The best way to help the next generation to keep them from being involved in the cult and wasting their life. One of the few things I am proud of during my tenure in TLWF is I stood my ground in resisting TLWF leaders from taking control of my children's lives. I also intervened with a few young adults in our church, steering them away from Rick and activities at the living word building.
Again, I think you're sincere in your effort to persuade people here to open up to TLWF, but you're misguided. If you personally believe they are operating in good faith, it's your choice to take them up on this offer. But you shouldn't condemn others who sense another con game at play, giving their very long histories in this organization. I believe Puddington, KBoy, Onion, GoingRogue, Larry etc. spent more than 30 years there. It's certainly enough time to form a strong opinion of the motivation of the leadership--Gary being the principal one.
p.s. I only spent 21 years in the organization.
