The last few articles and the testimony published in this site has brought to focus on one aspect of TPM Life. The women clergy are involved in many immoral activities and has brought in shame the name of Christ. Their wayward life could not be covered by the “Ujala white sarees” they drape around them. There are quite a lot of reports with us which are quite embarrassing for us to publish.
We have been warning about this ministry where unmarried people of opposite sex stays under the same roof is a definite sign of rebellion to God’s laws. The New Testament has laid down clear instructions about how the church should deal with unencumbered women. During those days, it was focussed on women who became widows. However, those instructions are also to be applied to unencumbered women in TPM’s service.
Service by unencumbered women
These details can be found in Chapter 5 of Paul’s First Epistle to Timothy.
In this chapter, we see a category of unencumbered women who are taken up for service within the Church. Paul gives strict instruction about such women and the conditions in which they can be enrolled in the services to receive the help of the local church.
9 Let a widow be enrolled if she is not less than sixty years of age, having been the wife of one husband,[a] 10 and having a reputation for good works: if she has brought up children, has shown hospitality, has washed the feet of the saints, has cared for the afflicted, and has devoted herself to every good work. 1 Tim 5:9-10
Paul is clearly ensuring that these widows who receive recognition are truly women of character and has received testimony in their lives. He also makes sure that these women are over sixty years old(After Menopause) and do not have any immediate family members who could support them. He additionally attaches the word Widow so that he makes it clear that these ladies have the experience of how to raise a family and interact with other family members in a motherly way. As these elderly ladies have crossed the menstrual age, their hormones are under control and will not be thinking of attracting a man. Can you say this about the Sisters within TPM?
3 Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. 4 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 1 Tim 5:3-4
What about unencumbered women of lower age group?
Organizations like TPM go overboard with the word “Widow” in this chapter and discard the spiritual truths spoken by the Apostle. They do this because these spiritual truths condemn their ministry through and through.
Let us check what is written in verses 11 to 15 in this chapter.
11 As for younger widows(unencumbered women), do not put them on such a list. For when their sensual desires overcome their dedication to Christ, they want to marry. 12 Thus they bring judgment on themselves because they have broken their first pledge. 13 Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also busybodies who talk nonsense, saying things they ought not to. 14 So I counsel younger widows to marry, to have children, to manage their homes and to give the enemy no opportunity for slander. 15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan.
He is clearly prophesying what would happen to a TPM Worker Sister. In the heat of the moment, they somehow jump to the TPM bandwagon of Zion. But after their emotional high gets cooled down, the hormones start raging within them. At that point, they drift and are not able to hold against the nature that they are created with. He, therefore, clearly instructs these younger women to MARRY and BEAR CHILDREN. If they do not follow the instruction of Paul, they will Go From HOUSE to HOUSE and be Busy Bodies talking Nonsense which they ought not to.
The Lord and His Apostles made it amply clear about certain family responsibilities that we have to do. One of that is clearly highlighted by Paul in verse 4
practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God.
Practising Christianity is shown by taking care of parents and grandparents along with the family.
Abandoning one’s own parents and grandparents to cook and clean and pleasure crooked men in white garbs is truly against the express commandment of God. Religious rules or misinterpreted verses cannot overrule this basic precepts. The TPM environment is one which adds fertilizer and steroids for such perversion to thrive.
8 Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Tim 5:8
The above verse condemns TPM Clergymen and Clergywomen as being worse than an unbeliever.
9 And he continued, “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe[a] your own traditions! 10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and mother,’[b] and, ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’[c] 11 But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is Corban (that is, devoted to God)— 12 then you no longer let them do anything for their father or mother. 13 Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.” Mark 7:19-13
