I am free at last! The longer My family and I are away from this manipulative cult the better our life has become.

The teachings that the cult leader follows is truly his own and they are not from the Bible. I can only warn you to beware of Tony Cunningham and the Radiant Life cult people that follow him.

1000's of people have been hurt!

100's of people defrauded and bankrupted!

You have been warned.

I totally agree. Beware of the fluff and cheerleading. This organization and Tony Cunningham is manipulative, deceiving and a cult. hundreds of people have exposed this organization and they have left their old building and set up shop on 44th street and at the Guild theatre. Shame on St. Hope Academy and Kevin Johnson for allowing this at the Guild Theater. Beware neighbors around these areas. They will try to draw you in and are desperate for money.

It is so sad that you are filled with so much hate. I am not sure what version of the bible you have but God is not about slander and malice. He commands us to love. Please stop spewing hate it is getting old!!!

Therefore, for example, if you had a family member living in Jonestown following jim jones, we should accept it and love jim for what he is doing for God? If I recall, Jesus was not happy with the religious people that were not representing God correctly. Actually by warning other's, we are the ones loving.

LovedbyGod....What a stupid,self riteous,bunch of religious mumbo jumbo you have said. There is no hate just warnings to people that this organization is a cult. Wondering what bible you are reading to be a smartass and judge peoples hearts...People are sick of seeing this cult recruit members, manipulate people, and twist the bibles teachings. It will never get old if a person is saved from this mess and finds freedom. And we are all loved by God. God hates the evil that is being perpetrated by this cult however. with many chuckles, BEWARE OF AN ORGANIZATION THAT CALLS ITSELF RADIANT LIFE CHURCH. IT IS A CULT THAT HAS BEEN EXPOSED.

You are playing the Victim card here! This is the same pattern of behavior that the Obama administration keeps making when people disagree with their Marxist agenda. This administration and political party come out calling people who disagree with their spending and Health care proposals as being RACISTS!

And that is all you can do is sit there and call any one pointing out the obvious as being haters bitter or non forgiving.
I believe that cult leaders like Tony Cunningham of Radiant Life are breading mind numb robotic sycophants, who are taught to toss out common logic and reasoning and accept there authority and teachings along with all there mangled theology as the "NEW TRUTH."

What I mean by mangled theology and aberrant teaching is this; the further we are from God the less truth we will have in our life. All of us have bad theology in our life, Bad theology stems from our sin or toleration to sin. How do we know what sin is the more and more we trust God, the more we begin to know and understand His nature, His truths, His laws, His love etc. Theology is what defines our belief system. Knowing that God is perfect in every way, that He is truth, and the Bible is His inherent word, changes our approach to how we read the bible. Our faith by trusting Him, our prospective of life falls more and more in line with His truths and principles. A person who is further from God will not have a strong since of right and wrong will have be more passive tolerant wishy-washy approach to life issues. This person will have aberrant toleration's to non biblical beliefs. They will rely upon their own works to justify themselves and they will rely upon there own self protection attitudes especially when confronted with an opposing or corrective belief. They refuse to debate because they are afraid to be exposed.

Here is an example, Turning Point Church of Marysville adopted Tony Cunningham’s curriculum for SOMA North West (School of Ministry Arts) and this was part of my original line of questioning with elder-director Kim Barns. Immediately she put up a defensive regarding the aberrant teachings and challenges to test Tony’s teachings against the word of God. She demonizing me with the staff and calling me Bitter and Unforgiving. These people are unwilling to debate because they can not break the arguments!

This is how Tony teaches.
He takes a concept like....POLYGAMY and goes to the bible to find any supporting verses that would support his belief system i.e see Tony's "Heart of David" class, this helps set up his twisted theology idolizing the life of David over Christ. Tony also lives in California and Polygamy is not legally accepted. So he goes back to the bible to see if there are any other verses that offer a similar life style. Ah he finds some verse where the apostle Paul refers to Timothy as a Son. So now Tony takes this verse and mangles it’s original intent to malign with his aberrant teaching to justify his Spiritual Daughter living with him rejecting and cutting off all communication with her natural, God loving parents.

For any one to disagree with or call them out, we are demonized as being bitter and unforgiving.
Well I’m sorry Tony if the truth hurts, it has nothing to do with bitterness or unforgiveness it all about the truth!

Like that pedophile lurking in my neighborhood prying upon little children, your hopping that you are not exposed!

And you dare to say to those who oppose your teachings as being “unforgiving!!!”

Your abhorrent Theologies tarnish and discredit My Lord Jesus and your teachings dishonor his testimony!

Sorry to disappoint you Radiant life and Mr. Cunningham but you disgrace the witness of Jesus.

