Most Christian ministries are like marketing companies who are chasing after ever-increasing targets set by their leaders. Jesus mentioned this phenomenon while talking with the Pharisees of his time. He also mentioned the quality of the people who join after the proselytising.
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.Matt 23:15
Structure of Institutional Churches
As a result of such marketing efforts (I would not call it Evangelization), they are able to get people to join their Group. As Jesus is not the binding factor for this assembly, they always need a different binding factor to hold them together. This binding factor happens to be that particular organization which controls the assets of the land. Therefore they need to post a clergy as the local manager controlling the branch office. Clearly, such a structure resembles a corporate business house. As mentioned in the previous article, that is not how a Church is supposed to be structured.
As primarily these are Religious business houses, Money changes hands. The Branch Manager(so-called minister) who brings in maximum revenue is rewarded and promoted.
Cleansing the Temple
We are well aware that one thing which Jesus hates is the Money Changers. He hated them THEN and he hates them even NOW. Just because Christians like me and you are not taking up the whip, Jesus is making use of BJP and their goons to be the whip. He will do a work of cleansing. It is not going to be a happy thing for many Christians. Do not fall into their trap.
13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!”John 2:13-16
Need for the Hour
Its time that we realized our responsibility. When we give money to these religious imposters without any accountability, we are being UNFAITHFUL STEWARDS. We need to ensure that we are getting a satisfactory response to questions about their ministry. If you do not get any satisfactory response, you should ideally stop giving to them. Ask them to show the book of accounts and be transparent with their finances. Click here to know more about Accountability and Financial Transparency.
Do not assume that building a mansion is a good thing. It is just a waste of money. How many times do you see the Apostles build Mansions/Churches/Faith Homes in the Bible? I do not see any.
When your money is being diverted to build facilities for the Clergy, you need to be alarmed. THEY ARE TAKING YOU FOR A RIDE. No wonder that provision sends BJP and RSS Workers at your doorstep so that you realize your folly. The time is near when these Buildings/Mansions will be attacked and the inmates flee. The HIRELINGS that Promised to be leading you will FLEE FOR THEIR LIVES.
The Church of God is entering a phase where there will be purging and cleaning of his people. The days when you had Magnificient buildings where worldly men preached so-called sermons will be over. True Christians will have to go underground. God will ensure that his chosen people (This is NOT about TPM Fanatics) will separate themselves from the Mystery Babylon and have fellowship with him. He will bring it to Pass.
Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.”2 Cor 6:17
Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
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.1 John 1:3
This is a hard saying and very difficult for anyone to digest as we are conditioned from birth to follow the leader without questioning. But it is high time for true Christians to check if the churches or leaders they are following and supporting are indeed biblical. Its never too late.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
It will not be a surprise if we don’t see many comments on these two articles.
@..”The time is near when these Buildings/Mansions will be attacked and the inmates flee. The HIRELINGS that Promised to be leading you will FLEE FOR THEIR LIVES.”
This is a prophetical saying from ADMN brother whose voice is being echoed and re-echoed and being heard across the globe now.
Notwithstanding this sounds a strong wake up call for the Believers & Workers who are shielding TPM which was responsible for committing these horrible crimes over the years across TAMILADU( places like TOTTUKUDI) and KERALA too. ( very recently we heard about the news item in these columns on section 425 of IPC.( burning of currency notes-in IBR & KOTTARAKARA).
This site has been trumpeting time and again about the crumbling of IBR huge building constructions….a stark reminder of -Jercho like walls in OT times.
Just read what the Wikipedea says about these Jericho Walls:
“The Neolithic wall was complemented by a stone tower built into it. The wall was possibly built in order to prevent floods and the tower used for ceremonial purposes, but the dimensions of the wall (approximately 1.5 to 2 metres (4.9 to 6.6 ft) thick and 3.7 to 5.2 metres (12 to 17 ft) high, as well as that of the tower (8.5 metres (28 ft)) suggests a defensive purpose as well. Furthermore, the construction of such a project implies some sort of social organization, division of labour, and classes. Surrounding the wall was a ditch 8.2 metres (27 ft) wide by 2.7 metres (9 ft) deep, cut through solid bedrock with a circumference around the town of as much as 600 metres (2,000 ft). Kathleen Kenyon commented on the work involved in the construction of the ditch: ”
The above description of these has got a close resemblances to the these IBR H.Qtrs if one looks at these huge structures.
Therefore there is no doubt that when we say —-Jesus is making use of BJP and their goons to be the whip.— and that the swift actions across KASHMIR valley and the country prove an abject reminder for all of us to see in these days.
