CHRISTIAN & MISSIONARY ALLIANCE DECLARES WAR ON CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION
Subject: Christian & Missionary Alliance seize Christian firefighter/pastor's church and bank account by force then steals their Christmas
Dear Pastors, Workers and Members of New Jersey and Greater New York City Christian and Missionary Alliance and Christians throughout the United States,
Some of you may be aware that Bruce Terpstra and the Metro District may be giving Paramus Community church property to one of their Korean groups. At first this might appear to be a wonderful gift to the Korean Christians in New Jersey. But it is urgent that you know this property was paid for by the Paramus Community Church but was seized the Bruce Terpstra against their wishes and sued them in order to seize their property and bank account. Bruce Terpstra would not even let them stay long enough to have their Christmas program and give the children's presents. In other words, the property is "blood money." Did Bruce Terpstra tell you this truth? Do the members and donors of your congregations know about this? Do you really think that the Lord will bless this work of darkness, knowing that the very property you are worshiping in was taken by force from your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ? Remember this Scripture:
"Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh [but] in vain." Psalm 127:1
You should be alerted to this news story:
Christian & Missionary Alliance seize Nyack Alumn/Christian firefighter/pastor's church and bank account by force then steals their Christmas. Bergen Record runs two stories on Christian & Missionary Alliance church hijacking. Washington Valley C&MA Church does not believe my report:
"This is nothing more than sheer, unadulterated slander...and you know it."
But here is the proof in the Bergen Record newspaper: http://www.northjersey.com/news/135717693_Congregation_locked_out.html
"Judge grants stay to allow Paramus congregation to hold Christmas services" December 16, 2001, Bergen Record
The judge had to grant this stay by court order, because Bruce Terpstra and the C&MA refused to grant this request. Beginning in January 2012, Maranatha Bible Chapel, Nazarene Church in Paramus invited Joe Smaha's congregation to meet in their building, as did a number of other denominations, except the C&MA, of course.
This is one of cases I featured in my Making Merchandise of Men's Soul film documentary.
It will also be featuring nationally on Southwest Radio Church's "Watchman on the Wall" radio show.
See movie trailer on our homepage below.
The C&MA is scrooge/Santa Claus from Hell... instead of bringing Christmas presents, he steals the children's presents from people's houses, then steals their whole house. The wisemen brought gifts to the Manger, these men take gifts away. At least Scrooge didn't take people's houses and bank account, he just wouldn't give them anything. I'll take Scrooge in the Christmas Carol before he repented any day, over the C&MA.
Finally, I am sure you would not want your good reputation tarnished by giving the appearance of evil by receiving the so-called "gift" from Bruce Terpstra and the C&MA.
If you truly fear the Lord, I pray that you warn all of your people and heed the counsel of the Lord! I pray that you warn all of your people and heed the counsel of the Lord! I also exhort you to publicly call on Bruce Terpstra, Metropolitan Christian and Missionary Alliance District and DEXCOM to repent and return the church property in Paramus to its rightful owners, so that God will be glorified.
Before you send one more dollar tithe or offering from your church to the Metro District, remember some of this money is used to sue your brother to seize another church, which might even be yours! I appeal to you to consider this Scripture so you won't be an unwitting accomplice yourself to Bruce Terpstra:
"He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, Both of them alike [are] an abomination to the LORD." Proverbs 17:15
"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?" 1 John 3:17
In case you wonder what the Bible says about seizing another man's offering (church):
HOPHNI & PHINEHAS PRIESTS TAKE OFFERING BY FORCE:
Eli's sons were wicked men; they had no regard for the Lord.
If the man said to him, "Let the fat be burned up first, and then take whatever you want," the servant would then answer, "No, hand it over now; if you don't, I'll take it by force."
This sin of the young men was very great in the Lord's sight, for they were treating the Lord's offering with contempt. 1 Samuel 2:12,16-17
And the requirement to surrender church property that the local church fully paid for with no outstanding mortgage would be where in this ruling by the Apostles? Here is what the Apostle Paul says:
For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God [is] witness:
Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor [yet] of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ. I Thessalonians 2:5-6
"And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved. Butbe it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.
And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.
But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.
Did I make a gain of you by any of them whom I sent unto you?
I desired Titus, and with him I sent a brother. Did Titus make a gain of you? walked we not in the same spirit? walked we not in the same steps." 2 Corinthians 12:13-19
That no [man] go beyond and defraud his brother in [any] matter: because that the Lord [is] the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. 1 Thessalonians 4:6
Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: 2 Thessalonians 3:8
So if Paul would not even take a meal without paying for it, it is inconceivable that he would take anyones church without paying for it.
How about compulsory giving and covenants that the C&MA compels you to perform? What does the Apostle Paul say about that?
"Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver." 2 Cor 9:7
In case you don't think that Bruce Terpstra and/or John Soper have not done the C&MA throughout the country, here are reports in suits filed at our website below.
Look for the next article by Karen Sudol, Staff Writer for the Bergen Record, in which she will let share with the readers what the C&MA, Assemblies of God and other mainline denominations are doing throughout the United States. Projected to run last week of December.
Sincerely in Christ,
James Sundquist Director Rock Salt Publishing http://www.perfectpeaceplan.com
What is the jist of this?
I’m totally with you, seems to be an Extremely long and drawn out way to say they are upset about getting sued and losing their property, I don’t see anything in there explaining why they were sued though.
I didn’t understand the article. Words missing and is too garbled.
Huh? What is this about?
