Milwaukee Cru’s Steve Papez, Scott Papez, Stormy Daniels and the Sanctity of Marriage

Before the Lord a Biblical marriage consists of a man and a woman and a porn star. This is a reflection on what Steve Papez of Milwaukee Metro Cru believes is Biblical when he threw his theology system under the bus to worship Donald Trump. Recently for his 35th anniversary his son Scott celebrated his father’s sanctity of his Christ-centered marriage. So the real question is since a porn star is a part of the Christ centered marriage maybe Scott and Taylor Papez can open up their marital bed to Stormy Daniels. 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

Another Take on The Equality Act. Recalling How Some Christians Predicted the Demise of the Family and Church if Women’s Suffrage Passed

Many evangelicals are warning about The Equality Act. They claim its a threat to the church and religious freedom. Evangelicals and Christians have longed beat the drum in culture wars in American history. In the late 19th and early 20th century the contentious debate took place over women’s suffrage. This post revisits that time in history and recalls how a number of Christians predicted the demise of the family and church if women voted. In contentious debates I believe the best teacher is history and this post aims to offer another perspective based upon history. Continue reading

Pornography is Not the Problem. The Real Issue is James Dobson

Ted Bundy was one of the most infamous serial killers in United States history. Even today people do not know how many people he has killed. On the eve of his execution by the State of Florida in 1989, James Dobson interviewed him about pornogragjhy. Dobson rode the porn issue for decades and talked about its danger, as well as links to violence. And then in 2016 Dobson flip flopped on explicit material and down played Trump appearing in pornographic movies and magazines. The hypocrisy of James Dobson is sickening. And in the end the following needs to be said. Pornography is not the problem. The real issue is James Dobson. 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

Ricky Jenkins is at Southwest Church at Indian Wells, California and the EFCA is Now Ensnared in the Acts 29 Fellowship Memphis Voyeurism and Child Pornography Scandal

Ricky Jenkins who was on staff of Fellowship Memphis is one of the first pastors to learn about Rick Trotter’s voyeurism. He also did not report the deviant sex crime to the Memphis Police. Today he is a lead pastor at the EFCA’s Southwest Church in Indian Wells, California. The EFCA is now ensnared in in the Acts 29 Fellowship Memphis scandal. This blog believes that if a child is sexually abused in Indian Wells this church will try and cover it up internally instead of contacting the police. Why? Fellowship Memphis covered up a deviant sex crime and Ricky Jenkins mentor Bryan Loritts did it well.  Continue reading
