Many of our readers have been reporting incidents of arrogance from the Clergy. One of that which we get the maximum is that of Thambi Durai who has a misplaced priority about his tenure in the UAE. From what I understand he has only one aim in his life. To get the money that is in the pocket of the believers into his own pocket. Nothing else. He has no concern for the people who come to TPM DUBAI, especially if the person is a poor guy. Recently he publicly insulted a person who stood up for testimony for the sole reason that he belonged to another church and attempted to sing a NON-TPM Hymn before giving his testimony.
The deception of this evil spirit of Pride is that it gives a feeling of unbridled power and still you do not realize that you are Proud. You always get a reason to justify that pride as something nobler for “GOD”. We know absolute power corrupts absolutely. This illusion gets into the brain and the individual is addicted to this satanic perception of power. Because of the fact that this person has immense power, he is not in a position to get any advice that is contrary to his addictive desires. Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Lenin etc are sample masterpieces.
Question: Do you know why such tyrants come into existence?
Answer: The only reason why such tyrants come into existence is that their antics are being accepted by the audience. Had the audience nipped the situation at the very bud, this monster would not have existed. Therefore the bigger responsibility for such behaviour by Thambi Durai and likes rests with the TPM group who is named “Believers”. As far as TPM is concerned, this stage was attained by 90+ years of indoctrination and ignorant submission.
Cultivating Arrogance and Ignorance
This big farm of TPM where Pride of the Clergy and Ignorance of the Laity is cultivated is called the SUNDAY SCHOOL. Right from the Sunday school, the kids are being manipulated by ignorant teachers who are controlled by the deceptive Clergy. One such manipulative text is being circulated through Whatsapp.
In the above, we can see that they have removed the context and even cut out part of scriptures to force their manipulations. We are writing this article specifically for Sunday school students so that they can verify for themselves, the level of manipulations they are being subjected to. We shall discuss the category of each of the manipulations they are putting you through these unscriptural rules. We shall also let you know some very straight commandments of the Lord and his Apostles which TPM has been blatantly disobeying.
Should not Do Facial (Point 1 for Girls)
Note the verse they have quoted.
You are the children of the LORD your God. Do not cut yourselves or shave the front of your heads for the dead, Deut 14:1
Kindly go to a beauty parlour/ Salon and ask the folks there if they do cut people or shave the front of their heads while doing Facial and let me know. As far as I know, facial does not have anything to do with the above. Moreover, this is regarding a gentile practice done by the Canaanites during those days, ON BEHALF OF THEIR DEAD. For an argument sake, let me accept that they cut people and shave the front of their heads. Now how do we deal with the context “ON BEHALF OF THE DEAD”? If we can ignore this important context, we can as well make rules stating that “Nobody should eat fruits” and quote Gen 2:17. Unless we stand up to such manipulations by the Clergy, we are just enjoying the broad way to hell. Call it whatever you want (Zion, New Jerusalem). Don’t expect God to honour your willful disobedience.
Should not dye or colour their Hair (Point 2 for Girls)
Note the verse they have quoted
And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. Matt 5:36
Unless you are reading with your brains leased out, you should have easily understood the difference between “Cannot” and “Should not“. Is Jesus quoting about dyeing of hairs or saying about your inability to change the natural way of life? Personally, I too do not like dying of hairs as that is a superficial way of thinking. But quoting a scripture to manipulate people, is much more dangerous as you are fiddling with the scriptures which is God Breathed, to mind control others. Do you think that God approves it? God is much interested in the Means used to reach the End. He will never approve of a corrupt means to achieve the desired end.
Should not apply Nail Paints and Grow Long Nails (Point 3 for Girls and Point 2 for Boys)
Let us check the Verse they have quoted.
Immediately what had been said about Nebuchadnezzar was fulfilled. He has driven away from people and ate grass like the ox. His body was drenched with the dew of heaven until his hair grew like the feathers of an eagle and his nails like the claws of a bird. Daniel 4:33
This is an event that happened in the life of Nebuchadnezzar. I don’t see any place where we see Nebuchadnezzar having applied Nail Paints. Moreover, if you happen to lose your sense, it’s natural for your hairs and nails to grow and without trimming it becomes a mess. At no point in time, this verse is condemning the Babylonian King for not trimming his nails. Just as in the above point, if they had said this statement plainly without quoting such unconnected verses, I would have agreed to it as it is good to trim your nails and keep it nice without any artificiality. But as soon as you are quoting scriptures inappropriately to mind control kids, you are being manipulative and allowing the spirit of witchcraft to operate. We need to show doors to such Jezebels who act as spiritual people.
Should not wear Short Kurta (Point 4 for Girls)
Wearing decent clothing is always good and I recommend it. Our clothing needs to cover body and not expose parts which may be a cause for offence/temptation. I agree with the quoted scriptures for the purpose. However, I would like to have avoided the use of Zephaniah 1:8 as it is strictly a different context.
And it shall come to pass in the day of the Lord’s sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel. Zeph 1:8
9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10 but (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. 1 Tim 2:9-10
We also need to note that the Timothy Reference specifically speaks of “Costly Array”. It does not identify the colour, but the Price of the item in the market. How come the circular does not address this part? We have TPM teachers and Believers who come in White Sarees which cost many thousands of rupees. How come the Gold Rim of the Specs and the Rolex Watches gets a pass?
Should not wear Leggings (Point 5 for Girls)
No Comments as they have not quoted any scripture to support their dictates.
Should not wear Jeans Pant (Point 6 for Girls)
Note the scriptures they have quoted.
5 A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wears women’s clothing, for the Lord, your God detests anyone who does this. Deut 22:5
This point is one of the best samples of TPM Cherry Picking of Old Testament laws and applying it selectively to the New Testament believers (if I could call TPM folks as NT Believers). How come they ignore many of such commandments from the books of Moses and take this one?
Why don’t TPM pastors obey by fixing Tassels on their Cloak? Why don’t they read the rest of the verses of the same Chapter?
Make tassels on the four corners of the cloak you wear. Deut 25:12
Let us look at some scriptures which shows the cherry picking by TPM Clergy.
10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.
According to the above verse, should not they refrain from eating Prawns, Lobsters, Crabs, Sear Fish and a horde of sea creatures which is classified as abominable? As far as I know almost all of them love to eat these kinds of seafood. Where do they get these cherry-picking tricks?
Quoting one more example below.
“‘Keep my decrees. “‘Do not mate different kinds of animals. “‘Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed. “‘Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material. Lev 19:19
Do they not know that their undergarments/socks have mostly Nylon/elastic rubber threads Woven into the linen? What do we do with multi fabric and Polyester coats and suites which the TPM Pastors love to wear when they take an international flight?
If they want to be perfected by the Old Testament laws, they cannot accept some and ignore the rest. They have to fulfil the complete 613 laws. No exceptions granted.
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. James 2:10
Dear Parents of Sunday School Students,
You cannot ignore the scriptures and expect that the teachers and the clergy will take care of your kids. You have been blessed with children and you have a responsibility which God will require from you. Outsourcing your spiritual responsibility to religious brokers is not a valid excuse.
Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it. Prov 22:6
The above verse also means that, if you train up your child in the TPM Crooked way, they will Not depart from it.
