No Excuse! Can't believe he stood there playing the victim and took the money if he did in fact have severance pay and 3 months of living expenses! One of those 2 obviously has a serious issue(s).

Tennessee is an "at will" state. Welcome to our world.... People lose their jobs everyday. And people, don't believe that Persia just kicked him out for no reason!! They had a reason... just being a better person by not telling the world on Topix like the preacher from Higher Ground.

I am posting this, hoping that maybe the pastor will be curious and check out this post. I want to tell him that he has hurt people, so many people, more than he will ever know. You'd think a man of God would not act this way, even though we all are sinners and we all screw up sometimes, you'd think a pastor would at least have a conscience. And to his wife, so many people respected her, loved her, cared for her, and to see her standing there accepting that gift and not saying a word as to the truth, nauseated and stabbed me straight in the heart. Shame on you two, shame on you for leading unsaved Christians to Christ, and then showing them that this is how Christians should act. I pray that both of these people will fess up and tell the truth, return that money, and apologize to all the people they have hurt in this church and this town, (not to mention the people at Higher Ground, who dug into their pocketbooks to help someone, only to be scammed)

Can someone tell me exactly what is going on? Is there a video or something that shows them accepting money from Higher Ground? What role does Higher Ground play in this situation?

I think that if all these things are true there should be a meeting on this matter with the right people from Persia & Higher Ground talk this matter over resolve this move on don't keep drag it on move past it and look forward to the future and don't look back leave it in the past.
