I realize that questioning the TPM Clergy system is disturbing to many who know no other way to conduct the worship and ministry of the local church. There also may be thoughts of “there are so many well-read Godly men and women who believe and practice clericalism, how can I dare begin to question their position?”
To address both of these concerns, let me ask the reader these questions:
(1) Are we safer following the teachings and traditions of men and their denominational organizations or following God’s Word?
(2) Can the believer understand the Scriptures through the operation of the Spirit alone or is he dependent upon those clergies to guide him? If you are comfortable depending on others to tell you what is of God, then this article is not for you. You may as well discard it now. If, however, you believe in your heart of hearts that God’s Word alone is able to thoroughly furnish the man of God (2 Timothy 3:17), and it is through the Spirit alone that we can understand His truth (John 16:13), read on. As you do, be alert to your responsibility to refuse any thoughts herein presented or thoughts of your own which are not supported by Holy Scripture.


The Lord Jesus Christ is the only scripturally recognized head of the Church: “(God) has put all things under His (Christ’s) feet and gave Him to be head over all things to the church” (Ephesians 1:22). “(Christ) is the head of the body, the church….” (Colossians 1:18).
For individuals to presume authority over the Church is to dishonor the Head.  Diotrophes made this terrible mistake. He loved to have the preeminence among the Church and acted on its behalf by not receiving the apostles (3 John 9,10). This is being done in TPM as well. TPM Clergy seeks and teaches about their preeminence. The TPM Diotrephes does not recognize the headship of Christ over each believer. They want to assume the position of Christ in the Believer’s life. This is called usurping. Jesus Christ is Preeminent for the Church (Col 1:18). You cannot have 2 people having the preeminence. Choose One. Either it can be Jesus or your TPM Clergy.
TPM Clergy from Man or God
1 Corinthians 11:3

Many Christians readily acknowledge the headship of Christ in principle but fail to see the practical out-working of Christ as Head. First, we accept by faith that He is present among those gathered to His Name: “For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them (Matthew 18:20). Second, He directs and leads the Church by His Spirit: “In (Christ) you also are built together for a habitation of God through the Spirit” (Ephesians 2:21, 22). “As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, Separate Me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them” (Acts 13:2).

It was not the clergy making the decisions as directed by the Spirit. It was the Spirit of God making known to the gathered believers what the mind of Christ was.
Christ has given the Church authority to act on His behalf: “Whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 18:18). “In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of the Lord Jesus Christ, to deliver such a one unto Satan” (1 Corinthians 5:4,5).
This authority was not given to the clergy or to any other subset of the Church. All believers gathered in a single locality form the Church at that place. Only the local Church as a whole has authority to act in His Name. Do not let the lazy devious Clergy detach you from the headship of Jesus Christ. The Bible does not recognize the Clergy of any human organizations. Let not the TPM Wolves take you for a ride.


Priesthood of all believers 1 TPM Clergy from Man or God?The Jewish system of appointing certain ones to perform priestly duties has been done away with. The work of Christ on the cross has rent the veil providing every believer free access to the Father (Mathew 27:51; Hebrews 10:20). In Christ, all believers are priests and have the responsibility to function as priests. “You also as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ…you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:5,9).
Christian worship is not by schedule or outward forms, but is simply the overflow of the heart to God: “God is Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and truth” (John 4:24), “But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped Him” (Mark 5:6). Corporate fellowships are to be conducted “decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:40) as empowered by the Spirit: “We are the true circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:3).
The concept of having an office in the church whose function it is to dictate corporate worship denies the priesthood of believers and undermines the leading of the Holy Spirit. It requires the one appointed to be filled with Spirit praise at the appointed hour when in fact he may be empty. It reestablishes the Judaistic system whereby only select individuals can perform certain services. In effect, it puts the veil back up between the soul and God.


