Who Do The Christian Fellowship Really Worship?

Hello all, I have been pondering the issue of worshipping and giving glory to God and what actions actually happen in any church service of any particular congregation of denomination. In most mainstream churches, there is a specific focus on the "worship service" as being a time when the congregati...

Re: David Garth Falk --- Welcome to the real world outside the TCF bubble

thanks for the heads up on this one Boundary Rider. This is very sad news to read this, although not unsurprising. Unfortunately this incident of abusive behaviour is entirely consistent with Falk's abusive treatment of the congregation throughout his 35 years of "lecturing in theology". Looks like ...

Re: Agape Meals not Communion

Just a quick comment on the importance of communion to Christians throughout the globe. Depending on which denomination you adhere too, there may be few or may be a lot of traditions. Certainly this is a common comment and accusation used by the CF Elders against all mainstream christian churches as...

Re: Agape Meals not Communion

Watcher, I really like your analogy about leaving the Christian Fellowship being like a swim at the beach and is so true. Particularly when the temperature you are coming from is like the poor frog being in the water pot being slowly heated to a boil and the poor from doesn't even know he is being b...

Re: Agape Meals not Communion

Thanks for the update from Melbourne Paul. It certainly is strange there are no elders in Melbourne as it goes against everything that the Christian Fellowship stood for for decades - it was eldership that was the centrepiece. How times have changed. Can you confirm that it is now only Vic Hall who ...

Agape Meals not Communion

I heard through the grapevine that there is a "new" revelation in Fellowship Town. Due to his superior connections to the almighty, the latest revelation that Supreme Beloved Leader Vic Hall has changed communion. Of course we all know that Vic receives " special revelations from God " which apparen...

The Nature of Abusers

I was considering the nature of abusive and controlling people the other day. I have noticed some common factors. One factor in particular is the unique weakness of an abuser to be able to verbally abuse people, sometimes in a violent and loud manner, and yet nearly in the very same breath claim to ...

Re: The Christian Fellowship Leopard has not changed its spots

I agree with you Paul. Evidence of the Christian Fellowship changing its ways will be when they stop the dreadful deliberate shunning. Currently I know of a lot of families where children and grandchildren are forbidden to see fathers and grandparents (even though those people are committed practici...

The Christian Fellowship Leopard has not changed its spots

Hello Dear Streetcar Readers, over the past 12-24 months it appeared that the Christian Fellowship in Brisbane was endeavouring to make changes and also recognise past errors and sins. There were admissions from the pulpit, elders and in private that they had been on the wrong track and needed amend...
