Re: Trauma:How can this be of God?

Hi Stargazer, Welcome. The short answer to your question is that BCF and affiliated groups are a cult. You are right not to call BCF a church as there is nothing christian about the group or their teachings. The CF group has not tried to grow for a very long time and has relied heavily on children b...

ongoing rejection

Friends, I am writing this as I don’t know where else to really turn. The price of leaving CF is high. It is drilled into us before we even consider leaving. When we do leave excommunication is swift and sharp leaving us without our families, friends and communities. You are made and example of as t...

The Insidious Harm of Spiritual Abuse

Spiritual abuse—which is the manipulation and exploitation of others by the misuse of spiritual privilege and power—is a well ­documented problem in the mind controlling cults and sects of Australia. Unfortunately, as many battered Christians have discovered, its negative effects may also be found i...

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

That's incredibly sad but also funny. Vic's shot himself in the foot with all those people not earning money. How can they pay the tithe if they aren't making any money

Re: Escaping Eden

when I left CF I attended a cult recovery workshop through CIFS. There was a spectrum of cults represented. There was a moment where we went around the room and someone piped up and said that their group was the only true group of believers and they had been following the messiah. Another person jum...

Dear Guest, I would like to understand more of what your questions are about. They are very ambiguous and Jargon heavy. I will only speak from my own journey since leaving CF. The first question "Why is my life characterised by fear, defeat and failure?" We were firstly conditioned to beli...

Good News

Friends, I have been recently encouraged to find there are a number of 2nd & 3rd generation CF people that are leaving. By that I mean children either made to join or born into the cult. I personally have had a number of people reach out to me in the last couple of months. The light shinning on ...

Dear Guest, I am replying to the original post/question. Firstly CF doctrine is built upon this fundamental fault. Vic finds the word tree in the book of Genesis then finds the same word tree in say Romans. He then claims that because tree is in Genesis and also in Romans they are talking about the ...
