New TFI Policy?

Posted by Thorwald on March 12, 2009 at 15:38:01

I recently heard (from a current, full time member) that Zerby & Kelly have sent out a new general policy on finances. They encouraged everyone to open savings accounts, invest in retirement funds, get health insurance, buy property, etc. The idea is to prepare for the long haul (they even spoke of Jesus not returning for another 20, 50, or even more years). They said that if Jesus returned before that, then it wouldn't matter, but if he took a while, it was better to prepare.

I find this an interesting shift in thinking, especially coming from a group claiming we are living in the "End Times".

I know that Steven "Peter Amsterdam" Kelly has been pushing for many years (including while Berg was alive) to invest monies, so I wouldn't be surprised if this was his idea.

Anyone else hear anything about this?
