re: Former Christian school head pleads guilty to indecent behavior
Apostolic churches are a branch of pentecostalism. Apostolic Tabernacle is probably the name of the church this school is affiliated with.

re: Former Christian school head pleads guilty to indecent behavior

What I will say is that this church is behind the old gas station ephedrine pills “go go juice”. It was huge back before they figured out that ephedrine is bad for you. Most of the congregation worked for them and the story goes that the majority of the profits were tithed. You won’t find couch’s name on the docs, but if you could follow the money trail my guess is that is where it would end up.

Here is at a court case of the “healthworks” guys going after him in a lawsuit over “back tithing” This was going in after the ephedrine deal blew up and the company wasn’t making the gobs of cash anymore.

LINK

Guess what? The church’s parking their airplane in their hanger for free was part of the argument. What does that little church need an airplane for?

There is still a “health supplement” store remaining there. That deal pretty much dried up once ephedrine was outlawed.

There was a death out there in the 90’s. Guy burned to death. Supposedly they were trying to pray healing instead of taking him to the hospital. Story was that they tried to scrub the devil off him but they got his skin off instead.

Prima nocta is rumored to still be alive and well out there.

It was also common knowledge that the parishioners had their paychecks go straight to the church and their allowance was given back to them.

All of this is purely rumors and I don’t know any of it to be true, personally. But it wouldn’t take much research to verify some of it.

Nice try. But no. Pedophiles do. Putting a mouse in a cookie jar doesn't turn it into a cookie. A pedophile in a Christian school isn't a Christian.

Pedophiles carefully manage their circumstances, even their careers and/or volunteer work to position themselves around their prey. They groom adults, parents, guardians to view them as likable, valuable, and trustworthy. They likewise select and groom their victims in the same way.

The methods for screening people with access to children needs to go beyond criminal background checks and incorporate basic profiling and methods which dramatically eliminate situations where children can be isolated and where adults are alone with children.

Speaking in tongues.....


I have read the parts of the Bible about the Pentecost, and I think those people are missing the boat.

The gift of tongues isn't about speaking some jibber-jabber language that no one understands. It's about being able to speak and understand real foreign languages in a useful way. Like, maybe you're a French speaker but you get touched by the Holy Spirit and you can temporarily speak English... probably so you can share the Gospel with someone.

LoL, No
quote:

1 Cor 14:2 For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.

quote:

On the basis of linguistic analysis, speaking in tongues is "phonologically structured human utterance, believed by some to be a real language but bearing no systematic resemblance to any natural language, living or dead".

It's been witnessed and reported previously.
quote:

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
Acts Chapter 2 verses 4-13

That sounds like an accurate description of what most people who claim to speak in tongues are doing, and I think Paul was accurately documenting the fact that such things were done in the earliest days of Christianity.

However, I still do not understand how such a thing is a gift of the Holy Spirit. Outside of Mormonism, perhaps, the all-powerful god of Christianity does not require obfuscation (secret handshakes, decoder rings, unknown languages, etc.) The gift is the revelation of divine knowledge, and shining that up with a bunch of Hoo Baba Kandas does nothing good.
