Yeah. Everything goes back to that, doesn't it?

(To use a very over-used word) Sad, isn't it?

Re: Loved ones left behind

Christ is glorified by trashing one's family online HOW?? The scriptures call for it HOW?

Oh no. Another one. (

A Response to Lorraine Taddy
By Her Daughter, Miranda Corriz

I'm just not understanding this at all. Sounds to me like some mothers did some mothering stuff - helped their baby girls develop into women. Took them to church; taught them to dress and groom themselves; attended to their health and school and sports; bought them clothes and phones and cars; chaperoned and monitored them. You know, basic involved parenting stuff?

I'm also alarmed. Three young guys are getting these adult women who are now mothers themselves, to write this vitriol.
• What does that say about the young men's views on women? Not good. There's some serious dysfunction about women there.
• These young women should be modeling their mothers with their own babies. If they're being convinced that what their mothers did for them was bad, they won't be providing this care and parenting to their babies. Especially the girl babies.

Re: Loved ones left behind

Later when Christ had entered into his ministry, an instance occurred where his mother and brethren had come calling to him to come out of the house where he sat preaching to the multitudes, and come to them. Can you imagine this? His family (who just earlier in the chapter said that he was crazy - v. 21, see the margin) interrupting the pure words of God! They knew not what they did. Thus Christ asks, "Who is my mother? or my brethren" (Mark 3:33)? Would not this be dishonoring to the woman who bore you?! And thus was fulfilled the scripture, "Who [Levi] said unto his father and to his mother, I have not seen him; neither did he acknowledge his brethren, nor knew his own children: for they have observed thy word, and kept thy covenant" (Deut. 33:9). This is precisely what Christ did - he did not acknowledge his own mother or brethren, but rather acknowledged those about him who were hearing the word of God and doing his will.

This is so blatantly untrue that it takes my breath away. I genuinely do not understand how they can create such interpretations and still have other pastors and preachers say "sound doctrine." It causes me to begin to question church-affilated pastors' and preachers' training and opinions.

oh secondmama - how utterly beautiful! you have moved me to tears.  Ronnie was one of the guys that worked on a construction project on our property. I did not meet him - I only saw him from a distance. My son talked with him though. I'm so sorry for all the hurting families!   and all these young lives affected by what CoW has become.  Please send your note as a private message on his FB page.

(I self-identify as a Christian). And I am "old". The longer I live, the more I realize that actual discernment (not talking about what the CoW "elders" claim is "discernment") among those calling themselves Christian is rare. Many accept anything anyone says as long as the other person claims to be Christian. As an example - just about any meme that anyone puts on FB claiming it is a "Christian" belief, thought, example, process, etc.

Since my name has appeared in this thread I thought I would let you know that I am Anna Trudeau's father and Rick Trudeau's father-in-law.  I am not interested in being a part of any miss information about the Church of Wells but please know that I have been cut off from talking to my daughter or her family. I hope to make a trip to Wells soon and discuss with the elders my concerns. I have not been allowed to speak to my daughter for over 2 years.

God bless, 
Keep praying for these dear young people.

Yours for Christ,  Tom Kiser

Welcome Tom! Speaking for myself, and just as a person who lives in the area with no family involved I am happy to offer any assistance you may need in your travels to the area. I have found the forum has a wealth of information for anyone interested in learning more. As with any social media forum you have to be the judge of what is valuable to you and what is not. I am sure you have researched the group at length and know of the concerns. I wish you good luck in connecting with your daughter. I know there are many parents and loved ones on this forum that you could connect with who share your same fate of being shut out.

Thank you, Mr. Kiser. Good thoughts, hopes and prayers that your daughter will find her way back. 

And that you might be effective with this group's leadership and these young men come to their senses.
