Ummm, do you have anything else to do? Have YOU prayed? And while you're sweeping around Jackson's porch, you may be surprised to look back and see that you've accumulated a bit of a mess on your own. It's hard to tell whether you're a supporter or skeptic, christian or atheist, you're all over the place. I'll tell you this much though, I've decided to learn from this Jackson situation and re-examine my actions and how they appear to others. You can never please man and as long as you live and breathe, the best I can do is ask God to continue to grow me, change me, forgive me, mature me. We all should aspire to do the same. Since you seem to love typing on the internet, why not type a word that might uplift, save and heal others.

Peace and Blessings,

Why are there so many victims now? Is it because he wants nothing more to do with you all? Is it because the water has ran dry in your fountain? I am sure at one point, if true, that you all, the victims, where on cloud-nine, so why the change? What makes you a victim so many years later?
Just a little reply to what makes them a victim so many years later? Uh they where kids when it was suppose to have happen!!!!

When no evidense is presented and credibility is the issue, how can a man of God who ministers to the needs of people everyday be found guilty?
Especially a pastor with over 500 possible character witnesses,(the congregation)of whom he serves!
Character witnesses don't count! Did he get a fair trial is the standard in America. Popular or good looking, rich or poor, aren not issue. Was the trial fair?

It was interesting to read all of the things that have been said about Pastor Jackson. I attended the church for a long time and spiritually, I was very blessed with the overall ministry. For instance, there were times I would be struggling w/ something in my personal life- I would read my scripture & pray about it, and no lie, go to church that sunday, and that issue would be what Pastor preached about. I mean, the spiritual confirmation that I recieved on many life struggles came through the Word that I recieved "many-a-Sunday" at New G- that is something that I can never deny. For along time, I heard the "Whispers" and Gossip about his personal life, but I use to tune it out-Why? Because I ALWAYS considered myself, and the MIRACLE that God had worked in me. And I never felt like it was in my place to judge anyone- that was then. I continued on as a member, during the 1st incarceration. But it wasnt until an associate minister made some comments one sunday morning, that I decided I had had enough. In an attempt to explain why Pastor Jackson was in jail, she said,(and I qoute because I will never forget it) "That this was an Indictment on the church- that all of these things were being allowed to happen, NOT because of Pastor Jackson's actions, but because of our (Members) walk with Christ" I believe that was THE LAST SUNDAY I attended a service. Now, dont get me wrong, I know that "all fall short of the glory of God."... and I know all of the scriptures about judging one another, But I WILL NOT be told, FROM THE SACRED PLACE-THE PULPIT, that the reason my Pastor is in jail was because of something that I May ot May Not be doing in my walk with Christ. That was where I drew the line. Since then, there have been many Sundays where I got up, but I just couldnt go back. He has since been in jail a 2nd time for dirty urine and I understand that many members and Ministers have left. I am truly saddend but still hurt. I believe he should have humbled himself and stepped down along time ago, in the midst of everything instead of continually lying to the congregation. I dont know. I just wish him the best, but I can NEVER go back there.

"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye Shall know them by their fruits." (Not by how good they sing, not by how good they preach, not by how much they "keep it real")- The WORD OF GOD SAYS ..WE WILL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS- SO ASK YOURSELF, HOW FRUITFUL IS THE MINISTRY AT NEW GENERATION? WHERE IS THE INCREASE?WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE OF GOD'S BOUNTY? WHERE IS THE FRUIT FROM THE HARVEST THAT RESULTS FROM SOWING GOOD SEEDS?...."Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit." Matthew 7:15,17-18. LET US MEASURE OURSELVES AND OUR CHOICES AGAINST THE WORD OF GOD, NOT ON EMOTIONS.

Any explanation of the 1st Ladys cousin being the mother of one of his children? See, nobody wants to talk about that mess. That girl use to sing in the Praise Team, was sleeping with him when she was like 16, and has a daughter by him- and the DNA tests have proven it. But, like I said, nobody @ the church wanted to ever address that. People acted like "J" didnt even exist or her child. Now tell me, Is that the work of Satan too?

Sad situation, sad church, sad followers. Most of the members are corrupt, lack good judgement and mentally disturbed.Most of them have no lives are miserable and get htere only satisfaction by holding some type of office in this corrupt church. They think that going there, wearing mutliple faces and tithing is going to save them. Most of them don't have the mental capability to interpret or comprehend the bible let alone follow it. They go to church to fake and make it look good and because they have nothing else on Sunday to do!!!1 And you are absolutely correct. WHERE IS THE FRUIT!!!!!!!

Discover Orthodox Christianity! It`s time to know about the historical apostolic,ancient, Orhodox faith and church ( Math, 16:18 ).The stone is the Jesus Christ, not the Peter or other Apostole. One faith, one church,one body,one hope. That`s teaching the Holy Bible and the Holy Spirit ( John 16:13). God loves all the people of the world. God, Father and Son and the Holy Spirit,bless everyone in the forum to find the truth Church of God.

I do not know any of the people involved in this "issue". But I do know the Lord.I never turn my head when a child says that they were "touched". But I will say this. God works in such odd ways that we do not understand. Just because this Pastor is in jail does not make him guilty.Get out of the box we put the Lord in and think, maybe God has a plan here. And yes it may be to put the Pastor in jail for a period of time or let him go! It sounds like alot of people have him guilty. I will not judge this, as the Lord has instructed us all not to. But also remember this, do not put your faith in man, because man will let you down. NOT SAYING HES GUILTY. Just saying trust God, pray for the *victims* and the Pastor and God will do the rest.

God Bless all who are hurting.
