Re: Vic Hall and Order of Melchizedek

Very well put Bagel - thanks for your insight. Just a small difference of opinion I have: I would hesitate to call 'Swampford' a "success story" - more a "survival story" - which beggars belief when one takes into account the amount of negative publicity they have attracted. As we well know, the fea...

Re: Easter at Brisbane Christian Fellowship

Thank you Faith for reminding us of the "hollowness" of the teachings at BCF, and how they effectively alienate the families from their loved ones, at this important time of the Christian calendar. I recall the many "Easter Conventions" held at Chandler, where we had to spend the whole four days dri...

I would like to post some excerpts from the book, which may be helpful to people reading the Streetcar Forum and seeking to understand how Cults operate and recruit their members, as well as the fallou...

Re: TRUTHING IN LOVE
