I refuse to except your premise. The concept of faith is something you obviously don't embrace. That is okay, but your unwillingness to believe in a concept beyond your meager level of comprehension does not invalidate the it, or everyone who believes experience. I would rather submit that your inability to explain in finite human terms, the idea of God, requires just as much faith. I have seen things that cannot be explained... not weird or speculative.
Most people say "show me and I will believe." Jesus say "Believe and I will show you."
I might add that the concept of faith is something you only embrace because it is the only way to justify your belief in the truly unknown. If there was evidence of God's existence then you wouldn't need faith, your basing your belief off of a secondary principal

I don't believe these lies that has caused us to be without a leader...As a church and a member we are standing behind and beside him 100%...How can anyone be convicted of this crime when they had no evidence and they went on the credibility of the accusers...I await the day when I see my pastor walked into New Generation again and mount the pulpit...I miss and love you pastor...
It's great you believe in the whole "Holier than Thouness". But don't act like it's neevr happened before with pastors. They use God to do things God does NOT approve of and if he's proven guilty, then what? If he confesses? Will he still be your knight in shining armor? Or your loser in crumpled tinfoil?

I believe everyone is guilty until proven innocent. I don't believe these children would make something horrible up. Children are scared and do not know what happens at the time. Not until they find out years later that what was done to them, was very wrong. That is when they usually come forward. Just because this man is a reverend does not make him innocent. It would be the perfect crime. To ''claim'' to serve the Lord, have all of you followers believe he would never do this, and to hurt these children tremendously. Molesting children is the most disturbed crime in my opinion. Pedophiles, Rapists, and Molestors need to be put to death. When you take the innocence away from children. What else do they have left? I will never support anyone who does something of this nature to children. He can BURN IN HELL.

Sorry to say I know this man (personally) and when he is out of town he is far from a preacher. He is a fake. It is a shame a child could be molested and a church still allows him to preach over them. This is a sad situation.

I have no reason to lie I know this man and he is a phoney!

Are any of you that support this pastor the same ones who will condemn and scream at the Catholic Church for its priest sex scandals? I find it very funny too that 9 years have gone by before this came out. Sheltering someone with sexual abuse problems? This man has what sounds like a sexual addiction problem and has no business pastoring or counseling anyone.

Especially a pastor with over 500 possible character witnesses,(the congregation)of whom he serves!
Evidence vs Credibility... um, what's the TRUTH?
In these days and times, when a mother is left to fend for her children and the father walks away b/c he gets tired of being a father.

When many celabs today have come forward to state their personal experiences w/ unwanted touching when they where children.

When we as a nation is more concern about what isn't important versus what is required to be good individuals to one another.

The evidence is clear... the credibility of any one individual should reflect the one who may be w/o credibility versus the masses... especially the 500 or so, who has not met with that individual who may have performed an injustice to another

Maybe Jesus forgives pervert child molesters but I don't. This jackass preacher has redefined the faith healer term "laying on of hands".

There is no measure of sin. Sin is sin. What is yours?
If he molested children,he needs to be in prison!This is not about casting stones.If it was proven that he did it-he is where he needs to be.
