Dr. Gene Scott Dead at 75


Pasadena Star-News – News First the good doctor Hunter S. Thompson and now the crazed out whacked in the head enigmatic mega broadcaster doctor Gene Scott is gone.

For those of you who were never bored enough to actually sit through any of Dr. Scott’s television, and that is probably most of you, he was a sight to see. Dr. Scott was a megalomaniac who would smoke cigars, talk about UFOs and the Lost Tribe, berate his audience for not sending enough money in, and come up with complex graphical biblical teaching on a big white dry erase board. When he got tired of talking he’d run video loops of his horses running around or other similar nonesense.

Dr. Scott was the pastor of the Los Angeles University Cathedral but he was so much more than this. In the past few decades most televangelists have been easily identifiable as cheap hucksters and hypocrites with very simple business models that prey on the weak — folks like Jim Bakker, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and Jimmy Swaggart. Dr. Scott preyed on the weak as well but he was never as easy to figure out and remained a constant enigma to those who might run across him while channel surfing UHF back before cable or satellite tv. He was a Stanford educated preacher who definitely had more than a few screws loose.

Dr. Scott was very direct in his request for money. He oftentimes would punish his viewers by refusing to talk until a certain amount of money was sent in. It was comedic. He would say the most outrageous things in his bully like demands for people to give up their money. You were definitely going to hell if you didn’t give and your place in heaven was largely a determination of how much you gave.

Rotten.com has a pretty good bio on the doctor that includes some classic quotes:

“A skinflint may get to Heaven, but what awaits him are a rusty old halo, a skinny old cloud, and a robe so worn it scratches. First-class salvation costs money.”

“I want 300 people to give $1,000 by June 30 to humiliate Satan’s efforts to destroy us,” Dr. Scott commanded in a Web site missive. “I also want 700 to commit to $10,000 by Christmas. I’ve been trying to lighten the staff load for five years! I won’t take responsibility for things I have no assurance I’ll ever see!”

Dr. Scott railed against the FCC, told jokes, played the saxophone and showed off video footage of him sitting poolside with bikini clad women along with his horses. His program was broadcast in eight languages and in 180 countries. He broadcast 24 hours a day throughout the world and more recently had set up a live internet stream. I’m not quite sure why he was never able to crack cable or satellite tv more significantly but he was the master of the crazy obscure OTA programming.

Dr. Scott was a character. Though the world may indeed be a better place without him one can’t help but chuckle at his antics and weird behavior that was the sideshow along the way as he ripped off his flock.

    Dr. Scott fought prostate cancer since 2000 that had metastasized throughout his body, he finally died February 21, 2005 after much pain. He is survived by his wife Melissa Pastore-Scott aka Barbi Bridges, whom he married in 2000. Mrs. Scott, whose background is in the adult entertainment industry, is now the pastor of Dr. Scott’s church. You can catch her preaching every Sunday at 11 a.m. from Dr. Scott’s website.

    Gene Scott was the quintessential abusive father living out his free-for-all verbal assaults and directives to all the willing, daddy-seeking unfortunates who took him seriously.

    He was a prick and proud of it, but never achieved the “real” fame he selfrighteously demanded that he unconditionally deserved, nor the academic parity he so often paraded with his “…I have a PhD. from Stanford” claim that he reinforced at every possible opportunity in a futile attempt to elevate his credibility when the rhetoric got just a bit dry.

    “Forever acknowledge and worship my every idiosyncrasy,” is what he demanded of his non-academically oriented followers as long as they kept writing those checks. But in the end, he proved himself to be just a bad, public-access level celebrity perpetually pissed that the elite didn’t see in him the genius that only HE saw in himself.

    To the rest of us, he was immensely entertaining because he was great TV. All in all though, he was just a hick huckster from Oroville trying unsuccessfully to play in Hollywood’s hipper sandbox, but never wanted to play with the other kids because his true social ineptness would too easily expose his inner greed-driven weakness.

    The remarks left by some of the posters here are not appreciated by those of us who knew him well, as members of his congregation. Gene Scott was the ablest teacher of the Word of God in this century and a great treasure was taken out of the world when God took him home– in no pain, he had a series of strokes and passed within a week, while the other intermittent besetting health problems he had were all in remission. Dr. Gene Scott had a real diploma from Stanford U., a doctorate in philosophies of education, and I have read his doctoral dissertation on Reinhold Niebuhr on the nature of sin. Only ignoramuses spout off nonsense about his doctorate like I’ve seen posted here. It’s for real. Another thing — Gene never took a penny from anyone he didn’t teach and made sure of that by instructing all that he taught NOT to give unless HE taught them. Any verbal browbeating was designed to DRIVE AWAY the weakminded, not bully them into giving. There isn’t an organization in the entire world whose members could ever be threatened into giving by the threat to withhold teaching God’s Word which is just as likely to discomfit as it is to enthrall. Only people who truly love God and His word would feel that pressure — the rest of the world would never be affected by it, and no one who is mentally weak can be a faither and a giver solely in response to teaching about God, with the only reward being eternal and granted by the Father in heaven.

    Well what can I say, the person from his congregation said it all. I think , having followed him for years that he had a gift. The unfortunate thing here is that some of his behavior was not a good witness of what he was preaching. The bible states that a teacher is held to a harder standard”. He did not like that..he made some comments that were wrong as we all do. However, having said that, I think its a reproach to the Lord to have his wife who was a PORN star that to my knowledge has not repented or explained to her church and was still running one of her businesses till 2003, and they have been married since 2000.

    You know that there was much talk about his lifestyle,his prode and his arrogance…let me ask you is that fruit of the spirit? I mean God can use any of us..and will use the things that we cannot understand to confound the wise…but God is not Mocked..nor his word. I think its horrible that his church is having to go whta they are going thru now, and I think may people are not exactly happy with Melissa preaching and taking over….and really what background does she have X PORN star??? Then there was talk about her father and his dealings in Canada. Church, let us make sure we are not deceived…..

    I found Gene Scott a helluvalot more interesting when first coming upon his show back in 1982. The arrival of his Barbie Doll and her Las Vegas Review [couple of girlfriends] sometime around the early to mid 1990’s left me non-plussed, to say the least. I couldn’t quite figure out what all the bicycle riding was about, but with the gradual weeding out of the chorus line, and the narrowing down to the one, Ms. Melissa, complete with the filming of his proposal to her, albeit from a safe distance and surrounded by a shady glen, I gradually came to understand. I can’t say that I was a believer, but I sure was an observer, over time. His show helped fill the time gap during which the 11:00 Nightly News could be avoided in favor of a little jazzed-up, dressed-down, old-time religion with a twist of modern logic. I originally thought his church was an outreach program for the inhabitants of Skid Row in downtown L.A., but eventually changed my mind while catching the equestrian segments that began showing up during his pledge drives. Plus, the fact that he played great musical sound tracks for the background on his videos, which were actually set in beautiful scenes of ranchlands and California’s countryside, which over time, I began to recognize was most likely his spread of property, on which those earlier bicycle soirees had been filmed. But, what I think I most vividly remember were his verbal castigations of his staff and some of their on-sight terminations of employment. This lead me to the supposition that after acquiring a taste for Havana Creams, equestrian trails and properties, and maybe a few Las Vegas showgirls, you’d probably have a tendency to want to protect those high-end accoutrements, and vested interests. No more need for the small-time, low-budget, slow-witted-reflexed hangers-on from the lean years. No sirree.
    Only techno-professionals need apply in the 21st Century. Yet, I was truly sorry to hear that prostate CA had been diagnosed. Because, despite all the major acquisitions he had made for his church, his beloved library with every bible, and religious artifact he was able to purchase in the name of educating his congregation in the life of Christ and all languages of the gospels, the old United Artists building housing his University Ministry, those lives in his congregation he was able to turn around for the better, his beautiful spread of California ranchland…he was still unable to save his own life and therefore ended up succumbing to his own mortality. For that, he will be sorely missed. I feel very sorry for the people who’ve depended upon him for their own salvation. Here was a person who finally seemed to be coming into his own. He was watching his dreams finally come to fruition.
    As far as Melissa is concerned, she should get a voice coach, as well as a drama coach, the first so that she may be able to sustain singing on-key because she definitely has a tendency to go flat at least once in each line. Try cupping your hand over your good ear while singing, Melissa, so you can hear yourself when your voice goes off-key. And, secondly to be able to project a more convincing personna on-stage. And for God’s sake, an image specialist, who’ll style her image with a little more attention toward depth of character and credibility. You’re in the big leagues now, and if you’re going to play ball, you better know how to play it hard. Also, a course in economics, both Micro and Macro, might help you understand the mechanizations involved in the successful operation of the empire that’s just been left to you.
    Best wishes and good luck.

  12. Dr. Gene Scott died in Glendale Adventist Hospital from complications
    of end stage prostate adenocarcinoma.
    First diagnosed in October 2000 when
    it was small and confined to the prostate, it was known to be histologically the most aggressive
    form. Gene Scott declined removal
    of his prostate at that time although
    it carried a high liklihood of ten
    year survival with prostatectomy.

    Based on lowered post biopsy PSA levels, masked by a hormone laced
    herbal preparation, Gene Scott claimed
    to have been healed by faith. He
    stopped having check ups.

    Four years later, after five months
    of persistent nausea, Gene Scott’s
    check up found Grade IV metastatic prostate cancer. His kidneys were blocked with cancer that had also
    spread to his bladder, ureter and
    bone. Too weak for full therapy,
    and no longer a surgical candidate,
    Gene Scott succumbed to advancing
    cancer unresponsive to end state
    efforts to slow the progression.
    He developed blood clots, cardiac
    failure and infections in his
    lungs and urinary systems.

    Strokes were the final events putting
    him into a terminal coma. Multiple
    organ failure less to life support
    and finally expiration.

    His widow, Melissa Scott, the former
    Melissa Pastore, succeeded him as the
    only pastor of the Los Angeles University Cathedral and church which
    is run as a corporation without members.
    Melissa Scott maintains that Gene Scott was healed of the first cancer and that
    his breath was taken away and he was healed “over there.”

    Dr. Gene Scott and his surviving wife, Pastor Melissa Scott have preyed on the weak and gullible, holding their eternal life hostage for money, free servitude, and blind obedience.

    A cornerstone to the Scott brand of brainwashing is isolation, by occupying follower’s minds with guilt driven
    24 hour a day watching of their teachings, tithes and offerings of 30% of income, and tithing time of 17 hours a week volunteering for their ministry enterprises.

