|Helen and James Ross Ashmore have left "the organization" aka NTCC of A, Inc. Will Helen's sister Kathy Jordan and her hubby George Jordan follow suit? Will George Jordan's brother (Timothy) Paul Jordan and his wife Veneta follow them out? Will Helen's daughter and son-in-law Lorraine and John DiFrancesco leave too? Will James and Helen reconcile with her disfellowshipped son Jerry aka Larry Duran and his many children and wife Penny Hampton? So many questions as this former NTCC Board Member and alleged hatchet man and his wife flee from the wrath to come... (IMO)|
Is this another split for the NTCC?
James Ross Ashmore has a Twitter account that he hasn't updated; it lists him as "Pastor NTCC North Chapel at Liberty Station Jesus Preacher". He also has a link to his blog called "JesusMyGlory [dot] net". He also, apparently, favors his one grandson not sired in an adulterous relationship, as that lad's name forms his Twitter URL being preceded and followed by the digit 1: thus http:twitter [dot] com/1bryden1. We think it's pretty tacky to penalize your other grandkids (the children of adulterers Penny Hampton and Helen's son Jerry aka Larry Duran and Jerry's abandoned daughter; whom he left with his wife Christine when he deserted them to pursue Penny) for something they had no control over; but hey, that's the kind of guy James Ross Ashmore is. For years he blithely followed and was the henchman for serial adulterer Rodger Wilson Davis; but as soon as people found out that Jerry Duran ran off with Rich Hampton's wife, Penny, well, Jim decided to disfellowship them. Hmm. It's so typical that in the ntcc standards only apply to some people, not all. That is called Double Standards and is not godly. God has one standard for all. The following is an excerpt from Ashmore's blog and can be found by clicking into the tab labelled "What I Believe":
"I used to minister in a way that was perhaps more a ministry of judgment, trying to be like some preacher of the past like Charles Finney, Jonathan Edwards, etc.., only to find I was following a pattern that was not necessarily the pattern of God’s Gospel. I say this, NOT to get into an argument about whether these men were used by God or not, but all things must be tested by the touchstone of SCRIPTURE no matter how wise or logical things might appear to be since it is the Scriptures that will judge us, and NOT what other men have believed. Either those men are our examples, or Jesus Christ and the early Apostles are the intended examples given to us by God to follow. I am not sitting in judgment on such men of the past, they will stand or fall to their own Master, but I must minister as God has revealed to me, knowing I will be judged, NOT by those saints of the past, but by the Word of God."

If this is an apology, Jim, then 'you suck at apologies'! Here we find Ashmore admitting that he 'perhaps' had a ministry of judgment. What? There is no 'perhaps'. No question, Jim, you had a ministry of judgment; which really is not a ministry. Ministry means service. By no means does that apply to what you did from the pulpit and lectern. And what about all the souls that Ashmore has railed against over the years? I've heard tapes and probably still have some where Ashmore rails against people in Judgment; and I've seen his handiwork up close and personal during the many visits that he made to Servicemen's Homes and churches Stateside and overseas; where he ran people off while collecting large amounts of money along the way. If he wants to apologize to people, he should find some of the thousands of people he ran off over the years, and cut them a check for whatever tithe and offering money that he conned them out of. People were living off of grocery budgets of $20 a week and less while giving the majority of their income to the so called 'work of Gawd' where Ashmore, Davis and Kekel would spend it upgrading their mansions and buying luxury vehicles. Now all of the sudden we are supposed to think that Ashmore has changed and become a kinder and gentler preacher who focuses on the love of God? Why all of the sudden has he left? If Davis was still alive do you think Ashmore would be in such a hurry to bail on the ntcc? We all know the answer to that.
While Ashmore was in the ntcc, he was nothing more than a spiritual assassin. What was it that drove Moreno to kill his wife, four year old child and unborn child? Kinson had Moreno take him to the whorehouse to retrieve his wallet and Moreno reported it. Kinson was removed from that work and Ashmore was given the job of spiritually assassinating Moreno. Roland Moreno was ostracized by Ashmore and Blacklisted, which began a downward spiral in which the ntcc would never allow Moreno to find peace in the ntcc. By the time Moreno confided in Matt Reed, Roland was completely broken in spirit. Reed believed Roland and confronted Davis about letting Kinson be a Board Member when he had committed adultery. Davis quickly verified that everything Moreno had told Matt Reed was true by pointing his finger in Reed's face and telling him that it was not his place to involve himself in other men's adulterous affairs. H-E-L-L-O!
Ashmore was also dispatched to assassinate the character and spiritual lives of Lisa Norton and Lori Kelly in St. Louis, when Davis was trying to hide his own adulterous affairs from the congregation. Davis had been molesting and violating Lisa's 16 year old sister, Pam Norton, while her husband Johnny Jordan was working for Davis in the office. Johnny Jordan later raped Lisa Norton, (Pam's younger sister) and impregnated her by rape at the innocent age of 14. Lisa was then abandoned by her 'mother', (Barbara Norton) on Christmas Day at the behest of Davis. Davis moved and covered for the child molesting and raping Johnny Jordan by moving him and Lisa's older sister Pam and their 'mother' Barbara Norton Warwick up to Washington state. It was at this point that Ashmore was in the bully pulpit blasting Lisa and her best friend Lori, calling them "whores" and "sluts" in front of the whole congregation. Davis had Lisa's mom abandon her with her special needs brother Terry, and Davis ordered some of the brethren to remove most of the furnishings, clothing, dinnerware and the Christmas tree and presents from her house. Ashmore was the one who was dispatched to destroy a young girl to cover for Davis's child molesting and rape (Vaginal Penetration) of a minor.

I was also told that during a previous conversation with Ashmore, our source says that Ashmore told him that the ntcc no longer believed in the holiness standards that they once used to place people in hell if they did not adhere to or practice those standards. While looking at the updated version of the bylaws posted on the ntcc's site called myntcc [dot] org, I noticed that all of the so-called holiness definitions were removed. These rules in the ntcc bylaws were used to incorrectly indoctrinate people into living an awkward life never preached by Jesus; but the ntcc required members to adhere to these rules; which they called holiness. While they preached women should not wear make-up and ran young women out of their churches for "looking like Jezebel," many of the hypocritical board members' wives used foundation make-up to cover and hide wrinkles and blemishes. Verna Davis herself would wear pajama bottom pants at the Lodge on the NTCC campground; while women in many of the servicemen's works were forced to discontinue their career paths in the military because ntcc taught it was ungodly for them to wear pants. Hunh? Can you say Double Standard? Many church members left in tears because the ntcc would preach hell fire and brimstone to those who did not fit R-dub's definition of a Christian; and many of the brainwashed people from the ntcc were permanently and emotionally damaged.
James Ross Ashmore was at the forefront of shaping, preaching, teaching, and enforcing these false doctrines. He used the pulpit and lectern to harm many souls by railing on them mercilessly. And now he seems to think a half-hearted, self-justifying, feeble attempt at an apology on his lame web site will somehow make a difference? To me he is still the same snake. He's just shed his old skin. That's just my opinion. You think what you want. And please don't come on here and try to defend him. If you want to think that way, go tell it to The Moreno Family. See how well that works. Approximately one month after his pregnant daughter and grandchildren were murdered, Maria's father, Mr. Burton passed away; they say he died of a broken heart. I'd have to agree. These false doctrines that were rigidly / strictly enforced by the likes of Ashmore can have permanent eternal deadly consequences. Think about that.
