Attention Pastors And Church Leaders: The Congregants Are Not Yours To Do With As You Wish.
Readers, I wonder how many time this pastor's sermons were about the same sin that he was committing? Did he get his congregation stirred up against gays or abortions, but sneaked right away after the sermon was over with members from his "flock"? He ought to be ashamed of himself, and the congregation of the church should start to have a serious conversation about the ethics of their staff, including the preacher.
Shocking developments with the City of God church near Detroit. This really broke my heart....this could've & should've been avoided. Unfortunately, men and women of God are just men and women. They can put their God "mask" on for the crowds, but if they are not totally committed to their "calling" or vocation, then they should step down and seek God for themselves first and foremost.
According to social media, City of God Church, Pastor Keon Allison shot and killed one of it faithful church member Deante Smith in church after being confronted by Smith with allegations of having sex with Smith's wife. Deante revealed on Facebook that his wife had been cheating with Pastor Allison and that at least some of his fellow church members were aware of the affair. Deante Smith's aunt Darcel Ward said her nephew confided in her that Pastor Keon Allison's wife told him her husband was sleeping with his wife, and his whole family encouraged him to get a divorce, but he struggled because of his feelings for his wife and his faith.
Ward said her nephew told her that his wife had a miscarriage and it was shortly after his wife's miscarriage that he learned she had been unfaithful. (Another version of the story is that Smith's wife allegedly had an abortion, which was paid for by the Pastor Allison). "Deante got a knock on his door from the pastor's wife coming to tell him that her husband had sexual affairs with his wife. That's how he found out," said Ward, who added that his mind was not the same afterwards. Let's demand justice for Deante Smith.
