Pastor convicted of abusing teenage boy

Gerald Fitroy Griffith was found guilty of two counts of sexually abusing a teenage boy in Maryland.  Griffith was the founding pastor of Redemption Christian Fellowship Church.

Charging documents said Griffith counseled the boy for two years starting in October 2003. The sexual assaults began in November 2003, when the boy was 14, at the church in Woodlawn, and continued in 2004 and 2005 at several hotels in Columbia, according to statements the youth gave to authorities.

Griffith has been tried before for similar offenses against the same boy, and two others. The trial ended in a mistrial.

Griffith is no ordinary pastor - he claims the title Apostle, which seems a bit lofty and perhaps a tad arrogant. But what the hell, when you are king... There is also concern that Griffith may be an international pedophile. Great, we export freaks now too.

Griffith is looking at up to 18 years in prison where he will come to understand the phrase - "squeal like a pig, boy".

This is a true man of God, who is
fasely accused.....May God be his Shield and protector

Mathew 5:
10Blessed are they that are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
11Blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for My sake.
12Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in Heaven; for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you.

I used to attend his church and I believe it is a cult. Gerald Griffith was being glorified as much as God was.

I've heard talk of an official sentencing as of Jun 22. Do you know where I can get more info on that?

I can testify that this man is truly a man of God, which is part taking of the fellowship of teh suffering on the Lord Jesus christ my King, Did u not read the scripture!!!!!! the bible is not a history book!!!! it happen to Joseph,the apostle Paul apostle John OHHH BY THE WAY ALL THE APOSTLES WERE IN PRISON EVEN JESUS CHRIST THE CHIEF APOSTLE, READ YOUR BIBLE!!!!! IF YOU EVER DO,I am not not just defending him but also telling you what the bible says about the last days did you not know that the saints of God will be persecuted and even killed in the last days none the less God is His defender and His return is soon, so instead of thinking about the servant of God whose name is already written in the lambs book of life. and who will be in heaven with the other apostles, For u I will say REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND"THE WORLD IS NOT A FRIEND TO THE SAINTS OF GOD" BECASUE THE RULER OF THIS WORLD IS THE DEVIL WHO BY THE WAY HATES GOD AND HATES MANKIND AND EVEN MORE THE SAINTS OF GOD.JESUS WENT TO THE CROSS AND PLEADED GUILTY FOR THE SINS OF THIS WORLD AND HE WAS INNOCENT JESUS ALSO SAID "LOOK WHAT THEY DID TO ME THEY WILL DO EVEN WORSE TO YOU" IS A SERVANT GREATER THAN HIS MASTER!!!!
I can go on and on but by now u wouldn't even understand one thing
I just said lol
none the less I pray that you all one day will fully understand who God is and one day we all will get see Him in His glory where each and every knee will bow before Him!!!! So repent of your wickednesssssssssssss and sinnnnnnnnnssssssssss. God have mercy on your life

Regarding "only god knows the truth".

The truth came out at his trial. His peers found him guilty. It is time to face the facts. He is a bad man who will spend a long time in prison. It is time for you all to find a new cult leader.

Anyone who labels themself "Apostle" is extremely arrogant. And yes, anonymous, God knows the truth.

Your scripture quotations do not apply to a convicted pedophile. He is NOT being persecuted for righteousness sake. He is being PROSECUTED for being a criminal.
