The purpose of this blog is not to dialogue with the saints. It is to warn them and to rebuke our pastors. To remind us what the Word of God says about our wicked deeds. If people are troubled by what is going on at our church, they need to seek God — not man. They need to read the Scriptures and make wrong right before it is to late. Before God. Yes, we will suffer for it. Count the cost. Because there is not much time left before judgement comes. God will not be mocked by His servants.
But God says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7). “But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen” (Jude 17-25).
Your comments are read and then deleted in order to keep them private. Praying for you, you are not alone, Jesus will help you.
This statement has been made to us for years. Pastor tells people who leave to not try to have any reasoning relationship with those of us still at Calvary Temple. If you leave — or get thrown out —NEVER reach back in to us. Why? In order to keep our blind eyes closed and our dulled hearts at ease. He certainly would not want a fresh, chill, breeze of the truth to awaken us out of our death-like slumber.
But God says, “Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:17-18). “While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out” (Matthew 25:5-8).
We are often reminded that we are given the best care by our pastors. In order to help us make it to heaven. Hundreds of hours each week by our several pastors and their wives is devoted to our care. They say.
Examples of pastoral care at Calvary Temple:
- Taps on the shoulder during service for secret meetings in the back offices.
- Questioning our actual obedience to pastor’s directives in our individual lives. “Slow obedience is no obedience.”
- Encouragement to let the pastors/church raise our children. “It takes a village…”
- Public praise for those who do the most to prop up the House of Scott.
- Reminders of how blessed we are to have such a “man of God”.
- Reminders telling us not to ask questions. “Don’t meddle in matters too great for us.”
- Reminders not to talk to any reporters/legal people about Calvary Temple.
- Reminders that if pastor goes down we all go down with him. “Strike the shepherd and the sheep scatter.”
- Reminders that pastor needs more “stuff” (cars, gadgets, trips) to reach the unreachable rich all around us.
- Sermons on how to avoid people who are trying to talk with us about our destroyed families.
- Secret meetings to find out who is “tattling” about our church.
- More reminders “You just need to trust us — you don’t need to understand — we are the voice of God to you.”
But God says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30). “Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors” (Isaiah 53:12).
Pastor likes divorce. He encourages divorce. The Bible text that he cites to push divorce among us is Isaiah 50:1, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Where is your mother’s certificate of divorce, with which I sent her away? Or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you Behold, for your iniquities you were sold, and for your transgressions your mother was sent away.‘” Fact: at pastor’s directive there are currently over two dozen men and women who have divorced and/or are in the process of separating/divorcing from their spouses. Question: either there is a great deal of adultery in our church, and it is not as holy and God-fearing as we promote, or pastor is unscripterally using divorce to control people and bind them to himself. Removing all obstacles (people) that stand in his way.
But God says, “But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant. Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth. “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the Lord of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless” (Malachi 2:14-16) “And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause?” He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” They said to him, “Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce and to send her away?” He said to them, “Because of your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you:whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery” (Matthew 19:3-9).
Our pastors, deacons, captains are the watchmen. They tell us that they watch for our souls. But generally, they look out for themselves. Even after they leave us, they remain publicly silent about what goes on here. The reason: they have not repented to God and men for their own evil deeds committed in service to pastor.
But God says, “His watchmen are blind; they are all without knowledge; they are all silent dogs; they cannot bark, dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber. The dogs have a mighty appetite; they never have enough. But they are shepherds who have no understanding; they have all turned to their own way, each to his own gain, one and all” (Isaiah 56:10-11). “I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent” (Revelation 3:18).
After serving pastor and his vision for five/ten/thirty years, you will be disposed of, or walk away — empty. You will be left alone without family, friends, structure, or much hope in God. You have been robbed. Everything shaken. Doubting God’s redemption and mercy and love for you.
But God says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (James 1:5) “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30). “Fear them not therefore:for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light:and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul:but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:26-28).
But God says, “My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name. The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity. For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts.But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the Lord of hosts. Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law. Have we not all one father? Hath not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers” (Malachi 2:5-10). “Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment” (Malachi 2:17). “Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not” (Malachi 3:18).
