Then Jesus went into the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those selling doves. 13And He declared to them, “It is written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer.’ But you are making it ‘a den of robbers.’”
Just like Jesus, we would have liked to do this Literally with TPM, but then let us start it via the digital media. TPM is just another religious business concerned with money making but much more complex in their deceptive techniques.
This article is being written to highlight different kinds of covetousness in TPM which claims to be the only true church. As an insider, I will cite few examples to showcase the depth of corruption within this organization. In 1 Timothy 6:10 St. Paul says, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.
The ministers in TPM who emphasize much on celibacy & divine healing are in bondage of the love of money from which stems all evil. I believe that TPM is one of the organizations where the inflow of money is of a very high volume. Many innocent believers who think that their welfare depends on the tithes & offerings, they faithfully give to the priest. But they are least aware that our blessings come from God through Christ Jesus and not by giving tithes and offerings. As a result, they place more confidence in their ministers & pour money into their pockets. They are made to believe that their ministers do pray for them & praise God on their behalf at night & in the morning. Sad to say the ministers are also content to be brokers between God & the members of their assembly for the sake of money. These ignorant believers don’t know that in most of the faith homes the so-called prayers & praising are the place & time for their ministers to slumber & sleep.
I have heard about an elder brother that he would sleep till 9 or 10 in the morning. One Sunday, this particular elder kept sleeping till the singing got over. When the elder was not seen till then, one believer went and looked through the window to find him sleeping with a snore. The believer woke him up and within a few minutes the elder got ready and went straight to pulpit just to preach. You can imagine what kind of preaching it would have been. This is just one case, for your information. Many are still concealed. Many of the senior sisters sleep in prayer & praisings but they are very much enthusiastic to visit homes. You may think that they are very concerned about the believers. NO! It’s just a routine visit to collect the money.
Some actions within the Den of the Thieves
Some may think that why I am highlighting the mistakes of the TPM ministers. In fact, I don’t find any fun by doing this but I am doing this just to bring an awareness to the poor believers. I want them to know how they are being deceived by them whom they blindly believe. I would like to cite few examples that I have experienced, for your information.
This incident is regarding a Center Pastor, whose identity I am not disclosing with an intention to save his face. This particular Centre Pastor would tell the local ministers to give him more money always then he would keep them in big assemblies. Once a local senior sister offered him Rs.10,000/- to have a brother of her choice. Can you believe this? You blame the corruption in your country but what about the corruption in your organization? Do you know the reason why he demands more money from the ministers under him? He said it seems that if he offered a good amount to the headquarters then only they would keep him in big centers. Is it not a kind of covetousness? Covetousness of place & cash. I hope you understand how this rotten worm of corruption has eaten up the entire organization right from the Chief Clergy of TPM.
This is about another incumbent Centre Pastor(Presently in a South Indian Center). After the workers meeting, he would give the local-in-charge & senior sisters, empty envelopes with the amount written over it. He expects these subordinates to fill the envelopes with the said money and return back to him before the next meeting. Is it not a kind of extortion? Why all these things and what do we name these kinds of actions? RELIGIOUS EXTORTION. Dawood Ibrahim in Religious garb.
A late Centre Mother after her death, when the suitcases were opened it was found that 2,3 of them were full of money. It took three days for 2 sisters to finish counting the money. What was the intention to accumulate such huge amount? This amount is not only the offerings and tithes of some rich believers but it includes the offerings of many poor people. These poor believers give the offerings to such covetous ministers and live with scarce food & facilities. As I mentioned earlier, these are just examples. So many rotten things are seen if you are a minister like me, inside this corrupt organization.
Do you know what happens to the tithes and offerings you give them? You may see some palatial buildings in the name of faith homes especially huge buildings at the convention site. All these buildings are used once or twice a year and for the rest of the days, they remain locked. There are some poor believers whose house roofs leak during the rains and these so-called consecrated ministers have no heart to make a house or at least help them repair their leaking housetop. Ok, leave making a house or give them monetary help to repair the house; will they allow these poor people to stay in the huge buildings, they make with the money of their believers? Poor people have no place but rich people who pump money can stay as long as they desire. Is it not because of the love of money?
I ask the rich believers, are you being a good steward of the money God has given you? Do not think that you will escape judgment? God will surely require this from you. Giving to religious robbers are a SIN. When your fellow believers are struggling, you are giving away the money to an organization running a religious business. You think your responsibility is over after you throw some peanuts at the poor? Maybe you can soothe your conscience, but God will require this from you.
By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:16-18
Check this out for yourself
If you have attended at least one convention of TPM especially in Kottarakara & Chennai. The Pastors are given cot, bed & two huge pillows when many believers sleep on the floor without proper mats or pillow. About Jesus we read that, He made himself poor to make us rich but with TPM Pastors it is just the opposite. In the name of consecration, they are enjoying what they perhaps couldn’t have enjoyed had they not joined this organization. In Chennai the dining hall for the Pastors is different and you will find all kinds of delicious & good quality food there. No small brother or even a senior elder can go there unless he is a prominent or star figure. You can notice one funny thing there. When an elder is ordained a pastor, for the very next meal he will go to the Pastor’s dining hall. Doesn’t it show that how covetous they are for food? Many TPM workers are in bondage of food & they have no victory over food.
Whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things. Philippians 3:19
Truly the apostle Paul knew these false workers who masquerade as saints. They are Gluttonous and know only to fleece money. God declares that such a sin will not be forgiven
The LORD Almighty has revealed this in my hearing: “Till your dying day this sin will not be atoned for,” says the Lord, the LORD Almighty. Isaiah 22:14
When these people talk about consecration, perfection & Zion it really irritates me a lot.
The sight of rich people occupying the comfortable rooms & enjoying the special food in special dining hall & poor people sleeping on the floor & standing in long queues under the hot sun for the food is heart-rending. In Mark 12:42,43, we can see that Jesus considered the two mites of poor widow more valuable than the huge offerings of the rich people. But what about the TPM ministers? For them, the huge amount is more important and that’s why rich people are given special accommodation & treatments. Once again in Luke 9:13,14 when Jesus fed multitudes with five loaves and two fish, he made all to sit in a group of fifty. Can we say that no prominent or rich people were there in the crowd? There could have been people with different status yet, Jesus made all sit in groups of fifty without any discrimination. How can we say that these TPM ministers are following the footsteps of Jesus the chief apostle? All these discriminations stem from the root of love of money.
My dear friends, what is your opinion about these things that I have highlighted? Can such people make you perfect? St. Paul in Colossians 3:5 says that covetousness or greed is equal to idolatry, May it be the greed for comfort, position, food, name-fame or money. According to Revelation 21:8 all the idolators will have their part in the lake of fire. Why don’t you consider all these facts and come out of the covetous system and covetous people? Before I conclude I suggest you visit Christian Fellowship Church of Zac Poonen if you happen to go to Bangalore. There you will find some beautiful conditions displayed if anyone wants to give any offering. May God bless you.
