The church owns a mansion in Florida (link here: http://virtualglobetrotting.com/map/the-church-of-bible-understanding/view/?service=1), where the leader and founder of the church, Stewart Traill lives, with his wife and an array of female followers. Though Christianity based, the church seems highly preoccupied with making money. The members of the church live communally and receive little if any of this money and very little money goes to charitable works. Most of the proceeds of the church business go to Stewart Traill, though properties and bank accounts are in the Church of Bible Understanding's name, not Traill's name, but as founder and leader of the church, Traill enjoys the use of these things, while in most cases, church members do not. For someone who preaches an extreme message of "giving up one's life in this world" and "putting self to death" he seems overly preoccupied with income gathering strategies and having church members work long hours, while giving up their lives, and giving up any thought of having relationships or marriages. For all of Traill's claims to exclusive knowledge of God's will and the of Bible that few, if any other Christians have, the only literature produced by COBU is a few single sheet outlines of Traill's teachings, such as "The Escape Recipe" and "The U Point of View.""
...
"Though no one there is prohibited from accessing outside information or reading other literature or books, the leader, Stewart Traill is considered by them to have the ultimate truth on all matters spiritual and temporal and he is the filter through whom they interpret reality."
...
Members speak in words and phrases invented or given meaning to by Traill, so much so that entire dialogs can sometimes be made of sentences of patched together "Stewart phrases" and buzz words and cult jargon. Dialog with members can be difficult, because they only speak on the themes driven and taught by Traill, such as one's soon death, giving up one's life in the world and putting self to death."
...
Traill will claim that he does not "forbid marriage," but tells members they are not faithful enough to Christ to get married.
