Heil Hales

From Wikipeebia; http://wikipeebia.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=568

One of the things that came out of that ACA story last night was the lingering footage the camera crew took of the Bruce Hales mansion. Reputedly costing $7 million I can see why. The driveway alone would have cost over $100,000. The wrought iron work another $50K- $70K. Which begs the question - if the Hales keep preaching that the rapture is so imminent - as they do - why do they need to live in such luxury while in their last days on earth??? Because they don't really beleive what they preach? Probably. 

That's the funny thing about these people. The last bloke had them all living in frugality in some of the worst suburbs on earth - so his 'little white envelopes' remained plump -while Hales and his troup - live the life with all the luxuries that they can lay their greedy hands on. I have also noted the Hales 'relatives'-who also have the best home in their respective assemblies. Talk about feather your own nest. 

Why can't these stupid blind Peebs see it for what it is? I mean this Hales - as opposed to his father- couldn't be more blatant about it if his name was Benny Hinn. Or Joyce Meyers. Look em up Bruce- you're in the same league. 

No wonder he wants total control over everyone's business. He likes to see where HIS money is coming from.

    1. Are you in some way trying to make the point that BDH is a pro-Christ figure? If so, I think you might be mixing up the words 'dollars' and 'deity'.

      Although if you're just looking at (a very small amount) of BDH's ministry, you may sometimes see references to the deity. I don't think it's particularly clever to take the assumption from this that he is pro-Christ, however. From my reading of the scriptures it seems one has to renounce self and ego and personal money-grubbing, to be pro-Christ.

  2. A common reaction from those who, like myself, escaped this cult is that they were brainwashed. Obviously, most do not realise this while they are still members. But the depth of the control is shocking if the brethren cannot see through BDH. He is not even bothering to be subtle. He throws his wealth, which they generate, in their faces. And they put up with it and are so completely subjugated that they continue to allow themselves to be financially fleeced and ripped off by this guy. They will do whatever he tells them without question. They accept even the most ridiculous ministry, and ministry which is directly opposed to Scripture, just because he says so. They are little more than blind obedient slaves.
    I am sure BDH holds them in complete contempt for their gutless submission to his will and laughs at them all the way to the bank. I can't blame him - they deserve to be ridiculed.
    Those who have the ability to think for themselves and remove themselves from this cult will look back in sheer disbelief that they ever went along with this exploitation. And went along with his ridiculous - but at times highly amusing! - so called ministry!!

  3. Anyone with half a brain could see that that house is not worth $7M. Honestly, some comments beggar belief.

    1. I believe it to be $12 million, as it includes land and satellite dwellings. In all respects, a cult leader's compound.

  4. I read a bit last night, Acts 28 v30

    'And he remained two whole years in his own hired lodging, and received
    all who came to him'

    If the EB think BDH is Paul, why don't they insist he lives like him
    Go into rented accommodation and receive all. Yes it says all

  5. Who cares if it's seven million, five million, three million or even a couple of million? How many furniture salesmen do you know in Sydney have that sort of money. Get off the grass peebs, think about it ....

    I can see exactly the point. Although I disagree to some extent. Hitler was probably a pro-Christian saint compared to the cult leading money grabbing elusive leader of the exclusive brethren. If only your eyes could be opened.

  7. 'Laurie...Why do you have images of Hitler'?

    Does anyone have any recent pictures of BDH to exchange them for?

    At least Hitler had the courage of his convictions to appear in public. The Australian bully doesn't.

  8. I think I understand why Laurie is displaying pictures of Hitler. B. D. Hales is not a mass murderer, and it would be very unkind to suggest that he is, but he has a few things in common with Hitler.

    Hitler was nominally a Christian, baptized, confirmed and never excommunicated. He used Christian arguments and sentiments (including love!) to support his own agenda.

    In Mein Kampf he wrote: "I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.."

    In a speech on 12 April 1922 he said, "My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God's truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice... And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.” (See The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, April 1922-August 1939, Vol. 1 pages 19-20, edited by Norman H. Baynes and published by OUP in 1942.)

    Hitler’s wicked, evil, anti-Semitism was not his own invention. It grew out of his religious background. A lot of churchgoers in Germany and Austria were seriously anti-Semitic, and so were many of their religious leaders and “great men”. If you want to see a particularly evil and influential example, read Martin Luther’s book, “On the Jews and their lies.” It is absolutely horrifying.

    So the parallel between the last few Brethren leaders and Hitler is that they have all professed to be Christians and they have all misused supposedly Christian teachings in a harmful way in order to exercise extreme control over people and to justify intolerance towards those who disagreed with them or did not submit to their authority.

    It is easy to misuse Christian teachings like this. If you construct arguments and explanations the way the Brethren do or the way Hitler did, almost anything you want to do, however selfish or harmful, can be supported by a spurious argument that pretends to be based on Christianity. Look for example at the ridiculous ways scriptures were used in an attempt to justify Jim Taylor’s appalling teachings and appalling behaviour.
