We have been contacted by some guys from the Flemish speaking world about Victory Outreach. They had seen the Prime Time Documentary and were struck at the similarities. They have loved ones who are totally controlled by VO and do not know where to turn.
The same level of control and misrepresentation about Christianity and the actual rehabilitation they are involved with. We came across the Belgium newspaper De Wereld Morgen which has an interesting article with comments on VO. These reports are about the Netherlands but from the photographs it clear it is a much stronger organisation in the Netherlands than it is here in Ireland.
Cult or not? By Axel Laporte.

DI has tried to translate to the best of its ability.
Victory Outreach Eindhoven took part in major city demonstration last Saturday which was quite impressive and was seen by a lot of people.
With drum rolls, colored text panels, and with supporters from all nationalities and skin colors, the procession went around the city of Eindhoven many times, like Joshua went around Jericho.
There handed out flyers and sung. Whether or not they are a cult or not… it was an impressive display.

Nav in your post and I want to say the following : Unfortunately, I have witnessed the reception of Victory Outreach Arnhem ( Netherlands ) .
The reception they had (thank God that it has been lifted ! ) Called The Home. Je got there helpless inside, was hard pressed to Jesus , God and the Bible , and that’s it … If you have a question or problem the answer was that you only had to pray and read the Bible .
Real help you there was absolutely not if there was not a Bible study or garden rakes and so you had free time , you were required to go handing out flyers on the street and with a lot of bravado and HG proclaim Jesus !
If you are not afraid or ashamed of it …. but PRAY ! Really not Dared or were you sick … GO …. ! You have nothing to want … do what you’re told !
You stayed there with all sorts of men in one house and had to do everything together. You are never alone, so if you wanted privacy you ‘d better sit upon the toilet. I had a private room but if you only at night .
When I was thrown out on the street hit , after 1 1/2 years, I asked my family to come and pick me up. When I went back to see if my stuff was still there . We found that my TV, video, DVD, coffee machine, computers, clothes, books, photos videos … everything had been thrown away ! !
Insurance fund was never paid and as a result I had to pay €45,000 for hospitalization and €40,000 for RIBW . (Private Treatment.)
They had to let me sign something and used my money furnish their own houses and on vacations , etc. .. etc. .. and I got the bill !
A cult? YES , there ‘s no doubt about it ! ! !
Do you really want to go all the way broken, you have to be there !
How about the other ‘s Home , I do not know, but you have been warned of this and you know , forewarned ……. I would say look at their website , but that is off the air, I really got taken in. Be happy so they can get no more cultists that way According to them you were a disciple made … well , forget it because you can get on very well without Victory Outreach Arnhem .

victory outreach Arnhem
If you ask the question are they a sect? I say yes , no doubt about it ! In 2003 I ended up at vo arnhem . Broken and gasping for more of God. I have fallen prey to these wicked, hard, vultures and especially money-grabbers . They make you believe that God communicates only through them, if you do not do what they say you are disobedient, and disobedience is sin and sin leads to death . Literally, it was said to me that if I did not obey I will die. They determine what you wear, what you eat, when you eat, what job is or not good for you. You have to report where you ‘re going and when you will return. And just for the record , this was true for all members of the Church . As a leader, you had to double the 10% tithe you were obliged to give larger amounts to so-called charity The pastors wife always said, first give to God than you pay bills . I was so naive and I was fooled. Ultimately, it is my home, studies , friends , self-esteem and a mountain of debt cost me . After five years I decided to leave . I know what a Cult is thanks to victory outreach . Literally I hit rock bottom. Today I ‘am fortunate to have left that misery behind and I have no more debt, a great job and a super nice house . But above all I am happy and I can enjoy life again. Also the VO Cult no longer exists in Arnhem and everyone has left the cult. They have not paid their rent and as a result they were kicked out of their VO home and have fled to Germany. The pastor is suffering from a psychiatric condition and he is suffering from mental torture, but physically there is nothing that can be discovered. He is suffering great pain. Their children have gone off the rails. One works in a coffee shop and is stoned and drunk, the other was placed in a psychiatric institution.
This happens sometimes when your past actions lead to….. What you sow you will reap ? İş this from God ? Judge for yourself !
They say to be forewarned is forearmed. Jesus said do not be like the Pharisees who at the corner of the street with a lot of noise so that everyone can see that they are praising Go, but go to your closet and pray to the Father !
If you ask me … I’m not impressed ! More surprised to see how these criminals with ties to go through life looking for the vulnerable types to brainwash them and then completely destroyed them behind closed doors.
İş this God ? Yes probably . But not the Almighty God I know !
