Politically Active Pastor Cleared of Theft

BY BUDDY NEVINS

A politically active pastor who once worked for former Sheriff Ken Jenne has been cleared of stealing from his church.

Allen B. Jackson broke into tears when Circuit Judge Bernard Bober threw out the charges against him.

“There was no evidence submitted of any fraudulent conduct on Mr. Jackson’s behalf,” Bober is quoted in the Sun-Sentinel. “He probably thought he did the right thing, he put the money in a trust account until the dispute was resolved.”

Jackson was running for county commission when he was busted and was forced to drop out of the race.

Shortly after the directed verdict, Jackson wrote the following to Browardbeat.com. He was referring to the original post on his arrest and the numerous comments it drew.

Here is Jackson’s e-mail:

 

This blog has been like a basketball game. Very entertaining for 4 quarters but whats most important is not entertainment, but outcome, who won the game? Who was victorious? A lot of slams dunks and good three pointers looked really good, but the team that has the most points when the clock runs out is the team that wins, so all the hoopla about the dunks and excitement really meant nothing. There has been a lot of slam dunks on me on this blog and a lot of 3 pointer accusations that looked really good and have been very entertaining, but that’s all. TODAY, WEDNESDAY JUNE 8, 2011 the game is over and through GOD I HAVE WON THE GAME AT THE END! TODAY THE JUDGE REFUSED TO ALLOW A JURY TO HEAR ANYMORE OF THE LIES AND THE JUDGE THREW THIS BOGUS CASE OUT BECAUSE IT WAS BROUGHT BY LIARS!!!!!!! Derrick Kerr, Angela Lynch Franklin and Shaun (Dagobar) Innocent are 3 LIARS who’s lies have ran it’s course. I NEVER LIED AND IT WAS PROVEN TODAY!!!!!!!! I pray that these vicious comments w
ill cease and that you people who crucified me would ask God for forgiveness.

Romans 8:31 “If God be for me, who can be against me”

Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon formed against me shall prosper and EVERY tongue that rises up against me shall be CONDEMN”

The TRUTH has prevailed!!!!!!!! I will pray for God’s mercy for all of you who said all of these nasty things about me!

Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do!

Pastor Allen B. Jackson

    It sure looks like justice was served. In Pastor Allen B. Jackson’s darkest hours evidently his faith helped him to prevail. And, the decision by Circuit Court Judge Bober provided deserved vindication for the good pastor.

    LOL
    Ok “PASTOR” u really have so much time on ur hands that u are sitting there calling my name. U are ans ass. A Pastor who steals, lies, have sex with women in the back of his church is not the pastor i want to preach to me. ur wifeof 2 months left u because she found out u were a crook. u need to crawl back into ur corner and sit down

  3. Upset says:

    I am not surprised that Allen Jackson took time out to talk about other people. That is the kind of person he is. No CLASS. Just shows that the church was right. Go sit down somewhere and preach to the idoits who will listen to u. Shame on u. CROOK, CHEATER, are just some of the names that come to mind. Remember u were married and got some other women pregnant. why don’t u talk about that if u want to talk about something.

  4. Believer says:

    The judge rules Mammon but God will judge the “pastor” in the end.

    Mathew 16-19-21: You can not serve both God and Mammon

  5. Mick says:

    I am a little surprised that a man of “GOD” would take time to go to a web site and call people names. Hmmmm. Guess he is not such a christian after all. WOW. This is who people go to church to listen to on Sunday? Guess he needs to stop quoting scripture and to read the scripture more. Mercy me. I would never want to be lead by a man that has so much hate in his heart for other people. I pity his followers because they will all have to answer to ther real God.

  6. Angels777 says:

    WOW! The Pastor won and you all hate it! If he had lost then you all would be celebrating, so why can’t he celebrate???? The bible uses the word “Liar” so how is the Pastor calling anybody names???? And why are you people such cowards and you won’t even use your real names, the Pastor did!!!!!!! I will be attending his church this Sunday because it’s obvious that GOD is with this man!

