Yes, some anger and lies on facebook play into this.
Forgiven is forgiven. Living a right life and being authentic even though we mess up, fine. We all ought to be there.
But Manipulative and Angry at the world, wishing ill on others, HELLO??? Wake up, MFC.
If my opinion is wrong, so be it. Rotten fruit is all I've seen in this case though. Maybe I'm totally off base. I HOPE SO.
The do-gooders who see nothing but the "good" in others ought to pray for some discernment however...and have some guts when needed.

As far as broken promises, I go to a church with no debt now. Lines right up with my philosophies so I'm more comfortable. However, the church carrying debt isn't my problem, but when a congregation is promised no new debt until the old one is paid off, then a BIG new loan is taken out and the old loan refinanced into it, for a GYM, then I have a problem. Ugh!!
If I am wrong on this, someone tell me. But that's what I understood to be happening. Never mind the various ministries that help people and were promised space in the Family Life Center just gotten rid of, for convenience' sake. Really?? Or because it looks bad. But dont tell everyone that people weren't helped just to further YOUR agenda,(insert name here). I never will understand why that building couldn't be used for more than just a playground for who "matters".

And I'm not Louda, btw. Was someone getting us mixed up?
I asked some honest questions about finance and such. I'm a former choir member and served in other ministries there, gave mfc thousands in tithes, so I'm not an outsider making up stuff. Just letting some people who've been asking questions why someone like me left...

Careful asking questions. They don't like that. It's apparently a sin to them.

I'm not an "insider" and I use the life center whenever I want. I don't see what the problem is.... Louda, you are trash! I in know way reflect maranatha as I am only there occasionally and not a "member" but I've read your posts and you are straight trash and a troublemaker... You are an Internet troll that talks big and bad online behind false names where no one can see you...

Devious eh? Did your mother name you or your father? LOL pot, meet kettle. That's what I've been saying all along. It seems that a requirement of being a supporter of that church is that you are self-righteous and a hypocrite. I know that it can't be true for everyone who goes there, but I haven't seen any on here that follow the example of Jesus. In our Bible, it says that God doesn't rank sin, but you people continue to judge me while condemning me for having a negative opinion on your church. It's people like you, Devious, that give all churches a bad name.

P.S. I haven't acted "big and bad" one time. That's what you people have done.

Work out your own salvation. I'm questioning the church leadership, not individual members of the congregation.

Thank you, devious. You verify my points with every new comment. Also, Jesus loves people with learning disabilities, but it seems like you have a problem with them. I'm glad I am different from the Christians you've met, because the ones you seem to keep company with really don't seem like a group that I would like to worship and fellowship with anyway. What kind of Christian attacks people by calling them names like "retard"?

Louda, get a life! It's not your place to question or judge anyone no matter who it is. Sounds like you need to find something better to do with your time. Your a drama queen!

I need to find something better to do, but here you are doing the same thing LOL. I haven't judged anyone as you would know if you had read ANY of my posts. Nice try.

When will you people STOP and grow up! What done is done and if there are LIES and hidden agendas out there, they will be exposed. Let it go and Let GOD take care of it! We are NOT the ones to point out sin, look at yourselves! If you say you are without sin, then take another look. We ALL sin everyday! STOP with TOPIX and get in your Bible! GIVE IT TO GOD!

First, asking questions isn't judging. Go get in your book. Second, I've heard rumors and haven't addressed them on here. I only addressed facts that I knew and saw with my own eyes. It's "believe." Maybe you should get into your school books too. Third, this Website is set up for people to post statements. If you don't like people making statements that don't agree with your views, get over it or leave. I have just as much right to be here as anyone. Last, what have you been doing on here for the last two days. It seems like all I've been doing is defending YOUR attacks. Instead of telling someone to get a life for defending themselves, maybe you should just stop trying to silence them and let them have their opinions. It's just a suggestion.

There wouldn't be any churches at all, let alone good churches, if good people didn't stand up to corruption. There's a time and place for everything. Here and now seems to be the time and place for people to give their opinions on Maranatha. You may not like it or agree, but you can't deny that there are a great number of people who feel that things ARE going wrong at MFC. If people want to comment on a public thread about it, they have the right.

I agree with Louda. We all do have the right. I also see where he or she gets their opinions of Maranatha supporters. Name calling, telling people to shut up, spewing forth all sorts of venom. brilliant, devious, and some others. That sounds like the same person and one that does not accurately reflect the nature of people at Maranatha, Louda. I know you are upset with the way some things have been handled, but I assure you there are many kind-hearted, loving, wonderful people there. Most of them, I assure you, have probably never heard of this website.
Just wanted to share that.
