When we as Christians look at Idols like the one shown below, we will exclaim that it looks so ugly. Some will say that is so nonsensical. However, we should look a little further than the external structure.
You made a statue out of your own skill and craftsmanship and then you set it up on a pedestal and you worship him. I know most TPMers will agree with the proposition that Idol worship by gentiles is abhorrent. However, they do not have the grace to look inside and ask whether they also do the same?
I have been in TPM for many long years to understand an exceptional case and to understand what is the Norm. Let me come to my point. If you would have noted a typical testimony in your local TPM Church, you would have noticed one subtle but a very dangerous trend. You should have been dumb not have noticed this. In a good number of testimonies, the witness testifies that some or few of their Needs/Wants were met by the Prayers of the Saints (intending TPM Ministers). Surprisingly, they do not even mention the faithfulness or mercy of God in getting that thing done. They omit God from the whole thanksgiving part. Then they continue their testimony and sit down. The Next person also says something very similar to that. This is a NORM in TPM Faith Home Sunday Service.
My Simple Questions
- When the witness testifies that they had their wants met by the Prayers of The Saints (intending TPM Ministers), who are they giving their worship/praise to? Certainly, God is not in the whole focus. They do not even consider it important to tell that it was the Faithfulness of God that met their needs. These people should have at least remembered Psalm 23:1. Such praise to humans are very inappropriate for anybody who had even had a cursory look at his bible. But we can give them a pass as they are still in the learning phase and needs correctional teaching. But what surprises me is the next point.
- Why don’t the TPM Ministers rebuke and correct the Testifier? This is because they like the adulation / praise and worship that should have been given to God, to be accorded to them. Do they even realize that they are REPLACING GOD for these ignorant believers? I think they do realize it. But the God of this World(Satan) makes them feel elated by such testimonies and they are carried away thinking very highly of themselves. Now do you understand the reason for their arrogance and Pride?
A Godly response
If you are truly Godly, how should you be responding to a situation like this? Let us turn to Rev 19:10
At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”
Observe how the Angel of the Lord Corrected the Apostle when he was mistaken.
But then you do not expect such a correction from a TPM Minister because they have the satanic urge to take these praises which was supposed to be for God for themselves. They do not consider the TPM Believer as a Fellow-Servant as the angel considered himself to be. They consider the Believer as a Subordinate slave whose needs has to be recommended by them to God. They somehow think that they are nearer to God that that lowly believer. This is in stark violation of all Scriptures of the new Testament. Now do you understand the reason for their arrogance and Pride?
Not just that. TPM ministers love to have a say in every decision in the personal lives of its members. They have built a myth that they are closest to God and so believers ask the pastors and take their answer as if God has spoken. This makes believers stay as infants and never growing in their relationship to God. And how do they accomplish creating such a myth? Here is an excerpt from the 11th Std sunday school syllabus.
—-“The priests of the Old Testament are a type of the anointed and consecrated
servants of God in the New Testament. The High Priest of the Old Testament speaks of the office of the apostles which has the pre-eminence in the New Testament priesthood” —-
So here TPM has directly violated the teaching of NT. The New Testament (Heb 4) clearly says that Jesus ALONE is the high priest and according to 1 Peter 2:9 all believers are the ROYAL PRIESTHOOD. But TPM has invented a LIE saying they are the HIGH PRIEST (can you believe it?!). And members buy into this myth and live thinking pastors are like the high priest who had exclusive access to God in the most holy place.
I too was a part of TPM church since my birth n my parents still continue going there. But God mercifully brought me out of that church n I go to an independent church, not of any denomination, Spirit baptized church who r involved in mission work, gospel work, n I could say its a growing church, we love Jesus. After coming out of TPM did I come to know the non biblical things that they teach. The Spirit of legalism is working mightily. People believers r under the yoke that they carry, which brings no fruit.
But my question is, even though there are so many, so so many flaws in their doctrines, but there are still numerous people who love God, who r sincere. Even workers who really want to serve God. And God does speak to them n through them. Holy Spirit God is also working in midst of them. How can it be a cult? If church is following Alwyn’s doctrine, they r also somewhere following Pastor Paul’s doctrine.
These r just few doubts, as I myself am bit confused after reading the blogs.
Thank you for the comment. Yes, we believe that a good number of TPM Believers and TPM Ministers are sincere folks who are led astray by the evil doctrine of TPM. That is the reason we have invested our time and money into this site. We do not have any other motive than showing people the truth of Jesus Christ as per the Bible.
