Chapter One

Past, Present and Future

In order to appreciate the messages in this book you must go back at least forty years pre-Laodicea days. Perhaps then as a parent, grandparent or any one with sensitivity can truly understand "THE ULTIMATE BETRAYAL". I am the youngest of three children and I grew up with both parents present, the late Sims F. Jenkins Jr. and Maggie W. Jenkins. However, I deviated from the values my parents instilled and became like unto the "PRODIGAL SON" (St. Luke 15:10). For example, I became a practicing thief, used drugs such as alcohol, marijuana and stimulants. My closest friend was Henry Williams who was better known as "MANN", my big brother and yours truly were known as "bro law". One aspect of our relationship worth mentioning is that of loyalty. Mann demonstrated that trait without question and that spirit of loyalty will last forever between his family and me. On the other hand I began to understand what it means to be committed. My peers recognized the bond between the two of us and only then did I begin to appreciate true friendship and the value of family. For example, on one occasion Mann's loyalty was shown when he stepped in between me and a gunman. Also one sunny day on the corner of North Street and Thirty-Third we were involved in an altercation where one man held me at bay with a pistol. Within seconds sirens can out of no where and we both walked away without incident. I was unclear why we were spared again; perhaps God was saving us for some special reason. However, I continued on the broad road that led to destruction with an arrogant attitude. Furthermore my riotous living began at thirteen and continued until I was twenty-two years old. During this time I became increasingly worst until my habits were daily. However, there were still times when I would reflect on the training my parents provided and desire to re-establish moral living. Those times didn't last long before I was rehearsing the old behavior. On one occasion a peer (Cecil) and I decided to "cut class" and visit another public school in the area. Once we arrived and began our tour we were caught roaming the halls. Shortly thereafter we were in the principal's office. Before we knew anything, juvenile officers were escorting us to Ryan Detention Center. After I refused too cooperate with the officers and threats of housing us at the Center, my peer convinced me to tell the truth. Weeks later we were facing our first judge in juvenile court for trespassing. Upon completing our day in court we both were given unsupervised probation for six months. Shortly thereafter, on another occasion I was arrested on May 31, 1974, fifteen days after I graduated high school.

During that time it was considered an honor in my environment to have been arrested and to have walked out of jail the way you went in. My lifestyle became automatic and I was good at whatever I did. On another occasion, one of my peers had enough wisdom to stop a plot to rob a local institution. I often share with Cecil how blessed we are that a Higher Power stopped such an outrageous plan. Sometimes I wonder where we would be if it were not for him pulling out at the last hour. Thank you Jesus! In addition one Saturday night after partying all night, I returned home with an "increased appetite"(munchies). Therefore, I decided to cook and during this process I passed out. Sadly, I didn't wake up until later that morning, where I discovered my parents, and an Aunt had put out the fire over the stove. Sadden by this situation and the thought of killing my parents; myself in a house fire along with my godmother (Aunt), the late Leola Anderson terrified me. How would the rest of my family live after that terrible ordeal or forgive me for such a negligent act? However, my madness didn't stop, in April, 1977, I began riding a motorcycle where it appeared I had a rendezvous with death. I remember riding my motorcycle sober on one occasion, the day my Father purchased it. Each time thereafter I was "under the influence" of a control substance. Unmanageable was perhaps an under statement. These spans of time I couldn't complete any thing nor could I maintain relationships with some of the most beautiful people in my sphere. There were times where I wanted to change however I lacked insight to do so. On occasions there were times I believed God was speaking directly to me. For example, one day I was under the influence of a control substance and saw a movie entitled "In search of Noah's Ark". That movie strongly suggested that there is a God. Shortly thereafter I was hit by a car board side on my motorcycle and walked away from the accident; Saved by Grace or happenchance? Additionally, my motorcycle stopped one night on top of the "Whiskey Bay Bridge" in Lafayette, La.; there was no shoulder nor street lights to aid in my recovery. In despair on top of this dangerous bridge a man stopped with his truck. Also this man so happen to have tie downs for a motorcycle as well as a large ramp. He agreed to help and we loaded my motorcycle onto his truck. He escorted me to my family home in Baton Rouge and all he wanted was directions back to the interstate. My Father advised the man to follow us to the interstate. After stopping at a traffic light with the man directly behind us he suddenly disappeared, an Angel from heaven or happenstance? At this point I was getting increasingly sick of my lifestyle however couldn't stop due to my inability to remain sober. Therefore I continued in my waywardness and disappointing people who loved me. During the early parts of 1979, a few of my friends suggested that we see the movie "The Late Great Planet Earth" at a local theater. Shortly thereafter I felt a strong conviction to make it right with God. In one sense, I began studying the Bible with two of my friends, Michael Bryant and Cecil Washington. Additionally, in March, 1979, an evangelistic crusade was held at the Baton Rouge Hilton. Each night heavy conviction came over me to REPENT and begin a new life. However my friends thought differently. The call came and I accepted my NEW LIFE IN CHRIST and made a complete change. Shortly thereafter I literally changed everything. I was baptized in the Baton Rouge Laodicea Church, April 28, 1979, at twenty-two years old where my love for God grew constantly. During this phase of my life I was so Grateful for the organization giving me a choice and a new way of living. The Lord truly became the center of my life. Each day I grew stronger and wiser knowing that God loved me in spite of my past. Living drug free was one of the best things that could have happened to me. The people in church were so spiritual until I thought they were Angels from heaven. The church provided the structure I needed and it literately saved my life by introducing JESUS CHRIST TO ME AGAIN.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

