Rico did an overview of the 9/7 Corps Night.
We are still continuing in the scrapbook of Rev. Martindale's heart.
Rev. and Mrs. Adams back
here from UK for Corps
Night, on their way to New
Zealand. They had to do some cleaning out. A
committed few can make it happen.
During Corps Nights the Interim and Practicum Corps are sitting behind the
in-residence Corps. Rico and Robin are working now with the Interim and

Dire Needs Index
What were the 7% of the Corps doing that were not hooked up for Corps Night?
First two PFAL classes run this year were by: Pat Bloom and Stephen Titsworth.
States read that had 100% participation for Corps Night. Michigan was the largest with 44 Way Corps.
The three closest states indicated the worst attendance.
Joe Coulter commented to LCM that, "Doc Higgins was the original dial-in
for the teaching of the Word." Her hunger for the Word is what the Corps
ought to have.
The Trio are making a trip to Venezuela
for their National Twig Coordinator meeting with about 500 people. The trio
will visit Puerto La Cruz, Merida and Caracas. The will be home
by Friday, September 23. Rev. Hitschfeld will go with them. This will be a
great learning experience for the Trio and for Jorge.
The anniversary letter is now in the mail. It is the next level of attack on
Operation Homo Purge. It is handled in writing now for the entire ministry. The
fight is not over with. The Corps is taking it on.
Since the Rock, there have been over 100 homo situations smoked out. Last week
two other Way Corps and two Twig Coordinators were smoked out. Presently there
are 25 ongoing situations that are being dealt with. Most cases are with
long-standing believers. That basis of lying is at so many of our Twigs.
Rev. Magnelli's summary was played back.
Mordecai and Ester were
the ones, with permission from the king, that gave the mandate and privilege to
the believers that they were to fight for their families.
Ro 1:31 talks of "without natural" or inordinate affection. Bullinger
made a note that it means when parents don't love their children or the
children don't love their parents from a natural point of view. There is no
genuine love there.
Donna got a letter from one of the teenagers at the Rock. She was disturbed
because in tent after tent the teens were having sex. We know of one situation
where four of them were having sex together. That's reason enough to cancel the
Rock right there.
Some teens referred to it as, "The Rock of Ages Fuck Fest" and
"Score Week". This was among believer teens. Leah was aware of that
going on in certain pockets.
Years ago LCM was aware of this going on to some degree. Once again it is up
to: 1) the Corps; 2) the new PFAL class; and 3) the Parents. I am most angry
with the parents in The Way Ministry.
The spirits involved in that kind of thing are animalistic spirits. Like an
animal in heat; they don't care who is looking or who is around. They cause
people to take on the characteristics of animals. It is rampant, unbridled
lust, and everybody knows about it.
The parents of The Way
ministry will answer to God for it. There is your reason for not having a Rock
I will not allow the spirits to take the Rock over from a spiritual point of
The ROA is a pain in the
ass for most of us. Sure it's worth it when we do it, but not if this kind of
stuff is going to go on.
I should have John Linder (LCM's bodyguard) sit down with the Corps and tell
you what I did to keep the Rock clean this year. He would have plenty to say.
Prayer is not enough to watch over stuff.
God is absolutely disgusted with that going on. You parents don't have the
balls or the endurance to stand.
If you can't take care of
your teens, get help. I would. These teens are opening themselves up to devil
spirits. There is plenty of the fornication stuff in the hetero field.
One woman was dropped from the Family Corps when her son ran away without her
knowing it. She was not even aware of it until her son didn't show up for
Some of your parents are
arrogant and hard hearted.
If I have to I will stand
at the Registration tent to discern spirits in the teens.
You Corps are supposed to
have your people clean.
Or maybe I'll increase the price of the Rock to $200 dollars. Maybe then it
won't be worth it for the teens to come in and find someone to screw; they can
get it where they live.
These animal spirits take
over and run them in other categories. It lays the groundwork for murder and
All the Children's
Fellowship that the child goes to wouldn't correct it. Children's Fellowship is
just dessert. You've got to live the Word and walk spiritually at home. Donna
and I work hard to know where the hearts and minds of our children are.
The statement "that's just kids" won't work in this context. It's
wrong. It's no wonder that the ROA exhausts some of us so much. Our people just
hitschhike on our believing. Some of our people want to learn. That was
evidenced by the response to LCM's confrontation at the beginning of the Rock.
