This is truly appalling. As I was listening to the 4th Tamil song this year’s Chennai Convention I couldn’t believe the words I was hearing. It is a known fact that when TPM composes songs, they reserve one stanza for Zion, which is itself is a bad thing. But to compose an entire song glorifying them is pathetic, to say the least. The convention is traditionally the time when believers distribute flyers inviting unbelievers to church so that they know the gospel of Jesus. Instead, this year, those who come for TPM conventions will be forced to sing songs that worship TPM pastors. This is truly an abomination in the sight of God.
I wondered if such songs were in the English hymnbook as well. Surely nothing can top the heresy that is in the Tamil song of this year, right? Right? Well, I thought wrong. There are numerous TPM songs that exclusively worship TPM ministers from start to finish. As I was browsing through the hymnbook, I chanced upon this song (Song #385 in the TPM hymn book). Please pay attention to the lyrics in bold.
The Hymn that gives away the Evil Nature of TPM’s Doctrine
Hymn No. 385
Saviours in Zion
Stanza 1: Saviours shall ascend on Zion’s hill
There shall be deliverance and holiness
Their proclamation, “The kingdom is the Lord’s”
Shall resound and all earth fill.
Glory, honour, power unto our King
He is worthy to be praised;
He reigns in Zion, saints exalt Him
In the land of the living.
Stanza 2: Saviours through their prayers they’d proved to be
Saving men in sin and captivity
And interceding for saints in trials sore
Helped them through to victory. ‘
Stanza 3: Saviours making peace, they preached His word
And they worked to bring all to unity
Of the afflictions of Christ their part they bore
For the Church, by none deterred.
Stanza 4: Saviours bold in fight, they did contend
For the faith delivered to saints of yore
And greatly zealous to see the Church is pure
Ever strove they to that end.
Stanza 5: Saviours bearing men’s iniquity
In the Holy Place, stood they in the breach
They loved their people and poured their soul to death
Made them just, approved and free.
In the above “hymn”, TPM pastors call themselves “Saviours”. To summarise the above hymn,
- TPM pastors who go to Zion are saviours – usurping Jesus as the one and only saviour (1 Timothy 4:10)
- TPM pastors are saving men from sin and iniquity because of their prayers – usurping Jesus as the only one who saves men from their sins (Matthew 1:21)
- TPM pastors are interceding – usurping Jesus as the one who intercedes (Romans 8:34)
- TPM pastors bear a part of Christ’s afflictions on the cross – usurping Jesus as the only one who bore the punishment for our sins. (Isaiah 53:5)
- TPM pastors are striving to make the church pure – usurping Jesus as the one who makes His church pure (Ephesians 5:26)
- TPM pastors bear the sins of men – usurping Jesus as the only one who bore our sins. (1 Peter 2:24)
- TPM pastors are in the Holy Place – usurping Jesus as our only High Priest. (Hebrews 7:24-28)
- TPM pastors love men and poured their soul to death making people “just”, “approved” and “free” – TPM here claims believers are made “just” by the “pouring of their souls to death”, contradicting the very basis of our justification before God (Romans 5:1).
Deeper Truths in TPM is Anti-Christ Spirit in Operation
As you can see, TPM doesn’t know the gospel. What’s the point in all the supposed “deeper truths” when TPM doesn’t even know the basics of Christianity and have now walked into the territory of blatant heresy? If TPM pastors are operating on the basis of what the above song says, please think how much of their theology and sermons will be maligned with such heretical notions?
These are the pastors who preach to you on Sundays and take bible studies to share exclusive truths that they claim are not found in any other church. These are the men you depend on to hear biblical exposition. These are the men who claim to be “apostles” and have so much control over your lives. Are you willing to test these men who claim to be “apostles” and call them out to be false apostles? Or are you going to side with them even after seeing the heretical songs they compose? Is it really wise to be enslaved to a “church” such as this?
No other church I’ve heard of has stooped to this level of heretical teachings. Yet TPM has successfully managed to keep the believers in blindness thinking they are getting the best teachings on the planet. This has to be a deal breaker if you are a follower of Christ. One cannot in good conscience follow this church when the songs they compose are worshipping men instead of God.
The Anti-Christ Spirit that has been leading TPM always seeks to Replace and Usurp Christ.
I most probably would have sung this song as a staunch TPM believer, as would some of you who are reading this. This TPM hymn is the heresy of the highest order. This is just one of the many examples that can be taken from TPM hymnbooks. Every hymn book of TPM is filled with songs that worship the ministers. Songs like the one highlighted in the article make the great sacrifice of Jesus to mean nothing. TPM ministers claim every title that is rightly Jesus’. This is a power grab and an attempt to compete with Jesus, a battle they will lose every time. When the most basic tenets of the Christian faith (Jesus alone is the saviour who bore all our sins) is replaced with a teaching that says mere fallible men who claim to be “saviours” bore our sins and have poured out their souls to death for our justification, it isn’t Christianity anymore. This is a new religion invented by TPM.
