Dead Maria's "Dad" (Berg) said "Make it pay". He knew what he was doing from the get go. Berg had the dollar signs flashing in his eyes and no regard for people getting sick or hurt. Berg was a nut for stats and wrote lots of letters to warn people who weren't "obeying" his directives. Remember that old family saying that "suggestions are orders"? That is how Berg kept the written words at times from being used against him. Fortunately he left a verbal diarrhea trail (many of his letters) that were not all burned in the lit purge.
FFing and getting money for it was what BERG wanted. Litnessing didn't pay off nearly so well.
So now people in the fam. do magic shows, puppeteering, clowning etc. for money. Seeking out avenues to make a portfolio to advertise their successes? Saving the FFing for special kings and queens and "endtime survival"? Oops. Don't call it that anymore do you?
Some fam mem's are wealthier people and have spreads for weddings. Yep. It's all about the money and the photo ops. Maybe you could encourage your children to go to university and become what they are interested in. Maybe one wants to be a doctor, an astronomer or a businessman. All this can be done legit without tithing 14 percent to a hideous creature who masturbates to Jesus with her husband who does that too..
I hope your kids weren't taught the LJR. Were they?
