If you needed knee surgery, would you go to a podiatrist? If you needed your tonsils removed, would you allow a cosmetic surgeon to do the job? Duh! The questions sound ridiculous and stupid right? So why did Pastor James MacDonald and Harvest Bible Chapel hire an attorney who specializes in DUI’s (Driving Under the Influence) to file a lawsuit about libel and “deceptive trade”? Must be a special kind of stupid.
Why didn’t they use their in-house counsel, Chris Nudo? Who by the way was the attorney who filed the previous lawsuit against the Evangelical Christian Credit Union about a month before this lawsuit. You know, the lawsuit Harvest has hid from their members. Wasting and abusing donations. Or why didn’t they use the law firm of Di Monte & Lizak? A firm that Chris Nudo’s father, Dennis Nudo works for. This firm handles business litigation and is certainly much better equipped to handle a case such as this. Instead they hired Michael J. Young, a DUI extraordinaire. Again, must be a special kind of stupid.
How about the possibility that Pastor James MacDonald and the elders of Harvest Bible Chapel knew when they filed their unbliblical lawsuit that it would never go to trial? There are a couple things you can bet on. First is that Pastor James MacDonald is not using a 3rd rate anything. If he does it, he is going to do it right. He is going to get the best. Secondly, as I have stated in a previous post, there is no way that James MacDonald or the elders of Harvest Bible are ever going allow their books to be opened for review. They have and will continue to do everything in their power to keep their financials secret. Nor are they going to allow Pastor James, or the leaders and elders of Harvest Bible Chapel to take the stand. If they allowed that, the corruption inside of Harvest Bible Chapel would be exposed.
Hiring a DUI attorney isn’t the only head-shaking, special kind of stupid actions on behalf of Pastor James MacDonald and Harvest Bible Chapel. Both lawsuits, hiding one of the lawsuits and thinking no one would never find out about it, attempting to spin where the money is coming from to pay for the lawsuits so it doesn’t look like they are abusing the donations anymore than they have been for years, thinking that no one would figure out that the intent was only to bully and never to go to trial, thinking that no one would ever figure out the plan to apologize and pretend to be sincere after dropping the lawsuit and using God as a pawn in it, trying to use his sermons to plant seeds that they are handling this Godly and the opposition they are receiving is evil, and worst of all; distorting and blaspheming God’s word! All are evil and a special kind of stupid.
So when the day comes that Pastor James MacDonald and the elders of Harvest Bible Chapel drop the lawsuit, puts on his best sad, humble face and states “God has been working on my heart and letting me know that He is in charge and that He is going to handle this. He has convicted my heart and we are dropping the lawsuit”, how many people are actually going to believe him? If this was the plan all along, and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that it has been, than those words (or anything resembling those words) are hollow and a complete lie. A sham. A setup. A hypocrisy. A fraud. And, an abomination to God.
