Re: Paul Kovak's MCF Blog

Hi Bagel, could you please clarify the following: For some, it’s a matter of finding a ‘church’ that suits them better. For others, it’s a choice to give up the Kool-Aid altogether. So my words are for those who don’t want to simply change which bar they are drinking at, but who want to actually giv...

Re: The Ezekiel Declaration

Bagel, you are quite swift to dish out the vitriol, but when anyone calls you out on it, you pull out the "let's all be nice here". How about this choice remark you made previously: Dexter, you say in some posts that you only know what to think when people tell you what to think. That is s...

Re: Child kicked out of home by CF elder

This is really off-topic, but since you've taken it upon yourself to oppose the Scriptures I find it necessary to address what you've said for the sake of others who may be reading this. Oh hang on, yes my issue is with your opinion of what you think God is, and says. This has nothing to do with &qu...

Re: The Ezekiel Declaration

Spot on Dexter. I heartily signed the Ezekiel Declaration two years ago. At the time I was astonished that there were professing Christians opposing it, and instead were defending oppressive government mandates. One of the positives of the "pandemic" was that it exposed the genuineness of ...

Re: Child kicked out of home by CF elder

Your response, though disappointing, is not surprising. Ultimately your issue is not with me but with God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefor...

Child kicked out of home by CF elder

I just heard that one of the elders of the local CF has kicked his 16 year old son out of the home because he did not want to continue in the CF. This child is well-behaved, studious, industrious, not involved in drugs or immorality, but he has realised that he cannot in good conscious remain in a f...

Re: THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE

Hi BreakFree I agree with what you say about Vic Hall's abuse of Scripture however it is not always the fault of the particular translation he uses. Often he will take an accurately translated word or phrase and pervert it for his evil purposes. The phrase "in the present truth" in 2 Peter...

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

Thanks for the positive feedback, BR. Trawling through the Steps of Salvation books was a nauseating experience. I felt like I needed a long shower afterwards. I can't imagine what it must be like for those who have sat under these soul-destroying teachings for years. Another thing, I print copies o...

STUDY BOOK: "THE CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP ANSWERED FROM SCRIPTURE"

Hi everyone I've put together a study on the latest CF teachings, comparing them to the Scriptures. From the preface: This study began as a series of lessons for the congregation at Granite Belt Baptist Church, but has been expanded into its current form to help others understand this movement. My p...

Re: Paul Kovak's MCF Blog

Hi Folks, Just wondering if we should consider keeping this forum a safe place for all survivors? Paul has been through hell and back, not cool for others to ‘pile on’. C19 was a tough time for all, there was a confluence of untold challenges and misinformation, so let’s not polarise or criticise h...