    Their messages are heavily laden with servitude of their pastor, touted as the only one looking after the souls of the faithful. Dr and Mrs Scott promote idolizing and serving them, holding themselves out as spiritually superior while humiliating their faithful. Double standards, deceit, and hypocrisy abound as they pay lip service to the Word. It’s a well oiled dictatorship
    that bans discussions and questions.

    I do not know what God will do to Gene Scott in heaven. I know that none of us are perfect, and the ones that think they are were the ones killing people with perfection. Gene was always to lib for thaT. God is a God of a second chance. I was ready to give up but one night late I cought Gene scott on my 10 foot dish in 1982, I changed my mind about giving up that week. I would go to church and get beat to death and pounded by the preacher, then I would listen to Gene and recover and remeber what Jesus did on the cross for me. I did not have to live some pole vault religion were they keep raising the bar on me. God is a God of mercy and maybe he will forgive Gene Scott, I know what ever God does to Gene for giving poor sinners hope it will be just. I never sent he much money I only sent him money twice and it was not much money at all. I remeber one knight late he said I don’t know about you people you got to be crazy sending me money, there must be somthing wrong with you if you are sending me money as crazy as I am. Then on the other hand he challanged you if you were tought in the word then what is it worth . For some it may have saved there lives and they may have sent in a lot of money who knows God knows. Love and life is the key. I did not need to be told I was a sinner I knew that. Gene Scott opened the word at times and showed me how to have faith in God the one he has been talking to since Febuary and the one you will be with soon for eternity and that’s a long time. I think we are all crazy but some of us have a gift that helps some of us cope with life, and try to learn to love one another. Gene scott loved the sinner and he was one himself trying to find his way, the money was not the issue, now God may deal with that. The issue is did he help people live and did he love his Lord and the Lords people and I think he showed me he did. God will kill Mallissa to and call her up there to talk with her as God will with all of us. Judge nothing before it’s time it wil be judged very soon for all of us in coparision to eternity and that’s where we are all heading.Some of us will be cast into hell while others of us will go into heaven. It not so much what we did on earth is did we seek God with all of our minds soul and body, did we accept Jesus as our lord and savior, and did we love every one sinner and saint. I think Gene may have done that but I don’t know God may cast him to hell cause God has the finale word on that.

    I only just found Dr Scott a few weeks ago, and just found out he was dead. It made me sad. I have been uplifted and taught by him, even tho he is gone.
    He has filled in many blanks for me. I don’t care what the religious society thinks or thought about him. He was REAL. Most of them are fake and he exposed that.
    As for Melissa, well, she’s not a great singer, but I don’t think she was there to put on a “show” like all those on the religious church shows. She is just as forgiven as you, by the same standard God uses for all. One of Jesus’ most beloved followers was a former hooker.
    God will have a people, called out from among the religious Babylon, and those who cannot hear or see will always be out front saying the things you have read as here because it is the nature of the beast within them.
    Overcomers will keep marching on, no matter what. That is what Gene preached, and that is what we do.
    Right on, Gene! Thanks.

    hello, this is coming from a girl who’s native country is in EuroAsia in country of Armenia.
    my exposure to Christianity is from the source of Television. In my view, the Scott Ministry is more closely a relative to Reality T.V. in America than any other programming currently playing in the educational category. The Scott Ministry cultivates a reality that fits rightly with beliefs of Modern Day Society and is intellectual completely competent with the currently developing technological systems. In short, Dr. Scott listeners are gifted, provided that they have an ear to listen and an open heart, with the possibilities exceeding the expectations of both what t.v has to offer and what any preacher has ever done or taught the word of the Bible to its students. Dr. Scott has also maintained integrity as well as upgraded his Philosophical System, especially in the last 5 years with singer Melissa Scott as the leading lady. Unlike, other ministries on TBN which cum on as a freak show and extreme hair & make-up and fake hair, causing eye damage, Melissa is tasteful in her appearance. Although you may say that is a subjective opinion, you nevertheless have your choice of believing what is true and correct at all times. Regardless of the reservations you might have in observance of my righteous thought patterns, know this, the tone of some of the commentators on this page, is not appreciated because it does not sound like it is coming out from a non-judgemental place of the mind. I admit I do not find myself drawn to any of this articulate gobble gobble since it does not give me the least freedom to ask: you mean to tell me you want me to bet on it?? P.S. Don’t steal my words. Thank you. gina

    I actually called the “voices of faith” and asked why pastor Melissa Scott wasn’t teaching.I guess she has caved in to the critics.I’m in tears.I support her and I know she got my message.She has gotten a hugh load to do,that’s for sure.She is so beautiful and her mannerisms are so lovingly expressive.Can’t you see the gift that Dr.Scott has given us to
    ponder,admire and share with?I was so thrilled to hear her speak after “Doc”
    passed.She had always only sang.Her tributes to her husband were so real and natural,even with the old videos.I know some of the insides of the ministry and as my daddy said to me,”Son,you can’t live your whole life on B.S.”,so tell me how did this ministry survive?Try by truth.

    I just found out today, 11-03-05 that Gene Scott bit the dust on 2-21-05. What saddens me is the eight months I could have been rejoicing over this event.

    I am writing a book about God’s charlatan. I worked as a musician inside the organization, and my experience nearly cost me my life. In a round-about way, I found God, but it was not through Scott’s teachings! My story is briefly described by Glenn Bunning in his L.A. Times article, “The Shock Jock of Televangism.” I’ve realized how superficial organized Christianity really is…how far-removed from Universal Truth, as it plods its way into each follower’s bank account. How ironic that Scott should croak in the same hospital where I was treated for injuries received in a beating by Joe Henry Shackelford (his chief engineer) and Larry James Dudley (his TV time buyer and local hitman) in 1985.

    Furthermore, I will chronicle, in great detail, the history of Faith Center, Wescott Christian Center, the TV and radio network, the ranches/farms, real estate scams, and all the violence and corruption occured off-camera. I am quite certain that the reader will view Scott’s “teachings” as a smokescreen for his perverted ways.

    Those who have died and miraculously come back describe traveling through a tunnel before seeing a bright light. I am convinced Scott’s “tunnel” was a sewer! In light of this mountebank’s passing, I mourn only the fact that he won’t be able to file his “frivolous lawsuit” against me for libel, defamation, and slander.

    I pity those who think they know all there is to know about this religious pimp, who thought nothing of ruining the lives of those who disagreed with him or witnessed the corruption firsthand. He was skillful, yes, at quoting scripture, and at brainwashing. When the brainwashing did not take root, he used his thugs. Glendale, CA police records detail a long history of violence at Faith Center Church. Scott once quoted (and this was directed to me over the airwaves): “If you’re gonna take on God’s man, you’d better do your homework!” I regret the fact that the “teacher” is not around to grade my paper!

    Funny, some of the ‘experts’ on this string seem to be ‘experts ‘in surfing porn sites,fully knowledgeable of Ms Scott’s co-stars. Yeah, I could have an intelligent conversation with that!! Gene Scott was no more phoney,money hungry or full of “$#!t”, than any other ‘televangelist’. I take it strictly as entertainment. Gene was the king of entertainment, up there with PBS. If so many are upset or didn’t agree with him, then why study him so much? Mainly because you doubt your own faith or favorite telepreacher. Honestly , I’d rather see his congregation watching and shootin’ their $$$ wads on supporting him, than I would 98% or the blatantly greedy big hair,heavy make up crowd deemed obvioulsy as Gene’s competition.

    I studied religion,East & West,even taught Sunday school as a younger man. Get what you can from the bible and make up your own mind. Forget the money mongers that just want big diamonds ,big hair and big gawdy “churches”. Hell, just so I’m not offending anybody, I watch a lot of those kinds of shows and almost feel guilty not sending any cash in for the great laughs. So don’t feel left out if you think I’m defending Gene Scott too much… all of those Bible waving phoneys are the same, Gene ,in my opinion, was just the best. Ernest Angely as a very close second. TBN uses too much hairspray. Maybe that’s how they nail their audiences..the fumes!

    Gene Scott was the only televangelist to gain my respect because he didn’t hide a thing. At least you saw where the money was going. Bless him for having a great time and entertaining us.

    Pastor Melissa Scott is desperately trying to keep the old man’s GAME alive. First by trying to replace him as teacher of the WORD. Now, mainly relying on reminiscing and reruns of the old man to keep the message alive and the money flowing.

    Gene Scott
    (Filed: 26/02/2005)

    Gene Scott, the American television evangelist who has died aged 75, offered his followers all the advantages of Christianity with none of the inconveniences, and thus became immensely rich.

    Scott’s followers were assured that they did not have to go to church on Sunday and that such foibles as homosexuality, adultery, abortion, profanity and drinking were just fine. “I don’t ask you to change,” he told his congregation. “I take you as you are.” He had little time for the conventional pieties. “You ever meet Christians?” he asked. “You wish you could shove a pipe in their mouth. Anything to shut them up.”

    To qualify as a member of his church, the main requirement was a valid credit card, Scott’s aim apparently being to make it richer than the Vatican. “A skinflint may get to heaven,” he admitted, “but what awaits him are a rusty old halo, a skinny old cloud, and a robe so worn it scratches. First-class salvation costs money.”

    Anyone requiring salvation had to hand over 10 per cent of their income. This was a bare minimum. “I want 300 people to give $1,000 by June 30 to humiliate Satan’s efforts to destroy us,” read a recent message on his website. “I also want 700 to commit to $10,000 by Christmas.” He once excomminucated the entire congregation for not giving enough. Those who did not respond to his barked instruction “Get on the telephone!” were told to “vomit on yourself with your head up in the air.”

    His fund-raising efforts were spectacularly successful. Individual donations from his 15,000-strong congregation at the Los Angeles University Cathedral (housed in a Spanish baroque-style former cinema), and from the estimated 50,000 contributors reached through his global broadcasting empire, were said to average $350 a month. In 1980 Werner Herzog made Scott the subject of a documentary, God’s Angry Man, which showed the preacher raising several hundred thousand dollars during a television show lasting half an hour.

    Scott’s appeal lay in his genius as an entertainer. Buccaneering, shaggy-haired and bearded under a bandana or flamboyant hat, he was by turns unpredictable, outrageous, funny and inspired, but always compelling. Fat cigar in hand, his face contorted with rage, he would mix scripture with profanity-laden monologues about the state of the world (“Nuke ‘em in the name of Jesus!” he cried during the Gulf War), punctuated with demands for more money.

