Cult Claims

Cult Claims

 

BGP commissioned Zucker  to examine the cult claims and our results have been recorded

here. After little time of researching the Assemblies of Yahweh over the internet, it became

recognisable that they are hundreds of cult claims on the internet about this group.. We wanted to

know why the Assemblies of Yahweh was being called a cult and if the claims had any legitimacy

within them. Evidently, we at BGP found little to no legitimacy for the claim that AOY is a cult. Most

sites which have the term "Assemblies of Yahweh cult" are lists of supposed cults by Christians

on personal sites and forums. A supposed "cult list" has been circulated through hundreds of

Christian sites and forums, making up a large amount of the “cult” searches on the internet. 

 

Cult accusation not legitimate

The list tell us nothing about why the Assemblies of Yahweh is a cult, but haphazardly circulated on Christian forums making up a vast proportion of the cult claim entries on search engines. It is a misleading, very crude tactic used and possibly, one that was coordinated by some Christian body. Other websites claimed that the Assemblies of Yahweh was a cult with no explanation. However, we sent emails and went meticulously in to the cult claim websites to find any explanations.

Why cult claims and accusations

 

  • Mix up of groups with other Assemblies which have similar names as the Assemblies of Yahweh Bethel Pa1
  • Unfortunately, an individual attacked the Assemblies of Yahweh Bethel Pa on a forum (VOY forum) and on Wikinfo with multiple false accusations, easily refuted by documented proof and testimonials.  
  •  Some view the Assemblies of Yahweh as a cult because of their strictness.
  •  The Assemblies of Yahweh choose not to be Chr-stians as they want to be separate and holy people to Yahweh.
  • Some have claimed that Elder Jacob O. Meyer heads the Sacred Name Movement, which is another false claim.
  • The majority of searches showed the Assemblies of Yahweh listed as a cult along with other faiths with no reason given. 
 BGP
We did some research on groups that call themselves the "Assemblies of Yahweh" when the copyright for that name belongs to the Assemblies of Yahweh, Bethel Pa. We found some ministries calling themselves Assemblies of Yahweh. One individual called himself the president of the Assemblies of Yahweh, another site claimed they were the "Assemblies of Yahweh international". However, most of all, we found that a group known as the "Assembly of Yahweh" is circulating the falsehood, particularly in foreign languages, that they are related to, or are, the Assemblies of Yahweh. We therefore put this warning on BGP to be aware that these groups are not the Assemblies of Yahweh. They were so many groups and people claiming to be the Assemblies of Yahweh that we decided not to write an article on it, as it would be too long. In Spanish, we found at least 50 sites using the term Assemblies of Yahweh deceptively.

We would advise all to take caution with counterfeit groups of the Assemblies of Yahweh, Bethel Pa. The Assemblies of Yahweh details are on the central site: www.assembliesofyahweh.com. Whether one lives in America, U.K, Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, India…one must go to thewww.assembliesofyahweh.com site for information about the AOY (Bethel, Pa) assemblies in their own areas”

Proposal

Due to us coming to an end of reviewing the Assemblies of Yahweh we came to the conclusion that animosity against the Assemblies of Yahweh is taking various forms. One of those forms is to set up faiths almost identical to the Assemblies of Yahweh. Some ex-members of the Assemblies of Yahweh have done this. This suggests that there is indeed something special about the Assemblies of Yahweh and that, even ex-members recognise the Assemblies of Yahweh form of worship is correct. However, it may also suggest that some people simply want to be their own leaders. We would suggest that, to prevent a confusion by sheer numbers of groups, something drastic be done.

Possibility

Perhaps the groups could come together and unite under the Assemblies of Yahweh. The problem would be this. Leaders would have to be re-educated in to, what the Assemblies of Yahweh would call, the correct form of worship and have to attend Obadiah School of the Bible first, if they were to continue their responsibilities. Secondly, all members would have to be baptised in to the Assemblies of Yahweh, they claim, to receive the holy spirit.

 Verdict

After close examination, BGfound that the cult claims against the ministry are fabrications and nit picking, with seldom any factuality. We found no serious incidents at all, no indecent behaviour of any kind. Although some ex-members have caused  problems, some members are not adhering to the faith as they ought to, the ministry itself is a good one. It lacks lavishry of any kind, but it still maintains its teachings and continues to herald to the world. Doctrinally, we cannot say whether the Assemblies of Yahweh is right or wrong, but as a reviewer at  BGP , can say that I feel that most Christians who write about this faith, especially in regards to the CARM, and ReachOut Trust articles, are close-minded and less disposed to doing things by the book than these.

The main focus of such Christians is to attack the Assemblies of Yahweh for keeping Biblical Law, for rejecting unbiblical practices and for adhering to a pure form of worship based on the Bible. The discrepancy between Christian and Spiritual Israelite that is most highlighted is the Trinity, but why such an ambiguous doctrine should be so central in such debates remains a mystery and rather hypocritical, or at the very least hypercritical. After half a century, the Assemblies of Yahweh is still making progress, despite its many unwarranted adversaries.
