I don’t have any inside info for you today.
Because I just don’t care.
For years I have maintained a large network among CC people in order that I might provide some truth and insight into how and why this group of men operated.
Despite all sorts of accusations about the veracity of my work, we all know where Calvary Chapel people went to try to find out what was going on in their own non denomination.
They came here and they came here because there was nowhere else to go…their leaders lied to them and kept them in the dark, not believing that they were capable of rightly parsing information.
They still come for that, but it’s not my focus anymore.
I’m weary of doing for timid men what they won’t do for themselves.
The split was a perfect opportunity for CC pastors to demand accountability and transparency from their self appointed leaders.
The split itself was created through lies, slander, and innuendo, that should never have been allowed to take root and fester…but men who prefer to be led won’t challenge those who demand to lead in this dysfunctional troupe.
The few who have stood up have found themselves alone as the main conviction in the CC DNA is the conviction that authority, (legitimate or not) is not to be challenged.
They have either been ignored or had more smoke blown at them from those who will not answer to “lesser” brethren.
Today the group engages in dueling conferences, colleges, and bible schools, and is a bleary echo of what God did back in the day.
That day has passed for this group…and they have no one to blame but themselves.
We’ll still be here for the big stuff…but we’re going to be about better things than old men clinging to illegitimate authority unchallenged.
The rest of the rank and file seem to prefer eating cake…enjoy.
