Yeah, we just "explained everything away"... that's what we were conditioned to. We could tell ourselves... "oh, god bless Maria... she's so sweet to give to her own parents. We "forsook" ours... but she just has to humble herself to show them some love... what a good sample she is"...
I can just see myself thinking like that. Ugh.

One more thought... hey, why do the FD and MM Family disciples need to pay 14% tithe every month when FCF is receiving so many grants from Hewlett Packard, Home Depot and others?
Why can't they just give 10% like other Christians??? Why give at all??? They already gave up all their worldly belongings, their families, their livelyhoods, their minds and souls, their mates and children.... WHY ASK FOR MORE???
