A few more: Posted by: changedagain Date: September 30, 2019 11:15AM I doubt there was even one person in Walk/TLWF history that openly disagreed with John or G & M and retained any respect or standing within the church. Can anyone point to an example? If not, that shows how ludicrous the concept of confirmation was within the fellowship...at least when applying it to top leaders. Da

Not quite the inspirational Labor Day story I hoped to share today. That said, it did end on a positive note, with the author 'Aleutian' having a 'light-bulb moment" that presumably led him to leave the fellowship. It's all good.

"Always thinking I needed to work harder...give up more" That's a recurring theme on the various forums discussing this cult.

Continuing to serve cult leaders should not be considered "going forward." That's the warped mindset someone who has been robbed of self-esteem by long term exposure to the "living word." Those who chose to leave the cult, creating the opportunity to live a much healthier life--which includes the freedom to make their own decisions--are the ones going forward. They'

Three massive egos demanding absolute obedience from members of the fellowship 24/7. It was hard not to notice that when things didn't go their way, each one would yield to a 'bad spirit'...and spin it, of course, as God's righteous anger. Such a delight. :) Reep wrote: Also, for the record, John Robert Stevens never in his life was anything even remotely resembling a &qu

You have an electric guitar? Yeah, I just bought it. Have you played it yet? No, right now I'm thinking about a song. If I think about it, I'll be able to play it. What song? Layla. I'm going to play both Eric Clapton and Duane Allman's parts at the same time--much better than they played it. Alright, this should be interesting. Go for it. (7 minutes

What do you think of when you hear the phrase 'dead weight?' A 'living word' brought by Gary Hargrave. It's such a relief no longer being subjected to that!
