Today's Court Update

Today in court, they requested a pre-trial conference for March 19th.

There were a couple of brave people there today that spoke with the news media. In their own words, they were shocked, sick and-dis heartened to hear the allegations against their Pastor. They came to seek out the truth for themselves.

It takes bravery to search for truth when it would be easier to step back and not face it. It took courage to share their opinions with the media as well.

This is what I wish for all people of Shiloh and any other church, search for the truth. You do need to know who your leadership is and ask the Holy Spirit for discernment in who you receive counsel from.
All churches need true men of charachter and Godliness. Sadly, we do need to know about their previous history and not just blindly follow. If many of you had known of Darrell's past problems, would you have chosen him as the leadership of your church? I know many of you would not have allowed your daugthters and wives to counsel alone with him had you been warned, some of you have told me this. I would have never been in the position I was in with him as a young person had I known of his previous issues. I blindly looked up to him and assumed he was the man of God I thought him to be. I was gravely let down.
That is why we are so shocked when we hear of these things, we have looked to this man for spiritual food and guidance, we trusted him, we prayed for him, we stood with him. Man can deceive, man can fall, but the Word of God still stands true. The Holy Spirit can guide us in discernment and also can give us uneasy feelings or warning signs, it is up to us to obey. I had warning signs and the Holy Spirit did stir some things, I pushed them aside and believed it was impossible for this leader to have less than Godly intentions towards me. That is why the scriptures teach us to keep our eyes on the Lord, not on man. He gives us guidelines for Godliness and charachter of our leaders, if they fall short of these things, we need to pray for them and we also need to take a step back and really pay attention.

I am not asking for you to believe me or any hear say, but please do open your minds and hearts to the Holy Spirit asking Him to lead you to truth.

I agree about finding the truth for yourself. One should also not condone such activity and blindly forgive as a christian. We should stand strong and correct the person or at least not associate with him to let him know of our concerns and displeasure. Darrell has deceived all of us and I do not appreciate it one bit.

Its not over yet, so if I were him, I'd be making arrangements for my wife to have whatever she wants while I'm away in prison.

He hides behinde his expensive lawyer and the blind women and their husbands who knows of his problem, however they are only thinking of themselves by not coming forward. I did and I'm glad about it. I have not had one phone call or threat, no one knows who I am. So step up and hold him accountable those who in some sick way are protecting him like he's a god.
