Suliasi Kurulo & Idolatry

Suliasi Kurulo is the senior pastor of World Harvest Centre based in Suva, Fiji. He is also the leader of CMF International or Christian Missionary Fellowship International. I attended his main church in Suva when I was living in Fiji. There was many things I saw that did not make me at ease. However, for reasons that wouldn’t be right in this article, I had to attend the services at least on Sunday morning.

Coming at the services as someone with a divinity degree and a undergraduate in Evangelism; I was not some native guy that just takes every fad in churches and slap “God’s pattern” on it. I question things in churches. I question everything. The bible tells us to do so. Pastors are to subject to the people they serve; not the people subject to the pastor they serve!

In alot of ways, it is just Rhema Bible Church but without Kenneth Hagin and a decade too late. It was much the ministry style I saw in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma back in the 1990’s as a teenager. A few cultural differences but that is about it. The same give everything you have and worship your pastor to get prosperity. I reject it then and I reject it now.




Suliasi Kurulo is the man of God

If you think this is very dangerous theology to stand on, you are right. However, CMF International has built the ministry on this questionable doctrine. Most pastors that was involved in it has repented and publicly stated it was not a New Testament dynamic. Suliasi Kurulo still teaches it and encourages it among his leaders.

Back in the Word of Faith movement, you would hear that you should not question the “man of God.” In him, you found your deliverance and your healing. The problem with these teachings was most, if not all, pastors are not prophets and none of them are living in the Old Testament. Today, all believers are the man (or woman) of God.

You do not attract God’s blessing from giving to a man, buying him a car, a house, or anything of the like. The blessing of the Lord is only attracted in the presence of the Holy Spirit. There is no poverty in God’s presence. There is poverty in the presence of Suliasi Kurulo.

This type of teaching are all by dead in America’s churches. We have long repented of them and have returned the biblical emphasis on the presence of God, not the presence of a leader. However, word must travel slow in nations like Fiji Islands. Several major ministries are still teaching doctrines from the 1980’s that are misunderstood and some of them were just wrong, to be honest.

It is time we take some truths from the Word of Faith movement, check them out biblically, and apply them. Not everything was right but alot of it was. Take what was right and travel following the fire of God to what is the current emphasis of the Spirit of God.




Suliasi Kurulo is money hungry

I remember this more than anything. The emphasis on building, vehicles and money for the pastor was out of this world. It was more extreme than anything I saw in Tulsa and that is making a statement. Oral Roberts got this way and it almost destroyed his ministry too. City of Faith, once a medical center is now just an office building that was sold off for peanuts. However, that was pale compared to Suliasi Kurulo.

Every year, they have some crazy fundraiser that is only at least a million dollars and the church is expected to give him the money or they are bad Christians. They zone off the city and each zone is given a number they are expected to raise. Many of the members are completely gripped with fear so they suffer so the “man of God” can be blessed.

Nevermind that Fiji is one of the poorest countries in the Pacific and that because of unstable governments, the Fijian Dollar has completely tanked. Forget that most Fijians can’t even afford to fly to New Zealand or Australia. You can also forget that the ones with jobs make about $1.20 an hour. I find that few Fijians had any type of extra income or any types of savings. They are not prepared for a rainy day.

That does not matter to Suliasi Kurulo. He is flying all over the world. He is chatting with publishers for a book he wants to write (to generate more money for him). He is relaxing at a resort in the Yasawa Islands group.




Fear is never of the Holy Spirit

Much of the questionable doctrine coming out of CMF International is based in the Old Testament, a covenant that we do not live under and the Cross of Christ fulfilled. Under the New set of rules, there is NO fear, condemnation and shame for those in Christ Jesus.

You have no reason to fear a man like Suliasi Kurulo. From God’s point of view, you are the same: a person that came to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. You are on a equal pane with him. He has nothing. Only the Spirit of God can touch you, heal you, deliver you, and transform you. The “anointing” is the Holy Spirit. He will come directly to you if you ask.

There is no reason to believe that giving money to a man will make God want to give you more. Giving does release blessing but proper giving. Giving to Suliasi Kurulo does nothing for anyone but Suliasi Kurulo. Find a ministry that really is focused on helping the poor in Fiji and are doing great things for the Kingdom, not building their own kingdom.

