TPM – Roman Catholicism in Pentecostal Garb

We have compiled a list of doctrines and practices that is exclusive to the Roman Catholic Church and The Pentecostal Mission. Isn’t it interesting that none of these doctrines/practices can be found in other protestant churches? Do these stem from God or did TPM borrow from the RCC owing to Alwyn’s controlling mentality?

 

Doctrine/PracticeThe Pentecostal MissionRoman Catholic Church
1.    Mandatory celibacy of clergy
2.    Clergy is referred to as the “consecrated servants of God”
3.    Church leaders are called “father”
4.    Clergy – Laity distinction
5.    Sexual abuse and sins are covered up
6.    Immoral church leaders are not excommunicated but are transferred to a different centre/parish
7.    Extra-biblical revelations
8.    Claims to be the only true church/best church there is
9.    Claims to have infallible doctrines
10. Claims those outside the organisation have incomplete truth.
11. Claims church leaders are priests of the New Testament
12.  Pastors/Priests are the highest authority after God
13.  Sainthood of a select few
14.  Membership required to take communion
15.  Only priests can give communion
16.  Leaving the denomination is “backsliding”
17.  Sex viewed as something that defiles.
18.  Clergy has a particular way they must dress
19.  Middlemen between a believer and Jesus
20.  Claims to be the only church that can rightly interpret scripture.
21. Claims to be the only church that can prepare the bride of Christ
22. Authority of the words from a church leader is equal to scripture
23. Perseverance by works
24. Vain Repetitions– Catholics have their “hail Marys” and TPM has its “Praise the Lords”.
25. Points to the Church instead of Christ
26. Works Based Theology
27. Followers are zealous for the Church Organization. Bible is just an icon to be used, not to to be studied and followed

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” (Colossians 2:8)This by no means is an exhaustive list, but one can see that many of the practices and doctrines in TPM are borrowed from the Catholic Church. If you say that God gave these doctrines to the Catholic Church, what evidence do you have? Please show us from scripture where the early church held these practices. If you don’t think these doctrines/practices came from God, why do you still have them? For Christ said not to nullify the word of God by your man-made traditions (Mark 7:13)

“So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.” (2 Thessalonians 2:15)

  1. Whenever I talk to ex tpm pastors, they always say TPM is the Pentecostal version of Roman Catholic church. What a comparison, great work, keep it up.

  2. One more to add to this near complete list:
    If you marry outside the church, there’s a 6 month ban in both TPM & RCC for the family members.

    1. The church in Bangalore goes even further. If a believer attends a marriage of another TPM believer in a non-TPM church, the punishment applies to those who attend as well.

      1. I agree that they do not make many issues if it is another pentecostal group. But I know of parents who were excommunicated whose Son (who never used to come to TPM) went and married a CSI Girl.

        1. If this is true, I could expect the same in coming days as one of the TPM believer I know is going to get married to a Hindu girl (says shes a secret Christian)

      2. You are one lucky fellow then. Tell me honestly, are you from a financially well-to-do family or probably been in for a very very long time. Generational followers of TPM. Either of them has to be true.
        Recently at one of the weddings, the groom’s friends stuck a few flowers on his car. Nothing else, no decorations, no lightings, no expensive dresses. Still, the groom’s family member had to issue a public apology in the mic for it! How ridiculous is this!

        1. Well I’m neither from a financially well to do family nor a long time believer 🙂 The reason I believe is that I do have some good relation with few of TPM pastors ! Even though I’m a TPM believer I don’t agree with majority of TPM doctrines. Hence I took a decision not to get married from TPM 🙂

        2. Ah! There you go brother. I missed that point. A very valid one too. During our wedding, some friends of my wife’s brother burst crackers and we had to face a 6 month ban for that as somebody complained to the center pastor. However, as I was very close to the pastor (he is no more now. he always used to tell me that they’re plotting against him and trying to kill him!), he didn’t conduct any communion service till our ban period was over!

        3. Dear brother
          For my marriage they forced to removed the veil of the bride, they created a big issue for cutting a cake and giving each other, since it was arranged already in the auditorium by the decorations team and friends, after a long argument they accepted not to give in mouth but in hand, u can imagine how embarrassing the situation would be,
          I don’t know from which earth do they being to, I am not feeding someone’s wife my own wife, created a mess for wearing gown. And after marriage they created a mess for wearing a gown, and forced to remove it before back home, u can imagine the situation before our guest, and next is rushing for time, during marriage and funeral I don’t know for wat do they do it, don’t even consider the greaving family member’s,
          For photo graph after marriage they create mess, for no time, this happens only once in his life time still they rush I don’t know for wat,
          I had a very bad experience I hate them most for this is during funeral, my cousin expired and his father was running around to give money to each and every pastor’s and sisters who have been there, and also they forced indirectly “have u seen him” never try to be a human,

        4. Sorry brothers, but can you please explain what is this “have you seen him” thingy? I’m sure many of us would be interested to know.

