Injecting Poison to impressionable minds in TPM

We have been exposing so many erroneous teachings of The Pentecostal Mission.  In this article, I would like to highlight one more instance how TPM ministers always prefer to take pre-eminence in almost everything. This is in blatant violation to the following scriptures.

And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 1 Colossians 1:18

But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. Matthew 23:8

Molding the kids in their control

To highlight such things I have taken some portions from Std.11 lesson 1 of the TPM Sunday School Syllabus. This is about the sacrifices of the old testament and related spiritual significance in New Testament. I am not against the spiritual significance but I am against the selfishness of the TPM ministers who take the best share and impose their corrupted views on young impressionable minds. They are masters in repeating their corrupt doctrine to unlearned masses and manipulate them. This was successfully employed by Hitler, Lenin and many of the world leaders. Just think for yourselves, Who will in their right senses call themselves as Apostles and Saints to the exclusion of others. This is a very strong mind control mechanism.

Injecting Poison to impressionable minds in TPM

Here you can see, mentioned about the minor sacrifices. Please read all these very carefully and try to find out how the TPM doctrine is giving an insignificant share to the believers of Christ and taking the major share for themselves.

We can see that in the first four out five offerings “saints” are mentioned and in the fifth, it is mentioned “people of God”.  According to TPM saints are the celibate ministers and people of God means their New Jerusalem bound believers. Now if they try to say that my speculation is wrong then why should they use saints and people of God two different terms?  There is not an iota of doubt that they never hesitate to show themselves higher than everyone. Like Adonijah the son of Solomon, they are a self-proclaimed elite group. The sad part is that so many foolish members do support and follow them as Joan & Abiathar did with Adonijah. They are perhaps ignorant of the consequences awaiting them but I would that they should understand what happened to Joab & Abiathar.

Now let us consider few of their interpretation they have given for these minor sacrifices and any man with a little common sense will understand that how these TPM ministers are trying to throw Jesus out of the work for human salvation.

Wave Offering:


Saints offering for the salvation of mankind.


What a false claim? The sacrifices of Animals & birds in the old testament could not give the salvation therefore, Jesus Christ came and offered himself for the salvation of mankind. However, according to TPM Sunday School Syllabus, they want to prove that like the old testament sacrifices, the sacrifice of Jesus was not perfect enough. Therefore, they have to offer themselves for the salvation of mankind. They somehow want to put themselves at a pedestal which is very blasphemous. The Spirit that is guiding them is putting them on dangerous ground. No one from heaven or from earth needs to offer for the salvation of mankind because Jesus Christ has already offered himself as the only perfect sacrifice. It could be accepted had they said that they are preaching the good news to lead people to one who has offered Himself as a Wave-Offering. Oh, my God, I don’t know to what extent these TPM.minister would go to preach their own wrong teachings.

No one from heaven or from earth needs to offer for the salvation of mankind because Jesus Christ has already offered himself as the only perfect sacrifice. When confronted they will try to go round about to say that they are preaching the good news to lead people to one who has offered Himself as a Wave-Offering. TPM ministers can go to any extent to preach their own wrong teachings.

See the biblical reference they have taken. Acts 1:8, it’s like “easier said than done”. We can understand that they are clearly pointing to the word “witness” which in original term is “Martus” means martyrs.  Either they are ignorant of the definition of that word or deliberately they are making a fake claim. According to Thayer’s definition, it’s like this, “those who after his example have proved the strength and genuineness of their faith in Christ by undergoing a violent death“. We all know that how pragmatic the TPM ministers are with this definition. They are the timidest people who are afraid of persecution & they make all kinds of excuse to evade if any such situation arise. These TPM ministers are the ones claiming to do the ministry after the order of Melchisedec who has no father, mother or any descendants. Compare them with married preachers who are facing persecution and death without giving much thought about their wives & children? Doing nothing still claiming many things. How shameful it’s on the part of TPM ministers?

Heave Offering:


Saints surrendering themselves to the Lord.


The verse they have quoted to substantiate their concept is II Timothy 1:12. But I don’t think apostle Paul has said that exclusively for TPM’s self-proclaimed saints. God is the master of everyone and all those who follow Him are his servants. Therefore, every servant needs to surrender himself to the master. Not the TPM ministers alone but, everyone who wants to be kept safe and exalted in due time should surrender completely to the Lord.

Drink Offering:


Saints pouring out their life in the ministry.


