Victim Confronts Minister Who Abused Her — RECORDED

Hat tip to Dee at Wartburg Watch. That audio is very telling. I highly recommend that you either (a) read the transcript or (b) listen to the entire call, which lasts about 14 minutes. I applaud Leanne Kay. What she did here is not just brave; she has provided the whole world a first-hand look […]

UMC, With Help of African Blacks, Rejects SJW Agenda

Going into the Special Session of the 2019 General Conference of the United Methodist Church (UMC), American news outlets were ecstatic at the prospect of the UMC joining the ranks of other mainline Protestant denominations and endorsing the marriage and ordination of LGBTs. The “woke” faction of the UMC, dominated by American progressives, was confident […]

The Southern Baptist Convention Has An Existential Crisis

There is no pretty way to spin this. The Houston Chronicle is reporting a damning collection of abuses that implicate Southern Baptists at every level of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). The abuses and coverups include volunteers, deacons, youth and children’s ministers, music ministers, pastors, missionaries, even foundational leaders in the SBC. Most of us […]

IKDG: The Final Repudiation

Joshua Harris finally KIKDGG  Here is the link. Personally, I put less blame on him than I do the larger evangelical celebrity world for imposing his damnable grid on singles. Shame on them for uncritically embracing the ideas of a whipper-snapper who had no formal theological education, and then using those ideas to shame singles […]

Beth Moore Goes Full SJW

I’ve never had any use for Social Justice Warriors (SJWs), leftists who gain power via threat, intimidation, bullying, and shaming. Their modus operandi is Marxist, their playbook written by Stalin, Mao, and Alinsky. They have targeted–sometimes successfully–academics, military officers, corporate CEOs, columnists, talk show hosts, and public officials. In the Christian world, they have hijacked […]

Southern Baptists and #ChurchToo: A Homeowner Analogy

Many years ago, Jim bought a new home. It was in a good location, it looked nice, and it was a very popular house. Jim entertained many guests there. But as the years passed, Jim started to notice a problem. His basement had some cracks, and–when it rained–water was leaking into the house. The walls […]

The SBC And The Paige Patterson Disaster: My $0.02

First, a few disclaimers: (1) I don’t know Paige Patterson. Nor have I ever met the man. I have a former pastor who is a friend of his. But otherwise, I only know him by reputation. (2) I am technically a Southern Baptist, as my church is an SBC affiliate for local purposes. — For […]

Welcome To The Party, [p]Al!

Dear President Mohler: The title of this article is an adaptation of an iconic one-liner from the great Christmas classic Die Hard. And yes, Al, you’re getting started a little late. That’s uncharacteristic of you, as you are usually quick off the blocks on so many other fronts of the Culture Wars. But, as that […]

Rachael Denhollander for SBC President

Paige Patterson’s remarks at a 2000 CBMW conference–about which I was unaware until almost 2 weeks ago, but which have resurfaced due to the work of some watchbloggers–have ignited quite the conflagration in the Southern Baptist Convention. This is because it isn’t simply about what Patterson said in a sermon in 2000. This is because: […]

Abuse and Divorce: It’s Not An Exact Science

In the Twitter wars–in which I have been quite active–the Deebs, Amy Smith, and some other fairly knowledgeable folks–are pounding on the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), Paige Patterson, John Piper, Matt Chandler, and other complementarian (comp) leaders over their position on divorce, particularly whether it appropriate to recommend, particularly whether the Scriptures permit it, and […]
