JESUS FREAK YEARS in Ask the Greasespot Cafe Posted March 14, 2023 7 hours ago, Nathan_Jr said: Last year, when I first read this article, I was mildly disappointed that victor paul wierwille and TWI were mentioned as a mere side note, an incidental triviality. Tonight, after a more careful second reading, it seems to me Steve and Sandi Heefner’s summer on the farm in Ohio with victor paul wierwille is no incidental plot ornament. It is the critical turning point, the beginning of the end, for the House of Acts. When the Heefner’s return from Ohio, the ministering and generosity end, and the “teaching,” accusations of legalism and divisions begin. Wierwille's mode of operation was vastly different from the House of Acts. With wierwille, it was.... "you can stay until your money runs out." He demanded payment for disinformation services rendered. Generosity ended at the point of the dollar bill. If you couldn't pay your way forward, then your way forward was NOT part of "the Way." And more.... even when you DID pay, wierwille expected free labor if you hung around. The Way headquarters was run this way and so was the corps program. You paid your own way or with sponsorship money.... and you were assigned 1/2 day work projects. Whether it was sweeping the walks or weeding the flower beds, no one was allowed to sit around in the sunshine and meditate. Nor was there any encouragement to go downtown and minister the teachings of Jesus to others. All campus efforts were to maintain and manicure the grounds. Was wierwille revealing his agenda when he said (??)...."The reason the Dead Sea is so dead is because it has all inlets, no outlets."
