"Theres a bloke called Jarrod Mckenna who is getting some money from Quakers to work with youth - He's from a mob in Perth called the Peace Tree and, like you, his mob have been influenced by the early Friends - I'm sure thyey have a web page and might cover some of the same ground you are. "

Well the difference here is that the Peace Tree got the Quaker Peace Award and they actually DON'T have a web site, because Jarrod is very clear that they DON"T do the remarkable work they do for publicity......"The reason the Peace Tree don't have a website is cause we decided that for us it's important to serve in silence. You know, so it's just something beautiful for God and our neighbours. Just being God's people people who are know for their love."
It's interesting that these people do all the JC's claim, and more, and yet nobody seems to be claiming they are a cult. They are a genuine grassroots Christian community doing what they can to bring light into the darkness of the lives of others. So now it's up to David to work out why these people don't have the detractors that the Jesus Christians have. There are ways to serve Christ, and live in community by his teachings, that do not involve giving up your all to serve a Cult Leader's ego needs for publicity!
And there are many others who do likewise, without the "Rick Ross Mob" calling them into question. We don't persecute Jesus, we persecute someone who claims divine authority and practises self-serving cultic activity.
Read about the Peace Tree and be humbled.
GO FIGURE, DAVID!
