Changed, I really appreciate how you have been curating and reposting important posts from varous individuals. Thank you. Onion's letter to Gary is dynamite. After all the information that has come out, I'm a bit surprised (even though I shouldn't be) that Gary Hargrave is making these outrageous claims about himself: "One of the leading prophetic voices to our generatio

Special anniversary today! It has been three years since Shalom posted her Facebook post that went viral. I'm so thankful for her. And I'm so thankful for all the rest of you too.

Also, Marilyn claimed that she cleaned bathrooms in the early days of the Valley church (CLW). That story is utterly laughable, IMO. In fact, I'm laughing right now.

Thank you Larry Bobo and thank you, Changed. I have been called a nephilim a few times (even on this forum). I have decided to look at this as a badge of honor for standing with those who have been hurt by the cowardly leaders of TLWF. Yay to all my fellow nephs! Go team!

Posted by: dbc Date: August 20, 2021 09:57PM Still checking in, Reep. Some perspective and the long view is always helpful. I think we all feel a bit sheepish about being so duped, so naïve, but we were living our lives with passion and it felt so right. The fault is not ours but the ones who led us over the cliff so cynically. We sacrificed family relationships, careers, friendships, and yea

From kBOY's WALK TALK Lexicon: Victory Siege = The heyday of Shiloh (summer of 1979--400+ people living in building) storming Heaven attempting to give God a black eye I always think of this when I hear "Under His Eye" in Handmaid's Tale.

I have a question. Whenever someone submitted something, especially during the G&M era, ministries would say they would "pray" about it or "wait on the Lord" about it. Did anyone actually observe this prayer and waiting on the Lord happen...ever?

The above stories reported regarding YASP in Shiloh are very much in keeping with what I know to be true.

I happen to have an old First Principles and a new one from the most recent edition printed in 1999. They polished up the whole thing, but I was especially looking at Lesson 39: Babylon. It was changed considerably and sanitized of many of the references to Mary the mother of Jesus being compared to Semiramus, queen of heaven. For example, roman numeral III went from "Let us further examine

Great posts from Paleface and Larry Bobo. Thank you for reposting, Changedagain. I remember quite well the phrase, "You're killing John." And all the other stuff after he died. As Paleface wrote: "It didn't help with MH saying stuff like 'I don't need you. I have to move fast to get John back.'. We were again blamed, this time for not bringing John back.
