Strange Doctrine, Strange Wives, Strange Fire

"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."  Gal 1:8

"For I am the Lord, I change not."  Mal 3:6

"Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and to day, and forever." Heb 13:8

Strange Doctrine:

These are great scriptures and they give us assurance that God never changes and the Gospel message is the same as it was 2,000 years ago.  How many of you heard the countless times that this was shared:  "Times change, people change, but God never changes".  Strangely enough, there are a lot of changes that have taken place in the ntcc. Doctrines that were introduced with ultimatums and implications of eternal damnation for disobedience were a big part of how we lived our lives and the message that was preached to the unsaved masses.  These doctrines were added to the gospel message that Jesus saves and we all incorporated these doctrines into our lives as if our eternal salvation was dependent on them.  Paul said if we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.  Let's take a look at some of the strange doctrines that have been taught over the years in the ntcc and let's see if the ntcc falls into the accursed category.  As many ntcc preachers were fond of saying, don't shoot us, we are just the messengers.  We didn't write the bible, we just expect those who claim to be the last move of God on earth to actually be accountable for what they preach to others and how they live themselves.

Strange doctrines of the ntcc:

1.  Tithe:  

Tithe was not preached by Jesus, Paul or any of the apostles.  The ntcc preaches that a person must pay tithe if they wish to make heaven their home.  They teach that if the rapture were to take place, and a person had not paid all of their tithe, that they would be "overweight" and God would not take them to heaven.  This is a strange doctrine that was never preached by anyone in the New Testament. Paul encouraged giving very often in the New Testament, but tithing was never mentioned by Paul.  

"If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?" 1 Cor 9:11

If a minister has dedicated his life to preaching the gospel, then he has the biblical right live of the gospel and he also has a right to be supported in the ministry.  But Paul also said:  

"Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ." 1 Cor 9:12

Now, 1 Cor 9:11 has been used by the ntcc "clergy" to justify mandatory tithe paying but 1 Cor 9:12 has been overlooked to willfully deceive people.  Neither one of these scriptures have anything to do with tithe.  Paul didn't want to hinder the gospel because he knew that if he required mandatory giving that others would come along and pervert the gospel. The ntcc would have to condemn Paul along with all others who don't preach mandatory tithe or hell doctrine.  Now in the ntcc, you have people like Kekel getting rich off of mandatory tithe money that should never have been collected.  Even if Paul would have quit his job and exercised his right to be supported by church members, can anyone honestly say in all sincerity that he would be living like the Kekels?  The ntcc points to this scripture in their bylaws to support their tithe or hell doctrine:

"Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come." 1 Cor 16:1-2

Has there ever been a collection for the saints in the ntcc?  You know, the poor saints who are struggling to pay bills and living off of Ramen noodles?  Last I heard, Ramen is not a food group.  You can call it Chicken or beef Ramen but all you have is some noodles and flavored dust.  You can add chicken or beef to your Ramen but chances are that if you could afford chicken or beef you wouldn't be eating ramen noodles in the first place.  But the collection that Paul took up was not tithe as the ntcc suggests in their bylaws.  It was a collection for the Saints.  The ntcc is deceiving you by using 1 Cor 16:2 to support their tithe or hell agenda.  Here again we find that the ntcc loves to emphasize the part about "laying up in store every week", but they skim over the part that states that the collection was for the saints, not for the money grubbing clergy. The collections taken up in the ntcc do not go towards the poor saints and the ntcc is lying to you in their bylaws.  It's up to you if you wish to be a willing accomplice to this lie.

Unfortunately, all these Lies are Believed in the ntcc in Spite of What the Bible Says

Tithe is a strange doctrine and the ntcc uses it to condemn people to hell for not paying it. Tithe was never intended to get the Priests in the old testament rich. These Old Testament Priests didn't even have a possession among the children of Israel.  Tithe is not part of the gospel and should not be used by anyone to measure the faithfulness of a Christian.  Circumcision, Animal sacrifices and feasts are not part of the gospel, so why should tithe be?  

2.  Holiness:  

What is holiness?  We all know this scripture very well:  

"Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord"  Heb 12:14

The word holiness means: Sanctification of heart and life according to the original Greek found in Strong's concordance.  

