Re: Passing of Stewart Baird

Thank you BR for posting that. I knew them both. If I remember correctly, they were part of the Apostolic movement in Melbourne prior to "discovering" Immanuel. When I knew them, I distinctly had the impression that they were what you might call "elder statesmen" and as Paul commented about others ...

Re: Forced Compliance Behaviour Post by Gillie » Tue Jun 06, 2017 2:38 pm When I was prevented from attending church and my discipline was home detention, most people adhered to the elders instructions and shunned me.

Re: Media

All Cults Are Not Created Equal You know it may be a "my generation thing" or something. But that phrase jumped off the page!

Re: The level of degradation that MCF reached 1994-2016

Agreed Wendy.

Re: Covenant Family

Bagel, yes, "amen" (which is Hebrew or perhaps Aramaic) for "So Be It". One of the things I've found is that as we delve into what Gilbert and Sullivan (in Sullivan's music) created - "Never Mind the Why and Wherefore... Love can level ranks, and therefore..." we feel more comfortable with discussin...
