Henry Williams and Five Oaks Church in Woodbury, Minnesota and Healing Our Polarization and the Challenges for White Evangelicals

Dave Dummitt and Shawn Williams Do Not Understand Christianity. In Embracing Bill Hybels and Overlooking Abuse Its Clear That Willowcreek is Broken and Lost

On May 26 , 2021 a meeting took place at Willowcreek. A question about Bill Hybels brought a response by Shawn Williams that is disturbing. Dave Dummitt fist bumped and said “Wow” to Shawn’s teaching. And with that Willowcreek held up an abuser and also showed that neither Dave Dummitt or Shawn Williams understand Christianity. Willowcreek is broken and can not be repaired at all. Willowcreek is more lost than any atheist, gays in a gay bar or people drinking away in a bar in the northside of Chicago. Anyone who calls Willowcreek home at this point is profoundly lost. Continue reading

Bryan Loritts is Not Exonerated. Here are the Problems with the Guidepost Solutions Report

Guidepost Solutions released their report about Bryan Loritts and the Fellowship Memphis scandal. The Summit and others are claiming that the report clears Bryan Loritts. It does not exonerate Loritts and in the process shows the deep level of issues that still exist with the Southern Baptists. The report is more of a whitewash and there are other issues like the ethical conflict of interest that exists in the report, or the fake doctorate that was not a part of the report as it was not the issue, but it shows Loritts devalued character. One issue of concern that this blog has is how Rachael Denhollender allowed herself to be used and thus rubber stamp a flawed report. Regardless this blog will still be writing about the issues of Bryan Loritts long term. Continue reading

Learning to Hate Yourself. A Reflection on the Forever War Against Lust and Pornography Among Men in Evangelical Culture and the Destroyed Lives Left Behind

The New York Times has been writing about the profile of the Atlanta shooter and his “sexual addiction” battles against pornography and lust. Anyone who spent time in evangelicalism will identify with his purity battles that he dealt with.  In the “forever war” against pornography the battle with lust is long, exhausting and soul crushing.  Males inside evangelicalism realize that they often can’t win. And they are also caught in the dilemma of wanting to date but fearing of becoming sexually active while they do. Accountability is often a means of control and a weapon used by people in ministry. The culture against porn often uses fear and warns that if you look at pornography you too will become just like Ted Bundy and a serial killer hunting women down out of compulsion. Its known as the “forever war” and in evangelicalism it leads to PTSD, anxiety and other issues. Continue reading
