Letter from Sydney Case (March 26, 2018)

Star Scott:

     Ok, let me get this straight: you want to meet with Molly Fitch ALONE? Are you crazy? My husband, Molly's former pastor, would never even think of meeting alone with a woman! Or are you planning on having your underlings there to intimidate her? No good pastor I know would ever tell a woman that.
     My friend is brave enough to take on a pit of vipers in their calvary temple den, but yet she is scared of a meeting with you? Well, I think that you are terrified of being exposed for what you are and that is why you don't want credible witnesses at a meeting. (Although I doubt you even intend to meet with her at all). She is not your average doormat, is she? Star Scott, let me give you a word from the Lord:
Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron. 
     If there were ever a guy whose conscience has been "seared with a hot iron," then that would be you. Notice I can't even call you a man.

A Letter to Pastor Scott (March 22, 2018)

Dear Pastor Scott,

     I just heard this song. And I thought of you. You have been a monster to our family. Made my children sigh and cry for mom and dad and sister. Instructed my husband Tom to dismantle our family. Caused untold pain and suffering in our extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. But you can be forgiven, by us. You can be forgiven by God as well, but you must start doing the right thing, and stop doing bad things. You have broken lives littered behind you like broken toys of a spoiled child.
     Pain, exposure, justice or injustice, does not produce salvation. Only believe on Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved. He did it all. And that’s is all there is to it.

A Letter from the Community (March 21, 2018)

Dear Calvary Temple and Fitch children,

     I just got done reading the email exchange between Molly Fitch and her son Jonathan. To me, there were two things that really stood out. One was the humility I saw in Molly's email when she requested a meeting with your pastor. It was clear Molly was troubled by Jonathan saying that she had put her children through hell by not meeting with Star Scott. I wonder why it is more important for Molly to meet with Star Scott rather than her own children?  Why haven't you children even sat down with your own mother to hear her side of the story?  Doesn't it say in the bible (Proverbs 18:13) "He that answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame to him?"  The bible says to honor your mother and father. This is one of the Ten Commandments from God and it is NOT UP FOR DEBATE.
     The second thing I noticed was the coldness in Jonathan's response to his own mother. It seems like Jon would have been overjoyed to arrange a meeting; it was exactly what he said his mother should do. How is this okay that those who have wanted a meeting with their family members are not allowed to at the whim of Star Scott. Shouldn't your pastor want restoration of families?
     Something else that I am sickened by in Jonathan's response concerns the statement: "unconditional repentance". According to Star Scott, the pastors and congregation of Calvary Temple  know the bible better than everyone in this area, including local pastors. I challenge you to find IN THE BIBLE, Jonathan, the scripture "unconditional repentance".  I can find no example of Jesus teaching it, the disciples practicing it or the epistles supporting it. Therefore, it is false. It is not up to Star Scott or you, Jonathan, to decide if someone can be forgiven.
     Scripture says: 1 Timothy 2:5  For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
     Star Scott is not your mediator. Why does he require everyone to repent directly to him?
     Psalm 32:5 I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD.” And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.

With aching hearts over broken families, shattered lives, destroyed reputations and relationships - but most importantly (in our opinion) those who have lost faith in God because of the actions of Star R. Scott and the leadership of Calvary Temple, Sterling, VA, we write this letter to its members, its satellite groups, members of the community, and all who have been the victims of abuse - spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, and sexual. 

Our hearts broke again as we read Molly's post from March 14, knowing all too well the utter sadness and pain, at the hand of one who has so completely brainwashed innocent victims.  It brought back all the emotions - heartbreak, frustration, anger, etc., from an all too familiar scenario played out in our own family late in 2009 as we anxiously and fervently pursued restoration with our children and two grandchildren.  While some of the details differ, sadly - but predictably, the end result was the same. 

We were thrown out of Calvary Temple in 2007 and though we were told we were still "Christians", we were immediately cut off from any contact with our family still attending there.  Through our attempts to reconcile, we actually had opportunity to meet face to face with our daughter Sarah, her husband Mike, and our 7 month old twin grandsons, Kevin & Ryan whom we had not met.  Similar words were spoken, "You need to repent".... of what I asked?  Accusations were made, and my question then was, "why has the offended one (Star R. Scott) not come to try and resolve this?  In the Bible, it is very clear that the principle of Matthew 18:15-17 requires one to come to a person with an offence and try to reconcile."  The verses read:

Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’  And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church.

I stated that it seemed Star R. Scott had not done as the Bible instructed, but in fact had only "told the church" and then forced a separation of us from our children.  After some discussion on this, we were agreed on this biblical principle and the next step was for Mike and Sarah to arrange a meeting with their minister, Star R. Scott.  We parted with assurances that we loved each other and even heart felt hugs.  However when days had passed with no response, I questioned them on the status. 

"We cannot be reconciled Pastor Scott said he does not need to meet with you" was the only response we received via text message.

So, it is pretty clear - this man does not want reconciliation to happen.  Sadly, he refuses to obey and follow the precepts of the very Bible he claims to teach and follow.  In fact, he misuses the Bible to further his own agenda, leaving devastation in his wake.  He feeds on his ability to control and manipulate others through his distortion of Holy Scripture.

We continue to speak out, warn, and pray that this man will repent and stop his evil deeds, and that members of this congregation who have been deceived by him will have their eyes opened to the truth.  This is especially important to us and all who have come to understand just what Star R. Scott does and who he is.  You see, life for a member of Calvary Temple is a life of control and manipulation.  Information is strictly controlled and messages are formulated by Star R. Scott to present a picture, a scenario that he wants portrayed.  Details are not only left out, but altered to suit his purposes.  Indeed lies are told - and trusting followers could not believe that this man who represents himself as "called and anointed of God" could ever do anything wrong.  This is also why many people stay there - they don't have the truth, they have only what Star R. Scott wants them to know, and that is far from the "complete, real story."  So you see, really we cannot be silent. 

