Here is the audio link were you can here Dave talk about his experiences in Maryland. It is actually very humble and heartfelt.


Thank you.
Do you know the name of that church in Maryland and who the leaders are?

The true "Matthew 18" process has never been practiced in GC* churches: the closest they had were kangaroo courts where the victim was put in front of a congregation and kept silent or abused by Jim McCotter--the founding "apostle" for whom a quasi-apology statement/of weaknesses was half-heartedly issued upon the initiative of one national leader only who was willing to sign it which the others, to me and whole congregations, have stated was a mistake/regrettable but which has proven useful to them to trot-out now and then when the same issues from the last 30 years resurface because these are fake shepherds with false humility who lord it over everyone and not only abuse, but protect the abusers of, the sheep.

The reason they say to go up that hierarchy is that they DON'T want you to go to the congregation publicly--when they teach falsely their own stated process is to go to the top, and if you still disagree you can silently, "decide to leave" (as four of their pastors, including several "founding disciples" trained under McCotter and cliqued-in with the national leadership, explained to us at an "emergency meeting").
