The Duck test of TPM Lifestyle

There is an old English saying which is commonly called “The Duck Test“. It goes this way.

“If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it is a duck.”

Duck test is applicable universally, for anything which you suspect to be. The bible too gives us the reason to conduct a duck test.  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.  I Thess 5:21.

In fact, the Bible also asks us to proactively do this sifting activity at the onset itself.  Let us go to the Next verse. Abstain from all appearance of Evil I Thess 5:22

If a particular thing Appears to be evil/Immoral/Unrighteous,  we need to Abstain and turn aside from that. Even if people argue in favor of that particular thing if it appears to be wrong, stay away from it. Let us now put the Faith Home Style Living to this test.

Few Terms and its Meanings


The Dictionary meaning of a LIVE-IN RELATIONSHIP is as follows. I have copied it verbatim from a Google search.

A living arrangement in which an unmarried couple lives together in a long-term relationship that resembles a marriage. Couples cohabit, rather than marry, for a variety of reasons. They may want to test their compatibility before they commit to a legal union.

I would also like to bring in another term which many people might not be aware of. This Term is called Polyamorous relationship. It means multi-partner free relationship. People who identify as polyamorous typically reject the view that sexual and relational exclusivity are necessary for deep, committed, long-term loving relationships. Those who are open to, or emotionally suited for, polyamory may embark on a polyamorous relationship when single or already in a monogamous or open relationship.


Godly or Evil? You Decide

Now what our TPM Faith Homes tempt the inmates  is a potent mix of  Live-in + Polyamorous relationship Lifestyle. I know that our TPM Diehard folks might feel we are speaking a blasphemous thing about the TPM Saints. But Blasphemy or no Blasphemy, for us the Scripture is the ONE AND ONLY BENCHMARK.

We are openly discussing these things unlike the rumor gossip mills within the TPM system. Are we saying something which is non-existent in TPM? Absolutely NO. We know of such relationships in TPM exists and that too in the Higher Echelons of TPM Clergy System. We know of very well respected Pastors and Mothers/Sisters who were in this kind of relationships. The sources we have is very credible and non-refutable. But we would desist from taking names as that is not what we are trying to expose. However spiritual a person is, we should never put our flesh to test in the kind of things which TPM Lifestyle does. This is UNBIBLICAL.

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Ephesians 5:3

Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18. Now please do not tell me that such an evil tempting and testing lifestyle is a GODLY or GOD ORDAINED ONE. Please do not blame God for it. Blame your Mission founders.

When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; James 1:13

Such a system is not even accepted by a Worldly moral person, leave alone a Spiritual one.

Other Celibate Ministers

In this regard, I think that Roman Catholics, Brahmakumaris & many other organizations are maintaining a separation. In those organizations unlike TPM,  the priest & nuns/priestess reside on two different premises. There could be filthiness within some of these organizations but, in the sight of the normal people, they are not maintaining a questionable lifestyle. Even though the questions are not in open about TPM ministers lifestyle but it’s offensive and you cannot hide it anymore. TPM Leaders, Come Clean on this. In India, like many other countries, live-in relationships are legalized but considered immoral by the public. All of us know that TPM celibates, male & female members are living in the same building. Here the question is not whether they are moral or immoral within the house but what difference it has from the live-in relationships?

Paradoxical Teaching

Interestingly these are the people who are teaching us Morality. Come to think of it. How do they expect people, especially youths to take their words seriously? We are in receipt of a circular from TPM which was read out in the Faith Homes a few months back. It has many norms and conditions for the TPM boys and girls. We do not accept a sexually promisous lifestyle. However, My dear TPM youths have you ever paid attention that your ministers who are applying so many rules on you are not the least under the same rule? Do you know that they are more than equal to you? They prohibit boys and girls to have contacts over the phone or through emails. At the same time, you can find the very people are not ashamed to borrow the mobiles of believers to talk to their beloved partners.  Let me ask a question, will your church ministers permit any of your unmarried male & female members to stay together in the same house at least for a day? It’s a far cry. In fact, if they see one boy & girl stand alone and speak for few minutes, the stories will be concocted that both boy & girl are not good. From then onwards they will be under a strict surveillance of some narrow-minded believers & ministers.

TPM Circular follows.

The Duck test of TPM Lifestyle

 

The Duck test of TPM Lifestyle

Why this double standard?

If the TPM ministers consider it a sin for unmarried male and female members to stay together then why are they living together? Should they be allowed to do and live as they like just because they are in white outwardly and call themselves the consecrated ministers? Consider Jesus our Lord & Saviour, before he gave some command to His followers He practiced those things before them. We can see that how Jesus first washed the feet of His disciples and then gave the command to them, “I am your Teacher and your Lord, and I have washed your feet. So, you should wash each other’s feet also ( John 13:14)”.

