Bulldozing people with the Idol of TPM

There is this one verse in Jude which TPM twists to uphold their exclusivity among their unlearned folks.

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 1:3

Please note the underlined part of the verse. TPM Pastors propagate it as the doctrine of ZION which was once delivered to Pastor Paul and Alwyn. Simple souls of TPM do not even need to verify these claims before they wholeheartedly gobble all these stories. Nobody in TPM even questions why this doctrine of ZION was not delivered to the early apostles and why is Jude referring to the Faith which excludes this ZION doctrine, in his statement.

How TPM Propagates the Doctrine of ZION?

A few weeks back, I happened to listen to a message given by M. T. Thomas at Dubai convention. I really for a while wondered whether M. T. Thomas has gone as a Sales Representative to do the marketing of TPM Publications or as a true messenger of God. In the democratic world everyone has the freedom to express the individual view and from my observation, I have come to a conclusion that M. T. Thomas’ message was nothing about Lord Jesus, His love, compassion and his characters but it was just another show of their organization & its publications. Based on my observation, without any reservation, I would call M. T. Thomas a marketing boy who accomplished his task very well for which he was sent.

The Sermon

M. T. Thomas in the sermon was speaking about the earnest desire of TPM’s former chief clergy A. C. Thomas. In the year 1974, two years before his demise he asked, “Whether the coming generation would preach about Zion, our church, and our doctrines?”


From this, it’s very conspicuous that though they call themselves apostles and boast about doing the apostolic ministry yet, in practical terms they are absolutely contrary to the lifestyle and teachings of the early & true apostles. The early apostles including St. Paul who they hold on very high just to defend their celibacy did never preach about Zion. They were not running wild from place to place to establish their own doctrines but to preach what Jesus had commanded them. Now let’s see few verses to understand the desire & preaching of St. Paul.

  • I Corinthians 1:23 – But we preach Christ crucified…..
  • II Corinthians 2:12 – Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel…
  • II Corinthians 4:5 – For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord;….
  • Philippians 3:8 – …..that I may win Christ.

You can see that St. Paul, unlike A. C. Thomas and other TPM clergies, preached Christ crucified and His gospels but not Zion & New Jerusalem as his & his followers’ personal properties. His desire was to win Christ at any cost but I feel that TPM clergies would be content if they got Zion and it doesn’t matter even if Jesus is not there.

I recollect a short article read some years ago about a congregation where on one Sunday gathered so many young & old with so much of personal & other problems. The choir melodiously sang a song of Zion and the preacher preached about the foundations of New Jerusalem made with precious stones; but alas! The people eventually went back home disappointed. I think the same thing would have happened to them (especially new souls) who heard M. T. Thomas on that day in Dubai.

Home call

In the sermon, M. T. Thomas said that in the year 1976 A. C. Thomas departed from the world. Just before his departure, he told that “behold! Pastor Paul, behold! Pastor Paul, he is calling me, I am going”. If it is true, how sad it is? In the Acts of Apostle chapter 7 we read about a man called Stephen, who was not an apostle nor did he profess himself to be one. In verse 59 it’s written that while people were stoning him he called saying, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit”. There is a strong reason why Stephen could boldly commend his spirit to Jesus. In verse 56 it’s written, “And said, behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.” Stephen did not see Abraham, Peter or any other apostle died before him but, he saw Jesus the Son of God and therefore he yielded his spirit to him. Now as per what M. T. Thomas said that A. C. Thomas had seen Pastor Paul calling him the question arises, “who he might have yielded his spirit to?”

Miracles

To speak about the miracles M. T. Thomas quoted the reference from Isaiah 8:18. Then in order to justify or defend their weakness, he diverted the audience attention to the first miracle performed by Jesus at Cana. I don’t disagree with his explanation of water made into wine that is the transformation of our nature. But see how he twisted the incident to defend what they fail to do. He was telling that at Cana, Jesus did not open the eyes of the blind, make the lame walk, make the deaf hear or raise the dead to life but just turned the water into wine. He said all these things just to make his stand strong that all other miracles are not so significant but the transformation of nature. I agree, but he should understand that Jesus did only that, which was needed in all situations. Every miracle is the manifestation of His glory. “The beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested his glory: and his disciples believed on him.” (John 2:11)

TPM hasn’t experienced a spectacular miracle since many decades. It has become like an empty vessel and that’s why it makes a lot of noise.