TPM is a cult because they are deceptive in the way they work. But their intentions are surely cancerous. Please check this page to know why TPM is a Cult. Holy Spirit works in each one of our lives. But that does not mean that we obey the voice of the Spirit. I can continue to manipulate and do all wretched things and still say Holy Spirit is working in us. If you have any doubts, please check out the first 3 chapters of Revelation. You can see the Spirit of Jezebel, Balaam and Nicolaitans working in them. The same spirits are ruling in TPM along with Satan’s agents.
ALL TPM SPECIFIC Doctrines are from Alwyn. Not even ONE we can identify as the product of Pastor Paul and is not Generic.
By TPM SPECIFIC we mean Doctrines and practices which you cannot find in other Pentecostal churches, but can notice it in TPM.
Almost of Doctrines and Practices that we are rebuking in this site is the product of Alwyn and his followers.
BRO/ SIS..why r u doing this kind of things. don’t judge others. Jesus is coming soon. don’t thing u r too intelligent . if u r in good responsible person to tell truth (about bible) go and preach. there r many places whr the people never hear about Jesus. then u will get rewards from Jesus. u know the enemy of a christian is no other a christian. brother don’t waste time and grace of god . i thing u much troubled by TPM.Any how no one know how much true is in ur testimony. god sees every thing . this is not a right way.remember if a man built a church it never grow but by Jesus it will be multiple more and more. u know why iam sending this comment because iam praying for the persons like u.brother don’t blame any church. the church name will never enter in to heaven. the believers (son of Jesus) will enter. by this comment i thing u didn’t change ur way. but god will ask u one day about this comment .
What you are telling is the only reason why people have been deceived till now.
Please let me know what do you understand by the Following Verses
-1 Thessalonians 5:21
Also tell me how are you supposed to follow those commandments. Shall we just ignore those parts?
//if a man built a church it never grow but by Jesus it will be multiple more and more.//
Not true. Just look at the Roman Catholic Church, LDS or the Jehovah Witness. The only, THE ONLY way to recognize if a church is true is by comparing its teaching with the word of God and also by looking at the fruits that they produce.
ALSO look @ islam now a days , the way it out numbers in most countries …
#look @ islam now”
This is not the way Apostate. Rather, let every eye be fixed upon Jesus, who is the way, the truth and the life.
Why? Because Jesus is the resurrected and living Son of God, set at the right hand of God the Father of glory in heavenly places. Ephesians 1:20
Let’s look at this glorious vision described in Revelation 7:9-10 where we behold the great heavenly not earthly throng – “After this I beheld, and, lo, a GREAT MULTITUDE, which NO MAN COULD NUMBER, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.”
Here, the numbers of the multitude in heaven are so great that no one could count them!
Apostate, let’s see what are these (multitude of persons) which are arrayed in white robes?
Verse 14 tells us that ‘these are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb’.
Now, it is Jesus and he alone, who gives the white robes of (his imputed) righteousness to those who have faith in him. Jesus is the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, and by his blood we are justified and saved from the wrath of God. See Revelation 13:8 and Romans 5:9
Our sins are washed away, and are forgiven when we confess our sins, and we are made clean from all unrighteousness. See 1 John 1:7,9
Jesus told us, Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. John 15:20
Thus, Christians will be persecuted for their faith in Jesus.
Paul and Barnabas, also, after preaching the gospel of Jesus and teaching the word of God, had to confirm the souls of the disciples, and exhort them to continue in the faith, saying, that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. See Acts 14:22
Now, the Bible teaches that all those who look unto Jesus, who receive Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour and Lord, whose hearts express true repentance of their sins, who believe on Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins, they will be with Jesus forever in that heavenly abode above, the Jerusalem which is above, which is spiritually entered by faith, and which is free. For all those born of the Spirit of Christ are children of the freedom and liberty that is in Christ Jesus.
The Bible also says the kingdom of heaven is entered through much tribulation. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
Apostate, there are battles to overcome in this world by the power of God’s word, by the Spirit of God, and by the faith of Jesus. He that overcometh the world believes that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and is born of God. This is the victory that overcomes the world!
God would have all men to be saved and come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:4
Dear Apostate, this website seeks to lead people to Christ Jesus and into the glorious liberty Christians have in him. See Romans 8:21
I thank God for this outreaching ministry.
