The Gospel According to Vic Hall

Post by Faith Hopegood » Sun Mar 18, 2018 10:02 am

The Gospel According to Vic

What are the main beliefs the Christian Fellowship group claims to differentiate itself from all other Christian churches?

From my 20 years of experience in the fellowship, it was the claim:
1) "we have a special word that has been revealed to us that has not been revealed to other churches" and
2) "we have a special revelation of the administration" and
3) "we have a special relationship between the brethren (leaders) that other christian churches do not".

In addition to these foundational beliefs it is Vic Hall who makes the main claim that he has been given "special" revelations and visitations from God.

With the CF/RFI, the whole basis of what sets them apart from the rest of Christianity is that they believe they have a special revelation that no other part of Christendom has. The effect of having such as belief is that is creates a hook where an ungodly spirit of pride and a religious spirit enter their world view and actions and consequently completely blinds them to the truth of the main biblical message. This blinding spirit also allows the CF leadership and congregation to commit terrible atrocities against people, marriages and families with a misguided belief that they are doing Gods will, even though blind Freddy can see that their actions are completely against what is taught in the main bible including the four Gospels.

Speaking of the four main scriptural gospels, did you know that there are other gospels that were deemed not divinely inspired, not in harmony with the main four gospels, and thus left out of what we know as the New Testament? Examples are the The Gospel of Thomas and The Gospel of Judas Iscariot.

Did you know that the opening lines of The Gospel of Thomas and The Gospel of Judas Iscariot state:
Extract from the Gospel of Thomas
"These are the secret sayings that the living Jesus spoke and Didymos Judas Thomas recorded. "
Extract from Gospel of Judas Iscariot
"The secret account of the revelation that Jesus spoke in conversation with Judas Iscariot during a week three days before he celebrated Passover."

Can you see the similarity in claims between the discarded heretical Gospels of Thomas and Judas Iscariot and the foundational beliefs of the Christian Fellowship that were and are espoused by Vic Hall?

In truth, the CF group does not really have a special relationship among the brethren (elders). The reality of the fact is that Vic Hall sits as top leader and all the other elders who think they are equal in Vic actually sit in the next level down the food chain. If you want proof of this, just have a look at what happens when one of the elders who thinks they speak and act on equal terms with Vic tries to tell Vic that his teachings are in error or that Vic needs a little correction. Very quickly you find out the truth, and these elders are given the right boot of fellowship out the door - examples are Raymond Guyatt and Steven Hall. Ray told Vic he was doing wrong teachings and got his marching orders right out the gate never to return whilst Steven Hall was stood down from duties with "stress" and the congregation was told not to contact him for a time.

In summary, Vic Hall and the other CF elders have led all the Christian Fellowship congregation members down the path of wrong and heretical teaching of Gnosticism. Instead of focusing on the redeeming love and salvation of Christ and main bible message, Vic Hall has focused and developed a whole false theology based upon erroneous prideful gnostic principles which is demonstrated by the nearly incomprehensible constant stream of pamphlets and booklets published by the CF printing house. If Vic Halls principles are divinely inspired then there would be no trouble having these teaching examined by the wider church. Of course this does not happen and any time Vic's teachings are examined thoroughly, they are quickly shown to be in error.

If you need proof just have a look at the fruit and actions of these false teachers. They actively promote shunning and trigger pride in people, they actively break up marriages and families forbidding wives to see Christian husbands, forbidding sons and daughters to see fathers and parents. The other proof of bad fruit is the anger that flows out when elders yell and scream at people who have confronted them about their destructive ways. That is their fruit. Other proof is that the Christian Fellowship does not follow what is known in the bible as "The Great Commission".

Hi Faith,
When you say: ---
"What are the main beliefs the Christian Fellowship group claims to differentiate itself from all other Christian churches?

From my 20 years of experience in the fellowship, it was the claim:
1) "we have a special word that has been revealed to us that has not been revealed to other churches" and
2) "we have a special revelation of the administration" and
3) "we have a special relationship between the brethren (leaders) that other christian churches do not".

In addition to these foundational beliefs it is Vic Hall who makes the main claim that he has been given "special" revelations and visitations from God."
--- you have clearly defined what has happened to the CFs and RFI under Victor John Hall as a modern Gnostic takeover. This process of Gnostic Heresy has plagued the Christian Church even from before Paul's death around 63/65 AD and for the first 150 years of the Christian era. Throughout the time since, this Gnosticism keeps coming back in various forms and in the Twentieth Century to now has sadly been strongly linked to the Charismatic Revival and Pentecostalism.

In Vic's case it is a multiple mix of heresies including the teaching of William Offiler and the Bethel Temple Movement ( R.J. Jackson's "The Move") , The North Battleford Revival, the Gospel of Wealth, and the "Shepherding Movement". It is the Shepherding Movement and Vic's aberration of it which drives the way Vic and his elder messengers inflict their control over the people of the Christian Fellowships in Restoration Fellowships International which you have clearly described.

So to sum it up in my characteristically terse fashion ... Victor John Hall is the Master Gnostic Heretic driving his elder/Shepherds to enslave the congregations to his and their will and "special revelation and connection to God" rather than setting them free in the love of Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit to enable them. They are a coven of heretics spreading Vic's heretical teaching, masquerading as "angels (aggelos messengers) of light.

Lord deliver the good people of the Christian Fellowships from this monstrous pantomime of "spiritual outpouring."

BR .... back in the saddle, bruised but unbowed.

Just to add to Vic's multiple list of heresies based on "Special Revelation" are these three more: ---
1. The distortion of the Quest for Holiness in "Unto Perfection" which borders on the notion of sinless perfection for God's elect
2. The faithful being "Priests after the order of Melchizedek", especially Vic and the elders as the aggelos messengers of this teaching, conveniently denying the priesthood of all believers taught by Paul in Romans
3. The Gospel of Sonship, which is a recent rage doctrine among Pentecostal fringe dwellers (and definitely NOT a special revelation to Vic).

Heresy is essentially "False teaching" and the seven examples highlighted in V.J. Hall's " special Word" definitely fit that meaning. False teaching can also arise from distorted versions of Old Testament practices associated with Israel and the Temple as if they are still binding on Christians. This effectively denies that the death of Jesus fulfilled the Old Law at the heart of the Old Testament, making it of no effect and its rites and practices no longer binding on those called Christians. In relation to giving in the life of the early Christian Church those Old Testament teachings of tithes and offerings were replaced by communal giving based on need of the brethren, not on propping up a priestly class. The destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem by Titus in 70 AD sealed the death knell on the power of the Old Testament on the lives of Christian believers, and it was only when, in the 4th Century, that Christianity became the official religion of Rome that the old need to support a priestly class came back and supplanted the practice of communal giving characteristic of the Christians at Pentecost and thereafter.

In the CFs and RFI this distortion towards error is notable in the justification of tithes and offerings as mandatory on believers as a way of getting maximum income from CFers which allows those 'on the tithe' and higher up the food chain to live very comfortable lives with minimal taxation, exploiting the status of RFI as a religious, not-for-profit, tax exempt charitable organisation .... hardly consistent with Jesus' ministry of itinerant poverty.

Go figure................. :roll:
