Re: What is happening in the Adelaide Fellowship? (Westlakes Christian Fellowship)

Thanks Boundary Rider, I agree with your assessment of Tim Maurice. I am not sure that he will go willingly to the WLCF though. As I was part of the NSW branch of CF I watched Tim rise to power in 2006 and since then has been building his empire in Bowral. He has been slowly moving money and resourc...

Re: Guilt and Shame

Thank you Stargazer, It looks like a really good book. Dear congregations of CF. God has given you a brain, is it not insulting to him if you don't use it. Use your critical think skills, be like the Bereans in Acts 17. Read the scriptures test your leaders measure them against the word of God. The ...

Great question quest. I firstly will clarify my position in studying the bible. I am a sociologist and therefore do not view the bible literally. I read the bible in the context in which it was written: for example who wrote the book, who the book was intended for and what was the social context at ...

Re: Cutting off families

Dear Guest, I am sorry for your experience. It very dangerous when scripture is taken out of context and weaponised. I had a similar experience from the "Jesus bring a sword passage" Matthew 10:34-36. I don't have much to offer other than the hand of friendship. I created this email if you...
