The Blind Side

Tonight I watched a movie called "The Blind Side".  This movie was not necessarily a Christian movie; but it was based on a true story of a family in Memphis, TN that has Christian values.  The Tuohys [pronounced two-hees] are a wealthy white family who took in a homeless black kid and made him a part of their family.  While the family was driving home, they saw this very large black kid walking in the cold rain and offered him a ride.  Leigh Anne Tuohy, who was played by Sandra Bullock in an Oscar winning performance, knew that this young man did not have a place to stay; so she opened her home to him.  The Tuohys ended up adopting Michael Oher [pronounced oar] and payed a tutor to help him study so he could be eligible for a football scholarship to college.  He ended up earning a full ride to Ole Miss,  and played Left Tackle on their football team.  His position required him to protect the blind side of the Quarterback.  Michael Oher was later picked in the first round of the NFL draft and has been playing for the Baltimore Ravens ever since.  Sandra Bullock, who remains in contact with the Tuohy family and lives in New Orleans, attended Superbowl XLVII with the Tuohy family as the Ravens beat the 49'rs 34 to 31 and Micheal Oher won his first Superbowl.  Throughout the playoffs and Superbowl, Joe Flacco, the Ravens' quarterback, was well protected by Oher and his teammates, throwing for 11 touchdown passes and zero interceptions.

Micheal Oher Celebrating
 2013 Victory in Superbowl
XLVII (47) With His Family
Lee Anne Tuohy has started the Making It Happen Foundation and she also stars in a new reality show with her daughter Collins called "Family Addition".  The Tuohy family has dedicated a large part of their life and finances to helping under-privileged children find families that will love and care for them and give them a better chance in life to reach their potential rather than falling through the cracks of society.  The Tuohys consider this cause to be God-driven; and they believe that there are many kids out there who are like Michael Oher, who can live their dreams if  they are given the chance.  The Tuohy family is wealthy; and they choose to use their wealth to help orphans and fatherless children find homes.  They are demonstrating Pure Religion.

James 1:27  "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."

Davis somehow found a half Filipino/half American girl and adopted her.  She lived a life of privilege but there is a huge difference in the direction that Davis took.  He never encouraged people to have or adopt kids but discouraged many potential parents from having a family by saying, "Children hinder the work of God" and pointing at women that were pregnant during church services while publicly condemning them for destroying their husbands ministries.  Having children in the ntcc was condemned as an intentional hindrance to the work of God.  Consequently many ministers got their tubes snipped so that they wouldn't make the "mistake" of "ruining their ministries" by having children.  Davis never encouraged anyone to adopt a child or even to give to the fatherless and orphans of this world.

Many people believe that Tanya Kekel was the result of an inappropriate relationship that Davis had while in the Philippines.  This would explain the callousness that Davis exhibits towards children.  It also would explain why Davis would allow a grown adult in his twenties, (Mike Kekel), that was nearly a decade older than davis' underage daughter to feel her up and brag about it in front of multiple witnesses, and allow that same perv to 'marry' her and become the heir apparent of the cult.  Phil Kinson was present during Kekel's bragging about groping Tanya; and he has never denied this, but also admitted to  groping underage Debbie Johnson, who is seven years younger than feel-her-up Phil.  This is the culture of the ntcc - disregarding both law and moral standards, devaluing women and children, and hiding and promoting sexual misconduct.  If you think otherwise, or that adopting or helping the orphan has ever been encouraged, then you are hoodwinked.

1 John 3:17  "But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in Him?"

Davis and Kekel have this world's good and they have seen their brethren in need, but they have shut their bowels of compassion, (which were probably never opened), and they have oppressed those they call their brethren.  Read More.  How much more have they turned their back on the orphan, the fatherless, the widow and the stranger? They live in expensive mansions bought and paid for by the members of their cult; and they have gates that keep everyone away from those mansions.  Their closest and most dedicated ministers all live in houses that surround their castles; but they have gates inside of gates to keep their brethren off of their estates.   While they are virtually inaccessible to the ones that love them and adorn them with every thing their hearts desire, there is no charity or love flowing back to the brethren.  While you have sacrificed your own personal goals and dreams to be in the ministry, you are expected to "be a leader", get a job, rent a building, fill it with people, convince them to pay tithe and send all the proceeds to Graham.  If you 'fail', don't ask Davis for any money.  Lift yourself up by your own bootstraps.  Encourage yourself in the Lord, but don't expect anything helpful.  Davis might send Johnson or Ashmore to your church to jack you up, or maybe even fly out there at your expense and jack you up himself.

Many of the ntcc rules were broken in this movie.  The Tuohy family stopped their car and picked up a large black man while it was raining and dark.  Davis would have passed by a known brother on the other side of the street like the priest and the Levite who were not good Samaritans as found in Luke 10:30-36.  In fact, Davis has boasted:

"When you are 65 [years old] and standing in the soup line, I'm going to drive by you in my Cadillac and point my finger at you and laugh!" ntcc founder Rodger Wilson Davis' idea of Christian Charity.

