You're dead wrong about the Holiness movement. They took me in at my worst and never forced their beliefs on me. Every movement has its exceptions, but as a whole I have found no greater people in the world.
we're all sinners......right? even the pope, and billy graham, and Jolsteen.......they are put on too high of pedestals and that is our faults......of course those kinds of sins....should not be in the ministry........BUT again.........none of the clergy is without sin.......people keep forgetting that....thats why they need our prayers too

im still disgusgusted Dave of Phoenix......your portrayal of all of BHC based upon the actions of a man that I once loved and considered to be a man of God is shameless....those folks are loving and caring people and I know that for a not fooling myself...i know without a shadow of a doubt that the accusations against their/our pastor destroyed many a persons faith...but the church members are the most caring people Ive ever met

The bible tells you as a christian don't take the word of any man, take the word he sent you the bible. Man will deceive you, uses you, lie to you, cheat you and many other things but Gods word will never fail you. As for you so called christian, calling names, pointing fingers or what else you seem to enjoy, its a shame you call yourselfs christians. If you would spend as much time reading God word as you do griping, back biting, wagging your tongues with gossip then you know God hates pretend christians calls them hot house lillies. Jesus was not a bapistist, catholic, holiness or any other denomintion, man made up that title, God calls us his children and expects us to act like children of a living God not some title name congregation.

I also believe that Bro. Gary was set up...He had found out some things that were going on in the church and was going to bring it out...Therefore by discrediting him, they thought they could get by...But they will not get by in the end...
Really? Set up? You've been watching too much television. He's been doing the same stuff where he's been hiding. Check Tulsa police records for March 2015.

Tom Newberry has been sexually abusing young boys for decades. He is also being defended and protected by the church. I know. I was a victim for 10 years.

I personally know someone who was approached by Mr. Edenfield many years ago in a sexual way. Fortunately he was able to get away. When he threatened to expose him, Edenfield turned the tables and made it out that the other person was the one with the problem. Since Edenfield at the time was a well known preacher, and the person I know was just starting out, the church community of course believed Edenfield. This caused many problems for the other person, but he has prevailed and his ministry is thriving despite the false accusations. It is my understanding that Edenfield's molestation issues have been going on for many many years, and there are some out there who either knew, or suspected, but either wouldn't say anything, or in some cases, were threatened if they were to speak out. What bothers me as well is that our churches either have no discernment, or choose to look the other way. The Apostle Paul said "follow me as I follow Christ" --- Edenfield apparently was / is not following Christ. We don't need to kick someone when they are down, but also don't need to defend them. The justice system needs to do its due diligence and take this man not only out of the pulpit, but off the streets.

I am a little late to this I know, however I googled Gary's name and it brought me here. I have known Gary since I was a child. My parents are his age. I grew up in the Ohio tristate area. He was a young man at a church there in Dayton, he was a young person there around the same time my parents were. It was speculated back when he was just a young man how he was. He was always around other questionable young men in that church at that time. People have known this for years!! In my generation growing up ( I am in my 20s now) all of the youth questioned him! Most of us as teenagers at youth camps, camp meetings, and revivals made jokes, and straight out fun of the adults playing stupid to him. As long as I can remember he's had a problem. A problem with perversion, boys, other men, etc... If anyone doubts he has a problem I know plenty that will say he does. Asking young boys out, getting them alone in the trailer , or bathrooms, clinging to them, kissing them goodnight, straight out touching them, getting in their ears at the alter, and acting demon possesed when having them alone is not OK. Showing young people porn is not OK! I have heard the argument " he needs prayer don't hate" until I could scream! He may need prayer, he definitely needs to be saved, however those he hurt are the victims, his family I agree are victims as well, but you cannot hold back truth to save face for him. He has a bad problem!

It is sad he was one of my favorite preachers before I found out. So I KNOW ..I'm not trying to judge him. I just don't understand sympathy towards hypocrisy. It's one thing to commit a regretful sin once or twice but for 10 yrs..and sodomy? I think my "confused" went out the door. However, I do wish I could ask him one question...where did he develop the problem..and why didnt he just ask for help. Also, you have to wonder where all the discernment went....all the churches ..noone knew?
Just months before he (the sodomite) got caught he was worshipping on the PFYC stage, I
Ask the question again, where is the discernment? Did he not try to ruin another young preacher by lying on him? The judgement day will tell.)

It's been eight years. Get over it. I guarantee he's not the first "Sodomite" who's been up on that stage, nor will he be the last.

I believe Bro. Gary was set up by someone in the church to get rid of him. I have heard a statement made before that "the tongue can hang a man or set him free." The person/persons that started this awful life-long torment for Bro. Gary will have to face an Almighty God in judgement. I would hate to know that I put a stumbling block before someone to make them fall. No matter what; God still loves Bro. Gary.
You sir, are a complete moron. If he raped and violated you're children im sure you would feel different.

I do not understand what has gone on! I am very upset to hear this news! I used to go to BHC with a lovely family that I am trying to get in touch with (which is why I looked up BHC) As a kid I used to love BHC and bro edenfields preaching was captivating! I hope that he hasn't done what he was accused of, and I will keep him and his wife and daughters in my prayers. It is up to GOD to judge, not any of us
And of course the judge that is presiding over his case and going through all of the evidence.