This is another doctrine that the ntcc has made really strange.  They define holiness as outward appearance and if you wish to be accepted, you will allow them to tell you what to wear and what not to wear.  Isn't it strange that Jesus never concerned himself with what people wear?  Is it part of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to tell people that if they wear ear rings that they are not holy and to condemn them for wearing ear rings?  Davis allowed his followers to buy him a Rolex watch and a diamond pinky ring, but what do you think would happen if you were to show up at a conference or a bible school class wearing ear rings?  

Is this Really the way God Looks at People?  This is the Way of the ntcc.

A woman in the ntcc was required to wear a long frumpy dress, no make up, no jewelry and not to cut her hair.  If you cut split ends out of your hair, you were lumped in with all the other sinners who were on their way to hell.  If God didn't bless you with a lot of hair, then you were required to wear a wig like Verna. This is strange doctrine and it was preached to us as if our eternal souls depended on it.  Men could not have facial hair or wear shorts, and even jeans were frowned upon back in the day.  Men had to get military hair cuts or they would be preached at for being effeminate.  

This was how the ntcc defined holiness.  It had very little to do with sanctification of heart and life. This strange doctrine was used as a control mechanism and a litmus test which one must pass if they wished to be a part of the ntcc group.

Now I know a lady that goes to a different church and she told me that she doesn't wear jewelry because she felt that like it was a personal conviction that she had between herself and God.  She never pushed this belief on others nor did she say that she felt others needed to have this same conviction.  When people do things willingly and not because some overbearing manipulative jerk preaches that you must turn or burn, it becomes "will worship" and it is part of their personal relationship with God.  In the ntcc all of the rules were presented as ultimatums and you could not co-exist with them unless you obeyed these imposed rules.  The same can be said of tithe.  If a person were to pay tithe without being coerced to a cause that was not corrupted by money grubbing hypocrites, that person might be blessed above and beyond your average ntcc'r who drives a beat up oil puking junker and shops at the Good will store while feeding the insatiable desires for wealth and a luxurious lifestyle of people like Michael Craig Kekel and James Ross ("Jim") Ashmore.  

3.  Other man made rules and expectations:

There were so many rules that were required of ntcc ministers, bible school students and church members.  These rules were required to be followed and if a person didn't follow them they would be preached at for being disobedient and rebellious.

You could not fellowship with others without the permission of your pastor. 

Your children could not go to birthday parties, nor could you have other children over to your house for your child's birthday without the permission of your pastor.  

You could not talk to a member of the opposite sex, or date, or have any type of a relationship with them without asking your pastor for permission.  

You could not miss a church service or function without being condemned.  

You could not visit your family or friends, or attend weddings or funerals without the permission of your pastor.  

You could not watch TV referred to as the Devil Vision even though Davis had one in his house.  

The internet was referred to as the Sinnernet; and people were condemned and falsely accused of looking at pornography if they used it.  

Children were considered "a hindrance to the work of the Lord" and many men got vasectomies to comply with this false doctrine.  The ntcc never discouraged this practice, but Kekel later said that these neutered men did it on their own, while Mike and Tanya spawned a rebellious sinner by the name of Grant.

Can anyone show us where Jesus went around requiring people to follow a bunch of rules like this?  Come on people, let's turn on our brains and think this thing through. The Gospel has been perverted by the ntcc for the purpose of controlling people and profiting off of their misery.  So many people were run off because they didn't adhere to the man made rules of the ntcc.  These people all desired one thing and that was to be a Christian and live for God.  When things got strange, they ended up leaving.  When Davis, Kekel, Olson and Ashmore preached these strange doctrines, people felt like they would go to hell if they didn't apply these teachings to their lives.  We all thought that we were the only people on earth that were going to heaven.

