Take it from someone who's been in the PR church over 50 years and regrets raising children there. I wish I would have left years ago so my children aren't in the same circle I was in. If it's family issues of shunning that would ruin your husband's life then I understand that would be very hard. But if it's just the fear of a different life, try to convince him. Maybe start by going to another church in the morning and then the PR church at night (at least you won't have to listen to the Heidelberg Catechism sermon every week)! Many people who post on this board talk about how free they feel and happy and feel genuine love of Christ in them and for others. I don't have that feeling. I have family members who have left and they tell me you won't know the great feeling in your heart until you leave. It's like a huge burden off your shoulders. I'm looking forward to that day.
"I wish I would have left years ago so my children aren't in the same circle I was in."
This is what the PRC calls internal growth. I wonder what my children would be like if they had not had this influence.
