Biblical Fellowship vs Camaraderie of TPM

The Pentecostal Mission has replaced many Biblical Phrases with a Cultic Twist.  One of the twists is called the “Fellowship of Saints“. We all know that they have a new definition of Saint contrary to the Biblical Definition.

Biblical Definition of Saint: Anybody who is washed by the Blood of Christ and has accepted Jesus as his Lord. Anybody who is a member of the Body of Christ. (Ephesians 1:1, Colossians 1:2, 1 Cor 1:2, Phil 1:1)

TPM Definition of a Saint: Members of their official Clergy system.

The people who assemble in the Pews of TPM service are called “Believers”. These believers are not to be called as Saints in TPM Terminology. If you are a TPM Believer and would like to get the terminologies corrected, you need to publicly refer to all Born Again Christians as Saints. When you do it repeatedly, the TPM clergy will get the message.  At this point, I would like to take a deviation to another terminology used by many of TPM believers. They refer to their Ministers as Servants of God. For them the words Saints and Servants of God are interchangeable to mean their clergy. But when we refer to them as Servants of God, we are actually taunting God. Do you really think these people are “Servants of God” ? I stopped calling them Servants of God, years back when I realized that usage of the Term for TPM Ministers is amounting to agreeing that these people are indeed send by God. I always refer to them as “TPM Ministers”. They do not represent God in any form or deed to me. They are more like an executive representing an organization as part of the Business program.  So it is better to get them addressed for what they are.

Very similar is the TPM terminology of “Brother”. You should be surprised if TPM Clergy would even refer to another church believer as Brother, with Full Intent. They may use it because of the lack of another appropriate word.

What is the Biblical Fellowship we are expected to have?

The Apostle John clears out the definition of a  “Christian Fellowship” for us.

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. We write this to make our[a] joy complete. This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 

1 John 1:3-7

The Apostle clearly mentions the basis for a Christian Fellowship. The basis for a Christian fellowship is the communion you have with the Father and his Son Jesus Christ. So when people having the basics of Christian Fellowship right, you are complete unit in yourself (member of the Body of Christ).  Now when you share the Love of Christ with another like-minded and like-spirited Christian, the flow happens. This situation is illustrated by Christ in a parable.

Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 

John 15:4-6

The Fruit of the Vine is an expression of the Vine through the branches. When we love our fellow beings, it is Jesus(Vine) producing the fruit through us. Similar is the case for the other fruits of the Spirit. Joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

In a True Fellowship, irrespective of all external misfits, there is a union of the Spirit and Equality in the Body (1 Corinthians 12:21). Every part of the Body has to do its own ministry.  There is not even one part which does not have a ministry. Moreover, the Ministry and Gifts are under the direct control of the Head (Vine, Father/Son).

A Fellowship Meeting of the Body of Christ would look like this.

26 What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up. 

1 Cor 14:26

Note the highlighted text with the underline. Nobody is excluded. It is not an Elder/Clergy dominated meeting place. The Order of the Service is controlled by the Spirit and not some organizational rules.

The Camaraderie of TPM

Biblical Fellowship vs Camaraderie of TPMIn a secular way, both terms Fellowship and Camaraderie can be said to be equal. The Bible clearly identifies what it means by Fellowship. The Biblical Fellowship implies of a spiritual Union inspite of very evident diversity.  But what a Camaraderie brings in is an external uniformity bound together by a set of rules and regulation to replicate a fellowship. Many of them say that they are FITLY FRAMED TOGETHER in that so-called Fellowship which I would refer as Camaraderie. Camaraderie works well for a comrade based organization like the Communist Party or the RSS/BJP.

If you ask a TPM Believer about their Talent and Ministry, you will get very vague answers because they do not have any. An organization and its meetings need some definite rule to run, but a biblical fellowship is not run by rules. It is run by the gifts and fruits of the Spirit. In TPM, Jesus is not more than a rubber stamp to further their agenda. It is their SAINT-CENTERED Meeting.

Consider a TPM Sunday Service. The Agenda of the Meeting will always be as follows.

Order No.Program NameConducted By
1Welcome SongClergy Sister
2Chanting of PraisesClergy Brother/Pastor
33-4 Linguistic SongsClergy Sister (Drumming by another Sister) with increased tempo for the last song.

5Testimony sayingSet of believers who praises the work of their Clergy and requests for prayers
6English SongClergy Sister
7Indoctrination SermonMale Clergy Member and Bible read by Clergy Sisters
8Final PrayerSenior Most Clergy Sister
9BenedictionSenior Most Male Clergy
.

Dear Reader, Contrast the above program sheet with 1 Corinthians 14:26

26 What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up.

The Pew Group of TPM has only one simple thing to do. Attend the Meeting and watch the Show. COME, HEAR, SEE, GIVE and GO. If this is what you feel is Fellowship, All that I can do is wish you Good luck. You are just not a Born Again Christian. You are a dead branch or a Comrade of an Organization. The Official Program of a comrade based organization cannot be changed.  I am sure many would say they can “Say a testimony”. I am sorry to burst your bubble. There is a Huge difference between saying a testimony and Being a witness. Nowhere in the New Testament, you can find “Testimony Saying”. Leave alone classifying it as a Ministry. This “Testimony Saying” time is a hogwash to keep the masses under control.

Conclusion

Biblical Fellowship vs Camaraderie of TPMWe have received many emails and comments from TPM Fanatics who feel offended at this site. Every time they have only one answer to give. They say that TPM is God’s Organization and anybody who says anything against them will be severely tormented in Hell.  This is a fear they are bound with. They cannot see another Denomination Christian and love them as they would from a person of TPM. The superiority complex somehow kicks in. If you have this “Us” vs “They” attitude when you see another Christian, you are NOT a member of the Body of Christ. When you see another Christian and think of ways to get him into TPM, you are not part of the Body of Christ.  You are an Organization Comrade. Plain and Simple.

Have Fellowship with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ, and you have put yourself in the Right Track. Abhor Divisions and Organizational Camaraderie if you are serious about your eternity.

  1. All the other works for Sunday meeting are splitted among slaves(believers) who are attending TPM
    1.) Sweeping the Floor –> Given to youth girls
    2.) Arranging the Mat, Mike –> Youth Boys
    3.)Washing Vessels after sunday service –>Believer Sisters ,Youth girls (It depends on person leading the fake home).

    Please do not attend this cult . It is a demonic and dangerous doctrine being preached. If you are really serious in obeying Jesus please get away from this demonic institution.
