If someone you love is trapped in an abusive church, then chances are that your love for them is compelling you to want to get them out. If that’s the case, then kidnapping them and taking them to a deprogrammer is probably not a good idea since it is not legal, and it can make them want to stay more. What you need instead is a strategy and understanding of what they are thinking.
