P.S. to kbyrne: I know what you mean. I didn't feel much on the news of M's passing, and probably many people on this forum had a similar reaction. If there is no personal two-way relationship, the feeling is very detached. It is based more on obligation than on love.

kbyrne: A master/servant arrangement would not necessarily produce a feeling of closeness or a sense of affection in either the servant or the master. And a master is not the same as a pastor. QuoteFrom wikipedia: The word "pastor" derives from the Latin noun pastor which means "shepherd" and is derived from the verb pascere – "to lead to pasture, set to grazing, caus

Something interesting I found on the LGAT (Large Group Awareness Training) thread: QuoteCorboy Date: July 30, 2018 07:48AM We've learned that sleep deprivation, even mild sleep deprivation compromises mental acuity and by extension, critical thinking. Now there is an additional factor: dehydration. If you are in an LGAT and *if* they're running the air conditioning cold,

Hey, check this out. Use the search feature in the main CEI page to search "obedience". Six out of ten of the results just on the first page alone are about TLWF. What a great legacy! Now tell me that there is no effort to control people. It's actually sad that a grown person, probably a ministry, has been given the job of spying on this thread and harrassing former members.

Ten warning signs regarding people involved in/with a potentially unsafe group/leader. Extreme obsessiveness regarding the group/leader resulting in the exclusion of almost every practical consideration. Individual identity, the group, the leader and/or God as distinct and separate categories of existence become increasingly blurred. Instead, in the follower's mind these identities bec

In response to the "you never knew the Lord" comment, I would say, "Which Lord are you speaking of?" Larry, great idea about the tithes and offerings! Yes, the abuse is so destructive. I believe that most who have left carry

The following excerpt seems pertinent to this conversation. My sense of meaning has become the family that I nearly lost by cutting myself off from them while in this exclusive, high-demand group.

Just in case the people in charge never thought about this before, children need to obtain a work permit for both paid and unpaid work. They must be at least 14 years old. Child Labor Laws Child Labor laws dictate the hours youth may work, how many hours per week may be worked, the times of the year youth may work, types of jobs or occupations they may have, and when work permits or Certifi
