tired of the BS

Ok, i have kept quiet long enough, read enough - stopped reading posts..but then recently I have heard even more things that make me sick to what BS is doing to others. Yes I was one of the ones just like most of you that enjoyed attending TCAP & feeling that no matter what my story was, I felt at home with my relationship with Christ. I even volunteered like crazy & enjoyed it,,,til things started falling apart. I didnt try & fight anything- just took myself & my family & decided that we needed to worship some where else. We left many friends behind & still care/communicate & pray for ones still at TCAP that are being effected by the actions of others. I have no ill will for those staying at TCAP,I really have no ill will towards BS or his family bc as Christians we are taught to forgive... buttttt I am still disgusted on how BS stilll goes on FB to act like "poor me" and did i see a comment that he feels more like Christ bc everyone is against him? really, are you still trying to act like you didnt take $$$ from the church - actions that are ruining not only your family but others? and then act like you are not --remember the services you have taught us to wait til we are married to have sex - guess that doesnt matter if you have no plans to marry bc the other person is still married? did u also teach us to give a 10% tithe,,,but i guess you did teach us that we could ask for it back--no questions asked --guess that means you too huh - no questions asked. i know there are still many people that love BS & think hes innocent ---just know that 99.9% of the rumors & allegations are true & that the stuff you see on FB from BS & supporters are just what they /He want you to see,,,many of us still have hurtful/mean texts from BS - but we feel it didnt want to air all that bc then we too would have a target on our back,,,BS i am sure you know what you are doing is wrong & you hide - hoping that not everyone knows the truth - but as you taught us, God knows all,,and the reason everyone doesnt stand on a hill & shout the truth is bc we still pray for you sorry butt that you get help & stop lying, stealing, cheating & ruining others lives,,,you say you dont understand why some people drag your family into this,,actually i think many are trying help drag ur family out. AS MANY OF US WERE TOLD YEARS AGO TO NOT GET TOO INVOLVED AT TCAP BC OF THE STUNTS BENNETT PULLED, BUT WE HUNG IN THERE,,AND WE TOO GOT HURT/EFFECTED BY HIS ACTIONS..MY OPINION AS A CHRISTIAN IS THAT WE ALL KEEP PRAYING FOR THOSE HURT BY HIS ACTIONS, PRAY FOR HIM TO GET HIS HEAD ON STRAIGHT, PRAY FOR THOSE TRYING TO MAKE TCAP A BETTER PLACE,,, THATS THE BEST WAY YOU CAN SUPPORT BS, BUT TO SIT HERE & ACT LIKE POOR BS IS THE VICTIM - IS WRONG, BC MANY OF YOU DO NOT KNOW THE DAMAGE HE IS DOING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS/TEXTS/PHONE CALLS - YEA MAYBE ITS EASY TO GO ON HERE WITHOUT A NAME ASSOCIATED TO THE POST ( THERES MUCH SAFETY TO THAT) BUT THATS NOT COWARDLY - I STILL PRAY FOR THE GUY WHO IS GIVING ALL INDICATIONS OF WHAT A COWARD IS - HES DAY WILL COME WHEN HE HAS TO ANSWER TO A HIGHER JUDGE..REMEMBER THATS THE JUDGE YOU TAUGHT US ALL TO WORSHIP - NOT YOU. still praying......

more people would speak out if they had not been threatened or have been intimidated by him. He is not a stable man in my opinion and that is why people remain quiet. A restraining order is usually not necessary for most normal people!

This man ran me off the road one evening and still to this day, I have no idea why?? I always thought it was strange that he was a pastor with such a dangerous behavior. I couldnt imagine going to a church where a man like that claiming to love God chases people down. I really did absolutely nothing to the man!

Yes more would speak out...I agree,,i believe for 2 reasons:

1. We feel as Christians we should not judge n merely pray for those that need help...( I will pray and I'm not judging..just don't want more to get hurt or not see through the crap to see the lies)
2. Yea we are worried about a target on our backs

But like most we still hope he gets help bc we know he'll be judged in the end- just want the innocent to stop being effected/ threatened....they are still trying to trust in God-- pretty cool from what I see that people that have been so burnt by lies n all they still are trying to leave it in Gods hands.

For those that care and are wondering --- noooo not all church is like this, jus like in life, there are people u can't trust...and like I've heard before, just bc you had a bad meal doesn't mean u stop eating!!