Conclusion

I advise the TPM ministers to not impose many rules on ignorant people, which you yourselves are not following. Stop fooling the people and first of all you be an example that others can follow. Instead of being hard masters to use different whips in the name of leading the people to perfection, you come out of things which are offensive. “And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him” (Ephesians. 6:9). Stop misusing the position to threaten the people if they don’t follow your rules. This is because In the first place you are not the perfect example.

Secondly, I call upon the readers especially the TPM youths, please wake up. Don’t be fools to follow the blind guides, who are not the good examples to follow. Have the courage to stand up against things which are not right. All these days you lived under the fear that, some curse would come upon you if you opposed the anointed.  “As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.” Proverbs.26:2

Please don’t think that I am trying to inculcate rebellion in you but an instinct to say no to the wrong deeds. Edmond Burke said, “all it takes for evil to prevail in this world is for enough good men to do nothing.”

Don’t be afraid of the hollow threatenings of the power hungry ministers of TPM and stand strong to overthrow the deceptive ways brought by them. May the Good God give good understanding to all TPM people to understand their own errors and turn from them. My dear reader, if you can’t change them then you better come out of them and be a part of some good fellowship which maintains the moral values of the land. You have your eternity at stake. Do not subcontract it to Agents like TPM Ministers. God bless you!

  1. I was wondering when this circular will come out in the open. This circular and the whatsapp circular was read together in our church. I could only laugh at the hypocrisy.

    What kind of a church threatens parents with excommunication for attending the marriage of their children in a different church? I couldn’t contain my disgust when I heard that read in the church. These guys have gone off the deep end.

    1. One thing that is clear to me, as for a long time- If you grease the palms of the workers, you are considered to be a good believer.

      If the yes men believers do not find you as one of them, they will do everything to destroy you, firstly by gossip- The only place where I have seen sinners judge the innocent simple children of God is in this church.

      The root of bitterness grows like a parasite and transfers from person to person like an evil spirit- I have asked myself why, many times- The answer I feel is because the TRUE righteousness and TRUE holiness is never practiced.
      Many innocent and sincere workers later become used to a second-hand, ‘made in Ceylon’ Christianity.

      Forgive me, if am not making sense to the majority of the church members.

      1. Absolutely. A few months before this circular, the pastors at my church forced a 60 year old believer to go in front of the church and ask pardon from everyone because his son got married in a different church. These guys are unreal. The kind of pain and embarrassment they put people through.

        1. Apologize for what? Did the son commit adultery with the express permission of the father? Was the wedding illegal by law? Did the parents forcibly marry off the youngsters? What nonsense?
          Who is accepting or rejecting apologies, on God’s behalf?
          In RCC, the priest is hidden like a church mouse and listens to confessions. In TPM, confessions are bandied and are made public.
          There is no respect for individuals here.

        2. Absolutely not. His son was like a brother to me. We grew up together. He just chose to get married outside tpm. That was his only “crime”. But tpm had to teach them a lesson, didn’t they? How dare someone from TPM get married in another denomination! So they chose to punish and embarrass his parents. It sickened me to watch that happen before my eyes.

      2. You are very true Brother Denzel Joy.. We are going to TPM (NTC in USA) for past few years. I don’t see any one, I mean anyone including minister , tender authentic spirit . No body trust any one.. I see insecurity, anger, resentment , over righteous, bossing over.. or so low spirit of with No joy…

        I asked the person who took us here .. why like this…. the reply was… you know what.. Jerusalem is built so compact. stones has to be placed close to each other.. so one stone has to rub(friction) another .. so we hurt each other all the time..

        The reason we still going is the platform we are given to pray freely , worship freely… some discipline we forced ourselves to develop .. Now and then we see bright light especially Junior brothers who came to ministry recently… As you told every one ignore them… despise them.. For me they are angels, who made humble my spirit, refined my heart… God Bless you Brother Denezel

        If you trusted the TPM ministers, you need to repent

      2. Hello James, we are not bothered if the lawyer is good or bad. That’s not the point of concern now. Not just the lawyer, the whole church said that pastor was murdered. And you shamelessly add a word “repent” in your comment. Why so stupid and silly.??Be sensible in your words. Ask the hypocrites in pentecost church to first repent

  2. I have read this observation on facebook. It was commented by someone (I think in TPM believers group). The person made observation “what difference is there between a Sisters of TPM and wife?” Wife prepares bed of husband, so are sister made to prepare bed of Pastor. A wife brings coffee to bed of brother so are sister asked to bring coffee to brothers and pastor. A wife washes clothes of husband and so are sisters made to wash clothes of Pastors and elder brothers. Wife prepare food for husband and so does sisters prepare food for pastors and brothers. She washes utensils and leftover plate of husband so are sisters in TPM made to wash leftover plate of TPM pastors and brothers. What do brothers do? They rebuke sisters and trouble them and boast that they are the ones doing ministry and sisters are just there to wash clothes and prepare food! A husband atleast labors hard to brings food for wife. However food for workers of TPM is brought from tithes of believers. So brother and Pastor does nothing more than gossiping, rebuking, and preaching heretical teaching.The System of TPM is evil and poor innocent people are being trapped in it.

