Re: The Living Word Fellowship, The Walk, John Robert Stevens

Part of quest to be free from the insidious of organization such as the now 'dissolved TLWF,' to to recognize the power of indoctrination. There were years I spent in the organization where I went to 6-7 church services/meeting a week. religiously listened to cassette tape of "living word" messages, labored at 'Kingdom' facilities on Saturdays...and meanwhile, ran my own little business to have money to pay the bills and also help fund a college education for my children. And you, Reep, could top that--you and your husband spending many more years in the corrupt organization than I did. My tenure was from '77--'98. I sampled the cult for a few years prior, and if I was in a logical frame of mind at the time, would have stayed clear. And like many of us, we can look back and see we had clear openings to leave at certain points, and continue to berate ourselves for not taking them. The obvious one for me (and others), was following John's death, and not going down the path of "praying for his return." Now that it seems obvious that G & M were getting 'busy' with each other during that time period, as they were laying trips on the fellowship for lacking dedication, it seems even more ridiculous I didn't notice any "little red flags." Make that, giant red flags.
Anyway, everyone stay safe, and let's get through this present plague with our health. Also, please try to have a "right spirit." Without it, you will lose your "covering," assuming you ever had one. :)