Separation

He mentioned about separation and said very proudly that, “because of this we do not share our stage with any prominent speaker of other denomination.” Any person with some common sense will understand that this is nothing but the pride of being the best among all other denomination. Again they are living contrary to what St. Paul spoke in Philippians 2:3, “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.” II Corinthians 6:14-17 give the list of those, one needs to separate from. Bible never permits the blood washed children of God to remain separated from one another. Every blood washed child in God’s sight is a member of the body of Christ (I Corinthians 12:12). Paul in I Corinthians 12:25 says, “That there should be no schism in the body.” It’s truly unfortunate that TPM is dividing the very body of Christ. The recent circular on “Engagement & Marriage” is the proof of that. Jude 1:19These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.” So it’s understood without any doubt that TPMites are sensual and have no Spirit because they emphasize the unbiblical separation.  God has promised, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Mathew 18:20)” Most Holy God is so humble that he has no problem to give His holy presence to them who gathered in His name. But when TPM teaches & maintains a separation from the blood-bought children of God, what does it mean? Doesn’t that show the height of pride in them? These are the proud followers of humble Jesus.

Worldliness

Bulldozing people with the idol of TPMM. T. Thomas was asking the audience that, why we don’t wear silk sarees and put on ornaments? Then he was telling them to buy a book with the title “WORLDLINESS” to know the answer. Isn’t it the best way to promote their publications? I think M. T. Thomas has been appointed a “Brand Ambassador” of TPM doctrine books by the organization.

These people who teach others not to wear the costly apparels, has anyone ever tried to know the cost of the white costumes they use? Perhaps the cost of cloth is not much but if you count the maintenance cost to keep it clean & crispy it’s costly. Every year they allure the young brothers & sisters in the name of Zion to join the ministry. These fresh junior recruits, especially the less educated & less good looking are used as maids & servants to do such jobs. These people who talk about worldliness & separation have a double standard in life.  TPM top clergies were in full suits when they went to Dubai for the convention. But once they reached their residential premises they changed that costume and wore the TPM uniform. They don’t want to appear religious priests to the world, so they use the normal costumes to be one with them. When they go to their fake homes & worship place, in order to be recognized as saints by their followers they put on the white. These people are like a fish called “Eel” which shows it face when encounters a snake and the tail when encounters the fish. Are they not the hypocrites? Muslim Imam, Jain monks, Buddha monks, Jacobites & Marthoma Priest are more upright than these hypocrites who do not hold the dual standard in costumes. I can say that what Jesus had told the hypocrite Pharisees of His days in Mathew 23:5 applies to these present days Pharisees.

Another example of worldliness in TPM is the current renovation work of the chief Pastors block at Irumbiliyur. There was a report that the whole block is lifted 5 feet with jack. What was the urgent need for this renovation? They can justify this act with so many reasons. When many TPM believers are suffering without proper shelter & food, these people have so much money to do this expensive renovation. Isn’t it a part of worldliness? I have been getting reports of the Chief Pastor traveling in Mercedes Benz to his palace. I know, for them all what they do is needful and justifiable; but if others do, it is waste of money and unjustifiable. Stop being deceived and deceiving the people to escape the wrath of God.

Conclusion

Dear Reader, the purpose of writing this lengthy article is to make you understand the true stand of the false teachers of TPM. They don’t practice what they preach. They call their doctrines “Deeper Truth” but some said that “in our desire to go deeper, we have failed to go higher!” How true is it with TPM? The more they are talking about the deeper truth the less high they are able to grow. Wake up! Every doctrine that does not square with the scripture is to be rejected no matter how many miracles it showers every day. God told the Israelites in Deuteronomy 2:3, “Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.” God who loves you is saying the same thing. It’s long enough since you believed the lie of TPM’s false teachers but now turn to the truth given by Jesus & His true apostles.

  1. Recently, I was contesting the exclusive TPM only doctrines with a staunch TPM believer. I asked him to explain the doctrines of zion, secret coming, white dress, separation with help of scriptures. While answering me, One of his sentences shocked me beyond wits. He told not all things are provided in Bible. The doctrines needed in this technologically advanced days are provided by the Holy spirit to the saints. Hence he asked me not to compare all the doctrines taught by saints with Bible as Holy Spirit himself is teaching us thru saints. My reply stumped him a little. My reply to this was that if we could accept the doctrines of these so called saints without comparing it with scripture, why couldn’t we accept the doctrines from a prophet which he reportedly received from an Angel and become the children of Ishmael nor could we accept the worship of Mary as professed by catholics. With this answer I was branded a backslider. This shows the level of brainwashing everyone has undergone. I thank God, in the eve of New Year, for opening my eyes to behold the wonderful things.

    Looking back and introspecting the brainwashing we’ve undergone all these years, this cult has separated us from all the walks of life. We have been made to consider this cult as our better half, as our spouse. Now, It’s hardly possible to accept that one’s spouse is an adulterer even if faced with the hard truth. One clings on to the hope that all such evidence is false. Such is the state of most of the TPM believers who face the truth about the nature of this cult. They try to sweep the evidence under the carpet portraying it as a false witness from Satan trying to smudge their mind.

