Neil and Christy Edgar, pastors of “God’s Creation Outreach Ministry” in Kansas City, Kansas are in jail and charged with the first-degree murder of their 9-year-old son Brian, reports the Kansas City Star.
The church has a history of abusing children, which has included beatings while bound and gagged. Brian Edgar apparently suffocated in his own vomit after such a session.
Two years ago a follower of the Edgars was charged and convicted for abusing his child with a stun gun.
The Edgar group is yet another example of the horrific plight often suffered by children in “cult” or “cult-like” groups their parents have joined.
Many cult leaders tell their flock they are only accountable to “God not man.” But it seems the Edgars will be held accountable in court long before receiving their ultimate judgement from heaven.
