What Would Jesus Do???

"And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves." Matt 21:12.  And he found in the temple those who were selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers seated at their tables.  And he made a scourge of cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and he poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables."  John 2:15

For when Herod had John arrested, he bound him and put him in prison because of Herodias, the wife of his brother Phillip.  For John had been saying to him "It is not lawful for you to have her."  John 14:3

When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, " Is this you, you troubler of man."
I Kings 18:17

We live in a world that has forgotten Jesus, forgotten the Bible, forgotten that there is more to life than money.  We live in a world where people are daily starving, where wars and AIDS and malaria kill relentlessly.  We live in a world where TV evangelist spend millions of dollars putting on billion dollar Jesus shows for the sole purpose of increasing their wealth and stroking their personal egos. 

We live in a world where the churches are losing members because the fire for Jesus has gone out.  The passion for living a Christian life has been beat out of our children with television shows full of violence, sex and greed.  We live in a time when the church is becoming more and more irrelevant each day.

And what do the leaders of the church do?  They cover up the horrific acts of pedophile priests and make gods of TV evangelist and allow the corrupters of the faith, the ministers of our churches, to steal from the Sunday offering.

The Presbyterian Church is dying and it is dying because of the cancer of apathy and greed and the lure of technology and constant entertainment that overshadows the need to stay spiritually tuned into God and the teaching of Jesus.  Who can deny that the church is shrinking?  Who can deny that worship now more than ever is just an hour of lip service to Christ once a week.

The death of the church is coming not because the truths of Jesus are no longer true but because the leaders of the church have lost their fire, their passion.  The cancer of apathy and greed is withering the Presbyterian Church because corrupt lying ministers like Joe Delgatto at Heights Presbyterian Church in Houston and his counterparts in the Catholic Church are protected by a bureaucracy that is all about money and power and virtually nothing about Jesus and his teachings.

Joe Delgatto was asked by a dying member of Heights Presbyterian Church to come and visit her.  Joe said he had to prepare for a vacation several weeks away but he would be glad to visit with her over the telephone.  The following week the lady died.  This is in a church where the active membership is barely 50 people.

Joe Delgatto, proudly told the judge of the 280th District Court that he had committed the church to a corrupt $4.7 million HUD project without the approval of the session, the Presbytery or the congregation.  The response of the Presbytery: so what?

The same Joe Delgatto who recently gazed intently on one of the members of the church nursing her baby.  A man who told the whole congregation that one of the members was addicted to pornography.

This is a man who makes more money than the church collects in pledges.  This is a man who refuses to seek out new members.  A man who within five minutes of receiving his pay check is at the local bank depositing his unearned booty.

This is a man who is so closely linked to one of the female members of the congregation that when you ask him anything  about church business he smiles and says he will have to ask Patty.  A woman who has destroyed virtually all the church memorials to satisfy her insatiable desire for control and domination.

Some of you church leaders have suggested that I pray and let God take care of things.  How naive.  How apathetic. 

Thirty-five complaints and accusations were sent up to the Presbytery of New Covenant four months ago.  Nothing has been done.  Complaints per the Book of Order have gone up to the Synod of the Sun.  All to no avail.  Not a single investigation.  No committees have been formed per the Book of Order.  Nothing has been done.

Now I hear from some of you leaders? to let the administrative bodies take care of the problem.  I hear that the problem is a Texas problem.  And I wonder how a cancer growing in the body of the Presbyterian Church is not the problem of the whole church.  Cancer kills. Apathy terminates. 

The church is dying and it is because every single church bureaucrat and most of the ministry has lost its fire, its passion for Jesus.  The church is dying because of a lack of leadership and dying twice as fast because the leadership that does exists is stealing the church assets as fast as they can.  Stealing money, breaching their duty to minister to society, selectively enforcing the Book of Order.  And then there are the apathetic ones who just don't care anymore.

Yes, I am a ranter and raver.  Yet I am confrontational and combative.  Yes, I have no fear of being called foolish and stupid and out of touch as well as World Piss.