  2. Dear Admin,
    I know there are shortfalls in TPM church.
    So what next??
    Which is the true church on earth according to you?
    Where are you expecting people to attend meetings after leaving TPM Church?
    Should People Join to RC or Other protestant denominations?
    How sure are you that these other churches are perfect in all aspects?

    I know some people who left TPM church and joined other Churches and after sometime they practically realised that it is even worse outside than the TPM church and came back and silently started attending our church meetings again.

    Dont quote Our Body is the Church or Place where People gathering is the church.. Yes it is …But name the church on earth which is perfect in all aspects.

    1. //But name the church on earth which is perfect in all aspects.//

      From the above, I understand that you want me to identify an Institutional church(human organization) which can be identified as the Church of God. If I understood it rightly, maybe you can help me answering the below question to help you get there.

      Question. Find me a Robot which can give birth to human babies?

      If you can answer me the above question, you should get the reply to your own question in it.

    2. //I know some people who left TPM church and joined other Churches and after sometime they practically realised that it is even worse outside than the TPM church and came back and silently started attending our church meetings again.//

      Well, I know a huge number of people who left TPM for good and they are happy they are out and never regret their decision.

      The Question to be answered is “Are you leaving the organization for the right reasons?
      If you are disassociating from an organization to join another organization, it might end in disaster or betterment. It’s just like you leaving a corporate to join another for your secular job. Sometimes the other organization might not be good as they promised.


      Here my focus is not about Organization Jumping. Fellowship happens among disciples of Christ and not among members of an organization. And the most important part of your fellowship is The Father and the Son. Its not the pastor or the organization or your liturgy. Till you do not understand it, you will continue in this quagmire.

      “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 1:3

      The problem with you is that you are looking for fellowship with clergy and other materials and people …So you will keep getting disappointed.

      Why are you asking the admin to lead you? Is not Admin another human just like the clergy? This is because you have never asked the Lord for his Holy Spirit to lead you. You do not have a direct relationship with him and hence that vacuum was replaced by the Clergy of TPM for easy guidance. Throw the Clergy and any human from the throne of your heart and place Jesus in that place.

      A basic thing to look is the doctrines of Trinity, Salvation, Baptism, Holy Living in accordance with the scripture. Once that is right, check out if 1 Cor 14:26 is being followed in the fellowship. Whatever be the case, ASK THE LORD. HE IS THE BOSS…. Admin of this site is just a pointer directing you to Jesus and is not a replacement for Jesus.

    4. Dear Brother Truth Seeker,

      You seem to agree that there are shortfalls then why do people in this exclusive doctrine claim that this is the only truth with great doctrines. If it is the case that this is also imperfect with shortfalls just like any other fellowship then why your Pastor MT doesn’t allow other speakers to speak in your stages.

      Oops ? I must read the book published by TPM to know why TPM doesn’t allow other speakers as told by Pastor MT.

    5. Dear Truth seeker,
      If a person leaves the organisation say, TPM looking at the fallacies of the clergy or the congregation, then their later state will be worse than the initial state. However, the change should be only if for the fallacy of the core beliefs, doctrines. If so, they will never return. This is because the former is governed by emotion and the latter by reason.
      As for finding the correct church, All are work in progress and there is no perfect church. If anyone advertises that theirs is the perfect one, FLEE. The Lord who opens your eyes to see the fallacy of doctrine in a church will lead you to the one which is according to his word should you surrender to him. If you find that a organization character – assassinates any one who has left their fellowship, FLEE. It is a cult.

    6. Dear Truth Seeker,
      I cannot agree with your argument that people who have left tpm are back in the fold silently.
      I know many pastors from TPM after leaving this unbiblical organisation, now having wonderful ministry and bringing many enslaved tpm believers to JESUS according to the written word of BIBLE.
      One example, one Pastor Issac who was a TPM saint many years ago left the organisation after reading the bible without tpm lens, now has a ministry at Hyderabad having more than 3000 members. Every Sunday he conducts 3 services.
      Like many are there.

  3. I think, truth seeker has found the truth. he is silent because he is convinced that the teachings of TPM are unbiblical.

    1. Brother do you think that these people will accept the truth so easily. As I have said these people have been indoctrinated from age 3 and they will not hear no matter what . Still there is a group of people who hear the voice of the shepherd and follow him.

      “But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
      ‭‭John‬ ‭10:26-27‬ ‭

  4. Great article .
    Especially the mention of having double standards with respect to clothing.
    Wearing white in India and cladding a suit if they are travelling abroad is true hypocrisy at its best.
    These workers are like chamelions who change colors according to their needs and wants.
    Once again I appreciate your hard work to unmask the true cult called TPM and its atrocities perpetrated on gullible believers aka slaughter goats.
