Updated post on Phillip/Philip Stephen Stallings (Mr-Paradox) the "Calvinist" false convert (screen shots added)

For anyone still looking for evidence, I updated the post from last October, on Philip/Phillip Stephen Stallings. Stallings  apparently is in a race to the finish line with liar Ergun Caner for who can blaspheme the name of Jesus more effectively using different pet sins.  See, Ergun is just lying to cover up other lies because he thought he could make Jesus look more amazing by doing so.  Stallings is lying to cover up his sexual perversion.

There is also another post calling for his repentance at
Design of Providence: A Warning and a Call for Repentance: Philip Stallings (also UPDATED as of May 28, 2014)

UPDATE May 21, 2014
Stallings has changed his profile after Francis Turretin issued a
warning to all his Facebook friends and Stallings' Facebook friends.  TurretinFan has removed the post since, after Stallings deactivated his account.  I am not sure why.  In any case, it *was* there.

Stallings' new profile is now here:
https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000675274712 - note - when I clicked on the link with my phone it takes me to my own profile and I've had others say it takes them to theirs, too. But on my computer it works.  I'm not sure why.

(6-13-2014) he has a third new profile:
https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004772565692

Also, Design Of Providence took his post down because Tim Brown told him Stallings was off Facebook and is seeking help.  However, that was before the third profile showed up.  Here is a pdf copy of Design of Providence's post which is the second on the page.

Design Of Providence PDF copy

Stallings blocked me from that third profile preemptively before I even knew about it. Sounds repentant doesn't it?

 (end 6-13-2014 addition)

Here's a pdf copy as of right now. As you can see, Tim Brown, his staunch pro 2nd amendment defender, who my husband and I and a husband of one of Phillip's targets spent far too much time arguing with in gmail, is his only friend as of the creation of the pdf.)

Peacemaker Ministries - Tim Butler's experience

I just read through this multi part story about one young seminarian Tim Butler and his experience at his church with "Peacemaker Ministries."

Worth a read, familiarize yourself with how the enemy operates within the camp to cause division and enable corrupt leadership:

Unfolding My Story: The Dangers of Peacemakers

Unfolding My Story: Church Abuse and Trust

Unfolding my story: Twisting Scripture  HUGE RED FLAG - excerpt:
Consider when Peacemaker asks , “Why a Peacemaking Team?” Here is part of their answer:
Because God calls his children to serve their leaders and to advance their vision to build his church. (Emphasis is Peacemaker's.)


Unfolding my story: Propaganda  excerpt:
Once people started to learn what was happening to me and my family at our old church, some people stepped up to try to help. This did not serve to cause the pastor to rethink his actions, but to annoy him — he complained to me, and, in fact, to the councils one night, about how he was having to waste time “explaining” things to people who were concerned about what he was doing to me. By “explaining,” it turned out, he meant convincing people that the things they were doing to me were not happening at all. If someone questioned an action that was harder to conceal, such as why the church would go to my seminary and jeopardize my work there, the questioner was told, for example, that the church was really trying to “help” me by getting “counsel” for me.

Like the word abuse I discussed earlier, at first I hesitated to call what the pastor was doing “propaganda.” But to call it something else, I have realized, is to help conceal really ugly actions that are continuing to be deployed to abuse more people at that church and churches like it.

After reading those, it seems like it would be better known as "the Enforcer Ministry for Purpose Driven Pastors" or something along those lines.

Article about Tullian Tchividjian blasting TGC for their defense of Mahaney in the SGM scandal mysteriously pulled, (then reposted)

(NOTE 8:37am Central, May 21, 2014: apparently the article is back up as of three hours ago
 http://www.christianpost.com/news/tullian-tchividjian-blasts-sovereign-grace-ministries-handling-of-sex-abuse-scandal-prematurely-departs-the-gospel-coalition-120062/   here is the author's explanation:



so, apparently at this point, false alarm re the Evangelical Industrial Complex, which is good news.  They certainly still could pull a stunt.)

An article posted tonight on the Christian Post in which Tullian Tchividjian was quoted as being critical of The Gospel Coalition handling of C J Mahaney has already been pulled. I wonder why? Is the Evangelical Industrial Complex rearing its ugly head again?

Perhaps the world will never know.

I also saved a pdf copy because eventually that cache will disappear.
Tchividjian added that he was "pretty disturbed" when Don Carson, Kevin DeYoung, and Justin Taylor published a statement on TGC website in May 2013 which defended Mahaney, saying that it looked "like the good-old boys club covering their own."

