In a stunning display of the Love of Money, COGIC, Inc. has placed a lien against a local church; Greater First Church of God in Christ located in Knoxville, Tennessee. One might think how much money could a local church owe the National for them to place a lien against them? The answer is none; the local church went through the  transfer process (which is why transfers were stopped by the General Board a violation) because they believe there is money to be gobbled up.

There is now a new weapon in the leaderships insatiable appetite for money place a lien on the property and extort money form the local congregation.  This is done under the “Trust Clause”.  Another example of the need for the General Assembly to amend a clause which is noting more than a license to steal.

    • The facts have been checked and they are accurate, not just facts as have been narrated but objective facts. Again, the facts are accurate, if you disagree, I would be willing to look at written proof, not heresy. Not what someone said but hard cold facts.

  2. The Lein by the National Church has been a good jthing in this case. Thank God they DID put a Lein. They are not the predators. They are the protectors of the members. Maybe you should check your facts before writing your article.

    • It is interesting when people say “check your facts” what little they actually know. Facts are objective or as Ray Charles said “it will do what its going to do”. The facts when checked and thoroughly vetted, as well as actions taken by the National Church throughout the country paint a different picture than the one you are looking at.
