Fifth Tier Introduced by TPM's TejuA few years back, we heard a sermon in which Teju was accusing us of being the Fifth columnist of Christianity.  Since then, he has been enchanted with the FIFTH. Till now we were of the understanding that TPM’s multi-storied eternal habitations had only four tiers. But 2 weeks back in the Youth Camp, they decided that they would need a basement as well. Now as that it is an order coming straight from Zion, we have no reason to disbelieve it. Right?

Before we learn about the brand new habitation, let us review the earlier habitations that TPM published.

Fifth Tier Introduced by TPM's Teju

Now that we are clear about TPM’s earlier structure, we are happy that they have been merciful in accommodating people who could help with their finance and some work. Let us listen to Teju before we proceed.

Teju’s New Tier Introduction

As far as I understand, this new tier is positioned below the New Earth but above the Eternal Hell Fire. I believe that this is a new development as the holy ones in Zion are right there on the Throne of God letting us know the latest. For convenience sake, I shall refer to this new group as “New Earth Basement“.

Cause for this aberration

Fifth Tier Introduced by TPM's Teju
The Zion Puzzle of Teju

When the stalwarts of TPM formulated their doctrines, they hastily slotted people against some names and published their doctrines. As they already constructed the Four Tier structure, their heaven has to revolve around that. All their doctrines are built upon that SAND. The imaginations of A C Thomas is now proving to be a burdensome stone for TPM Clergy. Listen to the voice clip again before proceeding. The voice clip is a portion of Teju’s reply to someone who asked if Good people will go to heaven. Teju always thinks in terms of TPM’s HEAVEN DOCTRINE. His thoughts cannot be removed from the poison that A C Thomas injected the organization with. As he is married to the organization, he cannot have a fresh look at the Bible and study it without any bias. Therefore he is forced to build upon the false doctrine of TPM. The Leaning Tower of Irumbuliyur is now being pulled closer to the ground.

What does the Scripture Say?

Before you start understanding the scripture, you need to throw that TPM Junk to where it belongs. Yes!! throw them to the hellfire, in your mind.

The Relationship between the Sheep and the Shepherd

32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Matt 25:32-33

If Jesus is the Shepherd and the people are his Sheep, who are we talking about?

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. John 10:27-28

The Shepherd has Many Folds

The thinking of TPM Clergy is twisted in such a way that they follow a beaten path by the false teachers. They think in terms of Organization and Denominations with boundaries set by men. When will they come to the conclusion that Jesus does not value those boundaries? In fact, he abhors such divisions (Rom 16:17-18).

I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. John 10:16

It is the height of arrogance and ignorance to claim that your assumed group is the ONLY FOLD. To assume that God has to get into your peanut sized doctrinal box is stupid at best. In the end, each of his fold is merged and made ONE. IT IS NOT A 5 TIER HEAVEN. It is preposterous to claim that you know as much as the Lord. Remain where you are and watch the events unfold as each fold gets merged into the single entity. It is better to accept that “We do not know” rather than acting as a Know All.

The Actions of the Sheep vs Goat

Jesus is citing the reason for his selection so that there is no ambiguity about his judgement. Jesus’s judgement is based on his Kingdom Principle. His Kingdom rules were unveiled in the Sermon on the Mount. I know TPM Clergy will have a tough time when it comes to the Sermon on the Mount. Their lives are the opposite when it comes to the Kingdom rules and they are expecting to be placed on top of Jesus’s kingdom. You cannot expect to enter the heavenly kingdom if you live according to the rules of the earthly kingdom. The evident sign of being Born Again is “FOLLOWING KINGDOM RULES” because you are born as a New Creation in the Kingdom. They have a NEW HEART which has compassion and justice of the KING.

Check out the below facts of the kingdom and compare that with the lives of the Sheep and Goats in Matt 25:31-41.

Life of Kingdom subjectsKingdom PrinciplesSheepGoat
They fed the Hungry and comforted themBlessed are you who hunger now,  for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. Luke 6:21Followed Kingdom PrinciplesFollowed Selfish Earthly Principles
They were Merciful to othersBlessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Matt 5:7Followed Kingdom PrinciplesFollowed Selfish Earthly Principles
They comforted the SorrowfulBlessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matt 5:4Followed Kingdom PrinciplesFollowed Selfish Earthly Principles
Did good to othersIn the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matt 5:16Followed Kingdom PrinciplesFollowed Selfish Earthly Principles

The Great Vs the Least

Teju thought that it is easy to push these people into the “New Earth Basement ” section so that the order is not disturbed. He and his white-clad have to be on top of the order. Let us see how Jesus views the priority list.

Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever ” PRACTICES” and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Matt 5:19

In fact, Jesus is calling these people in Matt 25 as GREAT in the Kingdom of Heaven as they practised the Kingdom Principles which they Taught.

Let us evaluate some obvious PRACTICES that we see in TPM. Now place them in the Kingdom (Great or Least). You can find the Kingdom principles in Matt 5,6,7 and Luke 6.

  • Claiming to be an Orphanage and getting government subsidies when there is no Orphanage or anything of that Nature. All that they do is feeding themselves by fooling people with a Tithe Doctrine. How do you compare TPM with the Sheep in Matt 25:31-41  or Luke 6:21?
  • Every time you separate a Married Couple for your organization, you violate the Principle in Matt 5:32. How would you position TPM against this principle?
  • Matt 6:7 forbids Vain Repetitions. How come chanting and Vain Repetitions are the foundation of TPM Ministry?
  • How would you reconcile Matt 6:19-21 For every Convention Ground Purchased, For every opulent Faith Homes Build, For every huge concrete structure built by TPM.
  • Every time you Prioritize the Rich over the Poor, you are displaying the Master you serve. Compare your actions with Matt 6:24.
  • Every time you have a separate food and separate kitchen for the clergy serving better meals, can you claim to be the tree that bears good fruit? (Matt 7:17)
  •  Are you bearing good fruit every time you serve the wealthy foreigners better, with better food and living quarters for your conventions and youth camps when Indian Believers are made to live in third class accommodations? (Matt 7:17)

Dear Teju, Evaluate the above mentioned,  obvious points for yourself and put a grade against these PRACTICES before you categorize others as least or great. Remove the beam in your own eyes.

The Attitude of the Sheep vs Goats

The Sheep were the ones who practised the Kingdom principles without any expectation of a Reward. When they helped the poor and the needy they did it for the Poor to alleviate their suffering and address their needs. It never played in the back of their minds that they will be rewarded for this work of theirs. Their focus was to remove the suffering of these folks. They were not driven by greed like the 20% rule of T U Thomas.  In short, they did not give or do, to be Rewarded back. That is why they were surprised when Jesus said that they did it to him.

But why were the goats surprised? I guess it was because they did many things to the clergy expecting a reward. Unfortunately, the clergy was not representing Jesus and his kingdom. I also think they were surprised because they never saw these sheep in their Church Buildings. All goats believe in a Transactional God in which they do something to benefit themselves. Listen to the below video.


Being a Christian does not mean that you have to be an active Churchian following the wolves. Most of the Churchians are goats. They follow the instructions from the wolfs who act like sheep.  Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.

The blessed ones are those who have seen a King who is not like the kings of this world.  They are blessed because they know a King who brings real peace, who sees the needy, and who hears the cries of the oppressed. In God’s kingdom, no one is hungry, naked, sick, or alone. To bear witness to Christ as King is to be a messenger of this kingdom–to serve others and thereby profess the invasion of God’s glorious empire.

You cannot be blessed if you do not have the heart of the King. You cannot have the new heart of the king if you are not Born Again. And if you are not Born Again, you cannot become a sheep. And if you are not a sheep, you are a goat.

The Goats can never do the will of the Father. They have their own agenda. Their focus is on themselves and their ministry. Look at some of them who focussed on their own ministry and used Jesus as a bandwagon.

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ Matt 7:21-23

The Sheep are called the “blessed by my Father” (Matt 25:34) because they did the will of the Father.

  1. This is preposterous!!He is saying that ” Here we are reading that there is a group of people who are unfamiliar with Jesus, who are helping least of the Lord’s brethren and who are themselves are going into heaven.
    This way every heathen (other religious good deed practitioners, atheists, philanthropists,) all unfamiliar with Jesus will happily get their passport to heaven.
    How DARE he proclaim that those unfamiliar with Jesus could go to heaven.
    Well in another way it is clear that as per TPM one could lead a sensual, sinful life away from Jesus and still manage to go to heaven by deeds.
    Mat 25:33-40 does not mention a word of what he twisted. It talks about Righteous who being Christlike produced those selfless fruits and was therefore welcomed into eternal Kingdom.
    Teju is surely a fulfillment of 1Tim 4:1 and does a very decent job of spreading the doctrines of devils.

