Tax evasion is thought to be occurring by leader Jose Luis. Research is being done into the owners of certain properties that are said to have been deeded by the church to Jesus' relatives and Jesus himself. The church is able to get significant tax breaks when purchasing said properties. Jesus has also used church donations to fund his gambling habit. Preying on the hopes and kindness of people to pay for his empire and false government.

Thought
Control
1. Need to internalize the group's doctrine as "Truth"
  a. Map = Reality
  b. Black and White thinking
  c. Good vs. evil
  d. Us vs. them (inside vs. outside)

2. Adopt "loaded" language (characterized by "thought-terminating clichés"). Words are the tools we use to think with. These "special" words constrict rather than expand understanding. They function to reduce complexities of experience into trite, platitudinous "buzz words".

3. Only "good" and "proper" thoughts are encouraged.

Requiring members even those who are at or below the poverty line to forgo paying their mortgage/rent or any other bills in order to pay the required 20% to the church. He has already had one false Doomsday claim fall apart in June, 2012, yet he is still preaching his nonsense and collecting his cheques.

Emotional
Control
1. Manipulate and narrow the range of a person's feelings.

2. Make the person feel like if there are ever any problems it is always their fault, never the leader's or the group's.

3. Feeling-stopping. Like thought-stopping, this is the automatic suppression or blocking of feelings that are not acceptable by the cult identity- such as feeling "homesick" or feeling "depressed" or feeling "resentful".

4. Excessive use of guilt
  a. Identity guilt
    1. Who you are (not living up to your potential)

6. Extremes of emotional highs and lows.

  b. Terrible consequences will take place if you leave: "hell"; "demon possession"; "incurable diseases"; "accidents"; "suicide"; "insanity"; "10,000 reincarnations"; etc.
  c. Shunning of leave takers. Fear of being rejected by friends, peers, and family.
  d. Never a legitimate reason to leave. From the group's perspective, people who leave are: "weak"; "undisciplined"; "unspiritual"; "worldly"; "brainwashed by family, counselors"; seduced by money, sex, rock and roll.

Members must call their leader Jesus or Daddy or they will be excommunicated and no longer able to communicate with their family members. Claiming he has come to establish the Government of God on earth.