Each member of the body of Christ has been given a special gift and is responsible to use it for the good of the body: “Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace that is given to us, let us exercise them accordingly” (Romans 12:6). “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal” (1 Corinthians 12:7). “As every man has received the gift, even so, minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God” (1 Peter 4:10). “But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ…For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:7,12).
The Spirit directs the use of the gifts: “all these works that one and self-same Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:7). “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty” (2 Corinthians 3:17).
God’s order in the Church allows for the liberty of the Spirit in ministry: “Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the others, judge. If anything be revealed to another that sits by, let the first hold his peace. For you may all prophecy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted” (1 Corinthians 14:29-31). “If any man speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God gives: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ“(1 Peter 4:11).
The concept of having an office in the church whose function it is to monopolize public ministry at the exclusion of other gifted brethren denies the gifts Christ gave and undermines the operation of the Holy Spirit.
It requires the one appointed to have all the gifts. It requires him to have a message at the appointed hour regardless of whether the Spirit has laid a message on his heart.


“Pastor” appears once in the New Testament of most English translations. It refers to one of the gifts given by Christ to the Church (Ephesians 4:7-13). It was never used as a title. It was never connected with a church office that controlled the ministry and worship of the local church. The word itself means “shepherd.” How much we need shepherds today among God’s people! We hear so often the question, “Who is your pastor?” If the question were, “Who is your shepherd?”, I am sure that many Christians would refuse to put a man in that place and respond, “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1)

Sin Against the Holy Spirit

Suppose the Spirit of God has filled a brother’s heart with praise prompting him to lead the saints in public worship. Similarly, suppose the Spirit burdens a brother with a message for the gathered believers. He is a priest but cannot function. He has a message and a gift but cannot exercise it. Why? Simply because he is not ordained. He does not have credentials from man.
The Spirit is quenched (1 Thessalonians 5:19). The blessing is lost. The Name of Christ is not exalted. The justification is “we can’t let just anyone lead in worship and the ministry of the Word. There would be confusion. We would be opening the door to erroneous and unprofitable ministry.”
As to confusion, God does not author it (1 Corinthians 14:33). If confusion results, then brethren are acting in the flesh and not being led of the Spirit at all.
Confusion may be removed when a man(Pastor/Clergy) dictates all worship and ministry, but this is a mute point since God would then not be the author.
As to error and unprofitable ministry, have you considered what is preventing the appointed minister from speaking error or giving unprofitable ministry”? That minister’s human credentials, nothing else.
  • The Lord Jesus would be denied the Lord’s table in TPM because that is reserved only for the members of TPM who are certified by the Clergy.
  • The apostle Paul would not be allowed to speak in TPM because he came “not of men, neither by man” (Galatians 1:1).
Satan, however, disguised perhaps as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14), could come ordained of men and have full freedom to minister to the church and conduct its corporate worship.


But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate…So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate” (Revelation 2:6,15). Who are the Nicolaitans? It is not God’s way to send us to church histories to understand His Word. Since the term appears nowhere else in the Scriptures, the word itself is the only means whereby we can interpret its meaning.
Nicolaitans 1 TPM Clergy from Man or God?“Nicolaitan” means “conquering the people.” The last part of the word (“Laos”) is the word from which our English word “laity” is derived. The Nicolaitans were those in the church that subjected the common people, the laity, to a lower position. Who are those in the church today that claims a higher position, with certain privileges and authority above the laity? None other than the clergy.
We saw earlier the hateful deeds of Diotrephes in usurping Christ’s authority in the church. The deeds, however, later developed into a doctrine – as most unchecked evil practices will. What began as the pride of men seeking the first place among God’s people has developed into the teaching that such is as God would have it.
The reaction of the masses today are not unlike the masses in Israel: “The prophets prophecy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means, and My people love to have it so” (Jeremiah 5:31). As spiritual decline sets in, the heart readily gives up its need of caring too much for spiritual things to those who will accept the responsibility.As with Israel so with the church, unbelief will always seek to have some visual, tangible object between the soul and God.
The Lord seeing this trend looks at it and says “which thing I hate.”
It is not the people in the position that are hated. It is the deeds and the doctrine. We thank the Lord that there are many among the clergy who faithfully preach the gospel and the Word of God, but from the Scriptures, we must conclude that they are doing so in the wrong position.


