No one is forcing you to do otherwise. If you choose to believe 'the joker' you know, and toss aside most, if not everything you read here that doesn't seem credible to you, that is fine. If you're confident the Spirit will lead you into the truth, you obviously do not need to be persuaded one way or another. Trust Gary, trust John...trust an axe murdererer/disembodied spirit if you like.
BTW, I don't know who you are or what your motivation happens to be. Perhaps you were in TLWF for 47 years...perhaps it was 47 days. Perhaps you are genuinely seeking to see things from the perspective of most of the people writing here. Or perhaps your real motivation is simply to discredit this forum, claiming there is no basis for the allegations against the principal ministers of this movement. I know many of the regular contributors in the forum, and at this point, I choose to believe the accounts and observations of those I know (Puddington, Reep, Onion, Kboy etc.), than the 'joker' I don't know (Aardvark).
Don't take this personally. There's room for all here :)
