Upon becoming a follower of FATHER DIVINE, one immediately takes steps to do the following:

1. Right any wrongs one did in the past.

2. Pay all one's indebtedness, start paying as one goes, and be self-supporting.

3. Take care of all one's responsibilities in providing for any children one might have until they are sixteen or until they graduate from high school.

4. Refrain from using monies for any sort of gambling, smoking, drinking, drugs, unevangelical entertainment or using cosmetics excessively.

After taking these steps, it is not long until the individuals are able to save money, and as it is against their religious conviction to invest in stocks and bonds and also against their religious conviction to hoard money, they contribute, if they wish, to the Peace Mission Cooperative System that purchases property to be used for the advancement of FATHER DIVINE'S Work and Mission, thereby putting the money to exchange for the common good of humanity. This is done absolutely volitionally with no soliciting or coercion.

Followers desire to do unto others as has been done unto them by FATHER DIVINE. They do not seek honor and glory but want to see others blessed even as they have been. They know FATHER DIVINE'S Name, not theirs, is a blessing to the people. Therefore they adhere strictly to the admonition of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount. Matthew 61,3

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. . . .
But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth.

The followers Own the properties. FATHER DIVINE dedicated these Properties to magnify the Law of Americanism, Brotherhood, Christianity and true Judaism as synonymous. Because the followers truly wish FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE to be praised and honored, the properties are operated under Their Spiritual Guidance and it appears as though the properties belong to THEM Personally, but the followers are the legal owners. A group of followers holds title to the property with right of survivorship, but if and when it is sold, as many properties have been, the living owners share equally the amount received from the sale. FATHER and MOTHER DIVINE own no properties or securities of any kind. The followers pay real estate and other taxes as levied. The owners have not sought tax exemption on privately owned properties. Properties owned by the Churches and operated solely in the service of the Church and the community are tax exempt. seek a better education, that you might be qualified to pass the literacy test