Romans 5: 8-9

Chapter Two

My Walk With God

Daily I grew spiritually and began helping others. In addition, I spoke with past friends and indicated how God had changed my life and they were invited to join the movement. Additionally, some visited my Church of worship and at least one was baptized. Also, one child hood friend, "Ronnie Burnt" was almost persuaded, however we both knew God was doing something special in our lives. Also, Mann didn't think I was serious due to the fact of my aggressive personality. However, shortly thereafter I noticed a change in his lifestyle and he too, began worshipping the Creator. Eleven months later Mann died in his sleep on March 18, 1980, two days before his birthday. His death was contrary to how others thought he would die. Only God knows the end from the beginning. After his death I continued to share the good news that Jesus saves. Shortly thereafter I transferred my church membership from the Baton Rouge church to the Laodicea church in the Southern Louisiana Conference (SLC). Immediately, I began providing Bible studies to anyone who was willing to know about the love of God. Souls were blessed and baptized as the good news that Jesus saves became a reality. Additionally, I began working in the church fulfilling several duties. Truly I was blessed and appreciated serving others in the church. This lifestyle continued in the church and trials and tribulations occurred, however I remained focus in the Lord. The 80's were special in that I began completing goals and maintaining relationships. In one sense, I met Violet E. Lyle and shortly thereafter we were married August 28,1983. In another sense, I completed my first degree and began my career in the human services field. As Violet and I grew together spiritually we decided to have a baby. Three years later, January 25, 1986, Kymberli Rachelle Jenkins was born. The 80's were special to us due to the birth of our daughter and blessing others through the word. In addition, God's hand was shaping our destiny as we were compelled to start a ministry designed to enhance the total person. Along with help from the late Pastor Albert Lyle, Violet's Father, we began to pray for directions. Shortly thereafter we were given the commission to go forward with "Health Preservation Ministry". Through this ministry we were able to help individuals with issues relating to alcohol, as well as other drugs along with tobacco products. Additionally, we provided lessons regarding diet and nutrition as it related to the body's temple. The ministry continued well in the 90's where we saw the hand of God in the midst. There were storms, however, we were able to go forward with the ministry. God was able to use us as we trusted His leading. On one occasion I was featured in the local paper September 12, 1992, sharing with hundreds of readers the advantages of a vegetarian diet. We kept going forward with our calling in spite of opposition. Also we continued to provide workshops, messages in songs and sharing how God can change one's life. In addition we emphasized the importance of fellowship within the body of Christ. Also, we shared the one thing that's needful according to St. Luke which is to sit at the feet of Jesus and learn of Him(St. Luke 10: 42). During this phase of our lives we believed that we could have conquered any trial with Jesus on our side just as the Hebrew boys withstood the fiery furnace (Daniel 3:25). Additionally it was a joy and a blessing interacting and observing our daughter grow physically as well as spiritually in the Lord. Kym (KJ) and I had a special Father and daughter relationship. Our love for each other increased daily and KJ and I did almost everything together. During one phase I wanted KJ to be a little athlete as she developed excellent hand eye coordination. At another phase I really wanted KJ to have a go kart since I grew up with a motorcycle. Well she didn't like that idea either. Our times together were special and the bond developed COULD NOT BE BROKEN. I still can hear her cries for Daddy when she was in distressed. Shortly thereafter, her mother got KJ involved in modern dance where she did well. I remember the times seeing her come out on stage with other little girls, however my eyes were only big enough for her. As we continued our journey in the 90's we developed better relationships with community and friends. There were several seniors in our church that we loved deeply, however there's one I'd like to mention, the late Earleen Alexander, my adopted grandmother from years past where our love for her grew over the years. There were times we cooked, cleaned, and escorted her to the Doctor. KJ enjoyed helping and caring for Sister Alexander. Her sensitivity and love increased over the years for her. KJ became so close to Sister Alexander until one day she said if anything ever happen to mama would you married Sister Alexander and take care of her? I just smiled and said I can appreciate older women, however I don't think sister Alexander would go for it. What a great journey we had in the 90's and now we were preparing for the new millennium and appreciating what God had done for us over the last twenty years.

