The increasingly frightening story of Bishop Brian Tamaki of Auckland New Zealand who’s the “spiritual son” of Eddie Long of Atlanta. Another sign pointing towards the return of the Lord.
PJ Miller has an excellent run down on his post Destiny Church, A cult in the making.
Religion News blog also covers how Tamaki’s service where 700 men in the church swore allegiance to him and are now wearing covenant rings as a symbol of their “irrevocable, undissolvable oath of commitment” to him.
RNB reported last December the cult-like church announced plans to create a ‘holy city’ for its followers. At the time, Tamaki reportedly urged church members to sell their homes around the country and move to his promised land. The church has denied this, but Tamaki’s 3 million dollar home is up for sell. The church refused to say why.
What do you think is really behind the “spiritual son, spiritual daughter” thing going on in the church?

But is this the same concept and precept people like Eddie Long, et al are espousing?