Anytime that a pastor is more well known than the ministry he leads, you should run as fast as you can. God wants to be the One known, not a pastor. He is the one that wants to be made famous, not a pastor. It is time we think this, Suliasi Kurulo.

Of course your own church may have already built many more than CMFI, and of course you may have already did a search of the Fiji Government Register of Companies office in Suva before spewing in this blog. Of course you may have seen/read in the Fiji and International Media that these CMFI Supermarket was one of the first after FOUR hours of the Winston had packed hundreds of food packs for the cyclone victims..and of course you Chuch beat CMFI to this too.
      AND OF COURSE YOU SOVITA MAY JUST BE A MISINFORMED AND MAY NEED HELP FROM CMFI!

    Well, that happened to Swaggart and his Ministries, just an additions to those that have fallen before him.
    Jesus was mild and Humble throughout his Life.
    He Lived and dined with Normal People and was always available when needed by the need’s.
    Today its more comfortable to have a meeting with God than Trying to meet your Pastors.
    We use to Run to our Churches to Pray Secretly for Our Needs and when in Discomfort, to seek Comfort and assistance from the Almighty. Now it aint anymore, the burdens our Churches needs from Us is Better for the Wild Bulls of the Pampass to Shoulder them. People strive from dusk to Dawn to Earn a Living just to Put a Decent Meal on the Table. Future, with the little they Earn..!!! Surviving the next day is the Future for them everyday !
    The Only Difference with this Pastors Today is they Want to be Treated Like Kings and Queens. They Preach about Peace and Love from their Lips and Actioned exactly the Opposite of What they Preach.

    This is the wind of doctrine which blows into the church today called the prosperity gospel.Pastors are hammering their congregation to give more money to the church for God will also bless them material things of this world.We are being taken on a guilt trip if we don’t give as much for we will not receive any blessing.We have not stopped and realised the greatest blessing of all in the scriptures.God in His grace has given us His only Son the Lord Jesus Christ.Through faith in Him we are declared right and reconciled with God.Rom.5:1-5.The blessing we receive in the material things of this world is secondary.First and foremost we are to seek His kingdom and righteousness and all things will be added.
    In addition how is it possible for men to go with condition to this great God and that is he will bless us if we give more.He might not give it to you because you have different intention and may not be His will.

    Dear Peter

    There are a number of issues you raised which needs correction. Firstly the way you described yourself as “not a native…” reflects the typical non Pacific superior attitude that we native Fijians have to put up with from the likes of you. If you really are a Christian who loves Jesus genuinely, please show some respect for us native Fijians. We are not as stupid as you may think.
    Secondly Fiji’s economy is the second most thriving Pacific economy after PNG. We have the most skilled, diverse and educated workforce in our region. Finally where did you obtain your average hourly rate for the Fiji workforce from? I did not see a single citation in your writing so I was unable to verify your sources of information. I expected a better researched article from someone with a qualification like you. I think you need to repent for holding such demeaning views of us native Fijians! You are no better than our racist colonisers from the past.

    Respectfully

    I have to respectfully disagree categorically.

    Your article is an opinion piece at best and caries little to no weight in terms or reporting actual facts – no testimonials, no data, to support your piece.

    Also, for a person holding a doctorate in divinity, maybe you should re-visit the words of Jesus which says –

    “…if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.” (Matthew 18:15-17)

    So on the basis of Jesus very words, please brother – did you 1). Raise this privately? 2). Escalate it with the support of further witnesses and 3). Raise it with the church?

    You fail to remember, that even with your doctorate, the protocols of the kingdom need to be followed with respect.

    Further, given that, as earlier stated, your piece fails to provide any supporting data or testimonial, you could easily be classed as a false witness.

    Two of the six things God hates – (Proverbs 6: 19) – “A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.”

    Please, my request as your brother in Christ, kindly refrain from posting baseless opinions on your weblog that could potentially classify you as a heretic.

    I’m not sure why the parallel with RBC Tulsa. Perhaps your teenage perceptions differ from my own experiences. I think you’d would find the leadership there would have similar concerns- in fact I know they would.
    NB. Kenneth E Hagin was never the pastor of RBC Tulsa and rarely (if ever?) spoke in church services there.

      Rhema is a gathering place for people in the Word of Faith movement; ORU (and Victory) were a gathering place for people in the Abundant Life movement. I went to ORU for seminary.

