The 'duping' thread from May of 2018: Posted by: GoingRogue Date: May 25, 2018 07:01AM Puddington and Onion, in my experience, the lying and tricking people was a common occurrence in the LW. The biggest concern of the top leaders (G&M and JRS) in such instances was for themselves and their reputation. Many casualties seem to have been considered "collateral damage"

Well said, Reep. Reluctantly, I have to admit that JRS and G & M conducted a master class in mindfuckery.

found a way out... Posted by: TheycalledmeJonah Date: January 05, 2018 06:10AM Hey All, I've been a lurker for many months now, and I finally got an account. I'm hoping I can add a bit to the conversation since I have only very recently left the church. In fact, this Sunday will be my first time going to a non-TLWF church on my own accord. I am a young man in my mid 20's

Bruce wrote: "My wife, Sandy, was thrown out of the church. I wasn't, but I never understood why not." "I did feel deeply betrayed when we were tossed out." This confuses me, Bruce. Was it just your wife that was thrown out, or both of you? Also, is Bruce Alan your real name? I've talked to few people who were in the Sepulveda church during the time per

Note: too bad these Valley 'authorities' didn't refuse to relay this ridiculous message about 'Nephilim spirits' moving through toilets to attack children, blaming the humble people doing the cleaning, and instead told The Apostle to stop drinking. But then they would lose their position. Nevermind.

Bruce wrote: I have become convinced that over the last forty or so years, the one who lies at the bottom of all my difficulties has always been me. So many wrong decisions and choices. Many of us that were in the organization were robbed of perspective. The highly authoritarian nature of the Walk/TLWF kept us unaware of so many other paths we could have taken. Don't be too hard on you

Welcome, Bruce. I don't have any answers to your questions, but I'm certain someone out there who reads or contributes to the forum will. p.s. I've had some difficulties in life, but I've never attributed them to Nephilim spirits coming through the toilets. Something to think about, though. ;)

One of my pet peeves is answering a neighbor's question, hoping it might lead to a pleasant conversation, and instead there's no response...just awkward silence. Like what happened yesterday: Neighbor: Just wondering--do you use Google maps or Waze? Me: Neither. I listen to the Holy Spirit.

It's been over three years now since the independent investigation was launched, and still nothing. I'm beginning to wonder if the investigators are still waiting for the Holy Spirit to reveal what happened, and the Holy Spirit...for some reason...is simply not cooperating. If that's the case, the situation is probably hopeless. The Holy Spirit can just hide behind divine privilege

ForgottenIA, Below is one of the earliest posts about Shiloh. It deals exclusively with that person's summer camp experience as a "young adult." If I recall, almost all the posts on this subject deal with experience, very few (if any) about the decisions that went into designing the physical structure of that place. It's likely that most of those who could provide you with

Hi ForgottenIA, I suspect most people who have been involved with Shiloh and have written about their experience in this forum (now at 1197 pages) are mentally and emotionally exhausted addressing this topic. The very first post here, back in 2004, was focused on Shiloh and the poster was looking to start a discussion. Of course, this person was met with an overwhelming response. Anyway, don�

From October of 2018: Posted by: Cloudwatcher Date: October 24, 2018 11:23AM It doesn't matter to any of TLWF who did what because Gary represents God. He can say what he wants when he wants--do what he wants when he wants with impunity. He has layers protecting him--because you do not question God--ever. It is doubtful that anyone left will escape that place now. Gary has it cover
