Re: Shunning

This is a tale that has been repeated over the decades in countless families Faith Hopegood Shunning continues to be the mandate by which BCF elders and adherents justify their cruelty.

Re: Testimonials and Reviews

Hi Dexter, I appreciated your openness about the traffic incident. I must admit I get cross at ‘trucks’ because they barge their way …at great speed, then get irritated at me because I’m driving too slow. However, while we are being honest, I have used swear words to describe the cruelty at BCF. I d...

Re: STUDY BOOK: "THE CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP ANSWERED FROM SCRIPTURE"

Trust and Obey This hymn paints a picture of communion with God in which fear and gloom have disappeared, and delight and joy saturate one's existence.
