Re: BCF C’n school teachers & students’ exodus

There is a christian school in Melbourne's east that is doing some good work and having a high success rate in saving its students from MCF. The college founder knew Ray Jackson Jnr personally and became aware of the problems (and the Jackson/Hall/Burkett history) at MCF and associated CFs. The trut...

Re: From my soul to yours, dear survivors

Dear Breakfree and your lovely wife, I love your poem very much. It reminded me of my past CF life which was a similar experience. I exited my CF quite a few years ago after being on the receiving end of their abuse which had reduced me to a mere shell of my original self, and yes, they told me God ...

Re: The "Freedom of Choice"

Can anyone explain to me the meaning of: "Forsaking the way of the tree of life"?? I know, right!?! It's a really ambiguous thing to say. But I think most xCF people who read that will automatically take that to mean that those who've left the fellowship have turned their back on God. The...

Re: The "Freedom of Choice"

Can anyone explain to me the meaning of: "Forsaking the way of the tree of life"?? It's typical CF speak, dressing up their actions and behaviours in biblical symbols to give a sense of greater authority. In this case they've determined that they receive their spiritual nourishment from t...

Re: David Hall Senior

David Hall Senior is the master of projection. He is anything but kind and gentle. I have experienced first hand his manipulation, control, brainwashing and heartache under his “leadership” A narcissist at best. He has been truly awful and only thru intense therapy have I managed to recover from his...

Re: David Hall Senior

I also, see 2 sides to David Hall Snr: 1. That of a kind-hearted gentleman who genuinely seeks the Lord, having many other talents besides being the church Pastor and elder, including music and song with the Firebrands, choir and orchestra and a genuine desire to see people go on with God. THEN VIC ...

Re: David Hall Senior

I believe we should be praying for all involved. Yes, even including Vic. It would be a miricle to see any change of heart, but I also believe that with God, anything is possible. When things like this come up, it's always a good reminder that we need to have a humble attitude in all things. There i...

The "Freedom of Choice"

I came across this recently. The paragraph quoted below is the final two paragraph of the book 'The Freedom of Choice'. This is the take-home message; what the writer(s) want the reader to remember. If there ever was a statement that summarises narcissistic, abusive and cultish leadership practices,...

Re: IHOP Interview

Here's a part two of the above. Another three speak out. Good, genuine Christians believing they are being obedient to God by being 'all in' on the IHOPKC movement, until they realise... something's wrong. I'm gobsmacked at how similar the culture of IHOPKC is to BCF. The stories these ladies tell a...
