Bishop I.V. Hilliard of New Light Church in Houston deserves credit for not taking part in a farce. Hilliard was chosen to help select a new pastor for Zachery Tims’ church.
Check this out:
“I was asked to be a part of a four bishop council, a committee of four bishops that would give wisdom and council and guidance to the board during their selection process,” Hilliard said.
In a special announcement, Hilliard spoke openly about his decision.
“Now after being involved for some time in the process, I have decided to resign my position in this bishop’s council. Now my commitment to integrity will not allow me to support something that I believe is deceptive and that compromises previously agreed upon procedures and protocol.” source
In other words, the “council” was formed as a smokescreen. Truth of the matter is, the powers that be— probably ruled by the devil himself, already knew who the new pastor would be prior to putting together this bishop council. Hilliard decided not to join in on the smoke and mirrors dog-and-pony show and good for him!
I would like to know where God is in all this. Was He sought? Obviously not. So another wolf, another snake, is going to slither up into the pulpit in Zachery Tims’ place and continue the conniving, slick method of “preaching” and “teaching” that he was famous for—all while enjoying the “powdery substance” that ultimately took him out of here.
Heaven help us!
