That church has always been a source of scandal. Lots of rumors floating around town about child abuse, infidelity and both preachers, Westburg and Young abusing their church members. Sad, but unless the law steps - it will continue. The city is probably on bankroll -- so I doubt we see the closing of the church or the academy anytime soon....

The city isn't on bankroll and I would bet that the church dries up after this. They are a laughing stock. I used to be a member back in the 90's. Westberg did abuse people. So did Edwin Young. Of course that is all in how you define abuse. He mentally controlled people and by doing that separated them from their friends and family. He kept people in poverty by insinuating that if they moved for a better job they would go to hell. I actually heard him say that you had to "stay where you were planted". People think this scandal started and stopped with Edwin and while I don't think Westberg was a whoremongering lech who hid pedophiles, he certainly was an individual who did a monstrous amount of damage to a lot of lives. Hopefully this church dries up and everybody in it moves on with a lot of hard lessons learned. Even if it manages to stay functional, I would bet the school closes, they sell that building, and build a much smaller church to house their much smaller congregation.

Almost had figured out who you were CarolinaFathead. Now I'm not sure. I know someone very near Canton that used to go to FT in the 80s.

Or they can rent it out to Scientology, the Mormons or the Tea Party. Wait it would make a great night club! I wonder what the zoning laws are over there?

Never mind it could be a shelter for moderate republicans. They seem to be on the defensive lately.

The hell with that their dropping like flys in this state because of what they have sown. What comes around goes around.

Wait , it can be a petting zoo for all the cops, deputies and council officials convicted of being, well Junction City cops, deputies and council officials. Sort of like a prison where we can show our children the folly of scamming the people of Junction City.

Also we would know where they were at all times.

Why didn't I think of this before?

It doesn't matter what everyone's opinion is about the pastor. The facts still are being sorted out. Don't know anything about sexual sins going on but the truth is that the people in that church really do love God and want to do everything possible to go to heaven... Preachers do preach strong and if someone is not happy then they are welcome to move on... Just find a church that preaches the truth of Acts 2:38. That's what we apostolics believe and holiness, without which no man shall see the LORD. All the other stuff about your suffering at this church and this and that, I don't believe it. If it was true, you'd be taking it to GOD and the authorities and not the rest of the WORLD -- If you're heard is pure, your intentions would be pure too... You would be ware of making others stumble with doubt against GOD. so you see there is a sharp double edged sword... Like Saul sinned and David would not kill him because he had been God's annointed...so the true sheep will be careful in bringing an offence against the ALMIGHTY - just to remind you

Churches don't pay taxes. This is a crime in itself. All those people throwing their money away for years so the ministers could live a life of luxury. Also being able to say "see what we built" when they didn't have a darn thing to do with it. It was you poor and unfortunate people. Look where it is getting you now.

Better run while you can.

"But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."

God says that if Adam eats from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, then the day that he does so, he will die. But later Adam eats the forbidden fruit and yet lives for another 930 years.

2 Chronicles 18:22
Now therefore, behold, the Lord hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of these thy prophets.

Jeremiah 4:10
Ah, Lord GOD! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people.

Jeremiah 20:7
O Lord, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived.

2 Thessalonians 2:11
For this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.

For Rhodes who are talking bad about the youngs yes they have did some things that are WRONG!! but I don't think it's right that you talk about them like y'all are talkin because y'all don't really know what's going on all y'all know us what the media is telling y'all I have met the youngs personally and I would have never thought something like this would have happened but you shouldnt be talking about them just because u don't believe the same or has heard rumors because the BIBLE SAYS" TOUCH NOT MY ANOINTED" and he was God's anointed but he went astray everybody make mistakes I have met Jordan personally and I wouldnt have thought something like this would have happened he has a great voice but people make mistakes I mean come on they wernt holding people captive in thier church of people didn't like it the could leave and he wasn't taking people alway from their family just because people went to their church n didn't agree r like sumthin he said they SHOULD NOT get on a site and talk bad about somebody because we all fall short sometimes but I'm not saying they wernt wrong!! So for y'all who's being negative and spreading rumors please be quiet because if u don't have the full story behind what's happening u need to keep your mouth shut because GOD calls that GOSSIP!
