"As people here can see, I get my timeframes messed up, it was a long time ago!"

No problem, TH. It eventually happens to all us, to one extent or another. Lately, my wife is insisting that I did not fight in the Battle of the Bulge during WW2 and awarded the Purple Heart. It's sad always having to correct her :)

Thanks, TH. Glad you are chiming in. JRS was indeed controlling people from the very beginning. It took some of us a very, very long time to realize this.

Is this accurate? If not, please correct whatever is errant:

JRS was born August 7, 1919 and died on June 4,1983 at the age of 63. He would have been 22 when our country entered WW2 and approx 32 when he started the South Gate church, the first in The Walk, sometime in 1951.

Yes--a very, very long time. But we did come to the realization.

The more deconstruction of the JRS-mystique that occurs, the less substance there seems to be.

He apparently ventured to a far off land (Los Angeles) and came back playing a different tune, one that promised bigger returns-on-investment that some bought into while others kept their distance.

The various liberties the Stevens men took with the ladies is indeed a major chink in their 'spiritual' armor, which when forwarded into the JRS-era, was normalized on a new level, both personally, and with other Walk ministries of the day who took advantage of the situation.

The results of this unfortunate paradigm fill these pages . . .

Wow, I had no idea JRS was that old. I would have never guessed it when I saw him! Seriously my only hope for being here on this forum, is to bring any light that I can to fill gaps in maybe, and to have gaps filled in for me! My hope is there will be a mass healing of everyone who has fallen victim to all this insanity brought on bu JRS in the Kalona, Washington, Iowa , area! I had absolutely no idea that when I met him in 69 in TLW church in Washington, that he had been anywhere but he was destined for California, and that's when I met Bowman and monty soon after up at Enos's farm! I realize this might not be the place to speak of certain things, I don't know how it works in here but I worked with a lot of addicts in programs, and I wasn't allowed to try to "fix" people! So I assume this is the same here in the forum! Anyone can feel free to pm me with matters not wanted to be made public! I love you folks God Bless!

I don't see that you have stepped out-of-bounds anywhere, in fact, your input is exactly what this forum is for.  Your perspective is unique, being one to have viewed us swimming in a 'fishbowl of fantasy', while you were smart enough to not jump in.

We will add your wishes to ours, hoping for healing to come to all who have suffered.

As a footnote..I might suggest that there are many "hidden" things we all don't know about JRS. It is apparent to me, this is the case as I learn more about how the walk evolved! Thank you all for your patience as I muddle through this stuff

Welcome to our 'muddling through this stuff' discussion group, TH. :)

BTW, one thing I am really encouraged by is that not one person has expressed sympathy for Gary after receiving the news that he has been pruned from the tree.
There seems to be a solidarity here about having the right attitude toward this development. :)
