Wasn't John ensconced in the Shiloh compound during the time period the mine scam was being dealt with by law enforcement (mid-late 70's)? I think someone went to prison, but it wasn't him. He was busy bringing forth the Kingdom of God
That's very possible, changed. I never heard more about the mine until a couple of years ago when some survivors shared their experiences. Anything that went south with the people's money was blamed on others. How could the Apostle to the Kingdom
with such a word of wisdom and knowledge
be tricked by so many evil people? (Hint: JRS was at fault. The others were scapegoats.)
Gary, on the other hand, simply fixed the legal structure so that he would never have to explain where the money went to ANYONE!
