I wonder what the fishing and hunting budget is at this church? All I ever see is J Deaver and his son either hunting or fishing on tv! I wonder if Jeff gets permission to hunt and fish for the tv shows? He has been known (recently) to tresspass on private property without permission to hunt. He has even been asked to leave and not ever come back!

But I agree that they are becoming a little commercialized...

They take parts of the bible and put it into a handout to justify sport hunting. It is called Sportsman Ministry. A good Christian wouldn't be hunting for "the kill," but to eat. In today's world there is no reason to kill bear or deer to survive. I've met some really demented people who attend that church and are "hunters" ... ah, killers!

we recently had quite the busy body to leave our church recently and start attending there... something about building? and now she is trashing our church and the members in it. if the people in that church are listening to her gossiping about others, should she not be called out on it?? from what i have heard they just listen.

Stacy Dyer is a man of God, although I do not see eye to eye with him, I respect him. I do not believe he would personally allow somebody to bash a another church. I believe they are going to the extreme and becoming to commercialied, but their hearts are in it. They feel this is what they need to do to win souls for the Lord, I hope they win a bunch. They are building another church, attendance is up, so they are doing something right.

If he is a man of God then the woods are full of them! Ask him did he ever steal from Vogel Park? Also he and Dayton ran a good scam on another man just a few years ago. Ask him what did they tell BK about the construction business he bought from them. They told him they would not start another company and the ink was not dry before they did!

A lot more people need God in their lives. God unites Christians together. It can be by way of sportmenship, funerals, meeting someone on the road that is in need of help with a broken down automobile, eating at McDonald's or anywhere.

Who are any of you to say that God is not in it? The last time I read in the Bible, God was working in the good, the bad, the sickness, the wealth, and the providing of feast during famine.
If God is in it, you can win with it!

Yes, Dayton has swindled alot of people out of land, money, and anything else he can. I can prove it, he did it to my family. It's sad really. If I was Dayton I wouldn't show my face in Union County.

i wasnt necessarily refering to the pastor of the church, as i dont know him... i was refering more to the members who listen to the bashing of another church....thats just not right...
i would feel like i a sub standard human being sittin inside of a Church building, claiming to be there to worship, but then sit there and trash anyone and everyone from another church to anyone who will listen.
all im saying is that this woman has a serious problem with it, and she needs someone to steer her straight.. i just feel that if maybe someone said to her something like," its really not a good idea to go around bashing a church and the ppl in it, or anyone else for that matter" that maybe she would think about what she says a little more... her words have hurt several ppl not only in the church, but in the community as well.

why do christians gossip and bash each other? I thought if you were a Christian person you would be caring, have fellowship and support one another. I know people are not perfect, but geez.

The world is full of hyprocrits, full of them, and churches are full of them as well. No church is exempt from it.
Geez I will tell you this, if you have questions or concerns, Stacy Dyer would be more then happy to discuss them with you. Please do not listen to a bunch of people on here. As far as the ones in the midst of gossip and the ones listening to it, they need to take a long look in the mirror. I know if Stacy heard it, he would stop it. What they do, he can not control, but I believe he stands against it.

It seems sometimes that Church going people are the worst to gossip about one another. I was always taught to love one another. Maybe they missed that sermon in Church??

FAITH IN CHRIST

People put their faith in every place but Christ. The people who gossips about Christians have no more room than the Christians. In this blog spot, at least people are in attendance to a church period.

Christ is not stepping behind your words or hiding out behind people. He is being pushed aside by a few here to spite negative draw for conversation. Put him first and the rest will take care of itself.

Is everybody at the largest church in Blairsville lilly white? Or what about the smallest church in Blairsville? It is a numbers game.... the only number is that if I talk about you then you will talk about me. Groups of people will focus on what there is to talk about because watching grass grow is no fun.

I hate to admit it, but one reason I don't go to church is because of the gossiping and back stabbing. I am not interested in that. It's sad that around here a person can't feel welcome at any church because there is always somebody whispering about you when you walk past them. I feel like church has become more of a social event and social status to some folks. It's not what you learned in church anymore, it is where you go to church. Anybody ever wonder why there are so many churches are here? It is because of the gossiping and backstabbing, truth is a group got mad at one group and decided that they could do it better and the next thing you know, we have a new church. Now I'd like to make it clear I am not talking about any one church in particular, I am talking about churches everywhere, not just here.

I do not let anyone steal my joy or close up heaven for me. Why should people you deem hypocrites, gossips or whatever keep you from attending church? I bet they don't stop you from going to the same grocery store, doctor or hair-dresser.

I agree completely! There is probably not a Church around that doesn't have its share of gossipers or those some would consider hypocrits however, I don't go to church to listen to them, judge them, condem or condone them, I go to praise God, to be fed, and to get the blessings He so freely gives me - WHEN I'M FOCUSED ON HIM and not the person next to me or two rows up or in the back pew. I don't let the sin of others steal my victory or my blessings just as I would hope my sins don't detere or detract from anothers' focus. We ALL sin, we all have faults, some may gossip, some may stray, some may deal with addictions, anger, any number of personal struggles. In a small town, it's very easy to know the secret struggles or weaknesses of our neighbors, but that is their cross and their struggle and their counsel with God, not ours to judge or worry with unless guided by Christ to assist or counsel personally and if that's the case it should be done one on one and in private, not at the expense of the person's reputation or feeling of judgement or unwelcomeness in God's house. Before we voice our opinions in regard to Churches or Church members, it would be wise to privately discuss our concerns with God and see what he wants us to do or say. I seem to recall something about "let he who is without sin cast the first stone" I haven't found myself to be at that point yet, are you?!!

I have to agree with you there. These folks that are attending church also go to the places you have mentioned. It's sad that people use the hypocrites and gossips excuse to stay away from church.
The bible tells us that we will know one another by the fruits we bear..what kind of fruit are we bearing? I'm not saying that to gossip about someone it the right thing to do, but are we living a life that won't have people pointing fingers..Just something to think about.
And before someone calls me a "holier than thou" I will be the first to admit that I sin daily and have to bow on my knees and ask forgiveness daily as a matter of fact several times a day.
