Earl “The Abomination” Paulk is the Father of His Own Nephew.

by @ 11:51 pm. Filed under Nuts on Parade

I think on this one, J. Lee Grady at Charisma magazine offered his readers a good assessment of the latest in the LONG list of allegations against Earl Paulk. But this one is more than just an allegation, it’s been proven by DNA!

It?s Time to Blow the Whistle on Corruption

We?ve created a toxic religious culture that requires people to be quiet when they should be confronting sin and challenging injustice.

When I started my job at Charisma in 1992, one of my first assignments was to sort through dozens of files of disturbing allegations made against one of the largest charismatic churches in the country. A group of women had contacted our magazine with shocking claims that Bishop Earl Paulk Jr. and other staff pastors at the 15,000-member Cathedral of the Holy Spirit in Atlanta had sexually abused them. These frustrated women came to the Christian media because no pastors in our movement would listen to their horror stories.

Today, people are finally admitting that Paulk was a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing. He was the liar and we were the naive dupes who fell for his act.

The most revolting side of the Paulk scandal hit the fan last Sunday. The Cathedral’s current senior pastor, Donnie Earl Paulk-who has been known his entire life as Earl Paulk’s nephew-admitted to his congregation that he is actually Earl Paulk’s son. A DNA test required by the court has proved that Donnie Earl is not the son of Earl’s brother, Don. He is actually the product of a relationship between his mother, worship pastor Clariece Paulk, and his “Uncle Earl.”

When the apostle Paul learned that incest was occurring among Corinthian believers (“immorality of such a kind that does not exist even among the Gentiles,” he said), he rebuked the church for refusing to bring correction and gave them a clear directive: “Remove the wicked man from among yourselves” (1 Cor. 5:1-2,13, NASB).

(hat tip to Covina)

While it might be claimed that this case of Earl Paulk being found to be the father of his own nephew is the most revolting, how about Earl Paulk’s granddaughter accusing him of sexual abuse? I guess it could be said the latest news is the worst only because there is DNA evidence to prove it. But it was apparent Paulk was evil long ago. There have been accusations against him since the 1960s, yet people still called him a Mand of Gawd! All I can say is that Earl Paulk may have escaped some prior legal efforts against him, but he could not cover all the stink of his mess.

Read 1 Corinthians 5, this kind of mess should have caused him to be excommunicated long ago. But he kept saying “I didn’t do it” and despite more accusers than you can shake 1 Timothy 5:19-21 at, some having heard the allegations, continued to support him. And I’ve seen Eddie Long support this man in the past when some alligations were made.

The bottom line is this, EVERY SINGLE ABOMINATION NOTED IN LEVITICUS 18 IS STILL AN ABOMINATION TODAY AND IT’S LIKELY EARL PAULK HAS COMMITTED SEVERAL! By my own count of the madness, he’s probably got Leviticus 18:6, 16, 17 and 20 down cold. Let me say it again, the allegations of his sexual immorality started back in the 1960’s!!!

This is why when people in church leadership are acting up, it MUST BE EXPOSED AND REBUKED WITH VIGOR!

    He also put a guilt trip on his followers, warning them that anyone who accused him of wrongdoing was “touching the Lord’s anointed.” Wow, doesn’t THAT sound familiar?

  2. DL Foster Says:

    Okay deep breath. Now SCREAM!

    This man is a prime example of why you need to keep on keepin on IC. These vicious wolves, left undetected, will devour the house of God and blaspheme the name of Christ while wearing long, flowing robes and white clerical collars.

    This evil man will not escape the judgment of God, yet we ask God to have mercy.

    This has renewed my resolve to call the pimps, wolves, false prophets out early,  in hopes of sparing someone’s soul from destruction.

    "I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever."  Thomas Jefferson

    This applies to our country AND the church. 

    I fear for this dude.  I Google’d him to see what he was all about.  Bad, bad, bad. 

