Information about Love Family And Friends

The Love Family, or the Church of Jesus Christ at Armageddon, was a U. S. communal religious movement led by Paul Erdmann, who renamed himself Love Israel. The Love Family began in 1968 as one small communal household on Queen Anne Hill, Seattle, and within the first ten years, it expanded to a network of communal homes and businesses. As more people arrived and settled in the surrounding neighborhood, Erdman, as the leader, continued to inherit land and homes (primarily from those who joined) in other, more rural areas of Washington State, Alaska, and Hawaii. Most of the property is no longer under the control of Erdman, having been sold or returned to the original owners via litigation.
