More Shame For Earl Paulk

Disgraced “Bishop” Earl “The Abomination” Paulk has returned to the Atlanta news scene to bring further shame to his family – and add yet another blemish to the Body of Christ here in Metro-Atlanta. Several weeks ago I talked about Earl’s Neph-son’s embrace of Ekhart Tolle and the false inclusion theology, and I also took a closer look into the mind of Earl’s Neph-son, all born out of Unc-dad’s Earl’s fall from grace (again, you can visit Independent Conservative’s blog for background on the entire Paulk family debacle). 

But not to be content just fading into the sunset, Unc-dad Earl “The Abomination” is back in the news – having undercover meetings with Mona Brewer (his “victim”). Fox 5 News Atlanta has the undercover video of the meetings. I can’t embed them here, so click this link to view the initial report.

It appears as though Earl has been sending Mona Brewer money to get her to settle the case (approx. $2,000) – but why, since Paulk himself won the initial judgement and would receive $1M to pay his attorney’s fees? It just doesn’t make any sense to me. Then again, the entire Paulk mess makes me scratch my head…

In my opinion, this is more evidence of God’s judgement on a wicked man who brought shame and wrath upon his own family – and the families of thousands of former members of his church. I’m amazed that this man is still being called a bishop, especially in light of what the Word of God says about such a title:

1 Timothy 3:2-7 (New American Standard Bible)

 2(A)An overseer, then, must be above reproach, (B)the husband of one wife, (C)temperate, prudent, respectable, (D)hospitable, (E)able to teach,

 3(F)not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, (G)free from the love of money.

 4He must be one who (H)manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity

 5(but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of (I)the church of God?),

 6and not a new convert, so that he will not become (J)conceited and fall into the (K)condemnation incurred by the devil.

 7And he must (L)have a good reputation with (M)those outside the church, so that he will not fall into reproach and (N)the snare of the devil.

    At least this time Mona wised up and exposed him, Ephesians 5:11-12.

  2. 2 speaking truth July 7, 2008 at 10:38 pm

    I know IC, that’s the same thing I was thinking.

    It just seems as though something is going on – Mona is divorcing her husband and meeting with Paulk in places around Atlanta? They’re running a few more stories in this series so we’ll see if another shoe is going to drop.

    I still see this as a direct link to Earl’s evil deeds…

    I think they both need to find two big rocks and crawl under, I am sick of hearing about them.

    I have no sympathy for any “woman of God” who does not know it is a sin to commit adultery. All of the women who sinned with Earl Pulk, bar his granddaughter, were adult women who knew better. Is it that Exodus 20 is missing from their bible.

    I think they were all greedy women who probably all wanted to become “first lady”. So it did not matter that this no good skunk of a man already have a wife.

    MONA BREWER JUST NEED TO FIND A PRAYER CLOSET AND STAY THERE. I know I am comming across as cruel, but women like those give real born again christian women a bad name. They make me sick.

    Mona Brewer and her husband are getting a divorce? Was that mentioned in the report? Where did you hear that?

    Rascoe1, nobody thinks she is as “naive” about everything as she says. But we all hope she’s honestly now leaning on Christ and will “go and sin no more”.

    If she did not tell the media about those meetings after everything else she’s told and news of “secret meetings” came out via some other source, it would look even worse for her.

  5. 5 speaking truth July 8, 2008 at 12:31 pm

    Mona Brewer and her husband are getting a divorce? Was that mentioned in the report? Where did you hear that?

    Yup IC, they said it in the video on Fox 5 News. Since there’s no time meter, I can’t say it’s at the “2 minute mark” – but the newscaster mentioned that she sued her husband for divorce (almost at the halfway mark on the sliding bar below the video – directly before the video of the judge).

    You’re right – she had to mention the “secret meetings” but it just seems strange. All in all, NONE of this would even be happening if old Earl had remained true to his wedding vows – and his call from God all of these years.

  6. 6 rascoe1 July 8, 2008 at 1:20 pm

    IC, how about her just saying “go away you dirty, nasty, filthy old man”, and return any money he sent to her, and take out a restraining order on him if he refuse to go away.

