Mike Guglielmucci in Psychiatric Hospital, Police “No Basis for Charges”, Secret Accounts Audited but Not Released

with 7 comments

I missed this article that was published 3 days ago…

For the sake of telling the whole story, here’s what’s been reported in The Adelaide Advertiser:

SOUTH Australian police are unlikely to lay criminal charges against “porn pastor” Michael Guglielmucci over the fake cancer donation controversy.

The police say while they have taken a “very proactive approach to it”, no one had made a formal complaint.

The Advertiser understands that Mr Guglielmucci is in hospital receiving psychiatric care after confessing to faking a battle with terminal cancer to hide his 16-year obsession with pornography.

But police say the former pentecostal preacher, who performed his hit song Healer with an oxygen tube in his nose, may not face further investigations. Detective Superintendent Jim Jeffery said police were finalising their investigations.

“Unless further information comes to light or people that may have been affected by Mr Guglielmucci action’s come forward, no further police investigations are likely,” he said.

At the centre of the inquiry was a website, established by a friend of Mr Guglielmucci, asking for donations to the Praying Together for Mike Guglielmucci cancer cause.

“We have tracked that but as far as monetary amounts are concerned, we can’t comment on that,” Det-Supt Jeffery said.

Despite two people complaining to The Advertiser about feeling duped after donating money to cause, police said the majority of people who gave money were interstate.

No one has yet made any formal complaint to police interstate.

Mr Guglielmucci’s father, Danny, the founder of Edge Church at Reynella, yesterday confirmed four people had received refunds after writing to a post office box the church established.

“They were small amounts,” a spokesman said yesterday.

The church has also assisted police with auditing the accounts of Michael Guglielmucci, but despite repeated requests The Advertiser has been unable to view records for those accounts.

  1. Hi Everyone,

    Can someone answer me the following questions?

    According to MikeG confession, he has been addicted to porn since the age of 12. How did he get access to it? Who introduced MikeG to it? Family members? School friends? Church Friends?

    AOG prides itself being an Apostolic and Prophetic fellowship, How did MikeG’s Father Danny, Russell Evans, Brian Houston and AOG State and National Executive miss this? Are they really being led by the Spirit? God will not hide anything from His servants the prophets.

    Usually these men move in prophetic utterance, What did go wrong?

    What happened to the gift of discernment?

    How come Amanda or Danny didn’t go with MikeG to the doctors with MikeG? If I was this sick my wife will not leave my side. Very strange relationship. May be to busy serving the people not God.

    Bible says Train up your child in the ways of the Lord, so that he or she will not depart from it when they are old. I personally believe somehow MikeG did not receive this training at home when he was young. His parents might have been too busy ministering to others not God and they fail to discern his problem.

    When you minister to God not man God will reveal to His children any evil that is going to happen to them. Psalm 91. I am a Pastor I know what I am talking about.

    We need to keep our house in order before we reach out other people.

    Ministry is not empire building, it is kingdom (of God) building. It is ministry unto the Lord.

    God Bless

  3. Why is he getting psychiatric treatment??? Shouldn’t he be receiving Counseling and prayer/support from leaders who have the anointing to release him from bondage??

    Psychiatric treatment.. it is a worldy answer that deny’s the power of the Holy Spirit- sure talking about your problems is important.. but the true Counselor is the Holy Spirit whose power and the blood of Christ can set us free.

    Michael needs the continuing support and prayer of anointed leaders.. who can rebuke and release the demon of lust from his life..

    Brothers and Sisters in Christ.. have you ever read Mary Baxter’s Divine Revelation of the Spirirtual Realm??.. You will be able to condemn Satan and his demons of lust who was behnd it all which Michael became a prisoner to.. lets pray for that demon of lust to set the body of Christ free and for the Holy Spirit to fill us and make us whole!

  4. @ DaughterofGod:
    “Psychiatric treatment.. it is a worldy answer that deny’s the power of the Holy Spirit- sure talking about your problems is important.. but the true Counselor is the Holy Spirit whose power and the blood of Christ can set us free.”

    That’s only half true. There are many godly psychiatrists who believe in the power of the H.S.!! The H.S. uses people in order to help others and there still needs to be personal responsibility despite any ‘deliverance’ that may happen.

    As well, the term ‘counselor’ literally means ‘one who walks beside us’ another word (that I think is a little more accurate) is ‘Advocate’

    Be careful about the ‘demons of lust’ theology. Deliverance theology has a tendancy to deny personal responsibility and make a demon out of everything!

  5. Thought-provoking comment, Adam.

    Makes me wonder where Mike Guglielmucci’s responsibility vs God’s responsibility is divided…

  6. At the risk of being labelled a Pharisee by the modern chuirch – Let’s consider what the scripture says about this in James 1:14. “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.” King James Version

    I remember hearing the story of the devil crying in the corner of eternity during a huge celebration. When someone attending the party went up to the devil and asked, “Why are you crying?”. The devil replied, even if I live free for all eternoty I could never do 10% of the things Christians blame me for!

    And before anyone states the obvious I don’t believe the devil gets to heaven …. my story is purely for illustrative purposes!

  7. Loved the joke/analogy “The Doctor” – I haven’t heard that one before 🙂

    I still wonder where personal responsibility and divine interference diverge though.
