My Brother's Eyes: The True Story of Surviving 16 Years in a Destructive Cult
John: My brother drifts away. When David informs me that he has not only found God but now it is the Christ re-incarnated, I advise hime ven more strongly to get that second opinion. But I am soon forced to change my humour. He is serious. I can see it in his eyes. His eyes are full of horror, horror at my reaction┐ Our Uncle Terry, the old warrior, has warned me not to expect too much, that I will be disappointed in fact: 'It's impossible to hold a conversation with someone who is 'gone with God''┐ It seems at StMichael's there is a lot of goings on about our evil world, and casting out of devils. It is being touted as the only way of getting into heaven for those possessed. The trouble is: it isn't kosher, is not Anglican dogma and apparently most church-goers agree. My little brother is out on a limb, with a Minister who has gone mad and a woman who says she is Christ. It is bizarre! So begins David Ayliffe's 16 years of enslavement to the destructive cult called the 'Zion Full Salvation Ministry' and to 'the Woman', Violet Pryor, who rants: 'If you ever leave me, I will kill you!┐ God has informed me that the Lord's Anointed is the chosen one and the purpose of the end-time ministry is to prepare the Bride for the coming of the Bridegroom. 'The Father has also issued a confirmation: do not by-pass the Woman! ' Psychological pain, drama, control and secrecy: all were trademarks of Zion. Friend was set against friend, families deliberately broken up, and assets appropriated. But as David, the insider, interlaces his journey with John, his brother on the outside, a strange thing happens. The two brothers re-discover each other in a way that belies their early separation, and the tale of horror becomes one of enduring love and true redemption.
