Homestead Heritage in waco tx

Has anyone visted there. We did and it was pleasant, and like going into a time Zone. It was nice to see children not tainted by the world.

I think you'll find some people on here who are not so thrilled with this place, if I remember right.

I have only heard bad things about the place. Looks great from the outside until you start peeling layers....

Re: Homestead Heritage in waco tx

I've been there. It's an interesting place, interesting concept... but I'd never want to live like that, so completely apart from the world. Not exactly "go ye therefore" in my opinion.

Some of the people came from Mark Hanby's.

Re: Homestead Heritage in waco tx

These places scare me to death. For one they scare me in their own right but also because of the black eye they give Christianity in general.

Re: Homestead Heritage in waco tx

Sister Alvear is the resident expert on HH, she has lived there and I believe her mother still lives there.

I have visited there, we enjoyed the food and the tours, they make some fabulous fine furniture. We sensed an underlying bondage and legalism, also question why most of the residents live in mobile homes, when they are such artisans and craftsmen?

Many of the folks came from the NY area with the founder Blair Adams.

I think the craftsmanship is awesome and really a valuable thing to learn and know. I just question their exclusiveness.

Re: Homestead Heritage in waco tx

Sherri is correct. You need to dig a little deeper.

I saw that same "nirvana" appearnce in the TV interviews with the wives and children of that polygmist sect that got raided in Texas last year and the kids taken.

The women looked like Little House on The Prairie moms. As wholesome as any Pentecostal woman. They led simple lives devoted to their religion and were VERY seperated from the "world" in their VERY modest dress standard.

The Waco bunch this thread is about are not into polygmy but they are into control. I have observed some of it first hand. Blair came out of Kenneth Phillips church in Austin a long, long time ago. Around the late 70's or if in the 80's it was before '83.

Unless they have change in the last 15 years they are big time into "shunning". They are really nice to visitors and customers but they are not seeing the reality of the situation.

I observed a really funny situation with that group involving the "shunning" back in the early 1990's.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

You have our attention....? Howard Wheeler, an elder at HH was out of Phillips, was Blair also?
