Juanita Bynum Payes Her Property Taxes!

Prophetess Juanita Bynum has paid her taxes and will not have her property sold, much to the chagrin of all of the online heresy hunters and pulpit pimp watchers! This lady has been attacked so harshly by so many who were supposed to be of the church. Maybe she did get a little off base, but the level of the attacks against her were uncalled for and many of them were very mean spirited. Wouldn’t it be amazing if she comes out of this situation with even more influence and popularity? Juanita Haters please go mind your own business and your own problems please!

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported the following:

Prophetess Juanita Bynum said Friday she has paid the delinquent property tax on her $4.5 million compound in Waycross, where officials had threatened to auction the property.Bynum said at a press conference that the debt was an oversight.

Nevertheless, Ware County tax officials say they are depositing Bynum’s check for more than $33,000 but they don’t intend to take her property off the market until they are sure the payment is good. An additional $300 is still owed on the property.

“I’m not taking it out of tax sale until the check clears the bank,” said Ware County tax commissioner Steve Barnard. “It takes about a week.”

Barnard said Bynum’s representatives have agreed to pay the $300 shortfall.

Bynum is seeking a tax exemption on the property and hopes to recoup the tax payment in the future, she said.

The 30-acre compound with a lake view in South Georgia was purchased to house the headquarters of Juanita Bynum Ministries and the Mt. Olive Country Spa for women seeking pampering, prayer and spiritual guidance.

Bynum said her lawyers have applied for a tax exemption on the property, but the deadline for the property taxes came before the paperwork was complete. The pastor said she had put $5,000 down on the tax bill earlier but was advised by her attorneys not to pay the full bill until the exemption came through.

Earlier this week, the property was scheduled for auction for non-payment of taxes. Barnard filed a lien against the compound on June 7 because $32,007.56 in 2006 property taxes had not been paid. According to the lien, a $3,200 penalty and $2,240 in interest also is owed.

Bynum provided a copy of her receipt to reporters that showed $38,904.15 had been paid on the account.

“The word of God tells me my integrity shall preserve my inheritance,” Bynum said. “I am not going to lose anything.”

Article on Online Heresy Hunters, Pulpit Pimp Hunters, and Preacher Bashers!

I read an awesome article in Ministry Today Magazine by Pastor Dave Cannistraci! This article is on the many Online Heresy Hunters,Pulpit Pimp Hunters, and Preacher Bashers Online! He has written a work that should be shared by many in The Body. It is a splendid read and a must have for every major Christian Church and every major Christain Media Ministry in the world! It helped me to understand why I am being attacked by a few strange acting individuals, one of whom is an alleged small time kid’s tennis instructor in Greece who masquerades as a theologian, who doesn’t even know me. It’s one thing to fight for a cause, but it’s another to fight just because. I don’t refute all of their stances on the many excesses and problems in The Body of Christ, but I refute the spirit in which they take most of their stances! Many of these online bashers are sowing disunity in the Body! What do you think? Well here’s a few excerpts from the article:

The War on Error

By David Cannistraci

Are online heresy hunters bringing needed correction in the church or sowing disunity?

Infidels beware: A new generation of crusaders is on the march, ignoring history’s warnings about the damage unrestrained spiritual zeal creates. Their mission? To protect us all from religious fraud and dangerous doctrines by investigating and exposing those who push past the accepted boundaries of conservative evangelicalism. They have pledged themselves to defend truth and liberate the kingdom of God from the threat of apostasy. From discernment ministries to watchdog groups to bloggers to anonymous Web site commenters, the Internet has created a breeding ground for unbridled criticism. Though truth and correction are essential to the health of the church, this new wave of heresy hunters may be taking things too far. Their targets are not the likes of David Koresh or Jim Jones—we would thank them for that. Instead, they’re aiming at many of today’s most popular charismatic Bible teachers, including Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen and T.D. Jakes.

These zealous soldiers of orthodoxy aren’t afraid to fight dirty, either. Armed with ample evidence to prove their case, they quote, deride and scoff at any ministry they “discern” as dangerous. In this biblical blitzkrieg, no question is too trivial, no accusation too personal and no ridicule too cruel.