    It would have been better if a millstone had been tied around his neck…

    BTW, GREAT job with this and all the other posts, Bro.  You and Mel are doing a great job protecting the flock.

  11. IndependentConservative Says:

    Too bad Thomas Jefferson didn’t accept Jesus and made his own Bible that removed the deity of Christ.  What will Jefferson AND EARL PAULK do when they see Christ is real and their judge?

    I’m pretty sure Earl Paulk has to be an atheist to do what he has been doing all these years.

    When I look at Leviticus 18 and think about America, it’s like this nation finds a new abomination to embrace.  Perhaps a new verse to violate to the hilt every 20 years (each generation).  How long before that entire chapter is legal and in full swing here? 

    Father, thy kingdom come in Jesus name!

    Well, well, well…what has the Mand of Gawd been up to? On a serious note, they may as well arrest and lock this dude up…without a trial. It’s horrible what he’s done, but alas, he’s a "preacher"…he’ll probably get away with it.

    I am not familiar with Paulk… we should not be surprised. We have been “The Chruch Nourished From the Face Of The Serpent”

    Hi Glenn,

    There are pastors who are preaching the truth and living as an Elder should. But they’re not the type of people that have a big known name in the media. Because they’re not tickling ears. God continues to preserve the church, including with good Elders that preach and live the truth. As you said, they are hard to find. But while there are many that Jesus will say “I never knew you” to, there are others who do not practice lawlessness. In scripture, there’s always record of a faithful remnant, while most others are false.

    Independent Conservative,

    Thanks for responding! I’m sure there are a precious few ordained ministers that have escaped the Pastor Pewsitter trap. I think that the best way to expain this idea is:

    Those ‘Whom God Knows Not’

    Today’s Pastors universally treat the believer gathering ‘Command of the Lord’ as an option. The Amplified Bible declares that God doesn’t know any Spiritual Leaders who ignore this command! Why do they ignore this? It could be tradition, ego, pride, or many other things. One thing that is for certain, there is no scriptural basis to negate this clear command of Jesus!

    The Believer Gathering Command:

    AMP 1 Cor 14;26 What then, brethren, is [the right course]? When you meet together, each one has a hymn, a teaching, a disclosure of special knowledge or information, an utterance in a [strange] tongue, or an interpretation of it. [But] let everything be constructive and edifying and for the good of all. 27 If some speak in a [strange] tongue, let the number be limited to two or at the most three, and each one [taking his] turn, and let one interpret and explain [what is said]. 28 But if there is no one to do the interpreting, let each of them keep still in church and talk to himself and to God. 29 So let two or three prophets speak [those inspired to preach or teach], while the rest pay attention and weigh and discern what is said. … 37 If anyone thinks and claims that he is a prophet [filled with and governed by the Holy Spirit of God and inspired to interpret the divine will and purpose in preaching or teaching] or has any other spiritual endowment, let him understand (recognize and acknowledge) that what I am writing to you is a command of the Lord. 38 But if anyone disregards or does not recognize [that it is a command of the Lord], he is disregarded and not recognized [he is one whom God knows not].

    This verse spells out how we are to interact when we gather for worship. Everyone shares something, a song, a teaching, a tongue. It goes on to say that any spiritual leader will recognize this as a command of the Lord. Finally it says any leaders who disregard this command is “one whom God knows not”.

    Can that be right?

    1. Believers have been following an established Priesthood that has ignored this clear simple command of the Lord for many centuries.

    I think God is growing a new priesthood, not at todays seminaries, but in the crucible of life. His Holy Spirit is growing these priests in the wilderness, outside our fallen churches:

    Hi again Glenn,

    Let’s not skip any verses. I’ll use NASB since it gives literal word for word translation instead of summation. I’ll include a few more verses, 1 Corinthians 14:20-40.

