House Church Talk - Culting of the HC movement

We have had experience with similar groups.  One group I know of requires every member to give 100% of their pay check to the "pastor."  He will then divide as he sees fit.  Funny thing, he does not work himself.  They also make all of the children live in one household and the parents visit them as he sees fit.   

This group is moving from Tennessee to Missouri. If you are in the area, beware.  This "Pastor" is very dynamic and persuasive.  He says Jesus is the head of the church and he and his wife act as the neck.

How people fall for this, I have no idea.  However, I know of 4 or 5 families who have followed this man through 3 cross country moves in the last 5 years.  The "Pastor" goes and scouts a location where they can all live in the general area and then they move in mass.   They have left a wave of destruction and heartache everywhere they have gone.

I will tell you the "pastor" goes by the name of DUKE.

Well, it looks like the Florida five moved to Denver.  Ah, a new market to exploit.  One grassroots movement + imposed hierarchal business management structure = well manicured and landscaped lawns behind tall fences.  This is far more sinister than IC leadership structure.  As I mentioned previously about the hc situation, When she was good she was very, very good, and when she was bad, she was horrid."
