    Good post, Michael, good post
    I wonder at these exploiters – making their living exploiting the Faith at others expense
    One thing seems clear, though… they are not sons of God as they have no fear of Him
    They will, but it probably will come too late – sorrowful fact
    Do we pray for their souls?

    Em,

    I don’t.
    I pray for those abused and don’t care if the leaders split he’ll wide open.
    That’s on them…they claimed to be the spiritual leaders.

    God has noticed.

    I am at a point where I can’t even consider these abusers people of God. I wouldn’t fellowship with them.

    Problem is, the church had not taught the whole counsel of God and many Christians apparently don’t read their bibles or seek the truth before God.

    If we allow evil, evil will prevail. Apparently a lot of Christians real don’t know what evil is.

    I pray every day that God will wake up his people who are sleeping and get them of their butts.

    Come on, isn’t the line that the church doesn’t ever do anything a bit cynical?

    You HAVE TO know stories of Christians and churches who’ve properly exercised church discipline, don’t you?

    I appreciate your zeal though

    Jtk:

    I wrote a rambling comment fuel by the frustration with our church institutions and then, before hitting send, reread your post.

    “You HAVE TO know stories of Christians and churches who’ve properly exercised church discipline, don’t you?”

    I hit delete and started over.

    Yes there are Christians and churches doing the work you mentioned. Let me point one out.

    I don’t know much about his personal life nor the church he is a part of, but this man and his productions are a light.

    Many might think his films are a bit corny and sappy at times, but how does someone who loves Jesus show, demonstrate and teach how to live it out? His films are a worthy light in the darkness of the men and women whom Michael is writing about.

    Thank you Jtk, you helped me this morning!

    Ezekiel 8 and 34…

  8. Michael says:

    Jtk,

    Yes, a few have exercised church discipline properly.
    However , the systemic issues haven’t changed at all in the last 20 years.
    If anything, things are worse than when I started.

    You mean the church that threatened anybody who worked on a different type of Christian movie?

    Not a great example in my books…

  10. MM says:

    Okay Steve, the enemy is in us then and I’m sure you will find fault with all ministries, including PP.

    I read your post and frankly it tells me very little about the situation or the actual and factual comments which were made amongst the parties.

    Jtk asked a legitimate question and all you can do is find fault, so please post the ministry you find is a golden example of truth and righteousness. The enemy is within.

    “…what so ever is… think on these things.”

    “Thank you Jtk, you helped me this morning!”

    Literally smiled out loud. Thanks.
