Re: The Christ Family

In the early 1980s I read and studied the Scripture extensively, and ran into a few people in White Robes Proselytizing being vegan which was not a word in the early 80s, refraining from sexual immorality and being non materialistic, the Christ Family.
I also ran into many of the Love Family, which today still runs the Garlic Festable in Arlington Wa..
The Love Family persons I met were not able to stand examination of their doctrine based upon my understanding of Christian Doctrine.
However the Doctrine of the Christ Family of no Killing, no Sex and no Materialism withstood extensive biblical research, it made sense. In fact it is oblivious that those that disagree with those doctrines use and blatantly misinterpret Scripture; an example is using Peter’s vision of the unclean animals to say that proves GOD wants us to eat meat when the vision is clearly talking about taking The WAY to those that are not Jews.
So after many MONTHS of extensive biblical research I came to accept that no Killing, no Sex and no Materialism are SOUND BIBLICAL doctrines.
I still had some problems with Amen is Christ or GOD, and this can be interpreted in many ways, but to Keep it Simple, Jesus said;
Mar 9:38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.
Mar 9:39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
Mar 9:40 For he that is not against us is on our part.
Mar 9:41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
So, the claims of coming in Christ name, which he does not do he claims a new name Amen, do not concern me. What concerns me is the Doctrine, and the White Robe, barefoot, vegan, abstaining from sexual immorality and materialistic excess are SOUND Christ Like Doctrine.
Sometime in the early 80s I put on the White Robe, and met a few of the Brothers and Sisters, mostly I flew Solo, from California to Mexico to Florida to Washington, and believe it or not I was a year behind a mass of Brothers and Sister that sold their bus to David Koresh, that is where all the women and children corpses were found, I slept in the Avocado orchard in Homestead Fl. and I met a combination of both very Evil “Christians” that wanted to Crucify me or stick a .357 up my nose and I met people that would come up and tell me “I changed their life” just be seeing me they REMEMBERED GOD.
I have been called everything, by “Christians” every foul thing you can imagine “Christians” have called me. I was there I did not do any of these things they say I did/do.
Funny it is that Muslims, Hindus, Buddhist, and many others, when they see me they KNOW I am a Christian, they are not confused, they do not say Hare Christina, only the “Christians” ACT as if they do not understand, everyone else is like “that is a Christian” they say among themselves.
I never met Amen in person, and I just put the Robe back on, it is The Way, the TRUTH and the Life, and believe me 99.999% of you folks cannot hold a candle next to me in Biblical discussion, but,
For me the Robe is both a Direction and Deflection
I am weak I need to remember GOD in all I do, the robe Helps me, I NEED to remember to say “GOD BLESS YOU” in road rage incidents, I need to eat Vegan, I Need to remember GOD LOVES ME.
You folks are strong you remember to Bless those that curse you, I do not when I am out of the Robe, when I am in the Robe I remember GOD, it is a tool that Helps me that is weak.
I do not care if Amen is the Lord, all I care about is the DOCTRIAN,
Which is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
