The Blix house? Sorry, but you mix a lot of unsure young people with others seeking guidance or not, and with a woman who convinced her mother to leave her father over absolutely nothing but a misquoted and misunderstood scripture, and who overtly used her own sexuality and looks in attempt to fill her own emptiness among men she in long discussions actually despised but overcame out of necessity. Then she attempts to transfer that unstated guilt to youngsters as if “flirting” and girlish wiles were unnatural and that men were just willing dolts. Silly. Does hypocrite fit? Absent effective coercion, blackmail, lying promises and the underlying need to garner the “flock’s purse strings,” normal men and women, young and old, predominantly work out their relationships quite well. Leave ‘em alone. Mistakes are the learning blocks to a better life.
Richard M., thank you for your insight. It sounds like what I have long suspected of the leaders of TLWF. The theory of the day was constantly being tried out on the faithful as though God himself were speaking it. Girls Turn It Off was just one example. That teaching was one that stuck as dogma, and adversely affected generations of young people. It's no wonder that the #MeToo #ChurchToo movements have come to TLWF at last. It was a case of the blind leading the way into some very pernicious, detrimental mindsets. Attraction between young people was turned into a giant bogey man, with girls and women being the villains of the story. Marriages were arranged by leaders only to later be torn apart by the very same leaders when the couple was deemed to be "unequally yoked". That simply means that one person in the marriage was less dedicated to serving Marilyn or Gary or JRS than the other. These "apostolic fathering ministries" and their surrogates were arbitrary and self-serving with the edicts and ruined many people's lives, at least up to the point that those people decided to take back their personhood from the masters.
