I always heard he was a scandalous mofo. And a coke head. That's how his "performances" aka sermons were so colorful. He liked to molest girls and boys too.

Yea I heard all sorts of rumors about the boys etc, and I do believe them, but my experience was just cocaine. I used to dabble in it on occasions and I got mine through him. He had a source I couldn't touch. It was the best around. I would buy it off him and every now and then we'd do a line together.

He was one weird dude, but he knew his dope, Had all kinds of people fooled, sort of like that Flippo dude from Nitro.

It was all rumor for me, used to be involved in the powder myself and my sources were quite reliable. Never saw it, just heard about it. Quite scary that these types of people are running the churches as "men of God" lol

These churches are businesses. No more no less. Look at all the big churches on the corridor now. Why should anyone be surprised to hear of scandals involving them. I think they are even tax exempt?!?! It's crazy that so many drones just sign over money to them...to be a "member", lol what a joke.
yep

There's so much money to be made in the drug world and church world it boggles the mind. Those two go hand in hand sometimes.

I swear that I know drug dealers who have more scrupples and morals than preachers. it's utterly amazing how naieve some people are.

I actually picked up and gave a preacher a ride to church services one sundy about tghree years ago and we both got high on the way there.

He asked me to ome inside to hear him preach, but I went to shoneys instead and ate.

true story.

We still get high together and he rakes in almost 75,000 or more a year.

A lot of it is cash so who really knows

Anybody know who bought his house after he died? I heard it caught on fire not long afterwards and it was tied into Davey the (Snowman..Sniff! Sniff!) and somekind of shady goings on. Even after his death something went on and for the life of me I can't recall.

That was a while ago so my memoery is fuzzy.

I just googled him and came up with articles about his DUI arrest in 1986.

Can you imagine how many people got up, put on their sunday best, got the kids all cleaned up and looking sharp, then jumped in the Sedan to go listen to him preach a fire and brimstone service on the evils of drugs and premaritial sex. Then they reached deep into their wallets and handed him money so he could go buy some cocaine and other drugs?

Happened every sunday and wednesday. He and I split an eight ball once and he asked me to go ahead and give him the money for it and he would pay me back my part after the sunday service.

Yes he paid me back, but not until the till was full. Unbelievable, but true!

Sad part is this goes on still today, but so many people are blinded by their ego to realize it.

I look at the church members...how weak and pathetic they all must be to buy into this sham....every Sunday, the lots are full. I'm not saying they are all bad but money is definitely the root of it all. Go to a church a few weeks...then see if they don't start inquiring what you make each year and how much you could contribute...all in the name of "Gauddddd"...it's pathetic, the oldest profession...guilt people into writing checks!!

You poor pitiful souls. Making false accusations about the dead. Your trying to be cute, Vengeance is mine saith the Lord; Offend one my little ones it would be easier to tie a milestone around your neck and cast yourself in the depths of the sea. For the record, he will not be able to produce a link about Davy getting arrested for DUI, it didn't happen. After Davey's salvation experience, he got high, on the Holy Spirit. Something you need to experience. Where do you stand with God? Elaborate about your false claims of Lighthouse church please.
