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.