    No gimmick was neglected. At church services a rock band would belt out such hymns of praise as “Kill a Pissant for Jesus.” His television shows would sometimes feature “Scott’s Bunnies”, a bevy of female followers in thong bikinis. (He felt he could “probably teach Hugh Hefner a thing or two” about sex.) When he found himself under investigation by the authorities for alleged fraud, he assembled a band of wind-up toy monkeys, then proceeded to smash them to pieces on television with a baseball bat.

    Scott enjoyed a lifestyle that included a chauffeured limousine, a mansion in Pasadena, 24-hour bodyguards, several ranches and a stable of more than 300 thoroughbred horses. It would be easy to dismiss him as a charlatan, yet he also spent lavishly on charity. When the Los Angeles Central Library was damaged by fire, he organised a telethon that raised $2 million, and there were many other examples of well-judged philanthropy. In consequence he acquired powerful friends who were generous with their testimonials.

    During show-downs with the authorities, Scott seldom hesitated to drop a few hefty names to aid his cause. When, during the 1970s, the California Attorney General’s office launched an investigation into Scott’s church (and several others) following allegations of financial malpractice, the investigation was dropped after the state legislature passed a law barring prosecution of civil fraud against tax-exempt religious organisations.

    The son of a travelling preacher, Eugene Scott was born on August 14 1929, at Buhl, Idaho. When he was six, his mother gave birth to premature twins, one of whom died within hours. The following month, Gene began having convulsions and his mother saw a stairway come down from heaven: “Two angels walked down and they stopped in front of Gene,” she recalled later. “I said, ‘Oh no, Lord, you can’t take Gene!’ and they just went around him and picked the baby up.” The surviving twin died but Gene was saved; it was clear that he had been spared for some purpose. Shortly afterwards, the family moved to Gridley in northern California where Gene’s father took over as pastor of an Assemblies of God church after the previous incumbent crucified himself.

    Young Gene was an exceptional student. “Do you know you have a genius for a son?” asked a teacher on his school report. He ended up at Stanford University, where he took a doctorate on the works of the protestant theologian Reinhold Niebuhr in 1957. Despite having no formal training in theology, Scott then taught briefly at a Midwestern Bible college, helped Oral Roberts to establish his university in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and joined his father’s church, the Assemblies of God movement, where he soon established himself as a brilliant preacher and fund-raiser.

    But in 1970, Scott renounced his membership of the denomination to launch his own ministry. Five years later he was invited to take over the Faith Center Church at Glendale, California, an ailing evangelical enterprise which boasted four broadcasting stations and a $3.5 million debt. He agreed on condition the church leaders gave him carte blanche to do what he wanted. To his surprise, they accepted, and he went on to build his huge evangelical empire.

    Scott had several run-ins with the authorities. In 1983 the Federal Communications Commission stripped the church of three broadcast stations after he refused to hand over financial records. Later he frustrated attempts to scrutinise the church’s finances by instructing contributors to sign pledge slips stating that he could spend the money however he pleased.

    When Scott was diagnosed with cancer, he decided to “give God the first shot” before resorting to conventional medicine. By the time it became clear that the Almighty had stayed his hand, it was too late. He died on February 21, and is survived by his third wife, Melissa.

Some speculate that her sex model and dancer mentality is simply transferred to a world wide God show to fleece the flock.

    Last week her attorney Patricia Glaser who has threatened critical congregants from the pulpit publicly defended her partner Terry Christensen who was indicted on federal felony charges for paying the infamous P.I. Pellicano to wire tap and eavesdrop on opposing parties in civil litigation.

    Indictments are hitting close to home to the church Gene Scott built that his widow Pastor Melissa Scott, Barbie Bridges, rules with an iron fist.

Last week, the managing partner Terry Christensen was indicted by a grand jury on federal charges related to secret wiretapping of personal telephones and listening in on private conversations in
    order to gain an advantage in lawsuits. Patricia Glaser, a senior partner in the firm,
    board member and counsel to Melissa Scott’s church, told reporters that her partner is

Melissa Scott has announced sales of real property, Dr. Scott’s limos on e-bay, and removal of bibles from Gene Scott’s prize collection worth millions. Pastor Melissa Scott has publicly announced that the church and the copyrights to Dr. Gene Scott’s recorded teachings belong to her and there are no church members. The lawfirm partner of Melissa Scott’s lawyer, Terry Christensen, was reported in early February 2006, by the Los Angeles Times to have been indicted on federal charges of hiring illegal wiretaps. The church 800 phone lines are answered “Dr. Scott’s line” and the website states that viewers can call or write to Dr. Scott, despite his death a year ago. His passing was reported in the L.A. Times, announced by Mrs. Scott on her network broadcast February 21, 2005.

    Mrs. Pastor Melissa Scott was at San Quentin mens prison last week. Our neighbor’s husband is in there. They have a little girl who idolizes her dad. Our whole town says he isn’t guilty of the crime he was convicted of. There is new evidence we pray will change his sentence, but it takes time. His attorneys are working on it.

    The little girl runs to the mail box every day hoping for a letter from her dad. He tells her how beautiful she is and how he keeps the pictures she draws by his bed side. He tells her to mind her mom and say her prayers. The father tells her to do good in school.

    The wife was telling us how upset their Families of Prisoners group is over Melissa Scott’s visit. She learned Mrs. Melissa Scott was that porn star Barbie Bridges. She watched Melissa Scott on TV the next day. What Pastor Melissa Scott sad about her husband being the worst of the worst broke her heart. She wept for hours. It’s a good thing the daughter didn’t see Pastor Melissa Scott making fun of her daddy’s chapel ceremony and saying the men ought to be put to death fast to save the taxpayers money. Every day counts for this family.

    These men are real people with real lives and real family.

    My neighbor got so upset she screamed “Mrs. Melissa Scott,it is the messed up church, religious system is broke! Keep your opinions on capitol punishment to yourself. My man is not a freak show. How would you like it if your husband Gene Scott was wrongly blamed and thrown in prison for life?”

    He kept it secret at the time also. In the 80s he acted like he was a confirmed bachelor, and that Christine Shaw was just someone he had with him all the time to provide an alibi in case false accusations were ever made against him. I remember hearing him say that as long as he had to have someone with him all the time, it might as well be a woman, because otherwise people would accuse him of being homosexual. So as long as people are going to talk, he might as well make them jealous instead of being laughed at. That’s how he explained it. (Steve)

Indeed I am quite against the free-for all type of nonsense that THIS kind of christianity perpetuates. Dr. Gene Scott was chaotic..and smug..and there was no sense of peace that flowed from him..

    I have watched his wife..and I get the same smug impression. There is no sense of humilty there.

    Although I must say to all of you who want to Slam her for her past…Big deal..So she was involved in adult entertainment..WHY does that matter? Since when are any of you HOLY? Such double standards..

    Christians are to lead a quiet life..and the leaders are not to berate their flocks~But to lay down their lives for them. The lack of modesty..and the lack of elegance is what has muddied this ministry..THE fruit is full of worms..regardless of the intense white board and all the different colored cirlces around the hebrew…

    Scripture says this,..Timothy 1:3-2-3…Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife.( and this does not mean one wife at a time..) temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable,able to teach, not given to drunkeness, not violent, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money…..

    Dr. Scott may have been most sincere in his beliefs..But his way was not humble..He was a man full of pride and contempt for others..Making remarks in the way he did…not self-controlled, but manipulative and damning. I have seen enough of this circus..

    I used to watch Dr. Scott back in the early ’80s when I was in college. Rather that being evil,he was amusing, much like a baby’s atempt at talking. Dr. Scott was a businessman in the capitalistic world of free enterprise. That his business was preaching a bunch of idiotic drivel as interesting and insightful as watching a bowel movement does not vitiate his right to conduct business. Based on hearsay accounts of his material possessions, it would seem he was fairly successful at convincing weak minded people with the intelligence of a comatose kitten to give him money. Insofar as the “doctorate” degree he was so proud of, I would gently remind people of another egomaniacal, pathological hypocrite with a serious personality disorder who also had the title of ” doctor” precede his name; Adolf Hitler.

    What is Melissa’s formal education.
    My grandfather who was an episcopal
    Minister required a collage education. My father took over his ministry when he died but was removed because he did not have the education credentials necessary for the job. As strange as it might seem it really requires an enormas amount of schooling to become an minister. I am curius what background she has as far as schooling.

    It’s abit of a stretch to call Dr. Scotts teachings uninteresting or unintelligent. Questioning the spiritual inegrity is certainly fair. As far as his wife, she may well be saved I guess. She may be so blessed to leave a career in porn behind and be forgiven. But when ranting about being questioned about her living in style on church property, on LIVE TV, any “Pastor” that says “It’s none of your God Damn business where I live, its the LEAST the church can do for me” is not one that I can follow. I think we can all be thankful that her heart as a spiritual leader was exposed so clearly. I’m not perfect but I think I am just in eliminating Melissa Scott as an appropriate teacher in my walk…

    I had to turn it off as her presentation in front of the writing boards was terrible. I found myself out of breathe due to disjointed manner of her talking and speech pattern. Also, she rambled on and on while saying nothing. What a horrible speaker!!

    I’ve only recently came across Pastor Melissa Scott’s broadcasts and it’s put a spark in me that has me reading and questioning my values.

    I’ve never seen Dr. Scotts broadcasts until recently and I must say he was a very knowledgeable and gifted teacher, BUT also a person who traveled the road to glory his way not by the highway.

    AS for Pastor Melissa Scott, after what I’ve read here and a few other sites it seems like being at the Coliseum(sp?)and most everybody is cheering the lions.

    I for one will stand with her …

    What she did before is of no consequence to me, how many of you have talked and judged people before thinking you were doing good , and I bet your shit doesn’t smell either

    I’ve read about her not having a degree in “whatever”, after listening to her teach I find she is far more knowledgeable about scripture than any of her doubters will admit.

    She is trying to fill the “void” left by the passing of her husband, I’m sure those who see the difference are not happy, they want to see and feel like “it used be be” and since it isn’t, it’s all her fault

    I’m sure once Dr. Scott went to his glory(or not) there was plans being set to gain control. She was placed in authority of that church and I’m sure she has shown that she has claws, like any mother protecting her cubs.

    She is going to make mistakes, say the wrong thing, offend some, but its a learning curve, unfortunately(sp) people expect her to be perfect.

    Pastor, may I say, you have a friend in Christ here.

