I've been aware of this forum about family harvest for about the past 2 years. Ive read pretty much all the posts.
Ive been attending FHC since I got saved in the sixth grade. I started there when it was still MCC.
I doubt that any of you would know me. My name is Justin Bielefeld. Im now posting my response to all of you. My experience at FHC has been quite the opposite of any of yours.
I first came to Christ when I was in sixth grade. My family was torn completely apart. I was being held back in school, and just about everything in my life was being destroyed. My father had always taught me to pray before I went to sleep. I dont know why , but as a kid it always stuck with me. I dilligently prayed every nigh. I didnt know God then.
It wasent till one night near end of the school year that I ened up crying out to God. The only words I could think of saying was "save me". They were the only words I could say , and I eventually fell asleep saying them over and over again.
It wasent until a month later that we were invited to MCC. Thats when I truly felt Gods presence for the first time.
Since then; I have attended there until recently for reasons I will explain.
Im 22 now. With my own mind and feelings I tell you this. Not one thing I have ever learned from Pastor Robb has ever harmed me or has made me make a bad decision. Every time I went I was built stronger.
I dont care what that man does with his money. For the most part I dont care. From being there from the time I have. I have been greatly blessed . My life has done nothing but produce. There were times when I was bitter and angry at people there. That however was my problem not theirs.
To tell Pastor Robb what to do with his money , would mean I have the right to tell everybody what to do with there money. Heck, let me tell Bill Gates what to do with his money. As far as Im concerned. God made me responsible for myself , and the stewardship of my own money. I have enough problems taking care of my own; Without having to worry about Pastor Robb.
Like you guys always say, God will handle him. Your right , he will. If Pasor Robb's not using money the way God desires . He will deal with him. So why must you try to do Gods job. Personally I know I have to take care of my own financess first.
I say all this because of what Pastor Robb has sown into my life. Do I know the man personally . No . Ive only shook the mans hand once.
What Pastor Robb has sown into me with Gods word has strengthend me beyond my own comprehension.
The outcome of my life thus far has been awesome. Because I listened to the word that God spoke through Pastor Robb.
The evidence of my life should be enough to show what God has done for me through FHC.
I currently have 2 active non-profit Christian Martial Art schools , with a 3rd on its way. In these programs , Our soul effort to to preach the Gospel, nothing else. Thus far they all have been producing.
I am also working with other ministries helping them to grow and become stronger.
As I mentioned earlier I am no longer attending FHC. Reasons being it was time to put my faith to work.
Everytime I went to church I was fed so well for so long. It seems like that was all I was doing was being fed. And I didnt feel led to any praticular ministry there either. I had the tools. I just had nowhere to use them. So after a long time of prayer in asking God to do as he wished. I was led to another church . That despretely needed everything that was taught to me by Pastor Robb. I didnt leave out of anger, or offense. I left because I was needed somewhere else.
I post this only to show that not everyones experience at FHC is evil. This is the other side of the story. This is what good comes from FHC.
I dont know what happened to the rest of you. I however was saved there. I was built strong there. Stronger then anywhere else Ive might have been. Because of that; I am winning people for Christ . What Ive learned is helping others to walk stronger in God.
So anyone who happens to wander by this forum and see this. Understand that just because a samll group of people have a problem dosent mean that FHC is an evil place. Instaed go investigate the people who have been blessed by that church. I gurantee the amount of people who succeed compared to those who left bitterly , is far greater then what it would appear to be here.
Thats my story.