One reason I think for this catastrophic situation is that all take priests job as OCCUPATION for livelyhood. . In biblical language ” they serve not Jesus but their own belly (Romans 16;18).” Priest job is presented by contemporary world as alternate career path. Either do BE, BA, MBA or choose career path of B.Th, M.div. If you do BE you get job in MNC and if you do BTh you get job in religious institution as branch head.
Just like us who grab every opportunity to get promoted and earn higher salaries every year, priests job when taken as occupation follows Maslow’s pyramid of human need. They gather every possible coin coming their way to get up from basic needs to self actualisation needs. The reason is that it is taken as occupation.
They are never taught that priests job or becoming bishop is responsibility gushing out of hearts to help people running towards their destruction, and not a career path to earn livelyhood. If you want to put something in your belly while shepherding seek alternate means just like Apostle Paul, who choose tent making as means to fill his belly.
Many of them think pastoring a group is like a profession. I attended a Prayer meet in my workplace where the preacher told , I have left IT job which paid well. As a pastor ,God is giving even more than that he told. And his preaching was a similar to secular presentation for a product. He was preaching with PPT and I never heard what Jesus told. That presentation was only about his achievement and his blessings. He was just showing his family and telling Jesus will bless u like him.
I remember once a tpm believer (freind of my father) who wanted to help me find good bible teachers outside tpm, asked me to attend a specific bible class. The topic he told me was something management MBA. I was intrigued saying what MBA lessons can a pastor give me? I assumed they were doing some charity work by teaching management subjects freely. Though I wasnt interested in any management lectures, i didn’t argue with that believer and assured him I will attend. So I attended the class. And as soon as pastor opened his dumb mouth, I took my bag and straightaway came out.
He was actually teaching biblical finance management as he named the study. The more you donate to God the more God would bless you. This is spiritual financial equation he said.
This is how most pastors are fooling gullible uneducated youths by mixing terms from bible and academic field. They will use PPT, laptop and all sorts of terminologies to make people think they are very learned. Uneducated youths most of whom are not even 10th pass fall in their trap. By imparting such trainings these pastors think they are unleashing bunch of evangelists in world. This is the pathetic condition of so called churches in north india.
I think this will be a litmus test between religiosity and spirituality. The vast majority behind the former will soon find their comfort space shaken. But the few ones pursuing the later will face trials with grace as their vision is clear.
Many times I have heared the clergy Charles and T/Durai from Dubai shout that the best permanent job is to come to the ministry. Here there is no uncertainty.
This is so true in many respects. They have fixed routines to deliver like the catholic priests and then sit back and enjoy the goodness of others labour.
The average christian organisations fronting as Church has lost its vision of what Christ commissioned including how to nurture the spiritual growth of a new seed to a full good fruit producing tree.
Besides most are content to be in kindergarten till their grave with no vision to come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature
of the fulness of Christ..
No wonder St. Paul wrote in Heb 6:12 that For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God ; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
Wow!! Very surprised at this refreshed page.
Love the new tiles under proper labels.
Has a newspaper like look and feel making it easier to navigate.
Hope this will even kindle more interest amongst our target readers from the other side of the fence.
God bless the efforts.
The first image in this article is so true… Churches like TPM make you pay at gunpoint. When I used to attend meetings at Adyar FH, I remember the Assistant Brother Robin (then) saying “The salary you receive is cursed but when you pay tithe the rest 90% gets sanctified as the curse is carried away by the servants of God (read: TPM ministers)” He also gave out a list of curses that would follow if anyone failed to oblige.
Talking about //…..AND OTHERS SITTING AT TABLES EXCHANGING MONEY // ….one thing that always flashes to my mind is Sister Kumari sitting in the phone room at TPM Headquarters, Irumbiliyur and readily exchanging various currencies for Foreigners and NRI believers at the exact exchange rates for the day!
//When your money is being diverted to build facilities for the Clergy, you need to be alarmed. THEY ARE TAKING YOU FOR A RIDE. //
So very true about TPM… The properties of TPM are worth in crores and it keeps growing exponentially. Whenever a new FH is opened…they pray for two needs: (i)FAITH HOME IN OWN LAND and (ii) Handful of well to do believers who can provide for the FH requirements.
What a sudden change! I do Very much appreciate the new look it presents in the NEW YEAR with the matching 350 th EPISODE accompanying with it.
God bless the new look that will surely brighten the prospects of the many more redeemed souls from the clutches of darkness of this ‘BEAST’
Kudos Admin for the revamped look and many added features to this site !!! Appreciate your efforts and zeal to spread the light of Christ and fight the end time DECEPTION in Christendom !
Through this site you have driven the fact to hard nut TPM fanatics that “They can pretend to ignore the reality, but they cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”
