    Scott Sanford Running for State Representative District 70 Texas



    The Issues

    ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

    In order to keep our families secure at home, Scott will work to safeguard our borders to keep terrorists and drug traffickers out of Texas...... Scott will be a proactive legislator in the effort to reduce taxes, shrink government, decrease
    litigation,

    Sanford's stand on the issues is laughable. He is the executive pastor in a church that has a non-citizen, pyramid scammer who has threatened fellow members and he has done nothing that I can see to protect the flock. Tim Darnell should be disciplined firmly by the church and deported to whence he came. When is it man is going to Mars??? Darnell sued the Dallas Better Business Bureau and me for sharing the truth about his many scams. Is Scott going to decrease litigation by deporting Darnell?

    I would not recommend Scott for the job based on the lack of leadership he has shown in his church Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church. Please read the following linked threads and decide for yourself:

    Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church Allen, TX Pastor John Mark Caton / Tim Darnell Threatened Church Members a Hot Spot????

    Tim Darnell's Treasures for Kingdom Foundation / Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church

    Tim Darnelll (Timothy Spencer Darnell) Non-citizen / Not a Texas Resident / Mary Lou Starnater Affiant

    Re: Scott Sanford Running for State Representative District 70 Texas

    Scott Sanford is letting the pyramid scammer, Tim Darnell, that made these totally dishonest earnings claims run loose in his congregation to scam again. Read the exhibits used in the trial and ask yourself how the church could allow this scammer to defraud its members? No one ever made the whopping $1,323,000.00 that was suggested. 98% lost their money and many of those trusting Christians lost thousands and thousands of dollars they couldn't afford to lose. How can Scott Sanford provide the leadership Texas so desperately needs when he isn't able to discern an obvious scam and scammer and take appropriate action to protect his church flock ???

    Re: Scott Sanford Running for State Representative District 70 Texas

    Scott Sanford and the church had numerous complaints about Tim Darnell. Knowing Darnell had stolen the church's name and filed fraudulent documents with the state stating his charity, Treasures for the Kingdom, was an affiliate of the church and knowing that Darnell had shamelessly plugged his pyramid scam and bogus stranger owned life insurance at the church, did Scott Sanford contact the proper authorities and file complaints??? Darnell conned well respected church members into speaking at his pyramid schemes conferences. That caused pillars of the church to leave the congregation. Did Scott Sanford take appropriate action at that time?

    The church's attorney and board member Curtis Harrison was the counsel for the family that Tim Darnell threatened that ultimately left the church as well. Did Scott Sandford do right by the real victims? Can Scott Sanford explain why Tim Darnell is still hosting bible studies in his home with his history? Are the church members being given full and honest disclosure so that they can decide if they feel safe exposing their families to Darnell?

    I think his track record at the church speaks for itself. If Sandford has shown a total lack of leadership in his church and doesn't go to the authorities when prudent, why would we want him in public office?

    Re: Scott Sanford Running for State Representative District 70 Texas

    The comment wars are raging on the local news sites:
    Star Local News > Mckinney Courier-gazette > News > Sanford makes bid for District 70 seat
    soapboxmom wrote on Nov 10, 2011 2:22 PM:" I would beg to disagree. I don't believe that Scott Sanford is a good choice.

    "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke)

    Scott Sanford may be a good man, but as an executive pastor at Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church I think he happily swept scandals under the rug and allowed an evil doer to harm the flock.

    Timothy Spencer Darnell threatened fellow members of Cottonwood Creek Baptist Creek. The McKinney Police had to respond. That family and others left the church.

    Darnell stole the church's name to set up a charity. Fraudulent filings were made with the state of Texas listing Tim Darnell's charity, Treasures for the Kingdom, as an integrated auxiliary of the church. In order to protect the church from legal action Scott Sanford authored an Affidavit stating the church and its staff had not given permission for its name to be used and that Cottonwood Creek had no affiliation with Darnell, his charity or his company, Advantage Conferences, and was not on the board of any of the named entities.

    Advantage Conferences was yet another one of Darnell's pyramid scams that he promoted to fellow church members. 98% of the Christians that were lured in lost money and many of them lost thousands and thousands of dollars they could not afford to lose. Advantage Conferences was confirmed to be a pyramid scheme when it sued the Better Business Bureau and lost in Summary Judgment.

