Towering Oaks and First Baptist are constantly exchanging members. Sad but true. How sad that someone who has left the church would stoop this low. God will hold you accountable.

Hey, you got the wrong church. But if Towering Oaks doesn't get with this acceptance of gay marriage, they will lose even more folks. That's why we decided not to join, they are way too old fashion. They need to get with the times.

You are a liar. Yes, a liar. As a christian I can say this because it is true. You are lying about a church I have attended all my life. Brother Tommy is a very old fashion minister. He still preaches about the blood of Christ and I thank God for that. Whether I have a few years left on this earth or should Jesus return this day, this minute, I have heard the gospel, the true gospel. If you desire the truth Towering Oaks is where you will feel at home. Brother Tommy does not sugar coat or water down the truth. I know that is getting to be unacceptable to some, but glory be to God we hear the truth and that makes a lot of folks uncomfortable. God loves us and His Word is true. Thank you Lord Jesus for Brother Tommy and may you protect Him from these attacks.

I am not, nor have I ever been a part of this church.

I do however, know that a lot of long-time members have left recently.

I honestly wanted to know what is going on.

It must be something bad with how everyone is jumping in here thinking I'm one of the people who left!

You are right brother. How sad that most times those who cause the drama and upset the brethen move on to another church and eventually will find something wrong there too. Church is not perfect, it's full of people. Brother Tommy steps on my toes many times, even at my age, he even opening admits to the fact that he himself is imperfect. Like he preaches, it's all about the blood, it's all about the blood. Amen!

If you were not taught against gossip, Towering Oaks also teaches the truth about this subject. It's hard to fool and old fool, your purpose is clear. I just thank God I was on here checkiing the news. My being here at this moment is no accident, God is awesome.

All i can say is when Brother Tommy came out of the closet in favor, I had enough. That is the reason I left. I don't know about anyone else. It is not very Christian-like to call someone a liar.

Yeah , I thought the 'assumption' or 'accusation' that you were a disgruntled former attendee was interesting.

It would appear that you forgot to change your location back this time? Yes, Christians are allowed to tell the truth and you are lying about that church. Towering Oaks still believes in black and white. We steer clear of the grey areas that so many churches have adopted. Why are you lying about our church and our pastor?

Not sure how you mistook "Lower Oaks Baptist" in Knoxville for Towering Oaks Baptist in Greeneville. I use to live in Knoxville. Where is Lower Oaks Baptist located?

I am not a christian,nor do I attend church.Foremost because my job will not allow it.If folks are leaving because of gay acceptance....well I cant really blame them.It sickens me to the core,as I cant see the want or need to engage in their practice,the human body is designed for it's NORMAL functions,reproduceing from the front,and produceing waste from the rear,we are supreme beings,and to stoop to this level.....well it would seem easier just to go jump in a sewage treatment plant,tons of hate and ridicule you would be spared,and you would be totally engrossed in the filth you SO desire.I believe with every fiber of my being that AIDS is the direct result and punishment for this so called lifestyle.....and the blood of the innocent children and adults that you have infected with your filth is on YOUR HANDS GAYS!

If you are a Christian, then you must know what a sin it is to spread gossip in this fashion. If you are not a Christian and need a church family, Towering Oaks is a true Bible teaching church. Perfect we are not and that is why we feel comfortable there. Only Jesus was perfect and without sin.

So what's going on? I want to know the good and the bad about a church before I get involved in it.