Dear Reader,

Do you want to follow the Lord or do you want to follow the Clergy who has no validity with God? Decide for yourself. We have told you what the scriptures have said. The ball is in your court.

Excerpts from Wicked Shepherds


  1. It is unsafe to follow the unscriptural teachings and unscriptural traditions of men.

    Believers can learn scriptures through many different ways (Spirit of God guides and leads them in ways which we may not be able to predict). Apollos was expounded the truth by a married couple. An Ethiopion eunuch learnt and understood the meanings of scripture that he was reading when Philip explained it better to him. Some of the dreams of the rulers were explained to them by God fearing men like Daniel and Joseph.

    • A lot of these were instances when people were unbelievers and obviously some believer has to explain them the truth. Moreover, you just can’t compare TPM clergy with Aquila & Priscilla!
      At one instance, there were some new believers in a TPM branch. They have been attending for 5-6 years. And all of them were the ones who get “filled in great anointing” even at the slightest provocation. Their life was completely different as worse it can get. So, I went and asked them one by one.. how did you get saved, are you born-again etc., Honestly, not even one had a clue… they all said “we’ve received anointing”. This is the state your TPM clergy puts the people in. As long as you blabber in tongues and jump and shout as loud as you can get, you’re in the forefront of soldiers marching to New Jerusalem. What these TPM clergy buffoons will teach from the Scriptures after all….

    • Well Anonymous I wish you would read to understand and read to learn than to argue.First of all let me tell you Apollos knew about Jesus and John’s baptism but not of the Holy Spirit and Aquila and Priscilla taught him about the same Acts 18:24-26.Hence he baptised Johns baptism.Priscilla and Aquila interpreted the scriptures and the gospels as it is.Apollos left Ephesus for Achaia Acts 18:27 after which St Paul came to Ephesus and had a conversation with Ephesians. Acts 19:2-6.
      Second Ethiopian eunuch taught by Philip and baptized him by water.He did it following Jesus commandment which is recorded John 3:5.The eunuch was reading Isaiah.Philip didnt say hypocrisy but explained the scriptures in its context.Third Daniel was a man who was put among lions,his dreams came true.Everyone saw the hand of God through Daniel. Same thing with Joseph the interpretation of dream was right and was fulfilled and He saved a lot of people from famine.
      All the above examples show one thing the will of our Lord was fulfilled.God used Aquila and Priscilla for his plan.God used Philip for his plan.All these people used by God were well versed in scriptures and preached the truth.Not hypocrisy like most tpm clergy.They say something and then do something.Daniel and Joseph to dream and prophesy great things which went down in History books,great miracles.Pastor Anonymous tell me one thing how many such great things are done by tpm clergy?How many prophesies have come true.Most sermons of Apocalyspse which these clergy have been proven time and again to be false.Not twisting the Word of God like you are twisting to gain benefits.You seem to be a tpm clergy or else you are being used by some clergy or else you wpuldnt be so good at twisting the word here and trying to make your point.Most prophesies are random prophesies which start like My children My children…….then I dont know what they say….they repeat biblical verses and scare people.Very vague guesswork done in the pretext of prophesy….then what nothing happens.For eg. They will say someone is going through trials….Of course most of the human beings have problems in life.Its a no brainer.Moreover if you go to talk to tpm clergy and follow their advise…most cases you will get into trouble.Then they will say oh Its God’s will you might have problems.But if the suggestion works out then they try to take all credit. Stop comparing tpm clergy to these Great people like Apollos,Aquila and Priscila,Joseph amd Daniel.The tpm clergy are nothing but people who manipulate believers into thinking that clergy are perfect and God talks to them everyday.And that the clergy lead holy life.Let me give you a reality check.Just wearing white wont make you holy.Look at the politicians who wear white.Just giving lengthy speech and not practising is also similar to politicians.Then asking for tithes again like politicians.Just like politicians say they will talk to superior politicians these clergy say they will talk to God.Tpm clergy keeps buying property like politicians.Like politicians wear white in the country and suits abroad.Tpm guys change their clothes too.Like politicians you talk about charity and giving more money to the organisation by saying that they will give to the poor and needy you take it and eat nice four course meals.Theres no transparency of money dealings.Again like politicians.Moreover most people know about the political connections of the tpm group.Why dont you guys start tpm political party?That would be awesome.