If not the above two, in this third offering by the very statement it’s evident that it has exclusively been referred to the TPM ministers. I don’t understand, in what way they are pouring out their life in the ministry? Is it by ruling over their people and bringing them under the subjection of laws made by them? If you want to see these saints pouring out their life in the ministry, please go and check out their pre-convention, convention & post-convention behavior. These saints will be “in-charge” of certain departments having the believers under them. You will find that except the junior workers most of these saints will be neatly dressed (dazzling white & sharp crease) making the believers work like Labourers. Is this what you call pouring out the life in the ministry?

My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.” James 3:1

Instead of pouring out their life in the ministry, like masters, they are draining out the poor believers. Please stop fooling the people.

Thanksgiving Offering:


Saints living with a grateful heart for all the good things.


Bible doesn’t say to live with a grateful heart only for the good things like; good food, good clothes, good residence, good amount of tithe, etc. but for everything. St. Paul says in [1 Thessalonians 5:18] In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Moreover it’s not required only from TPM saints but from every child of God.

Freewill offering:

Now see the interesting thing in that section. In the above four offerings the saints alone are playing the role but, in the fifth offering the saints vanished & people of God are brought into the scene. Can you guess, why? Because in the first four offerings saints have nothing to pay in terms of money or any article but, in the fifth it’s about giving. And giving to poor & needy people is a far cry to them. They have learned only to receive but not to give. They think that to give freewill offering is meant only for their believers & they are exempted from that. But Jesus has taught that it is better to give than to receive (Acts 20:35). These TPM ministers consider themselves the only & true New Testament ministers. According to their convenience mix both Old and New Testaments. Alas! Their words and deeds have no harmony but, still claim to be the only best and capable church to prepare the people for the coming of the Lord. What a big deception? and I can just cry on behalf of the people trapped inside it like St. Paul, “O, wretched people! who shall deliver them from the church of hypocrisy?

Conclusion:

Dear TPM Believer,

The People whom you believe as Apostles and Saints are frauds of the highest category. They do not consider you any better than you will consider your cattle and poultry. You are just a revenue earning mechanism. Nothing More. Just as you feed your cattle and poultry, they also feed you with some cheap food to keep you under their control. They would not share a table with you. This is because you give them Milk, Meat, and Eggs. Once your utility is over, you will be thrown out for good. Check out their doctrines and see how they are Injecting Poison to impressionable minds in TPM.

Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of the false circumcision; Philippians 3:2

  1. This is one of the most blatant violations of scripture. I don’t understand what these saints thinking of themselves? They don’t fear God. Where these people are heading?
    May God help the believers to open their spiritual eyes?

  2. Also the “freewill” offering is more like a forced will offering. They get the offering in hand and keep a note on who has given how much. If the tithes are not paid regularly, then they ask very nicely why we’re not giving tithes and whether there is financial crisis in the family and still if they don’t get the tithe money, they go to a point of threatening using their twisted interpretation of Bible and telling examples like your children will become sick, the works of your hands will be cursed etc.,

    Brother if you give to the poor it becomes bribing them, converting them.
    Also receiving by coercion is not faith life, so it is not appropriate to ask for, but better to accept the freewill offering.

      Did the Church of Ephesus just Pray and not do any thing with the false apostles who came there? Please Read Rev 2:2

      //—Please tell an alternative.//
      Revelation 18:4

      //Brother if you give to the poor it becomes bribing them, converting them.//
      Please stop using your logic to horde your wealth. Does James think so? James 1:27

      Quoting Matthew 25:31-43

      31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

      34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

      37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

      40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

      41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

      44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

      45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

      46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

  4. //Please Read Rev 2:2//
    Please answer: Who is an apostle?

    //Quotations– Giving to the poor
    Giving ones life like Jesus is the best one can give.

    Matt 16:25
    For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

    When people learn to rely on God for everything, they do get everything from Him.
    Without any strings attached we will find God’s marvelous ways.

    And in giving alms(to the non-believers):

    Matt 6:3
    But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

    1. Please click here to read who is an Apostle.

      //When people learn to rely on God for everything, they do get everything from Him.
      Without any strings attached we will find God’s marvelous ways.//

      Jesus Never Promised to give you everything (Matthew 6:31-33, 1 Timothy 6:8). He just promised you Food and Clothing. Whereas we see in TPM, the Clergy is not even working for their Sustenance as did Apostle Paul (2 Thess 3:8-13), but Building Mansions and Eating Luxurious Food. I am yet to see a TPM Preacher proclaiming the Plain unadulterated Gospel without selfish motive of leading people to his Organization.

      //And in giving alms(to the non-believers)://
      Where to you get this twist? You give alms to someone who is Poor. It does not take into consideration about the belief of the person. PERIOD.

