I,too, am a former member of this organized farce operating until the title of "church". The crap being delivered from the pulpit is so deep that you need boots to wade through it and out the door. What amazes me is how you have embezzlement, pimpin', adultery, children born to married lovers, poor money management, lies, deceit, fraudulent credit card use, arrogance, rudeness, and downright ungodliness going on and the lambs are still being led to the slaughter. Wake up, people! Hannibal the Cannibal is afoot! You are to follow your leaders AS THEY FOLLOW CHRIST . . . . when you see the Holy Spirit lean over and tell Jesus it's time to go . . . WHAT are YOU waiting for?
What happened to the 1.1 MILLION DOLLARS that Alton Trimble SAID we had saved up?? We gave our tithes, Building Fund pledges, tax refunds and some even went into their retirement plans and gave. We served tirelessly from 6 a.m. until the wee hours of the night, every night. All because we believed the Black Jim Jones. Better watch your communion wine.
And WHY is it that the politicians who have no problem coming to the church once a year in an ELECTION year . . . . WHY is it THEY don't seem to know what's going on? Maxine Waters, Bernard Parks and nearly every prominent politician in Carson has, at one time or another, graced that disgraced platform called a pulpit at Glory Christian Fellowship, International . . . aka GCFI.
The body count is RISING. The accountants have jumped shipped as well as nearly everyone who used to work in the main office. Can you say "Glory-Gate"? And we thought Watergate was bad! All the big-time givers (doctors AND lawyers) have closed their designer checkbooks. And yet ~ no governmental agency is looking into the financial records of this religious entity. WHERE oh where is the IRS when you actually WANT to see them?
They say that Rome wasn't built in a day . . . . but it DID get built. The only thing we've ever seen on the lot adjacent to the Super K-Mart is WEEDS . . . and lots of them! Where's the youth center? Where are the jobs for those that need them? Where are the training opportunities? Where's the church? Where's the MONEY???? And yet, the pastor owns TWO very nice homes in exclusive areas, owns nice cars, can afford private schools for the children and so many other luxuries. Yet, staffers have taken pay cuts. Hmmmmm . . . . if it smells like crap . . . . it must BE crap.
This ministry has tarnished the Christian faith. How many souls have been disillusioned, led astray, deceived? How many people have given above and beyond what they could really afford to support this ministry . . . . only to have nothing but hurt and disappointment?
Alton Trimble once had a powerful message that offered hope and encouragement. His proud, arrogant, deceitful spirit has become his downfall. "Repent" and "Accountability" are not in his vocabulary. After 7 or 8 years of the Building Fund, the only thing that's been broken is promises because it certainly isn't the ground.
