The one thing any new ntcc member or bs student should know is that your only use and purpose within this group is to recruit as many other people as you can for the prosperity of the leaders.
I will never forget a pastor's class I attended. I had been in Graham several years and was beginning to get very disillusioned by everything I saw. Then in this class I heard Davis say, the one thing that pleases me most is when I hear that these women spend their day knocking on doors. That's what makes me happy, he said.
I couldn't believe what I was hearing! I was looking at what is supposed to be the epitomy of Christianity in the flesh himself and the most ultimate thing he was telling me I could do for God was to knock on doors inviting people to his church. This is the pinnacle of what I as a woman could do for God. Unbelievable.
Anyone involved at any level with ntcc needs to know the only value they have in the eyes of the leadership is how many people you can recruit. Whatever ideas, dreams, notions, past experiences, etc you have of Christianity can not be applied to ntcc. It is only about recruiting and money. You will be used as a tool. When you have a legitimate need or question, you will be met with a cold blank stare. (I've been there.)
Show me in the bible or anywhere else where Jesus got fat and rich off of the people he saved.
Stop and think about the many non-ntcc people in the world who do selfless acts and spend their lives serving others. Think about the spirit in which they serve. Think about how different it is from the recruit-or-die-and-go-to-hell place you are in now.
I hope those who go to the conference won't spend it beating themselves up and wondering why they can't make the program work. I hope by some miracle their minds will be opened up, their perspective widened from the pinhead it has been limited to, and they will begin asking questions and realize God is more loving and compassionate than what they've been experiencing.
It is okay to just sit and talk to someone about God. That does count. In ntcc it only counts if you get them to a service.
Think about all of the charitable programs that other churches are a part of. The opportunities to serve others, build relationships, and just show people that they count as a human being. All of this is a waste of time to ntcc.
There are absolutely no programs like this in ntcc. I wish I would have known before I applied for BS that I would only be taught how to knock on a door. I had much larger visions than that and was greatly disappointed.
I just hope people will read this and not let their life and dreams and vision of God be limited to what ntcc says.
