Earlier this month got kicked out of YWAM KC because I stated that what they preached was a false gospel, as well as other reasons. Admittedly whilst what I said/ questioned was not with gentleness and respect, it still has merit. At the time my reason for discerning the gospel presentation was through Paul Washer’s Critique of the American Gospel (similar to ours) and His presentation, which has Biblical support. Now after coming out of YWAM, I realise that Romans was a good criteria for seeing a good gospel presentation. And I realise now that I’m back on Square one. I thought YWAM (or at least YWAM KC) was biblical, and I’m realising that this might not be the case.

I’m currently back in PNG. Mum (at the time when she first heard me getting kicked out, and the reason as to my post about persecution) was ashamed of me. Whilst she now understands that YWAM had rolled us over, she wishes to support me in Ministry, but to be honest I don’t think she’ll have a part to play, not with the current situation we have right now.
Right now, I’ve been going through a tough period. I’m back home in PNG and I’m trying to get in preparation for the British Army. I’m also now officially doing my own Bible Study, and have decided to start my own blog in 2020 sharing my experiences, and hopefully teaching others as well (perhaps God will see this faithfulness and reward it). Right now, I’m in a place where I don’t have a biblical church, and the one that I attend has no expository preaching, but Mum insists that I go for the sake of gaining perspective (I honestly don’t wanna go back, because I’m sick and tired of this stupid preacher that thinks he can talk about his own life and never anything to do with the Word of God). As I write this, I’m just depressed. I’m literally stuck in a situation where I can’t do anything.
In regards to YWAM, I’ve sent Apologia Studios (specifically their channel Cultish) to test the lectures that I’ve gained, and just to see what they can make of that.
But over time, that’s changed. During a time of prayer, I felt God give me the desire to head to Apologia Church as a means to connect to ministry. I’ve noticed things where Cultish plans to talk about YWAM and have good discussions about it, and it seems I may have a part to play in it the way events have been happening, so I’ve decided that whilst Cultish prepares, I’ll be testing the lectures myself in hopes that I may be a part of the discussion whilst doing my own study, in hopes that YWAM is actually humble to change itself.
But I’m not sure if this desire is actually from Him or not, or if the events are actually confirmations here. I’m still going to try though. Does anybody have any thoughts towards this?
