It is a VERY big deal that Berg sent money to his relatives, and perhaps Zerby as well. Why is it a big deal??

I know personally one woman in the Family who was personally advised by Berg to NOT attend to her sick and invalid mother during the last months of her life. Berg told her to 'let the dead bury the dead'. On Berg's counselling she didn't go to the funeral. Her mother was very old, her father was dead, the woman had been a miracle child born to her parents in their old age.

It makes me really mad to think that Berg and Zerby were (are) so callous towards their member's support and care for their own parents, while handing out money to their own relatives on the side. This reeks of hypocrisy and really pisses me off.

IF Zerby is handing out the Family's hard earned tithes to support her relatives, she should make it known and allow Family members to do the same for their parents. The shepherd goes before the sheep!
