As the Delta Varient Soars In the Covid-19 Pandemic the EFCA’s Greg Strand Stays Silent on the National Blog and Will Not Explain the Theological Reasoning for Vaccination

As the COVID-19 pandemic changes with the Delta Variant, this blog is noticing the continued silence out of the EFCA in Minneapolis on this vary topic. The EFCA should be front and center and Greg Strand should have written a post or two at the national blog explaining the theological reasons why Christians should get vaccinated. Instead that is not happening and instead the COVID-19 death toll which is not far from surpassing the death toll of the Spanish Flu from 1918 until 1920 continues to grow. This silence in a medical crisis begs the question, does the EFCA love Jesus? Does the EFCA love thy neighbor? Continue reading

A Note to the EFCA in Minneapolis: Instead of Researching Me Online You Can Always Reach Out For Discussions. I Promise I Don’t Bite

Recently the EFCA in Minneapolis did some research of me online. How did I learn about this? Simple, it came from my old LinkedIn profile. This post is designed to give the EFCA some information about my blog and if they want to talk or discuss with me what I am writing I am willing to do so. I am very approachable and promise I don’t bite. Continue reading

The Moral Failure of The EFCA’s Greg Strand and Kevin Kompelien to be a Role Model in Covid Vaccination and Help Mitigate a National Pandemic

As the nation works on vaccination trying to reach herd immunity medical officials are hitting evangelical resistance in the red, rural areas of the United States. This blog has observed that the EFCA under the leadership of Kevin Kompelien and Greg Strand have been allegedly silent on vaccination. They have not encouraged it or even been role models in vaccination. It amounts to a disappointment and ultimately a moral failure of the EFCA to love their neighbor by not encouraging COVID-9 vaccination. If we don’t reach herd immunity can organizations or denominations like the EFCA be part of the reason why? Jesus said to love your neighbor as yourself, the question must be asked does the EFCA love their neighbor? The EFCA could have sway in rural areas and instead it chooses to be indifferent. After all in addition to Dolly Parton releasing images of herself getting vaccinated what if Greg Strand did that in a blog post or Kevin Kompelien did that in a video? Continue reading

Its Time for Greg Strand to Address Christian Nationalism Inside the Evangelical Free Church of America

The EFCA needs to address the problem of Christian nationalism from a theological perspective. The dead and injured in my backyard of Washington, D.C. are owed that by evangelicalism. This blog believes that Christian nationalism is a challenge for the EFCA, after all I wrote about it before the election using an EFCA church as an example. Greg Strand needs to develop a program that will tackle this problem and educate people on this topic and defuse the tension. Christian nationalism is linked to other issues such as racial reconciliation and justice which the EFCA cares about.  Continue reading
