Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV

Artful Dodger - On the Felonious Founder of Faithless Forgiveness

I don't justify the Walther kidnapping but ...  I knew about it from the time I was at the seminary (1970s).  So there was no attempt to hide that fact then (I think it came up in Zion on the Mississippi.  I also was aware of Stephan's previously being accused of womanizing.  Of course, the assumption was of his innocence.

I agree though that Stephan was running a small cult.  This is probably the real reason they were wondering about the reality of their calls and church after Stephan left.

I believe the children wanted to leave with the Saxons so the "kidnapping" was more of assisting runaways than what we would call kidnapping - not that that justifies it.


GJ - That would make a good defense - "The kids wanted to go to America, so my brother and I took them from our father's parsonage while he was deathly ill. Sure, we had to hide the children, because the police were trying to get them back. I wanted to be like Jonah, so I hopped the first ship out of town. God vindicated me by sinking the one I would have been on."

As one sales manager said, "Any excuse will do."
