As we start 2018 a scene from the classic movie The Matrix is how the year will be kicked off. If you are attending Acts 29 Redeemer Arlington and looking for truth you will find it here. You have two options before you…the blue pill that will allow you to return to your Pollyanna view at Redeemer Arlington. Or the red pill which will reveal to you how deep the rabbit hole goes and the corruption and issues which exist at Redeemer. What will you choose?
“In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
“Truth is incontrovertible. Panic may resent it, ignorance may deride it, malice may distort it, but there it is.”
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 NIV
Do you want to take the Blue pill or the Red pill.
Its a pleasure to meet you…
I am Morpheus, by coming here I imagine you feel a little like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole. After all I can see it in your eyes, you are a man (or woman) who accepts what he sees because he is about to wake up. Ironically this is not far from the truth. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. You found me by Google. What you know you can’t explain. But you feel it. You’ve felt it while being in the system. There is something wrong with the world. You do not know what it is, but it’s there. Like a splinter in your mind. Driving you mad. It is the feeling that has brought you to me.
I am talking about Redeemer Arlington.
The truth is that you are a slave. Like everyone else at Redeemer you are in a system of bondage. You are in a prison you cannot smell, taste or touch. No one can tell you the problems, you have to see it for yourself.
(There is a box that Morpheus pulls out and when he opens it there are two pills – one blue, and one red.)
This is your last chance. After this there is no turning back.
You take the blue pill and the story ends and you go back to Redeemer Arlington. In the process you believe that you are in a healthy church and believe what you want to believe. You will trust the system. 9 Marks is healthy, so is Acts 29. And for you evangelical Christianity will be robust, healthy and vibrant. This will be the last time you check this website.
You take the red pill and you stay in Wonderland and see how sick and diseased Redeemer Arlington can be. You will learn about membership covenant issues at the church, Neo-Calvinist problems, spiritual abuse issues and more. You will learn how someone outside the community was deeply hurt by a person in authority at Redeemer Arlington. You will also learn how spiritual abuse dragged on and popped up in a hospital room during a long illness. You will learn that Redeemer Arlington doesn’t even believe that a loved one can die in peace. In the name of authority even that must be stolen. After all Jesus was committed to truth, will you face the truth about Redeemer?
All I am offering you is the truth and nothing more.
Are you ready for 2018? Brace yourself, you are going to learn how deep and dark the rabbit hole ultimately goes.
