“You just don’t seem to get that the leadership of this church preaches biblical principles from the pulpit, but practices deception and lies behind closed doors. Do you really think this Pastor could go to Pastor Cymbala and tell him these things without serious repercussions? Pastor Cymbala himself doesn’t follow biblical principles; he pays people off to hide his sin, he doesn’t hold his own children accountable for their wickedness, he humiliates and demeans his own staff, he lies…yes, he lies! I won’t go into the details, but this man is a liar. So handling matters at this church in a biblical way is like trying to ask Satan to be truthful. Stop protecting the horrific abuses and practices that are going on, and remember: the actions of this leadership do not edify Christ; so many members and leaders of this church have posted the truth of what goes on, and people like you ignore the offenses, and protect the guilty! Let the truth be told!! Stop trying to hide the truth about this diseased leadership. There is no one to go to about the Pastor, because he is accountable to NO ONE. So the only way to let the truth be known is to tell it.
The person doesn’t listen…he refuses to listen to anybody, and will berate you like a child if you dare offer an opinion contrary to his. He twists your words, will turn the conversation around and make it about YOUR flaws, and tell you how he will put his “fruit of the psat 35 years” up against anybody’s; as if that has anything to do with the dishonest practices going on. He screams and yells, accuses and attacks his own workers. He has become a megalomaniac, and cannot see his own flaws; he believes he is above reproach and will bite the head off of anyone who dares question his authority. I have been on the receiving end of his tirades, and he is NOT the humble preacher you see “on stage” every Sunday. It’s so sad.”