    I had never heard of Dr. Gene Scott until trying to find information on Dr. Melissa Scott, whom I have only recently noticed on late night/very early morning television. I always try to watch for wolves in the sheep pen, so when someone speaks in such a way that they are hard to pin down to a set of beliefs, I investigate.
    The Christian community has little to say, that I can find. (Could be she is not taken seriously). The official website for their ministry has no statement of beliefs, which to me is always suspect. Any Christian should be wary when beliefs are not straightforward and directly stated.
    I wasn’t sure why, rather than simply using translated Scripture (the Bible in some trustworthy English translation) she opts to translate every word herself and give a complete description of it. A good preacher may, on occasion, explain a word here or there from the Greek where it is relevant to the understanding of the passage, or where translations differ. I watched this woman for an hour and have no idea what point she was trying to make, if any, because all she did was translate and tell me not to miss something. After her comment that her congregation which was present as the video was made (for a church service I suppose)was to read the Greek on the board if they could, and she “knew they could”, I was given the impression that the knowledge of language was being used to cloud rather than clarify, leaving anyone watching OR in the congregation who could not follow feeling inadequate to judge and left to trust whatever she said.
    My advice to anyone is never to believe anyone based on reputation or claims, but to test everyone who claims to be a Christian pastor by Scripture. In order to do that you have to study it for yourself, and stop trusting everyone who says they are Christian. The qualifications for a pastor can be found in I Timothy, II Timothy and Titus, if anyone is curious.

I find it appropriate that Time warner who is also the devil in persona, put this woman on the air. I have seen a lot of preaching over the years as I have been a Christian going after God for 20 years now but I have yet to see a fraud like this. I tried desperately to find out where she was going with it and it was like a combination of ping pong and mental masturbation. Tired, disgusted with her pride, and lacking any holy spirit whatsoever, I turned the channel and felt a great ease come over my heart that I did not need to put myself through the torture a second longer. It was tortuous for me as I cannot listen to a mental masturbater, it makes me ill. From first impression, and they are usually good, this woman is a power hungry, head driven, intellectual who will never get to the point because she does not have one. She is hopelessly trying to look smart but does not have enough the holy spirit to even start. Maybe someone should tell her that women are not supposed to teach pulpit, very clearly stated in the new testament by Paul. Maybe she thought to skip that part.

    I remember watching Dr. Scott back in ’82 or ’83 when cable TV was just coming out. He used to light his cigars with a hand grenade lighter. He would say that if you learn from him you owe your tithe or whatever to him and it was none of your business what he did with it as that was between him and God. Well, if you believe in all that, I suppose he had good points.

    It would seem that Melissa forgot to read ALL of her Bible.

    See, for a typical Fundementalist Preacher, spouting against the Catholic Church, and claiming the Bible as the ONLY revealed truth, she fails to obey a tenent of that foundation:

    Women are not supposed to preach . . . period!

    Or, does she just figure those words by the Apostle Paul were “from that era”, and not relevant?

    If so, (and she would be correct), then can she also make the application of “from that era” to other teachings in the Bible?

    I do not care if she was a porn star. If she truly turned her life around, by giving it to Jesus, then by all means, she is “one of us”, Baptized into the Body of Christ!

    However, standing behind the title of ‘Reverend” or even having a Doctorate in Theology, does not a preacher, make.

I feel sorry for him because I believe that there was the potential for greatness there, but in the end he is taking precious souls to hell with him, and that is fucking chilling!

    Y’all are killing me. I used to watch G.Scott back in the early 80’s and got more than one laugh at his antics. I just recently realized that his show was still on about a month ago. I thought M. Scott was his daughter or something! You go boy!

    Anyway, all this talk about him/her is ridiculous. All organized religion — and that include Christianity (in it’s hundred’s of forms), Islam, Judaism, etc — are nothing more than man’s attempt to control others…especially those who have no mind of thier own and feel the need to be part of the herd. It has been very successful. As a Deist, we believe there is a Supreme Being, we’re just not arrogant enough to say things like, “There’s only one Truth and here it is in this box. Those who don’t agree will go to hell!” Prove that exists BTW — just so ya know, traditional Judaism has no concept of eternal damnation and Satan is considered a member of G-d’s court in good standing. Sheol does NOT mean hell nor does Gehenna in the NT. Christianity is the “completion” of Judaism? Not so much.

    Pretty much all these TV preachers are phoneys and their followers are dupes. The same can be said for pastors of large churches…and small. They are no different than the Ayatollas and Imams in the Middle East. They just smile a lot more. Maybe instead of worrying about what G and M Scott say or do, you should concern yourself with you first. We Deist’s (aka Theistic Agnostics), don’t have time to look at other’s versions or application of the “truth”. We’re too busy trying to figure it out for ourselves.

    Dr Gene Scott led the pack in pretense of being for God while robbing viewers. Only he, and now Pastor Melissa Scott aka Barbie Bridges take total control of a person’s time and finances. Gene and Melissa Scott expect their following to watch them and listen to them on the radio, satellite dish, TV and internet 24/7 when they’re not in church or volunteering for Gene and Melissa Scott. They demand tithes of 26 to 30% if you are really righteous, plus offerings and some months double portions plus offerings for their birthdays. But Gene and Pastor Melissa Scott ban celebrating the brith of Christ because he was born in September not December.

    Gene and Melissa Scott stand out for damnding your bottom dollar, the title to your home, cars and boats, for you to give up your favorite items to them, all of course in the name of your spiritual growth. Gene and Pastor Melissa Scott are unique in their despicable demands for welfare checks, thousands of dollars towards secrets on your credit cards, and will take your child’s last food dollar. All in the name of faith. And don’t expect to get anything from them in return, like a thank you or a blessing or a prayer. From Dr. Gene and Pastor Melissa Scott, that costs extra. You’ll get your rewards over there, that is, if Dr. Gene is really standing their beside God telling him who was naughty and who was nice and Pastor Melissa Scott gives a report on you to Gene Scott.

    Other televangelists are content to tell you to send whatever you can, or to go to the cookie jar and pull out a ten or twenty. They ask you to buy a prayer cloth or a CD of gospel music and say that this is how they keep their programs on. It’s a love gift or support not a form of worship. Dr. Gene and Melissa Scott demand you worship them by sending them money PAYABLE IN THEIR NAME PERSONALLY for them to squandor as they choose.

    Those who defend misguided Dr Gene Scott and Pastor Melissa Scott and showing their ignorance of the gospel.

That’s an egregious misuse of scripture to share with pastors so that they can be supported, not enriched, and devote their time and lives to ministering to the congregation. It is not so pastors can spend church time and money employing lawyers to threaten dissenters with legal actions, to abuse parishoners with spiritual damnation and to squandor the offerings and tithes on covering up their personal public sins.

    I read through all the comments. I came across Dr. Gene Scott back in the late 70’s and while I did not watch regularly, I watched often enough that I got the jest that his ways were out of the norm. Recently, I discovered his replays of his later days and his new wife Melissa Scott. I found some sermons of his to be intriguing, and hers rather difficult to follow. However, here in was my concerns. First, every time I called the 800 number, and I did so numerous times, I could get NO information and everyone was very rude. In fact, I was actually hung up on. It is answered as her answering service? One time I was told I would get a call back. I did not expect Melissa Scott to call me, but I thought someone would at least call and give me information. But no one ever did. I asked about the King’s House. I still do not understand what it is. All I was told was you had to have a number and watch the show 2 times a week and call in. I asked if they had computers so they could pull up those numbers and what exactly was one to report on. I still have no clear answers. I was seriously considering sending in a few dollars but felt I needed to wait. Then I heard Melissa Scott say one night “You send your money and it is not anyone’s business how it spent.” She also stated that Dr. Gene Scott ordained her Pastor. I found that disturbing also. I began to research further. I don’t care what her past is, because we are forgiven. I do care if she is still affliated in anyway with the former sites and receives royalties, etc. I don’t care if she has a degree or that she teaches as long as God has set her apart to do so. While there are learning curves, there are some things that are basic to Christanity as to how leaders are servants and not the other way around. The reports that are posted are disturbing in that area. Since I am off in Tennessee, I have not witnessed anything first hand but I do know that enough red flags have come up that it has curtailed any active involvement for me. I am more concerned about the people who have been hurt or wounded and would turn away from the Lord or not come to Him at all due to this mess. I am not going to judge their hearts, but I can examine their fruits.

    I have not seen Gene Scott’s teachings. I have, however, seen Pastor Melissa Scott. I would remind each and everyone of you who are interested in learning the gospel, the “truth” and the “Word” to exercise discernment. What one was is irrelevant. We are to “judge” by one’s fruit. Yes, it does take money to run a church. Does it really matter that a “teacher” is a woman? or a sinner? Is sin not sin, no sin lesser or greater than another? Rather than gossip and flash on the past, I advise all of you – listen to the teachings and compare those teachings to the Bible. If you want a Saint for a teacher – good luck – not in this age, not today. We learn from other sinners that have received the blessings of discernment, knowledge and wisdom. Was not Solomon the wisest of earthly men also a sinner? Do you people really expect perfection from your teachers that you must gossip and accuse? Personally, I’ll learn from an ex-porn star who teaches accurate and complete Bible teachings any day of the week over a TBN, WORD, DSTAR, CTN or INSP minister who confuses biblical passages for gain. Also, where does it say in the Bible ministers cannot enjoy fame or fortune? Anyone heard of Joel Osteen or Joyce Meyer? Why don’t I see any complaints about them on this site? Only God knows what is in the heart and mind of Melissa. So long as Melissa continues to teach accurate, foundational and orthodox scripture – she has my vote. I too will exercise the discernment muscle as I listen. Until I see something contrary, I say – GO GIRL!!! And, to all of you reviewing this site, I say, study the Word, not the gossip. The truth shall set us free – salvation is at hand – the day is drawing near – let’s help and encourage on another and Mrs Scott – who also imperfect like all of us. Anyone care to cast a stone – good idea – hold your peace and pass it on! Thank you for reading my comment. The best thing we can do is encourage Melissa through our feedback, interest and comments to teach interests and matters that concern us.

    Really glad I found this site and I’m afraid it confirms some things I’ve suspected since discovering Gene Scott back in the 1980’s. I watched him in curiosity for a short while and then relegated him to the round file of viewing not worth my while.

