Look how fast the BGBC elves went to work. It was brought to my attention that a new review up at the DexKnows review site, but it was shoved down so far that you have to click on “See All Reviews” in order to see it. They appear to be intentionally revising their glowing positive review in order to move theirs up and shove down the negative ones. They must have a phone chain or something to work that fast.
Doesn’t this really show that their primary focus is their image? If they had nothing to hide, they would leave the reviews stand as is. Manipulation, much?
Here is the real “new” review:
Child of God 05/01/2012
My family attended this church for several years. Newly walking in the faith when I first came to this church made me very susceptible to the legalistic views presented by pastor chuck o’neal as the very words of God. We were discouraged from having friends who were not attendees, questioned if we missed any sunday services at all, ordered to quit counseling we were attending (with a Biblical counselor!) and yet we were not offered any alternative counseling, and told that any problems (financial, etc) we were experiencing were a direct fallout of not attending every wednesday and additional sermons on sunday (after the church services, from 1-3pm). At the time we had small children and this was not always an option. When we choose to leave, we also were shunned, other congregants were told we were in unrepentant sin, and close friends were forbidden to talk to us or would face church discipline. Very sad. Fortunately, our story isn’t as tragic as some others because this did not lead us to question God, only Chuck.
