I will kill you, she said, for I am God!

David and John Ayliffe

John: My brother drifts away
It seems at St Michael’s there is a lot of goings on about our evil world, and casting out of devils. It is being touted as the only way of getting into heaven for those possessed.

The trouble is: it isn’t kosher, is not Anglican dogma and apparently most churchgoers agree. My little brother is out on a limb, with a Minister who has gone mad and a woman who says she is Christ.

It is bizarre!

So begins David Ayliffe’s 16 years of enslavement to the destructive cult called the ‘Zion Full Salvation Ministry’ and to ‘the Woman’, Violet Pryor, who rants:

If you ever leave me, I will kill you!

“God has informed me that the Lord’s Anointed is the chosen one and the purpose of the endtime ministry is to prepare the Bride for the coming of the Bridegroom.…The Father has also issued a confirmation: do not by-pass the Woman!’

Psychological pain, drama, control and secrecy: all were trade marks of Zion.  Friend was set against friend, families deliberately broken up, and assets appropriated. But as David, the insider, interlaces his journey with John, his brother on the outside, a strange thing happens. The two brothers re-discover each other in a way that belies their early separation, and the tale of horror becomes one of enduring love and true redemption.

Fiona Farley is the name we have used for a member of Zion Full Salvation Ministry who received particularly bizarre treatment from the paranoid Violet Pryor when she feared exposure for her exclusive claims when Fiona’s husband said he was not a believer.  The real Fiona sent David a note after she read the book that included her story.  The letter is here:

7th October 2009

Dearest David,

Read your book.  Overwhelmed by your honesty and openness.

Cried, laughed, agreed, hurt, prayed and cringed.  Was sad, hopeful and encouraged.
Better than what you read to me over the phone some time ago.
Well done David.  You were very brave to undertake this book (the journey – again!)
Has it helped you?  It’s helped me.  Thank you!
Recognised all the ‘hidden’ people of course.  Your desire not to inflict any more pain is evident. Bless you.
My prayers and love to you and your family.
‘He has turned my mourning into dancing..’  I pray this for you.

God’s best – love LW (Fiona)

Your Experience
We need your experience of good or bad sects!

Whether it’s a sporting group, political party or a church – we all need Good Sects. The trouble is that not every group is good.

In Christian faith groups, it seems that there are too many people who have been hurt by spiritual abuse of one kind or another.  There are far more people in the community who will not enter churches because of their experience or the experience of family and friends. Many abandon faith altogether.

The good and bad experiences extend to para church organisations as well. Organisations motivated by Christian ethos should be the best run and most ethical in all their actions. Sadly, this is not always so.  Again, please share your good and bad experiences on this site of para church organizations as well.

  1. Every page of the Ayliffe’s book struck a chord, but I was tugged at the heart strings to read the final page postscript of recollection of Adolf Hitler by Frau Traudl Junge: “I have never understood the effect he had on all of us, including the generals. It was more than charisma. Sometimes when he went off somewhere without us, the moment he was gone it was almost as if the air around us had become deficient … there was a vacuum.”

    And yet such a revered, worshipped, tangibly powerful national leader of a proud race created so much devastating harm for millions….

    We all need leaders. But what is the recourse to justice for those – many – who have worshipfully obeyed a despotic leader or family member (who appeals by his/her presence with demands of unquestioning attention) — in spite of the clear cruel harm created in the lives of so many other people; so much pain spewing from a crater of blind trust and cruel loyalty.

    Is that the weakness of the innate selfishness to be Tough, to give Payback, or is it Ego and Hubris, or just neediness to feel Loved (even by liars) or Belong?

    Margaret Ayliffe’s scant testimony gave the much-needed voice of the normal women in all the mess these cults and sects create.

    The sentiments of loved ones (John’s story) exemplify a natural reaction of onlookers to be critical, angry and cynical yet full of love — there’s something helpless yet noble in this. It sadly penetrates nothing – neither the cult, nor the lost loved one, nor the politicians. No-one. Cults implode by catalystic self-destruction; they are never educated into oblivion, not as far as I’m aware.

    Yet it is a natural reaction we loved ones and survivors looking on all cope with. Perhaps it is the frustrating sadness of TRUE LOVE, with all its faulty bits and pieces, but is put into a gear called despair, manipulated, by clever, smooth, supremely intelligent stategists.

    Can you add the newspaper articles, from the Manly Daily, of Violet being arrested?

    You boys need to get your children/grandchildren/ ABC to make a movie of your account of Zion.

    • Thank you so much for your thoughtful response after reading our book. I’d love to be able to use your review. Would you be happy for us to do that? If so please send me an email at david@goodsects.com.au
      And yes, John and I would love to see the story made into a movie as we feel it is so important to help others affected by controlling groups. You can read about a documentary that is being aired on the ABC on my other blog faithofthefree.wordpress.com.
      Kind regards,
      David .