    When I discovered him again recently (but probably after he had passed away), I found his presentations more palatable but not more useful. Melissa was the curiosity this time. A quick look at the Youtube clip and more especially the various writeups from attendees/former attendees on this site have confirmed my worst impression that Gene Scott and his young wife are/were primarily entertainers at best and scam artists who fall short only of Jim Jones at worst.

    I will certainly be looking for an expose on them. Their miscreancy will not keep me from a growing interest in continuing my Christian walk or enjoying more closeness to God the Father and Christ through His Word and through the leading of the Holy Spirit.

    People need to pray once and for all for Melissa; whether or not she has made a true confession of faith, it seems to me she is in grave spiritual danger. That doesn’t mean she needs or deserves financial support, however.

    As well, I think it would be better if she were to will the Bible exhibit items to a suitable institutional recipient instead of pawning them off on the internet, and then to find respectable employment other than as a “pastor” or in the Red Light District of the film world.

    I hope she reads this and takes heed.

    As for those of us on either side of the line of “they’re great” and “they’re despicable,” I think those who still think the Scotts are okay need God’s enlightenment, and those of us on the other side need to be sober in our condemnation so that we don’t also fall into sin.

    As for thuggery on the Scotts’ part, I look forward to the written expose and will certain tout it to all the believers (Christians) of my acquaintance. If Ms. Scott is guilty of any criminal activity, I sincerely hope she is discovered and suitably punished, as well.

    God bless.

But I do believe and know for a fact that God will provide you with the truth. Pray for understanding and guidnes before and after you read your Bible, this will open your eyes more also your hearts. Know that we all are born under sin thru Adam and like wise born unto life thru Christ. God says that David was a man after his own heart. Why? Because David showed love “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and all your mind.” Now what Mr.& Mrs Scott did or didn’t do is not up to me to judge. I find there teaching inspiring. I do follow up on the scripture that is laid out in there sermens along with the bible dictionary, I haven’t found anything to make a case agenst what they are teaching.(SO-FAR) But I have only watched 4 of the programs. I just wanted to say PLEASE PRAY AND READ YOUR BIBLE AND PRAY FOR UNDERSTANDING. Jesus put it the best when he said “When an unclean spirt goes out of a man, he goes through a dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.” Also ” Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.”

    You’re missing the point. Critics of Dr. Gene and Pastor Melissa Scott here aren’t claiming perfection or judging anyone’s soul. Only Jesus was perfect and on God, the Lord of Hosts judges our souls.

    Unlike most ordinary sinners, Dr. Gene and Pastor Melissa Scott abused the trust placed in the office of a pastor, who is ordained to serve their flock. Pastors are to guide in God’s word, not to make up their own words and rules as though they are gospel. Even Dr. Scott quoted the bible that those who are charged with higher office will be judged to higher standards.

    However, when pastors lie to their trusting congregation it’s an offense against God’s family and against God. It’s blasphemy. These two blast other Christians and hold themselves up as superior to the men and women they are to serve and shepherd. Yet Gene and Melissa Scott lie and cheat as they yoke people freed by the blood of Jesus into a carnal bondage to them here on earth. It’s despicable, senseless and there’s no excuse. It’s a misuse of their high spiritual office and an affront to God. Period. To those who saw Barbie Bridges, Melissa Scott, scamming in action and felt the sting of Dr. Gene Scott’s sharp forked tongue of double standards, it was a shameful perversion and abomination of the word of God.

    Like Dr. Gene Scott, Pastor Melissa Peroff Pastore Scott has no qualms about shattering families, degrading the poor and homeless, and lambasting her supporters for spending any time and money on anything other than her. She screeches that if you have money to eat you can support her and if you don’t, you’re heading for burning in hell. Gene and Melissa are extremely haughty and judgmental while swindling trusting Christ followers by holding their souls hostage to their carnal pleasures.

    The lunacy of ditzy Pastor Melissa Scott, porn queen of the L.A. pulpit hurls on as she sells off prize assets while whining endlessly of red ink threatening to drown her cult. She needs your money and lots of it. Every bible parable, figure, teaching and word of gospel is contorted to suit her self elevation at the expense of the rest of the populace. If you ever wondered if the devil lives, look at her crazed face screwed up with snarls that rival the serpent himself spewing venom to the righteous.

    You’re right, those smutty shots & videos were not moments of indiscretion. They weren’t snapped in privacy intended for personal use. There are thousands of them marketed to the public in many countries over many years. No oops factor there. She’s a career tramp now parading around conning for bucks in her priestess costume.

    I live in Pasadena. The neighbors are disgusted with Pastor Melissa Scott & turned off by arrogant Dr. Gene Scott. They are horrible neighbors with no consideration for anyone else on the street or in the community. The way they drive and act you’d think they flew in from heaven to grace the city & own the planet.

    That pious holier than thou attitude wreaks from their mansion at Two Oak Knoll & from many of the people who come & go. We feel sorry for the slaves on the Scott plantation.

    Mrs. I’m so holy my crap don’t stink Melissa Scott is driven around like Miss Daisy, but with her nose stuck up in the air.

    At one neighbor’s function the porn pics were passed around. Melissa Scott looked brazen and hardened but still had that recognizable gloat regardless of her ostentatious hair style & color & the get up garb she wears.

    I’ve got news for her crew. Melissa & Eugene Scott are selfish & rude. They make garbage & septic material, get sick & need home repairs just like the ordinary people they are. This God like crap we see them promote makes the neighbors want to puke.

    My God!!!!!!! I just saw two dozen “exposing” photographs being sold on the international public cybernet of this Melissa Scott pastor!!!!!

    Wild horses couldn’t make me allow my children and grandchildren to see that horrid woman!!!!!!! I also saw videos of her and clips where she swore at her congregation using the ‘Sh’ word!!! and other degrading dreadful names.

    That minister’s got a lot to learn about God’s word regarding pastors, deacons, elders and his churches. I pray she studies the gospel on the important traits Jesus taught through his disciples that pastors are to be before she causes permanent damage to the innocence and trust of children!!!

    The shepherds are to be patient and experienced in the faith, have their own houses and marriages in order, reflect moderation and balance.

    Pastor Melissa Scott presents herself as just the
    opposite!! She makes a spectacle of herself and tarnishes the essence of Christian churches !!!!!!

    DR. GENE SCOTT ripped off God and Christians everywhere. Dr. Gene Scott exalted himself. Dr. Gene Scott was a farce and God showed him who is boss.

    Put on your spiritual spectacles and you will see that DR. GENE SCOTT and PASTOR MELISSA SCOTT are nothing but false teachers, false prophets trying to make a buck in the name of Jesus.

    If that isn’t blasphemy I don’t know what is.
    When you hear a man or woman proclaim to be

    you should know you’re dealing with a megalomaniac. The next step for DR. GENE SCOTT and PASTOR MELISSA SCOTT is saying that THEY ARE the new son or daughter of God. RUN!!!!!!!!!

    You “Christians” surprise me. There is a sense of gloating and poorly hidden satisfaction that Gene Scott is dead and i’m wondering what part of the character of Christ you are deriving that sentiment from.One commentor seemed to celebrate that he “succumbed to his own mortality”…Hey the guy was 75…how old are you? If you haven’t yet reached 75, just shut up and praise God for every healthy day you have. And as for Melissa Scott. Doesn’t it just bother you how someone like her could have the gall to stand up to teach the Word. No friend, we need someone like you guys who are obviously perfect and whose pasts are spotless. Makes me wonder why Christ the more qualified Pharisees and chose a uncouth fishersman with a dirty mouth to lead the first church. One commentor advised about getting voice and drama coaching. Well friend, she is doing more with her flat tone and uncoordination that you are with your golden ear and implied vocal gifting. Let me tell you this, i have never been a member of Gene
    Scott’s church, neither am i a fan. As a man, there was nothing about him that i found impressive. What was clear was that he taught the Word as well and with more balance between spirit and intellect than any in his generation. If you could look beyond his external demeanor and actually listen to the teaching, you would you would learn more in an hour than you would in a week long seminary class. One word for Gene Scott…”unpretentious”. He didn’t hide his intentions behind make up, golden podiums and goofy TV grins, gold cufflinks or permed hair. What you saw is exactly what you got. If you gave to his ministry it would mainly be because you value what you are learning and not because are ‘weak’ as has been implied by most. I would hazard a guess that there are many ministers and christians out there who would never publicly declare something favorable about Gene Scott, but secretly watch and learn from his teachings. That is why these detractors seem to know so much about what is happening in his(scott)’ ministry and teaching. Those archives he had on his website 24 hours a day for years were a treasure trove and any biblical scholar worth his salt would be forced to agree. Gene Scott was a refreshing departure from the mainstream Christian media.

    Those of us who knew Dr. Gene Scott well, worked for him and saw how he treated others and what he said in private KNOW BETTER! Dr. Gene Scott was the absolute antithesis of unpretentioius. He was highly arrogant, comfortable in his trampling on the rights and properties of others. He was oblivious to the risks he placed his loyal inside circle in by encouraging misconduct on several fronts, then laughing about it. Dr. Gene Scott loudly proclaimed his special elevation above all man in all times, since the apostle Paul.

    Dr. Gene Scott had two distinct sets of rules; one set for himself in which lavish carnal excesses defined freedom and the other set for everyone else who better not make a mistake or heed the commandments literally.

    He was a cruel meanspirited megalomaniac who
    used God like a prop in his fictional church world.

    Dr. Gene Scott enjoyed inflicting emotional pain on those he controlled. He was so full of himself and his sense of always being right that he didn’t examine himself. No one ever saw Dr. Gene Scott questioning if he was doing God’s will, wondering if he had been too harsh on some unempowered person he ripped to shreds personally and financially. He uniformly spoke that what he was doing, even evil deeds upon brethren, as though God was always for what he was doing and against what others chose to do. When the circumstances were reversed and he took the other side of a dispute, again Dr Gene Scott was always right.

    He’d laugh at people being sheep and giving him all their money. Dr. Gene Scott developed a true cult in every sense of the word, to his gain and the psychological, emotional, spiritual and financial loss of others. For many, he was more a tool of the devil than an instrument of the Lord.

    3/16/07 — What a fascinating read all around, this entire blog, from one extreme to the other.

    I can’t believe this guy, Dr.Gene Scott, has been around for over 20+ years on TV and I only just “discovered” him on late night PAX-TV within the past 2-3 months. At first I would keep flipping past him on the remote control because he “looked a bit fritzy in appearance” not to mention the at-first-glance scribbled-whiteboareds.

