They said today at the new Church they would keep their lic but the Church would not be COG.

How does that work though? I'm surprised that is allowed in this instance because, in the COG's eyes, SP and JL have started a church (not a COG church) that is further dividing and taking away members from FWC which is an established COG.

I'm not disagreeing with leaving FWC; I'm a former attender myself. I'm just curious as to how this all works. I'm surprised the COG doesn't revoke their license considering the circumstances.

You know something, I bet ole Satan does more investigating of his intended converts than TIM HILL (2nd General Overseerer from Cleveland, TN) did when he sold his unrighteous soul to the devil for $1,000,000,000 plus Ken Wright (I guess its a package deal - you know 2 for 1). You know something else, there's some people that even the devil doesn't want in his camp. This money won't last forever, but GOD and His word will stand for eternity.

Yep, I believe you are right. Good old boys. Church of God is seemingly becoming an oxymoron - this organization is corrupt.

No, I think you are incorrect. I heard directly from people who know and KW was gone. He called TH in Cleveland and he intervened after KW told him about the individual who was pledging the $1 million.
If those who were at FWC will remember, TH spoke there back in the spring (I think spring). This was during the time when the deacons were starting to press KW in the deacon meetings about all the issues in the church and those relationships were becoming strained. I remember TH saying at one point in his message that KW's destiny was FWC (or something similar) and was generally really pumping him up. I also remember thinking how weird his comments seemed at the time. Because of this, I was not at all surprised when I heard that TH was the one to intervene on behalf of KW.
hmmm, so if I copy and paste this and send it to TH, you won't mind at all? I wasn't there, so i do not know what was said, but I do know that we should be working for God's Kingdom and all this stuff is only tearing it down. If it is true, what's the use of posting it and spreading it around. Isn't this damage also? we need to be praying for God's Kingdom and not get caught up in Satan's trap.

I'm simply telling you what I heard from very realiable individuals close to the situation. Working for God's Kingdom? Is that what the leaders of the COG are doing? Making backroom deals and using the church as a means to exert power and control? If you don't think transparency and accountability are important within the leadership of a church organization (especially a church organization!), then, no offense, but it's becoming more and more apparant why the COG finds itself in its current situation. The truth should never be something that we seek to bury and, if it is, well then...the answer lies within.

maybe just maybe that $1,000,000,000 came from good old TIM HILL's pocket. I heard it came from Ohio. Good friends from Ohio have to look out for each other and they are friends going back to Hill's days as State Overseer in Ohio. We have been told how "high on hog" that bunch in Cleveland, TN live. You know jets, fancy cars, huge homes, rolex watches, etc. probably wouldn't miss a million here or a million there, that's just pocket change for them the way they live.

EXACTLY ... WHAT YOU HEARD ... that's all I have to say ... and why are you getting so defensive? hmmm ... very interesting. and.... no offense here either ... but if you go to any denomination, you are going to find trouble in any church ... and.... how do you know what the truth is ... we are not to judge ... only God knows the truth ... and we will all be judged for being on here and participating in this 3 ring circus. God bless and help you ... have a wonderful evening.

...What I heard from people directly involved in the situation. Take it or leave it, that's up to you. I wasn't aware I sounded defensive...You know what I find very interesting? That people get upset at the mention of holding the COG accountable for their actions.

Well since there seems to be a need for a new church building, you should know that Cornerstone Free Will Baptist in Crab Orchard is looking to sell their current building......

THIS should be about Praising the Lord and his love of each of us. Seems Raise(money) above Praise is the only why to have this church? Sad, The Lord will handle all this, money or not people filling the pews will make or break. Gossip or not, the lord will work in ways that amazing and loving.
Just pray for this church and it's people to be touch by god and not the amount in the plate.
God does not care if you give, but only your true heart to him.

yes, you are correct about the 10% tithes. but what you are not correct about and what you are spreading gossip about is the 1 million. why didn't you mention that? is some of this stuff what started causing the split at FWC. God has to be sick of this stuff. do unto other as you would have them do unto you. so i guess you are wanting people to start talking about you and your friends just like you are doing.
Well, if you read back to post 1074 you'd see I asked a question that was answered about the $1M. Then in the post you're referring to I asked a rhetorical question about starting a church if I had a $1M. I still don't see how that's spreading gossip. I'll take my judgement from God and not from you thanks.
Kool Aid update

This just in! The guyana flu (also known as wright fever) has now spread to Cleveland, TN. It has been reported that Tim Hill drank the kool aid! Updates to follow, stay tuned as Culpepper takes a sip, could this be the beginning of the end for the COG? Or will the guyana flu be stopped, the answer is in the wind. Only God knows for sure! Caution! If you attend the FWC be sure not to participate in communion, could be your last.

For your information, i don't have the need to go back to the post, simply becasue I don't won't to. this is sickening the way you are acting.... and the way you are using these posts. You better be glad I'm not judging you .. and you better watch out and be careful ... because not only is Santa Claus coming to town, but God is coming for HIS people... the peacemakers. You calm down, go read your Bible, get on your knees and pray instead of posting negativity about what YOU"VE HEARD on here AND ... HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY! and if you have a Christlike heart, you would be praying for everyone involved in the situation, including the COG. love ya brother and I'm am proud to be COG! God Bless you

I'll leave it thank you ... first of all, like I said before, you HEARD it. AND, I'm glad you find it interesting about accountability, because not only will the COG be accountable, but you and I will also, for every idle word we say on here. Good day ... I won't be posting anymore ... I'm washing my hands of this forum of deceit and lies. God please forgive us all.
