Charismatic Leaders Controlling Ways

I have been in Charismatic Churches whereby the leader or head Pastor will condemn or pronounce curses on anyone who leaves their church. They will say things like, “God put you here, so this is where you are to stay.” Or “You will never be blessed unless you stay here and stay underneath the umbrella of our Charismatic truths.” But I want to say that Charismatic leaders take upon themselves authority that does not belong to them.

I give you another short article exposing the captivation of people within charismatic Churches.

Charismatic Captivation Exposed by Steven Lambert, Thd.

Multitudes of sincere and trusting believers are caught in the virtually invisible web of religious captivation in Charismatic and other Neo-Pentecostal churches, and don’t know it. They are unaware victims of spiritual abuse and exploitation under the heavy-hand of hyper-authoritarianism. That is to say, the leadership of the church-group of which they are a part is dominating, controlling, and manipulating their followers, and exploiting them for their own personal gain and private kingdom-building.

Read the rest here.

    Having a very long history with what Steven Lambert has discussed in this article, find it an excellent resource for those seeking to get out of this ‘terrorizing- manipulation’….still going on. Was, myself, under Mumford, Prince, Simpson, Baxter and Basham from the early ’70’s. Thank you for this, will pass it on, since I have many friends still caught in this trap, knowing that something isn’t quie right, but not knowing just what it is. This is the first thought the Lord put in my pea-pickin’ little brain, lol…”I’m being manipulated”…from there…I ran. Glory!

      Thank you for your comment. I to was controlled and manipulated and told that if I left the Charismatic church that I attended that I would be out of the will of God and cursed.

      I also want to say that I appreciate the post that you put out over on your blog. You have done a good job exposing Rick Warren and exposing the Emergent Church Movement. Thanks.