  7. strengthenbyGod says:

    I think the fight has just begun! The Pastor Jackson I know is not going to let the board and the lauderhill police department and dale holeness get away with what they did. Lawsuits are on the way……………And that old Pastor…Pastor Tony better not get comfortable either……..

  8. Death Frog 3 says:

    I have a different take on this. Pastors just like everyone else are human. The fact is he was vindicated by a directed verdict. That means that the judge listened to the evidence and decided there was not enough evidence to proceed.

    My understanding is that the judge went a step further and actually said that Mr. Jackson did exactly what he was required to do.

    This looks like a case of using the police to settle church/office politics.

    As a Christian, I would hope that some of the allegations regarding Mr. Jackson’s rendevous are false.

    I would also hope that he would be more Christlike. Jesus did not call his accusers liars before he was crucifixied. He did not gloat after His resurrection.

    So Mr. Jackson, please, I under stand your human (and imperfect) but use this opportunity to show that although you struggle, you want to be Christlike.

  9. GOD IS ABLE! says:

    Well the liars got caught in their lies, and the victor came out victorious. Who’s looking like fools now? God showed all of you up and you know it! Stop being all defensive when you guys know what you did to this man of God was WRONG. God will get ALL of you in the end.

    Derek, you of all people should be ashamed of yourself. You blasted this man to pieces when you had no proof of what he did. Coming from a so-called “Christian” man, you sure were quick to judge the man before you had any proof and quick to slander his name. You guys all had agreement or understanding with him, the lawyer, and the leaders of the church, and then you turn it around and crucify him like he did something wrong. This could have been resolved without going through the court system, but you decided to slander his name… This reminds me of the pharisees, after Jesus rose from the dead, they STILL continued to lie to cover up their OWN faults!

    Pastor Allen’s members obviously fasted and prayed for him and with him, that he may overcome this obstacle, and he did. God was obviously listening to them. All of his members love him and no matter the amount of lies that you guys can continue to spit out, that won’t change a thing.

    Thank God it’s all OVER. Leave him ALONE now and go live your OWN lives! Or, if it’ll keep you happy, go find someone else’s life to mess up.. May God have mercy on ALL of you..

  10. Responsiblity says:

    This is why trial by bloggery is unworthy. A man running for public office was arrested for what a dubious reason. That is bad enough personally for him. From a societal view, it kept him from competing for that office. That has very serious implications.

    Charges should never be filed except under clear cut reasons. For this case to be thrown out by a judge for insufficient cause says a lot and people should think about that long and hard. It makes what happened look political and if that’s ever proven it will tear this democracy to shreds.

  11. strengthenbyGod says:

    why are the positive post’s disappearing from this post???? Buddy Nevins must be embarrased because he is only allowing the negative post’s to stay up

  12. Madea says:

    Thank you pastor for the example how to lie cheat and steal without intent and get away with it oh and use verses to defend yourself

  13. strengthenbyGod says:

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you all are still accussing him of stuff???? Just like there was no proof that the AWESOME Pastor stole money, there is no proof that he ever did anything else that you cowards are accussing him of! Cowards, all of you! Leave the Pastor alone because you will regret it when God gets finished with you!

  14. strengthenbyGod says:

    This is to death frog 3, his name is Pastor Jackson and not Mr. Jackson. And as for name calling, you’re wrong. Jesus blasted the Pharisees and the scribes and called them vipers, hypocrites and Jesus said woe unto to them!!!!!!! Woe unto them, derrick, angela, shaun, pastor tony, ed miller, pastor mike…..and the rest of them!

  15. Candid says:

    Innocent people go to prison often, while the real crooks get off. I pray for people in Allen’s destructive path of the blind leading the blind.

    He will do this again, as he has before, and the judge will reverse the decision based on evidence that gets presented, not the pretense that Allen hides behind.

    He mentions people who have a long upward reputation, while his own reputation is like the dog chasing his own tail. He will be back in the news, back on a lawsuit, and back in court. That’s who he is: the preacher man who can’t stay out of politicking. Grandstanding Allen.

    Go Buddy!