 - a scene from "The Blindside"

The Tuohys opened their house to a stranger.
Davis has taught against showing any kindness or favor to the homeless or poor, stating:

  • "We don't do that."
  • "Don't give your money to the poor."
  • "They are poor because they want to be [poor]."
  • "Don't give your money to the homeless."
  •  -- ntcc Founder Rodger Wilson Davis' doctrine once again contradicts God's Word.  

Davis doesn't even want the poor or homeless in church.  He has stated:

"You can't build a church with homeless or poor people." - ntcc President de facto Rodger Wilson Davis.

How many homeless or poor folks do you think Davis has invited into his house?  People have stood at his gate, and been turned away at his intercom system only to be told to bring their problems up with Olson or Kekel.  Davis doesn't even want his ministers or bible school students at his house, much less the homeless, orphan or stranger.  They might stain the carpet.  Ahem.  [Listen to the Todd Agnew video, "My Jesus", embedded at the bottom of this post.]

Actual Tuohy Family Portrait

The Tuohy family legally adopted Michael Oher into their family and showed him love that was absent from his life.  Davis has been known to split up families and drive wedges between husbands and wives, destroying their families; encouraging the family members that are loyal to him to dump their spouse and in some cases their own kids for the sole purpose of ridding his cult of anyone that he deems to oppose him and his unethical totalitarian approach as a hireling and cult leader.

Michael Oher alone with Leigh Anne Tuohy in a Scene from the "Blind Side"

Davis teaches against a man being alone with a woman.  Men were discouraged from dating without a chaperone.  In the ntcc people are discouraged from normal functional relationships with the opposite sex.  Yet homosexuals seem to prosper.  Remember the 'gay' bathhouses Davis set up at the campground?  There men were required to shower naked in front of other men.  The toilets had no partitions between them.  How sick is that?  It was worse for the women.  Imagine trying to change a tampon or feminine napkin in front of other women with no privacy.  That is demeaning.  And young girls were expected to strip and shower in the same bathhouse as the women.  They called that holiness?  But in church the men do not even sit on the same side of the building as the women.  It's ridiculous!  And it all  stems from Davis' twisted inability to control his own lust.  In ntcc it is taught that men and women cannot be trusted to be alone with one another unless they are married.  Obviously, Davis has a problem with this; because it is and has been a big problem in his own life.  Rather than allowing folks to interact with each other in a normal way, he imposes his own fears upon all of his followers.  He knows that if he were alone with a girl, [and we mean young girl] that he would commit adultery, so he destroys healthy possible relationships and drives wedges between men and women to keep them from doing the unthinkable; which is really what he would do, if given the opportunity.  In fact he has committed the unthinkable.

Davis taught his cult members that if they were in a bed with a member of the opposite sex, and they didn't commit adultery or fornication, then they must be  homosexual.   This is another teaching that stems from real life experiences of Davis not being able to control his own sexual urges and imposing rules on all of his cult members assuming that they, like he, could not control themselves.

The Blind Side shows a normal family interacting with a 17 year old male in a loving and caring way.  This would be forbidden in the ntcc.  This is precisely why there are so many problems with divorce on demand, adultery, fornication, sexual abuse and child abuse in the ntcc.  The more you treat people like they are sexually deviant the more problems you will create.  Jesus allowed Mary Magdalene to anoint his feet with oil and wipe them with the hair on her head.  Davis is a lot like Judas Iscariot who found fault with Mary, not because he cared  but because he had sin in his heart:

John 12:3-6  "Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's [son], which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein."

Davis is a fault finder.  He blames rape victims, saying they dressed provocatively, rather than the sexually deviant criminal for committing the hideous act.  He blames women for getting pregnant and destroying their husbands'  ministries rather than the preacher who is equally responsible for getting his own wife pregnant; which, by the way, is not, as davis claims, a sin, but rather a blessing.  He blames women for many of the men's failures in the ntcc.  He is an abuser himself; so it's in his personality to teach his followers to mistreat their wives and blame them when things go wrong.  I feel sorry for women in the ntcc.  They have it much worse than the men do; and the men have it pretty bad.  That's how it is in this abusive cult called ntcc.  Don't think that it's ever going to get any better.  They may make cosmetic changes to hide who they really are; but the same rotten corpse remains under the make-up.

