GAMES STEWART TRAILL AND COBU PLAY
Stewart Traill loved playing games and pranks on his subjects. He at one point said that we were like guinea pigs and he was the scientist. Many of the things that he said we thought was in jest, but we were greatly mistaken. It turns out that he was serious and we thought that it was just an innocent game of fun, but he was playing for keeps.
The leader played games with us and we played games with each other and it was wickedness and evil in the name of the Lord. Here we will list some of the most common and blatant games that Stewart Trail pulled on us and some of the more fine games we played on one another, including Cobu behaviors and even some behaviors that those who left Cobu continue to demonstrate. ST admitted as much at the ďgraceĒ meeting in 1989 when he said there are deeply ingrained ideas and feelings..running wild in our fellowship. This twisting of reality and creating a new pseudo Christian reality is at the heart of the damage we seek to expose in this website. Some games were fun at first, but later it was no longer funny. Some of the ones that we will list come from the bible and some come from brainstorming and some through real life experience. Hide the oppression bunny, has to do with being oppressed but denying it.
The game that we all came from Cobu but agree not talk about cobu.
The game that we all came from Cobu but agree to forget that cobu happened.

Cobu had some good things.
If you talk about cobu, you are living in the past.
A game that cobu people play is this: when they meet with you alone, they appear welcoming, but when they see you at a Cobu reunion, they treat you as if they don't know you.
When two sisters who had been in Cobu became friends and prayed for each other and talked almost everyday for years until there was a falling out and then one of the two was heard to have said: that she was glad that she never gave her heart to the other sister.
So the question is: Is she bragging about be deceptive? ~ another Cobu behavior.
Cobu people try to take all sides of an argument so that they cannot be wrong. This came about from frantically trying to: ďnot be correctedĒ. It is an ingrained thing that is hard to get out of and it has become second nature as are many of the things on this list and most Cobu people don't even realize they're doing it.
Stewart Traill would treat you kindly in private, but in public he would treat you harshly in a completely different manner.
