While there is a new doctrine which makes them comfortable. In addition, the Gafatar organisation also provide economic solutions that make them more convinced of the doctrine they understand.

In addition Dedy added that the number of followers Gafatar who farming in Borneo was an economic solution given by Gafatar to their followers which impact on the strength of their belief on the new doctrine they understand.
