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

Yes, you are quite right Robocop. Standing back and taking a long term view of BCF activities over the past 20 years or so, what we see is a transfer and consolidation of assets (as well as consolidation of decision making power) directly to the Hall family in Brisbane. Boundary Riders great investi...

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

Bagel, I think you might be right in your thinking and I wouldn't put it past Vic to do this. I am sure this type of thinking and planning was factored into BCF punting Raymond Guyatt some years ago when Vic knew that Raymond could go on the pension. It may be worth doing a little research on the ag...

I believe the rare frog was the Samford Long Nosed Swamp Frog :)

It was later joined by another Swamp Dweller who also had a long nose like Pinnochio !!

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

Thank you so much Paul and Bagel, for sharing your thoughts above. Paul your observations are spot on. Bagel, you had me chuckling with laughter at your turn of phrase, particularly the part where you said "A few executions in the street were all that was needed to keep the peasants from revolting. ...

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

Thanks Paul. your first post above really focuses in on the issues. From my time at BCF I can only agree with your analysis. EVERYTHING that Vic Hall preaches and disseminates is totally focused on control in every aspect in a persons life. From what I can understand, this manipulation has not relen...

Re: Gnosticism

Thanks Bagel. Your observation about exclusivity framing formal scholarship as dead works is very very true. I remember hearing numerous BCF leaders and also business people opening mocking formal theological training and seminaries as "cemeteries", thus discounting any and all teaching that theolog...

Gnosticism

One thing to be aware of with the teachings of the Christian Fellowship group of churches is their focus on the teaching of "Gods Administration" and "present word". Gnosticism is defined as "a variety of second-century AD religions whose participants believed that people could only be save through ...

Re: Vic Hall and Order of Melchizedek

Wendy, I think you have summed it up pretty well. A bit of diligent research and theological study by any concerned people will quickly reveal that the majority of the CF teaching definitions and variations by Jackson and Hall are revealed as dangerous. When you combine teachings that are in error w...

Re: Vic Hall and Order of Melchizedek

Thanks for your comments Bagel and Robocop. Bagel, I think you have summed up the activities of BCF pretty well. Maybe once, a long time ago, they may have have a desire to see the Word preached but not now. BCF is a toxic cesspool of unhealthy groupthink behaviour. I agree with Robocop - BCF is not...

Re: Vic Hall and Order of Melchizedek

Thanks to Paul and Wendy for the feedback. I had forgotten about the book "the Ephesian Pattern". I can see the validity of Pauls comments about the scripture, it certainly is there in the bible and there is no doubt that Christ wants a spotless bride. And I think Pauls 1,2 & 3 points are very true,...
