Regarding Sexual Abuse

We have nothing to gain and everything to lose by harboring any criminal. We have documentation that proves our position on this, along with law enforcement documentation that validates this statement. Such documents along with names and phone numbers can be provided.
We do not promote or tolerate sexual abuse of anyone, especially children. We understand the life-long effects sexual abuse has on children. There is no place for anyone who is this way to live with us. We are aware of the deceit that surrounds such a person and the murkiness of such situations. These things are hard to understand and even more difficult to expose, especially if the perpetrator is not wanting to come clean and confess his own evil behavior and deeds.
Yet we believe these people can be helped; knowing the first step is confession, we also understand there is no way out of this by hiding such behavior. Such a person should properly judge his wrong. The most dangerous child abuser is the one who does not seek such help through admitting his condition.
The word of God teaches us that the one who conceals his sin will not prosper. But the one who confesses, forsakes, and renounces his sin will find mercy. (Proverbs 28:13)
If someone who lives in or visits our communities is this way we can only trust in what we are able to understand and perceive, and the care our God provides for us as we trust Him. We have every reason to honor God and do what is right in His sight. We ask Him to deliver us from evil.

The Twelve Tribes

The Twelve Tribes is a confederation of twelve self-governing tribes, composed of self-governing communities. We are disciples of the Son of God whose name in Hebrew is Yahshua. We follow the pattern of the early church in Acts 2:44 and 4:32, truly believing everything that is written in the Old and New Covenants of the Bible, and sharing all things in common.
