Like I said before, these pastors, so called men of God are some of the biggest crooks and con men out there, maybe less than 10% of them actually believe in what they say and are good men, the rest just found a way to get rich off of suckers. 

SkepticalI agree ,but I'm willing to bet that less then 2% live by what they'd preach to others

    Miss Holmes has done some dumb things, but i'm on her side with this. This fraud man of God needs to just go away. If this man wasn't planning to scheme why would he record their conversation on the sly? What kind of Minister does this? However, I wouldn't be surprised if she loses this case since i've seen other bogus cases result in wins for the huckster.

      This  pastor sounds like one of those TV preachers who's always talking about strangers giving them a million dollars as per God's instructions even if they can't pay their rent.  Since races are mostly segregated in SC, I doubt if she even attends his church or know any of his followers.

        Many years ago the church received a lot of ground by testaments. Some say that a few testaments must have been forced and others disappeared. It would be fun to know what the church(es) own(s), does anybody have  their balance sheet(s)?

            This is crazy, a pastor claiming that he wants to what GOD has asked him to do.  Well, as a pastor he should know that if GOD wanted him to do that, provisions will be made for him to do that (build a retreat).  I'm appalled that a pastor would except gambling money, knowingly.

            Hi!

            Nothing stops God's plan (when it is truly His plan).

            If God is in it, and the funds did not come from one source, surely it would come from another.

            God has unlimited resources and His ways of providing does not involve stress....or anxiety.

                    You would right except that she promised it and he went and put up money on her word to buy the land. AND the minister has a 3 hour recording to the facts that verify everything he says. So for once I actually believe this minister only because he has a 3 hr recording. And that will be held up in court and she will owe it a verbal contract is as good as a written contract especially with the recording she has no recourse. She bails out a drug dealer time and time again but to do some good she decides to go back on her word

                      So this Pastor is giving Maria 3 options- all starting from a million dollars &  climbing.  Tell you what Francis, if l was inclined to contribute towards  your church, l would be purchasing the plot of land, you not going to hold any of the cash- end of story.Why on earth is he promising money to others when he himself has none?

                      Btw- is it not illegal to record someone without their consent?

                        Some states allow one sided agreement to record not for two party consent. Not sure about that state.

                          But are you not supposed to tell the person being recorded that you are or intent to record the conversation? Sounds like a sting operation on the part of the Man of the Cloth. Modern day Gehazi.

                            First off: God does not get frustrated or sue people when he does not get what he wants. Second: he does not need Money. Francis is acting independently. Francis is probably thinking that if Marie Holmes can shell out millions to bail " Hot Sauce" out- what stopping Pastor F from going after another $10 mil- easy come easy go. He could play the " Do you love Hot Sauce more than God?" What's holding you back girl?

                              SMH, from the sound of the recording Holmes sounds like someone easy to con, it sounded like she meant well. No one should be conned by anyone especially using religion. If he wasn't a pastor and a man claiming to be would your views change. She gave the church she attended money, is that not generous!?!? Let's also use rape to discuss what happened, if someone says yes to sex and the other gets frustrated because now the person is saying no. Should you be able to take someone to court for that. Just wow, when decides to hate nothing can change their idea of someone. Her money overall, her business!