    Darnell also tried to get the church tangled up in his stranger owned life insurance on seniors debacle. That scheme caused terrible harm as not a dime changed hands and 60 Advantage Conferences reps had gotten insurance licenses and devoted months to that bogus program. Darnell is so exceedingly dishonest he tried to get $10,000,000.00 in damages from the BBB in his bogus suit as he claimed the church wouldn't participate in his insurance scam because of the BBB's posting questioning publicly if Advantage Conferences was a pyramid scheme.

    The church has had complaints from numerous families about Darnell's activities and they simply sweep them under the rug while valued members leave. Darnell, in a desperate attempt to silence me (a legitimate critic) fabricated allegations of me sending him death threats and stalking his family and the Jack Weinzierl family. When Darnell personally filed a groundless, harassment suit against me all that was proven to be fiction and Darnell once again lost in Summary Judgment

    Darnell is still a member in good standing and thus the church puts its members at risk of being scammed and worse allows the Darnells to host a youth bible study at their home. A man with a history of threatening church members, scamming Christians, filing frivolous lawsuits, stealing the church's name and more is loose in the flock. Scott Sanford and John Mark Caton have swept all this under the rug for years. How can Sanford serve the public when he can't keep his church flock safe. There is nothing honest or Christian about knowingly putting folks in harms way. "


    Tim Darnell wrote on Nov 11, 2011 12:58 PM:" I know Scott Sanford to be a highly principled, intelligent, and genuinely compassionate leader. His competencies will serve our district extremely well in the Texas Legislature.

    Soapboxmom's comments are distortions and completely unsubstantiated. She conveniently leaves out the fact that all of these spurious allegations have been tried in Collin County Civil Court. The court found all of the charges to be unsustainable and granted a Directed Verdict on all counts in our favor. I will be glad to send a PDF copy of the Judge's signed and dated Directed Verdict to anyone interested.

    Cottonwood Creek is a truly phenomenal ministry in every regard and has absolutely nothing to do with the concocted "ideas" purported by Soapboxmom. "



    soapboxmom wrote on Nov 12, 2011 11:56 AM:" None of those allegations are spurious. The McKinney police have the report showing Darnell was threatening people and I have his testimony about that from his losing case against me filed in Dallas County that is posted on Realscam.com.

    The Affidavit from the Church is on Realscam.com in its entirety as well. Sanford stated unequivocally that the church was not affiliated with Darnell, his charity, Treasures for the Kingdom, or Advantage Conferences and Darnell never had permission to use the church's name. Darnell stole the name of the church and filed documents with the State of Texas claiming his charity to be an integrated auxiliary of Cottonwood Creek. He told Advantage Conferences reps that Cottonwood Creek's pastors were on the board and further proclaimed that affiliation(non-existent though it was) gave the charity 501(c) 3 status.

    Mr Darnell's pyramid scheme sued the Dallas Better Business Bureau in Dallas District Court. His pyramid scam, Advantage Conferences, lost in Summary Judgment and its accounts were garnished to satisfy the judgment against it. The hideous demand for the BBB of Dallas to pay $10,000.00 in damages due to Cottonwood Creek Baptist church refusing to buy Tim Darnell's bogus stranger owned life insurance on seniors is part of that case.

    Mr. Darnell sued me personally in Dallas District Court. The allegations of me threatening him were in his lie-filled original petition. He lost again in Summary Judgment.

    The case Tim Darnell refers to was a suit filed against him and his adjudicated pyramid scheme, Advantage Conferences in Collin County. That elderly rep lost thousands of dollars and after Darnell dragged the case out and ran up the legal fees to over $80,000.00 my family could no longer fund the lawyer to help her and I stepped in as lead plaintiff without the benefit of counsel. I could not carry the majority of the allegations as they could not be assigned to another party. His co-defendant, Jack Weinzierl did not produce any discovery outside of his 1099's before trial except for a few e-mails he turned over a week before trial. The judge told the elderly victim that they had ripped her off. He saw no way with the evidence presented to help her. He did not award Darnell and Weinzierl any attorney fees.