    The lawyers and the media will say anything for sensationalism. Why would she want all of this negative attention again. There is nothing Godly in this behavior. Letting him hug her and smooch her, (my skin is just crawling) for the cameras’ sake, to prove that he is trying to get in touch with her. God knows he was trying to get in touch with her and God knows his motive. She do’nt need to prove this to anyone. The day she should have gone public and expose him, for the scoundrel he is, was fourteen years ago when he tried to have arelationship with her.

    I am just thinking, a person with a truely contrite heart would shy away from creating any negative media attention, as much as possible.

    AND obvilusly, “The Aboninable” Paulk has not learnt anything either. SECRET MEETINGS, why would he think he can trust this woman, after everything. Either he has gotten senile in is old age, or extremely arrogant. All and all, it really seem like Gods’ judgement for his wickedness, all the shame and disgrace he has brought upon his family and CHRISTIANITY as a whole.

  7. 7 speaking truth July 8, 2008 at 1:52 pm

    Both of them should take heed from scripture:

    1 Thessalonians 5:22 (King James Version)

    Abstain from all appearance of evil.

    Of course, none of this would be happening if they had heeded scripture from the very beginning… 🙄

    Amen,Speaking truth, Amen.

  9. 9 Independent Conservative July 8, 2008 at 2:32 pm

    ST, yea he mentions that divorce filing on her party rather “swiftly”. I didn’t even notice it till listening a 2nd time and listening for that specifically.

    Well he put up with her being a harlot and now she filed for divorce from him. Oh that smells like some rotten fish for sure! Looks to me like Bobby Brewer was all that a faithful husband could ever be and now she’s hacked him in the back AGAIN. What did he do? Sleep with somebody? As if she would have any right to cry after what she did.

    Rascoe1, if a pimp had a $1 Million judgment hanging over my head and wanted to meet. You’d probably see me at that Chick-fil-a too! Getting every word on tape and camera, just like she did. I think her attorney was instrumental in it all and I think her attorney gave her GOOD council. I think Luke 12:58-59 supports her meeting with him to try and see if there might be a means for her to avoid the judgment against her.

    I see nothing that OKs her suing Bobby Brewer for divorce, that is just awful. I pray they reconcile.

  10. 10 rascoe1 July 8, 2008 at 3:46 pm

    Ok, IC, that $1 million judgement, O BOY. Her trying to find a way to settle out of court is indeed biblical, but the media leak, I am not too sure. If she purposfully did it , I think that was a rotten trick. He might or might not have had something up his sleeve. He might just be guilty of being a big fool, this time.

    Do not believe I am taking up for him, because I am not. Its just that I am tired of seeing Mona Brewer in this capacity,……the victim. She is no victim, the only victims are her children, her husband (to a lesser extent),Paulks wife (to a lesser extent), members of his church (to an even less extent). The spouses had the biblical grounds to divorce, (Matt 19:4-9) and choose not to, the church members knew he was no good, (there were lots of warnings over the years). The children on the other hand did not have a voice in the matter, and here we go again.

  11. 11 Independent Conservative July 8, 2008 at 6:19 pm

    Hey Rascoe1,

    Yea the media leak and the reasoning behind it is interesting. I mean we already knew Earl Paulk is a literal walking abomination. If she wanted to meet to settle, she could have had things recorded without a media leak, but I’m sure Fox 5 Atlanta is one of the best in Atlanta when it comes to recording a conversation.

    And I don’t think her releasing it helps her case any. She’s still owing a million.

    Perhaps she thought Earl was going to really settle and then as the piece mentioned, they found Earl has no say at all now. So she felt USED AGAIN, by having met with him and all the hugging and what not with him calling her pet names. And perhaps she wanted it to be exposed that he’s played this trick and knew that this time she had it on video so nobody could say she “seduced” him. So I think it totally depends on her motivations for doing it. If to warn, so nobody runs back to Earl (because he claimed he had turned from such evil) it’s different than if she is somehow playing a vengeful game.

    Mona’s husband Bobby Brewer certainly had the Matthew 19:9 divorce concession on the grounds of her sexual immorality at the time of his learning about it all, but they reconciled then and TO RECONCILE IS ALWAYS THE BEST OPTION.

