Send (Carlton Bishop Pearson) Him to Detroit;

God knows Detroit, MI has always been jealous of Chicago and Chicagoans. Speaking of Great Artist, Singers, Gospel, Blues, etc came from New Orleans to Chicago (up the Mississippi River) Jazz, Blues, Gospel and the Artist Greats came from Chicago . Even Aretha Franklin is from the Mississippi River Region (Memphis, TN) not Detroit, MI. Send him over train, bus or 94 East to Bovine and Country Bumpkin Detroit, MI. He'll fit in with that "Mo-Town" look over there and they all look like him over there from their politicians on down.

As gently as I can I say to you, unless you receive checks in the name you are using to post your comments you are not using your real name. If there is some reason that you feel the need to not be recognized then you are hiding. That doesn’t make it good or bad, it just is. Regarding credentials you seem to have an issue with me including part of the who I am to provide background for my comments. While you took it to mean one thing I meant it to be no more than someone else saying, they’ve attending CUT for x amount of years or they are second generation members. Follow me, follow me? Whatever I have been doing and whatever I do with these teaching I will continue to do because that is what I’m lead to do, enough said. There is so much more I could say to you regarding this matter but suffice it to say this, in oneness we reside but in that oneness not all residents are friends. Blessings and Bliss
This is not the time or place for you to interject your credentials or to put in a bid for people to follow you in non-sense. Stop trying to rationalize your non-sense. This is not the time or place, you are not the focus or issue here. Thank you very much.Peace Be Still.

You have an ego problem, again this is not the place to air your discomfort with your self, and I am saying this to you as gentlely as I can. Stop and take a look at yourself. Peace Be still.

Member-support from thread #93
Sounds like you are another wolf in the making. Why should any member have to go to a website entitled colemonites.org to continue to build the legacy of their Founder/ Minister? They should be able to do it right there in their church and not be interupted, stopped or chastised for wanting to do what's right. The bleeding of money and the congregation must be stopped in its tracks. Stop trying to lead the people astray.
R. Ken writes
I agree with you that people should be able to continue to build the legacy of their Founder/ Minister right there in their church. It is certain that a hyper site will not, cannot nor was ever intended to be a place that the members HAVE to come to build or continue the legacy. What is happening at CUT will not be stopped by a web site nor will a web site be instrumental in leading people astray.
My question to you is not a difficult one,“Do you somehow think, believe or at all fathom the legacy of Rev. Dr. Johnnie Colemon is confined to the walls of CUT or even that of a museum if the legacy grows to that magnitude? May I help you with this one? The answer is a definite and resounding,“NO”! The pronoun “another” in reference to wolf and the Member-supporter indicates to me that you were present when the other wolf was being created. It’s unfortunate that you missed stopping the first wolf or wolfs in the making but your ears (your it “sounds like” comment) are off regarding this human transforming into a wolf. I hope the bleeding is stopped for the sake of the people who want a place to come to worship. Know this, the message of Johnnie Colemon will be spread by those who choose to; hopefully they will have learned a bit about what they are spreading before they spread that message. Blessing and Bliss.
As it has been stated in a previous post, it sounds like it is all about you. And yes you ARE ANOTHER WOLF IN THE MAKING AND ON THE HUNT. MAY YOU FIND THE COURAGE TO LOOK AT YOURSELF AND YOUR MOTIVES.

You need to remove thy self out of the way and stop trying to hide your motives behind the auspices of desiring to spread the legacy of a great icon. People like you are a dime a dozen. And it all boils down to misleading the sheep. And this I say as gentlely as I can.

This is so disheartening to me. I am looking for a spiritual home. God lead me to CUT in December for a recital my daughter was in. Before that I had never heard of New Thought, but I was abundantly intrigued, and skeptical as I was looking for a Bible based church. I felt the principals being taught, however, was enlightening and was praying and hoping that this was the way for me. Unfortunately, after reading all of this, I am no longer certain. I pray that everything sorts itself out for you all. I would hate to see such a positive congregation go the way of so many others. I am still hopeful that CUT can be my spiritual home. I will continue to watch and see what happens and pray.

