The Mindbenders–EOC Relations with Other Churches

This document, Exhibit 14 from Jack Sparks’ deposition in The Mindbenders case, describes the EOC’s policy towards other churches in Christendom. Note particularly the bracketed statements:

  • Existing Christendom will not give us the time of day until we become a movement to be reckoned with, i.e., we become a threat.
  • We will bend if they will bend. If they refuse to bend, then we will take their people.
  • Those who refuse to grant us the dignity of being a valid church will lose their people to us.
