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."

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.
