We have approx. 7+ yrs. of posts here and one thing I don't recall reading (but it might be in here) is that G & his possee (may be spelled wrong) were on staff at Victory Tabernacle Church of God on Genito Rd. in Chesterfield County when they first came to VA. They make it sound like they came here and opened the ROC the 1st week they were here. No, they were hired staff at another church for 9 months.
We are fooling ourselves if we think that these unproven blog posts (by that I mean proven in the public media/courts) are going to stop all these other churches from supporting them, and Faith based money (gov't $$$) from going to the ROC we are mistaken. THAT is where they get the bulk of their money - not the tithes of the people. Although that is a substantial sum, it probably doesn't touch the other funding they receive.
Alot of the stuff it is said they do on this blog is really baby christian behavior. Just one second after you're born again you would know not to do those things.
I am really sorry for all the hurts folks have had over there. God does see and care about your pain. He will take care of you if you let him. If you've been there for a long period and still being subjected to their crap it is really your own fault. DON'T KEEP LETTING YOURSELF BE ABUSED!!
If you have been a christian for very long and you are REALLY seeking God, the spirit will warn you. PAY ATTENTION!!!!
I can agree with that to a point. Except for the fact that the vast majority of those who have posted here in the past (many of whom were hurt spiritually, emotionally, or otherwise) are telling their stories to clear the air and to attempt to bring accountability. I don't want the ROC to dry up and go away - but an upheaval and changing of hands in leadership is necessary.
And you could say that if you're saved, you shouldn't make comments related to anything on this site, let God take care of it. If God gave you the power to heal others physically, would you sit with your arms folded and wait for God to do it? I sure hope not.
