A Road Less Travelled It’s unusual, and in my experience unique, for an artist to expose himself and his songs to weekend-long scrutiny by an audience. But this is precisely what happened here in Wrexham last weekend. Mike Peters (The Alarm) performed of his own compositions during no less than eight separate acoustic sessions. It's too bad that The original Alarm aren't together anymore. Mike Peters, their singer, has his version of The Alarm touring but they are not close to the appeal of the original guys. Still Mike's work is fine and his version of the Alarm are worth seeing too. It's just that the original guys are so great you miss them. Please buy this CD/5(21). "Rare songs of the Alarm revisited" "Made In Wales" "Mike Peters - sioprovcabradeperfscormarcodenmenssol.co" Recorded & Mixed at Elevator Studios, Liverpool 16, 17, 18 September /5(3).
Access to CII members is tightly regulated by its leaders. Another former member reports going to Mike Peters alone, then in the presence of other Christian witnesses which Mike Peters may not regard as Christian without any response from him in return. It is a problem since the church is tight-lipped about its meeting times, places, and membership. Outsiders have attempted to to communicate by an email to members offering their criticism. System administrators can quickly intercept email to members if directed.
Not all of these teachings are authored by Mike Peters. Would the copyright owners approve of these uses of theirs songs if they knew the practices their music was underscoring? Borrowed praise is maybe one of the songs in a songbook. According to Mike Peters, liturgy of any kind is not christian:. Former members are perplexed by the amount of time Mike Peters spends with wives of other husbands and a specific single woman.
He has done this at home and while traveling. Former members have difficulty recalling if Mike Peters ever traveled with his own wife on his apostolic-missionary journeys.
CII and satellite affiliates seem proud that outsiders cannot distinguish husbands and wives among groups traveling with Mike Peters or other leaders on their apostolic missionary outings.
Despite their theological declaration, gossip, slander, and innuendo proliferates among the group. A member is guilty until proven innocent by the testimony of two or three or the corporate church. Therefore, to object is to be a rebel, and rebellion is the sin of witchcraft, and witchcraft is the work of the devil. It does not matter if evidence does not exist. This can be said to the member directly or to anyone else Mike Peters chooses to disclose his discerning revelation.
Past transgressions are not forgotten whether identified by Mike Peters or by other members or confessed. The exceptions start at the top with Mike Peters who, over the years, has had little controversy or struggle to confess except for sins long in the past.
And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church; but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. Members have been asked or told to leave both with and without the process. The excommunication process perpetually looms as a threat for low tier members to keep them compliant. Members who leave the church usually are limited in their contact with CII members.
Some may be dis-fellowshipped completely if they do not leave in the prescribed manner. Elslager tried to inconspicuously leave the group with whom he was living without any raucous. You left just before being asked to leave. Hopefully, where you go from here true disciples will continue to touch the motive of your heart.
He did not disclose their names and they remain anonymous to this day He told me that it was decided that I leave my house, job and the state of Indiana. Members who are told to leave are often told to leave the state. Some do remain locally, but their contact with existing members is slim to none. Again, Tim S.
When Mike Peters responded to Tim S. Mike Peters declares:. There are no choices. Reasons for excommunication vary according to the accusation. Yet, CII simultaneously practices a firm authoritarianism within its ranks. Church discipline is not a great threat for Tier 3 or higher leaders unless they question teaching or practices it rarely happens and may have happened only once or twice according to former members. Lower caste members must approach anything questionable they see in these peoples lives humbly.
Even if lower cast members confront these leaders, the tables will be turned on lower caste members who may bring a charge against recognized leaders in the Church. Therefore, the higher echelons of the oligarchy become sealed off from the scrutiny to which lower caste members are subject.
Members cannot quit without loss of relationship with other members. Additionally, CII is their entire life, especially for young adults and children who have grown up in the church. Families may be divided if a member wants to leave. For spouses who may want to leave, pressure and division is exploited within the family as church members rally to emotionally and financially support a member who desires to remain. Leaders live with privileges not afforded to lower caste members.
Lower ranking members require permission to do those same things. Examples are sports and hobby interests, travel decisions, biological family visits, choice of living locale, home ownership, and visits with past friends. Contrarily, Mike Peters and Tier-2, Tier-3 leaders are unaccountable in the detailed minutia to which non-leading members are subjected.
Accountability among the top tier is less attainable from lower cast members due to the upper tier members perceived spirituality. I can name at least 6 men off the top of my head that he is accountable to and labors with, along side, as a brother.
Though he never tells who these are, this member confirms is that CII leadership is an Oligarchy at best, or a top-down dictatorship. CII is the embodiment of the thing they condemn. Accountability is enforced by members withholding affection when other members go astray in behavior or expressed thought.
That leader or member then informs other members that fellowship with this individual may resume. Sin must be confessed and repentance made. Achan hid forbidden treasure in his tent against the command of God to the harm of the Israelite congregation. Therefore, no hidden sin is tolerated. No hidden anything is tolerated. Likewise, there may be liberties CII affords itself that mainstream Christians Reason 41 - Mike Peters - Alarmstock - A road Less Travelled (CD) regard as wreck-less at best.
