Plagiarized art

From XFamily - Children of God

The Family International has published a significant amount of plagiarized artwork, often while claiming that Jesus or a "spirit helper" inspired their artists with exactly what to draw.

Shortly after a Flash presentation (see below) exposing some of the plagiarism (primarily by artist Jan "Tamar" McRae) was posted on the Web, Karen Zerby addressed the issue to members of The Family International who had watched it and written with questions about it in a Good News magazine entitled "Which Comes First: The Revelation or the Artwork?".
