I remember a restricted tape played in a South Gate service...JRS said he realized he was looking into the eyes of the Kahuna. Yeah, it was most likely one of Marilyn's numerous snits. Sigh... P.S. Looking back, he sounded drunk...kind of like how he sounded in The Sleeping Prophecies...

That ship has certainly sailed. Plus I have no desire to be compared to King David, who allegedly wrote Psalm 51 after having his friend killed and taking his wife. What a guy. If God called that mess "a right spirit", then I have a quarrel with the Big Guy upstairs (aka God).

Blowout, I tend to agree with your opinion about religion. I still teeter on the edge of non-religion while yet holding a kernal of faith. I will probably never attend a church again. But I do believe that it is possible to have a personal belief system that is private and does not seek to convince others. To me, that is personal, and not a step towards cult mentality.

Changed: Great post from GSchaeff. "Current members have suddenly been forced to question their innermost beliefs. These are core beliefs that have been deeply rooted for decades. I never felt more alone than the day I began asking myself those deep questions about TLWF. It is beautiful to see old friends being there for each other; it gives me hope for the future."

True kBOY. Does anyone know if TLW wordworkers are considered essential workers? I hope not. Because leaders there will use people up and spit them out. They only care about themselves.

They do their best to destroy any part of your life that they feel is threatening to the "hive mind" or to the hypnotic spell that keeps people oppressed and submissive to leaders. Then when you leave broken and having spent most of your life beaten down, they expect you to remain fearful and quiet like a mouse in the corner for all of your remaining days.

TH, yes. I remember the Bless Ins of the late sixties and early seventies. JRS claimed that spiritual energy flowed from the palm of one person's hand and could be "drawn" by the back of another person's hand. He also said that spiritual energy flowed from left to right. He would have two or more people form a circle with right hand under their neighbor's and left hand ov