"I thought it was premature. I thought it was insensitive. I communicated with the guys who wrote this statement that I was disappointed, that I thought it was unwise and premature and that they needed to clarify that their statement was not a statement from The Gospel Coalition, per se, but was their own personal statement," Tchividjian explained. "There were some of us on the coalition, or who were associated with it, who didn't want to be associated with their defense of C. J.," he continued. "I've just been sort of disgusted by the whole thing."
Regarding the theological issue of his supposed "antinomian" tendencies:

Yet while "no one from The Gospel Coalition formally reached out to me or questioned anything I ever posted or asked me to clarify anything I ever posted," Tchividjian noted that he began to feel a shift in the site's theology and how his doctrine was being received based on what other contributors were posting.

"I was told the other day that conversations about me and about what I had been saying had been going on for a year, which I didn't know about until the other day," said Tchividjian.
...
"My frustration was, I was never reached out to, called or emailed from any of the powers that be, saying, 'Hey listen, there are a couple of us that have some questions that have been raised, would you care to clarify?' said Tchividjian. "Or ask me questions! Or even invite me to this meeting, if my name was on the docket!"

Billy Graham's grandson said that he was also frustrated that he had never received personal feedback or criticism about the content of his posts from TGC leadership, saying that the thrust of everything he wrote was about God's grace and had never been "harsh" or "divisive." -- source

That's his problem.  He didn't call heretics brothers in Christ, and call anyone who disagreed Nazis and racists.  That's what he should have done if he wanted a warm send-off from The Gospel Coalition.

Interesting that the guy they are all labeling "antinomian" is the one who is actually (at least in this article) blasting people for their sinful handling of this sex abuse and the ensuing cover up scandal, while they sit around making like nothing is wrong with what they're doing and pretending they're all about obeying the law. Right. So who's the antinomian again?

(disclaimer - I myself have some reservations about Tullian, but these people are being ridiculous at this point.  Steve Lawson's blatant twisting of Tullian's words at Shepherd's Conference 2014 was unconscionable, but I guess it's ok for a well respected pastor to misrepresent and essentially lie about people if he disagrees with them.)

See his patient love


(English lyrics are approximate)
Come ye daughters, share my mourning:
See him! – Whom? – The Bridegroom Christ.
See him! – How? – A spotless Lamb.
See it! – What? – His patient love.
Look! – Look where? – On our offense.
Look on Him. For love of us
He Himself His Cross is bearing.

O Lamb of God most Holy,
Who on the Cross did languish.
O Savior meek and lowly,
Who suffered bitter anguish.
The sins of man Thou bearest,
Our every grief Thou sharest.
Have mercy on us, Jesus.


"Who has believed what he has heard from us? 
And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

"For he grew up before him like a young plant,
and like a root out of dry ground;
he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

"He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
yet he opened not his mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth.
By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
and as for his generation, who considered
that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people?
And they made his grave with the wicked
and with a rich man in his death,
although he had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in his mouth.

"Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him;
he has put him to grief;
when his soul makes an offering for guilt,
he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant,
make many to be accounted righteous,
and he shall bear their iniquities.
Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,
and he shall divide the spoil with the strong,
because he poured out his soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
yet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors."
--Isaiah 53

The uselessness of an ECFA accreditation

I recently wrote to the Evangelical Center for Financial Accountability.  I had learned recently that they gave accreditation to Mars Hill  church in Seattle in Sept 2012, despite the fact that they used $210K of church funds in 2011 and 2012 to buy Mark Driscoll a spot on the New York Times' Bestseller list.  How did this escape their notice at that time?  Did they not have access to Mars Hill's financial records then?

Here is what I sent them:

Message
Buying a place on the NYT bestseller list, and having supposed 'independent' people on the Board of Accountability who sell their books at Mars Hill Seattle and speak at their events? How is that not a conflict of interest? This violates your code of conduct for the organization. So having them accredited makes your accreditation look pretty hollow.


But I got a response from one Michael Martin who handles legal issues I guess.

The letter had a disclaimer at the end that said this:

So, since I don't know if that means I can't share it,  I'll paraphrase.  They reassured me that Mars Hill has been a member in good standing, in compliance with their "committed to our high standards" since September 2012, and that their BOAA is also in compliance with their standards for board governance.

And then he went on to tell me that they also buy the whole non apology thing for the ResultSource/Mars Hill/New York Times bestseller fiasco.  They've apparently swallowed it hook line and sinker.   I guess it really is true that it's easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission. If you just admit it was poor judgement (a la Bill Clinton) then everyone accepts it as OK.

To me, this says that everyone's accreditation at ECFA has just lost all value.  Good to know that pastors and churches and para church ministries who have worked hard to do everything above board are now just as trustworthy as Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill.  Inspiring.
