“A Christian youth worker told me how he thought the cult was childish. ‘It’s like a baby playing games,’ he insisted. ‘Those people are holding on to a dream that will never come true,’ he said.”

Thanks for the link!
Yeah… I too found it highly amusing that the Christian called them childish… at least in that cult there are probably people alive today who could have seen this American with their own eyes.
I had heard about these before and at first it strikes you as really odd…but then you have to consider what it was like when Christianity was first taking off….and this cult seems a little less out of the ordinary, although no less insupportable and ridiculous.
Fascinating. John Frum. As in “John from America.” Does that make the United States the holy land?
Of course the US is the holy land….just ask George W.
He is wise beyond human comprehension
Yeah. He wears that W like a crown.

I currently have the book on bid at e-bay. If I can get out of paying full price for a hardcover book….I’m cheap.
This is by far the most hilarious part
“A Christian youth worker told me how he thought the cult was childish. “It’s like a baby playing games,” he insisted. “Those people are holding on to a dream that will never come true,” he said.”
Its like the old joke:

A boomerang comes back.