If you are a minister, bible school student or a church member in the ntcc, there is nobody that's protecting your blind side.  You are in the middle of a multi-million dollar scam; and you don't even know it.  Davis, Kekel and the rest of their cronies have made a living off of you and people just like you.  While you are focused on trying to make it into heaven, you are being manipulated by some of the biggest frauds and religious hucksters and con-artists ever to have stepped behind and hidden behind a pulpit.  They sought you out because of your good nature and your willingness to show blind loyalty to them without questioning their motives.   They stripped you of all dignity, self respect and hope of living a normal Christian life.  While they hooked up a financial vacuum cleaner to suck your money out of your wallet and bank accounts they also attacked you from the blind side by hooking up a spiritual vacuum cleaner to suck the life out of you.   Nobody has your back and nobody in the organization will warn you of the dangerous road you are going down.

We are warning you.  If you disagree with ntcc they will use their pulpit and their positions to tear you down.  If you get out of line they will spiritually beat you back into submission; and if you ever 'cross' them, you will find yourself out on the street like everyone else.  Try questioning them on anything that they are doing that is questionable, and see how they receive it.  Try asking Davis or Kekel where they got the money to purchase their mansions and all of the other nice expensive things they have, and see how they react.  They won't react like Christians.  They will say, "The X-ers are just jealous of the man of Gawd".  Do you really think that we are jealous because we are no longer financing the mansions, Cadillacs, Mercedes, BMWs, recreational vehicles, diamond pinky rings, Rolex watches, fine home furnishings, rifle collections, musical instrument collections, and all expense paid vacations for these sick people?  Sorry, we are not jealous; but we do feel sorry for you and would like to help you find your way out of a very nasty mess.  It's the Christian thing to do.

Try The Spirits Whether They Are Of God

1John 4:1-3 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

We are commanded, or for those of you familiar with the military, ordered:
  •  to "believe not every spirit"
  •  to "try" [test/prove] "the spirits whether they are of God"
Please take a minute to click into the words "false prophets" and read the verses that define and describe them.

Now please consider this scripture:

Jer 14:14  Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.

In a previous blog post we discussed how davis claimed to have a vision from God; but it was proven to be false:  Read more.   So, if you've read these things, you should know that davis is a false prophet. He is also the head of the ntcc.  If not, why does he live in the ntcc's largest mansion on their Bonco property?  Why do his followers call him pastor and obey his every word?

John exhorts the church to beware of false prophets.  So how do you know if they are false prophets?  That's the million dollar question; but it's really not as difficult as it may seem.  John said "try the spirits whether they are of God".  It's not the words they say or even the deeds they do.  Jesus spoke of people who cast out devils in His name, yet He never knew them.  They were the ones who work iniquity and had to depart from Him:

Mat 7:21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

If works alone are not a test to see who knows God, how can we tell who is on the Lord's side?  It's the spirit that drives them or is behind what is said and done that deserves a closer look.

 If you are a Christian, you have a responsibility to yourself and those you love, as well as to God, to make sure that the spirit of the person that is leading you on your Christian walk is being led by the Spirit of God.

Beloved, beleive not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God.

Do you have a right to ask pointed questions to the people that you are entrusting  with your soul?  I would say that not only is it your right to ask questions; but it is your responsibility to ask questions and expect direct answers.  The ntcc ministers are going to require a lot out of you as Christians.  If you attend their churches they are going to expect you to surrender more than 10% or your income.  Tithe is not enough.  If you want to know what spirit they are of, try just paying your tithe and don't give in any offerings.  Or better yet stop giving your money to them; and you will quickly find out what kind of spirit they have.

1Jo 4:7   Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

1Jo 4:8  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

1Jo 4:21  And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

1Jo 3:14  We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren.  He that loveth not [his] brother abideth in death.

Find out if their love is real.  Try their spirits.  If you stop paying for your salvation, your tithe-receiving hireling will show his true colors and lose the victory at the same time.  You want to see an ntcc preacher really freak out?  Get a few of the brethren together and stop paying your Christian taxes to them.  Stop allowing them to make merchandise out of you and your brethren.  Or just tell the false prophet that you have studied the scriptures and you and your brothers and sisters are only going to give cheerfully from now on as God lays it on your heart.

Or if you are a minister and you are tired of supporting the lavish lifestyles of the unentitled fat cats in Graham, tell your people that you have decided to start honoring God's word by giving to the poor, the fatherless, the stranger, the widow.   Tell them that you are no longer going to send your congregation's money to the hypocrites in Graham; but you are going to distribute it to that elderly sister in the congregation who is a widow, or the stranger, or the mother with three fatherless children. Tell them you are no longer going to force them to pay tithe to money-grubbers in Graham, WA.

If you do, and ntcc threatens to take your minister's license, you'll be better off.  Jesus never issued paper credentials to His disciples.  Jesus never incorporated an organization financed by a bunch of brainwashed suckers.  Jesus never expected anyone to feed Him; instead He fed the multitudes.  And He trained His disciples to do the same.  Being a Christian gives you the ability to be cool and Generous while distributing to the necessity of the saints, not to the greedy lust of the hirelings.

