I have heard of TPM Ministers quoting the following verse from the bible for this ceremony which they call dedication.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matt 19:14
Read the below testimony to know how TPM/CPM/GNCC/NTC treats small kids and forces to mold them into their own Legalistic ways. Absolutely love-less people who do not know the heart of a child. After reading the testimony, I can see a little heart crushed by arrogant ministers of satan camouflaging as ministers of Light. It is for all of us to see the kind of fruit they produce.
43 “For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its own fruit….. Luke 6:43-44
I was actually brought up in CPM since I was around 3 years old. My mother’s family had converted from Catholicism so they became very strong CPM followers immediately. However, when we moved to Canada when I was 4 to join my dad, he did not let us attend the CPM church here. Life was good, my mom would still teach us things from the Bible which was totally fine. However, when the CPM church here (called Grace New Covenant church) got into contact with my mom they began to cause a problem for my parents because they would often try to influence my mom to go to church. This often resulted in my parents getting into an argument. But when my brother and I were a little older my mom took us to church regularly and this is when life started to get bad. Up until then, I had no idea of how insane this church really was because I hardly attended, except for an Easter meeting or a revival meeting each year.
When I was 14 and my brother was 9 we began to attend the church in Montreal regularly. At that point, it was Brother James and sister Dilky who were here. I am pretty short, so when I was 15 I began to wear high heels. Some people in the church who were close to the ministers began to complain about my shoes and I was treated by the ministry like I was a prostitute! They would be like don’t come to church like this, but I was wearing very conservative clothes because my mom was very strict. They would complain to my mom regularly about the shoes and this resulted in us having constant fights at home for no reason. I was actually a good kid who studied well, didn’t even go out, and I was very much into reading the Bible. In the whole church, I was the one who was always ahead of Bible reading! There was this older lady at the church, my Sunday school teacher at the time who was probably very jealous that I knew more about the bible than her. So she and her daughter would complain random things about me. She even made tried to make me not get 100% on my tests by giving me questions about Bible verses “which reading was today’s and write about it” when she clearly knew I was reading months ahead in the chart. But when all this was presented to the ministers they didn’t tell her to stop so I left Sunday school, while she continued teaching.
Sister Dilky also told me to not read the Bible too much and said: “it was daily bread” and that I should only read that day’s portion of the bible reading chart. Since they wanted my brother to keep coming they told me that I can go to adult Sunday school if I wanted, so I did. They really couldn’t stand that I was a 16-year-old who was not a sheep, I did what I thought was right.
Later on, a lady from the church complained about me not eating a lot at the youth camp and lied about other stuff about me. Sister Dilky then crossed examined me without my mother being present. At that time I was only a 16 year old! I was traumatized as I was being accused of calling this lady at church “a bitch” when I never had even called her that. She accused me of wearing indecent clothes, which was not true as it was a girls youth camp, and I simply wore skirts and tops! I was not able to present my facts but sister Dilky just started to accuse me and yell at me instead of looking at the facts. They used this to traumatize me and caused a lot of problems for me at home! My mother felt this was so shameful and began to always talk about this at home because the ministry wanted to shift the blame on me in order to make the lady at church look good as she was an adult. The lady who lied was never punished, instead, she became head of Sunday school! This church has a weird idea that adults are always right and children are to be blamed. This was when I realized something is wrong with the church because they had no sense of justice. They just let an adult get away with something evil but they made it look like I was bad and told me to stop ministering to make it look like the adults did not do anything wrong but to make it look like I was at fault. Till this day the minister has never even apologized and denies ever doing this. I had wanted to take baptism, but they didn’t let me because they said I wasn’t ready because Sister Annie from Toronto came and said that my shoes were too high! But later on, I ended up taking baptism when I was 17.
As years went by and other ministers came and went, there was a sister called Sister Debbie. She was here and wow she really tried to split up my family. She would say one thing to me pretending to me that my mom was wrong, then she would actually turn my mom against me, I have heard It with my own ears. She would tell me “oh why does your mom say not to wear this skirt? It’s a very good skirt to wear to church” then she will go and tell her to not let me wear it to church. This resulted in us fighting at home constantly over very stupid matters. After this incident, I stopped talking to the minister and started to avoid her a lot because I felt like she had her motives. She would do her best to try to communicate and tried mind games but didn’t work for me because I was also studying psychology so I knew those tactics too. It was very evil, and all about control. They want money from people. Also, sis Debbie was mad at me because I used to donate to church but I saw she didn’t spend money wisely so I would write on my cheque to give it to the mission field.
I saw that they were always showing injustice, they had favorite people who got away with anything and those who they couldn’t control (like me) they did their best to try to label and all. But eventually I started to get better and it wasn’t easy at first. I was away from home for school. And that’s when my healing began. I used to be very sad while going to church I felt like something was wrong with me because they would make it look like that and my mom would fight with me all the time! Even when I wore normal clothes my mom will treat me like I was wearing something scandalous. But once I was away and didn’t go to church and I had time alone to reflect I began to understand what I really wanted. I began to realize how it was all weird, and all this manipulation and deception really became clear to me. They would tell me “don’t question the anointed”. It’s dum but these things get to your head because you grow listening to the same bullshit. But once reflected on it all I began to slowly leave. Once I stopped going to church my mom was not happy and it was hard to be home because my mom would try to get me to go back. But I literally had to reprogram my brain myself to change my perspectives in life that were instilled by this cult. My brother had already left when he was 16 because they told him not to come to church with a small beard and sideburns!! But when we asked them they said they never said that despite the fact I was right there when they said that. So I left the church when I was around 26. I am 34 now and it was the best decision I had ever made in my life!!! It was not easy! But I can say I made it! If it’s possible for me, anyone can do it! They used to preach that people who have left them would end up in bad situations, and claim that those people have even died. This is quite the opposite of what Jesus said in Luke 6:28 . But the day I realized that the misery I was experiencing in that cult was way worse than death itself, I left!
Children do remember injustice done for a long period of time. So deal with them in a fair manner and do not offend them.
“If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Matt 18:6
