No one should be paid to do Gods work or run his church!!!

To Usetab I do think a pastor should be paid for the job he does. I DO NOT believe that people should hide behind the title of pastor. The Bishop at Baxley sold the parsonage, did not follow the rules of the church itself and misstated the age of the parsonage to the congregation, saying it was five years older than it really was, and now has saddled the church with a house payment that will go on for years. In this particular instance I agree with you, this kind of incompetence does not deserve payment.
When that same Bishop will transfer all of the property of the Baxley Church to the International Church without even telling the church. Most high school students could read the rules and know this was not right. Then again I have to agree with you, they do not deserve pay.
When that same man will knowingly accept payment for 800 plus members when the church has had only 300-360 members attending on most any given Sunday the I agree he does not deserve pay.
I wonder if the Bishop at Baxley has even read the church minutes if so he is very forgetful.
He doesn't know the rules, or he simply doesn't follow them. His actions indicate he will not hesitate to borrow money and place the Baxley church in indebtedness while obligating the church to pay for his house and pool in the country. By the way has he ever invited any of the tithe paying members to his new home, that is other than the council who voted to make the church pay for his house.
If this is the demanding job of a bishop in the Church of God then it may indeed be a good career path. Yet I agree with you maybe no one should be paid to do God's work.

it's ironic that the Bible counsels against judging each other. You people have spent months bickering and making accusations.
I recommend that all of you have a joint meeting and prayer service where you all apologize to each other and ask for forgiveness.
You have set a bad example for everyone and aided satan in his quest to destroy people.
I think if Jesus was on this earth as in Biblical times he would throw all of you into the street and lock the doors of both Churches.

To the devil: With such an intelligent comment as this I can see you certainly do not read or care about right or wrong. My bible tells me to 'contend for my faith'(Jude 1:3) Why don't you look up the definition of this word. While you are at it why don't you look at the words Jesus used against the deception, hypocrisy and out right lies of the Pharisees. To attempt to belittle someone because they defend those who stand for honesty and obedience to the word of God is true help for satan.
If you really want to know who is helping you (the devil) why don't you ask why it is acceptable for a bishop to get paid for having 700-800 members when there only 300-400 in attendance on a given sunday?
Why don't you ask why it is acceptable for church councilmen to meet in secret with the state overseer to discuss having a councilman excommunicated when they will not discuss it face to face in council?
Why don't you ask why it is acceptable for the pastor of a church to violate the rules of the church, the guidance in the bible and rules of the state and stand then before his concregation and referr to former members as 'cancers' and allow this person to call himself bishop? The truly sad part of this is number of people that did not care enough to learn the truth. All they had to do was ask.
Like so many people that rose up in righteous indignation against two men that only followed the rules, as iput forth in the bible, you care nothing about the truth or the souls of man. You only care for your own self and impressing people with your perceived righteousness. May God have mercy on all our souls and reveal the corruption that has been brought against these two men.
