$%*'`[Deep Throat Mole]%*'`@"Pastor Simon" is alleged to have said (words to the effect that) "when people leave RCI they frequently bag individual pastors/house leaders but they are unable to criticise the doctrine" (presumably because it is 100% correct)Not so sure about BI myself!.Deep

Hello DTM,

Simon obviously doesn't get out much!

Simon (Titanic deckchair re-arranger ) is alleged to have said for 2012 that the meetings will start at 2PM.

Not sure where that leaves the fellowship lunch - prior to the meeting perhaps?

The Mole tips that this will result in even fewer present at the lunches.

The Mole is unaware of any large carol service this year.

The Mole is unaware of any service on Sunday 25 December 2011.

The Mole will be attending Midnight Mass at St Elsewhere's

On 18/12/2011 Simon is alleged to have said that as there will not be a service on Sunday 25 December (also known as Christmas Day to non RCI people) could everyone please give double offerings as the church had bills to pay.

Good luck with that one, Simon.
perhaps you should issue audited financial statements each year to enable the people in the pews to decide how much to give to keep the place going.

I think it's sad, that the RCI don't have a 25th Dec meeting, The church should have Sunday as the lords day 52 times a year, the sabbath, so "the world" still influence's the church, and all you good RCI people go have the 25th day off from the lords day and mix it with your worldly friends, giving presents to their pagan beliefs, the RCI will accommodate you on this worldly belief.

Stand up RCI and don't let these worldly things into the church, Christ never did

The Mole understands that during Simon's sermon on the evils of commercialised Christmas he gave a spray to those who could not be bothered to think of an appropriate present for someone and resorted to a gift voucher.

After his homily Simon called up a visting Canadian pastor and his family for their testimonies.
the Canuck kicked off with the statement that they had obtained a gift voucher for Simon but after hearing his views on the topic they has destroyed it.

Canada 1, Simon Nil !

The Mole will be at Midnight Mass as usual on Christmas day.

Hi, Mole.

I'm surprised. Given that the RCI stands apart from the entire Church in their dismissing of Christmas outright from the Christian calendar, I find it somewhat amusing that Simon would comment on the commercialising of the celebration one way or the other! Also, that he would do so presents the impression that he is accepting of a 'true' meaning for Christmas after all (which is bolstered even further by the Follow the Star display put on at the sect's headquarters).

What would Lloyd have made of all this?! ;)

Blessings,

Ian

I could not reconcile the FTS display with that fact that there is no service on Christmas day from the first time that it was presented.

Something else that occurred to me while reading Ian's post was that RCI does not commemorate either the birth or death of Christ, the doors being closed on Good Friday as well.

In conjunction with one of the previous FTS presentation they had a carols concert to which Mrs Mole invited friends of ours, doing her recruitment duty. After the concert one of the greeters at the back asked the husband how he liked to show and in response John asked what time the Christmas day service was to take place. A short silence then eventually there was some stammered reply about no show because everyone would be getting ready to go the camp the next day.

Mrs Mole advises that Richard, the bloke who has organised FTS up to now has stated that he won't be putting up his hand next time so we may not see this event in the future.

Hi, Mole.

Despite their best efforts, the RCI serves as an object lesson of what results when ignorant people reject the historic and living faith tradition, preferring instead to cobble together something that they [b]imagine[/b] is representative of the primitive church. Consequently, why [i]would[/i] they commemorate either the birth or death and resurrection of Christ? He's naught but a 'bit' player in their belief system (there [u]is[/u] a reason that the overwhelming majority of believers, whether Roman Catholic, Orthodox or Protestant, corporately confess the Creed each Sunday).

Sadly, whenever I've asked Revivalists, "what makes [b][u]you[/u][/b] different from everyone else?" In about 95% of the cases, the answer [b][u]doesn't[/u][/b] include the words, '[b]Jesus Christ[/b]'.

These people [i]aren't[/i] [b][u]Christ[/u]ians[/b], they're [b][u]Longfield[/u]ians[/b]!

