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

Wow Than, that is so sad that Vic was talking like that in 2015. But it's totally consistent with what we've experienced even as we were low-level friends of his. I could never quite reconcile his boastful claims with our universal requirement of Christ-like humility. It shows that Vic's fall is one...

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

Thanks eagles.

I have had a lot of time to think about it and have needed to get it down clearly and identify root causes. I have read through the NT about 6 times in the last year trying to find if there is the slightest hint of MCF/BCF theology in there!

There isn't of course.

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

PART 5. THE SCREWY XCF THEOLOGY & ROOT CAUSES The tainted theology at MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship) that led to all this is a theology of control by people based on the idea that this makes it 'more real and less mystical' which undoubtedly has some support in Scripture. 'He who cannot love H...

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

Yes, of course it's HIs ministry, and we work to do what He has called us to by Him in us and us in HIm. But we can't keep second guessing ourselves. Better to do good (as per Gal 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good) than nothing. We hear only DIMLY while we are here so what God loves is us wo...

Re: Fear

Eagles, I think your friend had a great (and unique) way of putting it. God does not expect us all to be experts at everything. Or understand the whys and wherefores of his guiding. 1 Cor 13 makes it clear that knowledge will always be subservient to love. Love covers a multitude of sins. So let's r...

PART 4. WHAT THEY DID TO MY AND MY WIFE'S CHRISTIAN SERVICE During this time of 'guru headship', as I call it, because of my struggles with my gurus (local elder and his henchmen) concerning their directions to pointlessly sacrifice my career, they shut I and my wife down almost entirely in terms of...

Re: Who will ascend and descend?

I read this topic again today. I can't believe they have the audacity to suggest that anyone at XCF wants 'a clergy-style leader to ‘ascend into heaven’ on their behalf and bring Christ down to them through doctrinal prescription or patriarchy'!!!!! . . because that's EXACTLY what they've been forci...

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

Will do Eagles. Most of the leavings at MCF occurred before the full onset of the 1993-2016 cultish behaviour so there is not much expression here of the sorts of things that happened to me. It really seems that almost everyone else at MCF is intermarried and that will keep them there no matter what...

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

PART 3. DENIALS, LIES, COVER-UPS & PROVOCATIONS It all came to a head in early 2016 when I was challenged by a member of the current presbytery (Gary Worth) why my family's finances were in such disorder. I admitted that we chose to send our children to a (about half the price of a normal private sc...

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

Yes, Than, you are probably right. The fall of 1988 at MCF was a chance for a new start and they blew it by seeking ANOTHER top dog rather than Jesus. I feel now that the MCF presbytery were like teenagers seeking pop stars. We were duped into following them by the good stuff. But, in hindsight, non...