      //Matt 6:3
      But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth://

      What is the relevance of this verse to the topic? Can you not see what the RIGHT HAND OF TPM does after seeing all those convention Grounds and Latest Mansions? Is that not enough for you?

  5. Gen 14:21
    The last portion states:
    “lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich”

    Here Abraham very clearly says he wanted all things through God, or to make it to be more clear he wanted nothing that is not from God. This was because he did not want anyone to brag that it is because of XYZ that Abraham is rich.

    Do not we understand from here, that God does make a man rich?
    We also have verses of promise for they that seek the Lord.
    Psalms 34:10
    The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.

    1. Brother Anonymous,
      I wasnt able to comprehend your “//when people rely on God for everything…//” quote. Why did you quote that. What is it that you are trying to prove with it? Are you trying to say that tpm ministers rely in faith on God and get everything from God? If that be so, then

      1) After having forsaken everything, why to return to shit of the world in juxtaposition to the eternal life and eternal blessings for which they have forsaken all? Why do saints seek for best quality earthly things, when many poor believers are taught to look for things that are above? None of the apostles enjoyed everything of the world. Peter and John said “silver and gold I have none.” This seems to be in stark contrast to money possessed by modern evangelists gathered from offerings and tithes offered by flock (Applicable to tpm too). Rather they (apostles) taught people to be content with basic food and clothing. They taught godliness with contentment is great gain. They taught with much tribulation we must enter the kingdom of God. They didn’t train flock’s mind to long for things of the world and get them by magical faith. They trained their minds to look for things above.

      I know sensual leaders can quote few verses from scriptures to support the quench of their lust for world and it’s dainties. But here is my point. To ask people to rely on God for everything by so called faith life is corrosion of idea presented in New Testament to have faith into eternal life irrespective of your unworthiness (solely on merit of Christ alone). It (modern concept of faith life) digresses people’s mindset from eternal to corruptible things of world. This is what your saints have done to believers mindset. This was the core difference between mindset of church in wilderness and church in first century (selah). Former perished in wilderness while the latter evolved victorious in tribulations which arose in first century. I hope you understand my point. I’ll end with quotes from ministers whom I find hundred degree better than tpm ones.

      “If Christ had preached the same message that ministers preached today, he would not have been crucified.” – leornard ravenhill.

      “When God raises you financially, don’t raise your standard of living. Raise your standard of giving.” – mark batterson.

      “When your pastor is wealthier than people he serves then you should wonder, is he here to help us or are we here to help him.”

  6. Brother Nath, please do not take me to be a TPM spokesperson.

    What I meant was if one sincerely seeks God, with all their heart and all their mind, the very same God who blessed Solomon with other material things that he did not ask for(or seek after), is able to according to His will grant us all our needs.

    II Chronicles 1:11,12

    11 And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king:

    12 Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.

    And again we do see people who were outright poor, who were blessed abundantly by God and were examples to many others as to how God fulfills all the needs(both spiritual and material) of His people.

    Hebrews 11:6

    “and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

    This is not to be taken as a recipe for prosperity(for then we are setting our eyes on the things below).
    For He is able to fulfill all our needs, not our greeds. It is certainly an issue when our motive is fulfilling our greed.

    1. Bro Anonymous,
      My “what” question was in conjunction to my “why” question. I am still unable to comprehend relevance of your “rely on God” argument with respect to exposing freewill offering teaching of TPM. Let me restate what I am asking you.

      Article exposes TPM’s cunning mindset about using to their gain from Old Testament freewill offering. What it says is that TPM ministers have made their teachings on freewill offering to get (receive) all stuffs like milk meat fish egg money from believers. They ask believers to offer tithes and material offerings to TPM ministers by FREEWILL OFFERING teaching but never themselves offer anything out of their freewill to poor and needy people.

      Now you came at this point and start defending TPM’s action and teaching. This is what you said “//giving to poor is bribing them to get converted… ……when people rely on God for EVERYTHING he gives EVERYTHING//”.

      Here is my question! What must I understand from what article says and what you said? What is the cohesion between the two?

      I see this possibility (if anything else correct me). You are essentially saying that it is right for TPM minister to receive freewill offering from believers but when it comes for them to give freewill offering to poor and needy then you defend their action by saying “giving to poor is bribing”! Ah! so believers must give freewill offering to saints (because saints rely on God for everything) and saints have an excuse to not to give to poor and needy! And you expect me to not to suppose you as Tpm spokesperson after trying to defend TPM’s deceitful actions and teachings!

      If this is not what you mean then do let me understand what made you say one must rely on God for everything and giving to poor is bribing them! What is cohesion between two or what is line of your argument that connects exposing freewill offering teachings of TPM by article with your statements quoted above?
