And so this is Christmas ...

I was just thinking about those of you who experience the extra heartbreak at Christmas of being separated from family and others because of shunning. Although we might empathise, many of us have no idea of the pain you have gone through and are still going through. I wanted to let you know that you...

Re: The 500th birthday of the reformation of Christian belief

Hi Eagles You were right. I did misread your original comment - apologies for that. I do understand you are trying to make an historical connection between the Reformation and our struggle on Streetcar as we deal with the effects of having been manipulated by a narcissistic meglomaniac. The point is...

Re: The 500th birthday of the reformation of Christian belief

Hi Eagles I think what I am objecting to is the cred you are giving the XCF group -comparing them with a global organisation when they are nothing more than a small, not even national, religious cult. They are probably more like the Manicheans than the RC church and their behaviour would fit well wi...

Re: The 500th birthday of the reformation of Christian belief

Hi Eagles I haven't read all of your comments above - and I do get frustrated when people post lengthy stuff on this forum which is not really what we are on about- but I did disagree with your comment above where you stated: Martin Luther was, indeed, the central figure and founder (in a major way)...

Re: A Handmaid's Tale - Vic's fantasy world?

Yes I watched the whole series. Great example of how a cult works, I thought.

Re: 5 Indicators of an Evil Heart

Brilliant article, Than. Thanks for sharing.
It describes Ray Jackson Snr incredibly accurately.
Did Vic learn from the master or were they just peas in a pod?

Re: The level of degradation that MCF reached 1994-2016

At the risk of being rude and crude I'd say the only bowl their teachings come from is the toilet bowl. So not clever to take an obscure passage of scripture that has a myriad of interpretations and weave a diabolical doctrine to trap the unwary. Yes, David Bonham probably did come in initially with...

Re: Covenant Family

This is my short answer to a tricky question. Context, context, context. Paul's letters are pastoral, not necessarily doctrinal. He is addressing pastoral issues within the specific church. The Corinthians were not that keen on marriage on ascetic grounds so the chapters on marriage are like a discu...

Re: Covenant Family

Is that really what is being taught now? Divine nature given in the womb if your family believes? Wow. It lines up with the catholic doctrines of the Immaculate Conception of Mary as the Mother of God, her continuing virginity and eventual ascension into heaven. God-like from the womb. But then the ...

Re: The level of degradation that MCF reached 1994-2016

Mark's blog and the comments that follow give a very interesting picture of not just the things that happened but provide a range of people's responses to Kevin Connor's and Morag Zwartz' books as well as some personal experiences. Given that we want to let people know about this abusive manipulativ...
