The Foursquare religion is not even a religion. It is a cult stemming way back to the flambouyant and fradulant Aimee McPherson who founded it. This church isn't even Christian, they insult them as a matter of fact. They are a full fledge bona fide mind controlling cult. Do a google search "Foursquare cult." They have cutsey names like Coastlands who recently took down their real name "Foursquare" off their entrance, perhaps after their leaders lost 18 mil. in a pyramid scam. Check out everybody, but particularly religious non-profits before you let them impose on your children.

Oh please - your lack of knowledge about the Coastlands is really obvious from your post. I've been attending Coastlands for quite a long time and I would like to invite you to attend one service and then tell us all how "this church isn't even Christian, they insult them as a matter of fact. They are a full fledge bona fide mind controlling cult."
Services are at 5:00 and 7:00 on Saturday nights and 10:00am on Sundays. Who was it who said:
"There is one principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior to investigation." Hint - it wasn't me.

Back to the issue at hand. Kids haveing fun.I have volunteered there at VBS for 20 years. I never fail to come home with-out a new respect and bigger heart for the privelage to work with these great kids. They come from all walks of life and share the most common demonatior. We are all loved and learn more and more about how valuable each and every person is. Yes, we are thank full to have an understanding of who Jesus is and what he represents to us. It sounds like some of you have been really hurt or God has been misrepresented to you. When they get older they too will chose what they want to believe. In the mean time, we are having a Great Time and I love seeing their smiling faces.(:)

The link about this organization's cult status is truly eye-opening. If the Senile were a decent paper, they would be exposing this, rather than writing this free advertising junk.

God forbid! Let the kids have fun already. It's summer! They are obviously having a good time with other kids from all walks of life. There is so much hatred and violence in the world, would it be possible to let the kids just play and be silly and joyful and enjoy themselves? It's NOT necessary to ruin their fun too. If you don't want your kids to go-- don't send them. VBS or any religeous kids event is for the kids. Don't make it about you.

Whatever they believe I wish they would do it quietly. I live in the neighborhood and Christian music blaring all day is irritating. Their use of microphones blares their crap throughout the neighborhood. Jesus loves you when you are quiet!

Grew up in Foursquare Movement and will NEVER consider them a church, you could lived and died in the movement and they would have NEVER gone through the Bible completely once. Media and Men in Christendom, like David Wilkerson, Dr. James Dobson, J. Lee Grady, George Barna, Dr. Ron Enroth, Mike Bickle, Rick Joyner etc., know I want Jack Hayford and his minions in prison and why, very evil organization. More later.

Who is Bill Hud by the way and why is his SBCglobal.net site defunct?-

The Foursquare wanted Richard Rossi to lie about doing a film on Aimee and when he wouldn't be bought off for millions they threatened him. A Dead Person told Aimee to start the foursquare movement and per a pastor it's in one of her books she had mental breakdowns (for a dead religion) and had sex with both guys she ran off with! Why do we NOT know the foundatiosn of the churches we are in and whose paying their bills. One denomination (won't name) hopefully Charisma will expose a Satanic Family pays their bills when they can't. Is your pastor per men really a rat and or a shark? Ask where the money goes and follow that trail?

I like how we let leadership beat us up, lie to us, keep us sick and in bondage and coming back for more each week and we let them and we give them money to do it to us and our children-how sad.

Are you sacrifcing your children on the foursquare mormon altar-no different, same with AG's (assassins of god-their god), calvary chapel, vineyard, they're all the same. Very sad. Who do they help but themselves being the spiritual vampires and spiritual cannibals that they are!
Then you raise your children to keep the dynasty going and hope it doesn't die nasty. They mass produce matriarchal-bitches very unhappy women, discontent with life and family/spouse who pays the bills. Different type of abortion in the church. Start researching. Give the unsaved like Larry Flynt, Eminem, Marilyn Manson a reason to come to the church, for what to get brains, time, money sucked out. Very sad, so-called pious-self-rightouse-religious christians think they're better than everyone else (used to behave that way), LOVE EVERYONE AND LET GOD CLEAN THEM UP!-deal with your evil church leadership that's taking a lot of people to hell with them and how many are really warlocks/witches=The Unholy Anointing by H.A. Lewis and He Came to Set the Captives Free by Dr. Rebecca Brown, M.D.

God created all matter in 4 days a few thousand years ago. 2 people were there at the very beginning and they spawned all of us. But then the jews implanted million year old proto-humanoid bones in the ground to trick us.

200 people confronted the bay area head of foursquare churches in the 80's about abuse and the "methods" they used.They wanted my fiance and I to break-up for a year.They did this to many couples to show loyalty to the pastor.Those people left the church.Worst church I ever attended.
They are a straight-up cult.I told them I would not be breaking up with my fiance.I can't believe they are still in "business".The head of foursquare sent everyone a letter and said"we do not find any fault in Daniel Brown".
They didn't want to lose any of the money the church was bringing in.
