Going through lots of comments on this site is quite interesting if you are investigating the psychology of cult members. As of today, this site has 100+ articles and 2400+ comments in English. So it is a minefield to know the thinking process behind a typical TPM believer. Apart from the comments, the admin receives numerous private emails from TPM Believers stuck in this rotten system wanting to get out. We also get emails from many people complaining about abuses done on them by the clergy who are living in the exploits with the explicit understanding of the Seniors.
We have highlighted few wicked things happening in TPM and the cover-up done by the Senior Clergy. Out of all these communications at our disposal, one communication stands out by TPM Die Hards. This is their often used slogan of ” TPM is the Best Church” or “There is no Better Church than TPM” or something very similar on those lines.
Before we proceed, check out the below comment from one of the TPM Diehards who wanted to prove a point in favor of TPM being the Best Church. There are quite a lot of similar comments. This one was selected just because it was one of the latest ones.
What Causes this “Best Church Syndrome”?
This type of brainwashing works ONLY with people who are not Spiritual. Such kind of competitive mentality is a key thing which can be observed in people who are given to the lusts of the Flesh. Needless to say, we all know the works of the flesh displayed in the Parents of Sunday School pupils and also TPM Ministers during the anniversary time. If you are in TPM, you would have heard of many sermons with a condescending tone towards other Ministries. The TPM Doctrines are designed to keep their ministers and believers thinking of themselves higher than the rest of Christendom. They do not realize that such an attitude is a characteristic of the end times (2 Timothy 3:4)
Let us see what the Apostle says about such a spirit in Galatians 5:19-21.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, EMULATIONS, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Please note the word EMULATIONS in Verse 20. I have underlined and capitalized it for easier visibility. Though TPM excels in each one of the lists above, we will focus on Emulations in this article. Please look at the highlighted definition of the word Emulations on the picture. “Effort to match or surpass a person or achievement, typically by imitation.”
It is quite common in TPM Circles and their Ministers to boast of things like the follows.
- I fast for 4 times a week because the Bible says our righteousness should surpass the righteousness of Pharisees.
- I pay 20% of my income because the Bible says our righteousness should surpass the righteousness of Pharisees.
- I read 10 chapters of the Bible, a day
- I attend all meetings without fail
- If the Old Testament saints could do so, How much more should we do?
- I pray 3 hours a day because the Tithe of the Time belongs to the Lord.
- I get up at 4:00 AM for praising just as the Saints.
- The More and louder somebody speaks in unknown tongues, it is assumed that they are more spiritual.
- The More somebody washes the vessels and cooks food in TPM Convention, the more they are blessed.
Seldom do they realize that they are in the grip of the Works of the Flesh and assumes that they are pleasing God by all these efforts. The more they get fanatical about TPM, the more they do the works of the flesh and squabble for first place with their effort.
We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. 2 Corinthians 10:12
Paul never dared to compare him to others in the Emulation business. But we have these white clad false apostles who are always in the business of comparing themselves with others and claiming to be the Best Ones. They boast on the following factors to prove their BETTER STATUS.
- They claim to have left all their possessions and working for the Lord Full time and look down on others who do secular work along with the ministry.
- They claim to be eunuchs and have sacrificed their sexual appetite for the work of the Lord compared to other ministers who are married.
- They claim to pray for their believers 2/3 times a day compared to other ministers whom they assume to be not doing so.
- They claim to be wearing always white dress to show that they are special people compared to others who wear colored dresses.
- and much more.
Their so-called Consecration is just a manifestation of the Works of the Flesh. They have been successful in fooling unspiritual ignorant people whom they lead. TPM Ministers tries to cover up their poor scriptural base and twisted interpretations with this new trick – Consecration. Check out the comments column of this website and you can know that the TPM fanatics/faithfuls do not have any scriptural understanding of their way of life. They are totally dependent on their “Saints” to push them through to eternity.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6
Dear TPM Believer,
Please understand that you have been duped by these men who show a form of Godliness and are living off your hard earned money. They love to trap you inside the Competitive Spirit and make you dance to their tunes. We know that you do not realize that you are caught in the WORKS OF THE FLESH. Such Emulations are not a simple thing which you should ignore. Check back with Galatians 5:19-21 and see the other companions to this spirit which trapped you in EMULATIONS. Do not fall for their consecration game. God is waiting for you but his Spirit will not always strive with Men. Repent and Come back to Jesus.
