I know some of the members and the Pastors of Ekkesia United Holy Church.
They are basically good people. I personally do not think that they were involved in the scam at all.
However, I think that they should investigated the background of these scammers before they opened their church doors and allowed these wolves to come in and bring a reproach upon the church.
The Pastor is supposed to be the head of the church. He/she should be the first to know who comes in and goes out of the sancturary. They are the watchmen. They protect the flock. (John 10).
Maybe the pastors in Wilmington should spend some more time seeking God in prayer and fasting so that they can get filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will show you things to come, lead and guide you into all truth. The pastor would have known that they were being set up for open shame if He had the real deal.
You do not allow money changers in the temple. It is supposed to be a house of prayer for all people. Get back on track! Line the ministry back up with the Word of God, and you will not have this problem again.
Ekkesia, you were hurt this time. Don't let the devil trick you again. Get prayed up and be lead by The Spirit of God. Move on and let this be a testimony about how you learned obedience through the things that you suffered.
