This Fellow Says ACFJ is Demonic and We are False Prophets — What do you Want to Tell Him?
UPDATE Sept 2021: I have come to believe that Jeff Crippen does not practise what he preaches. He vilely persecuted an abuse victim and spiritually abused many other people in the Tillamook congregation. Go here to read the evidence. Jeff has not gone to the people that he spiritually and emotionally abused. He has not apologised to them, let alone asked for their forgiveness.
Thanks for our readers giving us a heads up to this one-star review on Amazon (for our book Unholy Charade). This guy evidences so many of the very qualities that we write about here and that so many of you have been victimized by, I thought we would just put his review up here on the blog so you all can see it and comment. See how many abuser type tactics you can see here. And notice a very important and fundamental thing: this guy would claim to be a Christian. So many of these kind wear wool, don’t they. [trigger warning: victim blaming and false accusations of psychological illness]
Here you go :
While there are legitimate situations where real abuse is taking place, unfortunately many women use Jeff Crippen’s book, “abuse” and “domestic violence” as a tool to demonize men to gain advantage in custody disputes and assert dominance and control in a relationship. My experience has been that “unhappy”, histrionic and delusional individuals gravitate towards this type of material because it gives them a sense of power and control and feeds the individual’s neurosis. Often times these women are suffering from acute psychological disorders and unfortunately this “abuse victim” worldview is very appealing and is used as a tool to legally abuse and inflict damage on their spouse.
Jeff Crippen has every mark of a false prophet as the Gospels describe in Matthew 7:15. Crippen even goes as far as challenging the inherency of scripture in Malachi 2:16. Crippen’s worldview is so dangerous because it is especially appealing to the victim mentality in this culture and appears hopeful to individuals going through a hard time in their marriage to read something that “biblically” pits them as the victim and gives them a weapon to use to clobber their spouse with. This is not the Gospel, and this is not following Jesus. For those that are really in serious danger, please get help. For the 90% of other folks struggling in a hard marriage, avoid this book and its groupies like the plague. This along with other demonic material that has crept its way into the church needs to be exposed for what it is, “Skubala.”