Yet the truth is still the truth.  And the truth is that what is happening at Heights Church and at the Presbytery of New Covenant and at the Synod of the Sun is happening all over America in the Presbyterian Church.  What is happening is that the cancer of corruption and apathy are failing to bring in new members failing to teach the words of Jesus that are needed now more than any time in history?

The current leaders of the Presbyterian Church are little more than zombies living out their inconsequential lives in their eight to five ministries. 

What would happen if Jesus returned today?  He would be rejected because he would surely fire virtually every single minister and church bureaucrat who are presently making a living off the dying carcass of the church.

Mike Cole of the Presbytery of New Covenant is an abomination to Christ.  His refusal to build the church membership and his determination to make the churches under his jurisdiction exclusive clubs of corrupt leaders of the few who still believe in the church of their youth, the teachings of their parents and the truths of Jesus.

No one who believes in Jesus can sit back and allow the cancer of Mike Cole, and Doug Harper, and Joe Delgatto continue to choke the remaining life out of the Presbyterian Church. 

I have looked at the web pages of all the Presbyteries and all the Synods as well as the General Assembly and I have seen the faces of the church leadership.  And I must admit that what I see is a bunch of zombies whose fire and passion was long ago extinguished.  I see people who are running the church who have been overcome by the great change of the last 50 years.  People who have been numbed by all the killing and corruption in society and the materialism that is about to choke the transcendent message of Jesus and God out of every human being on the earth.

There is no leadership in the Presbyterian Church.  There are just a bunch of bureaucrats who see their role as stewards of a legacy of now valuable real estate to be plundered for the bureaucrats who give only lip service to Jesus so they can continue to draw the money that the believers continue to place in their corrupt hands.

Let those who have eyes see and those who have ears hear.

The Presbyterian Church is in crisis because the likes of Joe Delgatto, Mike Cole and Doug Harper are in positions of power.  They believe that Jesus is not watching. They believe that their undeniable determination to keep me from becoming a member and their trying to break my mother's determination to hold them accountable is not being considered by Jesus.  How foolish these pathetic men of lies are. 

The time is soon coming when things will be made right.  The time is soon coming when the unmistakable hand of Jesus will call these dark souls to account for their lies and their corruption and their deliberate destruction of the church.

I have just received a fax allegedly from Joe Delgatto regarding his removing my mother as trustee at the request of the illegal administrative commission.  The letter was not written by Joe Delgatto because as a writer and attorney I know his style.  This letter was written by someone with more education that Mr. Delgatto. 

I find it interesting that the administrative commission has targeted Joe to sign off on their dirty work.  My mother was told by the commission to drop her lawsuit or else.  Well, the or else is her removal as trustee. This is in an effort to not only try to break her spirit but also to clear the last obstacle they have to stealing the rest of the church monies and to bankrupt the church.  Well they have a surprise coming.

No one is going to convince me that sane people set up a budget which spends over a hundred thousand dollars more than the church takes in and expects that the church will survive. 

The illegal administrative commission formed by the Presbytery of New Covenant and endorsed by the Synod of the Sun continues in its evil and corrupt ways honestly believing that Jesus has no interest in their acts of bad faith. 

Jesus is curious.  The call has been made.  The light has been turned on and the truth has been spoken.  Now we will see who Christ calls to stand up for his church and we will also clearly see those who have embraced Satan by their apathy and by their support of all that is unchristian and an abomination to Christ.

"Answer me. O Lord, answer me, that this people may know that you have turned their heart back again.  Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt offering and the wood and the stones and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.  When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces, and they said, The Lord, He is God, the Lord, He is God.  Then Elijah said to them, Seize the prophets of Baal, do not let one of them escape.  So they seized them, and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon and slew them there.  I Kings 18:37  SO IT IS WRITTEN, SO LET IT BE.

You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again?  It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.  Matt 5:13.  Therefore, salt is good, but if salt has become tasteless, with what will it be seasoned?  It is useless either for the soil or for the manure pile.  It is thrown out.  He who has ears to hear, let him hear."  Luke 14:34.

In Jesus name,




How can we manifest peace on earth if we do not include everyone (all races, all nations, all religions, both sexes) in our vision of Peace?
