Holy Rollers: Murder and Madness in Oregon's Love Cult
by T. McCracken and Robert B. Blodgett
God Save Us From Compromising Preachers
Pow’r to heal the leper, Pow’r to raise the dead,
Pow’r to fill the empty pots with oil;
Is waiting for the worker who in Jesus’ steps will tread,
And leave his life of ease for one of toil.
From the Reverend Knapp’s Bible Songs of Salvation and Victory
Step one in starting a church: Convince someone God exists. Easier, capture the attention of someone who already believes God exists. Better yet, capture the attention of a whole lot of people who already believe God exists. That’s what Creffield did.
Sorry. I really would love to continue this chapter and give the whole book away, but I'd also really love to sell a few books to pay the bills.
