Since joining a cult usually involves a lifetime commitment that most cult members couldn't possibly grasp at the onset of their "spiritual journey", we would like to help simplify the decision making process by saving you years of sorrow and regret. If we could give you one sliver of advice that would enhance your future, it would be to stay as far away from the ntcc as you possibly can. Do not attend this cult. We do not recommend joining any cult; but if you must join a cult, steer clear of the ntcc. Of course this solution is too simple; and people often need to learn things the hard way. That's how it was for most of the eX-members of the ntcc. So let's get started.
Being a Cult Member of the ntcc is like being in an abusive relationship. At first it all seems too good to be true. They love you; they feed you; they make you feel special, wanted and important. Once you become addicted to this kind of attention, the abuse begins. Under the guise of being a loving shepherd that is concerned for your eternal well being, a hireling is about to manipulate your life. In short, you are about to be punked. You are setting yourself up to become a product of an organization that exists to make a very few select individuals filthy rich. When you fully commit yourself to the ntcc leadership, you are being manipulated into giving complete access to your personal life to an individual whose main purpose is to exploit you for financial gain that makes the top leaders of ntcc filthy rich. It's that simple. They want your money. They don't care about you, your family, your friends or anything else. Most people don't see or understand what they are getting into when they join the ntcc.
Look for Red Flags!!!!!!
The very best way to distinguish a Christian Church from a cult is to compare it to the gospel of Mathew, Mark, Luke and John which are the written accounts of the life of Jesus.
Red Flag #1 - MONEY GRUBBING - Does the cult revolve around money? Did Jesus ask for or demand money from His disciples every time they gathered? Did Jesus ever say that if you love me you will pay your tithes to me? Did Jesus ever tell his followers that they were God robbers if they didn't give Him 10%? This is a huge red flag! The ntcc teaches contrary to the teachings of Christ; that if you do not pay tithes and give in offerings hell will be your home. In the ntcc money is required in every get-together. Your money is required; and without it, you cannot and will not be a Christian in the ntcc. They don't want your abilities, your talent, your friendship or your company unless you first give them your money. One of the very first requirements and the highest priority of your Christian life is to pay tithes and give in offerings in every ntcc public gathering or assembly. If you refuse to do this, we guarantee you that you will not be "loved" by that bunch.
Red Flag #2 - DRESS CODE - Does the cult tout standards of dress that seem outlandish or outdated and have little or no biblical basis? Can you find an account of Jesus telling folks that they must dress a certain way if they want to go to heaven? Jesus warned people to beware of the Scribes and Pharisees who love to wear long robes, and love to be called Rabbi. In the ntcc they do the exact same thing. They love to impose their standards of dress on people and to be called Pastor. If you are a woman and you went to an ntcc conference in pants with makeup or jewelry, would you be welcome? If you were a man would you be welcome if you showed up to bible school wearing shorts and a t-shirt, sporting a mustache or a beard? Now ask yourself if the same people would be turned away by Jesus? It doesn't take a Genius to figure out that something is wrong in the ntcc.
Red Flag #3 - CONTROLLING RULES - Does the cult make up a bunch of abnormal rules that govern your life but have no biblical significance? Do they tell you that you have to ask permission to ride in a car with someone else? Did Jesus ever tell anyone that they had to ask Him permission to ride on a donkey with someone else? Seem a little ridiculous? We think so. Do they tell you whom you can talk to? Do they tell you whom you can have over for dinner? Do they tell you whom you can let your children have as guests at their birthday parties? Do they enforce curfews? Do they tell you that if you miss one of their meetings that you must not love God or want to be around God's people? These are huge warnings. The ntcc leaders who make and enforce these rules claim to be Christians; but did Jesus require any of the people that he loved to behave like this? To be a Christian is to be Christ-like. Is it Christ-like to rail on a young woman because she has a bow in her hair, or to tell a woman that she is going to hell for working a job? Is it Christ-like to condemn someone for going to a different church? Did Jesus ever tell one group of believers that they couldn't hang around other believers? Is it Christ-like to tell people whom they can date or whom they can marry? Is it Christ-like to tell a person that they can't eat french fries with their fingers? This is a no-brainer folks. All you need is a little bit of common sense; and you can avoid a whole bunch of heartache.
Red Flag #4 - HYPOCRISY / DOUBLE STANDARDS - Do the cult leaders have a problem with following their own rules? To make this even more simple let's just ask the question, "Is your cult leader a hypocrite?" Do they break their own rules? Do they bind heavy burdens upon folks which they themselves are not willing to move with their fingers? Do they tell you that you must get permission to talk to a woman but they seem a little over friendly with the female members in their own congregations? We're saying this because adultery is a huge problem in the ntcc. Divorce on demand is a huge problem in the ntcc. They make these rules; because they are the ones that have problems in these areas. Just look at their history. Did Jesus stop Mary from pouring ointment on his feet and washing them with her tears and drying them with her hair because He was afraid that it would lead to lust and fornication? If you are righteous you don't live in fear when someone else has a problem. Does your cult leader spend your tithe money to send his child to a private school and allow him to play football and dress in lascivious football pants when you were required to get a letter from your pastor exempting your child from gym class because the required standard of dress for physical education was considered to be inappropriate apparel for Christians in your cult? Did Jesus enforce any of this stupid nonsense upon His followers?
The Servicemen's homes are also mini cult compounds that have very strict rules. Ask yourself before signing up:
- What am I getting myself into?
- Will the Servicemen's home interfere with my military career? Will I be pressured to terminate my military service to become a lifelong member of this cult?
- How many of the cult members that were reached in these homes stayed in the military long enough to retire?
A normal person will read this and say, "You would have to be a real dummy and a complete moron to join a cult like this". And that person would be right; and yet hundreds if not thousands of people sign up to be members of the ntcc every year. Please look at the big picture and steer clear of this cult for your own good. Don't take our word for it if you don't want to; but read the thousands of online testimonies that have been shared by people that learned the hard way. It's really not a hard decision. Keep a sharp lookout for the red flags so that you don't fall into the trap that others have. Now you have all the information that you need and are no longer a dummy unless you choose to be one. If you choose to join the ntcc after everything you have read here, then we're afraid you are beyond our help; and you will have to learn the ntcc lesson the hard way as we did, and as did all of the other ntcc dummies that came before you.