Searching Allathisfeet. While there are CII members who are evangelistic in their jobs and public situations, there is little emphasis on the Gospel of Salvation in Jesus, and any evangelism is usually connected with the teachings and mindset of CII. Would you agree that is very scriptural? In this example, Moses commands the Levites to kill Israelites who are worshiping the golden calf which God has already forbidden as a capital crime.
Mike Peters says, not the Bible:. This is an alarming translation of the scripture and is out of mainstream Christianity or Judaism. Mike Peters scoffs at challenges to his interpretation of ancient Hebrew and Greek.
So either 1 Mike Peters knows this difference and is deliberately hiding it from his disciples, or 2 He does not know the difference. These examples of Mike-speak permeate his writings, audios, all of CII teaching… and dangerous. This teaching allows Mike Peters to live a different lifestyle from the other members or excuse his questionable travel activities. Most alarming, like in Mormonism or Scientology, he has completed the groundwork in the minds of his disciples that truth can change through special revelation illuminated to the prophet, Mike Peters.
As in the world, unity is used to start wars and cause division. It is used against church members who may question or disagree with anything brought upon them or questioned by other members.
There are exceptions, as not all members especially among lower caste may actually desire fellowship with outside believers. Yet, those relationships are subject to scrutiny from other members and leaders who use this unity verse to leverage a member deeper into the CII mindset or out of fellowship. CII members generally hold to fundamental tenets of Christianity such as the Trinity, Deity of Christ, the need for salvation, etc. However, teaching on fundamental tenets, such the Trinity, are conspicuously absent.
An artifact of Church of Christ influence is the high emphasis place on baptism water immersion for salvation. New members are sometimes scrutinized as to the legitimacy of their conversion or baptism when encountering CII.
Some members are re-baptized after entering the church counting earlier baptisms or professions of faith in Jesus as illegitimate, Reason 41 - Mike Peters - Alarmstock - A road Less Travelled (CD).
It is not uncommon for new members to be baptized a second time when entering the ranks of CII. CII and members teach this fundamental protestant doctrine. Yet, members are loaded up with rules and regulations which may disqualify them from salvation. Members who cannot meet the standard may be dis-fellowshipped or given the opportunity to leave the church or face Church Discipline.
Members of CII live in close proximity to each other. Lower caste members are most likely to be subjected to these standards. Members confess sin. Leaders confess weaknesses. These confessions can be used at a later date to manipulate or blackmail out of fear the member into submission. Any other source of brain-washing and everyone IS is fatal. Selective application of the Modesty Doctrine exists depending on members ranking. Members have been rebuked with comparisons to sexual deviants or child molesters if they violate modesty expectations.
Mike Peters and CII leaders have taught their members to designate other members of CII as the custodians of their children and estate upon death. Mike Peters, Kevin M. Upon my death, I direct that my body be buried as soon as legally possible.
I direct that my body be transported to the cemetery for immediate burial in the earth without embalming or cleaning of any kind. I specifically direct that my body not be cremated. I also direct that my remains not be transported to any location other than directly to the cemetery selected by my surviving spouse. In the event my spouse does not survive me, I direct that my Reason 41 - Mike Peters - Alarmstock - A road Less Travelled (CD) be transported directly to the cemetery selected by my Executor.
If the above nominees are unable to serve as Guardians together, I appoint my Executor to function with my full authority to select, at his discretion, guardians for my children. Mike Peters urged CII beginning around to obtain passports. The reason given was so members could quickly leave the country if God so willed. There is nothing sinister about having a passport. Yet one has to consider the timing that in two cases this happened on the heals of the Will Upon Death updates that were instructed see Will Upon Death.
Might there be a second exodus? If so, to where? Members put their life decisions into the hands of other members, especially the leaders. Members who do not seek permission about their life decisions see Members will not travel, write letters, or converse with biological family members outside the church without oversight from other members. Meetings are spontaneously planned by approved brothers or approved sisters. You must be on a call-list, email-list, or pager-list for time and place.
Meetings have a no-agenda agenda. Meetings, large and small, are modeled after 1 Corinthians According to 1 Corinthiansall members contribute to church gatherings. Approved leaders Tier 2 enjoy untethered liberty with their offerings of testimonies or teachings to the church. A member may get away with missing 1 or 2 meetings, but miss 3 and church discipline may ensue except for excuse 3. While he may be a charismatic gentlemen, he has also conducted himself on numerous occasions as vicious, controlling, quick to anger, slander wielding, and antagonistic.
Mike Peters and CII leaders derive their power by their criticism of flawed Christians and flawed churches. Mike Peters often quotes statistics about pornography, divorce, and teen rebellion among Christian churches today. Yet what outside survey has been conducted of CII? Mike Peters and his disciples of whom some of us once were regurgitate his words implanted by rote repetition and endless reading of books and listening of audio tapes.
Is it this way all the time? Probably not. Our suggestion is for Mike Peters to step aside and seek personal spiritual help for himself outside the Indianapolis Church. WHOIS databases contain nameserver, registrar, and in some cases, full contact information about a domain name.

I had just completed a massive British tour, I felt on top of the world.
Instead doctors at Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor told him his white blood cell count was up hugely and action needed to be taken — and taken fast. The cruel irony is that Rituximab — the drug that took Peters into remission originally — is now working against him.
