This is How Pentecostalism Destroys Our Families

This is How Pentecostalism Destroys Our Families

I think this is a very important topic. Let’s run through the questions and see if we can generate discussion and possible solutions. You can answer as many as you like.

Has Pentecostalism caused a divorce in your family?

Has Pentecostalism caused your kids to break off contact with you?

Has Pentecostalism caused your parents to break off contact with you?

Has your pastor caused your family to break up?

Has your pastor increased the arguments between you and your spouse or kids or parents?

Has Pentecostalism broken strong ties with your extended family such as aunts, uncles, grandparents, or grandchildren? How?

Has your pastor or anyone in authority in your former churches committed adultery with anyone in your family? Have they committed adultery with anyone in the church and in the process destroy any families?

Have any pastors or anyone in church authority try to take advantage of young girls sexually – or girls too young to understand the deviousness of older men looking for young meat?

Have you mended any of the damage that Pentecostalism has caused your family? How?

Do you have plans to mend the damage to your family? What are they?

Let’s roll with answers and options. Let’s help each other out here!

Yes the upc or upci or the wwpc what ever they call them self's these days! do cause problems with these issues and many more, they put so much fear in a person, there afraid to do anything ( its fear from man not God) They Manipulate,intimidate people to do what they want them to do and God forbid you have gifts from God, man some hate that!!! There is always a person that takes charge of everything in the church and has the say so usually a women, this spirit is called Jezebel look into it...( The Spirit of Jezebel) there is books out there to read. I used to be in the upc for about 15 years my sister was in for about 25 years, the upc did so much damage to my sister and her daughter they are still damaged from it and they have been out of the upc for 4 years and are still getting healed from all the damage to there hearts( Thank God) They are always saying people are going to go to hell if they don't change what ever, man they judge so much, that's Gods place not theirs they are putting themselves in the place of GOD. I have heard so much of people judging others even in the church i couldn't stand it anymore and there is so much jealousy man its bad. I could go on an on there is so much and many secrets, they keep many things a secret and why?????

Penecostalism has made things very chaotic and difficult in my home. Constant fighting and profanity. They think anything can have a spirit. If there is a tshirt with a skull on it, they think it brings in the devil. Very strange stuff. Everything is annointed, even people, against their will. Even when its the person who is pentecostal who is causing the chaos in the home. They blame "the enemy" and evil spirits for them acting so cruelly. No one at the AoG here church wears only looong dresses and doesnt cut their hair though. People look normal. The key word being look.

We have huge problems with Pentecostals at work, they yell their way to win an argument about christian views, they have a pevers view of the bible. Criticise anyone else view on christianity. It is very warped, not what Jesus would have wanted at all.

Rachel said...

What a mess: can answer yes to all but one question. The shameful thing is the moment I realized it, I wanted to say the enemy made those things happen.

Funny, old habits die hard.

Pentecostal Worship leaders and anointers are scary than rapists. In most churches where we live single men n young married worship leaders literally hug, fondle, even kiss girls in the name of anointing, plenty of scandals were released on youtube already!! Worship events r turning into night clubs, I was about to fall in trap by marrying a pentecostal woman, who believes she needs to pray before making love to get permission from God, they teach Sex is a sin and all the missionary position stuffs. Which is nowhere in Bible. Moreover there are pastors who propecied subtly n fakely n tailored divorces. Sick people.

I'm very saddened by what's going on in these pentecostal.churches..however I have been raised in it since I was born for 18 years! Thanks god they couldn't brainwash me...and I quitted, I always felt what they teach is not the truth, they damage families. My mom and sister think I lost.my salvation since I dont belong to their.so calldd church anymore....they look at the pastor as the unfallible man of God amd if anyone dare criticise him it means they actually go against God...what a nonsense. Your not allowed to wear this or that cuz it brings adultery demons lmfao....ur not allowed to watch harrypotter and stuff... people betray their family members in the name of God... what a false teaching..and false teachers as Jesus warned us :(

So sad! I'm praying for all who speak such horrible lies.

Sorry to all the current Pentecostals on this forum, but most of these don't seem like lies, but rather very hard truths. I'm still a Christian, but I have a very strained relationship with my Pentecostal parents because I don't agree with them on a few matters, and they've been actively brainwashed to fear for my soul because I don't agree. It's very hurtful on both sides. I got out because I asked God for truth, and He allowed me the ability to question without overwhelming fear of going against the dogma. Maybe I'll start praying that God will deliver my parents from fear as well.

