This is such a stupid exchange. I agree with the person who pointed out Proverbs 18:8.(Note: For AttendedFaithChristian, it sure would be nice if you would have actually read the posts you were railing against. IT WAS NOT PROVERBS 18:18 THAT YOU WERE DIRECTED TO AND KEPT QUOTING. IT WAS PROVERBS 18:8, and that one fits precisely.)

In any event, some of my old friends at Faith Christian tried to draw me into a round of Markus bashing, and I would not bite. I agree that believers--especially ministers--should be made aware of their sins and brought under accountability for them. Not ONE of you here are doing that. All you are doing is railing about something about which you know little or nothing. I see nothing biblical or constructive about what has taken place here.

I do not defend Mark Bishop. He was my friend all the years that I lived in Panama City. If he has sinned, then you here who sit in judgment, let the one of you who is without sin cast the first stone. If you think he has sinned, then go to him and tell him in the way the Bible commands and quit gossiping about him in a public forum.

Either help restore a brother or shut the hell up!

Body of Christ: to whom much is given of him MUCH shall be required. I am a little flabergasted at what I have read here today and to find out that this man that I heard at a meeting in St. Louis and that used to be affiliated with a very Well-known prominent Pastor in Atlanta, is guilty of all these things. The only thing that I have to say is this: " let him who thinks that he standeth .. take heed lest YE fall... ye without sin cast the first stone... for the LOVE of money is the root to all evil..and Brethren, if a man be OVERTAKEN in a fault, YE WHICH ARE SPIRITUAL restore such an one IN THE SPIRIT OF MEEKNESS, CONSIDERING THYSELF... LEST THOU ALSO BE TEMPTED!! Be ye ONE ANOTHER's Burdens and SO FULFILL the law of Christ.." I know this may be the judgement of God.. but let us still pray for MERCY and God's Restoration for Pastor Bishop..

Remember David- a man after God's own heart.. remember Moses... rmember your own sins. then .. Remember God's forgiveness and mercy. you'll need it someday too.

God bless you my fellow members for we are all ONE body.. if one suffers.. WE ALL SUFFER AND ARE LAME. let us HEAL one another and not HATE one Another.. let us LOVE one another AS CHRIST HIMSELF loves us and begin to operate in that all conquering and healing LOVE of God.. Let's act like who the bible says that we are and FORGIVE and RECONCILE our BROTHER!!!
For it is THE LOVE OF GOD..that brings a man to repentence.

I just moved to pcb and attended this church for easter. I thought the worship was good but i felt that when Mark Bishop was preaching, he didn't seem very connected. It seemed more like him just reading from the bible instead of an actuall message. I really want to find a good church so i want to give this church a chance. I think there are alot of good people that might be mislead. My old church was similar to willow creek in chicago. If anyone knows of a church worth attending please respond. Untill then i will still attend Faith Christian and look for the good instead of trying to find bad. Thanks

If u are looking for a great church u should visit EastGate Christian Fellowship. Our web address is www.eastgatefellowship.net . I found this church by browsing the internet looking for a church. You can go to the web site and watch previous sermons and also we stream the services on Sunday morning and Wednesday nite so u can do as I did, watch if u like, and kind of get a feel for it before attending. If u are looking for a come as u are place to learn about our saviour then this is the place.

So, It's okay that Markus is still married to Margie, yet allows Fany Rojas and her two children to live with him in his mansion? I hear she's really into Prada and expects to wear it all the time now with his income.

I am ashamed of myself for even reading this crap but i am glad for the chance to defend my pastor!!!
I came to fcfc right after this all happened and I absolutly fell in love with the church,people and pastor included... he is a wonderful man...who obviously had his downfalls in life....which havent we all? Our screw ups just were not made public!
My point is this, Who are any of us to judge him her or anyone for that matter? the only parts of the story we know are the gossip worthy parts and none of us know the TRUTH so why judge? I know this man is aware of his mistakes but he is willing to move on he had an obligation to deliver the word of god to his congregation and that is what he is doing!!! end of story leave the man alone....though i am as guilty as all of you for reading this stuff..... why do we even care? dont we got enough of our own lives to deal with and focus on?

If you really want a good church to worhip in, check out Northstar on the corner of 23rd and 390 in Panama City. They have an awesome childrens/teens program. After leaving Faith Chrisian, we are now going here. I just can't support a pastor (Bishop) who is on his 2nd divorce (punched his wife) and living w/ his gf. A pastor should have higher standards than that. Our tithe put his daughter through college.

Yes, we have all had downfalls and made mistakes. This is not crap! It's making others aware of a false prophet who is robbing you blind. The only prosperity he believes in is his own. You don't have a clue to his lavish lifestyle. How many in the congregation live in 10000 sq ft mansions? This so called man of God is not a person I want to follow anymore. He's a wife beater, a womanizer and a thief. That's not gossip, that's fact.
