The following was received from an anonymous reader: Why do the people of Calvary hide from the truth? Why do they repeat gossip they have heard from the pastors without talking directly to the individuals involved? Why can a pastor say someone is in sin and has lied and so their family can be taken away, but the same idea does not exist for themselves. If they sin and someone accuses them of lying, do they have their families taken away? Plenty of people have been saying Pastor Scott has sinned and lied. Why is his wife and family not taken away from him? If that is even the godly thing to do? Double standards? Are pastors untouchable, like God himself? No.They are just men, to be judged at a higher standard of conduct because of the position of trust they occupy. To be watched closely and expected to be above blame and reproach, within and without the Church. Pastor Scott and his pastors have obviously failed that simple test. They have become a reproach to all that is pure and good and honorable and holy. The innuendo and intrigue surrounding Calvary Temple has God-fearing people stunned. And some are getting fed up with it. Righteously angry. Ready to do something, alongside the praying they have been doing for years. Whether Pastor Scott is guilty of the open allegations exposed by men of integrity via their articles on their blogs, is something outside pastors should investigate. Obviously the pastors inside Calvary are compromised, because Pastor Scott holds their homes, and paychecks, and ultimately their wives and reputations in his hands. As he has destroyed so many people already, he undoubtedly will try to defame them IF they speak publicly. Pastor Richard Miller is a case in point. He left Calvary Temple saying he could no longer support what Pastor Scott was doing. He was marked a heretic, and refused to be allowed to see his son and his grandchildren. Months later, after a meeting set up by his son [a pastor under Pastor Scott himself], he says he has agreed to disagree with Pastor Scott, while Pastor Scott announces in Calvary Temple that Pastor Miller 'repented'. This is a statement that Pastor Miller denied empatically, that he had nothing to repent of and it was not true. He expressed this sentiment with several individuals. However, he would not call Pastor Scott out on such a blatant lie, and was restored to fellowship with his son and grandchildren. Something smells fishy here. Months later, an anonymous tip came in via Calvary Temple member, that Pastor Miller's legal representative was hired and paid for by Pastor Scott regarding the IRS investigation into Calvary Temple. Hmmmm, not just fishy, more like a bunch of dead fish. -anonymous reader-