The church is a Bible based church.The Bible should be interpreted and taught on 3 levels. Historically, Literally and Metaphysically. Metaphysians go beyond the physical/literal teachings and seek out the deeper meanings. A student who has a foundation in the principles of New Thought will apply these Truth teachings to their lives and their lives will manifest their understanding and applications of these principles. Whether for good or bad. It is focused on the inner man and not the outer man.

I pray that you will see thru the seeming appearances of what has been posted and continue on your path to seek God. You have been called, to fulfill a person, you might be the person who can make the difference in a positive manner.

THIS COMMENT IS FROM MY MAMA...WHO IS A MEMBER OF C.U.T FOR 36 YEARS...
==========

I came in Johnnie Coleman’s church in 1969, when we were on 86th and State Street...I have followed and loved Johnnie...more than half of my life…we have had MANY disagreements as people will...but everything was all about divine order.

I raised four children there...I worked with the media group...I AM and have ALWAYS tithed...

I was there when we were Christ Unity Temple...when Johnnie went through the hell...and its funny how the Bible says that the mountains will cry out and there will be no hiding place...and all of the snakes named
Carlton Pearson...
Walter Robinson...
Fred Nelson (who have professed to love and serve Johnnie for 30 years+ EVEN BEFORE BOB MAYS MADE HIS TRANSITION)...he said like Peter..."I am with you Johnnie"...and now all of the snakes are out and the sun is on them and they're crawling around on their bellies...

The BIGGEST LIE THAT WAS TOLD IS WHEN PEARSON SAID THAT HE TALKED TO REV. COLEMAN AND WAS IN AGREEMENT OF HIM TAKING OVER HER CHURCH...

That was one of the GREATEST LIES THAT HAS EVER BEEN TOLD by him and his colleagues...

Just like the Prince of this world who became the Serpent to entice Eve...so is Carlton and his crew…

I will turn 73 years young next week…and it is a sin and a SHAME that my Church home…has come to be filled with as much avarice and mendacity as the city of Sodom and Gomorrah.

And so it is….

Presently, Dr. Colemon is President Emeritus. However, she is not in any condition to address any of what is going on at Christ Universal Temple. She is alive and she does receive the best of care. However, she does not have access to what is going on.
Well, I'm glad she is alive, receiving the best of care & and is not aware of the fighting. I'm still sadden by the the state of affairs. Thanks.

I will say this...for myself...

I was DONE with Christ Universal Temple when I saw what they did to Rev. Joe Hill...and I'm not blaming that so much on Johnnie...but Helen and et al...THAT WAS DIRTY!!!

Because Rev. Joe Hill SHOULD BE THE ONE RUNNING THAT CHURCH NOW!!!

But that's alright...

Rev. Joe has his WONDERFUL church on 93rd and Commercial...the Power Circle and he preaches New Thought as if the spirit of Johnnie is running through him EVERY SUNDAY!!!

So...you don't have to stay over there in the "wild hundreds"...if you want a direct lineage to Rev. Johnnie Coleman...there is an alternative...and its right in the "hood"!!!

We love and Bless you both on your journey through this. May the Peace of God be with you always.Helen is qualified, experienced, knowledgeable and Rev.Colemon's trusted friend and appointed by Johnnie Colemon herself.If there was no Johhnie and Helen, there weould be no C.U.T.
Let's give credit where credit is do. Love you.

To everyone:
Let's stay focused on the main thing, i.e., a meeting with the Board. Let's not allow these other issues distract us from our objective. Remember when we would say,'We are the people,we have the Vision'? Hold the Vision in consciousness, know that God is in charge and all is well.

Pease read and meditate on Isaiah 42:16.
