The church desperately needs to rectify the perception to God's Chosen Jewish people that Jesus is the "God of the Gentiles" and needs to proactively reveal that He is the prophesied Messiah of Israel, God's pre-existent Only Begotten Son and the Reedemer of Israel and all humanity - Genesis 12:2,= Galatians 3:8, John 3:16, and John 14:6.

Why does the congregation not move to do that which is commanded of them?

I have personally gotten to know several people that attend his church... Some of the most hypocritical, judgemental, and hateful people I have had the displeasure of knowing. All the majority care about is to look good for others and make people believe they are so "holy", when in reality they are stuck up and use the bible and God to feel they are better than everyone else. Im not saying all of the church is this way, but many of the people I have met there are, and I wouldn't ever go back. I've been treated worse by the "Christians" in that church, than I have by anyone outside of it put together. The services are the same recite of words every single Sunday, it almost seems fake. I did not at all feel the Spirit in this place. It just seemed to be "all for show." My personal opinion. I'm just accustomed to churches that are alive, and the people are genuine and warm and you can just feel the love as soon as you walk through the door. The services there feel more like a funeral than a worship service... That place is dead and the people are simply still going through the motions.

I visited there once too and I concur. While I was there, however, I heard an interesting story. A man told me that the current administration has frequently relied on first lady Michelle Obama to relate to the American people, and she attempted to do it again recently by proudly declaring her affection for Spanx, the popular brand of undergarments used by women to slim down. Most women who wear these undergarments do so because they have thunder thighs, bodacious buns, big bellies, or all three. The first lady did not comment on which body part she is attacking with her choice in underwear, but the man related to me that it was probably her buns.

I worked with a young lady back in 2004 who claimed to be dating Jeff Schreve. She talked like it was a serious relationship....perhaps she was delusional. She used to talk about church services and Jeff all the time and described the lyrical dancing that was performed during church services. About 3-4 years later I was checking out an online dating service and there was a profile for Jeff Schreve. Now someone may have set it up without his knowledge, I don't know, but the profile was most definitely him and it was quite deviant to say the least. I think I may have even had a message or two from him...can't remember. Not making any of this up....it is all true. The young lady who claimed to be dating him was named Amanda and she was divorced with 2 young children and was from Magnolia, AR but currently living in Wake Village. Not too long ago I think I read where he was married and has been for many years and has 2 grown children?? Ever since I found that out, I have always wondered about him......not in a good way either.

I respect your point of view but I don't like to judge a book by it's cover. Case in point - Long ago, I took an odd job on a farm to try and help make ends meet. One of my duties was to shovel manure in the barn. One day, in walks a woman with skin tight pants on. You could see every nook and cranny, including her butt crack and cameltoe, and also the curvaceous outline of her hot buns. I continued to work while she pranced around, showing her hot rear to me. Eventually, she turned around, pulled down her pants, spread her butt cheeks and told me to stick it all the way in.

"Why the hell would I do that," I asked. "Isn't that where manure comes from in the first place."

She gave me a disgusted look, told me to go pee in a boot and learn the Navy owl poem. I didn't understand at first but eventually I did, which made me a better man and full of wisdom. So it seems obvious to me after that experience that we need to be more caring and tolerant of people.

Well my goodness, what an experience you had! Let me go pee in a boot and find out all about that Navy owl poem! My "point of view" as you refer to actual events, is that I would not want to attend a church where the pastor is either having an affair with someone other than his wife, or at least leading a young lady to believe that they are in a serious relationship.....that can be quite mentally and emotionally harmful to the young lady as well as his wife. I also would not expect to find a profile for my pastor on a racy dating website. That's all. There are some professionals that are expected to be held to higher standards than others......public servants such as policemen, clergymen, judges, doctors, nurses, etc. In my own profession, I cannot engage in certain activities that others are free to do, as I could put my license in jeopardy. Jeff Schreve is free to do as he pleases and I really couldn't care less what he does and I'm not judging him.....simply stating the facts of what I witnessed.....doesn't he get in front of his congregation and serve as a "witness to God" every Sunday?? For all I know, during that time, he may have been separated from his wife and looking for other companionship...nobody really knows except him.

