If you say that there is no connection or similarity between your group and the pre-FF COG, and that DM was not influenced by Berg nor patterned himself to a big degree after Berg, then you are wrong, and you are strongly in denial. That is the only point that I am making.
As far as using methods that work...I can't disagree with that. But I'll remind you of what I have said all along: I see you less as building the Kingdom of God than the Kingdom of Dave. You have been tricked into conflating one thing, one idea, with the other. You are David's pawn, David's prop. Simple as that.
