Life in and after a cult: A conversation with a former member of "The Move"

Sam Fife began offering his vision of divine rule on earth in his small New Orleans church in the 1960s. By 1979, when Fife died in an airplane crash, The Move of the Spirit had grown into an international ministry that included thousands, many living separated from society in communal farms. The Move taught that members were creating a society in which people were free to hear and be led by divine prophecy. Ex-members, however, paint a different picture: a corrupt system of leadership that used physical, sexual and psychological abuse to maintain control.
