Diners at Cafe Homestead may be ingesting something a little extra with their food. KWTX reports that their recent inspection cites violations such as preparing ready-to-eat foods with ungloved hands, and an issue with flies on food prep surfaces.

Chained Ambassador



I'd like to introduce a social media account whose owner has been learning about the teachings of Homestead Heritage and sharing his thoughts. I haven't been posting as regularly as I used to or would like to, so I recommend following Raven for more frequent updates and information on Homestead's teachings. He gave me permission to share his introduction from a Facebook post.

More Lewd Behavior at Homestead Heritage

For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride. foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man."   Mark 7:20-23

Feathers in the Wind


In their defense video about the abuse allegations covered by the Texas Observer and WFAA, Homestead talks about the story of St. Philip Neri's penance given to someone for gossiping: 
The story is told of St. Philip Neri (1515–1595) that he gave a most unusual penance to a novice who was guilty of spreading malicious gossip. He told him to take a feather pillow to the top of a church tower on a blustery day and there release all the feathers to the wind. Then he was to come down from the tower, collect all the feathers dispersed over the far countryside, and put them back into the pillow. Of course the poor novice couldn’t do it, and that was precisely Philip’s point about the great evil of tale bearing. Slander and calumny have a way of spreading to the four winds and, once released, can never be completely recalled. Even when accusations are firmly nailed as false, the reputations of those falsely accused bear a lingering taint. “Oh yes,” it is vaguely said, “wasn’t he once accused of . . . ”

Homestead's Non-Disparagement Agreement

Homestead Heritage took umbrage at The Texas Observer's and WFAA's usage of their Resolutions on the Limits of the Use of the Authority of External Compulsion by claiming that the "document never refers to crime at all and only forbids lawsuits between church members." To be honest, I think the news organizations could have directed their focus a little better. Though the document clearly states that "religion" is not "an agent, or the proper province, of the corporate State and its investigative, police and judicial services" (i.e., the criminal justice system), from a spiritual abuse perspective, the fact any organization claiming the title of church would ask its members -- not its employees -- to sign a non-disparagement agreement should draw scrutiny.

Heritage Coffee

“For I am the LordI do not change" Malachi 3:6

Ah, coffee. Some people don't care for it, but, seeing as it's currently a $100+ billion industry, a lot of people like it including yours truly. It's a money-making business, so it's not surprising that Homestead Heritage would abandon their decades-long proscription against coffee for a piece of that pie. 

"So what if they change their mind," you might ask. Because Homestead considered it "rebellion" to drink coffee in violation of their dietary patterns, and they could minister to members for violating that pattern. They have not apologized to all of the people who they harassed over coffee now that they have deemed it profitable acceptable.
