A MAJORITY of the members of the Sanctor church – also known as PE Tabernacle – are shocked at the citations from papers before the court filed by their pastor Peter Robert Twynham.
The concerned believers held a meeting to discuss the report – "Tax evasion claim a plot, says pastor” – which appeared in The Herald of January 10. The congregants are saddened by a lot of statements made by the pastor against Quintin Isaacs.
The question now is: why has the pastor not made use of the church’s internal disciplinary procedures to bring his allegations against Isaacs, a faithful member and trustee of the church? Why should we read in the newspapers of the "dirty linen” of Isaacs, a member of our church?
The pastor has an obligation towards his congregation to call a special general meeting to inform the church of happenings in the church.
The question beckons, who gave the pastor a mandate to use the name of the church in his papers filed before court?
Similarly, he did not have a mandate from the church to employ the services of armed security guards for the church.
The church is a communal property for all its congregants.
The pastor acts as a dictator and does not subject himself to church protocol and procedures.
We reject all actions taken on our behalf for which no mandate has been obtained.
Late last year we held a special general meeting to address the stifling crisis in church where he could have addressed his congregants but instead his action to walk out of the meeting has left us very disappointed.
Isaacs, according to the majority of the church, will remain innocent until proven otherwise by our church structures.
