Stopping by for just a quick "hello". I am on my way to catch a plane to see my family for the Christmas holidays. Nitedork: Some times, some things need to be done in a face to face situation. Hopefully, some resolved and healing came out of your meeting. Have a great holiday. Thanks for stopping by. TS

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 characterize

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." -Maya Angelou A well learned tactic by spiritual abusers is the ability to hurt people emotionally.

I couldn't agree with you more Frank. And on top of all that, they think that what they are doing (the name calling, the labeling, the questioning of your faith and salvation for daring questioning them) is all done in the name of God's love. How does anyone justify hatred - even to the point of calling another Christian "brother" a pieces of crap that needs to be flus

One of the comebacks I have heard said when a person confronts a Mitchellite at the Lighthouse is "Why don't you go out and get someone saved?" This is done in attempt to to make the person who confronts the spiritual abuse, false teachings, manipulation and outright deception to look like they are unspiritual, divisive, and even a non-christian. However we know that Paul t

Ahhhh the "GET OVER IT!" mantra. Next, it will be "You are just bitter!" And then it will be "Can't you just move on?" As I have learned these are the typical CFMisms that you have learned from Scribner and Mitchell to parrot back to those who have concerns about the church and it's direction. You don't want to deal with the issues! C

Frank, what are your thoughts about this "3 days to repent" correspondence that Rob Scribner and Harrison Sommer wrote to those who wanted nothing to do with Wayman Mitchell in their Foursquare church anymore?

Characteristics of a "image oriented leader": 1. They operate from a false basis of authority; 2. They lack integrity; 3. They wear their spirituality on the outside; 4. Spirituality is a put-on performance, an image they project; 5. They require the recognition of people, calling it respect; 6. They point to themselves as the primary source of knowledge, direction, au

By now all of us have heard of the disgusting racist slurs by Michael "Kramer" Richards toward a couple of African American patrons at a Los Angeles comedy club. This news story triggered something that I read on a pro-Mitchell website a few weeks ago before my vacation. The website had a transcribed sermon by Wayman Mitchell entitled "Blueprint From Heaven". The sermon

One of the things that sticks out like a sore thumb is when you question or confront wrong behavior is the justifying response. Here are a few responses I have heard in the past: "Nobody is perfect, you are just picky" "We preach an uncompromising message, that is why people don't like us" "Look at all the churches we have planted and our missionaries&quo

Hamas and Hebollah believe that they are doing God's justice by hurting and killing people in the name of God. The Lighthouse pastors believe that they have the power to bring God's justice down on to people. Case in point, read Free Agent's last point what happen to Pastor Schmidt.

It is not that I don't believe in divine healing, it is that so much of what is done in these "crusades" is subjective and questionable. Why not have doctors there to verify the illnesses and the healings at these crusades. It would squelch the claims of emotionalism and manipulation, don't you think?

There have been other posters to this site such as Free Agent, Nightdork and others who have validated the same experiences at the Lighthouse. It is not hearsay. As for speaking with Scribner, I was about to do that, but I got advice from other Foursquare pastors and they told me just forget it. He is stuck on Wayman Mitchell.

I disagree, your analogy is still faulty by using the supposed King Saul principle even when it comes to authority and submission. Too many pastors think they can control and manage people's lives because they have this supposed authority. My question to you, what are submitting to? Why do you need to submit to a pastor? What do you need from him that you can't get from God, Jesus,

If you take the idea of the pastor being like King Saul or King David, and that their authority or actions cannot be question, then one condones attempted murder, murder and adultery with any consequence or removal from their position. Does that now mean that Ted Haggard, Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart and all the other immoral pastors should have never been removed from their position of ministry,

I just read Haggard's repentance letter. He says he is submitting to Jack Hayford, Scribner's overseer. Hayford needs to first take care of the problem in his own backyard and don't worry about what is going on in Colorado. Hayford knows what Scribner is up to but refuses to take action. He needs to clean up his own house before he starts telling others how to clean their house. N

Free Agent, you have picked up on a real truth here. These "revivals" are just times to reindoctrinate people into the CFM way. I remember some of my conversations with a few exLighthouse friends and they would say that Scribner would have these revivals virtually every month. He wanted wear people down emotionally and mentally to make them only think about the church and the church

FYI, Scribner is having a conference of some sort this weekend. Harold Warner, a Mitchell devotee, is preaching there. To all those who say Scribner is changing and becoming more Foursquare, you are lying to yourself. Scribner wants the cult of Mitchell to have a base of operations in Santa Monica. That is why he has these Mitchell worshipers come and indoctrinate you with their twisted theolog
