Tommy Tenney, the false "God Chaser!"

The following first-hand report of false teacher Tommy Tenney's regrettable return to the Victory Church at Cwmbran, home of the counterfeit "Welsh Outpouring" was sent to me last night by Mr. Steven Thomas. It came in as a comment on a previous article, but I felt that it should be given a greater prominence by featuring it in a new posting.

Great site and excellent discernment Bro. Rob. I have just come back from listening to Tommy Tenney speak at Cwmbran this evening (28/8/13). 

His message was a complete mix of funny stories, anecdotes and sadly, but not too surprisingly; no turning to God's Word. He did make a couple (and only a couple) of references to things in the Bible (his talk was about worship, hospitality and the "atmosphere" for God "coming down" to "visit us") but that was it. 

He was about to ask the congregation to turn to their Bibles but found that at least 90% didn't even bring one, so he asked them if it was okay that he just talked and paraphrased from memory scripture that he was going to use.

The congregation lapped it up like sheep that have gone astray. I closed my Bible half way through as it was obvious it was not needed. 

This is the 3rd and probably the final time I visit the church to see what is going on. The whole "outpouring" is a complete work of emotionalism, hype, lacking any kind of Biblical discernment and demonic spirits masking themselves as the "Holy Spirit" (like you see in Eastern Mysticism)...

Keep up the good work. I have written a report myself on the goings on in Cwmbran. If you would like to see what I witnessed in one meeting let me know. 

God Bless!

I am very grateful to Mr. Steven Thomas for his integrity and willingness to share and put his name to this very important feedback. I publish this in the sincere hope that readers of his report will loudly hear the alarm bells ringing, and avoid Victory Church and its utterly false "Welsh Outpouring" like the plague. For it is indeed an End Times spiritual plague!

(Please read and consider Steven's report in conjunction with the very first article on this blog posted on 16 May, 2013: "The Welsh Outpouring - A Refreshing or a Deception?" which outlines some very real concerns about Tommy Tenney, friend and mentor of Pastor Richard Taylor).

I would be more than pleased to receive further reports from Steven or anyone else out there who is able and willing to share concerns about what is happening in Cwmbran (or anywhere else in Wales for that matter!) Either post a comment, or send me a personal email at:

IMPORTANT UP-DATES, 12/11/14 & 18/11/14

This article has been amended to comply with an email received from Mr. Ray Bevan this evening, and I have no problem in apologizing to readers of the article as it originally appeared in which it was stated that Mr. Bevan had divorced his first wife when as I am now informed it was she who had divorced him. Mr. Bevan's contact and my reply are reproduced below, in the interests of transparency.

This is my reply to him:

Hard on the heels of what might be billed 'The Biggest Show in Town' aka 'The Welsh Outpouring' at Victory Church in Cwmbran, comes one of the biggest acts on the pseudo-Christian stage today!  Mr. Benny Hinn, Charlatan Extraordinaire, will be appearing live at King's Church in Newport, this very weekend! 

Any genuine believer in the REAL Gospel, and the TRUE Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, should be hugely concerned by this development. Bringing this ghastly individual to Wales is VERY bad news indeed for Wales, and further brings Christianity in this land into disrepute. Ray Bevan and King's Church are doing Newport a colossal disservice by giving a platform to this man who persistently mars the Name of Jesus - and makes the Faith a mockery - with his fakery and false prophecies and grotesque antics. 

With this exceedingly unfortunate event, the Enemy's infiltration of Welsh Christianity continues apace. With the willing assistance of undiscerning Pastors like Robert King (Two Locks Church, Cwmbran), Richard Taylor of Victory Church and Ray Bevan of King's in Newport, we have seen the arrival and "ministering" of big-name false teachers like Todd Bentley, Tommy Tenney, Lou Engle and now Benny Hinn!