 Don't let their peculiar clothing and their fake love deceive
 you! Just as beauty is only skin deep, some people in ntcc
 have a form of holiness or godliness that is a costume or
 outer shell; but they deny the power and the love of God.

Mat 7:15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

2Ti 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Look at those commandments again.  Those are instructions on what to do, how to live:  Beware.  Don't believe every spirit!  Don't run to them to wipe your nose!  From such turn away.  If they aren't right, you won't change them.  They are deceivers.  God said to turn away from them.

Read your bibles people.  Find out if the doctrine that you are living under is of God.  If they are adding to it or taking away from it, than you are being taught false doctrine and your church leader is a false prophet.  If your ntcc hireling that calls himself a pastor tells you that the TV is evil and you will die and go to hell for watching it, only to later change his mind and say that TV is now okay as long as you watch only certain programming (like his family has been doing all along;), then that hypocrite hireling has ulterior (control)  motives; and you can rest assured that those motives are related to M-O-N-E-Y!!!!!  If he controls you, he gets what he wants:  Your income.

Start paying more attention to what your bible says, then what your control freak hireling says.  Get two clickers.  You know, the little things you press and each time you push the button it counts up, one, two, three.  Label one clicker "Pastor" and one "Jesus".  Then keep an honest count:  For each time you ask yourself "What does Pastor say / want / think?" click the "Pastor" counter.  Then for each time you ask yourself, "What does Jesus say / want / teach?", click the Jesus counter.  We think you will be surprised by the results!

Gal 1:10  For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

The truth is, the organization's main focus is teaching you what they want you to do.  They really don't want you to follow Jesus and His will for your life.  They say they do; but just try praying about something and going to your pastor and announcing what God lays on your heart:  "Pastor, I prayed about it, and God wants me to give my tithe money to help the orphans."  What do you think he will say? "That's great Brother!" or "We [sic-ntcc] really don't do that.  That's not what tithe is for.  See our doctrinal statement.  Tithe is not for charity."  "But," you say, "Pastor, the bible says tithe is for the fatherless."  Confronted with the truth, he will flip out:  "That's not what we do!"  Whom will you please?  Will you be a manpleaser? Or are you a servant of Christ?  You can't be both.  See Gal 1:10 again.

On another note:  If the man leading you tells you that you can't talk to a sister, or pursue a relationship without his permission, try his spirit and see whether it is of God.  If he plows your fields and gets all red-faced and indignant with you, you will know that he is a false prophet, that he lives his greedy life for money and numbers and the approval of his cult leaders.  We are not advocating that you commit any sins or stop living for God; but that you should use the brain that God has given you and stop allowing the ntcc to manipulate your lives.  Try the spirits whether they are of God.

I don't care how loud they preach or how many people snot and blow at the altar; if the spirit behind the man is not of God, then stop following him.  Compare that dude to Jesus; and if he does things that contradict God's word, don't allow him to twist any more scriptures.  Call him on it and see what spirit he has.  If he is of God, he will humble himself and align his actions with the Word of God and pattern  shown by Christ.  If he is a hireling he will blow up and start falsely accusing you and the brethren of false things while reverting back to all the false teachings of the cult you're in.  Check out this video:

Faulty Doctrine by Timothy Brindle

2Ti 3:12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

Knowing these things, you should realize that you should not believe davis or those who imitate him.  They are false prophets.  Do you think God wants you to follow them?  Look at what the bible says about where they will end up:

Rev 22:15  For without [are] dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

That's pretty serious.  Please remember, beloved, these are commandments.  But God gives a promise, a reward, for those who keep His commandments:

Rev 22:14  Blessed [are] they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

I like this picture called the
Tree of Life;  but to me, the
Cross is the True Tree of Life

 receive you unto myself;
 that where I am, [there]
 ye may be also.

Doctrinal Statement XV - Tithes in Your NTCC

Another ntcc minister gets his
'green' off your tithe dollars!

While reading the ntcc's doctrinal statement we find that the very last statement is labeled XV - Tithes    This is what it states word for word:

We recognize the scriptural duty of all people, as well as ministers, to pay tithes unto the Lord (Hebrews 7:8).  Tithes should be used for the support of the active ministry and for the propagation of the Gospel and work of the Lord, and are not to be given to charity or used for other purposes.  (Malachi 3:7-11) (Hebrews 7:2) (1 Corinthians 9:7-11; 16:2)

This one paragraph sums up the ntcc in a nutshell.  It openly displays the hypocrisy of the ntcc leadership, their ability to twist scriptures and never be questioned; and it shows that they are liars and con-artists.  How many people have read this doctrinal statement and never looked up or studied the scriptures? Shame on you, ntcc-ers for going with the flow and believing this hogwash.