    I dropped the appeal in order to be able to blog about these defendants. We were under a gag order and I chose not to continue the case because of that gag order. 98% of the Christians that were lured into Advantage Conferences lost money. Many were out thousands and thousands of dollars they could not afford to lose.

    I can forward thousands of pages of original court documents and transcripts to anyone that would like them. All of this is also posted on Realscam.com in numerous individual threads about these topics as well.

    When Darnell made hideous allegations of me sending him death threats and stalking his family I turned myself into the police in Allen, TX. I also contacted the pastors of his church and warned them that he was desperate and dangerous. All this was litigated in my favor in the harassment suit Tim Darnell filed against me and lost in Summary Judgment.

    I think Cottonwood Creek has done a phenomenal job of sweeping many serious concerns and legitimate complaints under the rug. I am one of many of his victims that has sought help from the church. Their response was to put him in charge of the 7th grade Bible study out of his home and sit back and watch as long time members leave the church.

    If Scott Sanford can't show strong leadership at Cottonwood Creek and take a firm stand against those that would harm his flock and the public, then I don't want him in office. "


    soapboxmom wrote on Nov 12, 2011 12:03 PM:" The readers should also be aware that Mr. Darnell has renounced his United States Citizenship and Texas residency by Affidavit in Dallas County Court. He was a tax protester that sent in Affidavits instead of returns and refused to pay his taxes from 1999-2005. That garnered him a $97,265.17 IRS tax lien filed on January 6, 2011 for his 2005 taxes. He is also once again being sued for delinquent property tax. So, this anti-establishment character is certainly not a ringing endorsement for any legitimate candidate. He should be deported to Mars or wherever it is he came from! "

    Thank you! Yes it was. Is anyone surprised that those truthful comments were removed? That is how Scott Sanford and Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church operate. Make it disappear and sweep it under the rug. Deny, deflect, and do whatever it takes to hide the truth and shirk any responsibility.

    The church does not appear to be taking the appropriate steps to protect its members. It does not report obvious scams and schemes to law enforcement as far as I can tell. Their name was stolen and used to make fraudulent filings with the State of Texas and apparently that went unreported as well. Tim Darnell used the church's once good name to bilk money out of innocent Christians for his publicity stunt charity, Treasures for the Kingdom, and the church has taken no decisive action.

    Tim Darnell invoked their once good name to try and bilk $10,000,000.00 out of the BBB of Dallas claiming the BBB posting questioning whether Advantage Conferences was a pyramid scheme was the reason Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church would not invest in his stranger owned life insurance scam. Well, boys and girls that scam imploded as did Advantage Conferences after they won the frivolous suit Darnell filed against them in District court and emptied Advantage Conferences bank account. Why would Darnell drag the church into his sleazy lie-filled lawsuit against the BBB???

    I demand to see the proof that the church has done the right things to protect their members and the public. I want honest answers and disclosure. Why is Darnell allowed to host Bible study for teens in his home? This is another Penn State type scandal in the making. The financial scams / improprieties are being swept under the rug just as those child abuse allegations were. Will the church members take up a collection to help the victims of Tim Darnell's fraudulent charity, Advantage Conferences and his insurance scam? Will they see that those folks have food on the table and help recovering financially or just continue looking the other way???

    I will be watching Scott Sanford and Cottonwood Creek Baptist to see if they take any steps to help clean up the mess they were instrumental in making. Cottonwood Creek sweeping all this under the rug and allowing scammer Darnell to run loose is tacit approval. That is not in the least honest or Christian behavior!!!

    Re: Scott Sanford Running for State Representative District 70 Texas

    What else can I say, but one way or the other someone is getting screwed! We need tougher laws that require child abuse, financial fraud and the rest must be reported under stiff penalty of law!!!! I don't think Sanford can get such necessary legislation through judging from his record!!!!

    The only thing I can add is if this guy can't run a church honestly and aboveboard, who would want him as a politician? Thanks but I'll pass.

    • Scott Sanford


      There are over 3,700 government entities in TX that impose property taxes. That is just too many...it's time for some serious reform to reduce the tax burden on property owners!

