This is a reposting of a private discussion thread with some confidential information removed for public view. It shows why some former members return to UBF despite their valid reasons for leaving. Primary reasons are 1) pressure from current UBF members (including family in UBF), 2) hope for change and 3) difficulty adjusting to life outside of UBF. At the same time, it also shows how some returnees eventually end up making a final exit from UBF and join a normal church.
"My chapter had two former members attend the Summer Conference. I do not know why they went to the conference, knowing the truth about UBF, unless they got fooled into thinking they have changed. They could never get me to go back again. I did twice in the past because of my husband. I am so thankful to God for the information on the web that revealed the truth of UBF, validated my experience, convinced my husband to leave, and has provided support."
