Mark the Men

Let’s look at our other pastors who seem so nice. Are they also committing deeds of destruction in God’s name? Do not be deceived by nice words and appearances. 

Pastor #1 — loyal to Pastor Scott rather than God. Cut off sister and family. Previously encouraged three children of another Christian family to run away from home and live with him. Two of the children have had nothing to do with their parents/siblings in over twenty years. Recently, he helped break up the marriage of his Christian nephew. 

Pastor #2 — son-in-law to Pastor Scott. Loyal. Nearly cut off mother years ago, presented her with three pages of personal rebukes. 

Pastor #3 — recently crippled in a terrible motorcycle accident (pray for him). Sat in on many markings. Has stated more than once that we have destroyed lots of families here at Calvary Temple.

Pastor #4 — loyal to pastor rather than loyal to God. Has cut off his sister, his wife’s sister and family, and his parents who left Calvary. (But has negotiated a deal so he now has access to his parents) 

Pastor #5 — a pastor to Calvary Temple in Africa until three years ago when he was kicked out by the Kenyan government on allegations of destroying families there. Is privately known, along with his deacon brother, as Pastor Scott’s pit bull. Presided over the destruction of several marriages and families here since his return from Africa. 

Pastor #6 — divorced his wife and children because they would not go to Africa with him. Remarried to Kenyan woman last year. 

Pastor #7 — loyal to Pastor Scott. Recently returned to the States after seventeen years in Kenya. Leaving Calvary Temple as a friend to start an affiliated church in New York.

Pastor #8 — returned from Maine to Africa to Sterling. Loyal to pastor rather than God. Allegations of misleading the congregation with financial dealings at a church he had in Maine in the 1990’s.   

God says, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf:but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil. And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen” (Romans 16:17-20). 

In Greek, the word mark is skopeó and it means, “To look at, regard attentively, take heed, beware, consider.” The word simple is akakos and it means, “Innocent, guileless, simple.”

"Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from me, warn people immediately. If I warn the wicked, saying, ‘You are under the penalty of death,’ but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths." Ezekiel 3:17-18 NLT