Make no mistake. Wales is under attack. Major attack! And we are called to stand. Firmly upon the Rock of our salvation! We are NOT to tolerate, and indeed we are to shun, the promoters and proponents of "another Jesus... another spirit... another gospel!" (Second Corinthians 11:4). There are, sadly, in these Last Days, many who come in the name of Jesus, claiming to do great things in His Name. But in the Judgement, the Lord will say "I never knew you!" (Matthew 7:23). Not "I knew you once, but I don't know you now." The pronouncement will be, "I NEVER knew you!" Sobering thought, huh? Such men will have freely used the Name of Jesus. TO DECEIVE!!!

Please, please, do your homework. Do some research. Above all, read and digest the Bible, and hold to sound doctrine. An emotionally-based faith can make one open to all manner of deception; after all, "the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9). But a Word-based faith is founded upon the ultimate Wisdom that endures for all time. It is not for nothing that John declared of the Second Person of the Trinity, "The WORD was made flesh..." (John 1:14).

This is a time when nothing should be taken at face value. Just because a (supposed) great 'man of God' uses Jesus' Name does not necessarily mean that he knows the True Jesus, or that the True Jesus knows him! 

"Be ye therefore wise as serpents, 
and harmless as doves."

(Matthew 10:16)


The Welsh wing of the ecumenical "Churches Together" movement in the UK is called "CYTUN." (Pronounced CUT-EEN). It is the Welsh language word for "AGREED."

The dictionary definition of "AGREED" is: "TO BE OF THE SAME OPINION." And it is of VITAL IMPORTANCE to bear this definition in mind as we look at the organization's role and significance, as this AGREEMENT between its members is the cornerstone upon which CYTUN was founded in 1990, and which has underpinned all their activities ever since. 

The Scripture speaking of AGREEMENT which lamentably applies here is:

"Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves..." 

(Isaiah 28:15).

"With HELL are we at AGREEMENT!" This is the sickening and ultimately horrifying reality of what CYTUN is really all about! For they have truly made LIES their refuge, and under FALSEHOOD have they hid themselves! Theirs is the utterly FALSE UNITY that comes of an End-Times refusal to endure sound doctrine, and a deadly desire for concord whatever the cost. And their greatest compromise of all is with the unspeakable, LYING harlot that is the Church of Rome! (See Revelation Chapter 17).

CYTUN is Chaired by Dr. Patrick J. Coyle of the Roman Catholic Church, who is there for one purpose only: to represent the interests of the VATICAN! Doesn't this in itself set loud alarm bells ringing, that the man in the top seat is beholden to the Pope? And whether it is the present Bishop of Rome, or a future successor, the leader of the Catholic Church is the primary candidate for being the False Prophet of Revelation, the Antichrist's Satanic side-kick who causes all men to worship him and receive his mark! (See Revelation Chapter 13).

Despite the absolute abundance of proof that the Catholic Church is completely apostate, and preaches "another gospel," Churches here in Wales - as elsewhere - have fallen over themselves in their rush to jump into bed and commit willful spiritual fornication with the great prostitute herself! And have no shame or much less any repentance for so doing!

The fully signed up (Category A) member Churches of CYTUN are twelve in number. These "A-Listers" include not only the Catholic Church itself, and its close cousin The Church in Wales, but also the likes of The Baptist Union of Wales, South Wales Baptist Association, the Methodist Church, the United Reformed Church, the Union of Welsh Independents, the Congregational Federation and the Presbyterian Church of Wales, amongst others...

Is this raising eyebrows? It certainly should be! If your own Fellowship falls within one of these groupings, then you really, really NEED to be aware that your Church has entered into AGREEMENT with, i.e. is OF THE SAME OPINION AS, a Church whose heresies, false teachings and practices are legion and extremely well-documented:

Transubstantiation (god-eating), Vatican infallibility, purgatory, works salvation, confession to priests (who call themselves 'Father'), Absolution, the Mass, the rosary, a Bible that includes the Apocrypha, Marian (demonic) apparitions, praying to images, bestowing of sainthoods, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera... A vast catalogue of gross errors, which no born-again Christian should venture within a million miles of, never mind be a willing partner to!


