The Twelve Tribes invite people to visit their communities to be convinced firsthand that they are God’s Kingdom come to men on earth. They believe the only possible correct conclusion you can make after visiting them in person is that surely they are the people of God, and unless you join them, you are missing God’s Kingdom and have no hope of being fulfilled in Him.
This conversation takes place between Nadiv, acting as a spokesperson for this belief, and those already in the Kingdom of God who can plainly see that Nadiv and the Tribes are not members of Christ’s Body on earth, but have made a god in their own image, an idol of the heart that must be destroyed.
A man tries to find God in community; we tell him the truth that community is in God. The Twelve Tribes puts the cart in front of the horse, though deceitful because of the appearance of going somewhere. It has no traction in the Kingdom of God, however. Allured by an illusion of Heaven and promises of earthly security, many are left shipwrecked.
Jesus said that if you only love those who love you, you are no different than other sinners. If you lay down your life to get, you are not laying down your life as He did, and as He requires of those who follow Him. A woman from the Twelve Tribes asks us for whom we are laying down our lives. This correspondence gives the answer to this critical question, not only for us, dear reader, but for the questioner, the Twelve Tribes, and even for you.
Honcho David Derush is called in by Diane to prove that we are wrong – the Twelve Tribes are God’s salvation on earth, contrary to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We answer the arguments David presents to prove the Tribes’ divine mission, with Scriptural specifics that prove the opposite is true. The Twelve Tribes is a man-made invention – idolaters and promoters of the false religion they see in everyone else. That makes them hypocrites, too.
