Post Tough times in Tennessee. ngcognews
The word is out! The Tennessee overseer is facing both ecclesiastical and civil charges for unbecoming conduct, including bullying, lying, and bribery. These charges stem from his actions in taking possession of the Brainerd COG property, which had been under the leadership of a single family for over four decades. The church was financially stable, up-to-date on all payments, and had just finished a renovation project.

The overseer attempted to coerce the pastor into handing over the property, which was valued at over 9 million dollars, to an Indian Church by falsely claiming they had substantial funds. He even went as far as offering the pastor a bribe of up to $300,000 personally to persuade his congregation to agree to the transfer. Bullying tactics seem to be his preferred method of operation, and there have been numerous victims of his actions. SMH!

What? GOing on in TN? I wonder who is GOing to TN. This makes a lot of sense if you know the plan and the current So Suddenly things are clear about what allegedly GOing on. Only the one GOing can make things appear correct.

What does "the word is out" mean? Is there any source that can substantiate these claims? With all due respect to you, this is your first post on this board, and you are posting from a pen name. Where can this be corroborated?

Agreed.

There needs to be something backing this up.

Anyway, give a reference, that is pretty damaging without some roots.
Okay I checked the overseer is Bishop [name removed by the Admin]. I could not find anything what so ever on google negative.

Not saying there isn't, just that it isn't loud enough to get the ears of those reporters who love negative about any minister... I am definitely glad there was nothing glaring... concerning the overseer.

Wow.

How is the same overseer in the middle of all of these questionable issues?

The question now is why is it suspected that the general may be going to TN? I have serious question as to why. Just like charges were brought to Johnson but utterly ignored in other cases… just makes you think why was there a picking and choosing on who to protect and who to charge. Hope there isn’t any unfinished business.

Half dozen posts about the TJ case were also circulating without corroboration on the actual charges. Having used this platform to discuss much more unimportant topics before, he himself was not strong enough to come here and clarify.

The door was open for speculations by HQ's mass email to every licensed minister, but no certain outcome was reported following. Leaving many cog ministers wondering, is it still OK to preach against the sin of homosexuality in our churches?

Especially after the 2 tallest voting Members sided with the accusation...

Man, get this pile of PLEASE SELECT ANOTHER WORD that you keep shoveling out of here.

I knew that is what you were doing with all the old posts you were digging up.

You are mad that you're carefully laid plans to ruin Travis failed.

You are the only one saying two people voted against Travis. That is pure conjecture to the rest of us. Were you the guy counting the votes? No one else has the information you seem to say that you know.

Travis is the only one telling us the truth the whole time - and you come on here pretending the opposite.

This is low, even for you.

The only thing I can think of is the movie Toy Story:

"You are a sad strange little man - and you have my pity." - Buzz Lightyear