We ignore at our peril the hard fact that the Catholic Church regards itself as the ONLY TRUE CHURCH; the intent is, as it has always been, to bring ALL of "Christendom" under its wing, and under the "infallible" authority of the Papacy!  This is what ecumenism is all about; the bringing together ultimately of all "Christian" factions - indeed all faiths - into the One World Religion of Antichrist! 

It is also of the UTMOST IMPORTANCE to understand that even if your own Church is NOT one of the 'A-Listers' of CYTUN, it could still be similarly compromised by its membership of a LOCALIZED "Churches Together" syndicate, snuggling up under the CYTUN umbrella, e.g. 'Llandudno Churches Together' in the north, or 'Chepstow Churches Together' in the south. Such local individual Churches who have ventured off the narrow way and gone down the broad road that leads to Rome can - and do - include those of "Pentecostal," "Evangelical," and "Independent" persuasion and labelling. BELIEVER, BEWARE!!! CHECK OUT YOUR CHURCH'S CONNECTIONS!!! AND ACT ACCORDINGLY!!!

Doesn't Scripture specifically teach:

"Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils. 
Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?" 

(1 Corinthians 10:21-22).

True unity can come only through the unfeigned fellowship of genuinely born-again believers, those who are OF THE SAME OPINION on the essentials of the faith and adhere unreservedly to the sound doctrine of the Narrow Way; any attempted partnership of those who are NOT of the same opinion on the NON-NEGOTIABLE elements that constitute "the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" (Jude v3) is inevitably a false and deceptive unity. Which is fabricated not in faith and faithfulness, but in unbelief and rebellion against the final and absolute authority of the Word of God, which clearly instructs:

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
And what concord hath Christ with Belial? 
or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people."

 (2 Corinthians 6:14-16)

Will YOU bow down to the Pope and kiss his ring, as that shamelessly apostate, Druid disgrace to Wales, Rowan Williams did? Will YOU consent to and submit to all that CYTUN does in direct disobedience to what is unequivocally stated in these verses? The temple of God CANNOT have AGREEMENT with IDOLS! 

For those true believers who find themselves compromised by such an agreement that their own Church has entered into, the next verses tell us the only proper response to make:

"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." 

(2 Corinthians 6:17-18)


"Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. 
And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it." 

(Isaiah 28:17-18)

The following quote is taken from a sermon, often attributed to Charles Spurgeon but actually by one of his students, Archibald Brown, entitled "The Devil's Mission of Amusement" but commonly known as "Feeding the Sheep or Amusing the Goats?" Dating from 1889, it is every bit as relevant today - actually, I rather think, MUCH more relevant! - than the day it was delivered:

"My first contention is that providing amusement for the people is nowhere spoken of in the Scriptures as a function of the Church. If it is a Christian work, why did not Christ speak of it? 'Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.' (Mark 16:15). That is clear enough. So it would have been if He had added, 'and provide amusement for those who do not relish the Gospel.' No such words, however, are to be found. It did not seem to occur to Him.

Providing amusement is in direct antagonism to the teaching and life of Christ and all His apostles. What was the attitude of the Church to the world? 'Ye are the salt,' (Matthew 5:13) not the sugar-candy - something the world will spit out, not swallow. Short and sharp was the utterance, 'Let the dead bury their dead.' (Matthew 8:22). He was in awful earnestness."

With this stark warning in mind, we will now have a look at a certain initiative of the Towy Community Church in Carmarthen, 'PROJECT XCEL'

What is 'PROJECT XCEL' exactly? Well, it is a SECULAR business plan, for the conversion of an old cheese-packing plant at Johnstown near Carmarthen into a 'community' complex, which has at its heart a TEN-PIN BOWLING ALLEY! It is the Towy Community Church's proud boast that it is the first church in the UK to open and run such a venture. 

