MCF congregants, you act as if MCF is right irrespective of anything

The saddest thing about our friends we have left behind at MCF (Melbourne Christian Fellowship) and BCF (Brisbane Christian Fellowship) is that, almost without exception, they act as if: MCF is right no matter what evidence is given MCF’s teachings are so important that the ends justify the means Even if you agree with us,Continue reading “MCF congregants, you act as if MCF is right irrespective of anything”

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”

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 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)”

Charles’ 2nd Vision

In 2012, my Dad, Charles had an unexpected vision of the deception the elders were under. But this week, in October 2019, after I told him about my (this) blog, he had a 2nd relevant vision that night, for the first time since 2012. In his vision this week he saw himself in a stadium,Continue reading “Charles’ 2nd Vision”

The cult of MCF: Part I (pre-1992)

There was always something cultish about MCF. For us plebs inside we rationalized it in two or three ways: (1) about the commitment level: as simply ‘taking a stand’ for Christ, or about the stories of control, shunning or womanizing, (2) we didn’t believe the stories or (3) just accepted that nothing’s perfect. But pre-1992,Continue reading “The cult of MCF: Part I (pre-1992)”
