Two thousand years ago a man from Nazareth was accused and put on trial for challenging the civil and religious order of the day.
On Friday evening, October 12, 2012 at Lennox Head Community Centre, a strangely similar series of events unfolded. Here we were, a group of citizens gathered together to listen to a man, Serge Benhayon, share an ancient message in the modern day. The message is not unlike that of Jesus’. It is a simple but profound message: that we have lost our way of love. The way back to love for our world, and ourselves, is first found ‘within’. If we learn to stop, feel and trust what really feels true, we will always make self-loving choices, which will reflect to make our world a more nurturing, equal and harmonious place.
Enter Rev. Dr. David Millikan and his media crew to execute a premeditated attack – to accuse Serge Benhayon of leading a cult and instruct his so-called ‘followers’ that they had unwittingly fallen prey to a seduction they were unaware of. They can’t possibly discern for themselves, they require ‘cult rescue’!
Prior to his ‘strike’ on Friday evening, Rev. Dr. David Millikan had gained enough of Serge Benhayon’s trust by spending some hours deceitfully interviewing him and then setting up his plan of betrayal (someone with the integrity and openness to humanity that Serge Benhayon has, is willing to first see the true heart in each person).
Rev. Dr. David Millikan, representing a dedicated life within an institution founded on the simple message of Jesus, has now become a perpetrator and judge, along with his accomplices. He is accusing a person of this time (who is reminding those willing to listen and hear that love is the way back to wellbeing and harmony for ourselves and our world) of being out of order, counter-cultural, and a ‘bad’ influence on those of us who feel the truth of love and its call to serve humanity. That we can return to love and can live that love is the message of Serge Benhayon. Is this not the very message on which Rev. Dr. David Millikan bases his connection to God?
When Rev. Dr. David Millikan searches his heart, and completes his intellectual assessment of this blog, it will no doubt result in more evidence of the brainwashed – who are so far gone they don’t even know they are brainwashed. May he reconnect with the way of love that he has publicly chosen to represent as a Minister of the Uniting Church. In his deceitful theatrics on Friday evening we saw no sign of the true love and integrity as is presented by Serge Benhayon.
The intent, deceit and actions of Rev. Dr. David Millikan were a blatant betrayal of trust, and promoted mistrust. Even if a TV program from this ambush makes it to air, the lack of integrity will be felt immediately.