    • Do you think that in any of the above-quoted instances, the person imparting the understanding made themselves better than the one to whom it is imparted? Did they consider themselves a class above the rest?

      • Brothers we have all been misled.Lets open our eyes ears and mouth.Lets take on the frauds and the wolves. The sad fact is we can wake up people who are sleeping but not them who are pretending to sleep.The believers love hero worshipping.For them the clergy is the form of God.Even if they dont burn incense and bring flowers.They offer money and praises to these heroes.Just look at the people thronging to see these pastors.Its just that most people just love hero worship.Look at the long queues.Rather than telling their problems to God they tell it to Man pretending to be the Men of God.The sad part ia nobody has a clue about the real apostolic miniatry.Peter as the rock on which the church was built.Early church fathers etc.

  2. One suggestion admin why the name fromtpm?I think its wrong to say just tpm in title because there are so many names to this organization out of our country.Many people arent aware these people have different names in different places.So the rest arent covered under this. Im sure people searching foefor tpm stumble upon this site but not people looking up for ntc and the others.

    • Dear Brother,
      I know that part which you mentioned. However, there are technical difficulties especially with getting it logged into Google Search Engine. If there are similar articles from multiple websites. All of them would be booked for duplicates. What happens then is that, the oldest one gains pre-eminence and the rest is relegated as fraudulent ones.
      Moreover, we are just simple people trying to show the light. We do not have the resource strength to do all that like a corporate house. We have our secular jobs and families. At this point, we are not in a position to get it moving on that large scale.
      May the Lord Lead us according to his will.

      • Most people already know about fromtpm.Unfortunately a small group of people dont know that this group has many aliases.Aliases…ring a bell.We all know who actually needs aliases.Now I know people will come with stupid arguments like even Joseph,Moses,Daniel,Peter,Paul etc had another name.

  3. Nice article. Looks like all these articles are against The Pentecostal Mission (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pentecostal_Mission). Good that a team from TPM has risen to stand against TPM and only those from inside can speak outside the real thing of inside. Though it sounds like a back stabber, opposition is always good for correction and to learn one’s mistakes.

    Liked this site. This should help the people within TPM to get more revived and do everything meaningful and as accordance to what Bible says and not go merely by voice of men.

      • Whistleblower blows from front. They openly speak out. All knows who is blowing the whistle. Back stabber is stealth attack.

        Anyways, these doesn’t matter.

        What matters is to do a self check and keep moving on with scripture.

        • Do you know anything about the “Whistle Blower Protection act?”. Can you ensure the same?

          Whistle Blowers Protection Act, 2011 is an Act in the Parliament of India which provides a mechanism to investigate alleged corruption and misuse of power by public servants and also protect anyone who exposes alleged wrongdoing in government bodies, projects and offices. The wrongdoing might take the form of fraud, corruption or mismanagement.

          As long as TPM is not under the ambit of such an act, there is no real reason for the admin to expose himself. This is an organization with Blood in their hands.

        • YES and NO .

          also it depends upon the organisation and its circumstances ,it is not a must to expose yourself for a good cause . the Trojan horse approach is the best way to expose these wolves . .. also it protects the admins’ close friends and family , otherwise admin don’t give a damn about the so called sold out saints ..

          i bet the tpmafia never expected or never even thought they d’ face a attack like this , we all know they don’t have a clue .. and they cant do anything to the site and i m lovin it .

