Reflecting on Michelle Van Loon’s Thoughts About Friendship and the Evangelical Church

Michelle Van Loon wrote an article the other day that looked at issues with friendship inside evangelicalism. Its about how she realized some people are not friends after all. This is a reflection on her article as I consider my past challenges of friendship inside evangelicalism. While I have two positive examples I was also deeply burned as well.

An Open Letter to Jason Dees (Senior Pastor at Christ Covenant Church Regarding Jordan Kauflin and Spiritual Abuse From Redeemer Arlington)

Thus is an open letter to Jason Dees of Christ Covenant. This open letter explains why Jordan Kauflin should not be hired by Christ Covenant. This is the story of how I learned why rape and sexual assault is an issue in the military. It was triggered through a false accusation by someone Jordan Kauflin discipled at Redeemer Church of Arlington. The unresolved abuse later popped up in my Mom’s terminal illness. Jordan Kauflin should not be leading worship or in a position of authority. He is not above reproach and this abuse situation has hung over Redeemer Arlington for the last few years. .  Continue reading

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

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?
