Re: So how do I help ???
I want to give them a fair hearing. I agree with most all of their doctrine, besides the sexuality. Should I ask to see certain internal docments, which ones? What are they likely to say? Can I not ask them to read these internal documents for themselves - I am thinking about the incest ones by David and Maria ?
How could they be helped best?
You can ask, but what you will find is that the group purged
those documents long ago.
Also, don't expect them to show you documentation we have here on their current practice called "The Loving Jesus Revelation"
, where members, including men are to visualize their sexual activities as happening with Jesus Christ.
I was never a member of this group, but engaged in a friendship for several years with current members. They simply don't discuss these more controversial matters with outsiders. If you do pin them down, they will go so far as to lie about the past, or at the very least try to minimize it and say it is all taken out of context.
The doctrine of the Family is sex.
