I know this man, and I know the victims. This man is very much guilty. I find it difficult to understand how church member congregate around this individual whom has been found guilty of child abuse. That is almost as much of a sin as the act its self. People have to come together for the children and help them return to the lord and help overcome this horrific act. I know several women who have made clams that he has abused them and they claim to know of several other girls this has happen to, and chose not to come forward. We can not pass judgment on anyone including those who this happen to as well as Jackson, however we can hold people accountable for their actions. He is a sick man and needs help with his issues not passiveness from outsiders(those not involved in the case) concerning his child molestation. He has children, we need to pray for his very young children and his wife and hope they can overcome the deeds of the Jackson. People need to stop acting like it did not happen that has gone on long enough.
What are you guilty of? Judge no lest ye be judged.

Peace be unto the Jackson and New Generation family!
I dont understand some of you so called body of Christ baptized believers.Do you really know the bible? When your brother is overtaken in a fault ye that are spiritual restore him in the spirit of meekness,considering thyself,lest thou also be tempted.(Galations6:1) I am fully convinced that many of you just are'nt spiritual you go to church but have no subsatnce,you have a form of godliness but deny the power therein.The bible tells us,touch not my anointed and do my Prophet's no harm.Take your mouth and corrupt spirits off of God's anointed.We that are strong should bear the infirmities of the weak.I'm convinced that some of you are just as weak as worms.I DO NOT condone nor uplift sin,but if God can forgive who are we not too also.The bible says,If we forgive men of their trepasses our heavenly Father will forgive us of our trepasses but if we forgive not men of their trepasses neither will God forgive us of our trepasses.Lady Jackson & family,we speak peace to you and Pastor Jackson and we know that God is our righteous judge and He will avenge our adversary speedily.To build your faith read:Luke 18:1-8 Psalm 35:1-2 Psalm46:1-11 Psalm70:1-5 Jonah2:1-10 To the enemies of the Jackson/New G family:YE THAT ARE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE.You cant live in a glass house and throw stones.......

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!

I have been knowing Pastor Maurice Jackson forever and it is very hard to believe these accusations but you know what look what they did to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Just like he got with all power in his hands Pastor Maurice Jackson will be victorious in this situation. Keep your head up New Generation, Detroit has you up in prayer. Be Blessed!

You know I thought about something else, people are after other people's annointing in this day and age and as annointed as that man is there is no way that he did that horrific crime. I love him and I am a member of his old church and trust me he is being prayed for daily we love him and we know without a shadow of a doubt that GOD IS ABLE!!!!!


#29 Oct 23, 2006
My goodness people wake up,what do the girls stand to gain if the accusations werent true,but what does the pastor loose if he is guilty,of course he is going to say he didnt do it.
Just because a man becomes head of a church doesnt mean he cant do no wrong.
If hes not guilty then im sure God will make sure he goes free,but if he is guilty then he needs to be punished and dealt with harshly,personnaly if he was guilty he should loose his balls.

There is such a thing as setting someone up and being used by the devil to bring someone down....I am a faithful member of Pastor Jackson's church and I don't believe accusations that have been brought against my pastor...The bible does say touch not my anointing one and do my profit no harm...Whomever these girls are they will have to deal with the wrath of God and that is far worse than dealing with man...So, what does the girls have to lose--you deal with God's wrath and tell me....No one said Pastor Jackson was sinless but I will say that I don't believe he committed these horrific acts...I love you Pastor and I can't wait to see you SOON!!!!

dandy andy you must don't know how satan and his co-workers work...You need to get spiritual so you can open your eyes to the devil and how he operates...You saying wolf in sheeps clothing about someone you have probably never heard of let alone be careful because again the word says touch not my anointed one and do my profit no harm!!!!

well n.g.m its prophet not profit(but i could see where you could be confused where religion is involved)but as another poster said"why would these girls lie?" i'm sure you want to believe that your almighty pastor would not do such a thing.but he is a man FIRST,and a pastor second.maybe he can continue his good work behind bars.


#35 Oct 25, 2006
Robert, I agree with you that he is man first but it all boils down to you not knowing him or what he stands for so you really don't have an opinion either way. Why would the girls lie, it happens all the time.

Pastor Jackson is a man of integrity and God will prevail in this situation. The Bible says Satan is the accuser of the bretheren. We need to stand in prayer for him and his family.

"NEW GNERATION MEMBER"] but it all boils down to you not knowing him or what he stands for so you really don't have an opinion either way.

hate to bust your bubble.....but this is a public i do have an opinion.....and a place to state it.....


#38 Oct 28, 2006
I tend to agree with robert,the reason this is made public is so we can all have an opinion on this.
One thing i have noticed through all this speaking from an outsider who knows neither the girls nor the pastor,that those that know the girls believe they are telling the thruth,and those that know the pastor believe him to be innocent.Theres always three sides to a story,his side,their side and the truth.
New member im also sure robert knows what the pastor stands for,remember there are many men/woman that hide behind the pulpit and his followers just to cover their actions.If he is innocent then im sure God will keep him out of prison and will make sure the girls are punished for their lies.But if he is guilty then i sure hope he can live with the guilt he has ruined those girls lives.


#39 Oct 30, 2006
I never said that no one can voice their opinion since we all know this is a public forum...I just stated that no one should be saying he is guilty if they do not know him or have had no contact with him...Yes,he is my pastor and I will be in his corner because I know him and what he stood for---It is not in his character to hurt anyone especially a child...The bible says that everything works out for the good of those that love him and I know that all will work for the good of my pastor...God will prevail....Just keep my pastor and his family/church family in prayer!!!
I am not asking for vengeance on anyone that has done this...Vengeance is mine says the Lord...

New Generation...Its good that you and many others who know the pastor stick by them,after all if his congregation dont stand by him then who will.
I just hope that he isnt guilty not just for his sake but for his family.Like you said what he stood for wasnt to harm a child or anyone.But remeber we are all capable of doing harm to people,even if our intentions in the first place were not to.
I dont pray myself but i will keep them in my thoughts.
Is the pastor still pastoring the church or is he not able to untill the case is over?