    As Fox 5 Atlanta mentioned in the report MONA BREWER SUED HER HUSBAND FOR DIVORCE. I don’t find that she could pull up Matthew 19:9, because as far as we know Bobby Brewer never committed adultery against her. If he has committed adultery against her, he forgave her indiscretion. If she would not grant him the same mercy, I think at best she’s facing a loss of rewards in 1 Corinthians 3:15 terms if she’s the Lord’s. I mean it all would make her a totally merciless hypocrite of a woman. And like I said, we have no knowledge what so ever of Bobby Brewer ever cheating on her, so Mona Brewer has no claim of sexual immorality against her husband that we know of.

  12. 12 rascoe1 July 8, 2008 at 11:14 pm

    My Brother IC, we will never know.

  13. 13 Independent Conservative July 9, 2008 at 11:56 pm

    Well it’s just a sick mess!

    I-Team: Bishop Paulk Secret Meeting, Part 2

    A lot there that could be talked about. But it’s just such a mess.

    And seems Bobby has been up to something since way back too.

  14. 14 rascoe1 July 10, 2008 at 12:50 pm

    What about Mrs Paulk, are they still together. He has absolutely no regard for her. He has dealt treacherously with her, Mal 2:13-15. Both Mona and Earl need to start taking some good bible studies. (IC would you like to volunteer).

  15. 15 speaking truth July 10, 2008 at 4:10 pm

    Good grief IC – I didn’t see the “part 2” until I looked at your link, and I agree that the more we learn the seedier it seems.

    Mona and Earl “the Abomination” seem to have a interesting relationship – and her marriage was in trouble as well.

    Before this story slides over into gossip (and we’re right on the edge – the more I learn about Earl and his proclivities the more dirty I feel), I still say that Earl’s behavior has tarnished, cursed, or otherwise affected EVERYONE in his circle of influence. And let’s not forget that this man was supposed to be a bishop/overseer!

    His life has been in DIRECT OPOSITION to 1 Timothy 3:2-7, so hopefully this latest shameful episode should be a clear warning to stay away from him, and any other Paulk (or other person) who supports him!

  16. 16 dickkopf July 11, 2008 at 1:59 am

    Hello, IST:

    Just so I am clear on this: is this cat, Paulk, still free to walk about in society?

    Thank you.

  17. 17 speaking truth July 11, 2008 at 9:48 am

    Hey dickkopf – Earl “the Abomination” is free to roam the streets of Atlanta freely. He was only convicted of perjury because he lied in a deposition that Mona Brewer (the “victim”) was his only extramarital affair. He later admitted to fathering his nephew (Donnie Earl), was convicted, and paid a $1,000 fine.

    The lawsuit brought against him by Brewer (the victim) was dismissed by a judge, and she was ordered to pay Earl $1M for his legal fees.

    And that, my friend, is how we got to the weird twists that you’re seeing in the article and comments above.

    It makes you want to take a shower to wash off all of the dirt after reading it 😐

  18. 18 Independent Conservative July 11, 2008 at 10:45 am

    Rascoe1, Earl Paulks’ wife remains with him. How much she is or is not a party to some of the mess is unknown, so we can only assume she’s a victim of Earl’s evil.

    IST – Yea this mess is pretty bad. Which is why I considered another post about it and decided against it. People know Earl is dirty and they know his nephew/son is dirty. But I don’t want to end up with a tabloid blog and I know you don’t either.

    Check out this post when you get a moment:
    The Prosperity and Word of Faith Movement are a Literal Joke!

    Imagine if the unbelievers in comedy get hold of the Paulk story?

  19. 19 speaking truth July 11, 2008 at 11:19 am

    Which is why I considered another post about it and decided against it

    Exactly IC. I was also going to go with the “part 2” but there’s no need – this is clearly a mess and there is no new biblical revelation we can add to it beyond what has exhaustively been written.

    Yeah, I saw that link to your article earlier this year and nearly fell out of my chair laughing 😆 I was heavily on the “Kool-Aid” when you wrote it last May, but it’s priceless. I don’t even think they could do a parody of the Paulk mess that would be funnier/sadder than the real thing 🙄

  20. 20 Dana July 15, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    I am not sure if this was already mentioned but Mona said, on tape, to Paulk, “I would have left him earlier if you would have let me.” Mona is in deep with him and he with her. The end of this is not near.