Do you want eternal life and to know the love of God?
This is truly your inheritance if you believe the witness of God and the testimony of Jesus as is written in the Bible.
May God bless you in believing and receiving Christ as your Saviour.
What do u mean by “church is growing”. Church and buildings will grow if money or the tricks how to generate money. What about the spiritual growth? Have you experienced anywhere among TPM believers the love, patience, or any other fruit of the spirit. TPM has gone a long way out of its track. But still a group of innocent people who are not aware of their fallen priests but walk according to the scripture are there, God preserves the church. As far as doctrines are concerned, let us follow the doctrines of Jesus. No apostle or scholar is higher than Jesus. If you are filled by the love of Jesus, he will lead you in the right path. If someone would like to come out of TPM, I will appreciate if you can show him a right fellowship.
Thank u for the reply. Whatever u said in the light of the word of God is so true. Spirit of pride, self righteous, looking down at other churches n so many other things r the main things going on TPM churches, even in Sunday msg the preachings r all about workers n how they r better than other churches.
Workers n believers of the TPM church where I used to attend say that I have backsliden but I must say after coming out of TPM there is a great sense of Spiritual freedom n i’m growing in the Lord without any fear n bondage. Before, I literally feel I was possessed with the spirit of TPM. I used to get angry n wild if any one used to speak about TPM, spirit of legalism was mightily at work but now I’m free. Praise God. I really pray that God may deliver His people from yoke that is not from Him. Praise God for your good work
I used to be a vociferous defender of TPM doctrines on Orkut (back when Orkut was still the thing). I used to get so angry withex TPM believers and I was so zealous for TPM.
Though TPM has basic tenants of Christianity like the divinity of Jesus, trinity, etc right, the atmosphere is definitely cultic. Elitism, spiritual pride, mind control and keeping members scared by threatening them of consequences from God is rampant. Just this morning I had an argument with my aunt (a staunch TPM believer) regarding 1 Cor 9:5 where it says the apostles and Peter took their wives along with them during the ministry. I asked her if TPM’s ministry is better than the early apostles. She positively replied saying TPM ministers are better because they are not married and that the early apostles didn’t get the “revelation” that TPM ministers have.
Haha..Brother your aunt is definitely living in delusion, but our sincere prayers will set her free.
Yes TPM Definitely has some things right and that itself is the trick. Telling the basic things right sounds good for a non-TPM guy. Hence they do not get into conflicts with TPM. But the poison is added when you are into it.
If someone wants to kill you, they will not give you a bottle of poison for you to drink. This is because you know that it is dangerous and you will refuse to drink it.
But a shrewd enemy will first befriend you then gain your confidence and then get your guards down. Then he will add just one drop of poison in a glass of milk and may add few spoons of Complan to show that he cares for you. But his intention is to finish you off. I am telling you that this second plan will surely succeed if you are not protected by God.
The Milk is the right part of the Doctrine of TPM.But that ONE DROP OF POISON…Is the destroyer which will take your life.
That is called Deception
I am not telling that all TPM Ministers are deceptive. In fact, most of them are not. Rather they themselves are deceived and is totally deluded in thinking that their doctrines are TRUE, which is the greatest deception. The Greatest Deception is when someone is under a delusion and is used as a tool to deceive others by the master deceiver (Satan).
She definitely is and so are most. Paul rightly said in Galatians “A little leaven leavens the whole lump.”. That is exactly what has happened in TPM.
Your case is similar to most of us. Once we were blind TPM Fanatics. We had the spirit of getting into conflict with people who oppose us. We never had the Love of Christ within us even to hear what others had to say. But God was merciful to us and loved us in spite of our attitude and wretchedness. Hence we have the responsibility to show others the truth especially when we remember that they are like how we were earlier.
Sister, I appreciate your courage and honesty in coming out openly and sharing your views . Please share this website with other TPM Folks whom you love and used to fellowship with.
Sangita…..You are really a backslider. No doubt. There is nothing called spirit of TPM.
You are contradicting in your statements. Please do not be deceived. It’s not God who has taken you out of TPM. Deceiving spirit has taken you out. Be careful that you do not end up in getting hell by thinking you have got freedom.
Sorry to say that you are infected with this deadly disease of TPM where you are taught that if you leave TPM, you will end up in hell…
I feel sorry for people who are trapped in this horrible cult that binds every people in it.
