Who knows wrote:
I heard the house was put into the churches name so he wouldnt have to pay taxes on it that the church would.But someone found out and then the deacons made him put in his name. But the girlfriend is living in it.
If the house was in the church name why were none of the members aware of the house? The deacons did not put a stop to the foolishness and the people that dont fix it that still go there are condoning it, thats the sad part.

Does it matter if its in his name or the churches name in the end it all comes out of the same pot! The church money! This cannot go on forever! In the end, I guess they will all have to go get real jobs, including that lowlife girlfriend. Can anyone imagine what it takes to keep, Carrie, Kevin, John, and Linda up , pay their bills ; including insurance, and basic utilities? All this has been coming out of church, & "school" funding...??...besides what "state-funding" Linda receives, and yes I do mean well-fare!

I also checked the Temple Christian Church and School.The church is listed as owner and total value of both is $462,700.00
Since the Catholic Church has been sued for sexual abuse by its priests and has paid out BIG money over these charges,it stands to reason that Temple Christian could be sued if John Price is convicted of sex crimes. Just saying...

if the 2nd house was given to the church by the mccrady gentleman in his will, would that not be embesselment if he put it in his name?

Why would they move? Who cares where they live? How do they afford new rides? They should enjoy themselves while they can because their free ride is almost over! None of them are smart enough to run a business of their own. They might have to get real jobs that actually require work.

Will 1 ) I would not compare John to my precious Saviour. 2) sometimes people will say things that could help the common wealth in their case. Give them things to check up on. I know people say alot of foolish things but some are need to know and some hidden truth comes out. If this really happened this girl has hid it and suffered for 3 yrs and you can see why her own mom wouldnt listen. 3 ) it is about time wrong is brought to the light not just the girl but the way the church is run and the way so called christians act. They by no means should carry that name. 4) yes tou are right God will judge and he will judge correctly not our way but his. Pray for their souls and all those involved.
