Re: How unique is BCF/MCF's brand of cultishness (especially the last 25 Vic Hall years)?

I also was curious about the address in Groucho Place. That is not a cheap address. It would indicate some substantial coin was retained from swamp city living. [/i] Groucho Place is actually in the Brisbane suburb of McDowall. Murray & Kate were living there before Swampford got going. A lot of th...

Re: How unique is BCF/MCF's brand of cultishness (especially the last 25 Vic Hall years)?

BCF has a long history of cutting people loose under dubious circumstances when it suited them (Vic) best. Very true Faith, in fact they will nearly all be of Pension Age now (Bill Barnes probably well into his 70's now), so Vic deals very efficiently with the issue by flicking them off to Centreli...

Re: How unique is BCF/MCF's brand of cultishness (especially the last 25 Vic Hall years)?

And that’s the problem here, unchecked power. Yes, Bagel, I totally concur with you. Looking back to the period when Vic & Alex used to meet with the other leaders of the Charismatic/Pentecostal movement, (was in mid 70's), I think that's why Immanuel (as it was called then) withdrew from those mee...

Re: How unique is BCF/MCF's brand of cultishness (especially the last 25 Vic Hall years)?

What presence of mind, what thought processes and what spiritual inspiration drive both The Vicious Hall and Der Falkster to pick a fetid swamp and an equally foul sewerage works as immediate neighbours and regular meeting place for their cult meetings????? One simple answer here - Brisbane picked ...

Re: Gnosticism

Why do I say 'looney' or fallen ? Because they knew more than us plebs and kept accepting total garbage. Thank you Paul - do understand what you are saying here. I personally think that BCF teachings can cause some people to become "puffed up" with their own delusional thinking, about their own "se...

Re: Vic Hall and Order of Melchizedek

Very well put Bagel - thanks for your insight. Just a small difference of opinion I have: I would hesitate to call 'Swampford' a "success story" - more a "survival story" - which beggars belief when one takes into account the amount of negative publicity they have attracted. As we well know, the fea...

Re: Vic Hall and Order of Melchizedek

* Multiple eldership
Paul, the 'Multiple Eldership' was just a sham - especially after Vic Hall took over. It was 'Vic's way' or the Highway....
