Preview of Next Sunday’s Sermon (March 24, 2019) – False Teaching is Filling Our Churches with Evil

I wanted to encourage everyone to be sure and listen to or read my sermon for next Sunday, March 24th. I am going to include in it an example of the false gospel that is being taught in most every local church today. It is no wonder that we have so many wolves in wool in the pews and so many people being victimized by them when we consider what is being called the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their pulpits and “Christian” books.

I think most of you know by now that I am no friend of CCEF (Christian Counseling and Education Foundation). CCEF has enjoyed virtually unquestioning acceptance of its teaching for years and years now, presented by what appear to be the nicest, wisest, most godly folks you could meet. If these guys and gals say it, it must be true.

It isn’t. And I will prove it to you this Sunday and show you how unbiblical teachings like these are at the root of why so many of you have been oppressed in your local churches by leaders and members who claim to speak for Christ.

The sermon PDF (printed) version will be at Sermon Audio (sermonaudio.com/crc) by Saturday evening. It takes us longer to upload the video and audio versions, usually available by Monday.

Scriptures — A New Tab on the Top Menu Bar of Unholy Charade

We have compiled a list of articles, each written by Pastor Crippen, which address various scriptures that abusers and church leaders often twist and then use against domestic abuse victims.  Each article looks at one Scripture by showing how that Scripture is often twisted and then bringing to light its biblical truth.

In addition to the articles we have listed a few sermons by Pastor Crippen that look at twisted Scriptures.  Links to the audio and PDFs of these sermons are provided.

These articles and sermons can be found on the top menu bar under the new tab: Scriptures

Unholy Charade is Not Affiliated in any Way with the A Cry for Justice (ACFJ) Blog

1 Timothy 1:3-6 As I urged you when I was going to Macedonia, remain at Ephesus so that you may charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine, (4) nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship from God that is by faith. (5) The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. (6) Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion,

I am now compelled, though reluctantly and with sorrow, to make a public statement about my relationship to the blog ministry A Cry for Justice, which is registered to and operated by Barbara Roberts. I need to make it very clear that I resigned from ACFJ last year (Oct 2017).  Over 700 of my sermons and articles remain online there, but please understand that I am not a part of ACFJ and more importantly, that I do not endorse the direction it has been going for some time now. [My first book, A Cry for Justice: How the Evil of Domestic Abuse Hides in Your Church, still bears that title. But that is not to be construed that I am still connected in any way with the ACFJ blog which I originally started some years ago].

Readers should also be aware that TWBTC (the woman behind the curtain) who has so faithfully worked behind the scenes at ACFJ for several years has also recently resigned from there. Her reasons for doing so are the same – ACFJ is no longer fulfilling the mission it was established to pursue. TWBTC told me, “I resigned Sept 6, 2018 as a result of seeing the direction Barb was going and because of other concerns I saw from the backend of the ACFJ blog.”
