  4. There’s no way I have the time to get involved in debate here, but I couldn’t help but notice two interesting items are missing here. The first missing item is what did VPW himself say about his use of other people’s material? His words on this topic are conspicuously missing here. Why is that? I also noticed this crucial information missing EVERY TIME the issue of plagiarism comes up. I think it dampens a lot of theories. Does anyone remember what he said? It’s in print. It was widely distributed, starting in 1972. I’ve posted this item about 10 times here (if not more) since Oldiesman found it around 2003. Because I have to limit my time here, so I’ll just leave this item hanging. I’ve written reams on it already. *** The next conspicuously missing item is B.G. Leonard’s visit to the Rock of Ages 1985. I think it was 1985. I was told about this by a 6th Corps clergy member. What BG told an audience there was that The Way was damned for teaching that SIT was not a gift but a manifestation. In other words, he was angry that VPW did not copy him WELL ENOUGH. Also, him being there at the Rock suggests a much closer relationship between VPW and BG than we are generally aware of. All of my knowledge of this event came from one person, who is SO much a Gear/Martindale clone that he will no longer talk to me. I’m simply trying to verify what I was told. I’m extremely thankful that, although BG was not of the temperament to move his revelations over the globe, VPW was. There was no way BG could have moved the Word with the Hippies. No way.

    Psalms Project

    Part 4 of a project by internationally known composer Steven Faux and his son Clem. Steven has been setting the psalms to what he calls "contemporary cathedral" music for some years. This album, fourth in the series, has a more "folksy" feel than his previous works. It reflects "how the eternal Creator relates lovingly to his people, who contrastingly are made from the 'dust' ... and the dynamic between God's perfect holiness and human 'dustness' ..." Went to his opening concert last night, with an 11-piece band of very skilled musicians and singers. Thoroughly enjoyable. The album linked here is a bit quieter rendition of the songs.

    Movie Mash-Up

    That's it. "The Cellar" became "10 Cloverfield Lane", and "the God Particle" became "the Cloverfield Paradox." The writers started with "Cloverfield"- inspired by an attempt to give the U.S. its own Godzilla. Your turn.
  7. An ex-twi group founded by people who stood by and did nothing while others were kicked out, who played along and smeared reputations for people who were kicked out or who left in disgust, who did nothing when thousands of others brought up all the obvious problems but rather played along with silencing dissent and taking a share of the loot...... those people were the founders of an ex-twi group who turned around and made their own version of the same corruption in twi. Gee, who would have guessed?

  11. So, have I read this right ? R&R are just as bad as TWI was/are ? I know a leopard doesn't change it's spots BUT you'd think if it was given a chance at a new life it would certainly be out trying to source a bottle of bleach ?!

    Movie Mash-Up

    Well, the Exorcist was not New York, and the sequels, dreadful as they were, did actually seem to be actual sequels. Same with the Godfather, though even the bad sequel was pretty good. So, a movie that takes place in New York, with a sort-of-sequel that prominently features an underground set... OH!
  13. And you're wrong. And let's save time: Your second guess is wrong too.

    Movie Mash-Up

    Ok, next one. This movie, allegedly, has 2 sequels. The first "sequel" was originally a completely unrelated script called "the Cellar." The second "sequel" was originally a completely unrelated script called "the God Particle." After a few rewrites of their endings, they were then declared to be "sequels" and officially connected to this movie. This movie is set in NYC. One scene was filmed on a movie set. It's the only scene I was completely unable to connect to a real location, so I figured it was filmed on a made-up set;. Other than that, I was able to follow the characters in most of the movie and name their locations (although they lost me for a while when they were in Midtown on 6th, north of Times Square and south of Central Park,) The crew did a fantastic job of disguising Bloomingdales (59th St and Lexington Avenue.) If I wasn't familiar with the exact entrance the characters used, I might have been lost again.

    Only two actors who've played Wyatt Earp come to mind (although I'm sure there a many). My first guess is Kevin Costner George
  17. Thanks. I'm not going to let this one drag out. Next clue will be a giveaway, although if you take a step back, the first one is a giveaway already.

    Name that Actor/Actress (or Role)

    Pierce Brosnan was correct. My next round would have included Remington Steele and James Bond. George
  19. If I'm right, great. If I'm wrong, ignore. Name the Actor: Jefferson Smith Wyatt Earp Ben McKenna McCaulay Connor Ransom Stoddard
  20. Not sure why I didn't answer this yesterday, but Sam Carmichael was the giveaway for me. Of course, hearing this guy sing was the equivalent of having my ears involuntarily pierced. Get it!?!?! Never hire someone named PIERCE to sing. Brosnan. Pierce Brosnan.

  22. I feel for you, At A Loss. Best you show the little lad what real love is, on the few occasions you are allowed to see him. Reassure him. Without doubt when he returns home, he will behave differently and his boundaries will be subtly changed (for which you will be blamed, when he is "out of control" (ha ha)). Obviously you will have some boundaries that he must adhere to, but these will be reasonable boundaries. He will undoubtedly rebel in his current circumstances when he gets to teen years (and able to make up his own mind) and you want his alternative choice to be you, and not the street, or a gang, or drugs. He may be rather strange and act oddly at that time, and that's not just teenage angst. (Most of us had become rather disturbed adults when we "got out;" how much worse for a child?) Be patient; it can take years to overcome the terrors of abuse. Just as it takes years to "destroy the self," so it takes years to "rebuild the self."

  24. Parental alienation is very real. I figure you've already discovered that and have read some on the issue. I went through it and it devastated me for all of my daughter's teen years. I am most thankful that when she turned 20 (and happened to be pregnant by the young man she eventually married), my daughter initiated reconciliation with me. I now have two wonderful grandchildren who I adore. Even though I know the pain such alienation causes, I'd be encouraged that your grandson still has affection for your son. This article spells out some of the issues. The last paragraph has crucial guidance. During the years I suffered great emotional pain, I was convinced my ex-wife did have borderline personality disorder. If she did, she seems to have grown out of it.
  25. I get a much better understanding of why my family finds itself in the current situation that we are in with the ex way leaders my son married into, or rather current R&R nuts that have my grandson. It would seem their daughter was very conditioned to mark and avoid my son and entire family when he would not join in and be a part of their life choices. I wish the little guy would have been older and had the ability to talk to and bond with this side of the family before they moved her and the baby under their roof, but no doubt they would have been able to manipulate him regardless of age. They have the tough love down pat. They certainly claim to be doing good for their victims, who happen to be their own children and grandchildren. Our last visit the end of Sept. was nice to see the little guy! He enjoyed being with us and ran around playing and saying daddy :) but they now tell him to call my son by his name instead because he was saying daddy too much after our visit. Alienation! it is evil what they are doing. I could seriously throw up every time I have to look at Greg Lewis. His crazy wife at least stays away for the most part now when we do exchanges. She was FURIOUS the judge allowed us to see the little guy at all. She really believed she could just write the rules. Unfortunately they have for the most part! Horrible people. She quotes VPW and thinks he walks on water - completely delusional wanting to rebuild the fellowship.

    Actual Errors in Genesis

    Because they are indicators that this story is bull. People don't live to be 480 years old, start a 120-year construction project, have a kid or three, endure a worldwide (literally or from his perspective) catastrophe, survive it, then live another couple of hundred years.
