yeah, they're still going but i'm pretty sure they keep stuff on lthe downlow. however, a man named Aaron keeps up with them more than i do. i'm trying to think how to connect y'all. oh, i'll ask him to respond to this thread. honestly, i don't know anything nor do i want to. but Aaron will know more. so hold tight.

good for you semi-open mind. I think some want to believe it's true even when it's been pointed out & proven time & time again that it's not. I'm glad for whatever reason you weren't sucked in.

"when prophesy fails" It was written in 1956 but it is still the classic academic study on the effect of failed prophecy. The coauthor of the book, Leon Festinger, first coined the phrase “cognitive dissonance” as his way of defining the affect he documented as part of this fascinating study. Festinger’s team of researchers actually infiltrated one group to record a first-hand accou

QuotebrakuWhat would you guys suggest to be the best way to approach someone about getting out of the Trumpet Call of God. I went to high school with this kid, didn't really ever hang out with him besides being on a minor league baseball team with him maybe once. Anyway, I am friends with him on facebook. I noticed all of his posts about God and everything, all coming from the Trumpet Call o

@ micheleu! it is very sad that they have to be separate from those who don't believe in the letters or the prophet. u can find so many instances in scripture where jesus came to restore not condemn he came to love not destroy or divide he came to save not separate he came for grace not law. well, since they are so entrenched with the "letters", the holy bible doesn't have the

QuoteSelehSelehWhat is commonly practiced in this group is called "shepherding" or "discipleship" this is thoroughly explained in 'Twisted Scriptures' basically one person or a few people are giving a ranking of authority e.g. Jayse, Trent, Amy C. or any of the young men crowned as one of the 144,000. They are appointed by the leader or 'prophet' as a disci

@LLG that is a beautiful picture of Christ and his love and acceptance of us. Thanks for sharing that! @SalehSaleh in Philippians 2:13 13for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. The Bible tells us that God works in us to give us both the will and ability to perform what He desires. It is God who removes the old want to’s and gives us new ones. And He even gives

QuoteSalehSalehAnd then when I got into the letters/ group it was like Timothy was standing in-between me and Jesus, I couldn't go around Timothy, or over him, or under him, but I had to go through him and I felt like he was blocking me from getting to Jesus(not intentionally, but metaphorically), and my relationship with Jesus became one of fear and withdrawal and I became dependent on Timo

Some interesting cult facts and true stories A cult is a group with an authoritarian structure and established, rote methods for stopping thoughts, which centers to the exclusion of other activities on the goals and desires of the group's leader or leaders. This separates cults from "normal" religions, political affiliations, and belief systems which, although perhaps sharing

Important Techniques of Mind Control * Group pressure: Discourages doubts and reinforces the need to belong through the use of child-like games, singing, hugging, touching or flattery. Enhance their need for recognition by telling them "You just never tried hard enough", or if they threaten to quit, "You were never truly committed enough anyway", works very well. * Isol

Profile of Cult Leaders 1. Glibness/Superficial Charm Glibness is a hallmark of psychopaths. They are able to use language effortlessly to beguile, confuse, and convince. They are captivating storytellers. They exude self-confidence and are able to spin a web that intrugues others and pulls them into the psychopath's life. Most of all, they are persuasive. Frequently they have the capa

There are other ppl besides timothy who are claiming they know the rapture is coming this year or by the end of the next. Why is that? Why is God allowing this to happen? i've prayed alone with prayer partners al

@salehsaleh thnx! Mine is clearer but I still need to work on getting it back to empty. I want to say that today realized that I because I'm human stepped out of where He wanted me to do. I need to focus on changing myself & quit taking the log out of Trent's eye. I was knocked off balance by possibly the enemy & instead of being consistent & sticking to God's plan