  21. 21 jillybeans July 28, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    Dana – Mona is not “in deep” with Paulk. The statement you quote was referring to very early in her marriage (before the abuse started) when she went to her Pastor (Paulk) for counsel because she wanted to leave her husband, who was an associate Pastor. Paulk refused to let her dissolve the marriage. Shortly after that meeting another Pastor approached Mona about being open to a new relationship God was leading her to that would have great significance in the kingdom of God.
    Also, note to all who think she does not have grounds to divorce her husband. Any of you know them personally? Anybody a fly on the wall behind closed doors? If you don’t know them personally you have no clue as to what she has endured in her marriage.

  22. 22 Champ August 17, 2008 at 1:52 pm

    This is what happens when a Pastor is allowed to “run” a church. People saw and knew that things weren’t right, but couldn’t even speak to anyone about it without being dismissed as not being “submitted to authority” or just being someone “offended.” People who left the staff were just “disgruntled” ex-employees and no one would listen to them. You can be sure there was a lot more wrong there than sexual immorality.

  23. 23 speaking truth August 17, 2008 at 2:45 pm

    You are 100% correct Champ this is Church Mafia 101. The sad part is that this is more the rule instead of the exception in churches (especially the mega’s) today.

    Sexual immorality is one of the symptoms, it’s certainly not the entire ailment.

  24. 24 morechristlike November 23, 2008 at 9:30 pm

    Leslie McFall has an interesting way to deal with the so-called exception clause in Matthew 19:9 that appears to allow for divorce and remarriage for marriage unfaithfulness.
    He has written a 43 page paper that reviews the changes in the Greek made by Erasmus that effect the way Matthew 19:9 has been translated. I reviewed McFall’s paper at Except For Fornication Clause of Matthew 19:9. I would love to hear some feedback on this position.

  25. 25 The Watcher February 11, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    Clearly, you guys feel you can judge everyone else but fail to see your own faults. You are only exposing your own inequity by so gleefully delving into and passing judgment on these people and their sins. What a group of self-righteous vipers! This is no way to treat people in trouble. The world is watching you.

    [ST:You’re right. We have the unmitigated gall to judge the words of a pedophile, sex-crazed false bishop/false teacher against the Word of God. Earl Paulk has cursed his family and anyone who has come across his path, and we’re a brood of vipers? Wow. The world is watching as God’s judgment is being poured out on lying degenerates like Earl and his ilk.]

  26. 26 dre March 31, 2009 at 10:50 am

    speaking truth is appears that you are under the influence of a conundrum…You want Paulk to be this perfected saint before the coming of the Lord, but yet and still you are pointing out his flaws…the Bible says we are not without sin…that had to include the late Bishop Paulk…as for him being the culprit, trust me, he got no blinded eye from me, I attended his church for many years, and do not excuse the behavior, but after reading scripture carefully, it just exposed his need of Jesus Christ like the rest of the faithful humans who have done some dirt that just never was exposed…to him that have an ear, let him hear…

    • 27 speaking truth March 31, 2009 at 12:14 pm

      dre – I am under no such conundrum, delusion or anything else. I do not (or in this case, did not) want Earl Paulk to be perfect, nor do I want anyone to be “perfect”. As a Christian, I strive to conform to the image of Christ – and I pray that other Christians do as well. Our job is to conform to God’s image in accordance with His WOrd (in totality and in context – not the bits and pieces that we like).

      When so-called Christians expose themselves (through word and deed) to be otherwise, then there is either repentance or rebellion.

      No one is without sin – and I certainly count myself as a sinner saved by grace – but we must strive for maturity in Christ.

  27. 28 dre March 31, 2009 at 10:52 am

    Also people need to quit acting like these women are free from guilt…they had choices and they made the wrong choices just like he did…but that’s their mess and they must deal with it..not I said FRED…LOL

    • 29 speaking truth March 31, 2009 at 12:18 pm

      So, dre, did the children who were molested have a choice in the matter – including members of Paulk’s own family? I admit, I scratch my head as to why women were seduced by Paulk – and why they bought his “Jesus wants you to sleep with me” garbage, but children are to be protected.