It is described as "a unique partnership between the County Council and Towy Community Church and other agencies." No agency the church has partnered with to finance this project is Christian in nature. In fact, what is particularly disturbing is the fact that the great bulk of the necessary capital has come from the Community Asset Transfer Fund, to the tune of no less than £798,202. This is LOTTERY MONEY, distributed via the Welsh Assembly Government! In plain English, 'PROJECT XCEL' has been launched by the unashamed acceptance and use of the proceeds of GAMBLING!!! And with this incredible compromise comes the condition that a recipient of such funding has to publicly acknowledge the source. So you now find the Towy Community Church actively encouraging GAMBLING by displaying its National Lottery affiliations for all to see!
The Lottery is, of course, promoted as a "fun" thing to do. Like Ten-Pin Bowling is a "fun" thing to do. Amusement. Assuredly not feeding the sheep, but certainly amusing the Gospel-rejecting goats!

Sugar-candy pseudo-Christianity. Being a great friend to the world. Giving the world what the world wants. Conforming to the world's expectations. What does the Bible say about such things?

"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

(Romans 12:2)

So 'PROJECT XCEL' cannot be in the will of God. In fact, bearing in mind the church's partners in this wholly unholy enterprise, His Word baldly states:

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
And what concord hath Christ with Belial? 
or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people."

 (2 Corinthians 6:14-16)

XCEL BOWL's shameful logo: a CROSS with a BOWLING BALL at its centre!

Error breeds error. Towy Community Church believes in the restoration of the "Five-Fold Ministry" which is intrinsically linked to the principles of what has become known as the New Apostolic Reformation or the Third Wave movement, with its attendant emphasis on (false) Signs & Wonders and Dominionism (whereby the world is won politically, religiously and socially for Christ PRIOR to His return). Elitist, hierarchical, completely unscriptural and utterly in accord with the great Falling Away of the Last Days!

As the Christian Research Institute astutely observes:

"The teachers of the 'Five-Fold ministry,' in seeking to 'restore' a foundation which has never been moved, are actually laying a false foundation which will not support the building up of the body of Christ."

The full text of this article can be found at:

Just why the Towy Community Church has gone down the unrighteous route it has, can perhaps be explained - but in no way excused - by a key New Apostolic Reformation principle called 'theocracy,' which is essentially the working out of Dominionism in practice: having 'kingdom-minded people' in ALL AREAS OF SOCIETY. Seven areas of society are specifically identified:

Arts and Entertainment.

'PROJECT XCEL' fits exactly into this New Apostolic Reformation model.  
A model which goes completely against what the Word of God teaches:

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God."

(James 4:4)

The apostate notion of partnering with the world is very much on the rise in "Christian" circles. Rick Warren, for example, believes that world peace can be achieved by a partnership of faith (ANY faith!), politics and commerce. One has to wonder what Bible he reads. It must be one that has been hugely edited and re-written! Suffice to say that the true Christian position is that we are IN the world, but we are not OF the world! Befriending and emulating the world and the things of the world brings not closeness, but ENMITY with the Creator! He wants the sheep fed, not the goats amused!

Most regrettably, this whole sad saga of flesh-pleasing, sugar-candy Carmarthenshire "Christianity"does not end there. XCEL unashamedly applied for a licence to SELL ALCOHOL! Opposed by a former Police officer who lives nearby, concerned that it would be putting children in harm's way by having a bar on the premises, his objection was overruled and a licence was duly granted for XCEL to serve alcohol from 10 a.m. to 9.30 p.m. The Local Authority granting the licence is, of course, one of Towy Community Church's prized partners in 'PROJECT XCEL!' No surprise there, then! 

Let's face facts. Alcohol is one of the greatest and most insidious "socially acceptable" evils of our time, with an incredibly negative effect on so many of this country's young people. Yet here is a CHURCH, rather than making a stand against this destructive tide, actively DESIRING to participate in - and make the tills ring from - the sale and consumption of alcohol! In a supposedly family-friendly environment at that! One might ask, is their beer as watered down as their Gospel is? 

Didn't Jesus teach:

"And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me."

(Mark 8:34)

Take up his cross.
 Not his bottle of booze!
Take up his cross. 
Not his bowling ball!

"He that hath ears to hear, let him hear."

(Matthew 11:15)


"Ye are the salt" 
the sugar-candy!
