    this was the church that this women attended that stoned most of her children to death >>>http://www.biblenews1.com/history3/20030512.htm

    i am very suspect of some of the more charismatic assembly's the doctrine and the unregenerate person will do these types of religious works.

    I think that is a little inappropriate suggestion.

    How many members of the Ku Klux Klan have been members of Baptist Churches?

    Think we'll move this to Other Religions and let some Assemblies members answer these comments.

    Could we be any more rude?

    Christians sometimes fail terribly in all denominations. The Devil is not confined to the Lake of Fire yet. This evil one still tempts all Christian believers at our weakest point.

    ... and Methodist, Presbyterian, and Episcopal? Let's be honest here and acknowledge that KKK members are and have been found throughout various churches and levels of society here in the U.S. I agree that the comment was inappropriate. However, you have no point with the KKK thing. Massdak's and DD's real points have to do with questionable Charismatic doctrines (and no, I'm not saying that Charismatic Churches teach their people to kill their kids). However, Baptist doctrine has never instructed anyone to hate someone else. Thus, your line of argumentation is not valid.

    I was pastoring an SBC church where the deacons for over 20 years approved of the local Mormon bishop preaching at local Christian events. The church I pastored grew from 90 to over 220. More people came to Christ in such a short time than they had ever seen in its entire 60 year history. But the deacons kept dogging me constantly about the littlest of things that did not even matter. Later they asked me to resign. Satan had gotten ahold of some of them and they persuaded the others to follow. During that time it was a local Pentecostal pastor that stood against them and with me to correct them and to tell them that what they were doing was wrong. The local or state asociation would even come to help me. But a local pastor did. I did not agree with some of his doctrine but he was a man of God who did his best to stand for what is right.

    I for one, feel that the comments made about the KKK were completely appropriate and beneficial.

    I have been to a few Assemblies of God churches in my day, and next to Baptist, it is definately where I would chose to go. They have a heart for God like none I had ever seen.

    I have also been to a few IFB churches that I wouldnt go back to if they paid me to, because ALL that I heard out of the pulpit was hate speech..

    Neither has AG doctrine.

    Imagine how heartbroken the pastor of this AG church in Tyler is, especially knowing a family member did this horrendous crime! What an embarrassment for that local body! What a black mark on the Name of Jesus!

    Folks, where is our Christian compassion and love towards other members of the Body of Christ? I see very little of it coming from some of the Baptists on here and it is shameful. There are numerous atrocities that have been committed by Baptists, including Baptist pastors, and some of those threads are even archived on this board! Because a Baptist commits murder, molests children, abuses children, does that mean it is because of Baptist doctrine?

    I think not! Rather than pointing fingers, we should all take pause and reflect on atrocities committed in the Name of Jesus.

    I challenge someone to find a doctrine on the AG web site that promotes hate or murder.

    http://www.ag.org

    Emily, I agree with your comments wholeheartedly.

    Can we be anymore hateful, judgmental, and rude on this board? What a shining witness for Jesus Christ here. [sarcasm intended]

    The reality check is that there will be people of MANY denominations in Heaven, Folks, not just some who call themselves Baptist.

    I must defend the AOG churches as well. I have attended different ones in the past and have found them to be caring and compassionate.

    The church cannot be held accountable for what one member does.

    I am sure she was not taught that at church.

    Working for Jesus,

    The article gives NO follow on information...

    We do not know what the Pastor or denominations 'actual' response was...

    As for Charismatics (including Assemblies of God people) being insane?

    Thank GOD we *are* a peculiar people!!! :D

    And.... It takes one to know one! [​IMG]

    First, though, the A/G did not and does not condone this action. Like Andrea this woman was obviously very 'disturbed'.

    The pastor being related must feel a *very* deep sense of failure over this. I know I would.

    Now, don't get me wrong, there *are* some *very* strange 'birds' in all denominations.

    To our shame Jim Jones, Jim Bakker, and Jimmy Swaggert were all originally A/G pastors who went off the deep end.

    But, I am sure, if *you* Baptists are painfully honest *you've* had *your* share of not so spectacular members?

    To be fair we are called to 'reconcile' one to another...

    Instead of placing an article in an attempt to destroy and tear down fellow believers in the Name of Jesus Christ God's Son, Savior...

    Why not post in an attempt to garner prayer for the family, the church, and the community?

    Your heart is revealed my the 'tone' of your actions?
