Word is trickling in that WARD AME has settled its lawsuit in regards to the alleged sexual molestation of a then 15-year old boy by (the late) Sylvester Laudermill Jr. in 2004. Speculation has abounded whether Laudermill died of AIDS (and not unrelated cancer) and also infected the “John Doe” with HIV.
“Ward AME settled their portion of the lawsuit in early February for $300,000. I can tell you that I am 100% sure that John Doe in Los Angeles does NOT have HIV. It is John Doe T in St. Louis that has been infected, unfortunately. Also, John Doe in Los Angeles was 16 when the incident occurred in late 2005.”
A word to church leaders of all denominations: if you have been living a lifestyle of sin, in humility please repent now, seek help for your addictions and brokenness and make amends for your ways. Sexual abuse of boys and girls, homosexuality and complicit silent consent of sexual immorality in the ranks is being judged. Some will die and their evil deeds will be exposed. Others their evil ways will be exposed before they die.
For the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God. And if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who refuse to obey the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17
The LORD is slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generations. Numbers 14:18
Let us all strive to turn away the anger of the Lord and stop this falling on the heads of this coming generation. Let us not subject the children to the wrath of God. Do not turn your head and cover for these vipers. Don’t be so enamored with titles, positions and talents that you refuse to speak out and save the life of a child. Don’t allow satan to mock God in his own house and we say and do nothing.
Some people dont like it that “church business” is exposed to the world. That’s too bad. Once God has decided to expose it, there’s nothing you can do to stop it. But as a word of warning to anybody “in the world” who is reading this and laughing, your day of judgment is coming and it will be much more severe than it will be for those who are in God’s house. Your only recourse is to repent of your sins and live your life according to the Word of the Lord.