    • How can any christian call the people behind this site as backstabbers? Makes me wonder if this gentleman is a christian.

  4. In today’s friday service at NTC Sharjah the centre pastor exhorted & challenged the congregation that this was the only church in the world with consecrated saints of God following apostolic doctrines and faith life. On hindsight he may be right. There wont be any other similar organisation with distorted leadership & doctrines. The message was that we should all forget things behind (Read as all issues with previous centre pastor, Jacon & Immanuel bro. leaving faith home etc) and reach forth onto those things which are before. Some motivational talk before the Middle East Centre Convention starting on 7th Nov.
    May the holy spirit alone lead us.

    • Oh,So now people should forget their hypocrisy and all the scandalous actions of theirs and attend the conventions?Audacity???People should boycott till the perverts are removed from their clergy posts and a formal apology is given and they say that they are sorry for harassing people all these times.For seperating the christian communities with their sermons.Set up a committee to work with clergy for transparency.Apologise for the false doctrines.People should stop behaving like blind fanatics and ask questions in the light of The Bible.The fruits show the tree’s identity.Look at their actions and decide for ourselves.More reports coming how these clergy stand there and rudely target people during sermons.Attacking individuals without giving names in sermons.Talking like Goondas during sermon telling people that they arent afraid of believers.They use the mike instead of weapons like guns etc to armtwist people.We need more fervent people like in fromtpm to do the actual ground work.

  5. “(Read as all issues with previous centre pastor, Jacob & Immanuel bro. leaving faith home etc)”
    – redeemed .
    Whats the story ..? ,have we covered these things on this site .?? pls paste the links if there is any . . .

    • Like many keywords used in articles here which may not be in NT, if you are asking for this particular phrase or word in NT, it may not be there.

      But, equivalent or synonymous phrases would be “set apart” as found in Acts 13:2 and Romans 1:1.

      Can we expect Franklin as a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for gospel of God soon (performing wonders and miracles and leading many to the true savior and the right salvation).

      • Dear Anonymous,
        All these words like “Set Apart” are also other words for “HOLY”.
        I would like to know why they chose “Consecrated” instead of “HOLY” if the intention is to be “Set Apart”?

      • Brother Anonymous,
        Don’t try to evade the question like your audacious so called saints? Be specific and sincere to the Bible and yourself.

        • Poor Anonymous guy, he is a TPM junky who knows that he is deceived but he does not have an exit strategy. If only he would swallow his pride and look to the Saviour instead of his saviours, he will be truly saved.

  6. Lately I have noticed that there has been a drastic reduction in the number of silly comments being posted by the TPM faithful. Maybe the wolves have got their flock under control once again by fear.

    Maybe they come and have a peep and go but avoid making any noise as they have realised by now that it is a farcical cause they are following.

    All credit goes to this site and its owners. God bless you and hope you continue to dig deeper into the deeper lies of TPM and expose them.

    • Very true
      They have shown their own Color,
      While defending their church,
      And they exposed them self,

      Dear admin,
      Bring out more scriptural lies and twist,
      So that the readers will one day understand they were following the lies,

      May god bless

      • Brother, If they do not see their life with 140 articles, they will not see with 10,000 articles. Anyway, we will keep posting. One is getting published now. Please do send your testimony.

  7. @Admin
    A doubt on the section of “Pastors”
    You mentioned …///The word itself means “shepherd.” How much we need shepherds today among God’s people! We hear so often the question, “Who is your pastor?” If the question were, “Who is your shepherd?”, I am sure that many Christians would refuse to put a man in that place and respond, “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1)//

    ===> Is the Shepherd/Pastor mentioned in Eph 4:11 refers to Lord Jesus Christ ?
    Isnt the “Pastor”( Shepherd ) a ministry given to the some in church/assembly? Aren’t the Pastors( Shepherds ) are those who take care for and give guidance for the young lambs and young sheep .

