Its my hope that this discussion with start to happen more often.  Continue reading

Why John Piper Would be a Miserable Comforter for New York City Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic

As New York City deals with the COVID-19 pandemic John Piper has a message for the Big Apple. Again, as always Piper reveals as to how he is a miserable comforter. This time its New York City that gets the “good news.” The message is God is sovereign and yes, he strikes people down in sin. Or in other words God is a tyrant and people are nothing but puppets on a string to appease a narcissistic bully. Don’t you just find that comforting?  Continue reading

Considering Ravi Zacharias and his Passing. Do Evangelical Leaders Think of Death and Funerals? Or are the Pewsitters the Only Ones Guilted Regularly About Death?

Ravi Zacharias has died and with his death evangelicals are singing his praises. Evangelical scandal has changed and now follows people to the grave where their dishonesty remains. Dishonest in life means being dishonest in death. When Jesus says, “Well done good and faith servant” what do you do when evangelicals embrace a man who was dishonest about his education and engaged in sexting during an emotional affair with a married woman? Evangelicals ignore scandal and this blog dealt with this issue when David Powlison of Christian Counseling and Education Foundation died. But can you imagine when the funerals are held for Mark Driscoll, C.J. Mahaney, and James MacDonald one day how much lying will take place? Continue reading

David Deeter an Elder From Christ Covenant Helps Illustrate Why Evangelical Christianity is Abusive and Corrupt

At Christ Covenant Elder David Deeter explains how God is at work in this Neo-Calvinist church. This post looks at what the elder said and compared it with the hiring of Jordan Kauflin. The question that needs to be asked is did Jordan Kauflin share this abuse situation from Redeemer Arlington with the staff of Christ Covenant when he was being hired? This could reveal quite a bit about his character.  Continue reading

Kirk Cameron’s Wife is Grateful that James MacDonald is Back in Ministry

This evening someone shared with me a screenshot of Kirk Cameron’s wife thrilled that James MacDonald is back in ministry. The Kirk Cameron family is kind of like that bad stick of gum that keeps turning up for all the wrong reasons. I guess Chelsea Noble is okay with a pastor who allegedly wants to plant child pornography being back in ministry. Continue reading

USA Today Reports on a Dark Story That Highlights the Issue of Sexual Abuse at a Southern Baptist Church Outside Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

A very dark story that details why sexual abuse is a problem inside the Southern Baptist Convention emerges outside Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

In Rebuking Jesus Its Clear the National Prayer Breakfast Needs to Come to an End

The National Prayer Breakfast was held in Washington, D.C. on February 6, 2020. Arthur Brooks gave a strong talk pleading for contempt and polarization to end. President Trump meanwhile followed Brooks talk and used it to settle scores and attack his perceived “enemies.” While pastors and staff laughed it became quite clear that the National Prayer Breakfast was never about prayer or bringing people to recognize the Lord. Instead, it is about the naked pursuit of power and trying to influence the executive and legislative branch. This blog is calling for the National Prayer Breakfast to be canceled and for Christians to do a lot of hard thinking about what they perpetuated and enabled. They don’t have the moral authority to lecture me about faith when they silently laugh and allow God to be mocked.  Continue reading

Does Greg Strand Realize the Lost Art of Admitting Error? Or Will Tribalism Rule the Day in the EFCA?

This is a post that looks at tribalism and how it is a danger in our society. Tribalism exists in religion, government and culture today. The EFCA by encouraging D.A. Carson to apologizing for attacking a rape victim from Sovereign Grace can take the moral high ground in encouraging Carson to retract his statement and the EFCA can issue a statement saying they take abuse seriously and in the aftermath of their pre-conference they are grateful that D.A. Carson is doing the right thing. So this blog would like to ask, will Greg Strand have his John McCain or Mitt Romney moment and will the EFCA rise to the occasion and do the right thing? Continue reading

Does Greg Strand and the EFCA Understand Spiritual Abuse? This Blog Would Say No Especially with D.A. Carson Who Once Tore into a Rape Victim to Defend C.J. Mahaney Speaking at the Theology Conference

The EFCA’s pre-conference appears to take a strong stand on abuse issues. And yet in the EFCA Theology Conference D.A. Carson is teaching. Carson once lashed out at a rape victim from Sovereign Grace to defend C.H. Mahaney. This blog would like to ask if Greg Strand takes abuse seriously? Is it possible for the EFCA to follow what Jesus said about admitting mistakes and stop worshiping him and make things right? That is the question today’s post deals with. Continue reading
