MCF was like pointless games in a compassion-less Colosseum

Although life at MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship) with your guru elder was like being thrown to the lions, that’s not what I mean. I’m talking about life in general at MCF. The elders and up-coming leaders all could talk this lingo they had learned from Vic Hall’s Biblically-unsound books. We used it too, but notContinue reading “MCF was like pointless games in a compassion-less Colosseum”

The timeline of MCF’s destruction of my life (Part VI)

Last time I covered the beginnings of my exposure to MCF of what they had done to me. Next, after the perpetrators of the abuse largely made ‘non-apology’ apologies and Gary Worth made zero apologies, I took it to the full MCF presbytery which consisted of : Gary WorthBob StevensRichie Kaa (Jnr)Matt Bellingham Bob StevensContinue reading “The timeline of MCF’s destruction of my life (Part VI)”

The timeline of MCF’s destruction of my life (Part V)

Yesterday I covered the majority of the systematic and sustained psychological abuse over a 20 year period committed by my local leaders David Bonham and his side-kicks, against me, together with the MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship) presbytery because senior presbytery member Laurie Holland, knew what was going on. Today, I’ll describe our realization tha twe’dContinue reading “The timeline of MCF’s destruction of my life (Part V)”

The timeline of MCF’s destruction of my life (Part IV)

Last time we were up to the Big Bang of 1988, the falling of two top leaders from MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship) and the calm between the storms of 1988-1992 where Vic Hall was gradually taking over from Brisbane Christian Fellowship (BCF). Now we enter the phases of 1992-1996 and 1996-2016 where Vic Hall graduallyContinue reading “The timeline of MCF’s destruction of my life (Part IV)”

The timeline of MCF’s destruction of my life (Part III)

Following on from my first three years at MCF, where I experienced both the good and bad of the move, we then experienced the Big Bang of 1988 (here’s my earlier account). This was the discovery that two senior leaders of MCF, including the founder Ray Jackson Snr, were found to be in immorality, oneContinue reading “The timeline of MCF’s destruction of my life (Part III)”

The timeline of MCF’s destruction of my life (Part II)

After around three good years (see Part I), in 1987, I started realizing that MCF had some genuine semi-cultish ways: 1. The elders seemed aloof. And we almost worshiped them, especially the top dogs. But wasn’t it supposed to be a Priesthood of All Believers? And a truly multiple eldership without top dogs? 2. MyContinue reading “The timeline of MCF’s destruction of my life (Part II)”

The timeline of MCF’s destruction & mean-spirited waste of my life (Part I)

Background MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship), for me, started out as a breath of fresh air. I hadn’t heard about the pre-1992 cultish behaviors. And of course, had no idea what was going to hit us post-1992. I actually loved the Lutheran Church I attended, and Its congregation. But there was absolutely no doubt that thatContinue reading “The timeline of MCF’s destruction & mean-spirited waste of my life (Part I)”

The cult of ‘Guru Headship’ was dangerous nonsense

The way of ‘guru headship’, as taught at Melbourne Christian Fellowship, and its Brisbane counterpart, apart from being non-Biblical, was horrifically presumptuous and lazy. And dangerous. And, Biblically, complete nonsense. But here I’ll focus on how, in the end, it was a con-job. It put elders between man and Christ as an actual required-for-salvation doctrinalContinue reading “The cult of ‘Guru Headship’ was dangerous nonsense”

MCF takes the Fifth

Whenever MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship) is accused it takes the Christian equivalent of the (US) ‘Fifth’ (Amendment), the vow of silence. Is that a Christian response? They would claim that they are shutting their mouths as Christ did at His trial. There’s several things really wrong with this. Firstly, MCF is not Christ. How doContinue reading “MCF takes the Fifth”

The Curse of the Golden Lampstand (Part III)

Excuse my juvenile ‘Indiana Jones’-like blog page title but today I’ll conclude my 3-part series on the three travelling teachers that brought to us, at MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship) in the 1992-2016 period, the cultish BCF (Brisbane Christian Fellowship ) word and then all three men . . mysteriously . . disappeared, in many cases/locations,Continue reading “The Curse of the Golden Lampstand (Part III)”
