There are many Christian groups that may be doctrinally sound, but are, in fact, abusive. One can usually discern this by checking out how much power the elders have. Do they regulate dating? Do they closely monitor giving? Is "submission" a major issue? In the 80's the "shepherding movement" was big among charismatic and Pentecostal churches. It did a lot of damag

Barstool, getting people to check facts is often a good tool in helping people to see that they have been victims of deception. The Mayflower connection, for instance, should be a provable, verifiable, fact. If Diesel finds that this teaching is untrue, there is a possibility that she will begin to question other areas of her belief system. We shouldn't destroy a person's belief syst

I have read several books about the Romanov dynasty, and especially the last tsarista's relationship with Rasputin. Have you ever seen his eyes? He controlled many through hypnotism, including Alexis, her invalid son.

Many years ago I went to a "Jews for Jesus" seminar. As a Christian, I was very impressed with their presentation. They really make the Old Testament come alive.

Actually, the cult members were quite bright. Many young people who have no spiritual foundation are drawn to strong leaders with extreme moral and religious views. They are searching, I believe, for the structure their parents never provided.

Diesel, please explain the Mayflower connection with your Church group. My ancestors lived in Mass. Bay Colony since the early 1600's and were all Puritans. Did your group somehow grow out of the Puritan movement? Have you checked these facts?

It appears, Diesel, that you are in a Oneness pentecostal church with extreme views. Not only is the "oneness" doctrine (denial of the Trinity), considered heretical by orthodox Christians, but refusal of medical treatment is a practice not endorsed by most pentecostal groups.

In the 80's I had a young girl living with our family who had been hooked up with the Christ Family, a nomadic cult. They believed in "three keys to heaven" which included no sex, no killing, and no materialism. They used to walk around in clothing made from sheets, using diapers to cover their heads (if they were women). They used marajuana constantly. Their leader, Charles McHu

I'm familiar with an off-shoot of Mormonism that has a colony in Mexico who call themselves the Church of the Firstborn in the Fullness of Time. They are (were) led by the LeBaron brothers, who considered themselves prophets. There have been shoot-outs and murders in this group, prophet against prophet. Ervil LeBaron was infamous, and died in prison. I was just wondering if your church w