    20 Brethren, do not be children in your thinking; yet in evil be infants, but in your thinking be mature. 21 In the Law it is written, “BY MEN OF STRANGE TONGUES AND BY THE LIPS OF STRANGERS I WILL SPEAK TO THIS PEOPLE, AND EVEN SO THEY WILL NOT LISTEN TO ME,” says the Lord. 22 So then tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers; but prophecy is for a sign, not to unbelievers but to those who believe. 23 Therefore if the whole church assembles together and all speak in tongues, and ungifted men or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are mad? 24 But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an ungifted man enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all; 25 the secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so he will fall on his face and worship God, declaring that God is certainly among you.
    26 What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. 27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, it should be by two or at the most three, and each in turn, and one must interpret; 28 but if there is no interpreter, he must keep silent in the church; and let him speak to himself and to God. 29 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others pass judgment. 30 But if a revelation is made to another who is seated, the first one must keep silent. 31 For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all may be exhorted; 32 and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets; 33 for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.
    34 The women are to keep silent in the churches; for they are not permitted to speak, but are to subject themselves, just as the Law also says. 35 If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is improper for a woman to speak in church. 36 Was it from you that the word of God first went forth? Or has it come to you only?
    37 If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lord’s commandment. 38 But if anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized.
    39 Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak in tongues. 40 But all things must be done properly and in an orderly manner.

    God has true Elders in various places, including some true Elders are even coming from seminaries.

    In the time of people such as Paul, there were false teachers all around. But he never saw them as true, because God does not affirm them, so they were not recognized.

    We do have to understand, that not everyone is authorized to do everything. And all must be carried out in an orderly manner.

    There always have been and still are local churches that do keep order as directed in scripture. I personally have no problem with that involving Elders requesting that people inform them before the gathering, of anything that anyone might want to say or sing to the assembly of saints. So that it can be included in an orderly manner and even reviewed before general presentation, to ensure it is in agreement with scripture. It is how many Elders handle these things, which helps to maintain order and prevents heresies from gaining an open door for presentation.

  18. Glenn Says:

    Independent Conservative,
    I really don’t think there are any Biblical elders at churches of ordained ministers[at least not on Oahu]. I think the ordained ministers rob the assembly of the headship of the Holy Spirit. They disrespect the gathering commands delivering their sermons rather than having participatory gatherings, yielding to anyone with revelations to share. Their deliver their sermons, and shipwreck their gatherings. If there were a true elder at that assembly, he would recognize God’s call separate!

    Make any sense? Do you actually have ordained ministers at particpatory gatherings in your area??

  19. IndependentConservative Says:


    It seems you want a meeting where the Elder simply cannot say “no” to you if you want to address everyone. I think our views of 1 Corinthians 14:26 differ on this matter and I doubt either of us will see it differently. You’ve shared your view of this and now I’ll explain mine. I don’t see 1 Corinthians 14:26 as a free license to speak without any sort of administration over who speaks by the Elders. What was happening that Paul was admonishing against in the letter was a case where there was no kind of administration at all over who was speaking. Everyone had a “tongue” just as 1 Corinthians 14:26 notes. So given the controls put on tongues in following verses, there is no way that 1 Corinthians 14:26 can condone everyone all having a “tongue” or all having everything, that was the disorder that was being admonished against. Whatever is said has to be done for the sake of edification of others, and I see no problem with an Elder ensuring that every word to be said is checked by them ahead of those words being said at a church meeting.

    You seem to want “participatory gatherings” where at times perhaps no Elder does any teaching, or will shut up if you claim you have something to say. From what I read in scripture, an Elder offering a message to everyone is of primary importance at church meetings. It is the Elder who is to be focused on preaching and teaching even more than anyone else. To claim the Elder should be silent for the sake of someone else is to in a sense MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING. It is the Elder’s duty to teach and preach above anyone else. No one else is held to such a standard, to be so devoted to ministering and administering the House of God.

