It is wrong to assume that Mike Peters' group is only operating in Indianapolis and Columbus. I know for a fact that he has a very dedicated following in Charlotte, NC. For this reason I would bet that he has many other satellite groups in other cities as well. This should be cause for alarm. The Indiana Monthly article talks about membership of approximately 200 people in Indianapolis and a handful in Columbus. I suspect that his group is much larger than anyone imagines. I lost a family member to this group some 7 years ago to the satellite group in Charlotte, North Carolina. Our family was confused and angered by the sudden withdrawal from family by this person. All ties to former friends and family were altered and cut to a bare minimum. All other Christian organizations were severely criticized. We weren't sure of what church this family member joined. We were given countless "allathisfeet" articles and were referred to the web site. I had seen the name of Mike P mentioned in one of the books, but did not know that the P stood for Peters until 2005. I frantically searched the web for any information on Mike Peters and cults in Indianapolis, but came up empty. Then last week I again searched for any information on Mike Peters sand Indianapolis cults. Surprise, I hit the mother load of information from this site and on indianapoliscult.com. I have read many posts of personal tragedy caused by this cult. I now have a clearer understanding of my family member's strange behavior. I suspected a cult at play for quite awhile, but had no proof until now. I have met several members of the group in Charlotte. Some of the ones I have met are now excommunicated. But the behavior of this group is right out of Mike Peters’ playbook. These people act like "zombies", giving canned responses to every situation and question. I no longer am angry with my family member. I feel that this person is brain washed and under mind control by the group. I haven't talked to my family member for 8 months. The communication from this person has trickled down to an occasional voice message. My fear is that as Mike Peters is now cornered that he will do something irrational ala David Koresh or those other nuts of Heaven's Gate. I realize that prayer is our best hope. I want to thank all of you who have helped to expose this dangerous and hurtful cult. I feel vindicated to know the truth. I may never get my loved one back, but I am confident that together we can make a difference by preventing others to join Mike's group. "Willie"
