Hallo Free-Lady,kannst du das ins deutsche p?ersetzten f? Wikipedia Deutschlanbd?`Bitte an eMail zur?k zu mir:Urban.C-R@Web.deRalph Urban==statistics about the fellowship==A very extreme [[pentecostal]] group which is lead by the self-appointed "Pastor" [[Scott Williams]] from bases in [[Coffs Harbour]] in [[New South Wales]] and [[Scotland]]. According to their website [http://www.cai.org] groups in 18 countries. They claim to be between 500 and 600 members (including children). In late 2006 the number of people dropped to approx. 250 persons (including children) due to allegations of sexual abuse and financial misconduct by the so-called overseer A. Scott Williams.The group has not grown since 1986. Although there have always been new members, the number of people leaving has cancelled out any growth.==History & Facts==The first name of this group was "Pfingsten Erweckungs Bewegung" which is German for Pentecostal Revival Centres or Movement. The group started in [[Feldafing]] (Bavaria, Germany) in the "Fernmeldeschule" of the military ("military communication technology academy") where Williams worked as an assistant at the swimming pool in 1980. He spread his interpretation of the Bible throughout the military base. Some people "got saved" into this fellowship. They came from various areas of Germany. This was the beginning of the so called "cell group system" (House groups) which were implemented by Williams throughout Germany. At an early stage the group was renamed Revival Centres International, due to an affiliation with an Australian Church of the same name. This affiliation was disbanded in 1991 due to Williams fearing takeover of his work and being unable to accept any kind of criticism or advice from the pastors of the Australian group. The name Christian Assemblies International and / or Christian Assemblies Europe was then chosen.In 1993 a young German Military Police officer called Michael Krause joined the group. He quickly became one of the central leadership after spending a night with Williams at the group? annual summer retreat. The members were told that Krause had been taken up into heaven and since then he was continually referred to as being a cut above the rest. Williams often stated that Krause had given him what no other man had been unable to give him until then. Considering the number of men who have been sexually abused by Williams but who refused to go the whole way with him, it can only be speculated what really happened on that fateful night. In any case Krause was put on a pedestal, granted full power over all members and managed to ruin many lives in the process. He moved to Australia with Williams and on Williams?advice married a native girl to prevent any possible future visa problems. His wife has since left and he has no contact to her or his kids and only pays her 50$ a month despite receiving a hefty church salary and being a seller for Mannatech [http://www.mannapages.com/sharethegift/MPConfirmUserAccount.asp?T=1]. He is the highest paid seller of Mannatech in the church and recently bought himself a Mercedes. The meek shall inherit the earth, right!Since the mass exodus of members in 2006 he is officially leader of the church when Williams had to step back (his own words) due to allegations of sexual abuse.From: Donald MacDonald To: All Officers Cc: All KG-RG ; All Secretaries Sent: Thursday, November 09, 2006 2:14 PM Subject: Message on stepping backTo All Officers,This message is to be read out to all AssembliesAfter intensive talks with Pastor Scott and listening to his concerns of late, we the counsellors are writing to inform you all that officially the overseer has decided to fully withdraw as General Overseer, hereby handing over full responsibility and the oversight to Pastor Michy, and to his advisors the senior officers.As the recent events have taken their toll more and more on his health, Scott has stated that he will fully step back.It should also be noted that Scott has taken into account the fears of some - that he has not withdrawn himself enough from the Lord's work after his initial confession. In order to ease those concerns therefore, wisdom requires that he withdraws as General Overseer. However, let it be known that as the scripture says:"For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again". MATT 7:2 (See also MK 4:24 and LK 6:38)While the counsellors are aware that Scott is doing this out of wanting the best for the assembly and fully respect this, they cannot find any scriptural evidence to support this move. The counsellors therefore hope and pray that Scott will be restored in the Lord's work, as we have seen with many others in the past.Love in ChristThe CounsellorsSome claim Michael Krause has been adopted by A. Scott Williams; in any case he is now called Michael Williams. Scott Williams has admitted to engaging in "partial homosexuality" because he was in a very stressful situation. He also claims to have reconciled himself with the few victims. However, the number of members who have since vividly described their sexual encounters with Williams leads one to believe otherwise. In January 2007 Scott Williams anounced he was reinstating himself as leader of the group, again without showing any kind of remorse or acknowledgement for the effect he has had on many young men.