Deception. Pernicious cults are presented externally as traditional associations. These can be arbitrarily defined by their instigators as almost any banal group (‘religious’, ‘cultural’, ‘political’, ‘commercial’, etc.). However, internally, they are always totalitarian (i.e. they are centrally-controlled and require of their core-adherents an absolute subservience to the group and its patriarchal, and/ or matriarchal, leadership above all other persons). By their very nature, pernicious cults never present themselves in their true colours. Consequently, no one ever becomes involved with one as a result of his/her fully-informed consent.
Numerous 'Amway Diamonds' have been core-adherents of the 'Assemblies of God,' and/or an organization known as the 'Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International (FGBMFI).'

As well as the Ministry of televangelist, Luis Palau, 'Dominionist' groups listed as being in receipt of 'Amway' cash include:
|Pastor Doug Wead with President Bush|

|Pastor Leo Mark Godzich|
|Jean or John Godzich|
It is interesting to note that US-based 'dominionist' groups have been in receipt of cash stolen from all around the globe. So-called 'MLM direct selling' companies have also been used as Trojan Horses to recruit non-Americans into the 'Assemblies of God.' Doug Wead has been a long-time associate of former 'Amway Diamond' Jean (or John) Godzich and his brother, 'Assemblies of God Pastor,' Leo Mark Godzich.

Yet again, when the wider-picture is examined, the 'MLM income opportunity' fraud known as 'GEPM,' and Jean Godzich's attempts to obstruct justice and isolate his US-based bosses from liability, are revealed as being only a small part of a pattern of ongoing, major racketeering activity (as defined by the US federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, 1970, and clarified by subsequent US Supreme Court judgements).
In plain language, 'GEPM' was just one of a herd of corporate,Trojan Horses used to bypass the rule of law in individual states around the world, and steal billions of dollars from tens of millions of ill-informed victims, whilst the gang of narcissistic American thieves who directed the construction of this vast and mystifying criminal enterprise, and who continue to distribute a proportion of its illicit profits to their de facto criminal associates within the American political and religious establishment, have (so far) not been held to account.