St. Matthew 18: 11-14

For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost; how think ye? If a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?; And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray; Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

THE NEW MILLENNIUM

As you know millennium is tantamount to a thousand years and it's not likely that we will experience the Genesis of a new one. Nevertheless we began this new cycle with personal challenges. Violet and I continued to have struggles as we attempted to be part of a soul winning church. Little to no changes made with evangelism; however the church continued its mission in the community. Shortly thereafter discussions were held among church members and the Southern Louisiana Conference (SLC) that Pastor Ahab will become the new Pastor of our church. In addition, discussions regarding his marital status concerned some and later it was determined that he was divorced. Also during this process one of the darkest times in my life was occurring. My wife and I had come to an agreement about our separation and divorce. It is not my intent to disclose the issues of our divorce; however we both agreed that it was time to move forward. Our divorce was final in February '03 a year before KJ was to graduate from high school.

1 JOHN 1:9

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    WOW! A Testimony Worth Reading!

    This book took me on an emotional journey as I vicariously experience the feelings of this father's betrayal. Being a father, it was hard to fight back tears. I was intrigued by this father's commitment to protect his daughter from "a wolf in sheep clothing" without violating the law. To lay down his life like Christ! Being a pastor, it reminded me that our sins are more disgraceful and devestating. The author's clever use of pseudonyms guarded the names of the pastor (AHAB) and his church (LAODICEA) while vividly revealing the character of both beyond the storyline. This book reminds us that all of us are responsible for protecting the weaker vessels from predators - we are our brother's and sister's keepers. Don't just sit on the pews and in the pulpit...speak up for justice. Judgement must begin at the house of GOD (1Peter 4:17).

    Parents; Highly Recommended!

    Based on the wide spread of trusted leaders, such as Pastors and other clergies, predatory conduct have become an epidemic in our country. Therefore, this book NOT only exposes the predator that abused the author's family, It also, reveals techniques they use to manipulate young people or vulnerable SAINTS. God bless you.

    Eye Opener - Easy Read

    This book opened my eyes to the reality that deceitfulness is in all forms of religion. The enemy will use who and what he can to destroy God's people. It also confirmed my beliefs that people serve man instead of God in church. I applaude Mr. Jenkins for being honest and open about what his family went through. It was a easy read and you can see that the authour allowed his test to become a testimony to save somebody else's child. How to pay attention to the signs to we sometimes tend to ignore when we are dealing with "men and women of the cloth".

    Every Parent Must Read! The book “The Ultimate Betrayal&r


    Every Parent Must Read!
    The book “The Ultimate Betrayal” written by Kevin Roy Jenkins is an interesting book. The author tells the story about how a deceitful pastor tried to destroy a young girl’s life and her family. The author was very hurt that the pastor had violated his trust. I was impressed with the father’s determination to expose this pastor’s ungodly life style. It was amazing to see that this father would go to the end of the earth to protect his daughter.
    While reading this book I could sense the pain, hurt and disbelief that the father felt. He respected his pastor and believed that he was truly a son of God. I pray that this family can forget the past and move on with God still their personal Savior.
    I highly recommend this book for all families with sons and daughters who are actively involved in their church. This book can help other families who may have been in abusive relationships. This book was an easy read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED-MUST READ!

    I couldnt put this book down! The unconditional love shown by this father is just simply amazing, and despite her rebelliousness he stood firm to what he believed and protected her as much as he could. This really teaches you not to put so much trust in the pulpit,but to trust only God!

    I can truly understand the author, Kevin Roy Jenkins, my friend'

    I can truly understand the author, Kevin Roy Jenkins, my friend's fellings. As I read his book, all I could think of were his Parents, sisters and other friends we grew up with. Knowing the author as I do, I can't imagine how he lived through this " CRISIS" as he called it with out breaking the law. Didn't know his beautiful daughter as well as his immediate family, however my prayers goes out to her as well. Now this man, so called "Pastor" using God as a front to do his SINFUL work is beyound my imagination. This person is know different from others who may have a legitimate business, however selling drugs out of it and killing hundreds of God's people. I hope to never meet this "PREDATOR", and certainly no one like him in my life time. Finally, I was touch by the author's Faher's day tribute, where she indicated that "even though you're a man I know what kind of mother I want to be through watching you. I want to be strong like you and i'd like my husband and children to see you in me. Your relationship with God, your strength, and of course your undying love for FAMILY is special". Love and Peace...
