Sell All and Give to Me

The overseers hold the belief that for someone to be able to preach on their staff, a person must sell all and give to them. Gathering money this way is a prominent mark of a cult. Overseers believe that taking all the money is even more important than check to see if this new preacher even knows the gospel of Jesus Christ.

When I was 18, I thought God was calling me to become a worker. I "offered for the work" at Manhattan, Montana convention in 1989. Later that year, the older worker in our field, Everett Swanson, confirmed that I would be "going out into the work" that year. I was instructed to sell everything and bring the money to convention. When I arrived at the convention grounds, I was met by Stanley Sullivan, the older worker running the convention, who said ~"Did you bring your money? You can give it to me." I said, "Yes, but I thought I was supposed to give it to the poor". He said , "I'm poor so you can give it to me."

Before I became a worker, nobody asked me whether I even knew the gospel of Jesus Christ (I didn't and didn't understand it). Their chief concern was whether I had sold everything and brought it to the convention grounds.

There you have it, my witness: the overseers care more about gathering money from new workers than they do about whether the gospel is preached. The overseers teach and practice: "Sell all and give it to me."

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
