    Thankful for T’s return and improvement in his condition.

    Agree with your assessment of giants and dwarves.

    Those pastors/authors should be measured by their own words. Their own preaching and writing reveal them to be two-faced at a minimum.

  2. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Great news about Trey

  3. once a cc guru says:

    We have seen the enemy… and it is us.

    Psychopaths, sociopaths, and narcissists…

    Yowza Michael, nothing like hitting the proverbial nail on the head!

  4. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    guru – yes that is us. Someone on the other thread said they just want to look at a person’s heart in worship. Jeremiah tells us about our heart.
    Mine is full of sin, deceit and cholesterol

    agreeing with above 3 comments, all
    sometimes i think we need more preaching on evil – it is insidious and we’re no match for it… the love of money grows evil fruit (one of my daughters is doing some sort of work on affordable housing and she remarked at the fat cat builders who don’t want to build housing that folks earning less than $70k could buy, there are more and quicker dollars building for the big spenders)
    God is there to help us away from sinning, but evil? We have to pray for deliverance, we’re no match – rationalizing is where the devil does his best work … IMHO

    praying

  6. Em - again says:

    well, MLD snuck a comment in on me … yes, the heart is deceitful, desperately wicked – we can’t judge, but God knows

  7. Em - again says:

    for the record someone said, “i’ve always been concerned with the heart of the worshiper far more than the form of the worship” … concern does not equate with “looking” …

    I used to work for a fairly large ministry with an international outreach. I oversaw the international projects, incuding ministry in India.

    1. There are always more ministry opportunities than there is funding. Therefore, when funding was available, I assure you projects were being accomplished. Accountability was required, both in how finances were used, and assuring that projects were accomplished. It is ludicrous to hear GFA confabulating about how funds weren’t being directed to designated projects. Seriously, it’s really not that hard to take money designated for a project in India and send the money to that project in India.

    2. Working at said ministry, I observed spin control at it’s finest.

    3. Working at said ministry, I observed how funds could be used to enhance the personal assets of the leader’s family.

    4. Working at said ministry, I observed how funds could be “borrowed” and channeled to operating costs or other expenditures. At times, but not always, this delayed ministry outreach.

  9. AA says:

    Glad Trey is home & doing well.

  10. Josh the Beloved says:

    So Michael,

    Are you saying the Lyme treatment was a total success? 🙂

  11. Michael says:

    Thank you, AA.

    Josh, he’s only been home a couple days…but he sure seems healed to me.

  12. Nonnie says:

    I’m rejoicing with you over Trey’s recovery! So thankful!

  13. Josh the Beloved says:

    Wow…That is truly amazing. I rejoice with you and your family over defeating this awful and often debilitating Lyme bacteria.

  14. Disillusioned says:

    I agree with you, Michael, that it is well past time for the men mentioned above to speak. If they have a good reason for standing by KP, then let’s hear it.

    What always blows my mind with these guys is their utter inability to recall the scripture that they’ve no doubt taught to others: “Nothing in all creation is hidden from Him to whom we must give account.”

    Nothing.

  15. Jim says:

    I was in India last week working with many former GFA pastors. No one asked questions relative to GFA but quite a few guys spoke about “being controlled” and one pastor volunteered that he was told be lie prostrate before K.P. Yohannon. He left the ministry because of that. I also head first hand about the shunning.

  16. Michael says:

    Jim,

    The people that send me reports seem to fear GFA reprisals…is that the case with the people you worked with?

  17. Jim says:

    I don’t know about that. I think there is a hesitancy to speak evil of them. I’m sure they are completely unaware that while they were receiving less than subsistence level support, GFA had several million dollars in the bank. Many pastors do the ministry on foot, and while GFA regularly solicited U.S. donors for funds for bicycles and motorcycles, they probably could have furnished all their pastors with these things.
