<quoted text> @ Help... Im a former member who just so happens to still be in love with the chicken dinners.. It hurts me to see the truth unravel bc i still love the HOP... I always will.. In my adult years I have grown to know Jesus for who He is! My savior! I didnt know Him when I was in the HOP. He took me out of the HOP and allowed me to walk the streets and experience the toughness of life... I lost everything at one point... My peace of mind, job, car... Everything you name it.. He began to send people in my life to tell me to try Jesus! I tried Him and I am happy to say that I know, that I know, that I know He is real! My relationship with Him is real! Its so real that He sends me non believers so I can share my testimony.. That evil burden and spirit that had me on drugs and chasing men(I'm a woman btw) is gone! There is a sense of peace deep within that helps me thru tough times!!! He had to show me that I could not function without Him!! Don't get me wrong I'm still a work in progress. But I tell ya there is a change in my life every since I decided to trust God and not man! I respect the existence of the HOP. After all not all those people are bad. My grandmother labored in the HOP! She loved the Lord! She never changed... At night I used to hear her praying out loud... Asking the Lord to keep her children! I remember riding in the car with her to the HOP one day! And a gospel song came on.. Her tears began to roll and she threw her hands up( almost lost control of the car) and hollered HALLELUJAH! I can still feel that same power that was in that car...It wasnt Daddies power, but the power lf God that kept her! She knew who was The Source! Im sorry to keep going on my friend.. But its not often that I get to tell the world the GOD IS and will remain! I asked God to show me His will and He did! I asked Him to give me a new heart and spirit and He did! Many days I ask Jesus to just take the wheel!!! Lord God!!!! Smh! Nothing like His grace! Be blessed! Our God is an awesome God!!
very uplifting! Yes there is no power like God's power. Only God can save, change, renew and put anyone on the right track of life. Jesus is the only name that can save and I pray that God will open the eyes of every member of the UHOP. I still have familyembers and friends that I want to see them calling on the name of JESUS!!!!!!!!

@BIG TINY Dont apologize my sister. Girlllll you Betta tell it everywhere you go. God is just like that. Once we get to speaking of his goodness and where he brought is from we just can't stop until the years start flowing. Go on YouTube and listen to Smokie Norful's song called Dear God. That song makes me look back an just want to praise him even more. Enjoyed your mini testimony as I know that's not all. I'm still a member BTW BUT not one of the "bad " ones lol.
I'm slowly getting more and more into the word for myself now and I'm actually learning. I recorded my pastor last week shoving db down our throats again might I add. I listened to it today and I read all through that crap. Some of them are so good at manipulating and the art of pursues ion that they can sell hot chocolate in Hell for 2k a cup. It may be humorous but They're just that good.

I still can't get over the hatred at the top<(whilemena and see) but they want the kingdom to appear that it's so full of love. I'm no psychologist but I was told that "hurting people hurt people" I fun this to be true. DB hurts poor defenseless maids that are there to serve him and nothing that goes on up on the mountain is that serious unless one of them got caught dipping her hand in the moneybag. A leader is suppose to be a servant to the people he leads. Hello!! N

Evidently I'm slow to the news (haven't been out). What is the deal on Belton with the defamation of character suit? I was told some time ago that he was busted down to a brother for performing a wedding out side of the HOP, between members mind you, but because it was performed outside of the HOP. I'm not sure how true that story is though. Please enlighten me on the whole thing.

sell hot chocolate in hell for 2k?? Now thats funny! I will not encourage u to leave for as I said i still love the HOP! There is definitely some good folk in there. Many of my family members are there. I dont give them problems about where they choose to worship bc they could NOT worship at all! Im sorry your pastor screwed u out of a good sermon! God' s word is like food to a starving body! WE NEED IT! I will ask God in my prayers to help me and you! Nothing is better than coming to know who God is! Im still a fool! Will cut up in a minute! But I can say that my heart is good! And i have no one to thank but Him! Be encouraged! Our God is provider! A teacher! He teaches us things in our thoughts daily! He leads us past danger ! He brings his children of like minds together! Our God is in control like never before! Im just sitting back watching Him work! Be blessed!

Additionally, DB was my pastor for many years! I thought then he was one of the most loving men of the cloth! Now when i started running a muck around the HOP of course he would put me in check! When he was first elected i went to see him in south philly. At the time i thought he was THE ONE. This was before he started talking to people sideways, draining bank accounts, and hitting grown men. Its such a shame! I mean it really hurts me. The HOP is all I know...... I dont want ANYTHING bad to happen to the HOP. It is a place of worship REGARDLESS of the idiots that run it....i will be in philadelphia for convocation.. Only to spectate, see what band is rolling and get a chicken dinner!!! Ahhhhhh! Those chicken dinners!

You have to pardon my creative sense of humor. Sometimes I'm a comedian in my mind LOL. In all honesty he should be ashamed at the religious crimes he's committing against his own people. I understand it though. It's so many people involved it's better to continue the lie than to tell the truth. Unfortunately, more of our bright black minds are being raised in this foolishness.
It gives me great joy when a young person can laugh at a Daddy joke and not tremble with fear that their head is going to pop off. Growing up I was terrified to laugh at anything about McCollough and Grace. We were afraid to throw away any UHOP literature. My dad had Sunday school books from decades when he left. The mental freedom of tossing those useless books in the trash with no guilt is amazing.
If you think that's harsh ask the leadership what they do with all the books they print that no one purchases LOL. Here's a better question, after McCollough passed away and Madison took over and upgraded all of those buildings what did they do with McCollough's blessed mercy seats?
^^^ THINK.....
They literally throw them away. I personally have one in my storage that was set out by the dumpster.

Belton seems like a likeable guy. I really would like to know if this law suit thing is true, and did he really get busted just for perfoming a marriage between 2 members outside of the church? WOW!

Good morning T.A.D. question why would you want to go back after all that time of being gone. What in the world would spark your interest??? Different man same plan, that says enough right there. Nothing has changed, false doctrine is still being preached, the programs are shorter, and he's still getting the members money just at a higher cost. Oh yeah he preaches for only 5 min if you are lucky. Well that sums up the service for ya!!

This is true about him officiating the wedding. It's a whole bunch of nonsense that's what it was.

You want the truth? Here goes. Belton didn't anything that bad to be crucified. It was stated he allowed a woman(nonmember) to come up on the mountain at first ward but got demoted shortly after performing the wedding of two members that was held at an event hall in Charlotte. Why was it not held at the HOP? Simply because the brides father is a Harrison who played on the Old Tigers shout band. Although he wasn't one of the out front individuals during the famous 1991 "McCullough then McCullough now" saga he was targeted because of his last name. Soooo once Clarence got word that a HARRISON(the enemy I suppose) will give his youngest daughter away they were advised the wedding CANNOT be held at the HOP. So they kicked out of pocket to pay for an event hall. Did I mention that Apostke Commodore is the brides cousin and was to perform the ceremony but punked out.(That's family for u) he did attend however. Sooooo long story short Belton got the shaft right after that

it's shameful that the leader of the UHOP have nothing better to do then bother in every ones affairs. His job is to lead people to God and not drive them out of the church. This is a prime example of the leader feeling he is above God and he thinks he can treat people anyway and his very large behind thinks he's going to get away with it. God is in control and not Daddy Bailey or Daddy Dee. What's so funny is if the bishop is in town and a minister is visiting the service, they take him right to the front and sit him
On the mountain. But elders that serve in the UHOP they push out. Now really is this of god? Are all the members of the hop this blind? Why are the members not praying and asking God to move all the mess from the head?
