    So how does he explain away those allegations and running the nightclub after leaving CcFtl?

  2. Michael says:


    Among the weak minded and idolatrous he doesn’t have to explain.
    He’s “forgiven”…

  3. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Well technically he is forgiven. After all, which of his sins did Jesus not cover?
    Now, I would suggest that he is not repentant.

    The irony is that churches may pay for consulting, counseling and “edification” (whatever that means) for theology, methods and practices that in some measure led to and/or covered his fall. One would think he, instead, should be used as a negative case study for congregations which wish to avoid similar scandals and abuse.

    I have been more careful over the years as to what and when to share what I know of the deep corruption and moral putridity of CC. That it went all the way to the top and some of the near tiers, is too much for many to bear. Too many people liked living in the dark, didn’t want to know and I was, frankly, tired. Yet, many of my friends have been greatly aware that I had plenteous, factual information. Finally, one person–who previously didn’t want to know– asked a question and out came the long, muddled history and legacy of CC. What precipitated it? A situation that I laid odds upon (The CC pattern of immorality and congregant abuse is well-documented and, therefore, predictable). This person had become aware of some unbelievable things and finally wanted to know. Who was the graphic example used–the poster child for so much that was wrong and rotten among the CC superstars? Bob Coy. Weird. I will be sending this link to my dear friend. They will finally hear this.

    Thank you, Michael, for persevering!

    We, here, are grateful. 🙂

    Wow… I am honestly surprised it took him this long.

  7. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Anyone who ends up doing business or church with someone like Coy are idiots.
    Like any employer, Google and see what dirt you find.
    It’s too easy to protect yourself – I have no sympathy or compassion for them.

    “There’s gold in them thar pews . . .”

    I mean, it would be laughable if not so disgusting. Yes, anybody who enlists him to “consult” on anything to do with church or ministry or God or integrity will have nobody to blame but themselves.

  9. Michael.

    Do you think CC /Jesus People was real or was it fake from the start?
    I’m referring all the way back to 67 and Chuck Smith meeting Frisbee. I’m not asking about Frisbee, attendees in the pew or sitting on the floor, just Smith and later lieutenants.

    Information feels to me like Drano. It just keeps eating away at idealism. But even as idealism corrodes away, I still dont know what I think of Smith. And its not like I’m a young man, with no experiances to form opinions from.

  10. Michael says:


    In my opinion, the Jesus People movement (which CC was only a part of) was the last real American revival.
    Revival is always messy…

  11. UnCCed says:

    A bit off-topic, but I wonder with regard to the CC divide:
    1) On which side does Bob put himself.
    2) On which side does either “side” (I’m of Don, I’m of everyone who dares to disagree with him) put Bob.
    It will be telling which Db lists Bob’s ministry – which side’s ministry list.

  12. Michael says:


    My guess will be that he is affiliated with neither.
    Calvary Chapel and Coy both have too much baggage to make a marriage work…

  13. UnCCed says:

    Thanks Michael,
    But your answer begs another question, one I didn’t realize till thinking this through.
    During one of my CC “trainings” it was explained to start in nonprofit in the US, you must state your religious ordination (for brevity’s sake, leaving out the christianeeze).
    I think that’s partially untrue in that you can theoretically start your own denom or 5013c without affiliation with anyone, but that’s longer and requires more $.
    Anyway, since Bob was ordained and later use that to register with FL for tax purposes, won’t he reuse it for the same reasons?
    If so, doesn’t that make whichever CC side for oversight in FL culpable?
    In other words, unless he got his own corp in FL, won’t he HAVE TO technically be a CC?
    You see where I’m going.

    I have no idea what BobCoy’s studies were like. I think I listened to a 1/4 of one once. Does this mean that a person can’t be genuinely ministered to while unknowingly listening to a study by a pastor who is no longer a pastor because of sexual sin? I’ve wondered about this for awhile.
