That 'outreach' at Lae has been going for 50 years - should be self-sufficient by now, surely?! Maybe it will go to the 'outreach' in Switzerland? 😂🙄
Don’t mock. Switzerland is a very expensive place. $60k? Minimum! Think bigly people.

Self styled NZ pastor creates trouble in Brisbane

So, another self-styled NZ pastor comes to Brisbane and creates trouble. And says women should ‘get back in the kitchen where they belong’.

Another Cult Leader bites the dust

Be careful my friends, another group of end-timers believed this leader. He fooled 10,000 followers (including highly educated people) and got them to do all manner of unfortunate things. They trained here in Australia. Here. In Australia. Here’s the news report on him ..... http://www.abc.net.au/ne...

Re: ‘Faith’ healing or not?

Hi robocop, Netflix subscribers can view the whole thing, but here is a link to an excerpt. WARNING! If vernacular language offends, please do not view. I watched his whole show, he demonstrated/simply borrowed everything from (TV, Christian evangelical) faith healers and incorporated it into his ac...

‘Faith’ healing or not?

Hello, Just watched MIRACLE on NETFLIX. Darren Brown is the entertainer/magician. The spectacle of faith healing and crowd manipulation was laid bare to a large degree. Healing, speaking tongues, interpretation, all touched on. If you’re prepared to, see if it challenges your own beliefs. Or not. Ba...

Re: Gnosticism

Hi Faith, Thanks, good words. It’s interesting that one can avoid scrutiny by a wave of the hand and subtle obfuscation. The declaration of ‘spirit led’ is powerful, it creates a sense of exclusivity, it frames things such as formal scholarship as dead works. It gives a blue sky framework to the who...

Re: Vic Hall and Order of Melchizedek

Hello, I thought maybe (as some of our previous links have gone in the changeover) putting up this link again of Roger Williams. He, in my humble opinion makes some cogent and appropriate comments on the teachings and practices of the Swamp People. His observations on how the spirit is perverted and...

Dawn Smith on leaving her parent’s church (cult)

Re: Vic Hall and Order of Melchizedek

Hello Paul, Good question. No, it wasn’t necessarily all egos. There was undoubtedly a time where God’s Word was the foundation of all that happened, and the message was strong and compelling. But bubbling away was the clamour to get a cut of the action. Think of how many young people went to ‘bible...
