Zachery Tims – Some Background on Recent Events in his life and Death

My heart is heavy as I write concerning the recent death of the well known Televangelist and Preacher Zachery Tims, who was recently found dead in the W Times Square Hotel in New York City.

Narcissists Make Bad Leaders – A Study

Reading this MSNBC article entitled “Narcissists make bad leaders; here’s why” made me think about leaders in the churches exhibiting the same characteristics.

Deleting this blog out of existence was certainly on my mind concerning recent events in my life. Why do you ask?  Mainly because I have became flabbergasted recently concerning the behavior of some of those who have claimed to have left the Institutional Church (IC), YET are exhibiting the same ways, practices, and tactics, of those they negatively speak of. They left the IC but the IC hasn’t LEFT THEM. We do the same things we accuse those in the institution are doing. I have personally forgotten my first love, and for that I am in deep sorrow.

Dealing With Residual Anger

Posted in Healing Series tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , at 3:31 am by Set Free Indeed


Finding out that the institution formerly known as “church” has taken you for a ride can make even the most even tempered Christian among us ready to fight! I can tell you from experience that it’s OK to be ticked off about being lied to, but it is NOT OK TO SIN. I pray that this blog will help my brothers and sisters in the Lord find some comfort, not taking your frustrations with the institution and it’s practices out on the sheep who attend them and may not understand just yet where we are coming from.
