Brisbane Christian Fellowship: The Big Bluff

Many of us ex-XCFers have noticed how nervous, cagey and guarded our overlords were at, eg, MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship) & Brisbane Christian Fellowship (BCF). Both when they were trampling us and when they were covering it up (or kicking us out). It’s because the whole thing was a big bluff. How much could BrisbaneContinue reading “Brisbane Christian Fellowship: The Big Bluff”

To Vic Hall, leader of BCF

Dear Vic, Of course, none of you at BCF (Brisbane Christian Fellowship) or MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship) read or reply to my emails any more. Well, none of of you ever actually replied to my emails because you refuse to go on the record on anything – and for an utterly corrupted reason. I justContinue reading “To Vic Hall, leader of BCF”

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 & 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)”

How hurtful was it?

Some of you must be thinking how silly this all is. Well, it isn’t. We were taught, at MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship), gradually, like lobsters boiling alive, that we had to give up all prerogatives. Anything that could be an idol. Of course we all immediately assumed it was the very thing we loved. SessionContinue reading “How hurtful was it?”

We lived a life of non-stop judgment

Scripture tells us not to judge each other (Matt 7:1, Rom 14:3, I Cor 4:3). But at MCF we lived a life of being judged about everything. There was no grey. There was no letting us find out ourselves through prayer and circumstance. We were told. Scripture tells us not to concern ourselves – orContinue reading “We lived a life of non-stop judgment”
