Where Credit is Due

The owner of one of the phtographs I “acquired” through Google actually saw the photograph and left a comment on the site.

Here’s the picture I used in talking about starving and abused church members:

Here’s how he is doing now:

And here’s the comment she left on P-P.org

 I was excited to see that you have used my photo in your post. He’s usually used in animal related things (the one that led me to you is a petition for dog-fighting), but I can see why he was used here. He’s actually a fairly famous guy. His story and his photos have been in a few magazines and featured on tons of websites. Someone used the photo, and used you as the photo credit (even though you don’t own the photo and have used it just as they did, likely from a Google search) and thus I came across your page. If you’re interested, his name is Tad. He has nearly 9k fans on Facebook and even has his own charity/foundation.

And here is where you get more pictures of Tad.  You can even ask the owner about contributing to the charity he (Tad) runs.

I love it when a story ends well.  I can only hope the poor creatures trapped in abusive churces end up as well off.

    What a good looking poochie! 😦 I really miss having a dog. The pee wee squeakers are okay but that’s a DOG.

    Any Preacher that tries to draw influence to himself or a ambitious agenda contrary to chasing after GOD’s heart and GOD’s Kingdom Agenda is a Pimp! Not just those (or perhaps not at all them who have been labeled by some to be) who are openly labeled because they experience personal material comforts.

    There are people that hold congregations hostage under a dead form of leadership, leading the people nowhere in particular, I consider these to pimp the people for their lust to remain in-charge as much as those who pimp for material gain.

    Churches are starving for revelation as much as they are starving to not be overly taxed!

    Dear Sir,

    I came across your website searching for apostate teaching in the pulpit. I am really concerned after an interesting speaker by the name of Bishop Ulmer came to church and spoke about a “forgotten baptism.” I have never heard of this and it seems like my pastor agreed with this “unknown forgotten teaching.” I believe this teaching is blasphemous.

    There was not one word about the true gospel of Christ and Him crucified and Christ Resurrected. At 3:26 Bishop Ulmer explains the forgotten baptism. At 7:45 he explains that we are baptized into our leader in the spirit realm. At 40:10 he gets even more weird holding both pastors hands up saying Pastor Philip is our anointed Moses. Am I missing something here or does this sound completely blasphemous?

    Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCRsN7GtDGg&list=UUYi1TdCi6_Uhqr84S2pG-AA

    Thank you for any help you can give me with this.

    (MN: The best advice I can offer at this point is that you get out of that church. If the leaders there didn’t have a problem with Ulmer [never mind the forgotten baptism], they have proven they are not competent sub-shepherds. One of the primary purposes of an elder is to defend you from wolves like Ulmer, not bring the wolves in among the flock. Ulmer is poison. He has been for years, since before he wrote “A New Thing” years ago. Run away as fast as you can. And don’t look back. )

    (MN: NO, you are not missing something. You should stay as far from this man as possible. He is, for the most part, a Word of Faith heretic.)

    I’m growing more and more frustrated with so-called churches and men who don’t know enough about the word of God, blustering and bluffing their way every Sunday through weak, watered down, non-biblical “sermons.” As for me, this part of the church has left the building. I’ve been searching for 2 years and all I find is incompetence messages and false doctrine. One church building has a pastor who brings his sermons into the pulpit in a written out format and he stands up there and reads word for word, the entire stuff he’s written; sometimes 3 or 4 sheets of the “speech” without looking up from the pages, because he may have downloaded a copy of a sermon and has to read it like it’s a speech. Seems as though he never studied or understood what he’s brought to the pulpit, so he just reads. Very boring!

    Another “pastor” allowed two families of small children to “join the church” and told the congregaton, “Y’all know why they came up here, so I’m going to baptize them next Sunday.” He never tried to determine if any of the children even knew anything about Jesus. They were pushed up front by their grandmother; and this particular Sunday this pastor didn’t even mention Jesus in his sermon. He was bragging about how he had gotten blessed to have gotten the church building free from some man and told the entire story of his good fortune but never once mentioned Jesus in his narration of how fortunate he was in getting the church building free! I assume he felt getting the free church was more important than the death, buriel and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    Really, really miss your posts. They have been invaluable in keeping my pastor husband and me informed. I pray that your family is blessed richly for your service to the Lord.
