ex-For Today guitarist says singer member of cult

Mike Reynolds suggests that Mattie Montgomery is in a cult Mike Reynolds, co-founder and former guitarist of Christian metalcore outfit For Today, has published a new article in which he suggests that For Today frontman Mattie Montgomery is the member of a cult. Reynolds begins his piece by explaining his motivations:
I am writing this for two reasons. First, because I served side-by-side with Mattie for 6 years I feel the responsibility to call him to alter his current trajectory and to re-align himself with Biblical truth. Second, because I care about young men and women who would seek to align themselves with Mattie and fall into a spiritually abusive situation. I want to see both Mattie and those under his influence succeed in pure and simple devotion to Christ.
At the core of Reynold's suspicions appears to be Montgomery's involvement in a church that belongs to "a network of churches all headed up by 'apostle' F. Nolan Ball." Reynolds states that in 1986 Ball founded what he says "every sober-minded person would consider a cult." You can read the entire piece here, though its merits appear difficult to discern for anyone not well-versed in theology and/or American Christianity. Furthermore, some question Reynolds' true motivation; you may recall that Reynolds and For Today hastily parted ways in January 2013, just days after Reynolds publicly called homosexuality "a sin."

Christianity is a cult. Just because something is large and socially accepted doesn't mean it isn't as ridiculous as anything else.

Isn't this a case of the Pot calling the Kettle black? And no, just because the clown in question happens to be black doesn't mean that this is some kind of racist comment... its just kind of ironic or something..

"Christianity is a cult" he typed, as he leaned back in his chair. He knew he had done it. He had opened the world's eyes to the lies that was Christianity. "If only everyone was a smart as me" he said, as he took another swig of mountain dew. "Maybe one day."


anonymous 3/31/2015 1:29:27 PM

This homophob c*nt needs to kill himself. Doesn't Christianity preach to love everyone as ur brother and all that crap. This guy is a hypocrite. Well then again so is the majority of jesus freaks. Wake up jerk religion is a scam fairtale and ur wating your life on your knee praying to something that doesn't exist. Maybe if you knew that you would be able to treat everyone equally. Save your hate speeches - the smart people of this world who know better are not listening.


anonymous 3/31/2015 4:11:00 PM

anonymous 4/3/2015 11:38:18 AM

Easy to point the finger and call Christianity a cult when your vision of acceptance is blinder than that of the most devout Christians. Calling Christians gays and cultists only shows your immature ignorance. The pathetic thing here is not that Mike Reynolds is engaging in massive hypocrisy, but that some of you "anti-Christians" are just making yourselves look like a bunch ignorant bigots. Seems to me like you people are the ones in a cult.


anonymous 4/4/2015 8:11:34 AM

Yeah the cult is called Christianity


anonymous 8/21/2015 5:36:04 PM

Wow, how sad. Geez guys you're both Christians. Can't you agree to disagree? Sounds like sour grapes for getting dumped form the band.
