For those who were wondering why Skip Heitzig canceled Leonard Sweet…Moriel Ministries and Jacob Prasch give us a little insight
Actually, I gave you the insight when it happened…he caved in to the wicked demands of the ODM Inquisition.
“Mr. Sweet is by no scriptural standard a Christian, but by every reasonable standard a New Age mystic and a pure Gnostic. It was therefore with some delight we are informed from the USA that the event has been cancelled”
We believe pastor Heitzig made the correct decision. It may be that he and his staff were not fully informed about the nature of Mr. Sweet’s heretical beliefs at the time he agreed to host the conference. We are aware that multiple Calvary Chapel pastors contacted Pastor Heitzig expressing their own concerns, but in this regard we cannot comment further. Plainly however, it was not Skip Heitzig who was the villain. Mr. Sweet on the other hand propounds views nothing short of apostate which many would hold to be of demonic inspiration. Our own fear of course is that such an event featuring Mr. Sweet would have damaged the reputation of Calvary Chapel.
In light of these events we have removed our own report and we urge the various other ministries and websites to remove their own as well. None of us are immune from mistakes and in today’s world they can be very easy to make. We applaud Skip Heitzig’s actions and salute the godly integrity of his decision to cancel the event. We trust other websites and electronic newsletters will drop the matter quickly and consider it a closed affair.
There’s the deal Skip cut with the real devils in this debacle…slime Sweet or be silent when these talking snakes do so, and all will be forgiven.
Heitzigs actions do not reflect any sort of integrity or godliness, but are the cowardly reactions of what he is, a pure opportunist.
While Prasch was posting this ungodly libel of a brother, Heitzig was in Southern California hosting a faux “celebration” of Chuck Smiths life which was also an opportunity to pitch his new documentary “Riptide” which is about the past, present, and future of the Calvary Chapel movement…a future that I’m convinced still includes Skip in Southern California if he can find a way back in.
Let me be clear here at the risk of offense.
If this is the kind of leadership that CC is going to endorse the future looks bleak.
If the real power in the “movement” belongs to accusers of the brethren like Jacob Prasch then be assured that the Holy Spirit of truth will remove Himself from the premises.
A hate crime has been perpetrated against a brother by Prasch, the ODMs, and Heitzig…and I refuse to believe that God will not respond.
If hating the brethren and teaching the brethren to hate continues to be a Calvary distinctive then “Ichabod” will replace the dove as a symbol of “movement” parked in the mud it has slung.
There’s a battle for the soul of the “Jesus Movement”…the question before the house is whether the real Jesus people will win.
