Hey Reposter! How are you! Thanks for putting up those quotes for study. I really appreciate the support.
Once upon a time there was a young man(me) who was less shorter and fatter than he is now....
Re: Berg Bashing
When I got led to Christ by a COG member, who now is out, it was everything to me. When I joined I used to get a spiritual lift even thinking a little bit that God would allow me to just be a babe or even a doorkeeper in the Rev. I read the early letters and lived with my brothers and sisters. I felt honoured, called and annointed with the oil of gladness and the spirit. In those days the Bible was first and the letters second. Years passed and the trials and tribulations that occured we all experienced.
As with so many of us I struggled with the "new wine". I fought to keep in touch with the Lord and his "end time voice". One day I sat down with a book . It was the Davidito book. I read it and I knew in my heart what Mo really was. A sexual abuser and a pedophile. He created the lies out of his own insanity and depravity. ( I know, we are all sinners none rightous but by God's grace)
That realization started a spiritual chain reaction of pain in my life that lasted for years. I don't have to elaborate, we all have been there, in long dark spades.
When you realize what Berg was and you read what the word says about prostitution and adultery and other such deviancy it becomes painfully obvious that a serious lie had settled deep into our souls preceded by a grain of truth. When this happens a crisis of belief is sure to follow. We used to be known as radical Christians now the family is known as a weird sex cult that was into prostitution to preach Jesus! I see no sample of love in this...!
I also think a lot of brothers and sisters stuck in the fam or holding to Mo instinctively know that when you get to this crossroad of realization heavy, scary change is going to happen within. Many try to prolong or hang onto what was good in the past and block out or avoid dealing with the horror of false prophecy, betrayal and perversion.
The Lord would not have said not to have anothers wife or husband if he did not mean it. He would not have said to beware of false prophets preaching a false gospel if no false ones were around. When you face these realities you have to question your own works before God. All the people each of us brought into the nightmare, all the hard days and turning ourselves away from the Word and onto the slippery slope of our refusal to see what Mo was or had become.Each of us has to come to this terrible point of truth in our own time.
I want to be able to contend for what is true without amnosity and with patience and caring. I would hope that others would do the same for the kids and loved ones that I foolishly left behind because I did not have the understanding or ability at that time to do anything.
I also will be damned if I am going to let any part of Berg's falsity get by on this board without challenge. I am so glad reposter, that you have the actual quotes. If anyone who really honestly cares about what Jesus said and taught compares these Mo quotes to how the Lord directed us to live his Word out in our lives they will see that Mo's truth is an empty fantasy built on sand.
If that is Berg bashing or an evil agenda so be it. "So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me for I trust in thy Word"
