Bishop Green Pastor of the HTC on 2075 Clinton Ave: Why is the church not coming clean about the problems it is having. The members of the church have no clue that it is on the brink of foreclosure. Members of the Headquarters church are all flocking to Columbia SC for a reason. Bishop Green is not an ordained apostle....so where is the leadership? Has Bishop Green ever repented for the issues that everyone in the church knows about? He never has and probably never will. The members of the church are in for some surprises in the very near future because the church's finances are on the brink of complete non-existence. There was financial trouble before Bishop Goodwin passed away. Now they have reached epic proportions.

WOWWWWWWWWW..........you have started up a thread that has hit home with me, I am in THE CHURCH IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST OF THE APOSTOLIC FAITH,INC.

I remember back in the 80's when God gave our then Apostle and general overseer Bishop L. Hunter the revelation that all organizations calling themselves a "church" had to be IN the name of the Lord, many didn't see it and accuse Bishop Hunter of perpetuating a fraud to take control of other people church property, which was a huge lie, and Bishop Randolph Goodwin was one of the main adversaries to the IN doctrine which was totally Bible based and he tried to refute it to no avail.

You mentioned that the current overseer of the HTC Bishop Belton Green needs to come clean about something he needs to repent from, are you a member of that organization?.........since you have made their issues public by creating this thread, can you tell us what Green needs to repent from?

Well if you want the answer to the question of what Bishop Belton Green needs to be repented for ask the huge migration of saints that moved to Columbia SC....The Lennons would be a good start. I understand this is an open forum so there will be no direct slander/accusations. Just start asking around. There is a church in Arkansas that is overseen by a Lennon....They are very aware of the incident that occured. Bishop Green has never repented in openly and everyone knows it and as a result the church is imploding. It is time someone start talking because so many people have spent their lives in the HTC and it's just time that all these people knew a lot more than what they know now. If you want the information you seek...just start prodding folks like the....Spence family.... Another thing is has anyone asked questions about why Bishop Goodwin was the Elder out of 30+ Elders under Bishop Johnson that had the "only true church". Before Bishop Johnson passed he shut down the majority of his elders churches and had them play his recorded tapes in service because he disaproved the way they were preaching, because it wasn't what he had set forth......Bishop Goodwin who had a church in NJ I believe at the time... was one that was not approved...So since he passed Bishop Goodwin changed Bishop Johnson's entire doctrine and very few saints exist that were under Bishop Johnson and few know all the changes that were made. The changes were not minor but huge, especially for women. You don't have to take my word for it. Look up old photos of SC Johnson on Bainbridge street in PA. He had stripes and multi colored ties!!!!!! So did his reader. Listen to his sermons....Will you hear him say a woman has to have her head covered in public? No. What about only the colors Bishop Goodwin allowed....No. There are lots of "modest" ways of dressing that would not mean blue, black, brown, white, grey and green.....Bishop Johnson wore tie clips.....If you wear one in the HTC now its a heaven and hell issue. Look at the attire of the males vs the females....men don't see a fraction of the humiliation that women do. Long sleeves and covered skin...ok should be the same for both sexes. But what purpose does a hat on your head at work, or at the mall or at school mean? You are not in worship or in prayer...so how is that also now a heaven and hell issue. The medical concern is also very real. So many people have died in the HTC for no reason at all. This day and age young people don't usually die from an abdominal tumor!!! So why did she have to die... The reason given was it was just her time........No way. God intended for us to use our heads to take care of ourselves. Using medical assistance for frivalous things should be avoided and natural remedies should be used instead. This is not talking about someone who needs a Bronchial Dialator because they have asthma and are dying because they can't breath!!!!! I used the poisenous snake bite example because it's an example of not using common sense and someone's child, husband, wife etc. dying as a result.
Yes I am still a member but along with so many others it needs to be rectified. Its not just some weird accusation. It's a standing realistic horrific event that has caused him to loose his relevance as a overseer of the HTC. Please to your research. To many people lives are in shambles now. Lifelong members that now know they were not given what they thought they were getting.

