Speak to the Citadel to be Removed
The words about Pathways and Mike stepping down were spoken about but the ones about Brad were not except for a few people close to me.
On April 6, 2013 I attended the Saturday evening service at Pathways in order to hear for myself that Pastor Brad Liebe was being removed from the senior pastor position because of what they called, "an inappropriate relationship with another woman".
As I sat there listening to Mr. Eaton I thought, wait a minute, why are you not saying that Brad
has repented and turned back to Christ but are saying instead that the Liebe's have turned to counseling?
Why are you telling us that Brad
was in a repeated affair to squelch gossip and confusion and not because Paul instructs us to in 1 Timothy so that we don't sin in the same way?
And in that line of thought why are you, and the guest speaker, equating us with Brad
instead of warning us from the destruction of sin and addressing the more serious consequences biblically for leaders who cause a little one to stumble or lead his
Can you see the subtle shift from a Biblical view to a humanistic view?
This shift is exactly what the Lord is telling me He
is finished with and about to destroy and remove by calling the Body back to His
As I heard more information come out about the situation at Pathways
I noticed some other very disturbing things in the leadership at Pathways and in the Assemblies of God
, again all directly related to this shift away from the headship of Christ.
Let me explain.
Brad Liebe was initially an ordained minister in the Assemblies of God.
He was a minister at Dan Betzer's AG church in Fort Myers, Florida and became Sr.
In 2008 (I believe), Brad
left that church in scandal.
It is said that he
embezzled nearly $700,000.00 from the church and the Board covered up the enormity of the act.
No legal action was taken.
did have his
AG ministry credentials revoked and was asked to apologize to the body of believers in FL.
began a restoration process for fallen AG ministers but quit before it was finished, re-ordained by Grace International
and took the job as Pathways SR. Pastor.
ASSEMBLIES OF GOD
father is Larry Liebe.
It is hard for me to fathom that those who oversee Brad
and Steve could possibly agree that while they represent and shepherd the AG denomination in our area, a blind eye should be turned to attending a non-AG church whose pastor was disciplined and removed from the Assemblies of God
The message this speaks to the body at Pathways
is that everything is ok and gives Brad
a level of credibility that he
simply does not have.
Now as we see in Section 10, due to the revocation of Brad Liebe's
credentials by the Assemblies of God
, it is improper for the district officials to give approval to his
ministry, seriously undermining the verdict given by the general council when Brad
was removed from the Assemblies of God
The bylaws maintain a level of accountability to the scriptures and to the leadership in place over these Pastors, however, Brad
father and those closely associated with him are following another course that contradicts even that which they signed to uphold.
And yet Grace International
with such a serious scandal still in process of investigation.
was voted in by the church membership to become the Senior pastor by a 97% yes vote.
Two weeks after Brad
was voted in, the exposure of his
embezzlement was made public and he
was fired and publically brought before the congregation to fess up to what he
elected to NOT go through the 2 year AOG pastoral restoration program , thereby having his
AOG credentials pulled.
Praying for Brad Liebe's wife and children during this difficult time.
Jesus took the short man back to his
house, where are wise men to take Brad
house than makers of mere condemnation?
Brad did not meet those requirements when he was hired by Pathways.
That makes the Pathways leadership the ones who are corrupt.
That has yet to be dealt with.
Unfortunately most of the church is still blind to this corruption.
had a proven track record of criminal behavior and immorality.
knew about this when they hired him.
is not the problem, he
was only being the criminal and sociopath that he
had already proven himself to be.
The remaining leadership of Pathways
is the problem.
If you want the full details of who Brad
is and who Pathways
is for hiring him in the first place, please look here: http://wisdomseekerprov4.blogspot.com/
I was wondering if any of you know who the man was who stood up in the Sunday morning service a few weaks before Brad
was exposed and rebuked him?
I heard that same morning from a friend who was there that the man spoke for a moment from the floor but then Brad
cut him off and ushers came and escorted him out.
What I am wondering is who that man is and what exactly did he
