Haiti Missionary Crime

Jesus Christ loves all the children of the world

The apostasy of the church is growing at unbelievable rates! God revealed it would in the last days. It saddens my heart that Central Valley Baptist Church, here in Meridian, Idaho, fully supports so-called missionaries who are imprisoned in Haiti and even have a fund established—“10 American Support Fund.” Please watch video:

I have to ask how much filthy lucre are these incarcerated people and Central Valley Baptist Church going to gain? Will it pay off Laura Silsby’s debts? Silsby was spearheading this mission. She has a reputation for not paying her employees and is due in court. “Silsby has been the subject of eight civil lawsuits and 14 unpaid wage claims. The $358,000 Meridian house at which she founded her nonprofit New Life Children’s Refuge in November was foreclosed upon in December. A check of Silsby’s driving record revealed at least nine traffic citations since 1997, including four for failing to provide insurance or register annually. … Beer & Cain, a Boise law firm, filed a civil suit against Silsby in January this year. The suit says Silsby owes the firm $4,526.59 and interest for services rendered. ‘The demand for payment was made on May 20, 2008, February 4, 2009, and April 3, 2009,’ the suit says.’”

God proclaims Christians are not to associate with anyone who is covetous or a swindler, 1 Corinthians 5:10, and I believe these incarcerated people fall into this category from all the distressing facts. Some may be innocent, but I don’t see how. I would assume they would have looked into the reputation of one taking them on such a mission. All these people attempted to take 2/3 of these children from their parents. “Most of the children were from the village of Callebas, where people stated, they handed the kids over because they couldn’t feed or clothe them. Their stories contradicted Silsby’s account that the children came from collapsed orphanages or were handed over by distant relatives.” Silsby’s account is what Central Valley Baptist Church proclaims regarding the hijacking of these orphans.

These charged people were presenting a resort-like haven to parents so they would forfeit their children. Their pics to persuade, included a photo of a nice swimming pool. They were advertising their wicked pursuits to take children unlawfully. Yes, it was unlawful and Silsby lied about having all the correct papers. I do not think it is wrong to assume that people were going to pay a hefty price to obtain so-called orphans, analyzing Silsby’s reputation.

The Bible books of Acts, Timothy and Titus, make it abundantly clear regarding ministry leaders. Anyone who is placed to head any leadership endeavor in a church is to be a man and he must be one who is above reproach in every way. He must be one who maintains a heart like Stephen (Acts chapters 6-7). Stephen was not worldly-minded. He never brought stupid and silly ways into the church. He never came across as unwise and ungodly. Stephen was a powerful preacher who took the Gospel in shoe leather outside the doors of the church. He preached to the unsaved and convicted the unsaved of sin, resulting in this godly man greeting death. He was a deacon and he represents the heart of every true deacon.

A deacon is an overseer of ministries under a pastor. Deacons must meet all the criteria stated in Scripture. This includes being full of the Spirit and of wisdom—knowing and applying the Scriptures. They cannot be divorced. They must have a good reputation in the community; having their households in order, etc. They cannot be sensually minded or flirtatious. Our congregations need countless Stephens to assure everything in the realm of the church is structured on a high Scriptural plane not on a carnal, fleshly level. Everything performed must be backed with the Word of God not the ways of society!

Godly men must oversee all the missions of the church. Everything is to be executed in orderliness and in obedience to the apostles’ teachings—Acts 2:42, 2 Peter 3:2, 2 Thessalonians 2:15, etc.

Women who serve under pastors and deacons must be shamefaced—dressing in modesty, in bashfulness towards men and in fear of God. They are not to be showing off their cleavage or legs. They are to be silent in the church, exampling a quiet and gentle spirit. They are to walk in total obedience to the Word of God without dissenting agendas.

Biblical qualifications have been thrown out the door of America’s churches including Central Valley Baptist Church. May all our churches wake-up and turn to the Jesus Christ of the Bible, not a false christ of man’s making. The church is to shine brightly in this world that needs a Savior.