Pentecostalism wasn't what separated my family from extended family it is all my parents' thinking and introverted nature. Pentecostalism doesn't cause all those bad things it's people that sin that cause those things. A pastor sexual harassing people has nothing to do with him being pentecostal. But yes, people should not force their kids to be pentecostal everyone should choose their path. Theres a reason they have rules for every single thing if you know the reason then you can be happy.

if you want to know why about a pentecostal rule such as why not watch harry potter just email me missshe360@gmail.com

Pentecostal churches are the MOST hypocritical of all USA religions. They profess extreme holiness and outwardly appear great. Having recently come out from their false church I can say that their leadership at every level is full of every secret sin, especially sexual sins, and they routinely destroy families by their false teachings. I have wasted 30 years of my life with these folks. If you are reading this post and considering joining them, my advice would be RUN as fast as you can and never make a step in their direction. They are a cult for sure and you will save yourself a lot of heartache and stress by never joining them in the first place.

Speaking in tongues will not save you..when the holy spirit enters you. You don't fall to the ground and jerk and twich. Read you Bible..this is demonic. If the church doesn't keep all ten commandments your not protected by God and Satan can enter into Persons. End times Satan will counterfeit these feelings. Possession and Perform miracles. Just what your church teaches.

They promise healing or orosperity if u continue ti give money and pentecostal charismatics dont or wont offer counsel or support for the emitional suffering and bereaved!

Maurice Smith said...

Good idea! Run to an evangelical church or one like calvary chapel. Calvary is very laidback.

Maurice Smith said...

Try more modern laid back like calvary chapels they are real nice folks with more modern music etc

Maurice Smith said...

A real concern and which had me angry at times is how new age and humanistic they are! U having to dictate to God while they dismuss His sovereignty altogether along with health and wealth plus nit very hospitable to the poor and needy!

Why not bowling? Why not disney movies? Why do some have different standards then others? Why do you pray for backsliders by saying "god whatever it takes" why all the judgment? Why all the hypocrisy and lies? Why all the special treatment for some and not for others? Its just the people? Well its the majority of people. That church uses music and affirmations to self hypnotize you and you become a brainwashed meek little sheep.

Alexis Becerra said...

I heard over and over people praying "oh god,im so unworthy" standing up to testify and saying "church i feel so unworthy of gods love" really? If you are made of his own image why the heck do you feel unworthy???

Mad Doc said...

I became a Pentecostal at age 2. In 1986 my Pentecostal church was pedaling fear. I was 18 and I was told this: The church believes that "we only have about ten years left on Earth." No joke! I turned 18 in April and I was married in May to another Pentecostal. Yeah, well, here's my reply to those "brothers in the Lord". If you act and say that you are speaking under the anointing and false words fall from your lips to God's people and put His people in fear--that's contrary to God's plan--BECAUSE IT NEVER HAPPENED! That was 30 years ago. I was Conned.

I am 22 now. I was born and raised in the pentecost. At the age 15 I left and moved in with my dad. Because I finally opened my eyes and mind to all this brainwashed crap. I feel like I am a better person now that I left than I was when I was in the church. Its been 7 years and my family still does not accept me for me. This past weekend 03/30/2017 I went and visited my mom and family (all pentecostal, I have pastors and ministers in my family) my last night I was there my aunt pulled me aside and told me she has concerns when I am around her kids and thats why I am never allowed to be with them alone. She also said that she hopes I find my way back to god, that something wrong had to have had happened to me cause I no longer live the pentecostal life. So even though I had one more night to stay, I pack my stuff up and my daughters stuff told my fiance we are leaving cause cleary we arent welcomed. I cried my whole 10hr trip. It's sad... this pentecostal life ruins families and lives. I just remembering growing up I always felt so alone cause I wasn't ever allowed to make friends outside the church unless I pretty converted them. I was homeschooled as well. If they were kids in the church who seemed a lil bit more wordly than the rest I wasn't allowed to associate with them. I cut a lil piece of my hair when I was a kid and my mom had a meltdown like it was the end of the world like I was going to hell right then and there. Sad life I lived.
Let me ask you this.
If god is real.. why would he let his people die.. suffer let all these innocent children starve and suffer. Why let babies die from cancer or even have cancer. If he is real... I have so much anger towards him. I am mad he destroys families... and lets all this bullshit happen in this world.

Well what is your idea of a Christian? Is it to wear whatever drink and smoke whatever and hang out with whomever. That's the world The bible says come ye out and be sparate, (were not like everyone else) and what friend has like with darkness( who you choose to be your friends should be like minded or equally yolked) also women shall not wear what pertainith to a man. It's pretty plain and simple. Straight and narrow is the way and all are going to be judged on there works. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR GOD'S KINGDOM?
