The Jesus Christians is founded on two factors which came together when David McKay was failing as a news reporter.
1. He had a past with the Children of God, got away from them on a pretext of promoting them in an outpost, and had all of David Berg's teachings at his disposal.
2. He decided it would be more advantageous to "make the news" instead of writing it.
He combined what he had learnt from the Children of God with an idea that if you could get into the media, you were succeeding at something. Any press was good press. This became his measure of success.
Media attention became the purpose, even to creating several Kidnapping Scandals, a Kidney Cult and Public Whippings. To back him up, he didn't have to worry about producing any substance. He had something behind him which he knew would serve his purpose. David Berg's writings. So he didn't have to worry about producing anything, he could concentrate on thinking up things to get media attention!
Now the Quakers have done their thing, and David is threatening that they have created two angry media-savvy people in himself and Cherry. Go for it David, that's really what you have always been about anway. Not the people, the families, the genuine causes. It's all been about you finally being successful at something, no matter the cost.
Go get your media show. Every tyrant deserves his public lynching!
3. He ruined his own family and alienated his own children, so he decided to lash out at the world and go and screw up other people's families too. If he can't have control of his own kids, he'll make damn sure that he can control other people's.
]We Jesus Christians teach (as Jesus taught) that people must forsake everything they own, forsake their families and friends, property and jobs, and even their own lives to be Christians. And yet we ourselves own stuff, have families (which we often visit), and are still alive.
What is even more amazing is that Jesus had clothes, a "purse", family and friends, and was alive at the time he spoke those words too.
See if you can figure it out, Craig.
(Jesus had a good relationship with His mother, too, but that doesn't seem to get through to DM.) Other relevant Scriptures:
Luke 8:39 Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him.
Mark 7:10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
1 Timothy 5:4 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God.
You should have seen the look on DM's face when Jeremy Kyle asked about why his own children don't want to have anything to do with him. J. Kyle asked how often DM and Cherry see their kids and grandkids; DM and his consort went wooden like animatronic robots and DM replied in a soft voice "Very rarely." Kyle asked why this was and DM replied with something like, "We have had some strong disagreements." Kyle asked, like what? And then DM and Cherry went silent, refusing to answer. Kyle then moved on.
And you should have seen the "Who masturbates? Who masturbates?" bit, with DM waving his hands around. That was the worst, the sickest part of it. The gasp from the audience, then DM sneering lewdly as if pleased with himself that he could disgust the audience and get a reaction like that. That's when I KNEW that the man is a lunatic.
The Jeremy kyle people edited that stuff out for the broadcast, because they didn't want to give the impression that the show was DM's circus. But let me tell you, if you saw those clips, you'd want to vomit. I witnessed it with my own eyes and will never forget it.
