James Macdonald Gambling Scandal, Elders Excommunicated

Recommended Posts

James MacDonald, known for his Walk In The Word radio show, was forced to admit in front of his congregation that he is a frequent gambler after several elders found out about his habit.  The elders then began questioning MacDonald about Harvest Bible Chapel going from 10 million in equity in 2003 to over 70 million in debt in 2013.  But, James didn't have to answer to them.  Instead he excommunicated them and labeled them "satanic to the core", threatening that anyone in his church who associated with these men or their families would incur great detriment to their souls.

 

"Don’t stand in the middle, don’t seek to mediate.  Please avoid these former Harvest elders at all cost,  lest you incur great detriment to your own soul."

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...



I'm not the least bit surprised that a pastor would spend the tithe on himself and his own vice.  Some pastors hire hookers.  Some use it to entice teens or young housewives within their congregation.  Some use the tithe to build themselves estates and fleets of cars.  I'm sure some blow it on drugs.

So true.  What would surprise me is if even one of these megachurch pastors wasn't a fraud.  That would be shocking.