Heb 7:8 "And here men that die receive tithes, but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth."

Does this scripture in any way imply that God requires men in the New Testament to receive tithes?  This passage refers to Melchisedec receiving tithes of Abraham; (Which were never demanded or asked for), but given freely.  Now the ntcc has always preached that because Abraham paid tithes before the law, this somehow means that tithe is carried over into the New Testament.  Abraham also gave blood sacrifices, but why is it that this sacrament wasn't carried over into the New Testament?  The ntcc translates "men that die" receiving tithes to mean that they are commanded to receive tithes?  Why would Jesus, Paul and the apostles be so specific about sins, and be so vague about paying tithes?  Why is it that the New Testament never listed "NOT PAYING TITHE" as a sin; but the ntcc preaches that if you don't pay tithe you will go to hell?  It's not a mystery or a hidden secret.  The author of Hebrews went on to say in Heb 7:18 "For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof."  The ntcc leaders know this and they purposely have twisted the scripture to become rich.  We all know that the law was done away with or fulfilled by the sacrifice of the Son of God.

The ntcc doctrinal statement says: "We recognize the scriptural duty of all people, as well as ministers, to pay tithes unto the Lord."

Will somebody please show us where the New Testament says that our scriptural duty is to pay tithe?  And to whom do Davis and Kekel pay tithe?  While you are at it, can you show us anywhere in the bible where tithe is defined as 10% cash on the barrel head before Uncle Sam gets his? There are hundreds of scriptures that speak of tithe in both Testaments of the Bible.  I have a challenge for any of you ntcc-ers out there.  Think for yourselves just this one time.  Study this out for yourselves.  Don't ask your Pastor to explain it to you.  You preachers that have dedicated decades of your lives to the ministry, stop towing the company line and think for yourselves just this once.

"Bless The Man Of Gawd" = "It Is Corban, That is to say, a gift.":

When tithe was discussed under the law it is for the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow.  Why does ntcc try to claim a Levitical right while forsaking the stranger, the fatherless, and the widows to fend for themselves?  The ntcc's top leaders are just like the hypocrites Jesus denounced as recorded in the gospel of Mark, chapter 7, especially:

Mar 7:9  And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

Mar 7:10  For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:

Mar 7:11  But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, [It is] Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; [he shall be free].

Mar 7:12  And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;

Mar 7:13  Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

The ntcc hirelings are money-grubbers who teach that men should break the commandment of God to honor their parents - literally to give them money, just so that those hirelings can get their own grubby mittens on your money.

They are USING Christ to gain profit and making the word of God of none effect through tradition they deliver.  If tithe, as set up by God, was for the Levite AND the stranger AND the fatherless AND the widow, why does ntcc only teach about tithe being THEIR income, but neglect THE STRANGER, THE FATHERLESS  and THE WIDOW??? (Please take a moment to read the verses attached to those words by clicking the fatherless).  ntcc wants your cash, plain and simple.  You don't think so?  Well, just walk up to your ntcc 'pastor' hireling and announce that you are going to pay your tithe to an orphanage, to a refugee immigrant, or to your mom, a widow and watch them blow their stacks like Mt. Vesuvius erupting.  Or better yet, just obey God without announcing anything to the hirelings.  If they ask about your missing tithe money, just point them to this article.  :-)

Family First:
Did you know that as a Christian your first duty is not to fund the church?  Your first duty is to your family.  Look at what God says:

1Ti 5:3  Honour widows that are widows indeed.

1Ti 5:4  But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.

The ntcc adds to the scripture and puts their money-grubbing hirelings first in line for your cash. But God says to honour widows, learn first to shew piety at home, requite parents, provide for your own, specially those of your own house.  If you don't God says you're worse than an infidel:

1Ti 5:8  But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

The ntcc's top leaders are no different than the hypocrites Jesus rebuked for calling their money-grubbing gifts "Corban", [or in ntcc-speak "blessing the man of Gawd"] when all they wanted was a profit off of the name of Christ!

Why is it that tithe is so important to the ntcc? Hmmn?   Is it really supposed to be emphasized in every church service?  Did you ever see Jesus demanding tithe each time He went to the synagogue or temple?  All accounts of tithe in the bible refer to agricultural gifts and the purpose of it was to support the Levitical Priesthood which had no inheritance of their own.  Now this has been covered many times on the blogs; and there has not been one ntcc-er that can justify preaching that people will go to hell if they don't pay their tithes.  So what are we to conclude?  What is the purpose in the ntcc for receiving tithes?  Let's continue.  This is what the ntcc doctrinal statement has to say about it:

Tithes should be used for the support of the active ministry and for the propagation of the Gospel and work of the Lord, and are not to be given to charity or used for other purposes.  (Malachi 3:7-11) (Hebrews 7:2) (1 Corinthians 9:7-11; 16:2)

 Oxen treading 'corn' or grain. 

