    Sean Hannity rocks. It’s his interview. He controls it. Either the guest answers the questions posed to him or he gets his microphone cut. These people deserve no respect anyway. I am glad Hannity gave him his comeuppance. He deserved it. and worse. rolling pin. head.

    Tertullain Tchidvijian and Double Dipping

    Now that Tullian is getting comfortable on his lofty pedestal at Coral Ridge, he is moving forward with his personal agenda which often centers around his ever-increasing friendships with the “New Calvinists”. And, of course, Tullian has his own book, Surprised by Grace, coming out in a few months (Release Date: May 31). We predict it will be quite a spectable. Expect more self-promotion and backslapping with his Calvinista buddies on all of their blogs. What a racket! What we wonder the most is WHEN are these guys writing their books? We assume the royalties go directly into their pockets, so are they “writing their masterpieces on company/church time”? That’s called “double-dipping”.

    Coral Ridge Presbyterian Splits

    What a legacy for Coral Ridge! Whether or not we approve of the tactics the dissidents used to try and oust their brand new pastor, we still find Tchividjian’s actions reprehensible! As we stated in a previous post, the Coral Ridge members really need to educate themselves on this hyper-Calvinist crowd. We have found these men to be demeaning to those who do not agree with their precise theology. These puffed-up guys are not true Calvinists (with whom we have no problem) – they are what we call “Calvinistas”. There is a HUGE difference! The Wartburg Watch is chockfull of information about them.

    Now that Tully is revealing his alliances on his blog and through his professional associations, it’s time for the Coral Ridge congregation to project into the future. What do they want their church to be like in the decades to come? You can definitely learn a lot about the future by studying the past. And rest assured, these Calvinistas have a fairly short past that can be thoroughly investigated, especially on the internet. Silence is definitely not golden!

    We believe the pendulum has swung way too far to the right, and we don’t believe it will stay in that position for very long. This group is relatively small in number — that’s why they have to duplicate themselves in these reformed organizations (Gospel Coalition, Alliance for Confessing Evangelicals, Together for the Gospel, and the Council on Biblical Manhood a

    Church Split At Coral Ridge Presbyterian:

    Coral Ridge even included billionaire Rich DeVos (Amway co-founder) among its ranks. Rich’s contributions were probably substantial. As the Moral Majority lost ground and Christians became disillusioned with the concept of using politics to moralize the nation, church membership has waned. Desiring to be a beacon on a hill once again, Coral Ridge members were probably awed that the legacy of Billy Graham could live on if they chose one of his seven grandsons as their senior pastor.

    The problem is Tullian Tchividjian is NOT Billy Graham! As far as we can tell, he doesn’t share the same theology as his grandfather. Here’s a case in point. While we understand that many churches DO NOT include an altar call at the end of every church service (neither of us attend churches that do), it seems that this was part of Coral Ridge’s tradition. Oh, there’s that word again…tradition. The problem with Tully’s swift change in doing away with an altar call is this – that was the hallmark of Billy Graham’s ministry. Now his grandson is suddenly getting rid of it! Tchividjian has been at the helm of Coral Ridge for eight months now. Why he didn’t go more slowly or get the input of the congregation is surprising to us. Of all the changes he could have made, that one is the most ironic.

    We are saddened that D. James Kennedy’s only legacy, his daughter, has been banished from the congregation her father started.

    TULLIAN TCHIVIDJIAN AND TRANSPARENCY
    Fri Mar 12, 2010
    This post was first published on December 11, 2009, as we wrapped up our series on Tullian Tchividjian and Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church.

    After extensive research, we are convinced that Tullian “played it close to the vest”, withholding from the Pastor Search Committee and leadership his future plans for Coral Ridge, which are becoming more and more evident. In our opinion, this was not only deceptive but dishonest. Please be sure to read our concluding comments, which have been “penned” today.

    As we wrap up our coverage of Coral Ridge’s new pastor, we have to wonder one thing – just how transparent was Tulllian Tchividjian with the Pastor Search Committee as well as the leadership of the church? Did they know about the colleagues with whom he associates? He is certainly being transparent on his blog in promoting them along with their books! (You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours…) Although Coral Ridge has a strong reformed tradition, is Hyper-Calvinism the direction in which the members now want to go because that’s where the church is heading and in a hurry!

    Coral Ridge, much like Bellevue Baptist Church, had a theological giant at its helm for such a long period of time. D. James Kennedy was heavily involved in the Moral Majority, and he often focused on America’s Christian heritage. At one time the church was bursting at the seams with close to 10,000 members in the 1990

    Nobody stops to think or ask “who is Tullian Tchidjivan?” Oh. He is the grandson of Billy Graham. Really? He is as FAR AWAY from Billy Graham’s Conservative Baptist preaching as it gets. Tullian is a hypocrite and faker. He was raised spoiled and rich. Was taken away in a cop car when 16. Fell into grave sin. The quintessential prodigals son until what? HE got saved and became a Liberal Presbyterian pastor? Once a rebellious person, Still a rebellious person. And what does he preach? Grace. Well how is that going for you Tullian when your denomination the Presbyterians defunded Israel of 21 million dollars? Defunded Caterpillar of their investment money? and 2 other corporations? Did you stop to think they would lose jobs? Because they did. YOU and your denomination put Americans OUT of work at a time when unemployment is running 25 % and higher in some sectors. How does that mesh with your message of GRACE, HUH? HUH? Hypocrite! Liar! Go soak your head man! Nobody listen to this hypocrite! Rolling pin. Head.

