not alone.