  28. 30 dre March 31, 2009 at 2:36 pm

    don’t you even try to throw the innocent children issue at me…I have a child and was a young guy when I started going to this church…I didn’t know about that when I was there, and there is no excuse for the behavior Paulk exhibited and I don’t excuse it, but again, there are so many issues undisclosed you really don’t know what to believe and not to believe at this point…if these things were going on, the adults are criminally negligent if kids were telling that these things were going on…but besides that point, Jesus is a lover of our souls, and even the most despicable of all sinners yes even those who molest our innocent children, doesn’t the Bible ask us to forgive them? Don’t contradict yourself “speaking truth!”

  29. 31 dre March 31, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    i understand what you are saying but do you believe people just sat under this man’s leadership allowing this to go unchecked…by the time most of his “former” members found out aobut this we had already left the church like 13-15 years prior to the published reports in the media…there were many things that were covered up, but I can say this much the man isn’t as bad a monster as the media has portrayed… I will admit, I was upset, hurt, mad and angry about the things I heard time and again, but what softened the blow for me was the fact that Jesus died for this man also…I had to forgive him for the things that kept coming out because the more I heard the more I found myself being hurt…it went from disbelief to the reality that this was a man who if all things about the negative experiences are true, then he needed help, but instead of the church doing what they needed to do if Elders and other adults knew aboutit, they did what a LOT OF SELF PROFESSING CHRISTIANS DO, AND HIDE THINGS UNDER THE RUG… much of this could have been stoped at the hand of responsible so called christians but no they would rather hide stuff than fix this mess, so no i don’t fault him alone, these women and parishoners who knew about this are just as guilty, but to say that he didn’t have the characterization of a Christian, if you don’t know the man you can’t judge him by media accounts alone…

  30. 32 speaking truth March 31, 2009 at 9:10 pm


    Rather than turn this into a “all Christians hide things” session, I’ll end this round-n-round session with the following (I know you left comments in multiple threads but I’ll just comment here, if you don’t mind):

    – All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

    – Repentance and belief upon the Lord Jesus Christ is the ONLY path to salvation and eternal life

    – As imperfect as we are, we still have a standard (God through His Son Jesus Christ) to chase after.

    – We must judge professing Christians by their fruit verses their words and intentions

    – Homosexuality is a sin, a sin that can be overcome by the Blood of Christ. Anyone who preaches acceptance of sin (homosexuality, lying, theft, murder, heresy, etc.) in congress with fellowship with Christ is teaching heresy.

    – Any Christian minister who preaches multiple paths to God apart from the singular and specific Blood of Christ ALONE is teaching heresy and leading others to hell.

    I was a bit scattered in my rebuttals, but frankly I’m tired. I stand by everything that I have ever said about the Paulk’s, and I will continue to measure EVERYTHING against the Word of God.


    You’re welcome to your opinion, position, personal biases, fond recollections of your friend Donnie Earl, your ambivalence about God’s irrefutable Word, your disdain/dismay/disappointment in “Christians who hide things” etc…and you’re welcome to espouse your commentary on blogs that agree with your perspective.

    This blog will not change apart from the leading of the Lord. And with that, I’m done.

  31. 33 dre April 1, 2009 at 1:10 pm

    and you can hate the paulks all you want, I don’t frankly have two good words about them other than the fact that they did some good in the Metro Atlanta Area in the 80′ and 90’s when I was coming up, but fact of the matter, you are no better than them because they got sinful desires just like the rest of humanity…
    Physician heal thyself is what I leave you with…Again Donnie Earl is only a person that I knew because I went to church with him while a youth..I never even really personally met the guy, but I know that you are only going off of media accounts about what you hear and that is fine…You keep talking about overcoming sins, when the theif was upon the Cross how much time did he have to overcome thievery…if you don’t know what you’re talking about and who you are dealing with, the best method of making yourself out to be legit, is to shut up while you still have a chance…LOL

    • 34 speaking truth April 1, 2009 at 7:22 pm

      Like I said dre – I’m done with you. I tried reasoning with you logically, which is pointless. Even in your attempt to get the last word, you still missed the point of the Paulk posts – quite frankly this blog in general.

      So I’ll take the last word on what was your final comment on this blog…and again, I am done with you.

      Thanks for stopping by, now move it along…