Has anyone ever asked the question about the prophecies that never materialized? Like Sarah/Ocie Lewis having a child from back in the 80's? They are what, maybe 70 yrs old now? How about children born in the 80s that were not going to get grown because the Lord was coming back before then. Maybe I heard it wrong, but I don't believe I did.

To SereneScene:

Praise The Lord. I have to respond to your rather long post in this fashion as to not to go over topix 4000 character limit here, there's a lot to respond to in your post, dealing first with your Bishop's issue of repentence, I can understand that you do not want to go too deeply into what is pretty much a highly sensitive church issue over an internet discussion forum, I once visit the HTC on north main street here in Columbia with another brother when I was in another Apostolic faith church before I was drawn into The Church In, it was in 1987 in the smaller sized building that is right beside the current one, Bishop Goodwin and a lot of the saints were there from New York and presumably other area's for the temple's dedication services there, I didn't know anyone there personally as the brother I went there with did and to my knowledge I don't know anyone there today, so I don't have access to ask around about whatever it was that Bishop Green did that he need to repent from, so I guess that I'll never really know.

I have the understanding ( and please feel free to correct me if I am wrong ) that in HTC the brothers were required to wear black suits and/or dark colors only, in The Church IN there are no such stanch restrictions on the male or female dress code, sisters are required for modest apparel covering all skin and stockings can be of any material as they should be covered by the long skits anyway, men are not relegated to black suits only, we do not believe in bright loud colors such as red bright yellows green and so forth, anything that will draw undue attention to a saint in and outside of the church, the head covering issue that you conveyed in one of your post is slightly debatable somewhat. I do feel that a sister should have her head covered at all times, if she is involved in an accident that knocks her hat off and has to call on the Lord Jesus for immediate protection without having time to out her covering back on..........then I agree that God will understand that situation and may not hold it against her, in the time it takes her to grab her hat and put it on her head could be the seconds that determine life and death or serious injury.

As for Bishop's S.C. Johnson and Goodwin.......I'll a little surprised to hear you say that Goodwin changed a lot of the Doctring that Johnson preached as I've heard it said that Goodwin always tried to pattern himself after Bishop Johnson and to be like him, you don't seem to have a high regard for either Bishop Goodwin or Green so you may not mind me saying that many felt that Goodwin was no Bishop S.C. Johnson, I can tell what Bishop Hunter thought of him ( Goodwin ) but I won't as you may already know. As for the healthcare issue, I think that it is condusive among the individuals faith level for God to heal them and should be left up to that saint rather or not they want medical attention for a serious enough illness or injury and it definitely should not be dinied them if thjey decided that they needed it.

Thank you and many Blessings to you.

Praise the Lord Saints of God. Very interesting discussion and conversation. I appeal to you to visit my blog which discusses God or Medicine as it relates to those of us who are in True Holiness who depend and rely upon God.

This is about Getting Back To God Before Its Too Late - because of the judgments, the atrocities and the state of events that's going on in the house of God, as it pertains to the so called church world.

This is rather unique. We have folks here where they are afraid to state their name. Obviously someone has a problem or hearsay in regards to Bishop Green. My question to you.......? Do we serve a God that will allow Bishop Green to serve as an Assistant Pastor of the Holy Temple Church for 25+ years to operate the organization? He is a good Pastor. Pray for him vice taking swipes at him. The hardest thing for a Pastor to do is follow after a Pastor who has served for 30+ years(Bishop Goodwin. Was Bishop Green prepared by Bishop Goodwin to take over the organization? No!!! He stepped into a dismal situation. He is doing the best he can. I knew Bishop Green as a child. He was and is a great servant. Feel free to contact me via email for questions in regards to him. I will be forthright with you. [email protected] y.mil I can show my name. Can you? Or will you continue to talk a lot of what you do not know? Peace be unto you all.

If the man has sinned he has no obligation to repent to anyone excep God..... Serene make sure your way is OK before God because he is coming soon as frowning Judge. HTC has problems like any other man made organisation and I think as individuals we need to focus on our souls and relationship with God . Those that are in error will need to fix their errors.