  16. Nicole says:

    right thing
    does he know the meaning
    give back the money

  17. Deborah Potamkin says:

    Now that Pastor Allen is acquitted what do you have to say the person who has been posting fake blogs such as Shaeem, Madder, Cruzan, Mayla, Mad, Frandig, has to say. Your IP address is from the same computer. It takes a pathetic person to do that. You are someone, who has a lot to lose to try to create fake name to blog about this man. A Pathetic person you are. The color of your hair should determine the level of your intelligence. Now that he is FOUND NOT GUILTY. What are you going to blog about next? The time you take creating a bunch of fake names such, as the one you did above look at your bible and pray for the sin that you have done. The lies you have told, the things that you have done to people that was so wrong. The bottom line is he has been found NOT GUILTY. Go create fake name and blog about that. He is coming after you and the truth will come out and the entire fake name you created to log on like Cruzan, Shameem, Mad, Madder and Frandig will be revealed. Now let’s see you blog about that he is coming get ready the fight has just began. NOT GUILTY blog that. It takes a person with a lot to hide to create that much to speak about him. NOT GUILTY! Blog that

  21. Deborah Potamkin says:

    love is blind

  22. Deborah Potamkin2 says:

    Lets see! Love is blind to the one who stood by and allow a daycare center TO change hands from a church to a one person owner is being blind. Think about it, so many people give money on Sunday for what was called VISION fund Sunday to build something and then to hear that it was not the case or to hear that those BLACK folks just did not understand that is was not part of the church was wrong! There are families that went with no meals to give into VISION funD Sunday. Was it right that checks were written for a VISION and it was not carried out as planned? There are over 600 church members who gave funds for VISION fund Sunday and to hear that these Black Island people were stupid and did not understand WHAT WAS SAID was wrong. Tell me Deborianh Potaminkin who wrote love is blind, are you the one benefiting from the VISION fund or are you here to ensure that the truth don’t come out. Look at the facts for years the daycare claimed TAX EXEMPTION status under the churches name. So who really owns the daycare the church or someone else? These are not lies these are facts. Stop trying to hide the truth let the truth come out. If the church do not own the daycare why was the daycare using the churches Tax exempt status, why was all the employees from the daycare check had the church name on it. All the whys and no answers!

    blogger mamma came back

  24. Madea says:

    blogger mamma back

  25. Deborah PotamkinTWO says:

    YES ALLEN SHOULD GIVR BACK THE MONEY!
    BUT WHAT ABOUT THE DAYCARE CENTER WHY YOU ARE NOT SAYING GIVE THAT BACK! WHAT ABOUT ALL THAT WAS TAKEN FORM THE CHURCH WHY NOT SAY GIVE THAT BACK. IS THERE ONE SIN THAT IS GREATER THAN THE OTHER! NO ONE IS BETTHER THAN THE OTHER. STOP HIDDING BEHIND THE TRUTH OF GIVING BACK ON ONE SIDE AND NOT THE OTHER. OK ALLEN TOOK MONEY, BUT BASE ON THE LAW HE DID NOTHING WRONG. THE DAYCARE USED THE CHURCH TAX EXEMPT STATUS FOR YEARS THAT IS ALSO STEALING. THE CHURCH IS A 501C3 AND THAT WAS ALSO ILLEGAL FOR ANY ONE TO CLAIM TAX EXEMT STATUS UNDER THE CHURCHES NAME IF IT WAS NOT A PROPERTY OF THE CHURCH. SO ALLEN TOOK MONEY, IF THE DAYCARE DID NOT BELONG TO THE CHURCH THEN SOMEONE WAS DEFRAUDING THE GOVERNMENT BASE ON WHAT THE DAYCARE WAS CLAMING AS A TAX EXEMT STATUS UNDER THE CHURCH NAME. SO WHO IS BETTER ALLEN OR THE OTHER? ALL EMPLOYEES CHECKS WHO WORKED FOR THE DAYCARE WERE CLEARELY STATED THAT THEY WERE WORKING FOR THE CHURCH. SO LET ME ASK UPSET, MADDEA, AND CANDID WHO IS WRIGHT, SHOULD EVERTHING BE GIVEN BACK OR JUST WHAT YOU FEEL SHOULD?

