The Return Of Potters Field
While there is much to cover in their statement, I want to focus on one thing this morning.
The statement was written by their lawyer.
That, is a statement all by itself and screams everything that is wrong with the church today.
It is both an announcement and a warning.
It tells everyone who they will be dealing with if they challenge the narrative or the people behind the narrative that is posted there from now on.
“Brothers and sisters” will quickly become defendants and plaintiffs.
This will be resolved legally in the courts, not biblically in the church.
This isn’t a big enough story for the “institutional” media.
It will be covered by bloggers like me and probably by me, period.
The one thing that these “ministries” are aware of is that the bloggers and the people they represent can’t afford lawyers and risk financial destruction by pursuing the truth.
Many of the “survivors” are barely hanging on and will prefer struggling in silence rather than risk more destruction by speaking about their experiences.
There is no mention of grief or repentance in this missive because businesses neither grieve nor repent.
Jesus, however, wept.
