“I am a single mother of 4children who attend BT by subway. I am sickend by what I read here to think that I struggle every day to pay my bills feed my children TITHE to this church and my money is going to shovel Pastors CHILDREN snow? Several yrs ago I was coming out of the subway with my kids in the winter and I went to the entrance of the bld & saw Pastor come out and yell to usher Willie, go park Chrissys car. I looked and saw Pastors daughter pull in front of the church get out BY HERSELF and walk inside, Willie ran to park her car(this was before we had a parking lot). I had to pray for grace as I must admid I thought here I am taking 1h subway ride to church with my kids and Pastors daugter just pulls up and is care for by the ushers. Then I hear that over 1mil$ is spent on marble in the lobby. What about the gym for trouble youth,the crisis center for gang members, helping the struggling mothers with no support, the promise to take care of Sister Byrd? Why doesn’t someone come and shovel my snow in winter? There is something terribly wrong here when the blding, the BT name become more important than the members whm struggle each week to pay tithe. I am heartbroken for years I knew to be truth but ignored it cause I was blessed by the true believers who go to this church. But I cant ignore now, I pray for his repent. I am heart sick. Help me, Jesus.”
