I met members from "The Family" a few years ago, I was homeless and living on the streets, members from "The Family" regularly fed homeless people including me. Since then I have gotten off the streets and have a home, Im still in regular contact with "The Family" and I think they are amazing people. I think they are true Christians filled with the Holy Spirit who really care about others.
This is my first time Ive visited this forum and website, and Ive found some intriguing information on it, and my view towards "The Family" is still the same; they are simply true Christians devoted to the teachings of Jesus, who want to help people.
I've been involved with "The Family" for many years and Ive yet to see one illegal or bad thing. All I've seen is fantastic work from people who are full of integrity and the Holy Spirit.
I think the accusations against them are trumped up and blown out of proportion.
Ask them about the charges against them. See if you get a "straight up" answer. You owe yourself that much, don't you think?
I did ask them about the child abuse charges, and I researched them myself. [...]"The Family" in my area has been proven to be innocent both through the court system, and from my own person observation.
If people are concerned about this organization I think they should visit "The Family" colonies regularly to find out for themselves if they are a threat, but I dont think they are a threat at all.
In the end "The Family" was awarded millions of dollars and the case was thrown out of court, one of their 12 year old girls was put on the stand in court and told the judge she loved her parents and was never abused.
[The Family] made mistakes but have acknowledged them and gone past them now.
I think you'll find a lot of your idle gossip is totally unjustified and un-Godly.