Some have said, if you would just be quiet and not criticize or speak out against them, maybe he would let you reunite with your children.  But that allows his manipulation and control to continue and it makes us a part of his evil, virtually erasing his wrongs in the eyes of the people.  Aah, but not so in the eyes of God!  The bottom line here is that if we know something is wrong and don't speak out against it or try to correct it, we are just as guilty.  

 "It is a sin when someone knows the right thing to do and doesn't do it."  James 4:17 (CEB)

We continue to trust and believe that the God who created this universe, the One who loves us more than we love ourselves, and gave His Son for us will sustain us, will keep us, will reunite us with our loved ones, and will deal with Star R. Scott according to his sins.  We miss our daughter and son in law, we long to know our (now) three grandchildren, but we will not compromise God's true Word or our relationship with the One who gave His life that we might live.

For all who have been the victims of abuse - spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, and sexual - at the hands of Calvary Temple or any one else, we offer these words with hope and prayer that they will comfort, encourage, heal, and restore...

I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
(Psalm 121)

     I have been following Molly Fitch’s blog awhile. It’s my opinion, and that of friends, the pastors in that church are not to be trusted. Our church considers this a dangerous place, and we are praying it will be exposed.
     And now it seems things are starting to be exposed everywhere. God is definitely at work, he knows all churches sins, just read Revelations. God bless you Molly for not giving up on getting your kids back. I know God hears you.

A Letter from the Community (March 18, 2018)

To the so-called pastor of Calvary Temple Church, Sterling, Virginia,

Who do you think you are? God? You are demanding repentance in order for a mother to see the children she raised to love God and family? Because she?

Nothing. She has done nothing. You told Tom Fitch to break her. Remember? And he nearly succeeded. We have watched her mourn and fight for these kids for nearly seven years. And I for one am sick of this. You are a charlatan. A false shepherd, a false prophet, a thief, a liar, a slanderer of parents, a divider of families, a wolf in sheep's clothes. The lowest hell is not deep enough for you, and when I think of you using the Bible to break people, it makes me nauseous. You make real Christians groan and cry for justice. That God would stop you from this madness!

The only thing Molly Fitch has done, is be honest, brave, faithful to the truth of Gods love, faithful to her husband (go figure), and not give up her kids to you. And why should she? You stole their hearts and minds from her, while you had her husband threatening her for 3 months that unless she totally obeyed him and you, she would never see those kids again. And then you continue to slander her by controlling her kids until she (somehow?!) complies with your bizarre request. If that is not blackmail and intimidation, I don’t know what is. In my opinion you should be in jail.

Dear Calvary Temple,

Ok, so let me get this straight. This pastor Star Scott refuses to meet with a woman whose kids attend his church and refuse to see their mother. Is that about it? Gee, no wonder people protested across from this so called church. Thank God none of my family goes to this place. More like a cult than a church.  Why isn't he telling these kids to apologize to their mother? This pastor seems to have complete control over everyone. What a mess. My advice to everyone in that place, get out while you can.

A Letter from the Community (March 17, 2018)

Dear Fitch children,

Yesterday morning I read the recent correspondence between you and your mother. I am at a loss to understand the response from Pastor Scott. But I am going to attempt to understand the response from the perspective of Pastor Scott's insinuation that your mother is in sin and needs to repent. I will point out to you that she only asked for a meeting.

The email from Jonathan alleges that Pastor Scott believes your mom is in sin, and although she asks to meet with him, he refuses until certain requirements are met, (placed on her by Pastor Scott, not by scripture.) My first thought is: would a true shepherd be quick to help a "lost sheep"? Of course. Why can’t your pastor meet with your mom? And then rejoice, if she had repented of the unnamed and alleged sin. A meeting would give Pastor Scott a chance to tell her all her sins. If there are any. The fact that he refuses to meet, unless she meets certain criteria; meeting with him alone only, and meeting with him only if vague conditions (like: unconditional repentance) are met, causes me to assume he does not ever want to meet.

The phrase "unconditional repentance", I have researched and find no scriptures either in the Old or New Testament. I assume your pastor means no one should expect anything in return for repentance. In other words, your mom should not expect to see you children just because she might have ‘repented’ to your pastor. The fact is, why on earth wouldn't she be allowed to see her children???

Is there another reason why your mom is unsuitable to meet with Pastor Scott and then see her children? I can only think of one reason. He doesn't want you to see your mom because you will learn the truth about what was done to her when she was put away by the leadership of Calvary Temple.

Letter to My Children (March 14, 2018)

Dear Jonathan, Sarah, Joshua and Christina,

     I don’t know what to say. I received Jonathan’s email three days after I sent Pastor Scott a request to meet (because Jonathan insisted I go see him ALONE, which I am very reluctant to do, actually scared to go see Pastor Scott alone...). What do I say to the response? You know I have asked repeatedly...what have I done? You know I have tried many times to meet Pastor Scott along with one or more of his former and present pastors... I am sad, tired, puzzled, its like I am beating my head against a wall.
     Every contact I have had with you kids or past and present leadership of Calvary Temple, has been written in this blog. To keep the facts recorded. I don’t understand ] Pastor Scott. I don’t understand his reasoning. Why won’t he allow you children to have contact with us?

I love you so much. I will not give you up.

God bless you dearest dearest children,

Letter to Joshua (March 1, 2018)

Josh, Gretel noticed the writing on your t-shirt...I laughed because all I notice is all your faces. You are all happy, and content with each other. I love you all and will never give you away to others. You belong to our family. God gave you to us. And he did NOT take you away from us. Bad men have.
