Says her website: PASTOR MELISSA SCOTT is the Pastor and Teacher of the University Cathedral in Downtown Los Angeles.

Employing a research-laden approach to the analysis of God’s Word in the Old and New Testaments, Pastor Melissa Scott unfolds and presents her teaching in context with history and the sciences.

OK, so what. Mrs. Scott is a Christian, saved by the grace of God. She is forgiven in the eyes of God. If she forsook the world, and took on the task of sharing the good news of the love and forgiveness of God. Rejoice! Melissa Scott successfully made the transition. God forgave her. How about you?

ok i'm 49. at first i thought i was jealous and i was . I turn my tv scanning channels and i found her.
she confused me and i thought she was so full of herself and it seemed to be about her and her god . Then the more i watched and listened. Plus i called her show awhile back with a comment thinking it would bring her back down to earth. I ask the angel close to god to forgive me for my thinking and judgement. i don't want to be judged and now i'm sick so maybe thats why i'm so bitter and harsh to judge. I like this women of god . and respect and learn from her. She inspires alot of women and all kinds ,walks of people . God forgives. I did not know nothing about her until just now going online and looking up her name and was shocked in disbelief. But ya know what like i said she inspires my life and i'm learning the words of god from her as long as she is not selfish and its not just her and its about me and god we are all of the flesh and we all bleed and all sin. No one is better than our almighty lord god. Amen to sister
