“Ray thanks for being extremely honest. Both you and Joe were intimately involved in the church and have both been hurt by leadership. It is good that both of you are not tongue lashing PJC and slandering him because this is not what this is about. You are real names with real stories that hopefully will show people that something is wrong at the top. We all love PJC dearly and do not want to bring him down. Something has changed and he obviously is not listening to the concerns in private, unfortunately they are now being exposed publicly. There is a history of a wide gap of disconect between what is preached and what is practiced. The scripture used is “if someone offends you go to him” yet there are many who have only to find that the other end will not acknowledge their wrong. Another is “one man seems right till another comes and questions him”. We have been taught from the pulpit to never hear one side and make a judgment until you hear the other. But in practice that is not the experience of many. People have been called to the carpet and rebuked severely without ever telling their side. That is a known fact throughout leadership that cannot be denied. It is for these reasons that people are wanting accountability to be put in place so that everyone becomes accountable for what they do, even the Senior Pastor.”
