Politics and Potters Field
Rob McCoy seems like a nice guy.
I genuinely like him.
While I can’t say that I “know” McCoy, I did communicate with him a bit while he was involved in the Potters Field scandal.
To be fair, I’ll take this a step farther…in twenty years online, he’s the only figure involved with some sort of church mess that didn’t duck me, lie to me, or ghost me.
He took my calls. answered my texts, and was sometimes honest to a fault.
I’m sure there are things he didn’t tell me, but what he told me was true.
He could be hard to get in contact with because he was always in transit, criss crossing the country speaking at various conservative events about why the church needs to be politically active.
He’s a high profile guy now, taking on the state of California over Covid 19 restrictions.
He’s planted his flag and has gone to war for God and country.
The Potters Field scandal is a forgotten interlude in the career of an ascending political and religious star.
That’s why Rob McCoy is symbolic of everything that’s wrong with the American church.
The place to plant a flag was in Mike Rozell’s ear or any other orifice it would fit.
The reason to go to war was because dozens of young people had been spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically abused by religious despot.
“I kind of think God is saying, Either be relevant or don’t,” the pastor continued. “The governor says that the Church is not essential and the Church doesn’t seem to be moved by his declaration.”said McCoy.
The “Church” that won’t protect its own is already irrelevant where it matters.
What about when the “Church” declares war on its own and precious people are considered collateral damage to the ambitions of its leaders?
The war should have been waged against those who the Bible says deserve a millstone…those who damaged those who Christ died for.
The Potters Field victims have received nothing since the ministry came crashing down, not even an explanation or an apology.
They have tried to rally amongst themselves and protest the ongoing business ventures of their abusers, but they have been left high and dry by the church.
“The Church” doesn’t give a damn.
It’s at war…and there’s an election right around the corner.
Jesus wept…but He’s not a registered voter.