    ( I got this doubt because Psalm 23:1 Lord is my Shepherd ” is quoted . Sorry if I misunderstood .)

    • Bro,
      There is a Huge difference between Pastoring/Shepherding as a Function (1 Peter 5:2) in an assembly and Pastor as a Title. These days we see a Man called PASTOR bossing the Local Assembly. This is very far from whatever Ephesians 4:11 was ever intended for. If you see the context of Ephesians its in Plural and Not in Singular.
      The concept that “the pastor” is the premier member and leader of some local institutional church is essentially a Protestant brainchild and is quite striking at that, especially when the singular term
      “pastor” cannot be found in the King James New Testament…..not even once!

      The plural term “pastors” is found in the King James New Testament only once in Ephesians 4:11. This is the only verse in the entire New Testament with the word “pastors”, and the world of Christendom has become totally and fanatically obsessed with this term.
      One verse on which to hang an entire local institutional church doctrine and practice!

      When we look at the letters that were written in the NT Scriptures, we find that none of them were addressed to “the pastor“; important travelers coming to town were not greeted by “the pastor,” and collections of money were not given to “the pastor.”

      You would think that today’s “pastors” ought to seem somewhat aware that their job is strangely unbiblical, but no, exactly the opposite! How could something so obviously true be turned around into a great falsehood and then imbibed and embraced as “sound bible teaching” in our day? Such is the astonishing power of deception.

      In Revelation Chapter 2, there were some professing Christians in Ephesus and Pergamos who did not listen to and follow Jesus’ teaching and example. Jesus’ command to His disciples in Matthew 20:25-28; Mark 10:42-44; Luke 22:24-27 in regards to exercising authority is, “It shall not be so among you.”

      Jesus went on to say, “But whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.”

      In the system that Jesus describes, the chief, the ruler, the head, the leader, the one who is great among a group of Christians, shall be the servant of all; not someone who “calls the shots” and rules over the others.

      But those at Ephesus and Pergamos in Revelation 2 did just the opposite. They created a hierarchal, ruling class of “Nicolaitans” who set themselves above the people in the assemblies. But Jesus directly rebuked them saying, He “hates” (Revelation 2:6) the sin of the Nicolaitans and anyone who holds to that doctrine and/or practices that doctrine should “Repent therefore or else I am coming to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.” Revelation 2:15-16
      Can anything be more frightening than those words that Jesus uttered? And yet…..AND YET, do “the pastors” today even care? The very idea of people actually voting on, and then actually electing, and then actually installing a man into the office and position of “THE PASTOR” in which he supposedly now can rule over and officiate over the people is completely incompatible with the words and example of Jesus!

      Any so-called “pastor” who occupies this man-made, false position and teaches others to recognize him in contradiction to the Scriptures, cannot be considered a true leader guided by the Holy Spirit

      • Sorry Brother .. Little bit confused … I fear i couldn’t present my QUESTION well . Let me re-phrase..

        This is what I understood from Eph 4:11 :-
        All these 5 are ministries ( in your terms Gifts ) given to some or the other members of the CHURCH – the Bride/Body of Christ . They are NOT Titles/Position/Offices.

        But when i went thru the Article , since “Psalms 23:1 :1 Lord is my Shepherd ” is quoted, i thought u referred “Shepherd” in Eph 4:11 as Lord Jesus Christ. So thought of clarifying .

        Is Shepherd in Eph4:11 refer to Lord Jesus Christ himself OR it refer to a ministry/GIFT given to some MEMBERs of CHURCH.

        • In simple terms, I can say that this person who has the Gift of Shepherding is doing this function. He is doing it using the Gift endowed by the Good Shepherd. Therefore it should be said that he is being used as a Channel by the Good Shepherd for your spiritual Needs. I hope this suffices.