    But eventually I stopped on his program and actually watched it and I was blown away. It was an excellent sermon about each one of the apostles, such detail and richness, and what seemed to be such depth of understanding, as if the speaker, Dr. Scott (Gene), could relate personally to their flaws as well as their triumphs. I was hooked after that, but in future nights channel-surfing it seemed the Mrs. was on TV more often than he, so I would pass her by until the other night I did watch her but, as has been said, she did not have near the “depth” of teaching that he had.

    I had enjoyed his Hebrew/Greek explanations, but she was a bit too slow getting to her points.

    —————–

    Eventually I learned Gene had already long passed away, and these were repeat shows I was seeing. I actually had felt “sad” that he was gone. It had been on my “to do list” to research this guy, and tonight was the night, and Whoa Nellie! :-/ Yow!

    Such a CONTRAST. I’ve probably only seem him preach/teach on TV about 10 times so far, and I’ve never seen him do any of the things described. No cigars, cursing, etc. He actually has come across as a “humble” guy who is all too aware of his sins and faults, as he would comment now and again how he has learned the hard way, etc. etc. so I just felt like he must be somebody who has had to Really Struggle with himself, but that he was totally dependent and relied totally on God to be forgiving of someone like him with such evidently painful flaws.

    But I had NO IDEA of what he was speaking, as is described in this blog. Holy Moley.

    ———————

    So I am WONDERING: Did Gene Scott become more “aware” of his faults in his later years? Did he really begin to “clean up his act” possibly as he got older?

    Or, are they only airing his more “respectable” sermons, where he actually comes across as a “humble” person?

    If he had/has not changed one iota from the examples given in this blog, and most especially the one link to that Windows Media video where Gene Scott had on that hat and cigar and was cursing up a storm, well, my immediate reaction to that video was that the man obviously has a brain disorder, a mental illness or personality disorder. Genius oftentimes blends with “madness” (by “madness” I mean “insanity,” rage, etc.) My guess is he possibly had Bipolar Disorder or Narcissistic Personality Disorder, or something to that effect. That was my FIRST impression after seeing the video tonight. Lack of impulse control, inability to take criticism, lashing out, etc.

    Did anyone else have these thoughts? Or, does everyone really think he did it on purpose? (somehow I don’t think anyone can be that way “on purpose,” but that there must be an underlying mental illness, or PD, etc.)

    I actually felt bad for him, seeing him out of control cursing up a storm in that video. If anyone has ever dealt with people with mental illness and/or personality disorders, you’ll know what I mean.

    For detailed info about NPD from someone who actually has it and writes about it “from the inside out,” look up Sam Vaknin’s websites online. Fascinating.

    ———————

    As for Mrs. Scott, I haven’t seen her cursing and intimidating her congregation yet either. I would imagine they don’t air THOSE specific shows, eh? Would PAX-TV (now ion Network) even allow shows like that? Even if it’s all true — and I’m not saying it isn’t — she also could have a personality disorder because as is said in the mental health field, dysfunctional people are usually drawn to each other subconsciously, without their even realizing it in the beginning.

    ——————

    If they both are “true frauds” (without mental illness), then surely the Lord will judge. But if they are damaged and wounded, then I would hope the Lord will have mercy.

    ———————-

    Incidentally, just earlier tonight a prior sermon of Gene Scott was on TV, and I was actually thrilled to hear him say he was a “Paulinist” and that w/o Paul Christianity would never have made it. I tend to agree with the Pauline dispensational position.

    It was after the show that I came to the web to look up the Gene Scott website, and I see he has extensive audios/videos, many which sounded like subjects I would have liked to hear. But after this blog, I am rethinking Dr. Scott as a teacher, unless he “learned meekness” in his last few years of his life? Or no?

    ———————

    I think what they are asking for his videos, $40 EACH, is quite a HIGH PRICE. Most videos are usually $20, and usually never more than, say, $29.95, etc. So $40 is quite high, imo. I would never pay that much, but had considered the audio tapes, until I found this blog…

    ————————

    If Mrs. Scott needs money, they should sell that cathedral. I think it is rather ghastly and “haunted” looking, including the eerie paintings displayed there, and also shown at the website.

    Also, that painting of Christ in Pilate’s chambers, done by Gene Scott, and shown at his site, also caused me pause. It looks like it was painted by a “mad man” (“insanity”).

    I wonder if there are ‘embedded images’ in any of those paintings (refer to the DVD, “Rape of the Soul” re: embedded images in Catholic literature. It will blow you away).

    ———————-

    I also noticed Scott has two Pyramid pictures connected to his “teachings” section of his website. Immediately this made me wonder if he is/was a Freemason? or involved in any other “secret societies” since the Pyramid is their symbol?

    And also because one of the posters to this blog mentioned they had enjoyed Gene Scott’s “esoteric” teachings. So I wonder exactly what has Gene Scott had to say on esoteric subjects? If he is involved in the luciferian cults (Masonry, and other secret societies), this would certainly explain the “preacher gone wild” behaviors [read: like GW Bush, who is reported by WhiteHouse insiders to frequently go mad, berzerk, raging, cursing, etc., and who is also a member of the luciferian Skull & Bones Society, as was his father GHW Bush).

    —————

    Additionally, one of the news articles on this blog of the life of Dr. Scott said he at one time either schooled or worked with Oral Roberts. Oral Roberts is a Freemason, as are his proteges such as Ken Copeland, reportedly. So that’s another reason for my suspicions, though, admittedly, I’ve never even seen Oral Roberts behave as badly as did Gene Scott in that Windows Media video tonight! :-/

    However, Oral Roberts Univ. DOES also have a pyramid symbol in its logo, an INVERTED pyramid, which is actually WORSE in the occult, as it means “Down with Christianity,” so to speak.

    ———————

    Another “first impression” I had reading this blog and posts, is that the Scotts are running a bona-fide “cult,” in the true sense of the word. Some (but not all) of the descriptions provided in this blog remind me of the tactics and “control” used by the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society cult over its members.

    If so, then would also explain — or reveal — possible Masonic connections to Gene Scott, et al.

    ——————–

    BTW, I didn’t think Mrs. Scott sings THAT bad, lol. I had enjoyed their band and her singing, “His Eye is On the Sparrow.” But oh well.

    I also would not judg
    e her “past” as we all have skeletons in the closet, or most of us do. It’s what she is really made up of NOW, after her supposed “conversion” that matters.

    ————-

    Well, this is long enough. Either way, it’s a sad state of affairs all around, whether the Scotts are pretending to be workers for the Lord but are in truth connected to luciferian secret socieities, or worse (simple greed, etc.); or whether they are just sick, wounded and dysfunctional individuals.

    In the meantime, I’ll stick with Les Feldick, my favorite Pauline Bible teacher whose bible studies air on TV as well. http://www.lesfeldick.org .

    And may the Lord Jesus Christ have abundant mercy on us all, myself included, a sinner from the get-go depending entirely on His Grace.

    All men are created equal. Dr. Gene Scott seemed to believe he was more equal than others. He built himself up as being worthy of being obeyed and glorified as the gatekeeper to the Lord. From his teachings, everyone else was worthy of being humiliated by him as a blessing from God. It’s very warped thinking as the seed for all kinds of wickedness and abuse.

    Haughty petulant pastor Melissa Barbie Bridges Scott parrots Gene Scott for lack of any other role model or education.

    Pride goeth before the fall. God’s in control. The holy spirit is moving on their cultish sect and calving Christians from that abyss.

    I began listening to Mrs Scott several months ago and was fascinated by her knowledge of the Bible and language. I could see where she might be a source of contention to some but I found her to be a joy.
    Last night she taught on “Transubstation” and I was “shocked” to find out she believes the Catholic church to be in SERIOUS error.
    I being a Catholic felt an urgency to check out her “teachings” which lead me to here for instance.
    It doesn’t give me joy to hear of the sorted past but I’m grateful to know all I can so I can make up my own mind. As one reader posted here “Get what you can from the Bible and make up your own mind.”

    Dr. Gene Scott and Pastor Melissa Scott have single minded focus on extracting money to build themselves up at the expense of others they take advantage of. If their victims read the bible or find Jesus along the way that’s a blessing, which happens every day all over the world with the spiritual abuse Gene and Melissa Scott are famous for.

    I agree with the plaintive call of the previous commenter, for those who are rich to share just some with those who are poor. What a great and wonderful gift from God to have wealth to share and experience the reward of touching lives of those that megalomaniacs like the Scotts oppress to being further downtrodden and broken.

    The bible says the tithes are to be given to the Levites and the poor. Everywhere throughout the old and new testament, the spirit of charity and mercy for those less fortunate is spoken by God and Jesus for all to hear and be mindful of.

    Yet Gene and Melissa Scott turn the true giving message into a spiget for cash flow pointed only TO themselves and FROM others including the destitute. They push people to give beyond their means by taking out loans, filing bankruptcy and not paying taxes. It’s despicable and indefensible regardless of what occasional crumbs they may toss out to the starving homeless flock.

    No matter how hard the Scott insiders try, it is unconscionable what Pastor Melissa Scott and Dr. Gene Scott do with huge sums of money, in defiance of God’s word, while claiming their selfish ways in the name of God. It’s hypocrisy!

    This is certainly a compendium of The Good ,The Bad and mostly THE UGLY! Seems to me it is written that , whatsoever measure you use on others is the SAME measure G-D will use on you…Some of the meanest people I’ve ever met call themselves Christians.
    Dr Scott taught = Mercy & Grace, however to receive it from HIM , you must also give it to those in YOUR life.. .Throughout Dr Scott’s troubled journey, I often found comfort because early on in his ministry, the so called Brethern he labored to help establish,deserted him when he needed their support and encouragement…It was a very bitter pill and I don’t think he recovered from it until he married Melissa. However he kept on being
    G-d’s irascible Prophet..One day I described his temperament like a “Rattlesnake on a hot rock at high noon in The Mojave Desert” Elijah was such a man.. Prophets are usually angry, solitary men with a low opinion of the masses in general. That is why they are not Pastors.. I loved him dearly, he said it like it is..Janet London

    Janet, I was there when Gene Scott fired everyone at Faith Center. I cried as he banned his singer John Jordan. Gene Scott demanded faith in him, not God. It had to be re-demonstrated to him every day by burdensome blind obedience to groveling to please him when he screwed up then blew his gasket.
    He was more entranced with his beloved Christina, the beauty mark on his ministry, love of his life for eternity and was with her twice as long as Melissa. Gene Scott was a cruel, mean spirited ego maniac. In the end he was scared of death, showing his own little faith in our Father.

