“Why is Sex Such a Huge Deal For You Guys?”

The other day I listened to a podcast and the question came up to an evangelical from a mainstream Protestant and former Catholic. The question is why is sex such a huge deal for you guys? The question drew me back to my false accusation mess. I observed how a member of Jordan Kauflin or Eric Simmons Redeemer Arlington was so focused on avoiding sexual sin, but other situations such as the false accusation I endured were not sinful. The hyper focus on sexual sin makes evangelicalism toxic as people end up downplaying other sin. I hope this post makes sense as I have been working on it for a day now.  Continue reading

Clint Clifton on the Church Planting Podcast Asks Jordan Kauflin What to Look For in a Worship Leader? Here’s a Hint How About One Who Does Not Enable or Tolerate Abuse?

On the Church Planting Podcast Clint Clifton had Jordan Kauflin on to discuss what should be looked for in a worship leader. The podcast had issues as it also showed how corrupt Jordan Kauflin had become in touting Sovereign Grace Ministries music. And this is on top of my spiritual abuse mess that will never be resolved. 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

A Look at Ravi Zacharias and the EFCA’s Trinity. It Appears the Carl F H Henry Center is Taking Down Zacharias Material. Meanwhile Trinity’s Rolfing Memorial Library Still Has Zacharias Material in Open Circulation

This is a post that looks at the ties that Ravi Zacharias had with the EFCA’s Trinity International University which trains the EFCA and many of its pastors. Will Trinity admit it was wrong to promote Zacharias over the years or will they stay silent? This question is of additional importance as it appears that the Carl F H Henry Center has begun to take down their Ravi Zacharias material. Meanwhile the Rolfing Memorial Library still has Ravi Zacharias material in circulation and has not acted on removing the material of a man who was found by Miller & Martin to have engaged in rape and sexual abuse. Will Trinity take the right steps? If the D.A. Carson approach to the Sovereign Grace Ministry scandal with C.J. Mahaney is any indicator, the answer is no, Trinity will not do the right thing and will continue to ignore the basic teachings of Jesus.  Continue reading

How Brent Detwiler Never Learned From the Sovereign Grace Ministry Scandal

The other day I saw how another individual who claimed to be against evangelical abuse support Donald Trump. Brent Detwiler thinking shows why evangelicalism is flawed, broken and can not be redeemed. Its part of a pattern of evangelical scandals that continues to happen. This blog would like to pose a question. If C.J. Mahaney could nominate a Supreme Court justice how would Brent Detwiler react?  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

Why Jason Dees and 9 Marks’ Christ Covenant Church Will Not be Able to Reach the Lost of Atlanta

Jason Dees the senior pastor of Christ Covenant Church in Atlanta, Georgia became authorterian on Twitter and quickly blocked me. When informing him about abuse he turns around and makes the abused person the issue. By deflection and downplaying he is paying his dues inside 9 Marks. To quote John Piper Jason is an example of a wasted life. As a result of the bubble he lives in he will not be able to reach the lost of Atlanta. Continue reading

Why Wade Mullen Found Peace and Why I Never Will

At Restore Chicago Wade Mullen gave a good talk about spiritual abuse. Wade even shared an abuse situation he walked away from and how a church responded to him and admitted he was correct. In the process they invited him back and spoke to the issue and reversed the abuse that happened. Wade’s case is an exception to the rule and is not the norm. I listened to Wade’s talk again this weekend and draw some comparisons with my own spiritual abuse mess from someone who was in a leadership role of a former Sovereign Grace Ministry church called Redeemer Arlington in the Washington, D.C. area. While Wade found peace, I will not nor will many other people who saw spiritual abuse. Continue reading

The Sovereign Grace Child Sex Abuse Scandal and Bob Kauflin. Considering Legacy and Death and How Will He Be Remembered?

This blog would like to raise a question, what will Bob Kauflin’s legacy be? When he is in hospice one day and the Kauflin children are working on his obituary how will be be remembered in light of the Sovereign Grace Ministry scandal?  Continue reading