Piled higher and deeper, the ntcc claims that the tithes "should be used" for the support of the active ministry and for the propagation of the Gospel.  How does living in million dollar mansions propagate the Gospel?  How does sending your son to an expensive private college-prep(atory) school propagate the Gospel?  How does driving around in a car that cost a quarter of a million dollars propagate the Gospel?  How is buying expensive and useless furniture to adorn the Kekels' mansion supporting the active ministry?  Even if God did require us to pay tithe, do you think that He would have us sacrifice what little money we make so that the rich hirelings in the ntcc could have every amenity imaginable while we are expected to live off of $40 worth of groceries per week?  This is absurd; and you ntcc-ers are naive and gullible and borderline mentally dysfunctional if you think this is what God's plan for your future involves.  The ntcc is a dying organization; and the only reason that they still exist is that they have compromised so many of the standards that they once used to run people off.  They are liars and swindlers, cheating you out of your money.  Let's look at the three remaining scriptures that the ntcc doctrinal statement has twisted and taken out of context.

Malachi 3:7-11  These are the verses that the ntcc leadership uses to classify people as "God robbers".  The prophet Malachi spoke of the children of Israel not living according to the law.  He spoke of a storehouse in which people would bring their tithes which were agricultural offerings to support the Levitical priesthood.  The ntcc would also like to have a "storehouse"; but they want it to be full of your dollar bills.  Their storehouse is a vault or an (offshore?) bank account from which they can write unlimited checks for whatever purpose they desire.  We were total idiots for listening to these religious hucksters.  In the grand scheme of things, God rebuked the people in the Old Testament very little for not paying tithe in total contrast to the ntcc; which requires their ministers to demand tithe and offering in every church service.  Wake up! ntcc's lust for tithe is only all about the money for them. It always has been, and always will be.

Hebrews 7:2 "To whom Abraham gave a tenth part of all"...   It's interesting how this scripture found its way into the ntcc's propaganda ... oops, I mean, 'doctrinal statement'.  They want to make sure you give a tenth of all.  The ntcc really only wants a tenth of all your money.  They don't want you to bring them any fruits or vegetables.  They don't want any Cattle as Abraham brought.  They want to buy themselves Cadillacs with cash only.  They want ONLY your money:  CASH ONLY.  That means No receipts and No paper trail.  Oh Boy!    "All Christians pay tithes and give in offerings."  is the standardized ntcc mantra; that is required to be said at least one time in every church service.  If a ntcc preacher does that, soon he will believe it; and his congregation will believe it; and everything will be just wonderful for the Graham, WA hypocrite phat cats  who get the private benefit from this so-called non-profit CORPORATION receiving its membership dues under the guise of 'religious offerings' and 'tithes'.  Okay, let's move on to the next scripture that the ntcc chose to justify their greediness.

1 Corinthians 9:7-11  It's alright to follow along in your bibles and verify these verses.  We know the ntcc doesn't want you to bring your bible to church; but it's safe to open it now.  We won't tell on you or blast you from the pulpit for being noble like the folks in Berea.  You won't get jacked up here; and we don't want to drag this out any longer than necessary.  We trust you to read it for yourselves.

ntcc hirelings want you to think
of them as oxen treading corn;
we say that's a lot of bull! ;-)

In this bible reading Paul mentions not to muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn.  Meaning that the ox is doing the work; and if you allow him to munch down on some of the corn, he might be a happier ox and will undoubtedly be strengthened to carry out his mission.  It doesn't say anything about taking up an offering for the ox so he can wear a Rolex watch or live in a million dollar barn.  Paul said in 1 Cor 9:11:  "If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?"  Has anyone found a hidden reference in this scripture that says anything about 10% Cash?  In the next verse (1 Cor 9:12, which was so conveniently left out of the ntcc doctrinal statement) we find that Paul, according to the ntcc, has condemned a lot of people to hell; because he states:  "Never the less, we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the Gospel of Christ."  And then he goes on to repeat this a second time in 1 Cor 9:15:  "But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, then that any man should make my glorying void."  Maybe Paul knew that riches corrupt men and wanted to leave an example of how ministers really should conduct themselves.

ntcc wants to claim apostolic
status; let them follow the
fine example of the Apostle
Paul who willingly put the

 muzzle on himself so as
not to hinder the gospel!

ntcc also claims:  Tithes ... are not to be given to charity or used for other purposes. That is in direct violation of God's command that tithes are to be used not just for the Levite, but also for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow.  But that isn't how ntcc, a self-proclaimed "business" and "organization" operates.  So I guess that if you were to give 10% of your income to a family whose house burnt down, you would be disobeying God [according to ntcc] who intended for you to give your money to someone like Kekel or Davis who is going to use it to buy themselves more expensive and useless things to add to their collections. Your tithe belongs to the fat ntcc Oxen that tread out the corn, and they really tread hard so keep them green backs coming in. Since they are laying prostrate before God, begging God for messages and sacrificing for you to hear the Gospel preached, you need to support them full time.

