My Take On the Brodersen Resignation
First of all, this is the most honest communication written by a Calvary Chapel leader in my memory.
The facts are laid out simply and graciously.
These men were divided from day one (as we reported) and the contention became too great to continue.
He reiterates the truth…this wasn’t about doctrine or theology, no matter what his detractors say.
Brodersen took more grief than most mortal men could handle but he finally reached his own breaking point.
Now, the Philadelphia contingent can go their own way and Brodersen and his new organization will go theirs.
I applaud Brodersen for his honesty and his desire to do what God has called him to do…not to try and replicate what Chuck Smith did.
We’ll see what happens from here…my guess is that the old guard will die with it’s aging leaders…but we shall see.
What I know for sure is that some guys better hide the beer…
