Re: How unique is BCF/MCF's brand of cultishness (especially the last 25 Vic Hall years)?

Vic would not have even blinked when he backstabbed Graham Harry, Steve Hall, Murray Wylie and David Falk! .....I'll wager that Vic probably spent many nights in his study thinking up ways to get rid of the people who irritated him and probably had a wry smile when it all went down. Just like the w...

Re: How unique is BCF/MCF's brand of cultishness (especially the last 25 Vic Hall years)?

Honestly, for me, I was simply trying to live the Book of Acts. Pure and simple. No other agenda. Hi Paul, Thanks again for your astute and timely observations of B/MCF. I feel for you so much, I think you have been done over by these people. It burns me to think of it. Especially when the message ...

Re: How unique is BCF/MCF's brand of cultishness (especially the last 25 Vic Hall years)?

Hello Paul, Thanks for raising this, and thanks for being very articulate about the practices of this cultish collective. I believe you are correct in observing that it wasn’t necessarily sex or money being pursued, at least directly. But certainly empirical evidence points to power or control being...

That 'outreach' at Lae has been going for 50 years - should be self-sufficient by now, surely?! Maybe it will go to the 'outreach' in Switzerland? 😂🙄
Don’t mock. Switzerland is a very expensive place. $60k? Minimum! Think bigly people.

Self styled NZ pastor creates trouble in Brisbane

So, another self-styled NZ pastor comes to Brisbane and creates trouble. And says women should ‘get back in the kitchen where they belong’.

He’s now facing deportation.

Another Cult Leader bites the dust

Be careful my friends, another group of end-timers believed this leader. He fooled 10,000 followers (including highly educated people) and got them to do all manner of unfortunate things. They trained here in Australia. Here. In Australia. Here’s the news report on him ..... http://www.abc.net.au/ne...

Re: ‘Faith’ healing or not?

Hi robocop, Netflix subscribers can view the whole thing, but here is a link to an excerpt. WARNING! If vernacular language offends, please do not view. I watched his whole show, he demonstrated/simply borrowed everything from (TV, Christian evangelical) faith healers and incorporated it into his ac...

‘Faith’ healing or not?

Hello, Just watched MIRACLE on NETFLIX. Darren Brown is the entertainer/magician. The spectacle of faith healing and crowd manipulation was laid bare to a large degree. Healing, speaking tongues, interpretation, all touched on. If you’re prepared to, see if it challenges your own beliefs. Or not. Ba...

Re: Gnosticism

Hi Faith, Thanks, good words. It’s interesting that one can avoid scrutiny by a wave of the hand and subtle obfuscation. The declaration of ‘spirit led’ is powerful, it creates a sense of exclusivity, it frames things such as formal scholarship as dead works. It gives a blue sky framework to the who...

Re: Vic Hall and Order of Melchizedek

Hello, I thought maybe (as some of our previous links have gone in the changeover) putting up this link again of Roger Williams. He, in my humble opinion makes some cogent and appropriate comments on the teachings and practices of the Swamp People. His observations on how the spirit is perverted and...
