  1. I am so thankful for the effort that the Barones
    Put forth in their research. It was their site that and research that caused me to see that there were serious foundational flaws with the message.

    I so appreciate the spirit and humility that they presented in this interview. May Guild richly bless them for their sacrifice.

    Sincerely, Paul Jenkins.

  2. Joe and Anna, there are just no words to express my gratitude for your love and concern for your fellow man and your sincere desire for truth. The hours you spent researching have helped so many precious souls find freedom from the bondage of false teachings. May God richly bless you for all your hard work!

  3. Wow, I don’t know where to start but to say thank you for the endless hours of research that has been done here. I thought I had endless hours invested in research just reading these findings of these sites but then to listen to the voices of those who have done the research. To understand a trip to the library is much more than a 10 minute drive, to understand about the camera, the reason for buying the camera, and the cost behind it…. I don’t know what else to say other than, thank you! Where others would fail to say it, let me say again, thank you! Previous to this podcast I had seen many photo documented reports and they have gone to substantiate the claims of believe the sign and searching for vindication to myself and other with me. There is just something about seeing it for yourself that helps. As time goes on these resources are so useful and reaching out to my brothers and sisters who will come out of the message. Thank God for His Leadership, and also His servants!

    Grace to you,

  4. Joe and Anna – How can I say “Thank you” enough? I appreciate what you’ve done – it’s impossible to measure the cost. My wife and I are SO thankful for the extreme sacrifice; it helped change our lives.

  5. We are thoroughly enjoying the podcasts. We are praying it will free others. Since we read our Bible for ourselves instead of the books the Bible has become so real to us.
    Thanks for all the information that opened our eyes and now we are really free to worship Jesus Christ.

    1. Thanks for your comment! This is a recurring theme that we have heard from people who have left the message – removing the message glasses has resulted in the Bible becoming a brand new book. May God richly bless you!

  6. I don’t know if i should be thankful or not with this information, but i am definitely hurt. I too grew up in the message in South America where there is a lot of deceiving and strong firm believers of the message. Thinking otherwise or differently would mean losing most of my friends. Very Sad, Latin America needs to know the truth.

    1. It is always better to know the truth because it is freeing. We have had to face the same choice, do I follow the truth or do I follow my friends. In this case, you can’t do both. I had to choose the truth. Others have made a different choice but it’s not a road I would choose. Thanks for your honesty!

  7. Thank you for your efforts in searching for the truth. The Message perverts the truth and harms innocents as a result
