In Order to Understand Evangelical Culture One Should Cease Reading their Bible and Read George Orwell Instead

Preserving Matt Chandler’s The Village Church’s Bylaws and Membership Covenants from 2009 and 2014 Respectively

This is a brief post that documents and preserves The Village Church’s bylaws and membership covenants from 2009 and 2014. Plus the 2014 membership covenant is likely the  membership covenant used by Karen Hinkley before The Village Church tried to practice church discipline on her.

Bryan Loritts was a teaching pastor at Fellowship Memphis, in which a dark scandal took place in which I believe child pornography was allegedly manufactured. Does Matt Chandler get that child pornography is illegal and a crime? Especially in light of the Jordan Root scandal which took place at The Village Church in 2015? Why would one church that dealt with this issue promote material from a pastor that was allegedly involved in the cover up at another church?  Continue reading
