Gary Hargrave's tentacles definitely seem to be reaching out beyond the shores of the U.S. A group of his loyals and officers/directors of Hargrave Ministries are in Poland as part of a tour of concentration camps etc., conducted jointly by the Shlomo's Jerusalem Center and Shiloh U - Bruce Larson, Lisa Runquist, etc. Any loyalty questions?
I still hear surprising information on almost a daily basis. I learned recently that there was a concentrated push to end a relationship with JRS in the churches, starting in the 90's. People were told that JRS was the old and the word now was from G&M and even sometimes just M. We know a lot now about the trickery used by JRS and his plagiarism, etc., but what could G&M have hoped to gain by negating JRS' legacy. They never held a candle to JRS in any area including the wisdom of deception and use of the word. Gary wholly lacks in charisma. G&M certainly never pretended to have loving kindness towards the people.
When your arrogance and sense of entitlement overruns any speck of common sense, it's time to hang up your "uniform." But apparently many of the leaders who "stepped down" are still waiting angrily behind the scenes for all the bad guys (us) to go away so they can retake their positions in the churches.
More examples of arrogance gone wild without a lick of sense.
There is no question JRS hid sexual misconduct and assault (his own and many, many others). For example, Harold Williams was apparently known to be a serial rapist in the U.S. before he was transferred to Brazil where he could continue his penis party and rape everyone in the churches financially. JRS routinely arranged marriages so men who had problems with sexual proclivities could be with a sexy wife who would certainly cure the problem. He arranged marriages for homosexual men to straight women, he sent rapists to L.A. (and yes, to visit the Blix House without warning us) in order to find him a wife. There is quite a long list. All disastrous. (Caveat: Some marriages/relationships suggested turned out great which is a credit to the people, not to JRS or G&M.)
At this point it seems easier to identify who did not abuse people sexually in the church. TLW was a hot bed of abuse. Shiloh too. Hawaii. And Brazil. G&M loved Brazil so much but there was so much abuse occurring there even by leaders we thought were so great. Mean wives and sexually abusive husbands. Large and in charge. And praised loudly by G&M. Makes you wonder ...
