1. What is the most recent evidence you have of VO?

• I have recently spoken (via facebook) to an ex VO Dublin attendee about the RTE program and the ongoing abuse in VO. This took place about 6 months ago. I also have friends who are still in VO London and I’m kept in the loop of most of the goings on within. These people will not talk openly about the issues though, as they believe it is judgmental against ‘The Lords anointed’.

2. What were the circumstances of your departure?

There were quite a few issues that led to my wife and I having to leave VO London, but the main issue was the pressure put on local VO churches to help fulfill ‘Vision 2000’. Vision 2000 was a ‘word’ that Sony got from The Lord, to plant 1000 churches by the year 2000 (one of which was Dublin). A lot of funding and energy was being put into this project, whilst the local church was almost being neglected (we lost a lovely building at that time due to not having enough money for rent and bills). So called pastors were sent out prematurely just to try to fulfill this vision, which did not come to pass.

3. Were you involved in attempts to remove the leader at that time?

The leader at the time was a wonderful man called Brian Villalobos. I never once wished for Brian and his family to leave. Their sacrifice and commitment could never have been brought into dispute. To be honest with you, I have yet to meet anyone like him to this day. I encouraged Brian that if he left VO and started his own church, then he would have a very loyal following who loved him and would be happy to be led by him. I made it clear that it was VO and it’s cultic traits that we were rejecting and not him.

4.  What evidence have for your assertion that Sonny is raking in the dow?

 

Evidence is very hard to get in reference to what Sony has or hasn’t got, due to the mafia mentality that is ingrained through out VO. Sony and Julie both enjoy (and do nothing to stop it) the celebrity status and adulation from their followers. Sony rubs shoulders with the famous money men like Benny Hinn, John Avanzini, Morris Cerullo and Reinhard Bonnke to name but a few.

5. How do you explain their theology of sovereignty and central control.

 

VO is not really accountable to anyone, as they truly believe they have an anointing from God, which the world (system) can not stand in their way. I was always taught (and taught others) that all other churches were dead and that we were the only ones fulfilling the great commission. A good example of this is found on this clip of the 2011 World Conference, where Mario Murillo talks about VO doing whilst others are studying (1:45) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJEEaN8ltak

We were always encouraged as leaders to get as many people to the European and World Conferences at whatever the cost. This was part of the ‘internalizing the ‘Vision’ (vision being what God has shown Sony). The JW’s have the Watchtower, The Mormons have Salt Lake whilst VO has The Mother Church.

6. Have you talked to any recent defectors?

No.