      On a sidenote, Kenneth Hagin Jr was (and maybe is) the pastor there and Daddy Hagin would speak at least a few times a year. It was there that he broke his glasses acting like a fool.

    I am a member of a cmf congregation n I believe u do not understand our church vision n that is we exist to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ.to train n to encourage believers to develop a loving caring relationship amongst themselves n to put world mission as our priority…having fundraising n building supermarkets it’s not for pastor suli but it’s for the reaching of the unreached people of the earth n for sending missionaries to the mission field…all this things we are doing is the will of God…bro peter,learn to live a quiet life n mind your own business…God bless….

    I agree and disagree with the article. I have attended services here and also follow live or replayed tv broadcast and I love the passion these people have. Yes it is true that a lot of preaching is done on the topic of sowing/ giving to reap a harvest. I do a lot of traveling around Fiji and as part of our calling as a believer I visit homes and satellite churches. Many of them that I come across are members of CMFI. Most of these people are struggling to make ends meet. Many elders that have left due to their inability to meet financial demands. I don’t say this to ruin or judge CMFI but I say it with Genuine Love because my heart grieves to see sheep going astray/ broken/ weary, etc.
    You see giving is good but what the Lord really wants is the heart. We sow material things but our hearts are in reality far from God. The church is to live by faith and not rely on the worlds system.
    I did attend Rhema and yes I agree that this is not only a local issue but it has creeped in to the global congregation.
    Peter, I believe you should pray about such and be led by His spirit in your attempt to voice your opinions and yes you could have emailed him or his office directly rather than such attempts which I don’t think is right. Only do it in public if you are worthy to cast a stone.
    We as believers are to compliment one another in the mission not compete or against.
    Remember, it is never about you and the pastor, it was never about you and the church but God and you.
    If we are on the solid foundation that Christ laid than we wouldn’t be shaken easily. Pray for one another and seek Him whilst He still can be found.
    I rarely hear preaching on the cross, on holiness, on righteousness, on godliness, on biblical salvation and the fear of God.
    We teach about the teacher (holy spirit) but never allow the teacher to teach us. We come to the cross but never get crucified on it.
    Let’s get back to basics and not skip classes.

    Let’s not be Christians in name only.

    Bless you all

    Mr. Vandever,
    I congratulate you on the achievements that you have attained in theology. I commend you for reading your bible and storing it on your kindle as you have stated in a comment. I do not attend CMF church neither have I got any degrees in theology.But I thank God for His Holy Spirit(Luke :12:11-12) However I fail to understand why such an educated individual like you would point out the weaknesses in a leader when you have a platform as such to help the sheep. I have taken the opportunity to read all your statements and am saddened by the fact that you fail to back all your statements with the word of God. (John 5:39) This may have helped individuals who like you have all of questions. I understand that to win a soul and to ensure that men know about the kingdom of God or the truth, use the word of God, because HIS word is alive. As a theologian, I am sure you understand the true meaning of Gods Love ( John 13:34-35) as you may have studied it! But do you understand the word LOVE. Because Gods love is not to condemn, its not to hurt, its not racist, its not criticism. In your comments you stated you’re all about “Jesus vision” wasn’t his main vision to LOVE. If it wasn’t for LOVE. He wouldn’t have shed his precious life on Calvary so that you Mr. Vandever,Myself and Pastor Kurulo and everyone else reading this maybe forgiven and redeemed. We are in no position to judge because” we shall not cast the first stone unless we are purely blameless”. However if you did truly and utmostly LOVE GOD without question. Then share your message with LOVE to help someone in need. Share your knowledge and the experience that you have gained in theology to build up Pastors lives and to make fellow believers understand the true meaning and power of God and Gods word. Time is too short to waste on being a critic. Be a critic to Golrify his Kingdom and to win souls. Be a critic with LOVE for GOD.
    Thankyou and May God Bless us All

    3 SIMPLE EXPLANATION

    1. Fijian people including their pastors are not Americans and dont have the mentally of get reach quick scheme.

    2. May be, just may be, Matthew 6:33 -Seek First the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and ALL this THINGS (money,houses,cars,businesses,tv,mobile phones,watches,table,clothes,shoes,jobs, so on & so forth…you name it Peter…anything..et..etc.) SHALL be ADDED unto YOUUU.
    Maybe, just maybe, if what Jesus states here is Truth…..Maybe is reaping his Rewards just like the rest of us.