  26. Confucius says:

    WHAT YOUR POINT. DAYCARE ALWAYS BEEN NOT PROFIT. LAWSUIT AGAINST DAYCARE WAS THROWN OUT OF COURT 15 DAYS AFTER HE ANNOUNCED IT. THE DAYCARE ALWAYS BEEN A PARTNER TO THE CHURCH. ARE YOU AGAINST LIVING WORD. STATE ATTORNEY FOUGHT ALLEN, JUDGE MADE HE TRUSTEE OVER THE VISION funD. WHO YOU AGAINST. HELP THE DAYCARE TO HELP THE CHURCH.

  27. Deborah PotamkinTWO says:

    Confucius you asked what is the point
    Point one I am a member of Living Word church and have been for 9 count them nine years. No I am not against the church. Your thought is if I opposed to what is being done at the church I am opposed. There are many members who are still there who are not happy with what went on with the daycare. Furthermore it is sad to see my now new pastor of the church having lunch with the former pastor who is Not Allen at a restaurant as if they are two best friends. it makes wounder what is going on?
    Point Two: The Daycare was using the CHURCH TAX ID for years and that was illegal. How do you explain that the Daycare is a partner of the church? When everyone told the members, the church never owned the daycare. Is it a Partnership where the church allowed the Daycare to use its exemption so that it could elude the government? Also I am against any person speaking down about BLACK people, thinking that it is ok to preach about things and don’t leave the life.
    Point Three: If the church did not own the DAY CARE why the employees who work for the daycare Paycheck has the church name on it. The misconception you have is because people come to the church they are happy with what went on. Many of us are not for Allen but also do not like what went on. We do not like what is going on!

  28. James says:

    Deborah, if you don’t like the way our church operates, then you should leave. Allen divided and stirred up strife which is evil in God’s sight. He never understood the structure of the church he tried to destroy. Think about that while you worship this morning.

  29. John says:

    watch Allen’s youtube for a laugh

  30. Peter says:

    Prove it by living an honorable life
    Bitter jealousy & selfish ambition in your heart
    You scheme to get what you don’t have
    Fight and wage war to take away from others
    Your motives are all wrong
    Your job is to obey God, who is law, the Judge

  31. Jesus says:

    Father, forgive them because they don’t understand what they do

  32. Deborah PotamkinTWO says:

    JAMES
    You are the woman sitting next to me in church. You are the man sitting neXt to me in church. All you can say is if I do not like it leave the church. You are supposed to be a Christian. Is it that way Living Word is set where no one can disagree with what goes on? I tithe. Yet you say to me if I do not like it leave. No Christian do or act that way. While you speak about how bad Allen is, and you say leave because I disagree with certain things. Who is bad you or Allen? Whoever you are go back and read Purpose Driven Life, because you disappoint me. I see things clearly after that series and NOW you say to me leave. You call yourself a Christian. Your KIND of Living WORD CHRISTIAN I DONOT NEED. This makes me upset and think are you on the former pastor payroll.

    its not win or lose, its how you play the blame

  35. Justin says:

    Those he mentions in his letter still have my respect. They have gone on to receive accolades while he wasted yet another year on one more court case. A few watch him promote his volatile public role.

    It’s a shame that it takes for some of us to expierence what others do in order for us to realize that we are no better then the next person.We need to face the man in the mirrow more often cause how can you say i am my brothers keeper when you condemn your brother but yet when you stand before your judgement day you expect mercy on you.For with the meassures you use to judge your brother,you too shall be judged.It’s not over,wickedness is always at work so continue to clean your closet.

  41. stanley jackson says:

    well well well Mr.Allan Jackson,now that you have made progress;why don’t you try returning some of da monies to your brother whome you took it from some time ago.A man shall never be blessed when he throws rocks at a glass builging and then hides his hands as if he is an ANGLE and does no wrong.

  42. stanley jackson says:

    The State may have thrown it out,but the guilt shall rise always.facing the man in the mirrow can be scary at times.