==Special Doctrines==The Christian Assemblies International and Christian Assemblies Europe teach that '[[speaking in tongues]]' and "full under water baptism" is necessary for salvation (imperative), and deny salvation by [[faith alone]].The cult is based on strong teachings and the members can overwhelm "new ones" (as visitors to the group are referred to) with their apparent knowledge of the Bible. Unfortunately this only applies to their own twisted doctrines and any scriptures they can find to back them up. The CAI often picks out isolated Bible verses that can be twisted to the meaning of their teachings. Insiders report that they are expert at manipulating the Bible to make it say what they want it to but that they lack any "real knowledge" or understanding of it. They avoid the bits that don't fit in with their doctrine.Male members are more or less forced to build friendships with other men within the assembly. These friendships are sealed by offical prayer sessions (as are engagements between men and women) and the men are expected to kiss each other on the mouth. They are also advised to sleep naked with one another in the same bed while the wife sleeps on the sofa. They arrange "massage evenings" where men are more or less naked and "serving" each other with massages. They compare this practise with the biblical "foot washing". It is sadly obvious that all these doctrines have been introduced by a sexual predator, with the aim of breaking down barriers and preparing men for homosexual intercourse with the "overseer" Scott Williams.They hold to the [[British-Israel]] doctrine which is used to support [[white supremacy]] in some Christian Identity circles.Bible numerics, [[pyramidology]], and [[King James Only]] theology are also taught.The assembly believes in the "The Father's Blessing" (introduced already in 1990). Such practices which has been made public through the spiritualist [[Kathryn Kuhlman]] and the so called evangelist [[Benny Hinn]] and through the former "[[Vineyard Christian Fellowship]]" in Toronto the "[[Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship]]" where the phenomena got its modern name "[[Toronto blessing]]".Also Scott Williams introduced the occult "vizualisation techniques" into his fellowship.They also believe in the very often criticised teaching of the "inner man" ([[E. W. Kenyon]]) and partly in the "[[word of faith]]" doctrine of the the metaphysician E. W. Kenyon and later by [[Kenneth Hagin]] and made more popular through the books and teachings of [[David Yonggi Cho]].==Family=="Let the dead bury their dead" (from Luke 9;60) is the central teaching towards unbelievers including family members. The result is very cold behaviour by the members towards their own families and this has often led to irreparable breaches. The assembly and the obedience towards the leadership of the cult is always more important then the stability of family life.The role of wives is to follow and to obey their husbands as long as the "family heads" are following the doctrine of the fellowship. If this is not the case (in the leader? eyes) the woman? allegiance is to be to Williams and Williams only. In cases where men have left and their wives remained, the wives were expected to swear oaths to follow Williams for the rest of their lives. Women are also punished for any so-called unsubmissiveness to any man in the group by having to stay in youth hostels, being removed from the group, etc. Domestic abuse has also been rampant. Although officially frowned upon it was sometimes the only way for men to get their wives to behave the way Williams says they should. Children are also expected to obey without question and the fundamentalist doctrine of the Pearls [http://www.nogreaterjoy.org] is adhered to. Young boys are to be preserved for Williams and it is a great honour for them to be selected to go and work on his estate in Australia.The Leadership controls their members through a mixture of psychologic pressure and Bible verses and the members are often ordered to talk about the most intimate things (e. g. about their sex life)!==External links==Anti-Cult Forum: [http://www.aimoo.com/forum/freeboard.cfm?id=443300&NoCaches=Yes] Anti-Cult informations: (http://www.pleaseconsider.info) Official cult website (http://www.cai.org)== Categories: == [[Cults]] [[Christian fundamentalism]]

I'm part of CAI and they don't do any of that. You're a fool if you believe what newspapers and the pope, (known as the anti-Christ and Beast), say.
Fellowship from the Bible is where we pray together, read scriptures and hear talks from those saved after many years. We have prophecies and interpretations in meetings. Speaking in Tongues is a commandment from Jesus. He asked us to heal the sick, cast out demons, speak in tongues and do many miracles giving Glory to our father in Heaven. God wants us to have the Spiritial Gifts, why else would he allow us to receive them and speak to us?
If you like siring up lies then the Bible makes it clear all liars will burn in a lake of fire and brimstone. Another thing Jesus comaned us to do is repent which in Hebrew means turn from Sin and look to God and get Baptized, which in Hebrew means to be immersed in water. Tongues follow on when you receive the Holy Spirit.
The reason we're hunted down by other Religions is because we teach the Real Doctrine, not some watered down rubbish which comes from the Vatican.

Prophesying? You would no doubt venture that was by the Holy Spirit? If so, then how come in the decades that men and children were sexually abused, no prophesy, no message was ever given to warn those who were about to be abused, or admonishing and rebuking those who carried out such things?
Those are of course rhetorical questions, we all know the answers. The Holy Spirit is most evidently not in your sick sect. If that is not plain enough, let me put it more bluntly, your works, your practices, your doctrines are of Satan and as bound and directed by him, his work you will continue to do.
Keep up the denial and you will continue to sink further into the mire. Your time will come. God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.
