I don't believe most of the post you have published on here. I have been a member of a church that is part of NF, and never seen any of this. I am not saying there could never be a wayward church, I am just saying of all the NF churches I have encountered there has been none of it. We used to have a Bible week at Stoneleigh with over 20000 people there, as far as I am aware nothing bad happened. Since NF broke into smaller areas, my church have been having the same thing as at Stoneleigh, and again nothing has happened.
New Frontiers believe in the Bible being the inerrant word of God, so must be the ultimate authority on Earth. The Bible says leadership is male, women can lead children and other women, but not men. However they can preach under the leadership of Elders.
NF is not diminishing in fact it is growing at a furious pace, and more and more churches are joining or being planted, at home and abroad.
I am sorry this does not follow the drift of this site,but I felt that the discussion needed a balance.
I do agree on one thing, I did not like the period following the Toronto Blessing, with the laughing, braying and barking. I do of course speak in tongues.
As for being brainwashed, this is pure rubbish, I have disagreed with Elders at certain times, and never been thrown our of the church or been punished. I also left for a few years to a non NF church and was welcomed back.