      Share December 28, 2011 at 11:04am

    Does this clown even understand what comprises those 3700 taxing entities? Those include every school district, city, county, hospital district and community college district in Texas. There is no possible way to really reduce the number of taxing districts. What a complete moron! We need to do everything possible to keep this goof out of office!

    Scott Sanford


    Just officially filed to run for State Representative in District 70. I will work hard to earn and honor the support of the voters.

    This sure is laughable in my book. What has he done to earn the respect of his church members with the shenanigans going on. Perhaps I should refresh his memory. The following was sent to many of the pastors as they were on the e-mail list to get it. I forwarded it to some of the pastors. I called and spoke with Joe Patton the Senior pastor in charge of counseling and demanded to know why this dangerous and delusional nut Tim Darnell was in positions of leadership and not being required to get the medical and psychological help he clearly needed. Tim Darnell and Jack Weinzierl and their families were never stalked by be or sent death threats. I turned myself in to the Allen Police and Tim sued me and all this was proven to be fiction. Don't take my word for it, but please do read the Harvard law site. Why in the hell is Tim Darnell still in that church in leadership positions? Why has the church board not long ago revoked Darnell's membership? Tim Darnell has been literally robbing church members and Christians out of thousands of dollars in his pyramid schemes and destroyed hundreds of families. Why isn't Sanford protecting his flock? Can't Cottonwood Creek see how dangerous and disturbed Darnell truly is from the following:

    Footsteps of Faith Messenger - Issue 178

    Choosing Sides
    Luke 12:51
    Tim Darnell The time is already here. It is a time where Believers and Non-Believers are so distinctly divergent in their views that multiple battles are taking place on many fronts all over the world. I vividly see distinct battle-lines as Founder of a boldly Christ-centered business that functions in a secular marketplace. And I believe the divide is going to become more pronounced and confrontational for both sides in the very near future.
    Which side are you on?

    1. Non-Believers – the world. Many in this vast population even call themselves Christian, but really don’t, won’t, and can’t stand up for anything, and they are determined to not bother anyone else. Factually, the majority of Christians fall into this category. They believe the distinction between right or wrong is a personal decision because there really are no absolutes or standards in life worth being vocal about, especially if it could lead to disagreement or conflict. These are people guided much more by the world, anything that is financially expedient, and society’s popular trends, than they are led by their belief in Jesus Christ and the presence of the Holy Spirit (this very sentence is to them, ‘gobble-di-goop’). They arepolitically correct. They are much more led by and dependent on the company in which they are employed, and their paycheck than they are their convictions regarding Jesus. Virtually all of their decisions are made based on the almighty dollar, not Almighty God.

      Who are Non-Believers?
      1. Nominal Christians – Christian in name only, milquetoast observers of “religion”, but people who lack a genuine foundation in, and reliance on, the Bible - and in reality possess few convictions about anything. Pleasure seeking, they don’t have genuine joy regarding the redeemed life or salvation. They may not like evil, but they’re not really against abortion, the homosexual and anti-traditional marriage movement, or religions and entities that are not Christ centered. Discernment is not Biblically based for them, but rather a personal, day to day cognitive process (human reasoning is the real guide).
      2. Social Chameleons - adapt to whatever environment they are currently in regardless of beliefs and classification. “It’s all good…” When in church, they are Christians. When in a rock concert, they’re equally as committed to, and part of a God-less, hedonistic scene.
      3. New Agers – have an affinity for positive materials, but refer to God as the higher power, or the universe. They view Jesus as a very good person, the master teacher (if the subject of His Name comes up at all), although only one of many. The Bible is good for the New Ager only for the fact that it has some good “sayings” and quotes that can be used to support whatever mystical theory (“secret”) they are promoting at the time.
      4. Agnostics – it doesn’t matter whether or not there is a spiritual realm or the ‘so-called’ God of the Bible.
      5. Atheists – there is no God.

