    “That radical cat, Francis Chan”…. Wow….. you mean I’m not the only one who ‘doesn’t care for” his teaching (aka works centric guilt trips)?

    Because I’m weary and full of rancor, I won’t say much more than I agree with you. 🙂

    “Thankfully, the U.S. Government is doing something to protect it’s workers from fraud…which is more than some churches I could name.”

    Has Skip ever commented on this scandal, as yet? (other than the “he said/she said” excuse email his asst.sent)

    I’m really disappointed that Chan continues to tow the line, especially after what Gayle Erwin exposed.

  5. Michael says:


    Not to my knowledge, nor has there been any response from the Calvary Chapel Association.

    I know for a fact that many pastors have written to both and have received silence in return.

    it makes the men who did speak out shine…and makes me wonder why the hell they want to affiliate with leaders who could care less about the flock if doing the right thing would stain the brand.

    Paige, no you are not the only one.

    I’ve never been one that has seen Chan as one who was guilt tripping people, rather I’ve seen him as one who encouraged people to honestly look at the way they live their lives in response to the things that they claim they believe.

    That being said, my opinion of him has been hanging on by the thinnest if threads as this GFA thing has continued forward. I have literally done dozens of Google searches over the last few months hoping to see him finally come to his senses.

    Glad I wasn’t holding my breath.

  8. JoelG says:

    It’s a fine line, dswoager. I guess it depends on personality. The “encouragement” I’ve heard from Chan sounds more like Law to me. I haven’t read his books. I say preach 100% Pure Gospel, then see what happens in response.

  9. dswoager says:

    JoelG, it definitely is a fine line, which is why I will generally won’t push too far in defending it.

    To me, he at least previously, seemed like a guy who was extremely concerned about being authentic, not just going through the motions, and not coming off as a hypocrite.

    The guy at least seemed to have some integrity, even if I didn’t agree with him completely theologically. His silence on the GFA issue is pretty indefensible though.

  10. Brandon says:

    I’m loosely in dswoager’s boat. And I get more disappointed that he isn’t publicly calling GFA out by the week.

    A blogger repents for supporting GFA.

    A blogger.
