It's not clear to me have TFI can be come a "mainstream" church with all their idiosyncratic doctrines and culture. Are they giving up communcal homes altogether? How do they unload all their baggage, and I don't mean just what comes from the Berg era. In the last 20 years they've come up with a lexicon of spirit helpers, calling on keys, Loving Jesus, and a new king and queen.
I can't imagine the group of devoted adherants who identifies with their king and queen disbanding or the leadership agreeing to cut them off. Zerby believes she is God's appointed end-time prophetess, chosen from the foundation of all creation for her place in salvation history. That kind of narcissism doesn't let go of followers. Even if she doesn't need their money, who would she be without them?
I vote for a combination of both options, which LTE described as "fizzle out like a wet fart."
