    I’m more alarmed by the biblical illiteracy in the Church, especially among the leadership, than I am in the general public; perhaps especially in those churches who consider themselves evangelicals/fundamentalists/bible-believing adherents. I delight in the opportunities to rehearse biblical allusions from literature/stories for students who would otherwise miss the reference, but basic, bedrock doctrines are eluding the so-called saints.

    thank you for the blunt assessment and reminders.

    great artwork too…

    I could be wrong, but it strikes me that the condoning of abuse has almost gone “corporate”. Back in the day you might have heard or suspected of something unsavory about a pastor or priest, but no one was really sure. Recently I’ve seen situations in which the wrong-doing almost seems to be common knowledge among a large group or church body, and still nothing is done. I’ve sometimes wondered if in a strange way the wider, corporate knowledge almost gives people “cover” for not addressing the situation… Witness PFM, or the RC Church scandals, or the SBC…

    That is indeed part of the problem.
    It is also true that they have learned to manage scandals corporately…with PR specialists and social media consultants…

    Dr. Duane @ 11:37
    I remember years ago, taking some accounting classes, the instructor observed that the usual procedure, when a major player was caught embezzling or other chicanery, they were quietly let go for fear of damaging the corporate image – no accountability for the perp
    re many churches following that game plan? Looks like it… 😓

    This post took my right to Mr. Johnny Cash’s foreboding song, “When the Man Comes Around.”

  10. Em- our heir apparent CEO was terminated for violating company ethics. They kept the reason at the very top, as the reason never leaked. Even senior managers were heard saying, “didn’t they vet better?” The guy lost a couple hundred thousand in profit sharing that year, but got over $10M as a golden parachute, and kept whatever equity he already had.

    Your line in the article, “The punishment will be based on your level of knowledge and responsibility.” reminds me of the punishment for bearing false witness in the bible. If you bore false witness and that innocent person was punished, the person bearing false witness got the EXACT same punishment. IOW, if your false witness results in an innocent man being put to death, you are put to death. Tie that in with sins of omission and see how it relates to the passage when the boss gets back.

    People who do the best they can with what they’re given and who don’t do the kinds of things to others they wouldn’t want done to themselves, need no Boss.