    2. Believers –Christ-centered individuals who believe and live their life according to their belief in Jesus Christ, the Word of God - every day of the week. They are not perfect by any stretch, but they believe that there is such a thing as unwavering truth - solid absolutes that can be ascertained via the Bible and revelation from the Holy Spirit, and that those directives can be lived by and lived out. They believe that these absolutes are worthy of maintaining and striving for. These vibrant, Politically Incorrect people are not ruled by the world’s standards or by what the world thinks of them, but rather, rely on the Word of God on a daily basis for direction, strength, and discernment. They believe Jesus Christ (not just God, and not the church, the Pope, a political party, or a church’s constitution) is central to, and vitally important for, every aspect of their life.

    If you haven’t made distinct choices about what you really believe in life, then it’s easy to migrate in and out of any business, club, church, organization, country, etc., without any problem at all. You can be a social chameleon, changing your beliefs to suit the people with whom you are currently in contact. The ‘easy’ thing about being adaptable as a social chameleon is that no one will really be threatened by you, because you are someone who really stands for nothing. You strive to be liked by whomever you are around at the time and that is exactly the kind of person most people prefer. Fitting in is the goal, rather than following Jesus.

    Non-believers simply look for comfort and pleasure for themselves and their family. They sometimes will reach out to help others, but that is usually a short-lived, sporadic lifestyle when not prompted and sustained by genuine Godly strength.

    The world is not threatened by Non-Believers, only by true Believers - strong individuals who know to Whom they belong, in Whom they believe, and Who they serve. To the dismay of the world, Believers are courageous enough to take a stand in their life. These are the Warriors – reminiscent of David’s mighty men. (Many of these Believer/Warriors are strong Christian women, lest you think I’m gender biased – which is not at all the case.) Warriors are individuals who go into the secular world with their message, beyond the four walls of the church, living their daily lives on the front lines. They are the ones who can be counted on to lovingly and firmly speak up for King Jesus and the Truth of the Bible regardless of environment or circumstances.

    ATTACKS
    And Warriors are the very ones who will consistently bear the brunt of attack and persecution. Why - because people who truly believe in Christ present a disturbing challenge to those who have not taken a stand for the Truth. The message of the Gospel is Good News to those who believe, but it is horrifying to those who don’t. True Believers attend and support the church, but they live their lives outside of the four walls of the church in the light of His love smack dab in the middle of the dog-eat-dog world. Their light is evidenced in service, courage, diligence, work, consistency, congruence, patience, and tireless ministry away from the safety of the fortress of the church. But
    True Believers are irritating to the world. Their light is abhorrent to those who have chosen to dwell in the shadows. And Non-Warriors/Non-Believers certainly aren’t willing to go through what Warriors are willing to face and endure.

    Warriors dare to speak up for Jesus in places that have formally or informally outlawed the mention of His Mighty Name. The marketplace is with few exceptions, one such place, if not the most needed place for this to happen.
    Say the name of Jesus in the marketplace. Do it consistently and watch the demons of hell come out from under the bogs and out of their comfortable cesspools, spewing hideous, wretched venom. Funny thing about those demons – they always prefer to work under the cover of darkness. They’re great at espionage and covert, cowardly hit and run tactics. But, boy, do they hate the light.

    We’ve encountered many of those demons on the Internet. They can hurl their lies and hate-filled accusations, saying virtually anything they want about True Believers, their number one targets, because they can denunciate and attempt to destroy with very little fear of reprisal. Virtually all choose to remain anonymous for fear of being exposed! They’ll also resort to other methods, like making phone calls to try to malign and destroy a Believer’s character, business, and reputation, the content of those messages and calls always being jaded, twisted, and oftentimes, malicious lies.
    “But, a good man, when attacked, allows time to prove him right.” (unknown)

    Demons of the Internet remind me of road-rage drivers who feel like they have license and power to attack others while in their cars. Those same people would never be involved in those kinds of attacks if they were person to person, not empowered by the machismo and shelter of their automobile – a strange, almost unexplainable phenomenon. People have aggressive tendencies that are dormant under certain conditions, yet are released and expressed in others.
    It is clear that there is more pent-up anger and hatred roaming around than we care to admit.

