Mike has even gone so far as to say that his family and friends hate him and have turned on him. Now, I know for a fact that this isn't the truth (not even remotely close!) but rather Mike's bizarre and twisted version of reality that he promotes in order to both win sympathy for himself (from his acolytes) and to somehow act as a personal reassurance that he's really got his Christian shit together. Somehow, this nonsensical notion that Mike is "hated of all men" is meant to be a kind of sign, that Mike, his elder clowns and the general IWWB plebeians are on the right track and that they really are following the true Jesus Christ.
In truth, all it does is act as one almighty red flag and spells out clearly that Mike and his IWWB-loons have left all of the essentials of Christianity and are instead, promoting their own version of lunacy by pumping up specific scriptures that they see as important. For whatever it is worth, not a single person I have spoken with, who has left IWWB and thinks Mike is off the wall "hates" him or wishes him harm. I've never met one person yet who expressed hatred towards Mike, or anybody else in IWWB. Not a single one!
Whatever the case, it's clear that Mike's go-to scriptures of late are his "hated of all men" mantra, and his other favourite, "a man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, reject." (Titus 3:10)
Armed with these two verses, Mike can literally tear his way through any conversation, debate or conflicting opinion. After all, if any should take exception to his opinion, that's quite OK isn't it, and really, Mike would expect this. Remember, Jesus (apparently) said "you shall be hated of all men," so that explains why such and such and so and so have taken issue with Mike's teaching. No problem, another heretic out the door. Next!!!
This circular thinking is completely fallacious and serves as a kind of self-perpetuating prophecy on Mike's part. He's going into every situation already believing his is hated, and that everyone is out to get him. In his mind, he is the elect and his doting boy-elders are the multitude of counsellors. That leaves virtually everybody else. And how do they fit into the world-view of Mike? Well, they're obviously tools of Satan who are engineered to come against him and test his faith. The lunacy and psychosis of Mike's position is obvious to all but himself!
Here are some videos where you can hear for yourself Mike's foolish and attention seeking rhetoric. Hated of all men? Ah not really. More like shaking my head and shrugging my shoulders.
