This is in response to "Doubtful in Gainsville" and all others who dislike my posts. Read my blog again, read it and see that I never said that I condone living off of stolen money. I don't believe in stealing!
I have attacked no one for being a victim, but have criticized for their continued bashing of Wendell Spell and his family.
Never have I said that I was better than anyone. I believe that people are all created equal and it is their choices that make one better if that is the term you choose to use, or worse that the other. But that is not my call to make.
I am not trying to fool anyone. I am not a con artist, how can anyone even come to that conclusion by my blog? I stated that he admitted guilt, and needs to pay for it. But those professing Christianity need to try to forgive.
I will NOT tolerate being called someone "posing" as a Christian. Isn't it the Christian who tries to make peace, show forgiveness,and help others to do the same. Forgiveness does not excuse the the crime. The ability to forgive is a gift from God. And believe me I have prayed for that ability.
As far as I know the money has not been recovered, and I don't know that it ever will. For all who lost money, I hope it will be found, but if not those victims must continue to live their lives. I believe things happen to us for a reason and use this awful crime to look at your life differently.
I have never lied on this blog site, and am a real Christian. How can one come to that conclusion just because I have a different opinion and perspective. Maybe you need to review your life and your words. They are hurtful. Did Jesus do that. I am not talking about Wendell Spell's crime, I am talking about those of you talking so meanly on this site.
I believe in our justice system. I believe in punishment and restitution. But the words I read are hateful. Can you honestly say that you do not see and hear the hate in these blogs.
Wendell spell will face the consequences of both God and man, I agree, but what I have been trying to say is that we are not to judge who is or isn't a Christian. Who will go to hell, who has asked for repentance, and who can take this awful, awful situation and turn it around and find something good in it. Live more simply, spend more time with your children. Counsel others about investing money, without bashing , that just has to stop.
If you can't see this, you need to seriously pray for peace in your life, and for the others you know who were wronged. If not you will be miserable. I have experienced this first hand (which is more than you need to know) and I am a better person, myself, for learning forgiveness and having peace, and moving forward.

Justice may not be kind for the criminals!!!!! And it shouldn't be! Wendell Spell is a professional con artist & thief who hid behind the Bible and used it as a tool in his scheme to steal money from people. The judge sentenced him to 12 years and he will serve time with other hardened criminals like himself so "really people" and "na-na-boo-boo" can take your meaningless empty posts in defense of Wendell Spell and insert them where the sun does not shine!

Wendell Spell can use his time in prison to get right with God and maybe even accept Jesus as his saviour. Hope he does! But he still has to accept his punishment. He is, by the way, a repeat offender of this Ponzi Scheme crime! He knew what he was doing!

You know it was stated in court yesterday that Wendell even made promises on his little grandchild that had passed away. What a sick individual that he wanted so bad for people to believe what he said that he had to use the death of this innocent little girl. If he doesn't truly get right with God, I believe there is a special place in Hell for Wendell Spell.

As I sit here and read so many of the recent posts, I am struck by how much anger resonates from each post. Anger that is not always directed at the appropriate recipient. Many of you have turned on each other, I suppose in an effort to get rid of some of the toxicity that has taken up residence in your hearts. I am not going to pass judgment, claim myself to be a "devout Christian", or condescend to anyone. I am just as human as the next and work every day trying to decipher God's word and be the best person and mom I can be. Sometimes, I get it right, sometimes I don't. But I have learned one thing: anger kills. It is a toxic emotion that if not dealt with, it destroys relationships, marriages, friendships, and our connections with God. I am sorry for all the hurt and pain and loss experienced by many of you. It is time to get on with your lives and strive to make lemonade from lemons, however dismal or difficult it may seem. Trust that God will have the final hand in making an unjust situation just. Maybe you can take what you have learned from your experiences and help others along their paths: be careful in your endeavors, investigate thoroughly a person or company before parting with your money (criminal records are part of public record; the best indicator of future behavior is past and present behavior), and do not be quick to judge without knowing all the facts. And last but not least, if it seems to good to be true, it probably isn't. If I were a victim in this situation, I would be rightfully angry, too. But I value my heart and life too much to let that anger destroy me. Your anger and resentment will not bring back your money, and the guilty parties are not hurt or even affected by your feelings. Don't continue to hurt yourselves, each other, and the people who love and worry about you. A lot of good lessons are to be learned here; a lot of character can be built as a result of this; and we can all be strengthened as God's children by putting faith in Him and dealing with adversity, disappointment, and the effects of someone else's bad judgment. We are all responsible in the end for our characters and our lives. I wish you all the best in making the rest of yours as positive and rewarding as possible. God bless all of you.

Buford, you want us to put faith in God. I'm not sure why. If God is loving and omniscient, God knew what Wendell was doing. Why wouldn't a loving God have stopped it? There is no worthwhile lesson to be learned by having one's retirement shattered. Given God's unlimited powers, I'd appreciate the $514,000 that Wendell stole put back into my bank account. Same goes for my friends as well.

Sometimes God allows things in our life to get our attention or someone else's. Read about Job, he lost everything he had and still did not curse God. Satan asked God for permission to test Job. He didn't just lose money and his possessions, and he had many. He lost his entire family. Try to heal and get on with your lives. Don't let what 1 man did eat away at your life.

na-na-boo-boo that's pretty lame. You don't really believe the myth that Jonah lived in the belly of a big fish, or that Satan actually exists, do you? This whole thing about "God working in mysterious ways, his wonders to behold" is discussed in a very revealing book entitled, "The Hanging Death of Jesus Christ." You do know that the New Testament has accounts and references to Jesus being hanged by the Jewish religious authorities AFTER he had been crucified? You can get it from any major bookstore online.
The closest that Wendell will come to hell are his years in prison. The notion that God is so mean, evil and cruel that he will punish some people for eternity in hell is very far fetched.

I heard a rumor to the effect that Wendell the Swindler had requested the Florida panhandle. How appropriate, just the right spot for a mega panhandler.

Not sure but do know that the oldest daughters husbands last name is Raffray. I'm guessing it's someone who is related to Pam's son in law married to the daughter. Probably very unhappy her relative was caught up in this, lost his job, and feels bad he is forever associated with the family since he's married to Wendell's daughter. The son in law worked for Wendell at North Georgia Equipment.

If the prison officials have any sense of decency at all, they'll put Wendell in with the Muslim Brotherhood so that Wendell can take his Bible and convert them all. I'm wondering, do Muslims swindle in the same manner as Christians (Spell) and Jews (Madoff)? Does anyone know of any instance in this country where that has happened?

Has anyone looking into those people who were involved bringing them into Wendells investment? Tom Francis was involved in a company along with Richard Sutherland that took money and invested in North Georgia Equipment sales. Was anyone else brought in by these people?