    I also worked for Dr. Eugene Scott during the 20 years of Christine Shaw Scott. She was a classy, tough and gorgeous woman Dr. Scott was very proud of. He brought her in the same way he did Melissa, as his secretary who became an ever present assistant and companion that no one suspected was his lover, until he finally announced their common law marriage. He seemed to enjoy test driving his women to help him run his church, while mesmerizing them with his fineries and holiness.

    Christine threw in the towel, said she didn’t want to take care of an old man 20 years her senior. Dr. Scott caught her in bed with a young tennis pro while they were travelling together overseas.

    No one dared ask, but the question circulated as to why Dr. Scott wasn’t in bed with his wife. Same question was whispered when Gene Scott’s first wife Betty, went to bed with Dr. Scott’s archrival in Melodyland. Betty was his high school sweetheart and his own age.

    Why would his high profile women in a famous broadcast ministry, married to a self proclaimed lover who could teach Hugh Heffner a few things, risk so much sleeping with other men under his nose? Maybe he was too busy counting his reservations and money to take care of his wives.

    You’re right about everything you said, Robert.

    She is so shamlessly self absorbed, hyper strutting to and fro and shallow. But when she raises her finger and in all seriousness says “Let me tell you something, I’m not gonna. . . . . ” she actually thinks she’s being deep. She adjusts those glasses in her best professorial manner then strolls with her back to the audience, like a mini me Dr. Gene Scott, twirls as though caught with some god sent insight and says something like “ushers let the latecomers in, or my trousers are loose today.” She then gives a sound slap to the bible she’s carting around under her arm and announces a new revelation “This book says it all. I love Jesus and that’s my message.” The cornball idiocy of it is overwhelming. In unison the cookie cutter cheering low lifes leep to their feet on cue, nodding and smiling until the cameras are off. With that cue, everyone looks down so as not to be caught by the Melissa gestapo greeting one another, or smiling.

    Whether she’s just confused or taking advantage of a plum that fell in her lap, Pastor Melissa Scott is travelling a risky path of false teachings and fleecing her sheep like her departed husband, con man Dr. Gene Scott did. He became crazy with his demands that everyone bow down to him, the pastor, and choke down all the crap he handed out for everyone to swallow. Some have said she’s the Anti-Christ.
    She’s very mean and selfish to everyone around her
    and acts like she built the ministry and Gene Scott
    was her stepping stone.

    1 Tim 2:11-3:1
    11 A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15 But women will be saved through childbearing-if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

    NIV

    1 Tim 3
    3:1 Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task. 2 Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect. 5(If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. 7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.

    8 Deacons, likewise, are to be men worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. 9 They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.

    11 In the same way, their wives are to be women worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything.

    12 A deacon must be the husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well. 13 Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.

    14 Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, 15 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. 16 Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great:
    NIV

    1 Cor 6:9-20
    9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

    12 “Everything is permissible for me”-but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”-but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food”-but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” 17 But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.

    18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. 19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
    NIV

    Rom 12:1-2
    12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship. 2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.

    Mrs. Melissa Scott is trying to do the best she can and fill the big shoes of Dr. Gene Scott. He had 30 years of preaching on her and a Stanford PHD too.

    Melissa can’t help it if she’s ordinary and not gifted in intellect or any great insight. She can barely speak well enough to get a point across. She must have had a traumatic childhood she’s so angry and self-centered. I feel sorry for her. She has aged 10 years in the last 2 and seems pathetic. She can’t help it is God didn’t choose her for gifts and to be his

    I am not impressed with either his or her teachings, or mannerisms. What does impress me is how subtle and crafty are satan’s deceptions. Wake up everybody. Listen to your heart as well as God’s straitforward Word, and it will tell you there was and still is a sulphuric stench coming from that ministry. And for those who criticize judging one another, they need to understand we are commanded in the Word to rightly judge, and beware of such things as these. It should be a wakeup call for every christian who has been exposed to this deception (God saw fit to tune you in to Dr Scott you know). It proves just how dangerous a path it can be to shepherd on such sacred grounds as these. My curiosity surrounds not the question of whether or not Dr Scott’s ministry was genuine (it wasnt). But whether or not he either took himself seriously, or exactly knew himself to be the deceiver he was. And the evidence in my opinion sadly points to the latter, and I refer you to 2 Peter’s teaching on false prophets to end my comment here.

    Man I have never read so much bullshit in all my life. All you people that rail against these two pastors amaze me with your ignorance of what their true message is all about. The ancient languages speak for themselves, and I would place my trust in them any day over the convoluted language we call English. Let’s see, Jesus called the religious leaders of his time hypocrites, vipers, blind guides, followers of doctrines of men instead of God, and many other not so flattering adjectives. I believe he got pretty damned mad and maybe even cussed some when he threw the moneychangers out of the temple; not for using the money for their own benefit, but for selling conveniences so those sacrificing did not have to work as hard for what they gave. As far as Dr. Scotts rantings; what the hell do you people think Paul or John the Baptist must have sounded like in their times. They were actually ALL killed for their insane babblings. Paul was a mass murderer of Christians before he was converted, and he wrote a great portion of the New Testament. Jesus had a harlot as well as many other women follow him around, and if I remember correctly he saved the woman from being stoned after being caught in adultery. I believe he also made a statement that a harlot would gain entrance into Heaven before those religious leaders that held people bondage to the doctrines of man with all the idiotic rules and regulations they dreamed up to keep those same followers in bondage to their own philosophy of what Gods intentions were; and to give them their money. Lets see, Abraham, Job, King David, King Solomon, to name a few, were extremely rich; far beyond anything we can imagine today, and those lowlife moneygrubbers even had bodyguards…lol. Songs 3:7-8 says that Solomon had 60 of the most valiant warriors in all of Israel guarding his bed alone. Verse 9-10 says he had a pretty pimped out chariot too. Have any of you ignoramuses ever heard of Solomon’s mines or stables. They were all sinners too. Hell King David had several hundred wives??? These men all died too, but whose writings and lives and faith are used as an example throughout scripture? I cannot believe I read someone’s comment about a pastor having to have a college degree to preach. Ever heard of John the Baptist; wearing only a loincloth, no less? I kind of doubt he was schooled in some snotty nosed, holier than thou university. Didn’t he eat bugs or something? Now Daniel sure did seem to brag about his academic achievements quite a bit. Didn’t God give him prophecies about all sorts of heavy happenings and even told him to seal them up until the end days? Man, God sure must be a complete dumbass to pick such a crowd of miscreants to brainwash all our minds when he could have chosen really intelligent assholes like I have read on here! I don’t know that much about Dr. Scott, or Melissa for that matter, but I do recognize powerful teaching and deep insight into the workings of the powers of Heaven, and the fallibility of man, and from what I have seen of Pastor Melissa, she is the first one to admit she is a sinner. Now for all you nonbelievers, if you would shut your disgustingly foul traps of oral diarrhea and open your stupendously closed minds and spend 1/3 the amount of time actually listening and studying, instead of criticizing others, you might begin to see that maybe these people are on to something. Dr. Scotts’ essay on The Resurrection is one of the most powerful arguments for the existence of Jesus and his raising from the dead that I have ever read. Now that is something to hang your hat on, because if that is true we’re all in for one hell of a show. Oh, by the way, maybe you people that like to throw the phraseology about hell around so much should look up the true meaning of hell; ignorance of that magnitude really makes one look stupid.

    I think it’s hilarious that no-one has posted since this argument above. I too love to listen to Pastor Scott and Dr. Scott when his video’s are played. God is the only one who can judge us, and in the meantime if it helps anyone to understand the Bible I think what they’re doing is worthwhile. What is wrong with everyone that you feel such hatred and vile talk is necessary? You seem to be absolutely taken by the fact that you believe Melissa was in the adult porn world. Isn’t she also allowed to be forgiven? Do you know her heart? Don’t watch them if you don’t trust what they’re doing, and don’t send any money. It’s a free country. Personally, I have gotten more out of listening to them than many preachers I’ve listened to in church year after year in my life. The teaching is unique, and for that I feel they deserve to be paid; it’s made the Bible come alive for many people.

    I do not understand why there can be no mercy in most of these comments. If one does not like someone then quit watching them. As far as Melissa’s past, where would any of us be if God remembered that? I have to trust in His mercy and grace daily that He does not remember mine. Let us all try not to determine what is in the heart of another human being as only God knows the truth of that. We do have a responsibility to show one another kindness and love. We must always remember even in God’s wrath there is still mercy. It is a shame to me that as humans we forget so quickly what God did for all of us, and we must remember His sun sets on the evil and righteous alike. He loves us all and we all make His Heart cry. What would we do I wonder if everytime we did wrong it was posted all on the internet for the world to see? Is not it wonderful that some of us can sin and keep it in the privacy of our home while we are on our knees begging for God’s forgiveness? Let’s remember if one does or does not like Gene Scott or Melissa, the only way you formed this opinion is by watching them. So who is at greater fault here? Those watching these “sinful people” or the “sinful people.” themselves? We do not know where Gene Scott is at, but I pray for mercy on his soul as I hope someone will do for me when I die. There is not one hair on my head that is worthy of the love of The Cross. I know God has to look at me through the wounds of Who hung on that Cross for me to even enter into His grace and obtain forgiveness for my sins. As I read these writings a verse comes to my mind when Jesus said take the plank out of our own eyes before we take the splinters out of someone elses. He is dead and he is either with God or He is not. Melissa is either doing what she is doing for God or she is not. None of us know the whole truth of any of it. God does though and I trust Him to take care of it, and so should we all when we are in doubt. God does not need our help in handling His affairs and it amazes me how quickly we arise to that cause. If people could just be kind and forgiving this world would be such a better place. May God Bless each and every one of us, and if Melissa is not doing the right thing with the ministry then she needs our prayers, doesn’t she?
    May God Bless You

    so i’m flicking thru the late-night channels when i c this hot chick in a baby-blue ‘minister’ costume & decide 2 turn her up because she reminded me of a stripper i saw in vegas when i was driving the drooling whore-mongers 2 full-nude strip clubs in my taxi late at night. she was a whore, dressed up as a ‘reverend,’ taking her ‘collar’ & ‘vestments’ off 2 titillate the boys *AND* girls.

    she made big $. had really nice hair 2…

    this barbie doll on tv didn’t need 2 b heard 2 c that she was a heretical liar. u can watch her w/the sound off & c that she was satanic, no matter how many real truths she was saying or how frantically she pawed through a bible. some false prophets r truly ‘inspired’ when they sugar-coat the lies with the Truth 2 make the lies easier 2 ‘swallow’ – inspired by hell. satan knows the bible better than any human

    anyone here got ‘itching ears?’ from what i read above, americans really love 2 ‘bend over’ for (female) B/S artists

    i also saw a crazy, drunk-ish man *seriously* mess up some dry-erase white-boards with multi-colored markers, like someone else’s 3-year old does 2 *your* dining room walls with permanent markers. he looked like a schizo in a nut house. i didn’t bother turning him up. sickening, he.

    seriously, people…
    you cannot even *see* the Kingdom if you are not ‘born-again’. i have known *way* 2 many ‘church ppl’ who did not have regenerate souls, but were totally engrossed with their ‘religion.’ they could excuse any evil in the name of Jesus, and their brute-beast pastors taught it well

    and they didn’t tolerate ‘infidels.’

