Court of Appeals Hears Case of C&MA Church Hijacking
The Bergen Record, which has been doing an ongoing series on the C&AM bullying tactics and lawsuit to seize the church property and assets of a local church in Paramus, New Jersey, just reported on this case which just went before the New Jersey Court of Appeals on September 19, 2012. The courtroom was packed in like sardines on the side of Christian Firefighter, Pastor Joe Smaha, and members and friends of Community Church of Paramus, and reporters form the Media, such as Karen Sudol, and Dave Tombers of the national World Net Daily. The only people supporting the prosecutor’s side were C&MA Metro District Superintendent Bruce Terpsra and his Attorney Hopkins. Each side was given 15 minutes to present their case, but were given much more time.

Paramus Church’s Case Rests with Court
By Karen Sudol
The Christian & Missionary Alliance is one of the most predatory denominations in America, suing and seizing one local church after another, in District after District. Their consciences have been seared by a hot iron. One more example is the recent case in California…see story at:
Do members in the C&MA churches around the country know that their tithes and offerings are going to C&MA District Superintendents to finance the lawsuits against their own brothers and sisters in Christ? (Of course NONE of these funds are available to the C&MA victim churches to pay their legal costs). The C&MA is guilty of the same sins of Hophni & Phinehas in Samuel 2:11-36. Like this account in Scripture, the C&MA effectively tells local churches: “Give us your offering [church], or we will take it by force!” The Lord judged Hophni and Phinehas with a death sentence! The Lord will judge Bruce Terpstra, Ed Malick and the rest of the C&MA leadership. Also see “Reversionary Clause, License to Steal” at:
