Tullian Takes TGC, SGM To Task
It was like a swarm of gnats attacking an elephant on Twitter…bloggers, lay people, victims, and one courageous reporter all demanding answers and relentlessly pursuing truth and accountability from Sovereign Grace Ministries and The Gospel Coalition.
The big boys were unyielding.
Then someone showed up with an elephant gun.
In commenting on the TGC defense of C.J. Mahaney in the SGM sex abuse scandals he said;
“Give me a break. These people, they’re family. Of course he knew,” Tchividjian told The Christian Post. “C. J. was, for many years, the micro-managing head of the organization and nothing happened under the umbrella of Sovereign Grace that he wasn’t made aware of, so for anyone to say, ‘Well he didn’t know,’ that’s totally naive.”
“Tchividjian added that he was “pretty disturbed” when Don Carson, Kevin DeYoung, and Justin Taylor published a statement on TGC website in May 2013 which defended Mahaney, saying that it looked “like the good-old boys club covering their own.”
In appreciation of his honesty and grace based theology, TGC sent Tchividjian packing.
He should be grateful…he might get some of that special TGC sauce on him should he stay at that table.
Sportscaster Keith Olbermann has a segment on every show called “The Worst Person In The World”…for that particular day.
If he was a Christian blogger doing the same he’d have to add an extra segment for the nominees, but would have had a clear winner last night.
Joe Carter of the
Faux Gospel Coalition.
Carter is TGC’s media director…so his job last night was to slander and accuse those seeking truth through the media.
He did it well.
He accused honest child advocates of “exploiting victims” by using the hashtag “#istandwithsgmvictims” on Twitter.
Evidently, covering up two decades of child abuse doesn’t qualify as ‘exploitation” and is unworthy of Carters ire.
He tried to smite and spin and smear…but along came Tullian.
Listen to Janet nail the real issues.
