Re: TRUTHING IN LOVE

Hi Paul It looks like you were getting in just as I was getting out! Yes, I hope it doesn't take that long for you either. I can only say it does get better. I've never believed the old adage of "time heals" - it doesn't. It just gives distance from the events and an opportunity to look at things fr...

Re: TRUTHING IN LOVE

Hi Paul Thank you for sharing your struggles with us. I've been thinking about how to answer because it has been a while since I left. Some triggers remain but overall life is pretty damn good! One of the things that kept me sane after the madness of MCF was, as you have already expressed, getting b...

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...