    3. Jiovah his not just my Righteous Judge….His Daddy (abba Father), Unless you have adaughter or a son you can understand the Father Son realationship.
    Jesus said, if you evil father knows how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in Heaven give good gifts to his children.

    Shallome.

    Hi Peter, Thank you for your article. I am not a CMF member, but a believer and born again Christian. I have seen how our local churches have grown and how some have fallen apart. CMF is one of our churches that have grown big, succesful and prosper. From my knowledge, Pastor Suli had a very humble beginning, he and his wife both resigned from their profession, to take the gospel, to every home, door to door, to all parts of the Fiji Island. They did this for years. The ministry then was called EVERY HOME. CMF was birthed from this small ministry. Apart from Fiji, the Church is sending their people, fijian missionaries, to all the nations, as far as the interior of South Africa, just to take the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ to every lost soul. I know they are fulfilling the purpose of every Christian. So it is hard to believe your message. The truth of your writing, God knows and only God will be our judge. To identify a true man of God, its all in the Bible. We identify them by their fruit, how they have lived their life. I admire and praise God for Pastor Suli and his Wife. Close knit family, humble and loving couple, have lived by example.
    WHAT IS THE MOTIVE BEHIND YOUR WRITING SIR, THAT IS MY QUESTION TO YOU. GOD BLESS.

    Thank you Peter for such comments. One can only tell whether a movement is of God, by prophetic messages and visions. We are all bodies of Christ and we all have our various purposes. There is only one unpardonabe sin and that is blasheming against The Holy Spirit…but I can see this is a man to man interrogation. I wish to share this verse from the same book that you both men read from: The wind bloweth where it listeth aand thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is EVERY ONE that is born of the Spirit. My suggestion is that you contact Mr Kurulo directly and settle out this issue on a face to face issue. Sedition is not a fruit off the Holy Spirit, coupled with gossiping and murmurings. That is also a biblical teaching to approach and apprehend a brother if he is wrong and I sugggest you take that. Please Peter, find some time to settlle this out with Mr Kurulo… The Holy Spirit edifies…and by your comments you are not… To God be the Honour!

    “Nevermind that Fiji is one of the poorest countries in the Pacific. Forget that most Fijians can’t even afford to fly to New Zealand or Australia. You can also forget that the ones with jobs make about $1.20 an hour. I find that few Fijians had any type of extra income or any types of savings. They are not prepared for a rainy day.” – i beg to differ with this statement. Our Government’s may be unstable BUT we most certainly aren’t the poorest. Fiji has one of the most developed economies in the Pacific incase you didn’t know. I recommend you revisit Fiji, do your research thoroughly before you ‘school’ us about Pastor Kurulo being a false prophet. You’re an appalling bigot for that misleading and inaccurate statement.

        Peter, from all your replies and statements, it is clear that you are racist and don’t know what you are talking about.
        As a member of the CMFI church; we do get taught about tithing; we do get informed about fundraising initiatives the church plans to hold; plus many other things. However; there has NEVER been one single moment where anyone attending that church is forced to give away money they didn’t want to give. Everything is always up to the individual. No one is ever judged or forced into paying anything. Pastor Suli and his family are humble; hardworking and genuinely caring. You should stop spreading rubbish; and those of us that have a problem tithing or giving towards fundraising initiatives should just not give. If you and I don’t give money to support the work of God then don’t worry because Fiji has too many beautiful hearts who will give towards this cause. In Fiji we look after one another; we invite those hungry into our homes for a meal if they are passing by; we give the best of what we have to others and keep less and the less better thing for ourselves. This is just some of the characteristics of us; the Fijian people. Please take your racist attitude and comment on what is happening in your own country. You know nothing about our Pastor; yet judge. Who made you judge and jury..Yes, we are not Hawaii; our economy varies from others you commented about; don’t speak to us FIjians as if we are uneducated and less better.

        Finally; there are far too many people that support Pastor Suli and the work CMFI is doing. Supporters will continue to grow; regardless of many other Peters like you spreading rubbish.

        Instead of being jealous about Pastor Suli, you should pray hard to fill God’s love in your heart. It is such a waste that you study our religion; yet feel nothing. Really sad!

