James MacDonald is Taking a Sabbatical. Translation – He is Getting Ready to Engage in Long Term Spiritual Abuse in Naples, Florida, and John Secrest will be his First Target

Harvest Bible Chapel announced that James MacDonald is taking a sabbatical and will work to reconcile with people. This blog has its doubts given MacDonald’s behavior. After all James MacDonald had 20 years to do the right thing, and he refused. After all who desires to resolve problems by firing off a lawsuit against a journalist and The Elephant’s Debt? Any kind of sincere repentance has to include people like RT Maldaner, Dan Haskell, and others who were hurt in the Paxton Singer situation. This blog believes that John Secrest from Harvest Naples is in James MacDonald’s sight and that he is going to be abused by the Harvest machine.

Then I saw The Bridge Fresno (my former EFCA Church) bungle a prayer request as my Mom was dying in the nearby hospital. This post looks at issues with evangelical Christians and prayer.  Continue reading

An Open Letter to Jason Webb (Former Senior Pastor of Elmbrook Church)

An open letter to Jason Webb the former Senior Pastor of Elmbrook Church in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. In this open letter I recall a faith crisis I had and how I hit bottom in my life. I also explain how I approached 140 people for forgiveness. I hope this can give Jason a road map to move forward. If he seeks out forgiveness and works things out with many people then then I propose that Elmbrook Church can become the only church in the United States that models grace, forgiveness and repentance.  Continue reading
