No Repentance Necessary…Potters Field Starts The Comeback
According to sources, , Mike and Pam Rozelle (without a trace of repentance or reparations) are trying to woo back interns and are launching two “for profit” Mudman burger restaurants in Whitefish, Montana.
There has been no response to the stories of the Potters Field Survivors posted here alleging spiritual and emotional abuse.
Despite this cowardly, ungodly, and unbiblical way of treating people, they intend to move forward with rebuilding their “ministry”.
Why would anyone who had been harmed by the (allegedly) cultish actions of Christian leadership return?
It has been suggested that one of the reasons is that as part of the interns “training” they were expected to divulge their deepest and most sinful thoughts and actions to the leadership.
These “confessions” then become the means for leadership to control them, the leaders having set themselves up as being more spiritual and able to guide the wanton sinner to holiness.
The possibility of spiritual extortion is present.
As a reminder to donors…none of the actions biblically necessary to restore Mike and Pam Rozelle have been taken by them.
Don McClure, the Calvary Chapel Association, and Rob McCoy have said that they can no longer support them.
The questions surrounding former board member Roger Gales and inappropriate actions toward interns have not been answered.
There has been no formal, legal audit of the ministry.
Review these sources of information;
There needs to be a public and complete reckoning of all these accusations…these interns are the future of the church and deserve no less than our best.
I hope people are smart enough and pray for God’s wisdom so they don’t fall prey to these wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing. This couple needs to be accountable for all the harm they have caused, lives they have destroyed, and for the misuse of money and funds. A ministry can only survive when supported. At this point in time, this couple doesn’t need people “supporting” their “ministry”.
Why are the authorities not following up on the allegations? Local authorities should be made aware regarding a lot of the issues: gun brandishing, not allowing contact with family via phone, etc. Not allowing interns to return home without consequences. The state labor board should be made aware of the labor laws that were ignored. The IRS should be looking into their ministry financial statements. Can a class action lawsuit be started? Churches that sent out interns despite the rumors should be help accountable as well.
Imaginary friends in the sky created by the Romans to control the masses is still effective on a society that by now should have forgotten about fake gods. Oh…people still fear death so I guess they need some comfort still. Sad humans living in the bronze age still.
Nicholai, your point is well taken… people do tend to manufacture higher powers – unseen ones. We do it for a myriad of reasons – all over the planet. Now we have “smart” people looking for.alien beings from other galaxies… Stands to reason, doesn’t it? Ummm … ?
That said, i subscribe to the statement (in the Book) that the heavens (sun, moon, stars and beyond) declare the glory of A God – a Creator. And He (the Triunity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit) has left us with a variety of undeniable witnesses down through history and a great Book of instruction and revelation.
It is a test – of wisdom and humility? Maybe…. Each of us, however, accepts or rejects on our own. 😇. Take your choice, but think carefully 🙏
Seenitall, Good questions! ! ! IMNSHO
What’s sad is that there are still those who believe everything that is, in its fantastically complex and interdependent glory, arose from fundamental particles and forces which themselves did not exist before a fundamental quantum vacuum fluctuation.
I think justice true justice is only By God.
Maybe…but we’re commanded through the Scriptures to “do justice”.
I’ve written this on FB but I encourage all who are impacted by PFM to seek professional guidance to heal. Support groups, community resources and professional counseling are necessary in the healing process. I’ve had similar situations at well known corporate jobs and fortune 8 companies. Healing and processing these emotions is critical as it is still very raw.