    After reading these posts on Dr. Gene Scott and Pastor Melissa Scott I just had to go check it out for myself…. too interesting not to…

    Well what I found blew my mind….

    First I found Melissa Scott to be very very intelligent! And earnestly sincere! How a person can speak, read, and write over 20 languages is nothing short of miraculous! At least to me because I do a lousy job speaking one!

    Plus I followed along with what she was teaching, then checked her out and found that she was right. Plus I learned something? For instance she showed some translation errors in the Bible. Ok for all you skeptics who think they can learn it all themselves, find those errors on your own then!

    You say what does it really matter anyway? Ok take the difference between the passage “faith in God” and “faith of God” ….BIG difference in meaning right!

    Anyway my hat is off to Melissa Scott and her heart felt dedication to not only continue in Dr. Gene Scott’s work, but to take it up a few more notches. She is definitely using the foundation Dr. Scott laid as a spring board to something much greater and bigger, at least that is what I observed by checking her out.

    I never was one to believe the accusations of others without checking it out for myself. I’m glad I did!

    An old man once taught me that the accuser is most likely guilty of his accusations, or at least reveals his rotten heart.

    Randy, Christains are instructed by God to judge,test and recognize (form an opinion)about everything around us. Matt 7:1-5 Jesus tells me to judge other Christains in a non-hypocritcal manner before I try to help a brother or sister in Christ with an obvious sin issue that could cause them to spiritualy stumble(v5). 1Jn 4:1&2 "…do not believe every spirit,but test the spirit to see whether they are from God…"
    (v6) "We are from God and whoever knows God listens to us. This is how we recognize(God's)Spirit of truth and the(demonic)spirit of falsehood. Randy whether you want to call it judging, testing or recoginizing it involves engaging that which God has given all Christain's for the love and protection of each other and our selves. The active engaging of our analytical capacity to reason,Biblical knowledge and wisdom and God's Spiritual inspiration to arrive at a practical and spiritual decision/conclusion. Randy,you create decisions about people and things every day. You can't arrive at a decision or a conclusion without first forming a judgment/opinion. Randy read Matt 7:1-5, Jesus never said don't you ever judge any one or anything at any time. He makes a distinction between judging with a hypocritical attitude which will subject those to the same type of judgment by God and God's way, which is judging another with a compassionate,respectful and caring desire to practically and spiritually protect and help others and not condem. Randy,you make judgements,form opinions,about people and things every day. It is not what you are doing but what your attitude is when you are doing it. Randy, your judgmental comment feels very condeming to me and you are not God. If you knew the Master that you were talking about you would have never written what you did; nor would have most of the other commentators the way they did. Especially my brothers and sisters;expose spiritual error and hearsay using the sword of God with temperance, knowledge and wisdom. Remember Jesus said, "What a man sows so shall he reap.", Whether Christain or not. Randy, a sincere suggestion for you and to the many others;seek after spiritual wisdom, God's thoughts and His ways,found in the bible, and do not seek after a person(s) or a ministry. Jesus Christ is your Master? This is my message!

    YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!

    It was just brought to my attention researched and discovered that this so-called Pastor and reformed porn star has been recently dating none other than a porn star. This adulteress jezebel has been seeing a a man who has been up on yahoo groups since 2006 in the category of porn star with 100 links to all manner of abominable porn, home videos, B Productions, you name it. When confronted recently with the knowledge of this, he took the site down.

    The Harlot Melissa went so far as to brag about her conquest on television by winking to those in the know while she sang “he touched me, oh, he touched me.” If you watch her streaming live video you’ll see it for yourself. She has even confessed it in her sermon God’s Promises that can be found by clicking into the illustration of her on google images with this sermon title.

    The scariest thing of all is that the entire Trinity Broadcast Network knows about this as Melissa has been pandering to their lusts (pride of life, lust of the eyes) with her God awful pictures on Glamour Fantasy and bragging about her conquest. They have been extolling this intrigue, adultery and harlotry as they have personal connection and association with this male model/porn star who is knowingly caught up in all manner of filth. It has been brought to their attention over and over and they defiantly refuse to condemn this behavior because he is one of their own now. What has the kingdom come to that such high standing people of God would resort to this and allow this to run rampant in the kingdom unchecked. They have no business preaching the word pretending to be with God, standing on the side of the evil one.

    She also refers to the matter in her recent messages, this week of 2/07/09 by saying she is troubled about what may be coming because she slipped back into the flesh (by having an affair with a married porn star/playgirl model who has a film entitled Hunks in Hedonism.) Good looking guy but a complete unsaved dufus. Duh! What was she thinking? Her thoughts must have been someplace else.

    My question is…if she is a reformed porn star and now pastor since 2000, who made the videos on BarbiBridgesvod.com that are in the name of Barbie Bridges Entertainment in 2003. If these are not hers they clearly represent the littany of porn she produced with her first husband, including ones with teenagers.

    To fall back into this type of behavior is absolutely absurd? She must have taken a look at the heathen, couldn’t resist his loins and jumped right on it. Not surprising since she was also a paid pony girl for her husband Eugene Scott back in the day that led to their divorces and her subsequent taking over of his evil empire.

    With all those brains you’d think she could have done better than this??? What a shame!!!

    P.S. These are well known facts, by many. Dumb, dumb, dumb!

    Funny how people use their own tongues-via-their-fingers to spread gossip, isn’t it?

    She was a porn star? So what! Jesus saves them, too! Junk about Melissa Scott is everywhere, but there is no documented proof. The gossipers can’t take away her gift for teacher of God’s gift of salvation. She gets this, and so she continues teaching instead of hiding.

    I’ve been watching her for weeks. She’s a darn good teacher. One doesn’t have to be an entertainer or a good orator to be a good teacher. She clearly does her homework.

  196. Does the truth hurt? says:

    What does it matter? You can know 100 languages and all the knowledge you want, but does that make a teacher exempt from walking in the truth of what she teaches.

    She openly bragged about her adulterous affair with this porn star. She is flagrantly spreading her gap for money on her glamour fantasy site, and you call this a good teacher? A teacher of what, do as I say not as I do? Sometimes you can teach a dog to roll over and bend but sometimes all the tricks in the world can’t take the trick out of the trick.

    I wish it weren’t true but being that I am one of her flock who knows it is, it’s absolutely disgraceful to say the least. I have lost complete respect for my own pastor. And I know what’s going I’m because I’ve seen it all and the cover up and it aint pretty!

    I pray that God will be merciful to you, while there’s still time.

    How interesting it is that supposed prominent leaders of faith are allowed to openly disregard and profane the sacred tenets and principles of God (faith) but if someone tells the truth about it the truth teller is labeled the willing host of Satan? Are you ignorant or just plain blind? Who is the willing host of Satan? The false leaders/perpetators of these wicked acts or the true ones who speak against these corrupt influences and behaviors that bring gross darkness upon the people?

    The actions speak louder than any words spoken. One need only be the living epistle and use words when necessary. These continuing eroding behaviors behind the scenes of religious organizations, who have gone completely off track, are similar to the train wreck that happened in Chatsworth, CA, or otherwise the number one porn city of the United States.

    To whom much is given, much is expected. There will be a greater judgement for those who know the truth of the Gospel and lead others, after their example, into great sin. The whole evangelical kingdom is manifesting the ill effects of these false teachers and pretenders. You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.

    Especially, those of us who are up close, in the family, and watching the entire corrupt thing being played out. They are flagrantly putting their filthiness in our faces without any fear of God.

    No excuse will work to diminish the continued and failed conduct of these goats. The Lord will pull up the tares in due season when it is time. Instead of excusing your idols your better off praying for these fallen ones, removing them from their positions, until repentance is truly authentic with reverence, maturity and obedience to the word of God.

    This is not do as I say not as I do. The Almighty Father God will not be mocked.

    This is the most disturbing stuff I’ve read in a LONG time. First of all, who among you has a stone to throw, since you are all obviously without SIN. How many liars, fornicators, thieves and homosexuals are in this audience that can sit back and berate this person? Last time I checked, only God Himself has the ability to look into a person’s heart.
    As for PASTOR Scott’s teachings, have you actually sat down and gone thru the Bible with her and read that what is being taught IS correct? Theological scholars and historians can only admit that what is being taught is accurate. Everything she says points to God. But, because she speaks with an air of boldness, I suppose she’s too holy for you. And as far as money goes… 1 Cor 9:9. Preachers can take a salary. As a matter of fact, the priests did; they lived of the tithes. When the tithes came in, the priests had their salary. Then they would tithe to the higher priests, and so on; it would go all the way up the line.

    HE WHICH SOWETH SPARINGLY SHALL REAP ALSO SPARINGLY; AND HE WHICH SOWETH BOUNTIFULLY SHALL REAP ALSO BOUNTIFULLY-2 Cor 9:6. This is a law of God. It does not mean, if you give one hundred dollars that you’re going to get back one thousand dollars. You will get back generously from the Lord, but in the way He desires to give it to you. It might be in wisdom and knowledge. 2 Cor 8:7 NIV-SEE THAT YOU ALSO EXCEL IN THIS GRACE OF GIVING. One thing that is troubling is when we see a person that does not excel in the grace of giving. Anyone that does not excel in the grace of giving, usually falls away.

    It costs money to run cameras, lights, websites, staff and lots of other things associated with whats going on there. The woman works hard and does it for the Lord. She is teaching people- lots of people of the Bible. Shes a TEACHER. Dont you think a person should be paid for what they do? Or I suppose you all go to work for free too.