        If you think that Pastor Suli is asking for money for himself in church; then we will not give money. If you think Pastor Suli is building a school for himself then we will not give money for schools. We will just let our poor kids run around illiterate. If you think that Pastor Suli gives money to poor women with children who are victims of abuse or left by their husbands; then we will not give. We will let our financially unfortunate women live and beg on the streets. If you think we give money to Pastor Suli so selfless individuals can be sent out to save souls for God; then we will not give money for any soul to be saved. We will just save ourselves and let the rest of the unreached people die and not have the chance to ever feel God’s presence or his existence. YOU SEE PETER; i could go on….but the truth is WE ARE FIJIANS; and FIJIANS LOVE MORE THAN HATE. FIJIANS GIVE MORE THAN THEY WOULD TAKE….YOU WILL NEVER FIND A RACE LIKE US ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD…THAT”S WHY THIS IS PARADISE. You cannot compare Hawaii’s economy with ours; clearly you are not an economist. But the one thing we have in Fiji is in our DNA which you will never understand. Stop being racist; allow your heart to love everyone. Let your love overwhelm your hate for others then you may truly achieve something of International significance. Moce mada Peter

    Pastor Suli wont even bother your view towards him and negative comments from others.

    Reading your article shows only one thing. YOUR STUPIDITY. You need to reread your bible and ask God to give YOU wisdom and direction. I think you are hearing the wrong voice bro and not from the Holy Spirit and you heading to a very dangerous path.

    what you doing is not even close to confrontation that is mentioned in the bible. I would suggest that you reread the bible verse AGAIN about Paul confronting Peter, i believe you will get an insight from there which you misinterpreted, Paul Confronted Peter PRIVATELY meaning FACE TO FACE, Infact what you did is judging and condemning him. God gives us the wisdom to do his will if you think that is from God.

    CONFRONTATION IS DONE WITH LOVE NOT WITH HATE. YOU ARE SO FULL OF HATE MY FRIEND.

    God Bless your Soul

    Peter, your article was written to create division in our church; in our country and amongst people of different faiths. You strategically picked on a man who is contributing so much towards the Fijian economy and the Fijian people; economically, socially and spiritually. Fiji is not some small island state where people are running around naked and dead in the brains. We are well educated and can read between the lines of your poorly written article. Instead of rubbishing a man you don’t know personally; it would do you some good to share information with evidence and not useless air blown through your behind. I am a Sociologist myself and I understand the questions you have raised. But the difference between you; me and some of my fellow Christian siblings and is that the Holy Spirit is not understood or felt through your Degrees or Educational Qualifications. I feel very sorry for you having going through the trouble of trying to study Christianity yet failing to feel anything real in your spirit. The word for it is not brainwashed. We have not been brainwashed; but instead we can think and feel for ourselves. There is no need for you to try and cause division in our country; in fact there will be and are more people like you out there; so of course this sort of rubbish will always be written. But it would be good for you to spend time reading God’s word and trying to feel it rather than understanding it. Try to be filled with God’s holy spirit rather than making sense of it and getting jealous just because someone less educated than you can clearly experience God’s presence and blessings in his daily life.

    I know Pastor Suli and his family personally and there is no truth to what you said. Why don’t you go and judge other fundraisers? Why don’t you pick on other Church leaders; ? the Pope perhaps?? Why don’t you go and judge others in our country? There are many other people you could have picked on but you chose to pick on the most humble man in Fiji and the most selfLESS person. Why didnt you mention the many families that have received assistance through what our church does. And it’s not the church or Pastor Suli alone; it’s the ordinary people of Fiji like me who work together to help others. We help within FIji and outside of FIji; and around the world; supporting our missionaries. There is so much work our church does for others. We have never been forced to pay anything towards fundraising initiatives; we have never been forced to give money in church; we have never been forced to give honor and praise to Pastor Suli; NEVER!;

    For those of you like Peter; and to you Peter; you should get to know Pastor Suli and be “in” the CMF church rather than attending a few sunday church services and thinking that you qualify to judge a real good man.

    Anyways; may God bless you and continue to bless Pastor Suli and his good work.

