*Final Update* “If those identified as the foremost Christian authorities won’t hold the child sex abusers accountable, then those who hate Christians will do it. Again, I think of the term from the Book of Samuel that talks about the “rod of man.” If the Church won’t do what it should, get ready for secular society to shame the Church as they do it. While it’s sad, I’m grateful to see someone stand up for and defend victims.” ~ Cindy Milot
Read the account of this “Christian” conference and their fawning over C.J. Mahaney at the Daily Beast. Cindy is 100 percent correct. Clean house, churches, or the world will do it for you.
*UPDATE* Todd Pruitt of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals has written an excellent article on this issue, calling on the organizers of this conference to remove Mahaney from the speakers line-up. Thank you, Mr. Pruitt, for voicing the concerns of so many. Mahaney should never have been invited to participate in the first place. Here is Todd’s piece.
Please note that the Together for the Gospel (as they call it) conference is being picketed over the stubborn inclusion of C.J. Mahaney and his odious denomination, the misnamed Sovereign Grace Ministries. The sex abuse cover-up is a festering sore that has yet to be cleaned out. Their allowing Mahaney’s participation is a slap in the face of the sex abuse victims, and the Big Names of Note add their participation without the slightest qualms, apparently. The lives ruined by the sex abuse – abuse that took place on Mahaney’s sorry watch – matter. God’s statute of limitations does not expire, FYI.
It’s appropriate that “Protest” (as in Protest-ant) is the theme of this conference. Time for real protests. Here is their website promoting their latest (and perpetual) tiresome conferencing. Here you see the promotional mugshot of none other than C.J. Mahaney, ready to speak with all the good ole boys. Shame, shame on all of you.
Picket info here and contact info for those responsible for this shameful debacle. Like you Big Guys need yet another conference for mutual back scratching and selfie taking. Repent and do right by the victims, and stop using God’s name in vain.
