that's true. and yet, when a pastor speaks lies directly at you, it's as if it happened this morning.
Could a person who lies consistently possibly have a psychological disorder?
Consider this from iVillage - Health and Well Being:
The condition that's most associated with pathological lying is sociopathy or antisocial personality disorder, which is characterized by a lack of regard for others' feelings and manipulating others for personal gain (or sometimes just plain amusement). People with antisocial personality disorder also frequently have erratic work histories and substance abuse problems and may engage in criminal activities. I suppose people with antisocial personality disorder can also have ADHD or bipolar disorder, but there's no inherent connection.[/color:33e40931f9]
It is downright frightening to hear what has happen to so many people at this church. The lies are used to keep people coming and giving.
A recent conversation I had with a lady who left about 5 years ago told me that if you took the Lighthouse congregation and transplanted them all into Wayman's church in Prescott, 95% of them would leave within 2 months. She said the truth is that they could not handle the no TV, no movie, no vacation rules, the monthly revivals, weekly outreaches, and other demands to prove that they are real Christians. You see, even Scribner doesn't keep the rules - he is playing a religious game - trying to feed his massive ego from the mouth of Mitchell and Warner. This lady saw Rob one time give a 10 minute kiss-butt introduction to Harold Warner. What is the purpose for that? Only to hope he could get to preach in Warner's church?
It is so clearly evident that this place has nothing to do with the Christian faith, but to build a personal kingdom for a sad little man.
