Lord Have Mercy Pastor Makes A "bad judgment call"?

Reader in a fall-from-grace story that landed a onetime aspiring Detroit preacher behind bars for 3½ years, the federal government wrapped up a two-year-old fraud case this month involving four men who ran a $555,000 credit card fraud ring through a church and wreaked havoc on the lives of more than 100 people whose accounts were compromised.

 Among the schemers was Baker, who, according to prosecutors and his lawyer, slipped in his faith and broke the law to make money. He did this, prosecutors said, by using a credit card terminal at his church to swipe tens of thousands of dollars in bogus transactions that steered money into his own pockets. It was, as his lawyer put it, "a bad judgment call.

  1. Miss Ann,

    This man is a common criminal and NOT a pastor. He wanted to make money off the backs of his congregation right from the start. His flock couldn't keep up with him and left.

    For the article to say he was struggling to keep his church open is a lie. If he was truly a man of God, he would have declared "my God shall supply all my need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19).

    It is evident that the real reason he opened a church, was to make a quick buck (1 Timothy 6:10).

    The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...

  2. Some are called . Some are chosen. Some called themselves. Salvation is a lifestyle not a career. He should have gotten a job like the rest of us.But he knew being a pastor was an easy way to have access to money,credit cards,and folks financial information. Folks have to stop being so gullible. Where was there spiritual discernment.He needs to be in jail he used God's house for filthy lucre dealings. SMH

  3. He truly will be able to sing. I have had some good days I have some bad days. But right now my bad days out weigh by good days. And I have nobody to complain to but myself. Cause God was good to me and the saints . But I used them . And now I am going to be somebody's sugarbaby.
