This article is written to open up eyes of individuals who senselessly assume some circulars by TPM as divine dictates. While consciously pursuing your spiritual development is commendable, joining an established religious institution such as TPM is one of the worst ways to go about it. Most of TPM Folks are in it just because of their birth. Surely you’ve outgrown your baby clothes by now. Isn’t it time you also outgrew your baby religion? Are not your current beliefs merely a product of your environment and not the result of conscious choice? Move beyond your baby religion. Consider maturity as a reasonable alternative. Move out from Extremism to Godly Common Sense.

Many TPM Ministers are just brainwashed slaves themselves. They don’t have any real authority and aren’t even aware of the agenda being set by their superiors. This makes them better minions because they actually believe the made up rules they’re spouting and don’t know the truth behind it. They suffer from inherited falsehood just like everyone else in the Organization. Every time I see a TPM Minister, I somehow see a Pharisee before me. It Could be their dress, but sure they have an air of Pharisee within them.
You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:
8 “‘These people honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
9 They worship me in vain;
their teachings are merely human rules
Slaves Prompted Slavery
The more religious a person becomes, the less compassionate he/she is. The illusion of compassion substitutes for the real thing. Religious TPM folks tend to be the most bigoted and non-accepting people on earth. They’re the least trustworthy and suffer from the grossest character defects. They pretend they’re doing good, but they’re really collaborators in a system designed to push people into unconscious slavery to a “higher” authority. They are slaves promoting slavery.
“But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
45 One of the experts in the law answered him, “Teacher, when you say these things, you insult us also.(This is how TPM Ministers Say)”
46 Jesus replied, “And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them.”
The Psychosis of Fear
The Religion of TPM will teach you to fear being different, to fear standing up for yourself, and to fear being an independent thinker. It will erode your trust in God by explaining why you’re unable to successfully manage life on your own terms and you need the covering of the Clergy: You are unworthy. You belong to a lesser caste. You are not enlightened. Of course the solution is always the same — submit to the will of your Clergy. Believe that you’re inadequate. Give away your power. Follow their rules and procedures. Live in fear for the rest of your life, and hope it will all turn out okay in the end.
Fear in one part of your life invariably spreads to all other parts — you can’t compartmentalize it. If you find yourself frustrated because you’re too afraid to follow your dreams, to talk to members of the opposite sex, to speak up for yourself, etc., then a good place to start is to rid your life of all religious nonsense. Don’t let fear get a foothold in your consciousness.
Dump the safety-in-numbers silliness. Just because a lot of people believe stupid stuff doesn’t mean it isn’t stupid. It just means that stupidity is popular on this planet. When people are in a state of fear, they’ll swallow just about anything to comfort themselves.
“For God hath NOT given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
When you join TPM, your fellow mind-slaves will help to keep you in line, socially rewarding your continued obedience while punishing your disloyalty. Why do they do this? It’s what they’ve been conditioned to do. Tell your TPM friends that you’re going slow on TPM Bhakti because you want to think for yourself for a while, and watch the sparks fly. Suddenly you’ve gone from best friend to evil demon. There’s no greater threat to religious people in TPM than to profess your desire to think for yourself.
There are better ways to enjoy a sense of community than joining a slavery club. Try making friends with conscious, free-thinking people for a change. Why do you think Jesus was cool when he talked with Prostitutes and Tax Collecters? He was Free of the Religious Baggage you have on your back. You may find it intimidating at first, but it’s quite refreshing once you get used to it.
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees( Read TPM Ministers), you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.”