God bless,

Ian

Well said Ian that is exactly right.  They are nothing but  `Longfieldians`  and that is the sum of it...... the Longfield cult for sure- sadly   leading many (or not so many these days thankfully)   astray....

It is sad.

The eternal purpose of God centres on Jesus Christ. All blessings come through him. Any attempt to separate the Father from the Son and the Spirit in election, or to move the attention in the Christian doctrine of salvation from the person and work of Christ, is unbiblical and therefore harmful (Milne).

Revivalists do exactly this by promoting tongues along with receiving the Holy Spirit as the means of salvation.

Last Sunday PR Bruce Judkins is alleged to have given  a spray to those who arrived "late" i.e during the choruses saying that they should arrive at twenty to two and not twenty past.

According to the page in Wikipedia participation in the choruses is optional but maybe Bruce hasn't read the Wikipedia entry lately.

The Mole reckons that two choruses before the "talk" would be more than enough which is probably why he does not go there very often and prays that Mrs Mole will see the light eventually.

Hi, Mole.

Perhaps instead of 'spraying' Mr Judkins should be thanking his lucky stars that anyone turns up at all! If the 'folk' were to visit a Christian church, and were to experience the freedom, grace and love firsthand, they'd never darken a Revivalist hall again.

Blessings,

Ian

 Last Sunday Simon is alleged to have complained about not being able to get good help these days in that nobody wants to be pastors, house leaders or chorus leaders and he added that he had been trying to get a pastor for Adelaide for the last fifteen years.

If he looked at the unseen female half of the membership as many Christian Churches now do  he would double his pool of prospective candidates.

With regard to Adelaide how about having a go there yourself Simon and let Victor mind the shop for a year or two?

Another thing that Mrs Mole mentioned was that a wedding was not held in the Box Hill hall because the best man and one of the groomsmen were persona non grata and not permitted inside the building, possible due to their own cohabitation with persons with whom they were not joined in holy matrimony.

Cheers

Mole

 Mrs Mole advises that the latest ""outreach" will be a carwash that will take place on Sundays and not conclude until after 2.30PM and the coffee will be served in the mezzanine so the punters can watch the choruses and if the stay long enough experience the talks.
Heaven forbid that some of them actually stay long enough for the "tongues"and pröphesy" bit!

 Mrs Mole advises that an elderly lady reprimanded Simon  as the carwash would mean  working on the Sabbath and not in line with the ten commandments. Simon's reply was someting along the lines of now that we are saved we are always one with God so the Sabbath is no different to any other day.

Mrs Mole is starting to mention the one with God bit with some regularity now as well.

Hi D-T-M.

I remember that 'quip' in their doctrine. I wonder if Simon really knows the meaning "to be one with God" or in what context does he take it in scripture?

I was led to believe, just because we 'babbled in tongues' and got 'dunked under the water', we had the Holy Spirit making us equal to God and therefore made us one with him.

Suggest to Mrs Mole to ask Simon what it really means to be 'one with God'.

'care

 Just referring to the blog back in Jan. Hypocrites the lot of them as there are many in the church who have had sex out of wedlock ( fornicated) and who are still in the church and still been allowed to be married at church (that law was not retrospective, so everyone could stay in who had fornicated prior) .There are also very senior pastors who have wavered from the path and had to get married who are still preaching and still pastors ......hypocrites the lot of them! I was recently interstate and a senior oversight there was talking about this - the comment was something like ' sooner or later many in the church will have to choose... How can you have fornicators in charge of the church especially with our doctrine of putting all fornicators out of the  church permanently and banning them from attending other churches' ......and that was on top of the Gold Coast rally which opening preached that it is better for these people to go nowhere rather than any other church ... Less they pollute if too! 

This is a subject that is taboo and only whispered about, but people are getting more fed up with the hypocrasy and therefore becoming more vocal....

 The other day Simon alighted briefly on a verse in the Old Testament in the middle of an account of some wrong doing under the influence of alcohol and he commented that when "some people" had asked him why RCI did not use wine for the communion service he was able to direct them to that passage as an indication of the evils of alcohol and which was why RCI members were expected to abstain.

So what happened to the "wine means grape juice" line that they have been running?
