Mark Galli at Christianity Today on Church Discipline; My Question When is C.J. Mahaney, Mark Driscoll or Steve Estes Facing Church Discipline?

Mark Galli of Christianity Today writes an article on the grace of church discipline. In it he singles out Mark Dever and 9 Marks. This post asks Mark as to what rock he has been living under and reviews issues with church discipline. From it being mishandled in Matt Chandler’s church to it not being applied to C.J. Mahaney, Mark Driscoll or Steve Estes. Continue reading

Wanted: Stories about Acts 29 Corruption, Inappropriate Church Discipline, Membership Covenant Issues, Church Implosions and Polity Problems in the Denomination

A brief overview of the Acts 29 network and a request for information. This blog is going to cover and write about Acts 29 both in the Washington, D.C. area, The Village Church, and elsewhere. This post is requesting information on Acts 29 corruption, polity issues, problems at The Village Church, questionable church discipline, along with Acts 29 implosions. Its my contention that the Acts 29 network is struggling with the DNA from Mark Driscoll. This I would suggest has proven itself in what Matt Chandler’s church did with Karen Hinkley and the murky removal of Darrin Patrick from The Journey in St. Louis. If you have an Acts 29 story please contact me.  Continue reading

95 Reasons Why we Need a New Reformation

After some of the feedback I have received I decided to take the 95 reasons alone and make them a stand alone post. Feel free to print and turn this in with your resignation from a Neo-Calvinist church. Or in the spirit of Martin Luther you can nail or tape  these to the door of your local church. For those that do so please take a picture and email me about the experience. I was out traveling this past weekend so this will fill until the next post. Also for those inquiring…it’s not an accident that Jonathan Leeman is listed four times. The corruption in 9 Marks justifies a new Reformation alone. Continue reading