The Accusations about Radiant Life Cult are Real!!!

Just do a Google search on Radiant Life Church there are over 2000 postings from people on the “Rick Ross Cult Education Destructive Churches Forum.
Real people have shared there testimonies of events that brought them to the realization that Tony has no regard as to how many people get hurt along the way, as he says it “THEY ARE NECESSARY CAUSALITIES.”
The testimonies are from Real people who have experience first hand the reckless arrogant teachings of Tony Cunningham.
Meanwhile this pastor continues to masquerades around like he is some kind of an apostle and prophet.

Radiant Life Elders and Tony have deceived many people and spiritually hurt even more! They go on about life as if nothing has ever happened turning a blind eye. The leadership at this church has this mind set;
“Blind eyes are weak,
blind eyes are cruel,
look out for number one,
survival's the rule”

YES Spiritual Abuse is real!
And it is serious problem at Radiant Life church of Sacramento.

I look at Spiritual Abuse and Clergy Abuse just as serious as Sexual Abuse!

Each one of us is an eternal being; I believe that is VERY SERIOUS when someone starts messing with our Faith. Twisting the representation of the Truth. That ultimately effects ones eternal destination and relationship with God. In other words, a false theology will lead you to hell and a right theology will grant you eternal life with God. Hell is the absence of God and I do not want that for any one.

Tony Cunningham the pseudo pastor at Radiant Life Cult, you have stepped in to that dangerous arena of messing with peoples lives, coercing and manipulating with there finances, and most seriously you have messed with there faith. You have hurt all to many people and discarded them like use up toilet paper. Then you come back with that cunning arrogant attitude of yours, you have excused them as necessary causalities to advance your (EVIL) agenda!

Tony this is not the Art of War....am convinced that you have become an evil wicked man. You have been given plenty of time to repent but your pride and arrogance is driving you to hurt more people.

The Emotional affairs your are having with the women in your congregation are wicked!
The fruit of this life style divides these women from their submission to their husbands or parents and is the reason you have so many men afraid to stand up to you because they are afraid if they do they will also loose there wife what little they still have.

This is the spirit of Jezebel and Tony you are manifesting the Jezebel Spirit and the teachings of the Nicolatians.

Hey what about...when Tony announced that God has instructed him to start a orphanage in the Philippines then he collects a large sum of money $50,000 then does nothing to carry out that instruction from ah you know who.......4+ years later according to Tony, God changed his mind? and now wants him to go to Africa?
WOW That sounds similar to the Mormon's when there "God" back in the 30"s & 40's would not allow African Americans to join or be bishops in there cult. Then in the early 60's the Mormon's God changed his mind and allowed African Americans to join there cult.

According to the bible God is unchanging. His laws and principles are the same yesterday today and tomorrow.

Mal. 3:6 The Lord does not change.

Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.(Heb. 13:8)

Ps. 119:89
God's word is settled in heaven; it will not change.

Ecc. 3:14
Whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to or taken from whatever God does (cf. Deut. 4:2; Rev. 22:18-19).

Heb. 6:17
God's counsel is immutable (i.e., does not change).

James. 1:17
There is no variation or shadow of turning with God. There is absolutely no change with God.

I attended Radiant Life Church with my family for about 3 years. I was getting sick and tired of seeing people leave the church then hearing from the leadership in the church slander or demonize the people for leaving. I eventually moved over to the Open Door Community Church.

It is sad to see how this church as fallen away from the word of God and become a place to worship Tony.

Don't forget the fourth commandment, to keep the Sabbath (Saturday) just as Jesus did.

United States

#23 Oct 28, 2009
kak your right about keeping the Sabbath,
but don't get all hung up on the day (Saturday) Everyday should be The Lord's Day" and a Matthew 12:10-14 or Mark 2:24-28 backs up that statement.
But lets keep on subject here, when a church like Radiant Life takes any day and uses it to manipulate people to work out there salvation and by pass repentance you end up with a lot of false salvation's. Matthew 4:17 "From that time on Jesus began to preach, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."
The problem is exemplified by the leadership at Radiant Life Church when the leadership does not and will not own up to the responsibility of their sins, be it through their false teachings or manipulation of peoples time & money. They keep on hurting people believing that no mater what they say or do, be it good or bad, God will work it out and they think they are still forgiven. Its like they have a license to keep on sinning. they have turned there pastor Tony into a man to be worshiped. that is what makes this a cult.
they keep breaking the 2nd and 3rd commandments.
"You shall have no other gods before me.
"You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments. Exodus 20:3-6

Maybe this will help others to come forward who were hesitant and prevent others from getting involved in this destructive cult.
