When Jesus walked the earth the focus wasn't on the do's and the don'ts but on Glorifying His Father in heaven, by helping the afflicted. The majority of His wrath was directed against the religious leaders of the time who went around preaching the do's and the don'ts. The rest of what Jesus did was surrounded by Love and were works of faith like healing the sick, raising the dead and feeding the multitudes, etc...
Jesus said, "If I be lifted up, I will draw all men to me". He didn't say if we invite 1000 people out to church every week, or wear white shirts and wing tips all the time, or pay our tithe and give in offerings, or live a holiness lifestyle, or rest on Sunday, or any other works doctrine that you preach. While there is a place for these things, they are not supposed to be the focus of the church.
NTCC has their priorities mixed up. There are so many true stories of missionaries and pastors of the NTCC that have struggled and suffered and done without and sacrificed to the point of not eating right and not being able to provide basic food, shelter and clothing for their families while the fat cats in Washington are living large and have every comfort and amenity imaginable. Is this love?

I talked to others from NTCC on the phone and through e-mail correspondence. Many say that speaking out against the NTCC is nonproductive and while they are willing to speak against the NTCC over the phone or in private, they seem very hesitant about getting involved with reading this blog or others like it. My stand is a whole lot different. NTCC is a Cult. They strain at a gnat and swallow a camel. They require way more out of their members then they themselves are willing to give. Hypocrisy does not get any more hypocritical than this.
These are the ones that Jesus preached against. The damage that they are causing in people's hearts and lives is unbelievable. There are many people in and out of NTCC that feel hopelessly lost and that there is no way out. They have been used, lied to, preached at, emotionally and spiritually abused, separated from loved ones including spouses and children. If a wife disagrees with the NTCC they are scolded publicly and scorned by the so called "man of God" and eventually ran off while the husband is praised for surviving the ordeal. But don't let your guard down because even though you have sacrificed your family, your turn to be kicked to the curb is coming. When you have been totally used up and can't pray or feel God any more and are at your lowest point in life, you will also be discarded. You have outlived your usefulness.
As for me and my house, we will preach love. It's too late for NTCC to tell me that they are the only true church; that they preach the only true Gospel; that any time you say anything against them you are blaspheming God's Church. I got set free after years of condemnation experienced from leaving the cult. God redeemed me and delivered me from all of the things that NTCC used to say you can and cannot do; but what is greater is that God placed his love in my heart; and it is a love that surpasses all understanding and transcends all outward works.
While my words may sound harsh, it is necessary because people are suffering needlessly in the NTCC. We are now in the information age; and even though this is considered the "sinnernet", somebody might see this and wake up. I'm not making fun of anyone; because I was once asleep and oblivious to the deception of NTCC. If you would take a close, close look at what they are doing, you would see something isn't right. I felt it while I was a member but refused to look at it. There IS life after NTCC. God has not forsaken you. Let God's love speak louder than man's preaching.
