What started out as Bible study morphed into something sinister. Says Rebekah's mom, Maura, "We were referred to as 'God's Army.' Every minute of our lives was controlled. We were instructed to cut off our family, our friends."
In 1986, Maura fell out of favor with the Greens. "I was not allowed to see or talk to my children for six months. There was a shed in the backyard. I was ordered to move into that shed. There were no windows in the shed. It was filled with mildew. You couldn't stand upright. No bath, no shower for six months. I was excommunicated," she remembers.
Now that she has left the cult, she wants the world to know what she endured. "I want all the people who have been sitting under them for all these years to know that they are sitting under deception. There is freedom out in the world," she says.