Some people will have to
get out of The Way before we are going to move this ministry.
Teens are still
children--partially adults. We don't need people with that kind of attitude at
I saw this in church youth camp before I came to The Way Ministry. We were in
Falls Creek and we took a group of 100 teens up there. After two days, I got
disgusted with the situation, but even then I still had the intensity of my
conviction. . The teens would pair off in the evenings. LCM would have his
group meet with him after lunch [which was almost sacreligious at the time]. He
would take the kids witnessing. At one point after he instructed the kids to
pair off and go share the Word with someone, Richard Howe, a famous preacher of
the Bible, was standing behind LCM in awe. All he could do was congratulate him.
These are children of our Way ministry parents. I am thankful that over 1,100
of them showed up at our teen meetings.
There are no clear
scriptures on how to deal with premarital sex. The greatest scripture you have
Children, obey your
parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Inordinate affections are involved when parents ignore or are indifferent to
their children and teens, or you say "that's just kids, or teenagers.
Basically you are turning over their children to the world and letting the
devil raise them if you let this happen. Don't buy that lie. When they are
under your jurisdiction, then you stay vigilant and on top of situations. Don't
let them pressure you into letting them get away with something. "Tonight
you sleep between me and Mom."
You get intimidated by the world and big-mouth believers that think they know
what believing is. By letting your teens get away with that stuff, you are
opening them to posession, disease and possible death. I know God could protect
them, but we must obey Him to be able to expect that.
Makes me even more ready and willing to burn the tents down. We'll take a
picture of it and put it in the Twig Planner--what it is not!
That's why several years
ago I talked about no single Corps shacking up in the tents. It's indecorous
and causes the ministry to be blamed.
You parents are letting the Rock of Ages become a spit in God's face. People's
teens who are that out of order should be told they aren't welcome. They are to
raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The greatest
sin is on the parents that don't do their job.
Two people quit the ministry
last week 'cause they don't like me cussing. That's a lie. They did the same
thing with Dr. Wierwille--found something about him they didn't like so they
could have an excuse not to do the Word. Just a bunch of smoke. It's either a
cover for sin in their lives, or a lie. When people start picking on your
flesh, it's just a smoke screen for a devil spirit.
Angie Hulslander has become just as treacherous as these other people. As far
as I'm concerned, she is anathema [cursed]: backbiting me and the ministry. Her
daughter wants to stand with us. It is available. She wrote me a great letter
about how blessed she has been working on Staff.
I am not advocating that we eat this religious stuff [attacks from the
adversary]. I abhor that which is evil. They called Jesus a winebibber and a
glutton. It's like Dr. Wierwille's hooks and eyes illustration; we are not to
be stumblingblocks in the household. That I'll work hard on.
Of how much sorer
punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath [spurned and]
trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant,
wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the
Spirit of grace?
This is what they are doing to God. They have kicked him in the face; that's
what God says about these our of control, animal acting people. They are
calling the blood covenant filthy. They have done despite, slapped in the face
or spit in the face the Son of God. Their god is their own belly. They have no
concern for anyone else.
I'm glad that our new teen told us about it. Apparently nobody else knew what
was going on to say something.
This stuff is in the same category of sexual perversion. Rape is not only a
hetero situation either.
I Thessalonians says you are to possess your vessel in sanctification and
honor. The body is to be subject to your reason, and the reason to the spirit.
We keep learning. This is still a scrapbook night.
There could be specific
scriptures to back this up with our teens, but the specific mandates that you
set have to be right on.
The teaching on the tapes are to a broad audience, but there are certain things
I could say to specific individuals that I cannot teach or legislate to a whole
group in the same way.
Many things leadership have taught in the sexual categories have been wrong.
When you get emotional
and hurt, you want to legislate something to the whole Twig and it's off the
Word. People tried to push Dr. Wierwille in certain cases and he stood and
withstood. Your first responsibility is to rightly divide the Word.
For example in some specific cases we said, "Keep your dick in your pants
in a WOW family, otherwise you'll kill it." That's exactly what happened
in some cases. But that guidance is not for the rest of their life.
Legalists will do that.
It puts a yoke on someone that they cannot bear.
