This Blog Is Going to Continue Writing About the Bryan Loritts Scandal and Fellowship Memphis. And it Will Remain a Tenacious Bulldog

This blog is going to continue to write about Bryan Loritts and the Fellowship Memphis scandal. For the Loritts family faith is a business and Bryan is also a conman. When it comes to Bryan Loritts this blog wants you to think of Jim Bakker of PTL. This blog will continue to write about the issues with the Loritts family, even with the rubber stamp from J.D. Greear that attempted to white wash Loritts behavior at Fellowship Memphis.  Continue reading

J.D. Greear’s Southern Baptist Sewagepool. Driving out the Beth Moore’s and Embracing the Bryan Loritts

J.D. Greear has become known for his corruption and mismanagement of the Southern Baptist Convention. In the process he has defended and gone to bat for Bryan Loritts who is known for his alleged cover-up of voyeurism and child pornography at Fellowship Memphis. Meanwhile his convention is driving away people like Beth Moore at the same time. He attracts the corrupt and drives away the faithful. Its the sewage pond of the Southern Baptists and every day Greear puts on his suit, climbs into the pond of shit and works to make it worse. And then he expects to hear, “Well done my good and faithful servant.” To those in the Convention it is time to leave. 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

This troubled podcast also revealed another development. That is how much of a brownnoser Clint Clifton of the New City Network has become.  Continue reading

When Your Faith is a Lie, and You Were Conned. Another Component of Moore’s Leaving the Southern Baptists

There is a part of Beth Moore’s story that hit home with me. It deals with how Moore felt like her head was spinning when many Southern Baptists who criticized Bill Clinton then  both defended and embraced Donald Trump as his affairs and abuse came forward. For me the painful aspect of being thrust in such a crisis is when you realize that faith is a lie. And that is because of what occurs when those who taught you what faith is throw it all away to support someone of questionable character. Continue reading

Beth Moore Leaves the Southern Baptist Convention. What Does This Mean? The Convention is Dying…

In an interview with the Religion News Service Beth Moore explains that she is leaving the Southern Baptist Convention. Issues such as sexual abuse and how women are treated are part of it. But the rise of Christian nationalism and the embrace of Donald Trump in 2016 stunned her. The tipping point is seeing the same Baptists who went after Bill Clinton for his sexual affairs defending or explaining away Donald Trumps’ sexual abuse. This article is an overview of a number of issues that Beth Moore had with the Southern Baptist Convention. What does her departure mean? Well the Convention is dying. The death of the SBC will be good as the organization is not healthy, and instead corrupt and filled with rot. From its founding in 1845 until 2021 the organization has not moved very far over 170 years. Continue reading

Here is Why the Recent Petition to Condemn Christian Nationalism is Going to Fail. And What Needs to Take Place for Conservative Evangelicals to Reject Christian Nationalism

In late February progressives rolled out a petition to condemn Christian nationalism. Its flawed and it won’t work for many reasons. Secular Dispatches explained why in a column the other day. Plus I also share some my experiences in evangelicalism to explain why this is doomed to fail. Conservative evangelicals operate in a tribal mentality and don’t consider those who are theologically liberal to be Christians. But it breaks down even further as there are Baptists who won’t charismatics to be Christians. The only way to get conservative evangelicals to reject Christian nationalism is when they realize it not in their interest.  Continue reading

When Christianity Advances Hate and Becomes a Dark Tool of Nationalism

An article in USA Today explores the issue of how some Christians hijack symbols of faith and use them to advance dark movements like Christian nationalism or white nationalism. The issue is more of a problem than many people want to admit in American evangelicalism. Individuals like Eric Metaxas reveal how deep the rot is inside evangelicalism, especially as they have tied their identity to Christian nationalism. Continue reading

A stunning article appears in NPR and reveals how Q Anon is affecting a Southern Baptist congregation outside Washington, D.C. A youth pastor quits and leaves when his ministry is struggling with teaching faith as elders and church leaders allegedly instruct their children that Democrats practice pedophilia and other conspiracy theories. This post is about Spotswood Baptist Church in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Continue reading