    An Elder giving their sermon does not rob the assembly, but edifies it. It is God who affirmed the Elder is to be respected as the one who administers the House of God. So an Elder is only working in full agreement with the Holy Spirit when doing so and preaching. God’s Word and His Spirit are in full agreement, Elders have been given position to preach, teach and administer. Which includes during the assembly of the saints.

    I must also say, church history, while not scripture its self, fully agrees with one of the local church Elders offering a sermon during church meetings.

  20. Glenn Says:

    Let me just address your last assertion, that church history supports Elders offering a sermon during church meetings.

    I’ll admit that these sermons have been around a long time, but the key is how long. Viola and Barna in “Pagan Christianity” assert that sermons started in the third century when the time mutual sharing died out and a specialized clergy began to emerge. I refer to this specialized clergy as the Resurrected Levitical Priesthood, the Priesthood that Jesus came to replace!

    In the same way that classroom teaching is a poor substitute for real life experience, these sermons are a poor substitue for authentic seekers of Christ sharing what they hear, looking directly to Christ honoring Christ at real Communion Services.

    You’ve been alloted enough time to make your efforts to promote your own blog here. You might do better to buy advertising space on some other web site, instead of trying to promote yourself via comment. You seem to enjoy publicizing yourself, so much so, that you can’t stand that you don’t have free speech time at your local church meetings. Now you’re bitter and hoping to gain an audience online.

    You’ve cited the book “Pagan Christianity” as the source for your historical evidence. However, that book does not seem to take your view of there somehow being a sin for things not following your recommended “participatory gatherings” format. The same web site you cited in one of your own blog post ( gives details from that book. Which present a view that I think Christians honestly affirm:

    (A portion of the article “Are many practices and traditions in Christianity actually pagan in origin?”. A small portion [< 20%] is being copied here for non-profit educational purposes, which is coved by Fair Use laws.)

    (4) The sermon. The Bible clearly declares that God’s Word is to be taught (1 Timothy 4:11; 2 Timothy 4:2). There is undeniably a place for a godly man teaching other believers in a sermonic / oratory format. One problem is that many churches fall into the trap of one man being the sole teacher. Another problem is when churches, whether intentionally or unintentionally, convey the idea that passively listening to a sermon is all that God expects. In 2 Timothy 2:2, Paul encourages Timothy to entrust teaching to others who are gifted by the Holy Spirit for teaching. The presence of a non-participatory sermon is not the problem. The lack of opportunities for others to teach and/or the lack of willingness to teach can be a problem. One of the goals of the church is to make disciples, not pew-warmers. Many churches could do a much better job at recognizing the gift of teaching in others and training and encouraging them to use that gift. At the same time, no one should seek the position of teacher unless he really has been gifted by the Holy Spirit, a fact which can be verified by the testimony of others who can give witness to the presence of this gift. In fact, James 3:1 warns us, “Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.”

    As I’ve said earlier, I have no problem with people other than Elders speaking. However I also do not have any problem with Elders ensuring the words to be spoken are fully in agreement with scripture. This blog continually encourages saints to study scripture themselves with the Holy Spirit’s aid, not simply listening to someone else.

    And Glenn, I find it interesting how your initial quotation of 1 Corinthians 14 skipped over verses that specifically detail how women should not be playing the role of teachers over men in the assembly. I certainly hope that skipping was not out of some view that today the Holy Spirit somehow operates differently from what is documented in scripture.

    You’ve had your time, you’ve posted your 2 links to your blog in almost every one of your comments. We’ve discussed the matter and found that we disagree. Glenn, this is where I show you the door. While I agree some places have engaged in false practices, to claim all Protestant churches do the same because they don’t allow you to jump up and speak whenever you attempt, is not showing honest respect for the decency and order that God entrusted Elders to administer.

    I also disagree with what appear to be obvious self promotion efforts. I don’t mind someone sharing what they have to offer on their own web site. But you seem to enjoy promoting your own so much, that it has blurred your own view of scripture its self.

    Glenn, your commenting privileges on this blog have been revoked.
