I can relate to light777's story. Although I only saw glimpses of behavior that seemed unchristian and not right to me, just reading this account is bringing up years of anger and what I thought was "rebellion" in me. Now I know that it was my gut feeling or instinct screaming to be heard. And all that time I thought it was my carnal mind showing enmity against God. I was battling

It's really quite telling that Gary Hargrave, formerly "Apostolic Fathering Ministry" of The Living Word Fellowship, now simply of "Hargrave Ministries", is deleting the comments of his former congregants/slaves as quickly as they are posted. He probably isn't doing that himself. He probably has "people"/slave labor for such things. I hope those slave peopl

Thanks, Onion. Blood diamonds...had to look it up. WTF? JRS was quite a piece of work. Silver/gold mines, complete with his very own slave labor (including children), blood diamonds, bars of gold and silver... Then G&M and RH and crew tkicked it up to a whole unearthly level. They all make me sick.

Someone once told me that JRS realized that Marilyn was "worse than Martha" even before he became ill. It seems that on his deathbed he may have wished himself back to a time before he had created a life "full of vain striving and defeated ambition".

I can't remember the exact time frame that the phrase "door-opener apostle" began to be used, but what I can say is that it was a natural progression from previous teachings. If JRS ever told anyone not to use that terminology, I never heard him say that. If the term didn't originate with him, you can bet that he dropped plenty of hints to let people know what he wanted, as he

Thanks for sharing, PowerTrip. So glad you are safe. And now to those who won't or can't leave the group formerly known as TLWF. I was just like you for over forty years.

Hi corboy, Nice to hear from you. This subject of demands for forgiveness seems to keep coming up. Frankly, I have trouble taking this kind of religious pomposity at face value. It reminds me of one of the last services I attended in TLWF. The golden boy had transgressed, yet again. Most people knew that something was not right. The apostolic company gathered to address the flock. What words o
