The TPM Machinery is made to function based on some unscriptural manipulations. To keep this organization running, they need the following.
- Customers/ Masses of people whom they classify as believers
- Voluntary Employees whom they classify as Saints/Apostles/Workers etc
Needless to say, they have to do these manipulations to get the above three items. Therefore, let us have a look at examples of each of the manipulations .
Ensuring a steady money flow
It is understandable that an organization of this size will need a constant flow of money to keep it in motion. The TPM Ministers have gotten into a trap and it closely resembles many corporations. As their business model is different than many corporations, they have to adjust to the needs of this business. So let us see how TPM gets this money flowing into their system without fail.
The Blessing Promise of Monetary Tithe
As explained in many articles earlier, they have manipulated the carnal man within every believer. At the onset, let me reiterate that the monetary tithe is an unscriptural practice to loot money. It is quite natural for all of us to desire a financially prosperous life. That is how humans of the 21st century are. So TPM promises blessings to people who tithe a tenth of their income to them. They even go and propagate stories of people who became wealthy because they regularly paid their tithe. I have heard sermons where they take examples of people who paid “X” amount as Tithe and because of that, few months/years later they could bring 10X or 20X as their Tithe. They quote these instances to instigate this spirit of Mammon within their believers. Very cunningly they never quote the instances of people who lost their jobs or had losses in their business even though they tithed faithfully. Just like any corporation, they will try to brush these things under the carpet.
By Provoking a Spirit of Mammon in people, to earn and accumulate more, they are going contrary to the Spirit of Jesus(Luke 12:21). Let us see how the Apostle identified this evil spirit.
For everything in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–comes not from the Father but from the world. 1 John 2:16
People in TPM are so blind that they never understand the purpose of God. They are thinking that they can do some sort of investment business with God. They are taught that if they give X amount of money and God put in the “Blessing Quotient” into that money, that will result in your Promotion/Raise/growing business etc. And of course, they are taught that they need to get in touch with these Agents(TPM Ministers) who represent God. These carnal people are bringing God to their level of the fallen state.
Do not Fall for these Gimmicks. There is nothing Godly about Monetary Tithing. It just provokes the spirit of Mammon within you and that is a very dangerous thing for a spiritual man.
The Curse Threat of Monetary Tithe
Every business oriented Church organization use Malachi 3:9-11 to manipulate their unlearned folks. Had the people understood the context and the spirit in those verses, they would not have fallen for these gimmicks. Sadly many people who are in the rat race of making more money, think these are special boosters for their prosperity.
I have to appreciate TPM for being extra innovative than many churches. TPM does not stop their Tithing doctrines with Malachi. They Pick up unconnected verses from Genesis to threaten people. So let us have a look at a TPM Twist of the evil Monetary Tithing doctrine.
When Man committed sin, God cursed the ground of the earth(Gen 3:17). TPM takes this verse and does a mega-twist. They say that all our labours are cursed because of the curse in Gen 3:17. Therefore the salary/profit that you earn is completely cursed. So to remove the curse upon your income, you will have to give a tenth of your income to them. And when the TPM Pastors receive the money, the curse of your income is removed. Late Pastor Mohandas even went ahead and said that they purchase brick and mortar with this cursed money and build buildings so that the curse of the earth is contained within those materials.
This threat doctrine of TPM manipulates people who are not eager to part with their money, into giving the money under duress. Of course, they always camouflage the money given to them as money given to God. Naturally, people are more inclined to give in to these manipulations than to study their own bibles. This Tithing doctrine is a Mega Scam in Christianity and TPM is enjoying the fruits of it.
How come this evil doctrine which was never part of the early New Testament Church got into the system? This was introduced by the Catholic Church in the Council of Trent and then after that, all daughters of the Harlot Mother wanted to earn money out of their whoredom. The Pulpit Pimps ensured that this money flow will continue.
The Modern Tithing doctrine is diametrically opposite to what Jesus taught. Jesus never taught any Investment plan as many of the modern Pulpit Pimps imply. Let us check the scripture which clearly tells us the view of Jesus. The way we give has ETERNAL IMPLICATIONS.
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
