I remember reading a comment from a Brethren person for a Youtube clip regarding the Pentecostal teaching of mandatory requirement of tongues for believers (refer to Making tongues a mandatory requirement in order be certified as a Pentecostal). This person was saying how such Pentecostal teachers can't fool everyone to believe their false teachings. Furthermore, regarding the criticism of Pentecostals against the Brethren (in regards to their cessationalism), this person further stated that Brethren churches with intelligence and God's love would rise up. I replied to that person in the following way:
"How is that possible when they themselves are known to be sociopaths? Their entire theology is based on sociopathic ideologies like Calvinism/Free Grace theology (which promote licentiousness). Once, I heard a Brethren preacher say that the Brethren churches have a problem in them regarding their members pecking at each other like birds do. This is God's love? The Malayalee Brethren churches are also known for being hypocrites (just like other Malayalees/Indians who aren't Brethren/Christians). They love to find sins in others and then go gossip about that and bully/mistreat them (all the while preaching that everyone among them has been atoned for by Jesus' blood, they have imputed righteousness, unconditional eternal security, and the dispensation of grace in order to sin without any consequences and not be judged by God nor anyone else). Many of them are also experts at destroying people's faith in God by instilling psychological blocks in their minds by making them doubt success in their education and career. Again, how is this displaying God's love? They are a Satanic cult who have sociopathic elitists among them who love to dominate others. They act just like their real father Satan, as they also engage in trying to steal, kill, and destroy people. These sociopathic elitists can do whatever sins they want and subject everyone else to their rules and then use their doctrines (which I just mentioned above) to justify their own hypocrisy and double standards. They only apply these doctrines in practice to themselves, not to those who they bully within their own churches. Satan has turned them into narcissistic sociopaths (mentally abnormal people- aka antisocial personality disorder) through their carnal minded doctrines. Instead of more churches among them rising up, they need to do the Christian community a favor and dissolve as soon as possible." (end of my own quote)
The Plymouth Brethren/Kerala Brethren/Indian Brethren are guilty of using various ego defense mechanisms to form false doctrines (just like the Pentecostals do). For example, in the case of the Brethren, they project their sins (past, present, future sins) onto Christ through their doctrines of penal substitutionary atonement and imputed righteousness. This allows them to live in denial that they actually need to get rid of their sinful behavior. They rationalize and intellectualize (which are other ego defense mechanisms) licentiousness through false doctrines. Thus, they end up promoting licentiousness (which is evident in many of their churches as many of them have turned into dangerous sociopaths- people with dead consciences who have no problem in sinning). Out of Satan's hatred for Christianity, he influences carnal minded "Christians" (those who love and justify licentiousness through their doctrines) to destroy their churches as well as themselves. That's why he's the ultimate sociopath (he causes problems between people as well as get them to destroy themselves). Just look at how Satan uses sociopaths among the Brethren to attack others within their churches (refer to the Youtube clip: Fighting within a Brethren church). Refer also to my other post in which I provide my comments on this problem (Sociopaths destroy Malayalee churches). Satan markets his carnal minded/false form of Christianity to people as it appeals to their sinful nature. Just like how people market unhealthy food, sodas, etc. which destroy the body and which also appeal to man's sinful nature, in a similar way, Satan markets carnal minded Christianity to destroy both body and soul (i.e. make man subject to God's eternal punishment by not getting rid of sin from their lives, but instead deceive them to justify it through deceptive doctrines) and turn them into dangerous narcissistic sociopaths. In many of these carnal minded churches, elitism is a common factor I've been observing through their doctrines and practices (i.e. people wanting to dominate others and then using false doctrines to justify such behavior). There is absolutely no point of trying to reason with sociopathic false teachers (whether Pentecostal, Brethren or other denomination) who live in denial of the truth and instead try to force their false views onto you. You're dealing with mentally ill people (sociopaths) who will only take you around in circles (i.e. gaslight you) with their flawed logic/reasoning. They even resort to dishonest practices like ignoring/treating certain Bible passages with contempt all in order to justify their false doctrines (refer to my post Who are no longer under condemnation to eternal damnation?).
Please refer to my other post (Pastor John Lawrence: A perversion of grace and the Gospel) to see how carnal minded Christians among both Pentecostals and the Brethren pervert God's grace and forgiveness into licentiousness in order to disarm their conscience, remove both guilt and the fear of God in regards to licentiousness. When their conscience is disarmed, it creates a dead conscience in them (which is characteristic of sociopathy/antisocial personality disorder).
1 Timothy 4:1-2 (NLT):
Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons. 2 These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are dead.
