Ep. 129 Cycle of Delusion

Updated: Jun 27, 2023

In the early 1980s, several adults came together and formed a “new light” bible study group in Grants Pass, Oregon. This was a group of Seventh-day Adventists who wanted to be more in tune with God. Eventually, the group welcomed sisters Sharon and Deborah Halstead, childhood friends of the leader’s husband who grew up with him in California. What started out as straightforward bible study morphed into what modern-day religious leaders would call Spiritualism or Voice Ministry, something that the church does not support. The group fractured and some members began following a very unlikely prophet, one who led them down a dark path of destruction and murder.
