Does anyone know why so many people are leaving this church? They had planned an addition, but that has been stopped.

Oh no, not another freaking Church thread!! You people amaze me trying to get crap started on the internet. I bet you can't wait till a name gets dropped and people start the nasty comments and gossip about this one or that one..what wonderful Christian people we have around here...oops, I mean "fake" Christian people.

If I know people around here, they will not disappoint.

Little sweet Jessica, hope you are proud of yourself trying to start drama and discord.

I don't think anyone is trying to start ANYTHING! I do think people wonder what is wrong when people leave a church, in droves.

I am the pastor. We have not lost but a handful and gained many in the church. The reason for building delay is that the state wants the church to put in a large sprinkler system worth many thousands of dollars and and a smoke system worth a lot as well. This was in addition to the quoted price for expansion .
By the way as of yet have I bullied anyone or challenged anyone to a school yard brawl. I pray I have not lied to anyone intentional and as of yet I do not have the money to retire. Give me about thirty years and I can draw ss.
What I do know is that many have been saved lately and I give all the glory to Jesus Christ. And if anyone reading this needs to call on The Lord in salvation you can do so by reading Romans 10:13 and praying a sinners pray. May God bless you!

Pastor dont get caught up in this.Dont have to read much to see the devils hard at work here. Topix could be really something good to help people but the devil allways finds someone to do his dirty work.Maybe if we dont feed the o dog he will go away.

I've only been to this church once, but from what I've seen it's a very nice church, the pastor is nice, everyone there is nice. People leave churches for many reasons, some people move, some people stop going to church altogether, and some people prefer different styles of churches and preaching, so instead of starting threads that are sure to start rumors, perhaps you should go to this church and judge for yourself what you think of it

I do know that the Odom Family has started attending there, and everywhere they go, there is nothing but TROUBLE, TROUBLE, AND MORE TROUBLE. They have been in about every church in Elizabethton and Johnson City too. They cannot stay long at any of them.
Which Odom family ? The one I know are the kindest people you could ever meet !

And you gossiping about people doesn't make you a troublemaker, now does it??

DELAY!?? What are you talking about? The church is not planning to expand, period. I hear the brick is being laid back that was taken off for the expansion, and that the pavement that was taken up will have to be replaced as well. I understand that the brick, and pavement work, will put the church in the "red". I KNOW for an absolute fact that you HAVE bullied church members, and run off several families whose home church was Zion. You would think the incompetence in going into an expansion BACKWARDS, OR the loss of good families would either one be reason for dismissal. Have a great day!

No more of a trouble-maker than anyone else here, I believe that you are here also, What does that make you? An little Angel with little Golden Wings that has a mighty dirty little face. Hard to Gossip, when it is the truth. The Church Members need to check at other Churches and find out the real story. Talk to Steve Burleson, he knows the bunch real well.

First of all, I know nothing about this Church..never been there.

But I will say this and then I'm out of here. People like you and that Ray who posted above are the MAIN reason I quit going to church a few years ago and will never go again..especially a Baptist Church of any kind.

I have never been involved in any of the drama at Churches, but I sure have heard about it..and NO MORE... I am done!!!

I believe that less than 30% of the people at Churches in this "Bible Belt" are truly saved or even understand what it means. YOu all show up at Church just to be seen and put on the act, and then..the minute you walk out the door, you do nothing but gossip, criticize and tear people down..I've seen it over and over and over and NO MORE!! All you have to do is look at how many people are reading topix where it shows the count and then see how much higher it goes after Church lets out on Sundays.

You could be spending your time trying to make a positive difference in the World, but you would rather spend it finding fault with others. You are all a sham or you would be doing something different other than being on a horrible forum like topix.

And if you would take any information you read about ANYBODY on topix as reliable, you are a stupid, ignorant person. Period.

Thank you for confirming my belief about all of the "fake" Christians in this area... I am right.

I suggest you people learn about "true" salavation before it is too late and you are left behind. People who have truly been saved feel compelled to help people, not hurt them..even if it they have hurt you..otherwise, you have never truly been saved.

You really need to spend more time reading your Bible and not topix. I am only here to check for abusive posts and report them. I despise this site and will do anything I can to help get it taken down.

I have heard from reliable sources that this pastor's wife tried to fight a staff member, in God's House. The pastor's child had misbehaved, and the staff member called the child down, and both the pastor & the wife took the side of the child who was totally wrong in what she did. The children will tell you to your face that they can do anything they wish. Some of the 5 children are not very well behaved. The pastor HAD to do an apology service recently, and will have to go apologize to the people who have left the church because of his behavior. I imagine this was required in order for him to keep his JOB! It is my honest belief that people who are looking for a church need to be aware of the leadership.

That is as good of a excuse as any, trying to blame someone that you don't even know for the reason that you don't attend church. Just Remember, that somebody that you don't know will not have to give an account for your crutch, Also I am sure that your excuse will not be good enough, that has kept you from Entering God's House.
