We were the chosen ones

I grew up in a sect that had lost knowledge of its history and developed a "one true church" status that seemed legitimate to myself and other members.

We were the only ones who were going to heaven. Of course there was quiet discussion amongst adult members about whether or not this was true — and questions between adult members and the pastors. But it was generally discreetly accepted. We were the chosen people.

Of course from the outside that seems absurd now. But that was the reality then.
