Ex-Wife of Dr. Shine, Dee Dee Freeman Moving on with Ministry
Claudette Freeman also known as Dee Dee Freeman who stood by her ex-husband, Robert Freeman who was well known as Dr. Shine on national television for many years (and even after their divorce in 2009) has moved forward with her own ministry, Eyes of Faith Ministries. Allegedly, the couple illegally avoided high debt and when they were divorced Pastor Dee Dee Freeman allegedly agreed to take care of the responsibility of all of it, according to an anonymous source. They received millions of dollars from their television ministry, which was viewed for approximately 10 years called “God’s Top Gun Ministry”, but also known as “Save the Seed Ministry”, “Save the Seed International Church” and “Seed Faith International Church”. When Dr. Shine filed bankruptcy to avoid creditors, he and a church volunteer who enlisted himself as the church treasurer, Jefferey Mont did not include all of Freeman’s millions of dollars in assets, which was in many various names of his church members, none who resided at he and Dee Dee’s 1.75 million dollar home in Potomac, Maryland, an exclusive mansion on a waterfront.
It maybe a new beginning for Pastor Dee Dee Freeman, but we wonder if all of the church members who were asked to reserve several high priced luxury cars in their names have been able to move on or even if she is concerned about them? Robert J. Freeman allegedly initiated two Lincoln Town cars to be purchased in the names of two church members for more than $55,000. In 2003, he also allegedly initiated a Mercedes Benz car to be purchased in the name of a third church member for almost $40,000. In July 2004, he also allegedly initiated a $1.75 million residence on the Potomac River to be purchased in the name of a fourth church member. In August and Oct. 2004, he also allegedly initiated two Volkswagen Phaetons to be purchased in the name of two of the church members for more than $140,000. In June 2005, he also allegedly initiated a Bentley Arnage vehicle and a Maybach vehicle to be purchased and leased, respectively, in the name of a church member for more than $340,000. In February 2006, he also allegedly initiated another Mercedes Benz car to be purchased in the name of a church member for more than $68,000. The indictment alleges that by Oct. 2005, he and his then-spouse, Pastor Dee Dee Freemon owed debts totaling more than $1.3 million, including $846,000 in back rent; more than $87,000 in lease payments on a jet airplane; more than $160,000 for payments on musical instruments; and $220,000 in loan payments on a bus. On Oct. 14, 2005 Freeman filed a bankruptcy petition seeking to adjust or discharge his debts. Freeman was required to disclose to the bankruptcy court all real or personal property, including property held by another that Freeman controlled.
In the weeks following the discharge of his debts, Freeman continued to purchase luxury cars: three Mercedes Benz vehicles and a Lincoln Navigator to be purchased or leased for more than $430,000 in the name of a church member.
Allegedly, even the Maryland residence, located at 5200 Rivers Edge Place in Indian Head, included about 9,000 square feet, with a deep water pier, a 20,000 pound covered boat lift, a jet-ski lift, two, four-car garages, five fireplaces and a gym with steam room. One anonymous church member decided not to proceed with the purchase so “Dr. Shine” allegedly initiated a fifth church member to consummate the sale in Dec. 2004. Freeman and others lived in the residence, excluding the church member who reserved his or her name on the property.
Since, this situation has passed of misusing church members and not allowing them to enjoy all of the wealth since their names were used during the purchase of all of those expensive vehicles and mansion on the pier, how can Pastor Dee Dee Freeman start all over again as though no one was spiritually offended by such illegal transactions that occurred? Also, according to the Word of God, she was one yoke with Dr. Shine and it seems as though when all of the evil deeds were discovered by the law, their marriage split. However, in the eyes of God, He says we cannot divorce, except for infidelity. ‘But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery’ (Matthew 5:32) . Therefore, not only the Shines aka Freemans have been in error of divorce, but there are many other married couples in the ministry and born again believers within the body of Christ who have been breaking God’s commandments for many years and God is not happy with it. We believe Pastor Claudette “Dee Dee” Freeman should have at least remained married to him, especially if she was not going to share in the punishment of her ex-husband of possibly serving 55 years in prison. Here is another scripture that explains our perplexity, regarding the Freeman’s divorce while Pastor “Dee Dee” Freeman moves on into eventually earning millions of dollars from the “Eyes of Faith” Ministries: ‘But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so. A believing man or woman is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. How do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?’ (1 Corinthians 7:15-16)
We learned that Robert J. Freeman aka Dr. Shine was facing about of about 55 years in prison with thousands of dollars in fines along with Jeffrey “J. J.” Mont who is facing about 20 years with fines for falsifying records and obstruction of official proceedings. Of course, we understand if you commit a crime, then you must do the time. However, should those two be the only ones doing time? Shouldn’t Pastor Claudette “Dee Dee” Freeman be sharing in the punishment or-should she just enjoy more wealth through tithes and offerings from people who will be sending in their seeds for prosperity, success and many unanswered prayers to her while watching her on the Word network?
It is also annoying to see churches opening and closing like corporate businesses as though God has no say in all their decisions. Churches are not supermarkets and if they are going to be on every corner, they should be conducted like the House of God, not like million dollar corporations making sells to customers, so they can enjoy an extravagant lifestyles in the names of those who financially support the ministry.
People make mistakes and we of AT2W understand that fact, but when will we see more couples in the family of God remaining married while one may endure punishment for their wrongdoings? When will we see a return of a revival among God’s people for righteousness to prevail in the souls of christian men and women, as well as their pastors, bishops and even evangelists?
When we visited Pastor Claudette ‘Dee Dee’ Freeman’s website, we noticed that it is a cheap website, one of the templates from Yola, a drag and drop solution for those who are not familiar with web design or even cannot afford an expensive one.
