Cults all over the world have perfected the art of Mind Control by misinterpreting and adding to the existing scriptures in such a way that they convey different meanings based on the audience. A perfectly normal scripture can be twisted in TPM, by repeated application in such a way that a TPM guy will always understand it through a TPM Lens.
An Example of Secret Cultist Interpretation of Scripture (Double Meanings)
They often use plain scripture to mean something else, which cannot be easily detected by a newcomer. On the surface it looks simple. But its quite sinister in its intent. Let me cite one simple example for all of TPMites to recognize easily. You know when the TPM Worship service and Praising starts, the Clergy mentions one important point? That point is a prayer request to “bless the Fellowship of the Saints all over the world.”
Q. Do you know what a normal Christian would understand by it?
A. He would understand it as a prayer to bless the worship service of all True Christians irrespective of any denominational affiliation. This is because he understands that we all are the same before God, and the denominations in this world has no validity before God.
Q. Do you know what the TPM Clergy means by that same sentence? Do you know what a typical TPM believer understands by it?
A. The TPM Clergy intends to ask God to Bless the Worship service of all Churches within TPM ONLY. This is because they have doctrinally understood the TPM Clergy only as SAINTS. Repeatedly classifying themselves as Saints, drills into the average TPMer, the understanding that SAINTS = TPM Clergy. Now with this preexisting understanding that the TPM Clergy = SAINTS, the statement to “bless the Fellowship of the Saints all over the world“, would mean to Bless the Fellowship of TPM Denomination run by the Saints (TPM Clergy Only). If you hear carefully, in some of the TPM Fellowship, the clergy mentions it as “Our Saints” making it more clear, whom he intends.
Ideally, how should we interpret the sentence “bless the Fellowship of the Saints all over the world.” as a Christian?
Let us go to to some scriptures which make it clear even without any explanation
1 John 1:3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
1 John 1:5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
1 John 1:6-7 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
The above verses make it so clear that true fellowship of the Saints is, having fellowship with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. Anybody having a fellowship with the Father and the Son, is in fact having a fellowship with the Rest of the Body of Christ i.e Saints. As mentioned in the Previous article of this series, we all are Saints because we are Bought by his blood and is made Holy by his redemptive act. Please read the below verses and know that All of Us are Saints.
2 Corinthians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To the church of God which is at Corinth with all the saints who are throughout Achaia:
Ephesians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, To the saints who are at Ephesus and who are faithful in Christ Jesus:
Philippians 1:1 Paul and Timothy, bond-servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons:
1 Corinthians 14:33 for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.
Jude 1:3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.
Typical TPM Clergy Sermon to Control Your Mind
With the above understanding of twisting scriptures with Double meanings, let us have an explanation of a Typical TPM Clergy Sermon. The Below Sermon was send to us by a TPM Believer of Paschim Vihar Faith Home. This sermon is almost 1 year old.
The said TPM Clergy Ebyson, has no qualms in calling up lonely believer sisters and other Worker sisters at night for his sensual gratification. Now this same Ebyson, is brainwashing TPM believers and teaching them “How to be a Good Believer”. For a mind control process to be successful, it needs to have a willing participant. Therefore, the motivation is How to be a “GOOD” BELIEVER.
Let us look at each of these points and their actual intended meanings as per TPM’s Double Meaning Dictionary.
1. Don’t Miss the Holy Communion
Anybody will think that this is a very nice advise. But do you know that he intends to control you by this? In TPM’s terminology, Holy Communion with Other non-TPM Christians is a strict NO-NO. You will be strictly reprimanded or Punished for having Fellowship or Holy Communion with others. They think that they are the ONLY AUTHORIZED people who can conduct Holy Communions because they are “Apostles” and “Saints”, They think that other Christians are Not Worthy to be good enough to partake in the Lord’s table. TPM Will not give Holy Communion even to Christians from other Pentecostal denominations. If you are honest concerning your Faith in Jesus, these are things which should ring alarm bells for you.
Need I say more about the twist in TPM’s Fellowship? We have explained it in the first section of this article by what it means to TPM’s Clergy when he says about Fellowship. These are marks of a cult, exposed for any body who wants to know.
3. Faith Life
Another nice terminology to trap gullible souls. Do you know what the preacher meant by Faith Life? He meant that if you get sick, you are not expected to take medicines and consult a physician to get well. This Cult assumes that you can manipulate God to get healed in your Body. God does heal us from our infirmities, but manipulating God like a spoiled brat to heal you , is a dangerous doctrine. Dying because God did not heal according to your egoistic method, is your problem. I call that as SUICIDE. Do not fall for this deceptive doctrine. All believers in Paschim Vihar knows how the wife of Brother Mathews was killed by this deceptive Divine Healing Doctrine. Click here to answer these 20 Questions about TPM’s Divine healing Doctrine

One More important thing needs to be mentioned here. If you happen to go to the Doctor for treatment, you will be excommunicated and forbidden from partaking in the Lord’s table, if you are in most parts of South India. This rule is ignored and hidden in North India and other International locations, because that would mean people would desert their assembly. That is a doctrine of convenience for TPM
Wow..What a nice word misapplied within TPM. In TPM Terminology, it means to separate yourself from other Christians because they do not follow the “Apostolic Doctrine” as taught by TPM. None of these TPM diehards look into the scripture to see what it says.