    On the Internet, lies are the essence and substance of the attacks. In my case, one such attacker, a Heather Dobrott from Garland, Texas, has literally and physically stalked me and my top Representative, Jack Weinzierl, for over two years now.We only now know her name after she called many of our Guest Mentors, hotel management, our Pastors and Staff of our churches. This has gone on for literally years, although she finally made the mistake of leaving her real name and contact information with one of our speakers. She’s made defaming my name and character, including several of our top business associates, a career path. I’m still mystified by her hatred and obsession, but it is indeed the reality we’ve experienced.

    Well, Tim, that’s certainly not politically correct to share her name in a published document. Exactly.
    That’s what the enemy relies on – nobody taking a stand; nobody enunciating the truth. The enemy relies on our abdication of the podium. The problem with our not speaking up is that it turns the microphone over to the enemy, front and center. If I knew a thief that was clearly robbing homes in your neighborhood, would you prefer that I not expose him and let you discover (the hard way) his real name after the fact - after you’ve been robbed? Those who stand for nothing believe you shouldn’t speak out. But Warriors understand the importance of knowing who the enemy is. When the enemy chooses you as a target, you’d better clearly understand, acknowledge and react to the fact of who they are and that you are indeed in a battle. In fact, naming your enemy is the first step to Slaying Your Giant!

    Re: Scott Sanford Running for State Representative District 70 Texas

    This woman has physically followed us on multiple occasions, taken pictures of our homes, taken pictures of our vehicles (why – I have no idea), our families, and most noticeably, posted negative filth about my character and every move I’ve ever made in our Christ-centered business - all on a regular basis. It brings to her an apparently needed sense of importance, and functionally raises the particular blog and website higher in the search engine rankings. Not a word has to be true, yet it still gets to the public. She presents a case based on some truth, but twists each fact to make me and my associates look like the negative opposite of what we really are.

    Is that not the exact way the way the enemy, the father of lies, teaches his pupils to operate? Take the truth and twist it just enough to still appear plausible, but present it in such a way as to tear that person down. Never say anything positive. Cast aspersions. Make demeaning remarks constantly. Question their intentions continually. Deny any good they’ve ever done. Condemn their morality. Deny their Christianity. Say anything you possibly can to make them look bad. Make fun of their business acumen. Berate their ideals. Talk about their clothes, their hair, their children, their parents – whatever, just be sure to put them down. The enemy does all of these things as a way of life....

    Non-Believers treat Believers in a variety of ways:

    1. Ignore
    2. Avoid
    3. Dialogue and Respect (thank God – there are many civil Non-Believers!)
    4. Gossip (anonymously posted on the Internet)
    5. Lies and character assassination (about any and/or every aspect of a person’s life)
    6. Stalking (I naively thought that just occurred on television)
    7. Organized Attacks (misery loves company – get others involved in the hate fest)
    8. Political Agendas / Lobbying (the homosexual lobby has been and still is the most powerful, highly organized group in Congress)
    9. Elect Liberal Judges (Justice? – a figment of our imagination. If you don’t believe this one, you’ll be welcomed with a wink and open arms in the courtroom.)
    10. Pass Laws that Outlaw Truth and the Word of God (is it now illegal to use the terms, “husband and wife” in California – no, I’m not making this up)
    11. Death Threats – oh, yeah, lot’s of bravado on the Internet!

    The courts, at least in Texas, are filled with liberal judges, so the anti-Christian, anti-Capitalism, and anti-Republican movement is for all intents and purposes, sanctioned. If you fall under two or three of these classifications, then, all I can say is good luck in a court of law, you’re going to need it.

    The problem with the Heather Dobrott’s of the world is that they will definitely have an influence on folks in the Non-Believer category. Since Non-Believers are the majority, then she’ll be somewhat successful, even in the midst of their obviously biased, one-sided, negative stance. The world loves negativity and destructive language. It’s what they understand and literally pay to hear.

