ChangedAgain on 7/19/19 you actuallly came up with some great ideas. I do not understand what all Kalona, Iowa and Mid Prairie school district could do to benefit the community. But, I think the story of Shiloh needs to be told. Around the Washington county area and surrounding Iowa counties were a number of religious communities. In fact Iowa has quiet a history of religious freedom storie

Good Question on 7/18/19 the Jewel when you asked "Did JRS ever claim that title (Dr. or PHD)? That would be a bit out of character since most of the time he preached against the seminary’s and the academic approach referring to them as cemeteries." I don't have a perfect answer because it was so long ago. In the early years I do recall seeing "dr" before his name

 I try hard to look at sides of a coin or the other side of the fence. To be fair on this TLW forum discussing current leadership I feel it only right to listen to or read what ever I can that is presented by Gary Hargrave although’ he has claimed to have resigned. With that said, I am too cheap to pay for CD’s from the Living Word Fellowship or what ever corporate name they go by at any giv

I love digging deep for treasures. Here is a "gold mine" I did not know existed to be dug up. Goes to show how little of the future God revealed that could come back to haunt the likes of JRS - well worth the re-share.

maggieb () Date: July 09, 2019 There was a nice couple in Anaheim who were a bit older than I was who had adopted a little girl who was right about my daughters age who was born in 1975 as well. The little girl, named Kathrine, had dark hair and looked like Asian eyes. She was smart and very well cared for and loved by the couple. For weeks I have been trying to think of the couples

I think the story of The Walk would make a great psycho-thriller with twisted scriptures. Here is the Biblical reference to Nephilim Genesis 6:4 reads as follows: "The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown."

Hi Changed, If only we could have seen into the mind of JRS we would not be here. Having sat in 2 of Reams classes fora total of 2 weeks, I think Reams took advantage of easy prey. I think Reams was on to something but he trained few people, with the exception of maybe chiropractors, who were qualified to be practicing non-approved methods of diagnosis and treatments.
