The worst cult in the area for mindless support is the Democratic party. They really demand complete agreement with all their efforts or demonize any thinking person who doesn't agree with the destructive path they have for the nation. Anyone else heard of this cult of the pathetic. I understand they have minions of the devil that must join something called a union.

I LIVE IN NEW JERSEY, SO I DON'T FELLOWSHIP AT HAPPAY VALLEY. I KNOW THE TEACHING OF HAPPY VALLEY CHURCH. IT IS A BIBLE BASED CHURCH AND NOT A CULT. EVERYTHING THEY PREACH IS BASED ON THE BIBLE. THOSE PEOPLE THAT SAY HAPPY VALLEY IS A CULT THEY ARE THEMSELVES MEMBERS OF CULTS SINCE THEY DON'T BASE MOST OF THIER TEACHING FROM THE BIBLE.

I THINK THE LADY DID A GOOD THING TO ACCEPT WHAT HAPPY VALLEY TEACHES, AND I AM GLAD THAT SHE NOW WEARS LIK A CHRISTIAN LADY.
LONG TROUSERS BELONG TO MEN WHILE DRESSES BELONG TO WOMEN.

HAPPY VALLEY CHURCH PREACHES AGAINST GAY WHICH THE BIBLE ALSO CONDEMNS. MANY DENOMINATIONS INCLUDING BAPTIST CHURCH THINK THAT A MAN CAN MARRY ANOTHER MAN OR LIVE A SODOMITE LIFE - eg BISHOP EDDY LONG WHO IS A BAPTIST.

I HAVE READ MORE ABOUT WILLIAM BRANHAM, WHAT I CAN SAY ABOUT HIM IS THAT HE WAS A MAN OF GOD. A TRUE CHRISTIAN DOES NOT WORSHIP BRANHAM BUT RESPECT HIM AS A PROPHET FROM GOD SINCE GOD VINDICATED WHAT HE TAUGHT TO BE FROM HIM HENCE FOUND IN THE BIBLE.

Dear Friend, I know of this church you speak of, I do not live there nor do I attend that church, but I do know a number of people that attend there. It is NOT a cult! The ladies of this church are NOT made to wear skirts, that is their choice, the pastor doesn't make anyone do anything, he just preaches The Word of God, yes they follow the teachings of William Marrion Branham, who is a Prophet of God. Why don't you go see for yourself! Everyone makes their own choices in life, seems like your friend is trying to better herself so that she is ready when The Lord comes!!! If you go to visit this church just keep an open mind and think positive, isn't that what you would tell someone if they came to your church?

Okay this is from a year ago. but I saw this when i typed in my church's name.(I go to church there)
the people there aren't weird and wacky nor crazy. The woman don't go by the "law" as you say, because they have to, but because they want to. We do cut our finger nails. The woman don't cut their hair. They do wear dresses and dress modestly, but they don't dress like they're from the 50's.
before you judge someone, get to know them(:
and as far as what we believe. It's from the Bible. yes it's that simple.

There is a difference in hating and finding them immoral and contrary to religious doctrine. But don't worry the PC courts and politicians love gays and hate Christians so you guys are winning.

The topic is about a cult-like church. Not fashions, but a preacher who instructs women and brainwashes the men since childhood. This is a serious issue.
Dear sir, I am not a member of Happy Valley, I'm not even a resident of Tennessee or any surrounding states, having said that;if you are a prof then you have been educated, I am not. However i believe that we have an absolute standard by which we live and conduct our lives. That absolute is the Bible, if you believe the truths and evidence contained in it then you will read and study to prove whether these things are true or not. Living modestly, not doing the things that are accepted as common everyday occurrences, accepting those things does not make those things right or proper. the topic is about what people believe to be truth. those and all truths are contained in the Scriptures search them for yourself that you will know, don't take anyone's word for it,
"38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. 39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41 I receive not honour from men. 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you."
John 5:38-42
I write this in peace that you will study these things and not be as most others that they accuse and are opinionated without knowledge. study it out!
"16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. 17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. 19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. 20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,"

Reading all this reminded me exactly why I do not go to church
Sadly you are right, with all the infighting and bickering it is a sad state of affairs. However burying your head in the sand doesn't help you grow or learn the truth. It only keeps you isolated from your fears.
"38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. 39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41 I receive not honour from men. 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. 47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?" John 5:38-47
"11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:"
Eph 4:11-15

18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.

Wait so when did doing what the Bible says make you part of a cult? Do yall even know what a cult is and have you ever read about William B aside from what your church may or may not teach? You need to do research before you accuse people of being in a cult. I am not siding with either argument I just stating that the Bible is the trure inspired word of God. Does God change?

Anyone who calls themselves a prophet...that' really your first clue that it is more like a cult. This gives the impression that god is not sending him the message but is speaking directly through him, thus giving him a more authority.(see David Koresh)) God is much more concerned with ones salvation than appearances. These "prophets" keep hold of their congregations by imposing rules and regulations than giving the word.
But David Koresh couldn't back up what he believed completely with the bible. His message wasn't vindicated. Bro. Branham's message was vindicated by the word of God and proven to be correct. We are not brainwashed as some has stated but proud to take the word of God and line ourselves up with it. It is only for the elected of God and those that have turned away have done so because they did not believe. That is their right to do so but should they put down those who choose to believe and carry on. I feel for those families who are having problems. I made some mistakes when i first was saved because of not understanding the word of God completely. As a newborn in Christ, we are learning as we go....sometimes we make mistakes and fall but just as a newborn baby we get up and keep trying until we learn how to walk. May God help those who have left the truth and find what will satisfy their soul.

If people who are slandering these people are baptist I'm sure glad I'm not one. To be a Christian is to be like Christ. I've not seen a post yet that promotes his love . I'm ashamed of you all. And who ever you was mocking speaking in tongues . To defame the Holy Ghost is very dangerous.. Be he assured God is not mocked

That is right the Bible says that the only sin that cannot be forgiven is the sin of blaspheming the Holy Ghost so you better be careful.

No. Only God can hate. He hates with perfect hatred because he's God. True bible based Christians do believe that homosexuality is wrong however. It is in the holy scriptures. Just sayin.

You don't take the sins of one person and say the whole group is like that! What a stupid statement and shows your ignorance! What's creepy about being modest and decent? It's funny because I think short shorts, low cut shirts and tattoos and piercings are totally creepy!
