I've just seen this article on Cult 101 - another indication that the Destiny Church Glasgow is damaging. See Creflo Dollars inviation to the SECC by Andrew Owen. Well done the wee frees for at least attempting to stand up to them.

They clearly think they are off the hook. Youtube is POLLUTED by a huge number of videos that have been uploaded in January. Hope they don't get to destroy many more lives.

Is this organisation linked in any way to Destiny Ministries run by Andrew Owen? It's just that I've known a few people who have gone to both.

Thanks for your post, TrueScot. Another one is Richard Roberts who was invited to come to Destiny Church in Glasgow in 2009 claiming to be able to heal people of cancer. Glasgow City Council said that he could face prosecution if he made unfounded claims of being able to cure people and Jim Cassidy of Oncology at Glasgow spoke about the danger of giving false hope to vulnerable people. There

hello, I have been reading (all the time) with my new bi-focals . I am so glad that everyone continues to remember and post their memories. Still, after years , like many,I have the shackles of Struthers. Probably, always, most of them will be connected to my wedding day.(see previous posts) Thankfully ,we still tell the tale and people shudder when they hear it. {let it be known that we fo

Oh.. the Wiston camps....the caravans and tents which we paid a packet for and we had to go to both camps. We missed a family funeral during one of them. A regret which will stay with me forever. It was there that Rosemary McCauley preached refreshingly, once or twice. What about Allison Black? She didn`t feature much in the team. So many sad memories of people (including myself) being brain wa

Hello, JJ was not a Head Teacher .Was a Depute. And she ignored me completely several years AFTER my husband and I left Struthers. I attended a funeral . She was there too. She ignored me. I wont ever forget that. It was the first time I had seen her since leaving. It was a Church Of Scotland funeral. Nor , will I forget that when we left STRUTHERS ... the first and only contact we had was

Hello all, I may go quiet, but I never go away and I have again, enjoyed the postings. Not so much "enjoyed", but felt a great feeling of "relief" that some outside entity OSCR is taking note and maybe realising that things are not right within the place of SMC. MY posts still stand and are absolutely true, Archbishop Laud and Clive. I am still trying to rid myself of the &quo

Haven`t posted for a while but have followed avidly and thorughly agree with cbarb. Clive, this isn`t about i-pads. You aren`t understanding anything of the lies and deceit and damage and hurt which has been happening and continues to happen in Struthers to this day to innocent people.You, Clive , couldn`t have been a member of the Church. Although many times I feel that you thoroughly support

I would also like to wish everyone a happy 2013 and state that my New Year`s resolution is to keep posting on this very worthwhile forum and my greatest desire is that we would get some answers from the perpetrators.

Clive and Kelvin, I will not stop posting on this forum because of your comments , which hugely seem to think that us posters are talking rubbish, feigning madness, depressed, making up stories, holding grudges or imagining what happened to us over a lengthy period of time in the clutches of Struthers. I will not repeat my experiences to either of you as they are clearly written in black and wh

kelvin, I can`t help but feel sad for you because you seem to be missing the whole point. In your attempt to stand up for SMC you seem to avoid the truth that so much damage has been caused to so many honest and genuine people for so many years by SMC. Are you blind? Also I don`t get the impression from you that you actually hear what people are saying. READ the posts on this forum again. You ob

hello Kelvin, I wonder how long you "were" part of Struthers for and I notice that you cannot be wholly committed to Struthers if you "attend other churches". Perhaps you , secretly, have your own doubts/thoughts/questions. My experiences are well documented on this forum. Hopefully you have read them. Along with the truths and experiences that many others have posted. I ca

Hello, I haven`t posted for a while. Sometimes I think some "stick up" for Struthers , but what I experienced, happened, and I will take it to my grave (see previous posts). I know also that D. Rutherford has managed to get hubby Graham (former police man) to be working in her classroom as a support worker. Who agreed to that in the authority and why? Don`t tell me that there are no S

CBarb and Rensil, I have been avidly reading your posts and re-living again the horrors of Struthers and continually remembering more atrocities. Apart from my own previously posted experiences of the "cult" (because that`s what it is and always has been);I remember having the occasion to visit a young guy who was admitted to the Psychiatric unit in the Monklands Hospital because his

Thankyou C Barb and Rensil.Have had memories stirred! Clive:- I am woman. My time in it was from 1983. My husband was there earlier. I was "given the once over" by Miss Taylor to make sure that I was "holy enough" to marry my dear husband, who was completely overtaken by them all. He was HUGELY USED to provide lifts just about every night in the week.After our "wed

my mind may be failing me slightly, but the word million was in the amount. Whether it was half a million, a million itself or one and a half? but I am looking back information that my husband has on record and will clarify soon. Many other posters must remember too. We weren`t asked to fill in paper our vote. It was done by a show of hands. The person I most thought of and got comfort from at th

Why is no one from Struthers strong enough to even attempt a reply to anything on this forum? So many chances given to them. It is an absolute disgrace what is and has been going on for years(OVER 30 IN MY EXPERIENCE). It is despicable what has happened to people from all walks of life because of their genuine desire to walk a Christian life. I hope people who read this forum realise the

I think the sad thing is that Mr B did what he did. I dont believe God told him to do so. He wouldn`t have. I was there with my husband in Greenock on the night he divulged to the congregation. We remember the shock.. the sheer disbelief that one so "profoundly God Led" could have done what he did. But... he was human. Not led by God in this misdemeanour , surely.Many houses were sold o

The recent newly designed handbook for Cedars by Fraser Speirs only attempts to describe the qualifications of a handful of the teachers. There are others teaching there who are not GTC registered . As a teacher of many years, in a Secondary school, I understand that Private School staff may not need to be registered .There is a register open to the general public.

The whole Cedars school thing has been something that I feel really strongly about. If you google the staff list you can see that they are mostly related. ?? If you then google the GTC {GENERAL TEACHING COUNCIL} YOU are free to check the register and you can not those who are NOT REGISTERED. I understand that being a Private school, they may not need to do this.... but even so? Also everyone know

It has been a while since I posted and I am so very glad to catch up on recent news from new posters. It is encouraging that people are questioning. I am also delighted that good memories and good people are remembered. I suppose it depends on how and why one came upon Struthers. I have no good memories. Only negatives. Still I try to understand and follow what was actually going on. In my 50s no

dear Cbarb, I am more than aware that there are many genuine people seeking God and faithful to Him in Struthers. My husband and I were two of them. Our problem was with the interference/ bullying/ and control of the leaders. DR in particular and also MB Please read my earlier posts. Re women being teachers. I can speak from thirty one years teaching experience. A good teacher does not bully

Hi Clive and welcome Calvary. I believe that the vulnerability of human beings is played on and abused in Struthers. I believe that people can make themselves feel anything if they put their mind to it .Mind over matter, all human beings have probably experienced well-being and a sense of pleasure especially if they practice quiet meditation. Very often in Cumbernauld if you were seen to "r
