This is Jennie, you refer to me as daughter in-law. I was told about these posts and just thought I would ease your mind that not every one runs around doing whatever they want. I was ordained in 2006, and while yes there are many people in this world who run around choosing to live life how it pleases them, I desire to please the Father. I'm not sure what benefit it would be to anyone to be married by someone who couldn't officiate a wedding.
I'm sure after reading some of these posts that someone will want to say things about our family, but I'll tell you this..... Time is short and the Father is coming quickly, and while I can see that it would be easy to be sucked into wanting to read, comment and defend a thousand things on here, I just don't desire to spend my time that way. There are so many people who still dont know the love of our Lord Jesus Christ, and I would rather spend my time preaching the good news in these times than bickering.
I hope that you find some peace and are one day able to move on from whatever hurt you and sent you to this site.

I hope that you too will find some peace and are one day able to move on from whatever sent YOU to this site. Go forward preaching the good news just like the DRs, Powers, DuFresne, Webb, Jacobs, etc. When do you get to be DR also, seems you fit right in with the rest of the self serving money grubbing group that you associate with. Go forward and BE BLESSED, BE BLESSED

I don't know about being dismissed, but I do know I the daughter in-law married them she is ordaine I was at the service when they were all ordained in Merced.
yeah, anyone can be ordained and anyone can become a DR and anyone can be an APOSTLE, just bring in enough money and a DR will ORDAIN you and you can also be a PROPHET or an APOSTLE. Just as DR Matthews became a DR because of his years of CHRISTIAN work and his exemplory
CHRISTIAN example.

Jennie,

It's a good thing that you desire to spend your time preaching the good news, but it is a fact that the "good news" is being profoundly compromised by evil people. People who pretend to be God's servants when, in reality, they are only interested in furthering their own agendas, which are so despicable that no one, especially God, could never approve of! Please realize that the things going on in these, so called, churches draw more people away from God than you can ever begin to reach in several lifetimes!

You know the thing with all these pastors or Reverends is that once members start to leave from these churches majority of the Pastors speak curses over their lives excuse me how can you curse something that God blessed just because someone left their churches so sad

I would not be too concerned about the 'curses' these so-called pastors or reverends or DRs speak over anyone. They are a bunch of ego maniacs and speak these 'curses' in an attempt to frighten others from opening their eyes and leaving also. Just as the self proclaimed 'Saint' has refused to openly admit he was wrong and apologize, these 'men of God' are self absorbed and ego driven.

this is so funny. And both these 'men of God' and 'christian congregations' wonder why folks turn away from 'the church'. Fine examples here. I just hope Andy, his daughter, and sisters can make a better life and move on from this travesty and 'den of sin'. It is time folks and congregations like Matthews, DuFresne, Webb, Jacobs, Powers, Silva, Rojas, Edwards, etc. get a real 'DR.' to treat them and the sickness they have. Stealing is wrong whether it is from the old or not. Taking another man's wife is wrong, whether it is your own son's wife (sick, sick, sick) or not. How any person, especially another woman could condone what Lorena has done and view her as a Chritian example for their children, is beyond comprehension. I wonder how the other Matthews daughters and sons 'really' feel about Lorena and their dad's so called marriage. A word to any of the other men in the church, especially family members, watch out for the 'counseling' your women folk are getting from the 'Dr.' Just saying.

@ Saint: Apostle DR Jimmy Powers aka Saint
You have been outed so I don't expect an open apology from you because you are such an egotistical, money grubbing, power seeking, narcissistic indvidual. But it was fun outing you for the person you are, posting on here as Saint.

Enjoy yourself here on earth cause your after life will be much less pleasant.

Yep Mr Apostle Dr Jimmy Saint Powers it does appear you have been exposed again. You and your elk have done tremendous damage to so many churches and have driven away thousands of people. You and the rest of those ego driven DRs will be the cause of many turning their backs on the church and God. May you and the other Drs (Matthews, DeFresne, Jacobs, etc.) burn in hell along with those you have stolen from and casued to turn their backs on God because of your examples. Best of luck to Andy and the rest of the Matthews family. May you find peace and reconciliation within your family, even if it does not include Dr Bill and Lorena.

Well, i'm not shocked at all, if he can sleep with his daughter in law and treat his family and wife the way he has, nothing surprises me anymore.

By DR Matthews and any of the other self proclaimed 'DRs". They prey on women while supposedly they 'pray' for women. Give themselves big titles to appear more important so others will succumb to them.

Just how far could these so called "pastors, apostles, DRs" get without exploiting women? I don't think very far, and the problem is that women are taught from the beginning that they must submit to everyone, their parents, their husbands, their pastors-no questions asked! In addition, women are told that they should not gossip, but what does that really mean to a woman in this situation? Don't speak out when you or someone you know has or is being violated? Women are worse than dogs in this system because they are, not only, mistreated but asked to perpetuate the same doctrine of mistreatment! They must teach other females how to submit to the same ideas that have enslaved them! All the while, they are being told that this is God's will! This is an outrageous betrayal. We would all do well to take another look-with clear eyes-at just what Jesus wants for women. I can guarantee he never intended for this **** to be happening!

After the Hoogenboom trials, MN law was changed so that a pastor cannot have sexual relations with a member of his congregation. Similar to a doctor-patient relationship. A priest in the metro was recently charged, but I do not know the outcome.

As far as I am concerned, James Hoogenboom is a sexual predator.

The laws were put in place making it a crime but that doesn't stop or prevent it from happening. Just as student \ teacher relations. These so-called 'men of God' are living a pretty good life, scamming /stealing / and extorting from others that are submissive because that is how they have been indoctrinated. Women are used and abused. And the young girls become women and are subjected to the same teachings and treatment.
Such a mess

I am so sorry for you and all you may have gone through. I hope you get some help for yourself and don't walk away from God. I too have experienced some of that from bill matthews and his wife was alive at the time. I would strongly suggest that you do not give out your name for your own sake. But do get some help, find someone you can trust outside the whole fake church shit and save yourself. I thank you for letting everyone know but be sure to keep yourself protected. Sending prayers