I am clueless to this topic, but scanned through some posts.

My suggestion:

If you are unhappy with your church, then visit others and introduce yourself and family.

instead of complaining...do something about it.

I completely understand having moved between states several times, and forced to finding a church to call home.

i have lived in Columbus 10 years and have not found the fit. I travel to Canton to go to church with my Mom.

my church activities has been narrowed to every other month due to fit.

PS: when you visit a new church and are cornered about money on the 1st visit, I never return to that church.

it is simple. He got caught and has no way to manipulate his way out. The hypocrisy of him giving marriage counseling while destroying a family is disturbing to say the least. His children have always known and continued to lie for him until he made it impossible to cover up any longer. They will turn on him and try to follow in his footsteps by playing the victims now. They didn't mind his behavior when they were getting unreasonable pay checks for little to no effort. Tithes should go to helping others, growing the church, taking the gospel out, and sharing Gods love, not lining the pockets of the Smith family and certainly not paying their own bills! I would like to know if BS tithed after all his sermons on it. My very educated guess is NO.

Just thinking about all of the mess at TCAP this morning. I was a regular attender a few years ago and met one of the assistant pastors from Virginia (I think he pastored a church in Michigan before coming to TCAP). In the talks that I had with him, he really seemed like a nice guy. Does anyone know what happened to him?

You must be talking about Pastor Eric Brown. I would return immediately to TCAP if they brought him back. I think about 50 or more people would return to hear him preach again. I would come back tithing!! I would trust that my hard earned money would be used for God's good, not for a family to monopolize on others hard work. Pastor Brown is a truly a man of God!

Yes, Eric was his name (I hate to admit it but I had forgotten). When I last attended TCAP fall they had a speaker from Texas come in and his sermon was wonderful. My gf and I both commented that we were really moved by the message and it was much more than the sense of "entertainment" that we were used to when we attend TCAP.

Just curious: I know there wre a few other assistants with Eric. Did they all leave at the same time, and was it because of internal conflicts with leadership?

I believe they all left under horrid conditions and with much of the same complaints. There is a very long list of associates and staff that were let go or quit because they stood up to BS for what was right.
People need to think about BS turnover rate with staff and members. He has had 5/6 associate pastors all leaving on bad terms. Several other staff and pastors also left. His current staff wants him out. A board made up by him of his closest friends want him out. He mentions disgruntled church members all the time. Doesn't this all strike anyone as odd? It is just like the bully to play the victim. He has destroyed lives for the past 9 years. Now that everything he and his family did to others is coming back on them is just scripture being fulfilled. You shall reap what you sow.

Thanks for the clarification.
I had one other question regarding events from a couple of years ago when "Rowdy Roddy" started using the church on Saturday evenings. I live near the mall so I drove by one Saturday and realized that they were having a service. Great, I thought, a Saturday evening option. I literally FREAKED when I saw who was preaching. I thought that maybe WHC had taken over TCAP.
Don't get me wrong. I think it is great for churches to allow other congregations to use their facilities when they are empty, but I have no respect for Rod and his ilk (Oral, Benny, Creflo, etc.). The stories about his abuse of $$$$$ go back many years. He puts BS in a good light. Does anyone know if the WHC "alignment" was a church board decision or strictly a BS decision?

im sure it was all BS. I heard Parsley was just testing the area to see if it was worth starting a church on that side of town.

If people only knew the devastation he has caused so many people. That man you see delivering the sermons is not the real BS. The real BS makes nasty references to women, racial remarks, and thinks everyone is stupid but him. I can't tell you how many times he talked about other members and their private conversations. And then make fun of them. It's funny how everything he is crying about, he ACTUALLY did to other people. People that didn't deserve it. He has brought all of this on himself and his family. Don't let them fool you, I think they are all deceitful.

smithmary4743 October 23, 2013 at 2:10 am The teachers are not receiving their benefits because of the incompetent people representing the church who canít pay the bill on time. Scott is is not taking care of the people, he only cares whether or not he gets paid. He doesnít care about the teachers, he cares about himself. So be concerned about the innocent employees who are doing their job and have nothing to do with this. Blame Scott, who ps everyone thinks is gay.

This speaks volume to the real Mary. Now she cares about the teachers? I hope they get on here and tell some of their dealings with the little brat she is. At least he didn't use the money for a special surgery.
