Takeastand - I am sorry for what you are going through. Be comforted in knowing that you are not the only person who is dealing with the fallout of manipulation by Geronimo.
The important thing now is that you do not talk to the people on this site, or share your information with anyone here, because it will make it back to the ROC (which I am assuming it already has since you've posted here - if not - it will no doubt be spoken of very shortly). I would recommend first gathering any documentation you have (surely there are texts, phone records, etc. which you still have - protect them! Use them to your advantage to confirm your story).
If you have friends that can confirm anything or if they know, make sure they aren't blabbing about it - that won't be good if you're looking to gain credibility with this matter.
Build a case to show your innocence as a women who sought counsel and was repeatedly taken advantage of, along with any evidence such as phone records and texts for other proof. Pictures you may have together outside of church functions or church property will also be huge, as they would directly link him to personal time with you outside of the bounds of what would be appropriate for your relationship.
Also be sure that you are going to the right people to make this information known. The ROC unfortunately has many friends who will be willfully ignorant of anything not above board as they insulate them from trouble, so keep that in mind.
I didn't send this in a private message because I know Geronimo reads this and thinks about it often. Your time is coming to an end here in Richmond, and I believe you know it. You are a terrible shell of a man who has spent his life manipulating the weak and weary for your own benefit, and your ignorance to the fact that people know who you are and have seen the truth of your character will be your downfall. I won't say I hope you suffer because I know you must be a miserable human being. I, like so many others, just wish you understood the magnitude of what you've caused and created.
Takeastand - I wish you the best in your emotional recovery, and when the time is right, your desire to bring this information to light.
