Glossary of Jesus Lifehouse (In alphabetical order)
Blue Book, Green Book
Blue and Green Books are the guidebooks of discipleship written by Pastor Rod. Blue Book is for elementary level and Green Book is for advanced level. Both books can be freely downloaded in Apple Apps Store or Android Market. Blue and Green Book are solely approved discipleship course in Jesus Lifehouse covering different Christianity topics presented in simple ways. Leaders of the church have an illogical rationale that “simple is the most complicated" so members can only read the Green and Blue books repeatedly after completing the two books.
Journaling is one’s feelings or thoughts after studied the Bible and to be shared in Lifegroup gathering. Jesus Lifehouse encourages brothers and sisters to study holy bible but do not to teach them the correct way to understand the Bible. One may interpret the bible in eisegesis in personal bible study but correctly handles the word of truth is the requirement set by the Lord (2 Timothy 2:15).
Leaders include Pastor, church management and Lifegroup leaders (or cell group leader). Leadership in Jesus Lifehouse is manipulative in nature whereas brothers and sisters has to be obedient to the leaders’ notwithstanding reasonable or not. Leaders like to change the decision of brothers and sisters by challenging them so many felt judged and were emotionally hurt. Leaders also request those cannot accept the teaching of the church to leave for another church.
Lifegroup / Lifegroup Leader
Lifegroup is a small group composite of either all males or all females leaded by a leader similar to fellowship or cell group like other Christian churches. Lifegroup leader has absolute power; members may be called upon for interrogation if they have any doubt against the church or Lifegroup leader.
Pastor is the key leader of the church.
Most Pastors in Jesus Lifehouse were not trained in theology and even on reading Bible, though minorities of them were trained in leadership school in Hillsong Church. The church even asserts there is no need to study the Bible at any theology schools but only to study it in the church.
Red Book is written by Pastor Rod Plummer about relationships. Red Book is similar to other Christian books about relationship. It comprises Mr. Rod’s personal shepherding experience and scriptures. However, same as Blue and Green Book, the Red Book is the only material that has been approved for teaching in Jesus Lifehouse.
Sermon in Jesus Lifehouse generally includes three main points about the Bible or God’s words. As the pastor lacked biblical and theology training so the content of sermon are often too simple or even unbiblical. Most sermons do not cover much about the Old Testament except Psalms or Proverbs.