My experience is what causes me to be filled with compassion and concern for my fellow man. I didn't mean to ruffle any feathers by telling it but it's important as a window into my psyche. I am not a man of the cloth myself but there's a long tradition of such men being good family men and sill having a little love muffin on the side. I'm not saying that this man is double dipping, mind you, but it could be that he engages in trying to assist wayward women and the best way to meet them is to go to where they are. Jesus ate with the prostitutes so perhaps this man simply goes on a dating site to find women who need to see the light? I personally appreciate a pastor who can go to the great unwashed by day and go home to his wife and children at night. It's all in the line of work, so to speak, and I would not assume that he's a bad man simply because his photo is on the internet. I personally have been with many women and yet am still one hell of a Christian who goes to Church nearly every damn Sunday.

Billy Graham has maintained a life of integrity

Maybe one of the most important nights in Graham’s ministry happened in a hotel room in Modesto, CA in 1948. Billy and his young team laid out some principles for their ministry and they all agreed to live by them. They would be above reproach regarding money. No matter how high the offerings were, they would receive modest salaries. They would also let local leadership manage all the funds for each crusade. Billy’s team agreed to stay away from even the appearance of evil with other women. They would not even get in an elevator alone with a woman! They would avoid any exaggeration when it came to describing the fruit of their ministry. And Billy’s team would refuse to criticize other ministries or even respond to criticism. These principles became known to them as the Modesto Manifesto, and they gave themselves to this for over 50 years!

So you are implying that women and men who use online dating websites are "wayward"? I know a lot of both sexes who use these sites. It gives one the opportunity to exchange emails, talk one the phone and generally get to know enough about each one's personality without having to meet in person and remain anonymous without any strings attached and without hurting each others feelings. Nothing wrong with that. It saves a lot of time doing it this way rather than spending time and money going out on dates when one or both know the relationship is not going to work if the couple have nothing in common or have different beliefs. As I said, I have used these types of websites and I certainly don't consider my "wayward", nor do I consider any other people I know who use these sites "wayward". I worship Christ, but my working hours do no allow for me to physically go to a church, but He is in my heart, and that's what counts.

I doubt seriously if something were going on that he would open a dating account with his actual name, for starters. Texarkana isn't very big and he's a well known guy. Secondly, as for the Isaac comment, no, Jeff is not a prosperity or Word Of Faith preacher so they're not going to be saying the same thing. And this is a good thing, in favor of Jeff. Check that one out, please. Next, for the user who insists the Bible is a fairy tale, why are you writing a review of the church? You don't agree with the Bible. It makes sense you wouldn't like the church too much. I'd be worried for FBC if you and it were seeing eye to eye. For the 'overrated' and the like comments.. It is a church where people are dressed up because they view Jesus not only as a friend but as a holy God who deserves our respect and reverence. If you dress up to go on dates or to big events, you should show at least that much respect and care to praise the Creator of everything. This church is very much alive and views the Sunday morning service as time set aside to God to on His day to honor Him. I hate to have read so much anger and distaste from the comments here. FBC is my new church home. It's a beautiful place to worship God and fellowhip with other believers. Jesus is not only the savior of the Gentiles. Jesus is the only way to God, for the Jew and Greek, per the Bible also. There aren't two routes to Heaven. I pray that as Christians we are able to accept that Jesus is for the sick, not the well, and that all of us are being sanctified daily by Him. We are all in process and will be until we are glorified with Him in Heaven. The sermons here are gospel centered and don't shy from discussing sin and the repentance God offers us of it. I am grateful to have found a church that strictly preaches the Bible.

Those are warm and lovely sentiments. I'm not that religious myself and by that I mean I'm not a nut about it. But I believe in doing good to all, even black people and others who ruffle my feathers. I often go to Church when it's the holidays because I want good karma before the presents are passed out. A pastor I saw on TV one time said that a man can get with many women if he wants because all the bigwigs int he Old Testament had many wives so I wouldn't be too hard on this man if he likes a little sweet action on the side. If his wife is frigid or whatnot, he probably needs someone else to help satisfy his carnal urges. He sounds like one hell of a preacher so that's all that matters in the end.