Strange Wives (and Husbands):  -  Adultery on Demand

"And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery." Mark 10:11-12

"Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery." Luke 16:18

"So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man." Rom 7:3

Where does the ntcc get its doctrine of Adultery on Demand?  Why is it that there are several marriages in the ntcc that have been dissolved and the former spouses are married off into other adulterous relationships?  The bible is pretty clear on this subject.  Jesus spoke about it and Paul also spoke about it.  1 Cor 7 will give you a break down on this. Nowhere in the bible does it say a woman can abandon a man because he gave his daughter a swimming lesson at a public pool without a wearing a shirt in the swimming pool (Olson's son-in-law Ousted).  Nowhere does it say that if a man gets sick of his wife or a woman gets sick of her husband that they can divorce them and try out a new partner to see if that works better.  If a man or woman lose their spouse because of death, they are allowed to remarry.  If the unbelieving wife or husband chooses to abandon their spouse, the believing spouse can get remarried.  This does not mean that if the husband or wife sees the ntcc as a scam and stops attending their cult brain washing services that the brainwashed spouse can abandon the person that they made vows to. Nowhere in the bible does it say that Gesang can abandon his first wife because she exposed him for leaving bruises and welts on his child and be free to marry someone else; but he did, just ask Mary, his first ntcc wife, or Sandy, his second ntcc wife, or Michael, his son.  We wonder if Gesang will beat his grandkids too?  Someone might want to ask Angela Gesang how she feels about leaving her kids with Grandpa Gesang. The ones that have grounds for divorce are often the ones that are forced to leave; and if you don't believe me, just ask Fontenot's eX-wife.  She had every right to leave him because of his incestuous acts, but Olson told her to find another church and kept Fontenot around so he could troll the ntcc's children's church that he once taught for some more victims. There are ministers and minister's wives in the ntcc that have been married not just twice, not just three times but four times and some have probably been married even more than that. Several former ministers and/or their wives have testified that people like Davis and Olson tried to split up their marriages so they could later marry them off to someone else. 

If you are in the ntcc and you are a part of one of these adulterous marriages, (as defined by Jesus and Paul), you are a victim of the divorce on demand policy that the ntcc condones and encourages among its members.  You might have a strange wife and an estranged wife, or you might have a strange husband and an estranged husband, but this is not what God intended when you vowed to be with each other for better or worse, till death do you part. 

Strange Fire:

"And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before the LORD." Num 26:61

The ntcc has been offering strange fire before the Lord.  Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took censers, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he did not command them to do.  The ntcc has not been commanded to teach many of the strange doctrines that they teach.  They are charged with the gospel; and they have introduced a strange gospel that didn't originate from God.  The ntcc has been exploiting people for money and sex for decades; and as long as you keep enabling them, they will continue to offer a strange sacrifice to God that He is not pleased with, neither has God commanded them to do so. 

Lately the ntcc has been changing as they have been getting exposed for their hypocrisy and double standards.  They have had to change their doctrine and their gospel to accommodate their own compromise and to continue to bring in money and numbers. Even though many of the changes have been subtle and the rules have slowly been altered or vanished altogether, they still are the same corrupt people, profiting off of the labors of others.  One thing is sure and that is that tithe will continue to be preached in spite of the fact that it has never been a New Testament requirement.  Men will continue to divorce and marry strange wives while women divorce and marry strange husbands.  The strange doctrine will always be a part of the ntcc; because the ntcc leadership are not about to give up their piece of the pie.  They will continue to exploit people financially and sexually as they are still the same corrupt people that they were four decades ago.
In spite of all this strangeness, there is good news for you ntcc'rs.  Many of you are hapless victims of false prophets and doctrines that Jesus and the Apostles warned us of. There still remains a remnant of people scattered throughout the earth that are sincere; and they desire to live their lives out of love for God and their fellow man.  They are The Church, not the ntcc, but a body of believers that love God and love their neighbor as themselves.  They care about the poor and less fortunate folks around them; and many of them preach more with their actions than they do with their mouths.  They are not in this world to condemn the world but that they might show others that they have hope through Christ. Isn't that what the apostles and early church fathers were all about?  Everything was about Jesus back then, not a bunch of made up rules that cannot be supported by the bible without twisting the written word of God.  You are all free moral agents with the ability to think for yourselves.  Salvation is much more personal.  There is a reason why it's referred to as a personal relationship.  Jesus doesn't need your money and neither does Kekel.  Kekel wants your money and he will lie to you and anyone if it enriches his lifestyle.  Kekel is the richest man in the ntcc and you need to ask yourself, "Does he really care about me?  If I were to stop paying tithe, how would he treat me and my family?"  Does God really care as much about your outward appearance as He does about what's inside?  Does the inward work that God has done in your life translate to a bunch of rules and standards that are impossible to keep or does it translate into a life of love towards others that allows others to see the true works of God that have been done in your heart?  We desire nothing from you other than your freedom. We don't ask for a cent on this blog; and we don't use it to advertise or make a profit.  I have a job and feel that God has blessed us a lot in spite of the fact that my money is not going towards making a religious huckster like Kekel rich. Our sincere hope for you all is that you find your way to freedom and that you find true happiness and peace in your hearts.