They are not going to get a job like Paul. Could you imagine Davis making tents? He has no problem being a burden to the work of the Lord and neither does Kekel. Could you imagine what kind of organization the ntcc could have been if they actually used tithe dollars to reach and help people? Do you think Davis and Kekel really do a lot of praying: "Oh God please burden their hearts to give more money so I can finance an upgrade to a more expensive mansion"! [Click to see pics of ntcc mansions]  I mean what could they possibly pray about: "Oh God, please forgive me for taking advantage of the brethren that are struggling to get by, and for demanding that they give us money so we can live high on the hog while they struggle to pay rent and buy groceries"! "You know I need that new rifle for my collection, or a new Car, oh God".

Let's look at the last twisted scripture used in the ntcc's indoctrinating statement.

1 Corinthians 16:2  "Upon the first day of the week, let everyone lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come."

Wow!  No gatherings?  No offerings in a church service?  Are you kidding me?  I can't recall one church service that I've ever been to where there have not been any offerings taken up.  Now what does the ntcc actually glean from this scripture?  They assume that because Paul said, "Upon the first day of the week" that this is the closest thing that they can find to use as a model for paying tithe; and it is also a scripture that is thrown around a lot to pay for the diesel fuel in their Recreational Vehicles prior to the rich snobbish Pharisees 'blessing' you with their presence to preach a revival or even one service.

It's Vacation Time Again, Honey!  So
Let's Fire Up Our Recreational Vehicle!
Those Dumb G.I.s are gonna waste
their money anyway; let's get some!

ntcc used to take up hundreds of dollars in offerings prior to the Board Member's arrival so that the BMs  wouldn't have to do the dirty work themselves.  All Davis had to do was mention this scripture during conference and any Board Member would immediately have an all expense paid vacation across the United States or overseas, compliments of, in davis' words "Dumb G.I.s who are only going to waste their money anyway".  Wisdom crieth without, she uttereth her voice in the streets!  How long will ye simple ones love simplicity?  Turn you at my reproof... taken from Proverbs 1:20-23

What will it take for you to learn?  Will you be a "dumb G.I."?  Or will you turn at wisdom's reproof?  How many decades of your life will you have to spend, trapped in a cult that only cares about how they can use and abuse you?  How many more thousands of dollars will you have to spend to 'earn' their love and respect?  [If you have to 'earn' it, that 'love' is not real love.  It is conditional and phony flattery, like davis telling you "I appreciate you."  That is so lame.  What does that really mean?  So long and thanks for all the cash, sucka?]  True love is a gift.  It cannot be earned.  [Please pay attention to the images of diamond [pinky] rings and plates of cash and the sports car in the following video.  It is so fitting, truly evocative of the ntcc system.]

Some of you have given tens of thousands of dollars; and there are some that have given hundreds of thousands of dollars to these con-artists.  Your money is not going towards souls.  The ntcc has decreased in size, compromised and consolidated to survive.  People have left by the scores, not because God could not keep them; but because they realized they were being used by a bunch of hypocrites.  But ntcc claims that God has changed His mind about the things that for years were their cornerstone doctrines; and now they can compromise or forsake what they used to teach as heaven or hell issues.  All of the sudden in ntcc it's okay to watch the devil-vision TV and to surf the sinner-net internet.  Why did God change His mind on these things?  The money supply was being choked off as people woke up and left the ntcc!

When will you wake up?  Can you see their false doctrine?  How about the ntcc disregarding the Word of God concerning divorce and remarriage?  In ntcc it's always been okay to divorce and remarry for reasons other than fornication or adultery.  But that is not God's will.  People, please read your bibles and rightly divide the Word of Truth.  Then ask yourself, do you fear man or God?  Will you disobey God to follow a man's false doctrines?  Or will you see that man as a false teacher, a false prophet, and be unafraid to leave him alone.  You won't change him.  But you don't have to partake of his sins.  Just leave them alone and follow God.  You will be glad you did!

You Just Might Be In A Cult

If you have to ask your pastor for "permission" to talk to a member of the opposite sex, you just might be in a cult.  Do you think RWD ever asked anyone for permission to talk to a woman?

If you have to go to the Walmart Electronics department to watch a football game because you are "not allowed" to have a "Devil Vision" in your house, you just might be in a cult.

If you tell your pastor that you are going to take your tithe money and use it to help orphans and homeless people and he says "Bless God - If you don't bring your tithe into the "Storehouse" of Gawd, Gawd will get his 10% from you!"  He might just be a cult leader; and you just might be in a cult.  Tell him, "Yes, God will get HIS 10%; but YOU'RE NOT going to get your greasy paws on it!"

