I am truly hurt after hearing news about my mother church FOM. All to often now we hear that one of our well respected leaders have fallen under the attack of the enemy or self infliction. I want to start off my saying I was under this ministry, a mighty move of God, and it was very painful for me to hear this allegations.
Tell me, have God's people under false attack, or have we truly come into the last days where the bible tells us that many shall fall away.
Please help me out with this one.

HOUSTON – Federal prosecutors have charged the leaders of a southwest Harris County church with student loan and FEMA fraud.
Prosecutors on Thursday unsealed the indictment against Eric and Sheila Washington, the pastors of the Fishers of Men Worship Center.
The secretary and treasurer of the church were also charged.
Prosecutors claim the accused would recruit church members who were students, file for student loans in their names and pocket the cash.
They're also accused of overstating the number of Hurricane Katrina evacuees who stayed in their church to get more money from FEMA.
If convicted, the suspects face anywhere from five to 30 years in prison.
