    This man sinned against his calling and should shut up and sit down. I am sick of these wackos who come in the name of the Lord only to find out they are prophesying when they are half drunk and have women back stage waiting on them. I think the church needs to wake up. This man has lost his anointing to preach as a leader of the flock. I am not going to change your mind, but mark me down, in time he will be back at his old stuff if he hasn't already. I have been burnt too many times and I refuse to learn the lesson again and again. He needs to get an "honest job" and go back and sit down and be a hearer under an anointed preacher or pastor/teacher.

    Can you start another thread, as requested by AJ five pages back, please? Is there any reason why you cannot be gracious and walk in love, honoring her request?

    In case you didn't read my post the first time I'll post it again.

    IF someone is in ministry (we all are).

    IF that someone sins (we all do).

    IF that same someone truly repents and does not continue in their sin (not all do).

    IF that same someone takes time away from ministry and receives Godly counsel (not all do).

    IF that same someone's relationship grows deeper and stronger in the Lord (not all do).

    IF God's calling is still on that person's life (God never kicks us aside but may change our direction somewhat).

    IF they are still willing and able to be used of the Lord (some are and some still carry shame [which is of the enemy] and aren't).

    WE can whine and moan and judge all we want.

    WE don't have to go to their meetings.

    WE don't have to donate to their ministry.

    WE CAN, however judge the fruit of their life and ministry NOW, not 7 years ago.

    Last I heard, if we truly repent, God throws our sin into the sea of forgetfulness.

    Last I heard, if we truly repent, He removes our sin as far as the east is from the west.

    Last I heard, our sin is covered and we are white, like the new fallen snow.

    Last I heard, God uses IMPERFECT PEOPLE.

    What about the thread about the young woman who was serving the Lord with all her heart and was raped and out of that trauma, chose the life of a porn star. Should she hide out in shame for the rest of her life because of the shame she brought to her parents, herself, the body of Christ???

    These stories are the stories of how Christ RESTORES us. Not partially, but COMPLETELY... to even BETTER than we were before.

    Put down your rocks, people.

    I guess some people can't read.

    Or choose to not comprehend.

    Thanks, Catchy.

    I didn't bring this topic up. It is a topic for all to read and then all should be able to post on this public forum. I think that there should be an apology for trying to manipulate the forum. I realize that she does not receive criticism well, but if we are going to have a forum then it is for all. Sorry, I will not, and refuse to put my comments anywhere else. If the Mods do not like it that I am giving my opinion, then they can ban me.

    TB is stepping out of the Will of God for his ministry. He needs to sit down before he hurts others with his grievous sins. If he is forgiven he will do this.
    But he actually never did step back from his ministry. He never missed a beat but with in a couple of months of his evil and wicked acts of adultery almost under the eye of his wife, he was right back at it. He will have God to deal with. In the meantime, I am not about to be bamboozled by his bullish determination to manipulate the Gift of prophecy!

    Gimme a break.

    I realize that she does not receive criticism well,

    Thank you, thank you very much. Gosh, Nikos, I love and respect you, too.

    but if we are going to have a forum then it is for all. Sorry, I will not, and refuse to put my comments anywhere else. If the Mods do not like it that I am giving my opinion, then they can ban me.

    You are SO outta here!!!


    TB is stepping out of the Will of God for his ministry.

    And you know this HOW???

    He needs to sit down before he hurts others with his grievous sins. If he is forgiven he will do this.
    But he actually never did step back from his ministry. He never missed a beat but with in a couple of months of his evil and wicked acts of adultery almost under the eye of his wife, he was right back at it.

    So you know him personally... have had personal conversations with him and have discerned the thoughts and intentions of his heart?

    He will have God to deal with. In the meantime, I am not about to be bamboozled by his bullish determination to manipulate the Gift of prophecy!

    Nikos, this is all your opinion. Nothing more nothing less. Thank you for stating your OPINION. Now you can move on.

    Was she engaged in the five-fold ministry of the Church? There is a difference in sins forgiven and the restoration of the ministry gifts in our lives.

    Wake up church! This is what is turning us off track from the things of God! In these days, we need the genuine and true and authentic gifts of God in our churches!

    I have spoken my view on this matter. I think you wanted a fuss when you started this trying to limit it to those who agree with you only. I think you should be encouraging forums and threads to be for all and not limiting them to your point of view only. That is divisive and not the Christian way of unity.

    Did you read the article about the young woman? Yes, she was out there speaking to young people, ministering in Jesus' name ....... go read it.

    You "think I wanted a fuss?" Really... now you're a mind reader.

    All I asked was that the thread not be a bashing session. His sin was 7 years ago. Does ANYONE want their sin of 7 years ago to be used against them now??? DO YOU? Cuz I sure don't. I'm not the same person I was 7 years ago.

    And shoot, it's always been my goal to be divisive and not in unity with the body. I thought everyone knew that about me.

    When you've had a sit down conversation with him, or even with me, for that matter, THEN you can judge by discernment, the thoughts and intentions of our hearts.

    O sure. If I talk to you then I will be able to discern HIS ministry. Somebody is really confused!





    I am out of here! So long!
