The King of Destiny Church

A few years ago, a couple of Density Church members came to my house and asked for money. They appeared to be hyped on some sort of drug or perhaps that was just religious fervour. I engaged in conversation with them for a while but ultimately told them I had nothing to give, which wasn’t far from the truth. Once I had made it clear that I wasn’t going to part with any folding, they skedaddled leaving the gate open on the way out. I thought this rather rude as I had sheep that could’ve escape onto the road. Luckily I noticed, as there are large fines for wandering stock these days.

After that a man started ranting outside my property like a complete nutter. I couldn't understand some of it, but most of the yelling consisted of:

“So this is the evil one then?” and “He’s the son of Satan!” etc…

I kid you not. Some of my neighbours went out to investigate and the man soon left. That was my introduction to Density Church back in 2003. What they failed to understand was that my soul didn’t need saving in the first place and I certainly wasn’t going to be bullied by a couple of parasites who have no control over such matters.

What happened that day was clearly designed to try and shame me for not donating my hard earned cash, which is a rather disgusting practice that I believe continues to be a predominant theme within the organisation. Enough is enough already! Such psychological abuse pretty much sums up what the Density Church is all about, they're just another hate group founded on bigotries and intolerance. If you're a current member, I suggest you leave.

Televangelist Brian Tamaki has done nothing to change my low opinion of his organization since then. In fact he has brought further shame on legitimate Christian values by continuing his homophobic and misogynistic campaigns, which prey upon the disadvantaged to line his own pockets.
Be sure your sins will find you out Brian Tamaki, for shalt your sins be known.

Most people have heard about Brian Tamaki dabbling in alcohol and drugs as a teenager. You only have to grab a copy of his autobiography to learn that the snake oil salesman has a few skeletons in the closet. Back in the day his teen girlfriend Hannah and mother of his out-of-wedlock first child, tried to stab Tamaki to death. He apparently had to barricade himself in the bathroom and got the fright of his life when the serrated blade burst through the door only 5cm from his body.

"I was shocked. This woman really wanted to kill me." Brian Tamaki wrote.

Now married to Hannah for 31 years, Brian Tamaki says the couple can laugh about the incident. 

“Remember when you tried to kill me dear? God it was funny!” Not!

But that was years ago and hardly even worth mentioning. What is far more relevant is that the Tamaki family is still dysfunctional. Amongst rumours that some Density Church member’s are having to resort to selling drugs to get their children into the Pentecostal fundamentalist “Christian” movement’s school system, is another story that is far closer to home for the “King” and his family.
From 2003 to 2005 Brian Tamaki’s very own daughter sold drugs to support her habit. The Tamaki’s have been clever at keeping this information secret, until now. They will claim this information is unfounded, but I can assure you that it’s fully credible. The Tamaki's might even say it’s defamatory and threaten the Jackal with legal action. Unfortunately for them, there's evidence to support this fact, so I’m not worried in the slightest about their response, if one is forthcoming at all.

Not only are the Tamaki’s a bunch of money-grubbing sycophants requiring a 10% automatic tithe from the some 9000 Density Church member’s incomes; they’re a bunch of druggies as well. Not really Christian like behaviour huh!

“Ten cents in every dollar God says belongs to him, so that’s a principle not of Brian Tamaki and Destiny Church, that’s a biblical principle,” Brian Tamaki preaches.

Despite his dubious history, Brian Tamaki does at least try to keep the veneer of a fine upstanding citizen about him. In 2008, the Tamaki’s obvious warped sense of reality led them to try to build their very own Holy Density Church City in South Auckland.

“I am not just some man or some spirit, I am God,” Brian ranted like a lunatic.

At the church's 10th birthday celebration, Brian also talked about the 10-acre (40,000 m2) site the church had just procured, with a budget of $2.4 million dollars in cold hard donations. He said the community would have its own maraes, medical facilities and that:

"Every child of every member of this church will never go to a state school again,"

The self proclaimed “King” has failed to deliver this to his gullible church goers.
In October 2009, about 700 male members of the church attended a conference called "MoMENtum" in which Tamaki likened himself to King David. The conference was designed to make “men fit to go to war,” whatever that means. Attendees swore a covenant oath of loyalty and obedience to the "King" and were given a covenant ring to wear on their right hands. A document entitled Protocols and Requirements Between Spiritual Father & His Spiritual Sons contained the oath:

“Above all, we stand here today in the presence of God to enter into this sacred covenant with our man of God, Bishop Brian Tamaki. To you Bishop we pledge our allegiance, our faithfulness and loyalty. We pledge to serve the cause that is in your heart and to finish that work. Success to you and success to those who help you - for God is with you.”

Following this pledge, the church was widely labelled as a cult. Mark Vrankovich of Cultwatch saying:

“Within this document we see here the very mechanism by which cults go askew, Christians were sick of being identified with Mr Tamaki and the Destiny Church. I mean here you have a man who thinks he is a biblical character, in this case King David, and he's building himself an army of mighty men who will do whatever he wants. I have grave concerns for that, grave concerns."
It should also be noted that many cults throughout the ages have utilize drugs to make their victims more amenable to their will. But as there’s no hard evidence of widespread drugging within the Density Church, it’s merely just another concern amongst many surrounding “King” Brian Tamaki and his followers of the questionable Density Church.

Last weekend the National Party MP and Chairperson of the Mäori Affairs Committee Tau Henare, Maori Party co-leader Pita Sharples, Labour MP Shane Jones and the leader of the new Mana Party, Hone Harawira were invited to Density Church’s annual conference. During the service, Bishop Brian Tamaki placed his hands on their chests and prayed with his congregation for the MP’s to give the cult further taxpayer money.

“King” Brian Tamaki will instruct followers on how to vote this election depending on how much the bribes to buy votes amount to. Pita Sharples is reported as the only MP openly considering the illegal offer.

You can’t buy your way into heaven Brian Tamaki.
