A concerned reader forwarded a link to me regarding a posting written by Chris Rosebrough. Rosebrough was mocking the seeker friendly churches use of “postcards” and came up with his own disgusting version to send out to folks who have left “seeker-friendly” churches due to the messages they were hearing. Take a look at the following link;
The picture Rosebrough used was inappropriate IMHO….it’s shocking in the way he exploits a man being physically starved to make his point but what really bothers me is the lack of reaction from the ODMS (Online Discernment Ministries). Had Mark Driscoll or Rick Warren posted a postcard like this the ODMS would be screaming bloody murder…..
Where is the condemnation from Ingrid Schlueter and Ken Silva? O, I forgot…..Rosebrough is one of the “discerning remnant” which means he’s held to a different standard then everyone else…something I’ve been seeing quite a bit in ODM land…..
In Rosebrough’s latest post he doesn’t even attempt to apologize but admits he didn’t go far enough! You can view this at the following link;
IMHO Rosebrough went too far with his attempt at satire. Its one thing to take a biblical stance against the seeker friendly movement but quite another to exploit a man being physically starved to prove some point. Can this really be considered “discernment”? I’ve said all this to say the following…..
The ODMS are out of control. I’ve received DOZENS of complaints during the last several months regarding these self appointed “watchmen” including two very well known pastors. People are sick and tired of these so-called “discernment ministries” and I can’t say I blame them. The complaints include;
- Shoddy research
- Zero accountability
- Falsifying credentials
- Scripture Twisting and random quotes taken completely out of context
- Personal obsessions with certain well know pastors they disagree with
- Ex-communication of those who publicly disagree with methods or who are publicly critical
- Spiritual terrorism
There are four of these “ministries” that seem to employ most if not all of the above techniques. I’m not going to name them yet but you probably have a pretty good idea who I’m talking about. These four “ministries” also have minions with little blogs of their own who help the “bigger” ones do their dirty work and I know who they are also….and you will meet them all in due time trust me.
This is going to be a real battle Brethren that’s not going to be easy….these people fight dirty and I’m ready for their little games. This blog has always stood for the truth and that’s my only motivation here. The truth….
Are you ready for the truth?
Let the battle begin…..