What you tell your 16-18 year old son, will it be the same thing you'll tell
him at 25? If it is, I'd say you're off the ball to try putting a mandate on
What are you going to do,
cut it off? sew it up? God put those godly sexual drives [that sexual passion]
in us when He made us.
The sex is not evil, but
the thinking could be evil, the selfishness, the stumblingblock could be evil.
When you think soundly in these fields, you can help people with specific
Teach the positive truths
of these sex fields. I will not play these tapes on the Biblical and spiritual
truths of a believer's family if people use them as a license to sin. I would
like to see that people will listen with a mature heart.
You cannot go teaching in a Twig about sex and singles. Mind your business
unless they make it your business.
I have no right to stand
up in Twigs or in a Branch and try to handle sex and singles. All you can do is
confuse people. Stay off their backs. If a problem develops, deal with it. Deal
with spiritual stuff. Teach the positive greatness of the Word in Twig.
Sometimes I don't want to counsel people specifically cause they'll use that
guidance in other situations that it does not apply to.
The greatest thing you
can do in a public situation is talk about masturbation.
Teach that it is not a
sin, and teach the women about it. With the men, they're usually aware of
it--it's hanging out there.
Keep things as confidential as you can and keep moving. Some of these things
have to go up the Way Tree because they aren't dealt with. You gotta get
someone in there that knows about it if you haven't fixed it. Ask for
help if you need it.
I won't jump people if they ask for help [context leadership training]. I'll
confront them if they have disobeyed or ignored the teaching that has been done.
For this cause we also,
since the day we heard [it], do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that
ye might be filled with the knowledge [Epiginosk- acquired by effort, exertion]
of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
You gotta live the Word; that's the reason the Corps is seeing things in the
Word, because they are in the fight. That's Epiginosk. Apply the Word and God
will teach you. Understanding comes by faithful wisdom (doing the Word). SIT
& Interpret--seek to excel. The more you do it, the more your understanding
grows, the more valuable you are to God.
The Trio will come back with new learning. They will broaden their abilities,
appreciation, scope and perspective. Jorge will be broadened in his
understanding. You gotta get in the fight and see it through. You've gotta see
it through before the learning is there, not 9/10ths to the wall. God's will is
to solve and see it through.
Resolving a sitation:
Even when you are
exhausted, you'll know spiritually when you need to see it through. Stand on
what God tells you first. Don't let your kied go to bed mad at you. That's
wrong. Do what it takes to work it out. It is not over until we are at peace
again. If you don't see it through, that's slothful--sin. Many times I need to
know spiritually if it is resolved. You gotta mean business. We'll bug each
other 'til we get the answer, 'til I'm at peace. That's the kind of tenacity
you need or God will not trust you with His Word.
Trust?? cannot be violated. A child could reject what you say--it happened with
Samuel's children. You see it through on a daily basis.
I got another report from Rev. Fort on Operation Homo Purge.
The shit has just started
flying because my anniversary letter just went out. So put a Yale lock on your
zipper and be prepared!
Fag hags, fantasizers,
drug users and chronic whiners have surfaced as a result of a genuine spiritual
It's habits that is the
Drive your mind 'til it's your habit to do the Word. Things may look OK, yet
you know spiritually there's more work to do; and viceversa. Things might look
like they are on pins and needles and yet spiritually you are at peace. The
Spirit of God will show you if you are listening.
God will never work in you if you don't have the resources to carry it out.
Sometimes I've been exhausted and yet there's another situation I need to get
involved with. If I make up my mind to just take one more step--boom--the
energy I need is there. It quickens your mortal body. That's how you gain
Reporting back is so valuable. Many times God is waiting to tell me something
else about a situation, and it depends upon reporting back, otherwise I might
not think about it. Something is not there to stimulate my mind. That's part of
Walking worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing includes: sex, raising children,
making money. Those five principles are at work in that "all pleasing."
That ye might walk worthy
of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful [by knowledge and exertion] in
every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
Every good work includes:
- renewing your mind
- controlling your
thinking and emotions
- making doubly sure
you're on the Word
- reporting back to your

somebody, asking one more question
- checking on your
At the ROA you make sure you are overseeing; that you are ruling your
house--not allowing your kids to shack up.
