Once again here is a church member who has been brainwashed by "Pastor Thompson". Open your eyes. He stole money from his own church. It amazes me the ignorance of some people. For your sake I hope God brings clarity to you so that you can understand that not all pastors are God serving people. Some are self serving.

What a totally outrageous comment. Your Pastor, you must be kidding. David Thompson is no man of God, he is a convicted felon that brought immeasurable damage to the work of God.

The Bible teaches that when "The blind lead the blind and they both fall in the ditch." For one to blindly follow such a person is a reproach.

I have no problem repeating myself. I want everyone to know what the UPCI is really about. I can only hope that these recent events will open some eyes before they waste their life in this cult.
I am so sorry to have to say.....I agree with you....we should not have to even know of such stories. Let alone know and have lived though 2 of them myself....the willie davis and leo recio (son-in-law) one.

so sad!

Wonder what the current situation is, with the church, the imprisoned, etc. Seems like some followup is needed.

It's so sad I am currently dealing with this at Disciples of Christ in NC. He has misused the money so much he think he is entitled. Guess what I resigned from the Financial Secretary position and him and his wife scandal my name. I'm a devil cause I stood up to the man of God. I don't have the Holy Ghost or as his wife say I am all these horrible lies. Thanks to the word of God I know better. If it was anyone else in that church I would be a little less hurt but the Leader of no. God is my redeemer, he is the one who died for me so that I could have a right to the tree of life. I REFUSE TO LET ANY MAN OR WOMAN PREACH TO ME AND NOT FOLLOW THERE OWN TEACHING. If you lie you will steal. I pray for the Littles but I have to move on, God has a plan for me. So if anyone stays in this type of mess only to please man go ahead. BUT AS FOR ME AND MY FAMILY WE WILL FOLLOW CHRIST. When we see a man of God fall we pray for them. But when you continue to lie, steal and cheat.......GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!! MY WALK FOR CHRIST IS FORREAL..........
