Filipino megachurch pastor is charged with orchestrating sex-trafficking ring where he recruited girls as young as 12 to work in his US homes and forced them into sex, telling them it was 'God's will'
From the Article:
The pastor allegedly forced the women and girls to regularly engage in sexual acts with him in what he called the 'night duty.' He and his accomplices told the woman and girls that obeying Quiboloy was 'God's will' and that 'night duty' was a privilege and a means to salvation, court records allege.
From the church's website:
Entering into the Covenant Partnership means stepping into the fulfillment of the Father’s glorious promise of a blessed life; the same life Jacob had in his time when he committed himself into a lifetime vow of partnership with the Almighty Father
In little more than three decades, the KJC has reached great milestones, conquering country after country with the message of enlightenment and salvation. Currently, we have six million solid Kingdom citizens in 200 countries and 2,000 cities all over the world.
The Almighty Father’s Kingdom can now be found here on Earth for He has produced a Nation wherein His laws are not only written in tablets of stone but engraved in the hearts and minds of His people.
From his website:
Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, the Appointed Son of God, is here so that we can restore ourselves into becoming sons and daughters of the Almighty God again [A49: again?] by obedience to His Words [A49: which words?]. This spiritual adoption brings us to a new level of relationship with the Father, where He elevates us into being sons and daughters.
“I am here to deliver this message to the fallen humanity. Join me in becoming adopted sons and daughters of God. Only sons and daughters will inherit heaven as a spiritual family of heirs.”
– Pastor Apollo Quiboloy
Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy was the first man to be called by the Almighty Father to the true and genuine repentance. He was the first man to have endured all the fiery trials of persecution and hardship and to have overcome them all without breaking his covenant with the Father. He was the first man to finally eject the serpent seed, breaking the chain of sin by his absolute obedience to the Father’s will... It is for this reason that the Almighty Father anointed him and made him His Appointed Son in these last days.
Core Message: THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM. Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
[Irony o' the Day... in his "true repentance" attack on the work of the Savior, he quotes John.]
Only then can we be called a son or a daughter of the Almighty Father (John 1:12).
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Without repentance, everything else — all religious doctrines, traditions, the casting out of demons, all prophesy, every grand and lavish cathedral built, and every man-made by-law — is moot.
Dear Pastor... John has a lot of words... one word it does not have is "repent." The verse in John 1 requires that one "receive" him. This is bookended by John 20.
And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and by believing you may have life in His name.
That is not "the gospel of the Kingdom." We do not preach the Gospel of the Kingdom in this Age. That gospel is a message for Israel alone (Matthew 4, Matthew 10, etc.). In this age, we preach the gospel of the grace of God apart from the Law. And our hope is not of the earth.
This man has more problems than just believing he is "the first man to be called by the Almighty Father to the true and genuine repentance." His problem is rooted in the same dirt that almost all heresies are rooted in: the belief that God's earthly Kingdom is the promise of this Age.
We must still wait for the trial and examine the evidence for against the man, but any who believes he can please God in the flesh or that he can eradicate completely his old nature is doomed to one of two ends: pride or despair.
