Answer
Dear Karen,
The Scriptures concede that matters of sin should be dealt with within the church. However, HE has ordained "all authorities" Romans 13 if the realm of offense exceeds the church's willingness or ability to handle it. I am not an attorney so that realm is one I am not a professional in. However, if the offenses that you allude to can be handled by those "over" the church leaders where the offenses occurred than I would encourage you to take it to the next level within that denomination.

Hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Pastor Ron

Pastor Ron

Expertise

I feel comfortable answering questions regarding those practices of Christianity that are not in line with the Holy Scriptures. I believe that I can answer questions about the Law of GOD and it's application for professing believers in JESUS today. I can help folks understand what GOD'S Word says on a variety of subjects like; Personal Discipleship, Holy Spirit, Marriage & Family, Holiness, Grace, Demonology, Prophecy, the Last Days, etc. I may not know all of the answers, but I know someone who does!

Experience

I have been a Christian since 1977 and a pastor since 1988 in a Non-Denominational church setting. Prior to that I came out of a drug / alcohol background and have been able to use that experience as well as a daily study of GOD'S Word to sort out my own life and hopefully to help others do the same. I have studied Christianity extensively and major in it's biblical and non-biblical perspectives on life. I have studied the traditions of Evangelicalism and am able to offer answers to those seeking answers on more of a biblical approach in their life.

Education/Credentials
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies. I have taught both Old Testament and New Testament studies in two Bible Colleges: Logos Bible College and Calvary Chapel Bible College. I have been teaching the Bible in home bible studies, weekly church services, college courses and through radio broadcasts for 25 years.
