"Grace Church" New Canaan

Is this a cult or just a trendy operation with questionable financial oversight like much in New Canaan, land of hedge funds, McMansions, naked greed in all of its forms looking for justification and merit in spite of a lack of real merit?
"Grace Church" has bought "Windsome Farms" the large, extravagant property on the north end of town off rt. 123. http://www.newcanaannewsonline.com/news/artic...
How is it that the media blackout continues on questions regarding how "Grace Church" continues to whitewash their operations in a full and healthy responsibility to their members and to the New Canaan community? Don't expect "New Canaan Advertiser" to cover the issue!! Hersam is a died in the wool Roman Catholic. Knechtle, who runs "Grace Chuch" is the son of a Seventh Day Adventist. He made his fame going to campuses giving lame arguments to students to supposedly counter their atheist argument while he presented himself as the good, pious, family man Christian. In actuality he is a fake, phoney, two-bit fraud! His family got their money from his mom, a corporate heiress!

People are all for grace and mercy when there has been full accountability. Rumor was that Knechtle was banging the wife of one of the members, they covered up the adultery and ousted him. So he started this new church without a home, now there is tons of money backing it as a result of "grace". There is way too much "positive" easy believism these days with the likes of Osteen and the prosperity preachers. This is just a local example of it.

That was "Hope" church in Wilton where Knechtle got in trouble--it was completely hushed up, typical for the area. It's strange for someone who gets promoted as a good family man and he preaches against promiscuity, "perverts" and fooling around. You've got to wonder with all the travelling "Cliffe" did how many other cases there have been? With the amount of money backing the guy good luck holding him to accountability. There are double standards all over the place in an area with so many phonies.