And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. Acts 2:40
The above verse means that we should not walk in the ways of this world in our lives. But you know why TPM wants that their believers separate themselves from other true Christians? Its because they fear that mingling with them will expose their cultic ways and people will escape their control.
The TPM Ministers are guilty of breaching the integrity of the Body of Christ
17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. Romans 16:17-18
5. Support the Workers in Every Way
Needless to say that they need the crutch of these hapless believers to get ahead in their rat race. In reality it means “Unlimited Right to abuse believers“. These “TPM Ministers” will demand their believers do unethical things to have their wants fulfilled. Click here to see one excellent example where one of their believers used unethical means to give them LPG Cylinders, at subsidized rates, by Falsely witnessing. TPM Clergy treats their believers as Man Servants and Maid Servants at their disposal. I personally have witnessed arrogant talks at these poor folks, who are voluntarily doing things for them. They Manipulate people by saying that any services done for their Faith Home is a work done for God. Alas!!! Poor gullible believers take it as it is. Its time to stop this misery. How I wish that the TPM Believers read this article.
6. Read the Bible every Morning and Evening
This is another great sentence which is used for the purpose of deception by TPM Clergy. On the surface Bible reading looks great and we also exhort you to read it as the Lord leads you. But be cautious to keep the teachings of TPM away, while reading the Bible. Read the Scriptures with a neutral mindset. Unfortunately, TPM folks rarely read the scriptures.If they read it somehow, it is with a TPM Lens attached to their eyes of understanding. If you ask privately, your local TPM Clergy to explain certain things, they will avoid you and run away. This is because they know they are on a weak wicket. That is also a reason why many TPM people are not able to biblically refute our reasoning presented in this site. They are just following their wolves in sheep’s clothing. All that they can do is vain bablings and some abusing words. This is because they have left the Lord and has followed the Wolves. Had they kept the law of the Lord, they would not have twisted the scriptures and followed after these hirelings.
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:11
7. Attend Conventions, Youth Meetings and 12 Hour Prayer Meetings
There is not much deception in this point. Any thinking person can know that these meetings are instituted to indoctrinate and brainwash their Believers. The Youth Meetings are specially arranged to mould their young folks in the cultic doctrines. We are glad that the modern generation are not so dumb to swallow their story. If you are a parent, you can send your kids to the youth meeting to lose them to the cult. One important thing that you need to know is that, these youth meetings are also used to grab youngsters to their ministerial services as they are lacking foot soldiers.
8. Share the Gospel
This is one of the weirdest mind control technique I understood. In TPM, Sharing the Gospel is not exactly what other Christians assume to be. By normal thinking process, we assume it is about introducing Jesus Christ to the sinner. But in TPM its not so. Have you noted that they do not have any real evangelical outreach. Their Gospel is to introduce their Apostolic Ministry run by their Celibates, which they claim to be something great than the normal Christian. Note the point. They are introducing themselves as special people and has got nothing to do with Jesus Christ. That is why, their gospel is all about themselves. They do not realize that the Bible Calls them as WOLVES as they draw away disciples after themselves.
29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. 31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. Acts 20:29-31
They fulfill the above prophecy to the Dot.
9. Don’t go over to TV, Media, Social Networking etc
Media, especially Social Media is a nightmare for TPM and its Clergy. We all know that Social media makes it possible for information to Fly at lightning speed. All the scams of TPM have been made public spectacle, because of certain Social Media tools. Even earlier, there were lots of scams. However, those scams were buried and controlled in a localized manner. But things have changed, and they are not able to counter information flow. This site has been at the forefront of TPM’s painful experience. Strictly speaking, we are not a social media. However, TPM Clergy is not in a position to identify and ban us publicly before their believers. This is because, that would give us a publicity and thereby open up all their secrets and deceptive practices to their laity. We know of TPM Clergy who prays regularly to destroy the evil powers working against TPM. In reality they are praying for the closure of http://www.fromtpm.com. They are stuck between the rock and a hard place when it comes to this site.
10. Give the Tithes
This unchristian practice is the fuel of the whole cult. Cut off the fuel supply and the Cult of TPM will collapse like a 2 dollar suitcase. These shameless people would not work for their sustenance like the Apostle Paul. Just as the Pharisees of old, they They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. Matt 23:4
Drain the Swamp of this evil, unchristian practice by people who want to eat and not work. For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10
This Cult(TPM) is one of the best inventions of the Devil to mislead and take innocents to the gates of Hell. People do not understand that they are in a great delusion. They have believed the lies of TPM Clergy. TPM will continue in the same way as her Mother – Mystery Babylon. Do not partake in the Harlotry of this evil organization. Why should you perish with the wicked people?
As surely as I live, says the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of wicked people. I only want them to turn from their wicked ways so they can live. Turn! Turn from your wickedness, O people of Israel! Why should you die? Ezekiel 33:11