"increasing in the knowledge of God"--if you are not growing, there
is no knowledge by exertion. You grow by that experiential knowledge of God.
The renewed mind is freewill choice.
Lately we taped the phone operators at Switchboard and they listened to their
own voice. They were instructed to get their voices pleasant. They got very
blessed to do it. It's like when I am working on a teaching. I am always
working on it. You push yourself. You are always looking to do it better once
you know how to do something. Don't try to do something better when you are
just learning how to do it.
If you are not exerting yourself to the scripture, you are not doing it. Put
your nose into it--you're Corps.
Review: The Way Magazine--May/June '93 dealing with the homo field. Homos in
history. July/August--more history. Question and Answer section.
Corps marry Corps:
The Corps men should see
that our Corps women don't get picked off by non-Corps men. Shouldn't be any
serious dating in residence. Interim Corps should be going out in groups of 4,
6 or 8. Otherwise it is counterproductive.
There is nothing evil about getting sweet on each other of itself; but it is
best to keep it at a distance [in residence].
Put God first. Don't miss what you get trained for in the Corps. If it becomes
an emotional soap-opera, you should leave.
You single grad men
should be taking care of our unmarried women. It takes agressiveness and
boldness; dating is multi-faceted. It is not simple.
Single men ought to want to marry a strong woman: one that will kick you in the
butt if you need it.
I expect Donna to keep me
from making a fool out of myself. She kept me alive during the fog years--made
me yell retemories until I would believe them about myself.
You men should be the
head in this dating stuff. Protect our women from getting picked off by
If you have been through a divorce, correct that weakness, but not to the end
that you never get involved again with someone. Some of that healing will not
happen until you get married wth a wonderful Corpsgrad woman. It is knowledge
by exertion. You can work on things in the Word, but in certain categories you
won't get healed until you get salted and moving as one flesh. You should believe
God to marry a strong Miss Universe spiritually.
Develop godly patterns of going out together. Our teens that do the Word bless
me. They go out as a group. That's a good pattern: it provides protection, good
fellowship, fun. They learn to keep jealousies [he's mine stuff] and owner
stamps from happening. It's counterproductive and icky.
I don't mind our girls asking some men out--get to know different people. It's
not necessarily the "vice grip" on the first date. Figure out things
to do together where you can talk; where you can fellowship. Not a
movie--"Are your skittles OK? Are your feet stuck on the floor?" Talk
to each other. Share hearts.
The rule is that you
don't go to the extreme in any category. Men, protect and bless our women,
whatever that means to you. Who else are you going to talk to? Stay careful of
staying up late.
Rock of Ages Improvements:

Camper's Supply sales
down 13% $ 31,000 $ 27,000
Lost and Found--one third
These improvements, however, do not negate the need to address these things
We need to change the policy on lost and found items here. Usually we try to
restore people's lost goods to them. It's a lot of work. From now on, if you
lose something at the Rock, you write to us when you know it's missing. Two
weeks after the Rock it's gone; it's ours; finder's keepers. Exceptions will be
with very valuable items. The junky stuff we will throw away or give to Good Will.
It was encouraging to see our people's response about our children. It shows
they want to be told and instructe. It would be bettr if they nad no Bible than
to have someone incapable of teaching the Word. There would be more rewards for
them to use their common sense.
When we said that someone was always to be with the children, that they wwere
to be supervised--they were on it the next day. Most people take better care of
their dogs and cats than they do their kids. That's inordinate affection.

In most cases the
spiritual suspicion has been on the money.
"Effeminate" deals with spiritual characteristics. Don't get it mixed
up with the physical. For example, in Europe
it is considered OK for men to go arm in arm. A man might have an effeminate
characteristic here and there, but that is not evil. That's one way you keep
your people in check too. Effeminate is a mental weakness. With women, they at
times have "masculine chaaracteristics". Men say they have their
"feminine side"--that's the rap in culture to say they are tender.
You cannot get wrapped up in worldly definitions.
Friday night of the ROA the ABS was higher than it has been at any ROA. You
cannot tell me it's the WOW program that gets people to give. That's what
helped me get the green light to write that anniversary letter.
With one of these homo
folks, John Linder told him to act or leave; take a swing or get out. Basically
he invited him to attack him. That intimidated the spirit. That is not
necessarily a retemory you want to have when you are dealing with this devil
