    Interesting. I knew James Anthony Colyn very well, having attended his church for many years. I can tell you first-hand that this man was a manipulative monster. The abuse many of us suffered at his hand – physical, spiritual and sexual – was widespread. He used to drive around the city of Glendale, on the lookout for those of us who were sinning. He found me on several occasions, smoking cigarettes. I was hauled back to his church office, stripped of my pants and beaten. We were taught that Roman Catholics are going to hell, that the AntiChrist would likely be a future Pope – if not the present one. And now he runs Jim Colyn and Associates company out of Crossville, Tennessee. Amazing.

    It’s interesting as the whole “Thomas Road Baptist Church” listing here is a new one one me. I also attended that church for some time. Dave McWatters, Pastor Delbert Lloyd, etc. I do not recognize the name you have listed here.
