here's an idea...

LET GOD HANDLE THIS ALL. It is no one's place to speak their opinions on the situation.

LET GOD HANDLE IT. Step back, shut your mouths, stop posting harmful comments and opinions and just LET GOD HANDLE IT!

i do not attend fwc. disgruntled members from the church approached me. they told me of this "inappropriate relationship". I asked others of the church about this. They informed me that those families have been friends for well over ten years. That situation is one that should only be dealt with by the two families involved. Obviously if those two families are that close of friends then who are we to persecute friends? If we can't talk to our friends about our problems then who can we talk to? If the Pastor's wife does not have a problem with the two of them having counseling sessions away from the church then no one else should have problems with it. Also, the disgruntled church members told me themselves that he does council men the same way. Perhaps some people would rather not be in a church setting for a counseling session.
suppose all of this is true...do you not think it would be wise for the pastor of a church to desist in counseling this particular woman in this particular way if it were causing so many problems and questions as to their nature of their relationship within the church and community? i know for a fact the deacons approached him with this and questioned the appearance and wisdom of such decisions. the pastor, knowing all of this, continued counseling this woman in this manner because....? i do not understand the rationale.

I was not addressing everyone that has changed addresses for their house of worship. I was addressing the needless bashing, banter, gossip, etc. that is taking place on topix. I stand my my earlier statement that this is not the appropriate place to handle such issues. This will only do damage that is not necessary.
Why would you stay at a church where you don't agree with whats being preached? Maybe that gut feeling is trying to tell you something. Don't be deceived by every wind of doctrine.

Re; a question

Agreed. Everyone should realize that, no matter what church you attend, you should leave if you disagree with the doctrine. That's not to say you won't disagree with certain opinions or events. But if you disagree with the doctrine, you need to get out.

Regarding the alleged inappropriate relationship....i really hope this is not the case. However, walking in a park and being seen in a car are not always signs of an affair.

What about that statement says that I dont agree or that I even attend FWC to begin with? I am trying to address the issue that nothing good can come from spreading rumors about this issue online.

Im sorry but I dont agree with this crap of so called members telling other members to move on if they dont like the church doctrine. Excuse my mouth lord but that is just BULLSHIT! You dont come in to a church and change things so much that the deacons dont agree with you. Your suppose to work with the the deacons and keep things the same and build on it not go backwards. Not try and change the entire face of the church. The roots of this church were very deep before this man ever came. And now your saying he can tear it down and make it the way he wants it? I think the members that have been there for years should be the ones staying and the newbies should be finding a new church with there newbie pastor!

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother,‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
And the reason Im calling your names out is because you are the ruddest sounding

I'm just loving all this gossip. You people in southern West Virginia have had the hottest forum on Topix that is being read. I wonder if this forum out of West Virginia has had the hightest ratings of being read all across the county? It is all funny and kind of sexy.... dark rooms, big money in the offering plate, angry little men that are repressed, a good looking powerful leader who is a "gift", Please don't stop with your stories. This is getting better every day. Would make for great reality TV show. People would be laughing their asses off!

I'm missing some details here and trying to undestand the story. Who exactly is "satan"? Is that the minister's nickname for someone in the congregation? Trying to get the background info of the story and submit this to a reality TV producer.

I don't remember anybody saying anything about this pastor being "good looking" ... are you sure you are talking about the right church?

Well, your just fishing , trying to find out if anything went on. Just maybe, IF anything did go on, they'll do the right thing, and keep it inside the church.

I am in the Church! Whoever made the statement about the big event was the clown! Maybe you shouldn't be so self-involved in always posting thinking you are so HOLY and right!

RUDDEST? What is that? Something a deer does or what? hehe, look whos judging now. What a bunch of goof balls, from what I have read, looks like this would have never happened in a baptist church, all started with some woman speaking in tongues. hmmm I think something like this happened in another fwc church a long time ago, somewhere near Baton Rouge LA I believe. Keep up the bickering guys, I am sure God has something in store for all involved. If you dont want us outside guys speaking up, then you need to quit posting. And, do not even tell us we are judging when people like you are fueling the fire! You guys cant even keep your own house (church) in order so dont start quoting scriptures to me.

We may have freedom of speech and freedom of religion, but sometimes the best words we speak never leave our lips. Whether you are on the outside looking in or right the middle of the situation, it goes back to a child-like question...What Would Jesus Do?
I say stop the bickering and stop feeling like you have to be right...use the scripture personally and pray for those that you feel are in error. Your prayers can help that person or they can show you where you in fact may be wrong. I still say that we need to stop using this place to gossip or boast. If something happened yesterday, I am glad that it is not on here and if something never happened yesterday, just let it go.
Take pride out of this issue and this discussion and it dies.
Not judging, just preaching to self and sharing.
