It's sad that Derek has ruined the Rimson name. All of the Rimson's are good people except Derek and his bunch. I watched the convocation yesterday and Bishop Blake tried to give Derek a chance and it back fired, blew up in his face. It's sad.
as long as derek keep pimping God's people it will always blow up in his face

I read the rip off report. I used to think Derek was really doing the right things like the people on the rip off report forum stated until I read the numerous comments about what happened at Liberty.I saw him in Detroit in 2007, he was a guest speaker at Bishop Alfred Knight's church. Derek was talking about how the Church of God in Christ needed younger people leading and basically complaining about the entire denomination. I could tell he was tired of being a part of the Church of God in Christ.I was going to visit his church while I was in Los Angeles in 2009 but I didn't have enough time to visit. My hope is that he gets his life together. There are people who support him and evidently were not members of his church and there are people who despise him because their church is gone and they say it's his fault. The people at his church in Detroit and Kalamazoo,Michigan are saying he scammed them out of their money and did unsavory things. All I can say is everybody isn't lieing on him, but somebody definitely is lieing. Either he's a man of God or a fake. Don't hate him because if he did do the things he is said to have done only God can truley repay.

and he might just fall dead in the pulpit for what he did to Bishop Harvey Tyler and the Liberty COGIC family

You really just need to save the drama about Evang. Chris Johnson. She was told by Mother Thomas to leave the man of God alone because she was talking about sueing Bishop Blake. The mother told her you better leave the man of God alone before God puts his hand on you. God is the one that Judges us for what we do so you just need to save the drama
By the way that so called mother Thomas hah tongue cancel:. I was told that she died. And so called mother aliceey Washington called the evangelist for prayer they both are dead, so u,, better watch your mouth on the woman of God...no lies will. Ever change WHO she is,, touch not God's anointed.