You have NO RIGHT to judge or criticise any one & of course you would know since you say you’re well educated in Evangelism !! Well than ACT & SPEAK like one because the LORD you claim to know does not JUDGE anyone nor CRITICISE!! You have some nerve to come to our COUNTRY & refer to us as being the POOREST in the PACIFIC Community & yet you don’t understand our LOVE for our Country & Our GOD blinds us from viewing our Country as such FYI we might be POOR in your eyes but we are RICH is Spirit ???? & also refering to yourself as not being a Native LoL ???? if course you’re NOT because we DON’T do such things & don’t have ill hearted intentions of ruining a MINISTRY!! Take this as an advise: Don’t Play GOD because ONLY GOD has a say in all these NOT YOU as you are just merely HUMAN like me & also Pastor Suliasi so I suggest you Let God do His Job while you go look for something constructive to do rather than coming to our COUNTRY & Condemning Churches & Ministries ????

    I admire your findings Mr vandever because it shows how your so called “Ministry” is functioning well???? but Pastor Suli is a great men of God with a vision from God to spread his gospel to the ends of the world so I suggest you leave him alone cause while you busy doing your Theological studies or whatever you were bragging about Pastor suli was busy saving lost souls for God. #Amen

        Because you’ve only attended the church once! Have some respect please instead of critisizing a great man of God.. To be honest there have been other churches in Fiji who have been saying the exact same thing but we “PUT WORLD MISSION AS OUR PRIORITY” rather than listening to people like you

    now the revival begins in Fiji…….it has taken somebody from outside of Fiji to speak out because nobody in Fiji is bold enough to do so. I believe more questionable things will begin to unravel and I feel for CMF members who have dedicated their whole life to Pastor Suli blindly. There will be a lot of hurt people out there who are waiting for their blessing because they have sowed into Pastor Suli but unfortunately its bad ground doctrine. we should keep the CMF members in prayer. I pray the refining fire of the Holy Ghost will move from church to church. Thank You Lord for sending Peter….Vinaka Peter

    I think the only message that is to be preached in churches today is the message of the cross and the finished worked of Jesus, and we are saved by grace Alone and not of our works, free from all ccondemnations and the law that was against us.
    When this is preached in churches, you will not force people to give nor fast or come to church, people will do it out their heart because they have heard the good news(gospel)

    Well offcourse the Bible says we must not judge others, however when some is robbed off their hard earned earnings the Bible defines it as stealing as stated in the Ten Commandments.
    In this case a person using the gospel or God’s name to make his or her own income has abused the true meaning of finding salvation in Christ by supporting a con man.

God gave us also the spirit of discernment to know what is right and wrong. Giving should not be a burden. It should not also make you poor and have a struggling future. I believe that giving goes with faith and only then can you see the fruit of your giving. If you do not bear fruit or receive any blessings, that means something is WRONG! You maybe sowing on the wrong ground/church.

        So you say giving money to churches is a waste of money?

        Were you hurt by this church in some way or the other?
        I believe that you are open to your own opinion but posting it would not have been the brightest idea as this causes a lot of commotion among others.
        I see that for you money is everything.
        Have you ever been blessed? Have you ever blessed anyone?
        Don’t you have enough blessing when you evangelize?
        People are now educated and they have choices to make. No one is forced to do anything they don’t want to do.
        If someone doesn’t want to give then its upon themselves not to give. You only give if you want to because God loves a cheerful giver.
        Those who gave and bickered should not have given in the first place.
        Lets all just do as we believe and let us not be shaken from whatever we believe.
        Peter if you think that what you have written is okay then go on and write. Just go slow on the accusations please. People are also protective of their leaders and it’s not right to degrade anyone.

    Peter… There are ways of dealing with issues in the church. No matter how much the world will try to intervene with the church … Gods hidden mysteries (Eph. 3:8) will only be revealed to his body at the location it operates in. CMF is at Khalsa Rd, Nasinu and it will serve God’s purpose there. If you do not want to invest in the work at CMF, there are many banks all the world to invest in.

    How about all the fundraising been done in the US. US$50 per member is a lot of money. Where did that money go and been used for? How about his children, sending them overseas to be pilots and engineers, who paid for that. I believe it is the money from the church. All these overseas collections are not accounted for yet the hard earned money of locals is still being demanded. They get poorer while him and all his pastors get all the cream. Money is what keeps them going. Not faith and certainly not God. God despise people who raise money in the church for materials things that can be destroyed. The only thing that pleases God is the faithfulness of his people that are attending this church. I believe that’s what is keeping this church together.

