A Message to Former Followers of William Branham

When someone makes a decision to examine the claims of William Branham, it begins a journey that is emotionally traumatic. The act of leaving “The Message of the Hour” exposes how deeply impacting the teaching was on the life of an individual. Until a person experiences it, it simply cannot be understood.

This website is not intended to attack the people who follow William Branham’s “message”. The purpose is to help those who are leaving to understand why the process of walking away is so traumatic. The benefit of “understanding” and gaining a healthy perspective will be part of healing and moving forward.

I hope this website helps you in your journey!
