YIKES! the impact of this just hit me - hit me hard on how diabolically deceptive jrs was to sneak in occult garbage to suspecting Christians in Iowa where I grew up in the '50's. OMG!
thanks to posting this eye opener - my gut did know this- but I need to see the facts in back and white to move forward - not move on. I, along with all the other survivors needs to get the "ax to root" of the problem that infiltrated so far back that it is sickening.
NancyB, you had the advantage of seeing The Walk from the viewpoint of WJ Stevens, who seemed to honestly love the people and was a genuine Christian. His son, JRS, on the other hand, was thrown out of pastoring in at least two denominations before starting his own church in South Gate, CA. We were always told that the reason was "persecution", but we may never know the truth. Was it his weird teachings, womanizing, or both? Was it trying to draw all congregants to himself, or failure to follow the teachings of the denomination? Maybe all of the above.
