Chuck O’Neal and Beaverton Grace Bible Church to host Jeremiah Cry Ministries “The Soul Winner” conference. O’Neal will be speaking as well as Open Air Preacher Tony Miano.
What a combination: a suing pastor and open air preacher who behaves like the “spirit of Westboro” speaking on soul winning. The conference is May 7-9, 2015 at my former church.
This is Miano’s style of “soul winning.” It sure looks like his goal is to intentionally offend:
We all remember he calls this evangelizing, too:
Patterns Abusers Use: Image Control
Does anyone else find it strange that during this week of the Jeremiah Conference, my former pastor’s blog in which he fabricates all kinds of stories about me is mysteriously gone?
Me thinks he is trying to clean up his image.
A little background for those who don’t know the story. I was sued by Pastor Chuck O’Neal of Beaverton Grace Bible Church on February 22, 2012. Two months later, April 19, four domain sites were purchased using a similar web address to my old blog: BGBCSurvivors. Buying four similar domains already in use is a tactic employed by dishonest people who are attempting to “phish” traffic to their site. There are legal cases involving this activity.
Dee of The Wartburg Watch blog covered this story:
Charles (Chuck) O’Neal – the Beaverton pastor who sued Julie Anne Smith, her daughter, and others for defamation – together with other church leaders, has launched a website called True BGBC Survivors: Surviving Four Years of Hate, Reviling Accusations, and Criminal Slander. If you’ve been reading here, you will remember Chuck as the pastor who sued former church members for $500,000. The story went viral and was covered by news outlets around the globe.

This is not the first time O’Neal has tried to clean up his image. His church blog was redone and looks much more family friendly. Another example is his Twitter profile. This is what his Twitter profile looked like during the lawsuit:
He later “cleaned” it up to look like this:
Chuck O’Neal’s blog “True BGBC Survivors” was activated with its first posts on December 2, 2012, some four months after he lost the defamation lawsuit and:
Announcements, such as on Twitter, that this new blog had been launched showed up as early as December 10, and some comments were posted the next day. (Source)
This “business” card was also on the “impostor” blog. Below is a screenshot that I took from the original site. These were cards that Chuck O’Neal’s wife, Tonya, printed -5,000 cards! Cards were placed on parked cars in shopping malls and even at a church where several former members were worshipping. The church security personnel had to quickly scour the parking lot to remove the business cards from the cars. If memory serves, they collected over 200 cards. This is how my pastor and his wife and church members behave. Below is a screenshot from the now-removed blog:
That brings me to another notable pattern I’ve seen before: trolls. Those of us who have maintained survivor blogs know that trolls come and attempt to create division. I also suspect their goal is to keep me distracted from blogging, because the blog and my readers’ insightful comments are a threat to their “ministry.”
Yesterday, SSB commenter, Sage, came to the blog and commented these :::::cough, cough:::::: kind words about me:
You and many of your followers are akin to Jezebel. You are a bully. A liar. A twister of scripture. You openly mock, question and condemn believers you know almost nothing about. You take people’s word who believe as you do as the gospel truth, without ever realizing their motives or questioning their charachter [sic].
I know for a fact there are outright lies told here. Whether she is so blinded by her hatred for the standard christian faith and it’s teaching, especially on male & female teaching, or because she does not do due dilegence [sic]- either way she is at fault for speaking evil of men and women of the christian [sic] faith who she says she shares faith with but does not follow the scriptures in how she treats them or handles disputes. She is at fault for the outright lies told time and time again.
I highly suspect that Sage was sent my way to distract me from the upcoming conference. Sorry, Sage, your behavior outs you.
