When the runaway train has a crazy driver, you can expect the train to run even in the desert without any rails. Same is the case with this cult organization that we all call “The Pentecostal Mission“. As our TPM fanatics are blind of their clergy’s mafia-like extortion techniques, I would like to bring to your attention to this TPM rowdiness. They seem to have one simple motto. “Beg, Threaten, Steal, We want Money“. Extortion at its Best.
TPM’s monetary tithe law is not only against the Bible but also is against the very thinking of Godliness, even by heathen standards.
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Cor 6:10
25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Matt 23:35
Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees and that write grievousness which they have prescribed(Monetary Tithe); 2 To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless! Isaiah 10:1-2
12 In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbors by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord God. Ezek 22:12
Enjoy the dessert with threats of Divine Retribution
In our previous article, we had mentioned about the torture of sitting long hours of boring, unspiritual, legalistic sermons by TPM Pastors. Now it’s time for some dessert at the end of the full course meal. (For our non-Tamilian friends, the preacher is piling up curses on non-tithers and manipulating them).
“Many people of God give their salary envelope. i.e tithe. But some never give. Pastor T.U Thomas has said to give the tithe. Some give tithe in everything but not in bonus. You will get cursed. You will get cursed, cursed, cursed. You will get great difficulty in life if you don’t give. Let’s Praise God…”
Do I want to ask Which God do these people serve? Of Course
As mentioned by this goon minister of TPM, he is piling the curse from his god on instructions from TU Thomas. He is unable to find verses from the New Testament to impose his curses. If a person is doing things paradoxically opposite to Jesus, whom do you think is he following? Undoubtedly, he has to be following the Devil. Therefore you should not be surprised that they are showing forth the fruits that come from their father, the Devil.
His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. Psalm 10:7
Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money. Yet they look for the LORD’s support and say, “Is not the LORD among us? No disaster will come upon us.” Micah 3:11
The Christian Way
Let us check some scriptures which negates this kind of Cursing that he is piling on his ignorant followers.
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” Galatians 3:13
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Romans 12:14
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Eph 4:29
Jesus set the example that we are to follow, returning blessing for cursing and committing Himself to His heavenly Father’s care. (I Peter 2:21.) “When he [Jesus] was reviled, [he] reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness . . .” (I Peter 2:23).
If we bless those who hurt us, God will take full responsibility for whatever punishment should be administered to offenders. It is our responsibility to overcome evil with good, and speaking words of blessing is one way to do that.
The Apostle Peter specifically addresses the need to bless those who revile us: “. . . [Do not render] evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile . . . . The face of the Lord is against them that do evil” (I Peter 3: 9-12).
The Apostle Paul gave this instruction to the believers in Rome: “Bless them which persecute you; bless, and curse not . . . Recompense no man evil for evil. . . . Avenge not yourselves . . . Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirsts, give him drink . . . . Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:14, 17, 19-21).
What do you want to inherit, blessing or cursing? That’s what you should speak to others.
Even though I feel sorry for that TPM Minister who was manipulating the people with him. We all know how far he is from Jesus. The case for his congregation is doomed by such leaders. We can pray and also bless them that curse us for not being part of the extortion.
This was Paul’s counsel to the Roman believers, following Proverbs 25:21-22: “‘If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.’ Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Rom 12:20-21).
Let’s break ugly, destructive cycle of the flesh and follow in the footsteps of our Master who forgave those who crucified him.
It is the path to life and blessing – not just for us, but also for those who oppose us.
Before I conclude, let us listen to another goon who is defining protocols for his extortions. Wanting to sound like some person who is particular about journal entries ..Huh!!! Where are their balance sheet and annual audited reports? Reminds me of the Swach Bharat Cess. This is TPM’s Irimbuliyur Cess.
Brothers and sisters those who are wholeheartedly giving offerings give it a prime importance. Those who give offerings for convention write on the envelope as “convention offering” and give to the saints of God. We humbly ask you to pray for ministry, in your individual and family prayers.
