Boy, I hope ya'll have your facts straight on this one, this could be one of those threads that might send your behind to hell.
I know alot of people that go there and have been invited, and this thread will not make my mind up for me, but I may have to go just to check this out. If I'm not back by summer, send help.

Not only that but they are building an atom bomb in the secret basement and they plan to attack the Capitol. They also have a torture dungeon where they feed babies to rabid giraffes! I know it is true because a friend of an acquaintance read it on the interweb.

Blue Mann we will send in the troops if you aren't back by June. LOL

The drug accusations could land someone in hot water if they aren't careful. The individuals being accused could sue you for slander so you should think twice about posting something like that unless you have some concrete evidence.

Just because you post anonymously you are not anonymous. They can track your IP.

I have family that goes there, I have visited there, and I have been around Rip on other occasions. It is a wonderful church. My family members are doing better and living a closer walk with God than they ever have before. I would reccomend it to anyone who is looking for a good church. I thought Blue Mann's comment was hilarious. The truth of the matter is, regardless of what the person who started this threads intentions of harm were, Rip would reach out to that person with compassion just like Jesus would and Rip would pray for that person to be delivered from hell regardless of what they may think of him and his wife. That is just the kind of man he is and the heart God placed in him.

I'm not a big fan of having two different types of services. They advertise both a "traditional" service and a regular service. I mean, does the same preacher preach both services? Or is the traditional service for those who actually believe in God and the regular for people who just want to socialize? I'm confused.

I saw it. It's not quite as bad as the indoctrination into secular humanism, atheism and homosexuality that goes on at Cherokee or other high schools.

they are probably just like any church...a cult. people have to go so a man can stand up and tell them what the bible says.i don't reckon anyone can read the bible as well as the preacher.the congration will adore you,unless you have a different opinion than they do.just have a good time, then when someone gets mad at you,you can go out and start your own church.make sure you beg people to come to your church by telling them what sinners every other church has. most important, try to get some members with money(you might have to lure them away from another church,which is ok,then you can preach about how much god loves your members more than any other group)try to get some good-looking people,you have a good excuse for all that hugging.try not to let anyone have an excuse for not going to church. please get all the money you can for god. do you send it up in a rocket. by now god must have a lot of money from all these preachers,especially the ones on tv.
