The Family International SEX CULT EXPOSED!
By David J. Stewart
The Family International [hereafter referred to as TFI] is a New Age religious sex cult that is infamous for incest, organized child porn, and other horrible sexual sins...
"Another infamous cult of the last forty years is the Family International, formerly known as the Children of God. The man in the middle of this cartoon, David Brandt Berg, founded the cult in the 1960s. Since its inception, the Family has been plagued by accusations of sexual and physical abuse, organized pedophilia, child pornography, incest, and prostitution. The cult denies this, but media distributed to Family members clearly preach a very sexual relationship with God, and an especially perverted relationship with children... the Family still thrives today. Its official website claims over twelve thousand members in over a hundred countries."
The group emphasizes being united by error rather than being divided by truth as the Bible commands in 2nd Corinthians 6:14-17. TFI promotes unbiblical ecumenical unity between ALL religions1, be they Christian or non-Christian. This is apostasy of the worst form!
Here's some brief background information on this villainous cult...
The Children of God (COG), later known as the Family of Love, the Family, and now the Family International (TFI), is a Christian religious group, widely referred to as a cult by the media, many in academia, and some former members, that started in 1968 in Huntington Beach, California, United States. It was an off shoot of the Jesus movement of the late 1960s, with many of its early converts drawn from the hippie movement. It was among the movements prompting the cult controversy of the 1970s and 1980s in the United States and Europe and triggered the first organized anticult group (FREECOG)

Evidently to escape the barrage of negative newsmedia plaguing the cult because of continuous reports of sexual rape and child molesting, they've changed their organization's name umpteen times. It is sickening that they would dare even name the name of Jesus Christ; but this is not spurring because 2nd Corinthians 11:13,14 warns us that Satan's sinister ministers would come to as masquerading as ministers of righteousness. Cult founder, David Berg, perished in 1994 into perdition and is burning this moment in hellfire.
The Family International is a Sicko SEX CULT
TFI is a front organization for a demonic sex-cult...
Female bisexuality is sanctioned, though female homosexuality at the complete exclusion of men is not permitted. They believe that God created human sexuality, that it is a natural, emotional, and physical need, and that heterosexual relations between consenting adults is a pure and natural wonder of God's creation, and permissible according to Scripture. Teenagers from the age of 16 are allowed to have sex with other members under age 21. Since 1986, sex between minors and adults is forbidden. Adult members may have sex with any other adult member of the opposite sex, and are encouraged to do so, regardless of marital status, as a way to foster unity and combat loneliness of those "in need". This is commonly called "sharing" or "sacrificial sex". While TFI policy states that members should not be pressured to have sex against their will, numerous former members have alleged being coerced to "share" and subsequently cast as selfish or unloving when they did not.

Truth is stranger than fiction. The Family International is a sicko organization which exploits Christianity as a means of committing fornication, exploiting children, and attempting to justify other sexual sins. TFI is of the Devil.
The cults founder, David Berg, was just another pedophile like Warren Jeffs...
Group founder David Berg is regarded within the group as the most important prophet of the end times. He is regarded as a prophet in that he passed on the message of God, not because he could predict the future. Though he frequently attempted to predict future events, he was for the most part inaccurate. The group believes Berg's spiritual "mantle" passed to his wife, Karen Zerby, at his death. The officially published writings of both David Berg and Karen Zerby are regarded as part of the "Word of God" which carries the same weight as the Holy Bible since they are considered divine revelations.

Herpes Outbreak at The Family in the 1980s
The overwhelming amount of negative testimony from former members of The Family cult, in addition to the preponderance of mainstream news archives exposing their sexually-degenerated history cannot be denied. Here is what the Encyclopedia Britannica has to say about the group...
Berg led his followers to free themselves from sexual inhibitions and taboos. For example, in a practice called “flirty fishing," he encouraged female members to use their feminine charms while witnessing God’s love to lonely men, a tactic that often led to sexual activity. He also encouraged sexual “sharing” among the adults in The Family.
This sexual activity led to problems in the early 1980s. Most significantly, herpes spread among Family members, and pedophiles within the group preyed upon the children. In 1983 and over the next several years, the group began to curtail this sexual activity. Child protection rules were instituted, and in 1987 flirty fishing was discontinued. The sharing of adult partners within the group continues and remains The Family’s most distinctive and controversial practice.

It is a shame that such Satanic organizations exist. There is nothing more rotten and evil in this world than to molest an innocent little child. Hell will be hot enough!
The Family is of the Devil
The cult still encourages fornication amongst adult members and God only knows what else. The Word of God warns...
"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." —1st Corinthians 6:9,10
There is NO repentance within The Family International organizational; thus, there is NO salvation. They not only continue to commit sin, but attempt to justify their sins by perverting the Scriptures, which is clear evidence that they are unsaved heathens who are exploiting Christianity. Although one does not have to forsake sins to be saved, the Bible requires that we BECOME GUILTY BEFORE GOD for our sins (Romans 3:19), which should bring about a change of nature (2nd Corinthians 5:17) and a desire to live for God. Genuine born-again Christians DON'T parade their sins, attempting to justify them, excuse them and defend them. Genuine repentance is the acknowledgment that one has sinned against God by violating the Law of God, and turning to Jesus Christ to be forgiven. The Family International is a sin-loving organization that doesn't know anything about repentance. Their professed faith in Christ is fraudulent.
Unlike the deceitful spin on the official homepage of The Family International, xFamily.org brings you honest, truthful, accurate, complete and contextual information about The Family cult—also known as The Children of God, The Family International, The Family of Love, The Family and various pseudonyms; which now operates internationally as a collection of charitable organizations under the umbrella of the FCF (Family Care Foundation).
Cult name: The Children of God (C.O.G.)/ The Family International
Founder: Moses David Berg, organized 1968
Overview: Don't be fooled by this one. They've adopted a more clean-cut appearance. They even performed in the white house in 1992. I was in a salon one day when a bunch of nice looking, college-aged kids came in and said, "We're the Family and we'd like to sing a song for you." They played the guitar, sang and passed out some coloring sheets and solicited funds. It took all of about 1.5 minutes and they were out the door. I didn't give them anything and thought that they might be C.O.G. I recently got confirmation when I viewed a documentary on cults.
C.O.G. appealed to the hippie generation with its message of "free" love and singing all in the name of Jesus. They are called the original Jesus "freaks"
- Flirty fishing: Practice of religious prostitution. Founder Berg bases it on Jesus' statement, "I will make you fishers of men." He says that any means is acceptable to bring people into "the kingdom of God"—including having sex with them.
- Child sex. Publish child pornography in their cult publications.
- As with many cults, much missionary zeal in America and abroad.
- Their children don't always go to main stream schools.
- 5. Charges dismissed in Argentina of child abuse and slavery.
- 6. Mind control over members.
