According to the Christian Post on Dec. 19, the cause of Pastor Zachery Tims' death has been released after his mother fought for over two years not to have it released.

It was on Aug. 14, 2011 when the 42-year-old Florida megachurch pastor was found dead in the W. Hotel in Times Square in New York City.

The New York City chief medical examiner's office released a statement on Thursday saying the well-known pastor died accidentally from "acute intoxication by the combined effects of cocaine and heroin."

YBPDLN Ping List Ping!

The YBPDLN Ping List is generally published infrequently, but based on the exploits of the megachurch pastors, posts can spike for a period of time. If you would like on or off of this list please FReepmail me.

Because 18,000 People Can’t be wrong!

Oh darn! Hope this doesn’t hurt the reputation of either cocaine or heroin at all.

Don't they call that a "speedball?"

And isn't that what did John Belushi in?

When you are racking all that coin, it is that wild man operating in ones carnal nature that wants a little kick. Without self control, one will do anything, including barking like a dog while wearing a dog collar.

Many times, the only thing keeping an addict from the drugs is the lack of money. He looks at $10k in the bank account and he sees a weekend of coke and horse.

See “Slash” from Guns and Roses. He did the same thing except he went through the cocaine first.

It seems to be a keyword here at FR. Find it under "Keywords" up near the top of this page, just under the article. You can click it.

Or click here for the same result.

Generates a long list of troubled pastors, many of them associated with megachurches or televangelism.

Not only will people do it, they’ll pay good money to have a woman in thigh boots tell them to do it!

I know the “PDL” in it stands for “Purpose-Driven Life”, one of those megachurch self-help crazes from a few years ago. Basically, it’s a ping list mostly about the antics of wacky megachurch leaders.

The man without a purpose is a man who drifts at the mercy of random feelings or unidentified urges and is capable of any evil, because he is totally out of control of his own life. In order to be in control of your life, you have to have a purpose—a productive purpose . . . . The man who has no purpose, but has to act, acts to destroy others. That is not the same thing as a productive or creative purpose. — Ayn Rand

Without the self-control, one can spend their money on all kinds of fantasies and even cause their own death. Look at what happened to Michael Jackson. The anaesthetic, propofol, was taken to cause wild sexual hallucinations. The doctor who administered it, lost track of time and did not take out the IV in time.

In fairness to Jacko, at least he wasn’t a Megachurch pastor.

Slash is still recording. We had a dragon named Slash, but he died.
