Members Locked Out Of Church On Easter

Church Members Say Reason Is Dispute Over Pastor, Financial Books.During one of the holiest weeks on the calendar, members of the St. Johns Baptist Church downtown Jacksonville Fl said they aren't being allowed into their home away from home because they've been locked out.
Members said a church dispute has turned into an empty house of worship, which means they'll be forced to hold their Easter service outside.  Story here!

  1. Wow! Well, maybe I should say I am not surprised. This type of story is nothing new. Power struggles inside the church has gone on since the beginning of time. To a large degree, that's why we have different religions and branch-off churches. I am sure that everyone reading this post has seen a church split because of differing opinions. Generally it's about finances or the pastor. I have persoanlly witnessed violence right outside the church... that started inside the church. On another occasion, the church had to take the pastor to court to retrieve church funds.

    The church bylaws should outline who can do what. Yet, in my opinion, locking the doors is not the solution.

  3. And that's all I can do as well. Sad, especially at the time of our triumph in Christ! This season! Oh Lord. Sigh!

  4. I missed this one. Gotta get my head out of the sand. But controversies like this are what cause people to become cynical about religion. I think perhaps this could have been handled a bit better.

  5. this is why people are leaving the church in droves. today the church nolonger seem to be a place of hope and spiritual feeding. with ATMS being installed and pastors asking for W-2 forms,the church seem to be nothing more than a moneymaking facility. i know of folks like myself who are becomming disillusioned with the church and becomming more spiritual and worshiping and prasisng the CREATOR within.
