Thanks for the public admissions you have made on this board for everyone to read.
Your response on another thread, which has been closed, regarding where the money goes and how it is accounted for in ROC is, "I really don't care!"
You also said, "Do I really have any say so in what the govt. does with my money?"
Apparently that means you have no "say so" about any of the finances at ROC.
But you do with the US government. There is a published budget in detail, which includes the salaries of every official. There is an elected democratic government that you can vote out. And there is meaningful financial oversight through OMB (Office of Management and Budget), not to mention the media reporting whatever they find through available records. There is also the US Constitution and our laws which enforce accountability.
Most Protestant churches have similar accountability through democratic governance and bylaws, but you admit, "I am not one who cares about the politics of the church and the staff...why would anyone want to get rid of them? THEY built it with Pastor G because GOD wanted it!"
It appears from your admissions that there is no meaningful accountability at ROC and that Pastor G. can do whatever he likes. Apparently if you disagree with Pastor G. you disagree with what "God wanted."
Jesus said that many would come in his name, but he would not know them. He specifically warned about wolves in sheep's clothing. How do you know Pastor G. isn't one of the wolves, when there is no meaningful accountability or financial transparency at ROC?
Read the bible.
Paul recognized and criticized corrupt leaders in Galatians.
The bible also mandates accountability and leadership requirements for deacons, elders and evangelists.
Pastor G. seems to have no accountability whatsoever.
He appears to be little more than a dictator who can do virtually anything without meaningful oversight or financial transparency.
Thanks for clarifying the current status and situation at ROC.
