God sees Everything.

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/ tschuckman@aol.com

Yes,  I attend a Baptist church in WI., where the vast majority of members there are descent, loving, kind, truthful servants of God, and very knowledgeable of the Bible, and that is what I like most about them.  But I also stand for truth, the total truth, knowing that horrible stuff like this article happens and needs to be exposed, judged and set on record.  I feel that it's very important that this link gets  published and shared--- as a great injustice has been done to an innocent girl, so let's set the matter straight.   Better to take our punishment now in this 'system' - on earth... rather than in the next 'system' for all eternity at God's displeasure.  On the other hand-- I bet this justice would NEVER happen in a Islamic country.
    Dear Lord, please correct us in your loving kindness-- and not in your wrath.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.

Warm Regards,

Ernest Willis, New Hampshire Man, Found Guilty Of Raping 15-Year-Old Tina Anderson; Pastor Sent Teen Off To Colorado (UPDATE)

Ernest Willis Found Guilty
First Posted: 9/6/11 11:01 AM ET Updated: 9/6/11 04:32 PM ET
Ernest Willis, a 52-year-old New Hampshire man, was found guilty of raping and impregnating a 15-year-old girl from his church who was shipped to Colorado by church leaders to give birth to his baby. Willis faces up to 54 years in prison for the sexual assault, The Denver Post reports. Willis will be sentenced Tuesday in Merrimack Superior Court.
The Associated Press reports that Ernest Willis was sentenced Tuesday to 15 to 30 years in prison for raping Tina Anderson twice in 1997. Judge Larry Smukler said that Willis "robbed the girl of her childhood." But Willis was stoic and although he said he was "sorry and ashamed for this thoughtless act of sexual misconduct," he never admitted to forcible rape or to a second rape. Willis' lawyers said they are planning to appeal those convictions.
Tina Anderson, who was 15 at the time of the rape, knew Willis from babysitting his children and from attending the same fundamentalist Baptist church in Concord, N.H.. The church pastor made young Anderson apologize to the congregation when she discovered that she was pregnant, but she was not allowed to tell the church goers that the pregnancy occurred because she was raped. With the consent of Anderson’s mother, the pastor then shipped the teenager to the home of a Colorado couple that she didn’t know and arranged for her baby to be adopted, according to ABC News.
7News reports that Wayne Coull, prosecutor in the case, told jurors that Anderson “got shamed, shunned, silenced and sent away.”
Concord police had shelved the case back in 1997 when they couldn’t locate the victim, completely unaware she’d been moved to Colorado. But in 2010 they revived the case when they learned of her whereabouts, according to CBSDenver.
The girl was located, now as an adult, with the help of an online website for former Fundamentalist Baptists.
Matt Barnhart, a former member of the Trinity Baptist Church who witnessed the day that Anderson was shamed and forced to apologize to the church described the event just last year on a website maintained by a group called “Independent Fundamentalist Baptist cult survivors,” the Houston Chronicle reports. The website founder contacted Barnhart and learned the girl’s identity and passed the information along to Concord police.
After 13 years of keeping this secret, Anderson, now 29 and living in Arizona with her husband and three children, was contacted by police in 2010 to finally make a statement about the events of 1997, according to the UK Daily Mail.
The Associated Press reports that Anderson made this statement to the court:
When Ernie raped me, he destroyed the person I was and, in that moment, filled me with shame and guilt that I’ve battled against repeatedly. When he decided that his sexual gratification was the most important thing in his life, he shattered mine.
Willis had previously admitted to having sex with Anderson in 1997, but claimed it was consensual. When Anderson resurfaced in 2010, Willis was arrested and remained free on bail until his May 27 conviction, The Associated Press reports.

FOR THE RECORD.   Our rules and regulations don't come from some over zealous pastor, preacher, 'man of God,' or our earthly fathers, families, or whom ever!  Our Rights, privileges, duties, work, play, the way we conduct ourselves, come from the BIBLE, and that fine 'Book' only!  And that goes for everything else concerning God's loyal servants, believers, on earth.   But I like the last part where the man says that all those who cannot limit their intake, or lack self control may be better served if they just DON'T drink at all.  
    It's sad to see various churches making their own rules that 'go beyond the scriptures' and lord it over on fellow members in the congregation.  God will judge all.

Is Drinking Alcohol A Sin?

Q.  Question–Eph.5:18, says “Do not get drunk on wine which leads to debauchery………” and there are at least 10 or 12 more references on this topic. I was taught that  consuming alcohol was a sin. I don’t think there is a reference to directly support this but the Bible does discourage this practice..  As a medical practitioner I have witnessed the terrible consequences of drinking to excess, and therefore do not participate in this practice.
I am troubled by the condoning of drinking by many pastors almost to the point of encouraging this practice!!! They will point to the fact that Jesus must have supported this because he made water into wine!!!  However there are even some Bible teaching pastors that are alcoholics.

A.  The problem lies in that what you’ve been taught goes beyond what the Bible says.  If consuming alcohol is a sin, why did God allow the Israelites to buy alcoholic beverages with their tithe money to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles (Deut. 14:22-26),  and why did Jesus turn water into wine at the wedding and give it to the guests to drink (John 2:1-10)?  It’s not consuming alcoholic beverages that the Bible condemns, but doing so to the point of drunkenness as Ephesians 5:18 says.
If a person can’t take a drink without continuing to a state of drunkenness then he or she shouldn’t drink at all.  But for the millions who can voluntarily limit their intake, there’s no biblical prohibition against consuming alcohol.
