Is God Using Bloggers To Purify The Church?
Journalist Julie Roys ( who was sued by James MacDonald for her reporting on him) says God is using journalists and bloggers to purify the church.
“Journalists & bloggers have exposed rampant corruption in the evangelical church. And it’s no accident. It’s part of a powerful move of God to purify His Church.”
“We are at a critical juncture in the Evangelical Church. Much of the leadership at the top is corrupt. And those who aren’t corrupt are looking the other way. And I am convinced God’s bowl of wrath is full.”
She says a lot of great things in this video and I believe all Christians should watch it.
She’s relatively new to the game.
I’m almost two decades in.
All the major ministries whose scandals she notes (GFA, Tom Randall, etc), are all either intact or on the comeback trail…even James MacDonald is on the mend.
If God is purifying the church, He’s doing a poor job of it.
The only differences between now and when I started is that there are many more people speaking out and much more exposure to the issues.
The best bloggers get invited to conferences and have speaking engagements…I was only invited to go to hell… repeatedly.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…the problem is as great in the pews as it is in the pulpits.
Ministries depend on free will giving to financially survive.
Until they cut off the money…the bad guys will continue to thrive.