    1. Brother Nath,

      Let the die hards take a print of this article and append it to the circular- That is the apt medicine for this practice of TPM.
      I care less about those things that they are trying to setup, but am more grieved about the families n-number of them, that were destroyed by this church. Tears have dried and Abel cries out from the ground. Yet TPM is boasting about the mark on their forehead and that they cannot be touched.

      1. I greatly tremble realizing what if I were a TPM servant and then came to realize the evil of TPM system after having spent my life in this treacherous system! Who would marry me at 40-50 of age? Where would i find Job to get food? What about my eternal life now after having preached TPM false doctrines. It would be like hanging in between heaven and hell. Oh can’t imagine what rain of tears that would bring!

        1. Bible clearly teaches that God instituted marriage as a covenant between one man and one woman, a lifelong union of two partners created in God’s image to govern and manage the earth for him.

          Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (Genesis 1:26-28)

          “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:5, Ephesians 5:31)

          And the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.” – Genesis 2: 18

  3. TPM Faith Homes(Brothers and Sisters) are a mix of red phosphorus, sulfur and potassium chlorate. It will cause fire. Why try such things. But if they catch fire, they are transferred and sold as harmless chemicals. When will people of TPM Learn?

    1. The faithhome set up of 4 AM praising was in direct competition to the 5AM praising by the Muslims.
      TPM until the late 90’s somehow thought that Islam was a sister religion to Christianity, similar to RCC. They were not aware that the god in Islam has nothing to do with YHWH, never has it been, although it was a faint imitation of Unitarianism in its nascent stages.

      25 years ago, Sunday School teachers were told in Bangalore faith homes, that since the teachers are one level above the believers and one rung lesser than the workers, they would need to wake up at 3AM instead of 4AM, and pray for the SS students at that hour only.
      Dissenting murmurs were soon hushed by enthusiastic diehards within the teachers group who would come up with their testimonies of the 3AM prayers.
      The same group will be seen lifeless in a common worship, because there is no life but forced animation going on here.

      I do not know if this is still practiced but anything that add merit to the flesh shall rot, that’s what Abraham learnt from his dream.

  4. I know of a lad, from very close quarters- A wonderful TPM youth, an unassuming person at that.

    In short, he was facing the same trial of Jephthah, rejection and ridicule, for no fault of his parents- They were the victims of a false prophesy by late Pas. ArulDas.
    Rejection continued from childhood till adulthood, and the only consolation he had got, I assume- came in the form of condescension.

    When time to be enquired of, in marriage came about- neither his siblings nor the church was willing to help- rather they would discourage prospects from any furtherance.

    He was openly sounded off, to fend for himself as his parentage is unknown (not true, just that his parents are not alive)
    The ones who ridiculed him were not just believers who pretended to help, but also workers upto a pastoral capacity.
    Siblings would urge him to make his own choice and move on… Church would stand to oppose any possible alliance, because it didnt stand to gain from taking responsibility for its own gossip.
    In short, they kept confusing him that they can only help him if he comes with his biological parents, very well knowing they are dead. (The person in question is still in contact with me over skype, and I can vouch for his pain and his statements)
    And for every rebuttal, the TPM workers would grin the verse- ALL THINGS FOR GOOD

    I wish to withhold more info, as I respect his privacy and have placed this comment with his foreknowledge.

    I request your silent prayers on his behalf.

  6. Dear James

    I understand ur anger, I hope u would have seen the pictures of pastor kanakaraj after his death,
    Can any one explain, how did he get hurt on his lips and gums and how did he get bleeding there,
    And please see the marks and bleeding on his neck, and why was it covered purposely when the body was kept in the mobile freezer,
    Adv has is nothing here, I know pastor kanakaraj personally, he is not like other pastors so humble and down to earth, and he even helped lot of poor people,
    Please tell me if u see ur own family member in such situations wat would u do,
    If u haven’t seen the pic I can arrange it since it was blocked by TPM controls , in sharing the truths. I can arrange for it so that u see it your self,
    Just simple common sense is enough,
    After seeing that u can decide,

    God bless u,

  7. The circular is signed by the TPM Chief Shepherd, so all TPM brethren bend down and obey what he says otherwise you are going to be left behind.

    The TPM workers are eunuchs, so they can live together. Haven’t you seen eunuch colonies in big cities and they live together.

    The truth is the male TPM believer has lost their masculinity and hence they cower down like chicks and don’t defend themselves or their families.

    Where have all the men gone? Stand up and fight the beast. How long are you going to be bullied by this anti christ system?
