Do you think Taylor Swift is a channel of Satan? I really haven't given it much thought. Is this something I should be focusing on? Yes O.K. I'll put everything else aside, and make this top priority. I probably won't have time to help with that project at your house, though. What? I think you heard me. #NewPriority /s

This sentiment certainly applies as we head into this year. Perhaps I should just add something like 'good luck.' :) Posted by: changedagain Date: January 05, 2021 11:54AM I think the many contributors to this forum through the years have done their best to facilitate healing, by (in part) sharing their personal experiences in TLWF...and revealing what paths they have took to im

from August of 2020: Posted by: Reepicheep Date: August 09, 2020 06:54AM 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 prob

Any leader who has produced the opposite of this statement, over and over again, should not be given another chance.

Wholly submit your lives to specific people who supposedly are God's representatives on earth?

A few posts from four years ago: Posted by: Aleutian Date: January 10, 2019 12:12PM I recently recalled a time I was volunteering working on ¨G and M´s¨ luxury home on Oahu in Hawaii.

Q & A continuted: You're not on good terms with a few former friends who are still supportive of the cult, is that correct? Yes, that is correct. But there is no hostility between us, at least to my knowledge. So you didn't recently send one of them a holiday card that read "May You Rot in Hell, Merry Christmas!" Of course not.

If I recall correctly, as the year went on there was a lot more 'fur' flying in the forum. I did not instigate any of it, of course, since I somehow manage to always have a 'right spirit'--no matter the situation. Note: please do not fact-check this with my wife.

So sick, Reep. Good thing we never celebrated (officially) Christmas, since he might have been tempted to slay one of the reindeer in front of the kids. Hopefully, not Rudolph. Sadists will be sadists. I guess this even applies to hippies. Note: Fortunately, I never had the 'pleasure' of meeting this person you're referring to. Heard a lot about him, though--none of it good.
