A wonderful lady, Elizabeth Mason, was laid to rest today. Her funeral was at Wyatt Baptist Church with the church's preacher, Scott Atteberry, officiating. Of all the people in the world, preachers should know best of all to turn their cell phones OFF during service!!! I am so upset that this man not only didn't turn it off but got up and walked out of the service to take the call! WHAT?? Yes, you heard correctly. While someone else was speaking, he got a call and got up and walked out. This lovely lady was a member of his own congregation and he couldn't even show her respect in her death! What a disgrace to Wyatt Baptist Church. Sadly, Mr. Atteberry often sends and receives text messages during regular services when he isn't "performing". I use this word because he doesn't even write his own sermons. Another member of the church writes ALL of his sermons..he merely performs. What ever happened to REAL preacher's? What a sad world this is coming to. RIP Elizabeth...so sorry for the disrespect that was given to you today by your own preacher.

I think everyone at my funeral should be on their cell phones... It would be an exact reflection of what things were like when I was alive.

Bro. Scott is a wonderful man, and leads our church biblically.

If he offended anyone, he is man enough to face them...go speak to him in person. A coward slanders people without revealing themselves.

Church service start a 10:00am, you are always welcome.

This is anything but slander, just a recognition of the general offense all should feel given the actions by anyone who would leave their cell on during any church service, and even so much more so a funeral service.

Those actions as so very unsympathetic and unfeeling and so disrespectful.

No need for someone to approach him personally as there was no need for personal offense rather his actions certainly would have been offensive to all in attendence.

I would hope he would feel enough remorse to change his behavior. For his flock to overlook this shortcoming does not do him any favors, as he needs to understand the impact of these actions and not be protected in a cocoon and never learn better.

He offended Mrs Mason. Sorry she can't speak to brother Sam at the moment, maybe at a later date.

He went to the sound booth to tell the sound guys to turn up the mics so everyone could hear. You have this dead wrong.

I wanted to make sure I had confirmation of what really happened. I contacted the sound guy for the funeral and Bro. Scott did indeed come to the booth to tell them to turn the volume up because it was difficult to hear. Bro. Scott's true desire was that the very large crowd be able to hear the wonderful things being said about this great lady. A phone did ring around the time that he got up however the phone was in our section and he was in another. I can see how there might have been some confusion but It is very important to understand the facts before you level a charge at a man of God. As far as the claims of sermon authorship, I can tell you without a doubt that this man works hard preparing each and every sermon he preaches and my family gets to reap the benefits of those sermons.

No staff have resigned at Wyatt in the last 5 or 6 years. You must be confusing Wyatt with another church.

I think there are better things to post about. Bro Scott is a great person! Let's not be ugly! He wouldn't have left and taken a phone call unless it was necessary! I know him well enough to say that!

Only change I would recommend:
"I can see how there might have been some confusion but It is very important to understand the facts before you level a charge at ANYONE."

I personally don't care for brother Scott or the changes he's made to what used to be a wonderful church. This man came in and made upteen gillion changes without ANY voting! No one has a say in our church anymore unless your one of his "puppets". Wyatt has always voted on EVERYTHING! But not anymore. This man is so money hungry it's just plain pathetic. All he wants is money, fame, headlines ect. Our church now looks like one of those "healing evangalist" shows on TV! He needs to get a grip and really find the Lord! God is not in money or one of Scott's little movie making adventures! Plus he is SO RUDE to our elderly members! He just needs to go back to wherever he came from! Please don't tell me to change churches. I grew up at Wyatt and it is more MY church than it will ever be his. I will be there long after he has moved on to "bigger" things. BRING BACK BROTHER VERNON LEE!!! NOW THAT IS A REAL PREACHER! BTW...Scott DOES NOT write his own sermons...that fact has even been said by Scott himself in service!! Maybe you shouldn't let him pull the wool over your eyes with all his fancy smancy mess! And, the ringing cell phone WAS Scott's. I was only a few rows away from him and had perfect view. He DID take a call and I too was deeply offended.
