It’s Wednesday and today and for the first time in a long time I’m not sitting in the most beautiful Starbucks in the world. No beautiful view and there isn’t an ice tea next to me instead I’m sitting in my tennis academy office and believe me when I say the view is not the same!
I won’t be doing The Antithesis Hour tonight. There is now an 11 hour time difference between us and quite frankly that is too early for me. We’ll resume next week at the regularly scheduled time. You can download last week’s show here.
This Bob DeWaay situation is baffling. You don’t get Alcoholic Hepatitis overnight. It takes time. Churches don’t usually remove Pastor’s from their jobs when they get sick. Certainly a leave of absence would be in order but removal from their position? Not likely. Knowing the gossipy nature of church life I wonder how many people knew about this and just turned a blind eye because DeWaay is on the “home team”. If this guy can be believed Dewaay was knocking down 2/3 bottles of vodka per day.
I’m sure DeWaay’s fellow compatriots in the war on Warren (Rick Warren) are stunned by this news. Maybe this is why they are relatively silent on this critical issue. Had this been Rick Warren, Mark Driscoll or Rob Bell there would be enough smoke coming from their fingertips to make a forest fire jealous. Guess it’s different when the proverbial shoe is on the other foot huh?
Twin City Fellowship should be commended on how they have handled this situation. There isn’t a need to “call DeWaay out” because he’s already been put out. That is how they did it in the good old days…….listen for yourself here .
Please continue to pray for Bob and his family.
