John and Arlyn became missionaries for the cult, in Texas, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.

They produced several more children.

In Venezuela, Arlyn and John lost faith in the Children of God.

Arlyn said that the cult's leader, David Berg, "sought to attract rich disciples through sex."

The Children of God cult has urged young people to become whores.

In 1999, the Children of God (Family International) published an interview with River Phoenix from beyond the grave.

[Q:] You know how everyone was suspecting you and Keanu of being gay. Was it true?

Keanu and I were like close brothers. We did love each other, but not in that way...

We made the mistake of making that movie, My Own Private Idaho

It was very degrading, degenerate... we were telling them that it's okay to be gay.

Well, it's not okay! - It's filthy!...

[Q:] I was wondering if you ever thought back to when you were younger, and in the Family. Did you believe anything that people told you about your past?

I was very young when my parents left the Family. It was very confusing for me because they had taught me to love the Lord, and to love Grandpa [David Berg], Papa Lion.—And I did. 

I loved him very much, and everything the Family stood for. 

My sister and I would perform on the streets, singing and playing guitar, and we really enjoyed it. We were very happy. It was beautiful. People loved us and we were very fulfilled.

Then suddenly they uprooted us and went back to the System, back to the "Whore," back to America...

[Q:] If you had a chance to redo it all, would you choose to stay in the Family? [...]

If I had a chance to go back and do it all over, I would stay in the Family, because there is no greater calling on this Earth than to serve the Lord. And there's no greater place to serve the Lord on this Earth than in the Family. So that would be my greatest desire.

Maybe he didn't feel like revealing/talking about a part of their life that might be painful to remember, maybe he loves his parents and doesn't want to tarnish the image he has of them, at least not in public, Joaquin is an extremely private person... River spent his life protecting/supporting his family, he had pain hidden in him, obviously, and it came from his childhood, he gave glimpses of it, an interview here, another one there, just a little, just enough, yet he was fiercely protective of his family and his parents. I don't know... but I can't help but feeling they fucked up that kid! River did say in 1991 that The Family was "ruining people's lives" so, something must had happen, those parents did knew more than what they told... then again, can't blame a child for loving his parents.
