Adding to the filth are the things that the ministry did to cover up the abuse. They regularly dismissed the stories of the children and teenagers and embraced the abusers as the victims. Some even made the children and teenagers apologize to the abuser because he was a prominent member or was the child of an elder or the minister himself. One minister had the abuser write a letter to the parents of the girl he abused apologizing for the them for the abuse and never said anything to the child. The parents, stupidly like expected, did nothing. Members were not to sue members or turn them in to the police.
There have been a few instances over the years when ministers and members of the Church of God have been sent to prison. Those stories have been covered here in the past, though they are minuscule compared to the number of people sexually abused.
There has never been any accountability in the church to its members for abuse that has taken place, not then and certainly not now, as it is STILL going on in the Churches of God. The excuse some make is to let God take care of it in his own time. Others are afraid of being kicked out of the church and losing their salvation.
Why has the Church of God, who claims 1st century true Christianity, cared so little about is children and members?
