    Revival and Restoration

    Taxi, I understand what you said, but that seems rather unchristian to me. I know when I used to attend Church in Bethesda, I always felt that I was an important part of the congregation. People were encouraged to bring their friends, and families to services, and get togethers. But, I am not a member of the R&R group, nor will I be. Perhaps I am more missing something, but it sounds to me, as if the group isn't interested in outsiders. They want to do their thing, and not be bothered by outside influences.

    Was VPW a holocaust denier?

    Life, I was involved in TWI from 1978-1988; if I had known 40 years ago what I now know about TWI, I would never have gotten involved.

    Charles Manson

    Twinky, I know one of the women died of Cancer, a few years ago. Another woman was finally released after spending almost 48(?) years in prison. I have read a few books about Manson, and his followers; what a sick guy!!

    Admission into Wierwille's Elite Corps Program: Loyalty

    Way, true. But I would never want to do it again; once was enough to last a lifetime.

    Admission into Wierwille's Elite Corps Program: Loyalty

    Sky, I remember November, and December of 1978; I was a Wow stuggling to support myself. I also saw a lot of Red Flags in TWI, especially on the field. However, as much as I hated my WOW year, I am so glad I stuck it out. Years later when I joined the Navy, I knew I could endure a lot of Bullsh--, because I had as a WOW. My WOW year was horrible, but it did prepare me for the Bullsh-- I had to deal with in the Navy. God does work miracles when we allow him too.

    Twinky, personally I think having empathy is essential for living a Godly life. I know, boy do I know, I make a lot of mistakes. Yet God forgives me; thus I can forgive others. I can't imagine trying to live a Godly life without practicing empathy for others.

    Pen, perhaps that was a blessing in hindsight!

    WW, gee I thought Lincoln had abolished slavery. From what I have read here at the he GSC, people in the Corps were treated like dirt, with a few exceptions. I know I have posted this before, but I think I was treated better in Boot Camp, than many people in the Corps. At least in Boot Camp, you have a few rights; da-n few, but a few. And yet, I felt an enormous pressure was placed on people to go Corps. Now I know why; because it was a BIG money-maker for TWI.

    Admission into Wierwille's Elite Corps Program: Loyalty

    Sky, wow!! From reading your posts, it seems to me, the corps program might have been a scam. I thought it was a big money maker for TWI; but perhaps others feel differently. Personally, Sky I am ever so thankful that I never entered the program.

    Offshoots - Splinter Groups : How Many Are There?

    WW, I asked someone here at the GSC(Sky?), why some groups spread Caca around, and he reminded me it was because of money. I agree with you, that it's Caca, but even S--T can be profitable.

    Way, wow ! I took PFAL 41 years ago; it's hard for me to believe how young, and gullible I was back then.

    30 years is MORE than enough...

    Sastian, take all the time you need. Here at the GSC, people are allowed to heal, and grow at their own pace. If you want to "tell," your story, that's fine. If you don't, that is also fine.

    Most of VP's and TWI Stuff here

    Engine, I am not sure if this will help in your search, but I do want to mention Chris G's POaP. I believe it came out in 1986, or 1987. To me, it was a lot of Hog Wash, but you might find it of some value. In it, Chris whines about how hard it was for him to get The Word established in the UK.