  2. OMG! The people, especially the youths of this CULT group is going wayward by the satanic doctrines introduced by frauds like TEJU KURIEN. I think he is trying to be far-far above his predecessors, who had introduced heaven a three tier train. Now TEJU has come up with another place; he seems to be like Lalu Prasad Yadav(former railway minister) who had introduced a side middle birth in the train.
    Plz forgive me for the word I wanna use for this guy TEJU, as I don’t find any other term from him. O thou fool (TEJU), what a definition of “unfamiliar with Jesus”! How deceptively you have twisted Mathew 25:33-40. According to TEJU “the least of the brethren” are people going to “New Earth”, that means the brethren are the people going to Zion & New Jerusalem. So the doctrine of TEJU has demoted Saint Paul also to his newly invented 4th tier in heaven, because in Ephesians 3:8 Paul refered himself as “less than the least of all the saints”. What would you say about this dear TEJU KURIEN?

    • I think we need another article to explain how blasphemous words teju is speaking. Had respect for Teju, but lost it all today. Shame that none of the youths or TPM pastors have risen to stop Teju’s mouth.

    • The same Bro Teju used to preach (and on record) that if you have been sincere all your life and on just one occasion you failed to read the Bible or pray that day, and it happened to be the rapture day- you will be mercilessly left behind. Same goes with attending Tarrying meetings and so on…

      You see… the opinions of men are fallible… what could be marketed yesterday is out of vogue today and the cycle continues… When in doubt, ask the Spirit of God to guide you through the written Word. It never fails.

  3. We have seen so many perversions in Christianity, but the one Teju is speaking is worse than all that we have heard untill now. Never heard any Christian preacher preach salvation without Jesus. TPM is sinking to depths below hell and Teju is their new hero. He will take TPM submarine safely into hell from here onewards.

  4. These are Servants of Satan…it is loud and clear, these guys are completely mad and they have no reverence for God’s Holy Word just like their father, the Devil.

    Hope God will have mercy on the poor souls trapped in this lie.

  5. It is a good thing for people being convicted of the Truth and following Jesus Christ through tpm. (A pastor’s message should not be the factor of ‘salvation’, it has to be the absolutes of God that led you to Christ). On the contrary, it is a sad and disheartening thing to ignore and continue in tpm despite knowing there are several legalistic exclusive doctrines.

    You idolize them because of their ‘sacrificial’ lifestyle, this is the main reason people are attracted to tpm; believers having high regard for the tpm pastors than for the role of Jesus Christ in their lives, and in turn they have forgotten that they are called to be ‘saints’ themselves. For them ‘saints who are marching in’ are tpm zionists and the rest are all defiled to jerusalem. Even today some of their messages seem to be good, but they have subtely added additional revelations to it. To undo these revelations would be the end of them.

    Whenever someone questions them, a typical tpm believer’s reply ‘they are saints, we should not question’, if they are saints, are you sinners?

    Please read:

    “1 Cor 1:2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:”

    Our answers may sometimes come upon you harshly, but through that rudeness we hope that the severity of the Gospel of Christ is carried through. We do not want any soul to perish.

  6. If people could get saved from wrath of God by their good works, bypassing Jesus then why did God chose Apostle Paul to suffer following,

    2 Corinthians 11:24-27
    Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

    According to tpms style of preaching I will say Apostle Paul suffered 24 types of suffering to save gentiles by preaching Christ to them. Why did he do this if gentiles could be saved without Christ???

    • No! You don’t search that on google. Seek unknown tongue instead. That we want you to do. That our chief pastor want. Not understand anything. That make your habit. That why many tpm believer come here and they understand nothing. Because that habbit they made. Like that we have to grow. We shut our ear. We speak anything. Then we go. That my advice.

      That why our forefather church keep bible in Latin language.

  7. Who is this Teju? Is he the son of the engineer who used to translate in Adyar? Is this Teju or his brother is a guitar player? AND WAS THIS TEJU POSTED IN ST THOMAS MOUNT a few years ago?? If so, I know the man briefly when he came to see my father in his death bed- I have said hello to him.
