Calling All Pastors

The recent comments here and on the Fighting Fundamentalist Forums with regard to my letter to Dr Shelton Smith of the Sword of the Lord have sparked an overwhelming acceptance for the idea of accountability.

The events surrounding Bob Gray, former pastor of the Trinity Baptist Church in Jacksonville, is seemingly the last straw. When a trusted leader and ambassador of the Gospel forces himself sexually upon innocent children there needs to be more then private gossip and public silence. There needs to be Biblical justice.

Another pastor suggested I write a follow up leader to Dr Smith along the lines of the original. This time it would include the names of other pastors (and their churches) that want to see publications like the Sword of the Lord speak out on this. What do you think?

I will send another copy of the original letter along with a letter stating the following pastors and churches urge you (Dr Smith) to take a lead on this. If you agree, submit your name and church name, town, and state on the comments section of this blog. If you have a direct comment you would like to make to Dr Smith you may leave that as well. I will wait to see the response and then notify you when the new letter with the names will be sent. Let's act now! Fundamentalism has been silent long enough.

I'm so glad that when I went to Fairhaven and one of my college teachers committed sin he was lambasted by the Pastor in front of everyone. There was no sweeping under the carpet there and I respect that SO MUCH. I am so sick of these 'hear no evil - see no evil' types that use all of this Hylesology to excuse and protect the vilest of so-called 'men of God'.
