News: Open Forum…Bethel Church (Pastor is Bill Johnson) is why I chose to leave Redding, California

Long time residents are exiting Redding, California due to Bethel Church corruption

In this new article from the San Francisco Chronicle, a former 50-year resident of Redding, California and licensed clinical social worker explains why she made the choice to leave Redding.  This says a lot:

“I recently chose to leave Redding after nearly 50 years in this community, where I raised my family and where many I love remain. I left almost entirely because of Bethel and the city’s passive complicity in the real factors that ail Redding.  Did you wonder why Bethel gave $500,000 for law enforcement but not homeless shelters…did anyone ask what happens to the hundreds of people who come from all over the world to have their serious mental or medical illness “healed”? When they don’t believe “strongly enough” to be healed, they end up on the streets of Redding, sick, alone and far from home. Please do some research.  Begin with the “seven mountain mandate,” which teaches that the church should take control of seven important aspects of society, and the New Apostolic Reformation (a growing movement in the U.S.). Review Bethel’s history in the nearby community of Weaverville (Trinity County). Look at the net worth of Bethel’s leader, Bill Johnson. Ask some questions. Find the answers.” (Roxanna Zalesny; Emphasis mine)

Also, in a previous article, it is noted that many of the town’s residents are not happy with the cult.  That is, a cult which looks eerily similar to Scientology and disregards healthy separation of church and state.  The article explains:

“Suffice it to say that church leadership rake in untold millions of tax-deducted dollars. Apparently, leader Bill Johnson’s wife, his two sons and their wives are all on the payroll.  Bethel Church is the perfect example of why churches should be required to file the same annual reports as every other nonprofit organization. It won’t happen because Congress is scared to death of Christianity, Inc.”
