Listen to this audio clip and know the person who is behind all the teachings of TPM. MT Thomas (TPM’s Deputy Chief) seems to have understood that the people of TPM are addicted to Alvin’s teachings. We partly believe in what MT Thomas says. Indeed only the spiritually blind can continue in this perversion.
Many TPM Newcomers do not know that Alvin was a sexual maniac and wanted varieties. Therefore he would claim that he has some exclusive revelation and would like to try out that revelation on hapless sisters.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1
Now, do you want to know what was the source those revelations? We have a first-hand testimony by an 85-year-old Lady who had known it during her teens. She is no more with TPM, but would not like to divulge her name for privacy sake.
Pastor Alvin was a very talented person from a well known and respected family in Galle. During the time we joined CPM, he was used mightily by God. CPM then started opening up missions in the West and Pastor Alvin would be travelling regularly to the UK. A few British and Europeans joined CPM and came over to serve God in Sri Lanka, sad to say, they passed away early due to the harsh climatic conditions.
There is a Faith Home located in Mattakuliya (now referred to as Colombo 15). Both young sisters and brothers selected for the ministry (mainly from India) were trained by pastors and senior sisters at this place. I was very friendly with one of the senior sisters and having a desire to join the ministry, I used to spend almost every weekend in this Faith Home. Subsequently, the desire for the ministry left me and I got married but still continued to be a strong CPM believer.
During the late 1950s and early 1960s, Pastor Alvin would be constantly travelling to Europe especially to UK and France, that is when we believers heard that Alvin had a new revelation from God. It was called Higher Sanctification. The theory being a man and woman could lie all night in a room without being attracted to each other or indulge in sex. This was the ultimate test of perfection.
Having this in mind he requested the senior sister in charge of the Mattakuliya Faith Home to arrange for sisters to be brought there so that he could try out this theory with them. Prior to this, I believe he had tried out this experiment and he was reprimanded and asked to repent. He was then reinstated. The senior sister recognized this as being evil and sent away junior sisters to far off faith homes. When Alvin arrived he was livid because there were no young women around. The sister who had befriended me and was my mentor was now a senior sister, training the new recruits. Alvin then called her into his room and expounded the theory of Higher Sanctification, saying “Father, meaning God, had revealed this to him”. She rebuked him and told him that this was not from God but it was from Satan. Being an influential person, she said she was going to report this to the authorities. He then started opening his sarong trying to show her his private parts, she ran out of the Faith Home at that night and housed by a believer.
I know this is true because Alvin wearing soiled clothes (he was always immaculately dressed in white when he went out) came at night to my house searching for the sister who had threatened to report him to the authorities. When Alvin arrived at our house late night in 1962 searching for the senior sister, he told me that it was God the Father that had given him this revelation. Since all believers were kept in the dark, none of us was aware that this was the new doctrine Alvin was advocating and practising with sisters.
I would like to add two more incidents regarding Alvin’s evil.
- First, on Sunday mornings we would go to the meeting hall through the Faith Home; I would encounter junior sisters lined up near the bathroom (I believe this was the only bathroom that had a tub), they told me they were getting ready to wash themselves in the bath water that Alvin had bathed in. I assume that they thought it was sacred water.
- Second, during the time that AA brought out the Sinhala-Tamil issue, Pastors Freddie and Harry Paul (sons of Pastor Paul) were thrust out of the Borella Faith Home and took shelter in the meeting hall. ( I have no idea from where they got their food during this period). We had an anonymous call from the Faith Home to say that Alvin had beaten Pastor Harry and pushed him down because he opposed his new found revelation (Remember that the Celibate ministry is Alvin’s brainchild and not of the Paul Family). A friend of mine (had connections with higher authorities), my husband and I rushed to Borella Faith Home to meet with Pastor Harry. Alvin was seated right in front of the Faith Home, greeted us as if nothing had happened. We met with Pastor Harry who did not want us to call the police. He and his brother were fasting and praying for Alvin. So we had to drop the matter.
It was indeed a sad state of affairs that none of the senior pastors or other elders did anything about the matter, they were, in fact, covering up. Eventually, it was some believers who were lawyers who took up the matter and brought in some semblance of sanity.
After the whole sordid story came out, CPMs heydays were gone. Alvin died a beggar, a drunkard and surrounded by goondas.
My story is authentic, this was a pastor that I highly respected and he is also the one who officiated at my wedding.
There is no hope for TPM unless they throw away the doctrines, practices and their Corrupt Faithhome life, lock stock and barrel