    You are all saying that he is not at fault and he is a man of God. Do not judge…You were never there when he started out as Every Home ministry and everyone was all equal…walking door to door to lead people to God. Families sacrificed a lot, their lives, house, household goods, machines even their families came apart and some died but they were steadfast in their faith for one MISSION and that is to save as many souls to God as they can. They gave for a church that lost souls can come to. CMF was known for its POWERFUL PRAYERS. PRAYER WARRIORS were there day and night praying, intercessing. How the youths would have those powerful action songs and dramas.

    Nowdays, people just attend to be known, be someone, dress nicely and look like they have lots of money, nice cars yet only God know their hearts.

    I’m sharing all this because I support the people who have struggled to give to this church yet they have still not reaped in their own lives the fruits of their giving. I know very well what I am talking about. Veteran’s of this church should know as well and this is the truth.

    where are some of his children now that went overseas to be educated, back in Fiji, unemployed and just depending on their parents or should I dare say, other peoples money to live comfortably. Even lying about their qualifications.

    I think it’s time FICAC comes in because raising so much money like 1 million per year should be taxable since they have businesses now and money from overseas….these are income for the pastors. And I believe the missionaries receive only 1/3 of these fundraisers.

    I bet you every year will be fundraisers and those who cannot discern that too bad for you! Choose wisely.

    How about all the fundraising been done in the US. US$50 per member is a lot of money. Where did that money go and been used for? How about his children, sending them overseas to be pilots and engineers, who paid for that. I believe it is the money from the church. All these overseas collections are not accounted for yet the hard earned money of locals is still being demanded. They get poorer while him and all his pastors get all the cream. Money is what keeps them going. Not faith and certainly not God. God despise people who raise money in the church for materials things that can be destroyed. The only thing that pleases God is the faithfulness of his people that are attending this church. I believe that’s what is keeping this church together.

    You are all saying that he is not at fault and he is a man of God. Do not judge…You were never there when he started out as Every Home ministry and everyone was all equal…walking door to door to lead people to God. Families sacrificed a lot, their lives, house, household goods, machines even their families came apart and some died but they were steadfast in their faith for one MISSION and that is to save as many souls to God as they can. They gave for a church that lost souls can come to. CMF was known for its POWERFUL PRAYERS. PRAYER WARRIORS were there day and night praying, intercessing. How the youths would have those powerful action songs and dramas.

    Nowdays, people just attend to be known, be someone, dress nicely and look like they have lots of money, nice cars yet only God know their hearts.

    peter you remind me of a warning stated by one of a pharisee named Gamaliel a teacher of the law in the book o f act chapter5 verse 34–39 i quote and he said to them “men of israel,take heed to yourselves what you intend to do regarding these men ,for some time ago theudas rose up ,claiming to be somebody ,a number of men ,about 400,joined him .he was slain,and all who obeyed him were scattered and to nothing. after this man Judas of Galilee, rose up in the days of of the census, and drew away many people after him . he also perished and all who obeyed him were dispersed. ” and now i say to you ,keep away from these men and let them alone ; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; But if it is of GOD, you cannot overthrow it— lest you even be found to fight against GOD, there was once a successful business man who is my brother in law open about 8 stores around suva he watch tbn live brought cast every sunday he was interested in the preaching of the word of god, but the teaching of tithe and offering got him to critic he started to say things about the church make the story short, not even one year of running his 8stores for sudden the business on the verge of bankruptcy so he had to close 6 stores its a true story . better mind our own business , keep your mouth shut against the man of God

    He will continue to do what God has asked him to do.
    And as for you, you need to search yourself out and seek Gods purpose for your life.
    We are all workers of Gods Kingdom, and we need to work together and not to destroy each other.