        5. Brother Santosh,
          Let me explain with an example.
          This happens when you go to discuss with a particular pastor any matter. Towards the end of the discussion, you give him some offering and He will inquire “have you seen/met the center mother?” knowing very well that you did not see her. He wants you to go to the center mother to see her. As is customary in TPM, you give some offering to the Centre Mother. Now towards the end of your discussion with Center Mother, she asks you, Have you seen the brother who has recovered from a grave disease. He is getting better. Have you seen/met him?. You reply as “NO”. She requests you specifically to see this brother who had a miraculous recovery. Then as usual you see this brother and he also gets some offering from you…..The Story Continues…. Multi Level Marketing at its best

        6. Aha! That’s something I missed observing. Probably didn’t notice it so clearly. 🙁 My bad. But thanks for the explanation. 🙂

      3. Brother my cousin is getting married in Church of God. The “servants of God” in her church have stopped helping them during the marriage. To get to speak to them also has become a difficult thing it seems.

  3. Dear Admn –> A fearful & Heir of Judas Iscariot !!!!

    I happen to visit this site and read almost all your new found revelations and I was silently awaiting Yashua’s indication then the Spirit of the God inspired me towards Psalms 2:4 – He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

    Pls introspect yourself…..now you must be feeling SMART INDEED but time is still there, dear ones Repent & Surrender to the Lord. Mend your own ways rather than directing TPM folks as all the so-called fanatics of TPMs are purely humans with all the senses working perfectly. Above all, the Holy Spirit of God is there to lead each & one to its destination.

    If some amongst the Servants of the Lord has some sins or fallings…..DARE you to Whitewash All. Can you challenge, the blood relations of your own family is as CLEAN as you suppose to be. Just look into your own family or yourself within….please for God’s sake STAY AWAY with the Doctrines & Mentalities of Judas Iscariot.

    When you make blames, accussations & tell all rubbish….you are equally RESPONSIBLE to show a CLEAN & CORRECT CHURCH…..and I hope it couldnt be FROMTPM CHURCH which is PERFECT as being designed & painted because the so called fromtpm.com team plays in hiding only so how can you establish a perfect church.

    At the end, my only prayer…..May the Almighty Enlighten your trackless journey ahead.

    JEREMIAH

    1. Hello Jeremiah,
      You thought we are fearful? Why do you think we are openly rebuking and correcting TPM’s Unbiblical practices and doctrines? Is that some fearful person’s work?

      Our Answer


      We do not have any new found revelations. New Found Revelations are a proprietary to TPM where they dabble with JW and RC doctrines to bring out their eliteness. What we are proclaiming here is plain and simple Word of God. We challenge you to prove us wrong. This kind of ranting is just not doing any good for you but rather exposing the standard of TPM Believers.

      Our Answer


      This site is solely for the purpose of exposing the wrong doctrines and practices of TPM. So we have limited ourselves to it. Read the About US Section. If we had to expose the works of TPM Ministers, we might end up having an XXX rating for our site as that is what we often see. So be cautious before you start accusing us of that. Don’t provoke us to start a new site for that purpose.

    2. Jeremiah, Calling names is a sign that you have nothing of substance to say. Did Jesus call names when people asked him questions? It’s amusing that you quoted Psalms 2:4 which has nothing to do with the article. If you really were so concerned, you would have provided scriptural support for the doctrines/practices mentioned in the article. Something tells me you’d rather follow an organization blindly without making sure if they are scripturally sound.

      1. Poor thing hasn’t read his bible for long. After frantically searching for 2 months, he somehow thought he can fit the psalm verse against the site owners and start his cursing exercise. So he took that as an unction by the Holy Spirit. I guess, that is a good example of a TPM believer’s standard.

        1. It’s another case of TPM believers seeing their pastors in scripture when it isn’t speaking about them. I wish he knew Psalm 2 was messianic and was referring to Jesus as the anointed one. Instead of seeing Jesus they see their pastors just as in real life their pastors have become the mediator between God and themselves.

  4. Brother Jeremiah, the author highlighted lot of similarities between tpm and rc. If you’re finding them incorrect expose it instead of babbling.

    Doesn’t make any difference both are same blindly argue without reading the scripture, I really wonder why don’t they read Scripture,

    Threats, curses, abuse words, twisting, mind control and manipulation