    The goodthing about the Heather Dobrott’s of the world is that they help cull (that’s a farming term meaning ‘picking out the bad plants or animals’) the Non-Believers and Non-Warriors out of my business and out of my life. Why is that a good thing?
    Because Non-Believers are value-less on the front lines. They hinder the cause of Christ and hinder those who have taken that stand. Confronted with the difference in my message and her message, each person has to take a stand. They have to make a decision as to which camp they’re really in. You can’t believe me and Heather at the same time. One is right and the other is wrong. Whichever one you believe indicates who you serve – the world or Jesus. So, she unwittingly serves a valuable service for my family, my business and in truth, all of God’s kingdom! You see, I really don’t want and can’t use Non-Believers in my business. Nor does God allow them into His kingdom, although He does use the enemy at times to further His kingdom. (see: Romans 8:28, Genesis 50:20)
    Non-Believers fall for anything, usually flat on their face when making decisions. They simply don’t have the backbone or ‘ankle strength’ needed to accomplish what could, and should be, their God-given agenda.

    Non-Believers consistently avoid anything that could harm their income or current lifestyle. So, if they see that I, for instance, am under attack while standing for Christ, they’ll not choose to support me, nor will they support anyone else in a similar situation. No, they’ll tuck tail and run in order to avoid any potential confrontation or conflict. Their guiding mechanism is to protect the mammon (worldly possessions and money) to which they dearly cling and on which they depend. They prefer to placate and empathize with the enemy rather than stand strong against the enemy.

    The fact is, Jesus Christ, came to divide. He said so Himself in Luke 12:51, “Do you think I have come to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.” Have I seen this in a very real and personal way?!? Yes, I certainly have. And if you choose to follow Him as a True Believer and a Warrior, then don’t expect everyone to treat you the affable way to which you’ve grown accustomed. Pleasing the world is easy. It’s a free ticket into any environment. But that automatic glide you’ve been on in “please the world mode” is really nothing more than a free-fall. You’re going to face and join Jesus now or you’ll be forced to make the “side” decision at impact or some point soon. The latter is not what Christ wants for you. He says the right timing for you to choose to enter the “narrow door” is now, and that door will soon be shut. (see: Luke 13:22-30)

    So, which side do you choose to be on? You’ve got to take a stand against the lies and deceptions of the world and determine what “truth” really is for your life. My truth is Jesus Christ, the very best and only viable choice – the only side on which to stand. If you choose your own thinking as truth, you’ve missed the mark. You’ll be on the wrong side.
    If you listen to and fall for the Heather Dobrott’s, cynical, satanic attacks, you will have missed truth completely. But when you start reading God’s Word, and get on your knees humbly seeking His voice, you’ll begin to hear the very voice of God and come to know Jesus Christ personally. His voice is soft, often barely a whisper. The world’s voice is loud and brash. Yet, He is the only “Truth, Way, and Life” (see John 14:6), and you’ve got to choose which of the two voices you’re going to follow. This is a very clear distinction of no small consequence. The choice is indeed a dividing line for life and death.

    Once you’ve firmly chosen the side of Truth – Jesus Christ, you’ll start recognizing other men and women of God who have taken a stand along with you. My message will ring true with you because you’ll recognize truth when it is spoken. That is in no way to elevate or glorify me at all. It is rather to God’s glory that you turn off the voices of deception and listen to people like myself, though imperfect, who lead their lives guided by His truth. You will support them and they will support you in the struggle.

    I have prayed for Heather for two years now. I believe that even a person with her past has a good side and that she will soon show that side. I believe she will be convicted of the folly of her words and ways, become a True Believer, and repent of the scoffer and mocker mentality and personality she’s exhibited for so long. Her life is in God’s hands, not mine. We know that Truth - Jesus Christ, wins in the end. In the meantime, we are fully aware that Warriors and True Believers will face persecution – that is a given, and it’s OK. That’s the life of a Warrior for Christ, and we are very clear as to which side we’ve chosen.

    If you are facing persecution because of your stance for Christ, then I know whose side you are on. Praise God for you and your choice. If you’re not facing persecution because of your stance regarding Christ, then that’s a very good indication you are not a threat to the world because you are really no different than those who have chosen the world’s side.
    In our life, we have to choose sides. Which one is it for you?

    If you would like to commit your life to Jesus Christ, you can do so, and thereby experience the most important gift ever offered to mankind! You don’t have to be perfect – I’m certainly not and I know you aren’t either. In fact, we all sin and fall far short of perfection. Won’t you make the greatest decision you can ever make? I pray that you will do so today.