If your cult has a brainwashing institution that is located on a gated cult compound adjacent to the million dollar mansions of the cult's founder and Son in Law, you just might be in a cult.

If your church leaders teach you to live one way and they disregard their own teachings and do the opposite, they are hypocrites; and you just might be in a cult.

If you have to take a shower after shopping for clothing because you feel stinky and slimy after searching through all the clearance racks at the local Kook store for your next outfit, while your "church" leader and his family go on all expense paid shopping sprees at Nordstrom's or Macy's compliments of the tithe paying suckers like you that are dumb enough to keep giving them money instead of using it to provide basic needs to your families, you just might be in a cult.

If the church founder's daughter buys Alpaca wool scarves that cost more money than the car you drive, you just might be in a cult.

If you are driving an "Oil Puking Junker" with "may pop tires" across the country to a "bible conference" and you get passed up by a sneering cult board member driving a $250,000 recreational vehicle that was purchased with money given by a bunch of brainwashed suckers just like you, you just might be in a cult.  

Could this be the next "love gift" your tithe dollars purchase as a "blessing" to the "Man of Gawd"?  Start saving those pennies!  
If your Pastor tells you that Gawd will bless you with a wife if you pay your tithe,  and then he jacks you up in front of the whole church for talking to a single female church member without his permission, you just might be in a cult.

If you and your family attend five church services each week, bible studies, soul winning, prayer meetings, mandatory fellowship and Sunday school, but your kids are struggling in school because they are forced to dress like dorks and they are too tired to do their homework and they fall asleep in class, and their backsides have lash marks all over them because your pastor has taught you that if you whip them enough, they will become good children, you just might be in a cult.

If you pay your tithes and give in offerings and live in the Servicemen's Home and pay your "Home Offering" and give in World missions, building funds, revival offerings and any other offering under the sun imaginable, and you get jacked up for not being a leader because you don't have enough money in your savings account, then you just might be in a cult.

If you are in the mission field living in a house that is smaller than the church founder's walk-in closet, in spite of the fact that millions and millions of dollars in offerings were given towards world missions over the years, you are being played for a fool and used like a woman's menstrual cloth; and you just might be in a cult.

If the standards of your church have changed to accommodate what was once called compromise, and there are good people that have been run off or forced to leave because they were treated like sinners for breaking man-made rules, but now your church leaders are "allowing" and participating in the same things and have never apologized or reached out to the people that they have hurt, you just might be in a cult.

If your church has revolving doors that encourage remarriage and divorce on demand and women are auctioned off as if they were a side of beef at the meat market,  and the church leaders are more interested in matchmaking than they are keeping people together, than you just might be in a cult.

Need a spouse?  Want to get rid of one?  What goes around, comes around.
If you are the member of a church that looks the other way if you commit adultery, fornication, abortion,  theft, lying, cursing, brawling, hatred, envy, strife, prostitution, whore-mongering, wife beating, child abuse, sexual abuse, sexual child abuse or any other sin imaginable after claiming salvation, but if you skip a tithe payment you will be condemned forever, and if you don't pay your "back tithe", or if you ever fail to pay your tithe on time again, God help you; you just might be in a cult.

Do yourself a favor and find a healthy church that will allow you to live your Christian life and trust you to grow in God's grace and love.  If you can't find a church that is not full of users and abusers, you are better off living for God on your own than allowing some filthy scoundrel to manipulate you for your money or good nature.  As long as you keep enabling these so-called church leaders who appear as "ministers of righteousness" (like 2 Cor 11:13-15 speaks of satan's ministers) and you keep allowing them to use you contrary to God's word, they will literally suck the life out of you; and before you know it, you'll regret giving them the days of your youth.  You'll look back on your life and wonder how you got suckered into sacrificing your future to a bunch of hypocrites.

Don't allow some religious pirate to shipwreck your life for his own selfish pursuit of treasure.
If you want to right the ship, you have to take control of it and do what YOU know is right.  Ultimately, you are responsible for your life; and if you allow others to make the decisions that adversely affect the outcome of your life, you are the one that will have to live with those consequences, not them.  Don't let some corrupt money-grubbing hypocrite make your life decisions for you!  That was the mistake we made.  You don't have to do that.  There is good news.  Life is good; and God is good.  We wasted many years in the ntcc; but there are still many years ahead to redeem.  You are better off closing that ntcc-controlled  chapter of your life and striking out on a new adventure where you give only God the control over the decisions that affect your life.  It's great to wake up every morning and look forward to another day;  you get to decide how to use it, so  choose to include God in your life and those decisions; then you will get the satisfaction of any success that comes along with it. There is joy in obeying God and making those choices freely without being manipulated or used by religious hypocrites who have self-serving agendas.