    Peter you have made some very ill-informed comments on CMF here in particular Rev Kurulo insinuating that he was prospering himself from the givings of church members. The truth is CMF has a Board and a Finance Executive team which administers its finance and commercial arm. Rev Kurulo has no direct involvement in this area. All the church ‘s business is guided by the collective decisions of the Board. The church has now embarked into bigger business with the establishment of a supermarket. Returns from this project and other investments will be committed to its mission program around the world. Out of all the churches in Fiji , CMF has the largest mission network which covers some of the remotest of areas in Africa, PNG, Asia, Native Australia, Vanuatu and many others. It really has a proud mission story. You really do not know about CMF, its humble beginnings and the man God had called and ordained to lead it. CMF was born out of the Every Home movement in my hometown in Labasa in the late 70s. I’m well aware of what the ministry and Rev Kurulo went through in those early years. The sacrifices, the pain, the tears but there was no doubt that God’s hands and his divine anointing were on his man.

    Sometimes it is always clearer to view situations from afar, not from within, to be able to see clearly the pattern of what’s happening inside an organization including the church. Some pertinent questions to ask are: Why are most Pastors so rich with good houses, vehicles, clothes, good schools for their children etc. whilst most members are poor and yet are forced (through sermon of fear) to give willingly to the church? Why do Pastors travel the world to collect money from members and from Foundations and not use them for elevating the living standards of the poor members, providing them with housing and other amenities to improve their livelihood, but use them to buy housing and vehicles for themselves? The whole equation is wrong when the wealth is concentrated on the Pastors whilst the congregation is indoctrinated from the pulpit that they should accumulate their wealth in heaven. Why not earth first and heaven later. It just boggles my mind.

    2.Bad and Evil things will not be criticize ; I am a member of CMFI Church what you are doing Peter confirmed myself and my family that we are at the RIGHT PLACE because criticizing is the Devils character and the Devil will only criticize and against the TRUTH
    So PETER it seems that you are the EMBASSDOR OF THE DEVIL

    I used to go to this church in Kinoya.While inside the church during the worship,I looked where two pastors was seating, I saw another man sat behind them but his face is not familiar nor saw this gentlemen before.He looked at me at once because he noticed me looking at him.when the front pastor stood up (one sitting on the left) and dressed off his seat ,I was shocked to see that the man behind had a set of legs of a cow and was hairy wearing sulu vakataga. I Immediately left this place and never return.Had a sleepless night and was shocked for days.i manage to tell my family few days later.

    I used to go to this church in Kinoya.While inside the church during the worship,I looked where two pastors was seating, I saw another man sat behind them but his face is not familiar nor saw this gentlemen before.He looked at me at once because he noticed me looking at him.when the front pastor stood up (one sitting on the left) and dressed off his seat ,I was shocked to see that the man behind had a set of legs of a cow and was hairy wearing sulu vakataga. I Immediately left this place and never return.Had a sleepless night and was shocked for days.i manage to tell my family few days later.

    Dear Mr Peter
    As I was scrolling down reading all the comments,I was also prompt to give a comment,we have our own views in giving and also you have your own,but Mr Peter your views maybe is or maybe is wrong,the main thing here is our Motives,the way we think the because the bible says,As the person thinks so as he,its our motives,if your motive is Just giving to Dr Suliasi Kurulo then it him that you will get because you are Just concerntrated on him,because the bible says Looking unto Jesus who is the author and finisher of our Faith,THE MAIN THING HERE IS JESUS CHRIST,JESUS SAID I AM THE WAY,I AM THE TRUTH,I AM THE LIFE,the reason why we are giving is because Jesus christ gave his life for us,let your giving be concerntrated on the person of The Lord Jesus Christ,don’t Give if you are double minded,AS I’VE SAID MOTIVES IS VERY IMPORTANT,THOSE PEOPLE WHO COMMENTED RESENTLY AGAINST REVEREND DR SULIASI KURULO,we are not angry at You but we need you to come and see for youselves what is really happening here at the WORLD HARVEST CENTRE IN KINOYA,TESTIMONIES OF PEOPLE WHO GAVE THERE BELONGINGS AND EVEN THERE LIVES FOR THE EXTENSION OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD,WAIT I’LL COAT SOMETHING DR SULI SAID:
    ‘YOU CAN ARGUE OVER THEOLOGICAL IN GIVING BUT YOU CAN NEVER AGUE OVER SOMEONE’S TESTIMONIES OF GODS DOING OVER HIS OR HER LIFE,so our motives as Ive said and I will reapidly say motives.
    Mr Peter, Reverend Suli has planted more than 100 churches around the world and we are the 4th in the world of missions,our giving goes straight to this Churches that he has Planted
    Stay Blessed
    And God Bless
