    On a previous thread I said that I didn’t see the letter written by the CCA as a power grab…I stand corrected.

    What a great statement! It’s gracious, thoughtful, and I love the statement he includes by Chuck Smith. It totally makes his point.

    I have always respected BB. My respect for him after this only continues to grow. I was a CC pastor for many years and left over theological and philosophical reasons. I don’t agree with much of Brian’s theology but I believe he has handled himself in a very honorable manner over the last 15 years since Chuck Smith lured him home from England with the promise of taking over, something that really never happened until Chuck’s passing.

    Nice to see Broderson has a spine.

    Calvary Chapel may go the way of the Dinosaurs.

  11. K.O. says:

    Again, the same has happened through the ages. Once it leaves the homes or small gatherings they become ripe for dissension. The Body of Christ is two or more and was never intended to be any more than small groups. May we grow in this knowledge and build each other up and none fall through the cracks.

  12. Danny Iselin says:

    The CCA represents a Presbyterian model or at the least a plurality of elders administrating what they deny is a denomination. Broderson didn’t let the mantle fall down upon him. He basically yanked it off Chuck Smith on the founder’s deathbed. The general public must remember that the congregational participants in Calvary Chapel Churches have no membership status (because there is none–a carryover from the drop in days of the Jesus Movement) and therefore have no say as to how their financial contributions are spent. In addition the senior pastor is the virtual pope, who can fire all underling “pastors” and any one else on “staff.” The biggest kicker is that most converts to this movement are former Catholics, who are unfamiliar with basic Protestant democratic ecclesiology. Totally “non-professional” on both ends, yet they would claim it is all of the Spirit’s leading. FOLLOW THE MONEY, HONEY!

    What would Jesus think? Feed his sheep, don’t bring in fake news like prosperity gospel and positive thinking. Everyone likes a friendly person, wealthy or healthy or not. But the truth sets us free. Jesus is the truth, there is no other name under heaven by which you must be saved. No mantra, no eastern meditation, no breathing techniques, no false hopes in coming back as a cow will cover the sins of our souls from missing the mark of God. Only the shed blood of God’s only begotten Son can cover our sins. We can have his Rightousness applied to our account. He paid in full our sin debt, it is finished. We become Justified, just as if I had never sinned. I have put on Christ. He so loved me, that while knowing I was going to be a sinner, He gave his Son for me. Nothing in my power, not visualization, or positive thinking, or hail Maries can save me from my sins. Preach and teach Jesus. Chuck did.

    Is that French?

    Pastor Broderson
    1 Corinthians 14:33
    For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.

    John 8:44
    You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
