Re: Abuse by leaders focused on protecting their ministries

Wow! Incredible Wendy. And do you remember how Annette Burkett had a vision of a heart of stone? It made her cry. And an elder (not sure who) once had a vision about the harshness towards the women. In the vision he saw a firey barrier that was being violated by the men (husbands) who were being enc...

Abuse by leaders focused on protecting their ministries

I just thought I'd post an image of a vision an ex-MCFer had of church leadership while at Melbourne Christian Fellowship (MCF). It's a scene of horror. Long haired ('strong'), robe-wearing (initially 'annointed') leaders wearing INVERTED gold crowns (damned rather than rewarded?), thrust over their...

Re: So what’s the situation at Toowoomba Christian Fellowship? ----

Thanks for those thoughts both of you. I feel for your losses too. And thanks SBJ for that intro and link to Wordsworth's SBJ. It was very touching. Your question, how to reconcile turning the other cheek (to abusers)? No answer, but The Scriptures teach both Christ's turn the other cheek and Paul's...

Re: So what’s the situation at Toowoomba Christian Fellowship? ----

Yes, thanks SBJ (is your username a CS Lewis ref?). The only thing I can add to this David Falk business is: 1. How much our young men loved him in Melbourne. He was 'Falky' to them. He still was years after his demise! They all wanted to be like Falky. 2. How much I wanted to like him. But I smelle...

Re: What do YOU think is CORRECT (& not well acknowledged by others) in the MCF/BCF teachings/culture?

Yes Than, I had some good chats with Richie Kaa before I left in Nov 2016 about body ministry being only a poor man's priesthood of all believers. I pointed out how it says 'everyone hath' with reference to 'instruction'. That's not a 30 seconds body-ministry sound bite. He agreed and started having...

Re: Vic Hall thinks he is the modern Apostle Paul

It was in a rare series of bible studies on end times based on Vic's new look at it. A lot of it made reasonable sense but to me it's just a theory.

Re: Vic Hall thinks he is the modern Apostle Paul

Vic certainly believes he is (or is at least in line) to be a last day one of the 12 apostles. But I think, deep down, Vic knows he's getting too old for that because: THE BCF website is now (for the first time) stating their belief in the '42 year period' of the end (= the 'last hour' prophetically...

Re: The Heresy of the Christian Fellowship and Pope Vic Halls' teachings.

Yep, more of the same stuff we experienced 1992-2016. It's the same every week for 25+ years. Elders instead of Christ to make it more 'grounded'. But instead it made it MORE mystical! When we left in 2016 the encouragement at the Friday morning prayer group I attended (which Ray Jackson Jnr attende...

Re: What do YOU think is CORRECT (& not well acknowledged by others) in the MCF/BCF teachings/culture?

For some reason I didn't get alerts from your replies folks! Thanks for your replies. I think I can say I agree with much of what you've all said. EXCEPT 1. Eschatology The pattern of a creative & redemptive week of history still makes sense to Jeff Hammond, myself and my creation scientist father. ...

Re: The Heresy of the Christian Fellowship and Pope Vic Halls' teachings.

Yep, not a long bow to draw Faith re indulgences.. These guys are in big trouble. Have I told you all about the vision my father had of the leadership in 2012 (but didn't tell me until 2017)? He saw the elders, with long flowing hair and gowns, CHAINED together sitting side-by-side in coal carts hea...