Thank God for people like Sangita who broke the shackles of Bondage and came out. Jesus is still in the business of setting captives free
Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
It is when I hear statements like these I’m more sure of the cultic atmosphere in TPM. A tpm believer actually thinks God began building his church in 1920. What a farce!
“love TPM” demonstrating the ‘spirit of TPM” whilst denying the existence of the’ spirit of TPM’. Oh the irony!
Backslider? Really? Hell for leaving TPM? Seriously? Get a life brother. Oh, but how you may ask… From the very author of life, Lord Jesus. But do you know Him? Don’t be deluded. The church is not a building, it’s the body of Christ, if I must remind you. But you’ve been told that all other denominations are”namesake” Christians and only yours is the true Church. Read the scriptures all over again without a prejudiced mind, especially 1 Corinthians 12 to 14. Remember, there were no chapters and verses when St. Paul wrote to the church in Corinth. Read it as a single letter and then come back and comment. God bless you.
My friend is asking for a Tamil version of this site. Is it happening anytime soon ?
We hope to bring that out soon,But really cannot predict as the Tamil folks with us have been having tough time typing in Tamil…But surely we will try our best.
Have a look at tamil.changathi.com this website. It is enough if you type in english, this site will translate it to tamil instantly for you. This will definitely boost the speed at which you / your guys could create tamil articles, exponentially.
Let me first start off by being appreciative and grateful to the admin for the incidents he/she/they are bringing to light. A million thanks! I was a tpm believer before but I’ve stepped out because I had witnessed hypocrisy done by the so called “consecrated servants of God who preach that they may present us prefect before Christ” and its been about 2 years, and to be honest, i have peace of mind now. I’ve been reading these blogs from the beginning of November. My first brush with the reality of tpm’s stupidity and massive deception happened last year when i read “To Tpm with Love” by David Paul. However my parents are still believers at Tpm, i shared many incidents of crime, be it murder, rape, molestation or homosexuality, and my parents do understand that Tpm is a horrible place to be in, but they are unable to step out because of social pressure, i fear for their lives and their eternity. The other day, i met a Tpm minister and as the conversation progressed it got ugly because all tpm people consider ex-tpm members as “backsliders” , i believe that’s a plain and simple case of spiritual pride, anyway, i happened to ask him a lot of questions regarding the doctrinal errors and he didn’t have answers, he was more focused on shutting my mouth from asking questions, he told me “You should never question more than how much you can comprehend, if you ask questions, God will question you too”. i told him that such hollow threats and scare tactics didn’t scare me anymore and God wasn’t his pet to question me just cz i questioned the erroneous doctrines and obviously he wasn’t amused. i request you to please elucidate more about the misdeeds happening inside and please give more proof. I really appreciate what you are doing, please keep it up. i hope more people read your blogs and get out of predicament named tpm. God bless you!
You are right brother. When questioned they will have no reply but immediately start cursing the questioner. Initially, I came to know of this attitude when I asked some questions to a minister who came visiting my home. When he could not answer my questions, he started threatening me with dire consequences because he is a “consecrated servant of God” and I am a useless believer.
He went away from my house a very angry man. That was the key for me to understand that these people are not ministers of Christ but are “workers of iniquity”
They run their ministry by deceit, threats, and scripture twisting.
Don’t they just love to hold people in fear? Their main source of strength is the fact that there are tens of thousands of people who believe every word they say and pay them their hard earned money. They love controlling people so much. I remember this instance when I visited Sharjah faith home a couple of years back, during the Friday service Pas Sunny was beckoning people to move to the front cz there were a few vacant spots in the front however that didn’t evoke a good response from the believers and that pissed him off so much that he had the audacity to say “You should consider our words as words spoken by God himself and obey implicitly”. I was so taken aback by what he said and marveled at how he could get away with saying something so blasphemous. My mind raced to Acts 12:21-23 that time. It’s shocking how they have the audacity to say totally ridiculous and blasphemous things and people follow it wholeheartedly. When will our people wake up from this slumber and realize that Tpm is leading them to eternal destruction?
But surely people are waking up from the messages we are getting, we are sure that God is waking up people from the bondage and slumber they are in. Let us not faint in well-doing. Surely God will bring us through.
The Vision of the TPM Minister will get fulfilled. Hope you had a chance to read this Blog. Click Here
Yes sir, I did have a chance to read it last month. I have read all the posts. Very enlightening. Excellent work. Kudos to you. 🙂