    Pastor Tullian Tchivijian was a spoiled, rich, brat of a child and now he is a spoiled, rich brat of an adult who has psychological problems resulting from being a rebellious person who hurt himself and his family. Then when he “decided” to follow Christ he became a Liberal Presbyterian Pastor and we should care what he says about grace? How does it FEEL Pastor to defund Caterpillar and 2 others companies of 21 million dollars cutting jobs and aid to Israel? How does that FIT with your GRACE message you hypocrite! Sit down and shut up! Rolling pin. Head. Nobody listen to this hypocrite! How much dam attention do you need? Jump off a cliff!

    My parents did everything they could for him: private schools and counseling, but nothing worked. One night after an intense argument with his parents, his dad told him to leave. The police were there to escort him out.

    “I felt no remorse. I felt no regret. In fact i was actually happy and pleased with my achievements. I was free to live every young guy’s dream,” he remembers.

    Now Tullian had time to do whatever he wanted – and that meant surfing.

    It wasn’t that Tullian grew up in a dysfunctional or abusive home. In fact, his parents were loving Christians who taught him to love God.

    “I never doubted the existence of God. I never disbelieved in the authority of the Bible and the reality of Jesus and the cross, never. My problem was not intellectual, my problem was experiential. I just simply wanted to have fun and live my life the way I wanted to live it without anyone telling me what to do. My great fear was if I surrendered my life over to the Lord, He would strip me of all of the fun and excitement that this world has to offer.”

    Tullian stayed with the families of friends until they kicked him out, too. He dropped out of high school and worked at restaurants and in construction. But instead of paying his bills and rent, he wasted his money on drugs, alcohol, and girls.

    “I stole, I was a thief. I mean from every employee I’ve ever worked for, I stole. I was a survivor, I knew how to make ends meet. I knew how to get what I needed, and what

    Here is a bit of history on Tullian Tjivian from another website. He was a rebellious young man who hurt his family and caused them much trouble. When he decided to “believe” he chose the Liberal Presbyterian Church as far away from the Conservative Baptist religion his grandfather employed. He is still making trouble and causing a fuss because at his heart is rebellion. Not submission to Christ. Had he been submitted to Christ he would not have joined such a denomination which has now approved homosexual unions and defunded Israel. He is no one to follow. No none to listen to. Here is an excerpt:
    CBN.com – How does the middle son of a family of nine who had a warm and welcoming Christian upbringing reject everything he was raised to know and believe? Well, Tullian Tchividjian had his reasons. Those reasons had nothing to do with his grandfather, evangelist Billy Graham or that Tullian didn’t know better.
    “I’ll never forget the afternoon when my dad said, ‘You’re out of here.’ I lost my temper and my younger brother got so scared at what he was watching that he called 9-1-1 and the police came. So there I am in my mom and dad’s driveway, sitting in the back of the police car looking out the back window at my mom who is weeping, literally watching her 16-year-old son sitting in the back end of a police car getting ready to be taken away.”
    Life with 16-year-old Tullian was tearing the Tchividjian family apart. His parents did everything they could for h

    Yes. that is what he is saying. He’s a Presbyterian don’t you know? He wants pastors, specifically Evangelical Conservative Pastors to keep their traps shut. And Evangelical politicians to just keep their traps shut too. Then the state and the church would have no interaction at all. What would be the outcome pastor? Liberal domination of both spheres. Liberals dominating churches. Dominating politics and isn’t this what we as Conservative Christians need to fight? Evil? But listen pastor, you just keep STAYING in the Presbyterian Church which just passed gay marriage and robbed Israel of 21 million of funding by defunding Caterpillar and others. Geez. I wonder if anyone LOST their JOBS over at Caterpillar and those other 2 firms when YOUR CHURCH defunded them pastor? YOU must be so proud! OH. I forgot. I”m supposed to just keep my TRAP shut! No problem. I have a rolling pin for idiots like you. And a cast iron fry pan. This pastor needs someone to knock some sense into him.

    It is a good thing they follow Israel rather than Hamas. Which just wants them to stay in their homes so they can get killed. Then Hamas can once again blame Israel for being cruel. Know what cruel is? Getting billions in Gaza as Hamas. Then building luxury homes in parts of Gaza away from 90% of the population which you intentionally keep poor. They have to get fuel and food off of trucks from Israel because they are so broke. The common people are unemployed. Basically on welfare. So the rich Hamas elite get billions from UN and Jimmy Carter and other groups and live lavishly in multi million dollar homes with swimming pools they ask the ordinary citizens to “sacrifice” themselves so they can continue to portray themselves and Gaza as “needy.” They take all the money earmarked for the poor in Gaza and spend it on themselves and more rockets to shoot at Israel all in the name of the “cause” and convince their uneducated masses “it is all for future generations.” You can thank Bill Clinton for this. He was so eater to win a Nobel Peace Prize the bartered the deal with Yassar Arafat in 1995 in Oslo, Norway. The Oslo Peace Accords “gave” Yassar Arafat Judea and Samaria which eventually spawned Hamas from the PLO. Yup. Bill Clinton. The African American President whom Chicago is hailing as their “Messiah.” Rolling pin. Head. All of them. Every last one of them.

    that is a ridiculous notion. Perry is down on the front lines. Why would you want him to go away? Who would defend the Texas border as well as he is. If it wasn’t for Rick Perry so many other bad things we cannot comprehend would be happening. Do you live in Texas? Have you ever lived there? I have. I have friends there. Rick Perry is using every single resource he has in the state of Texas to stop as many people coming in as he can. With no help. Why criticize such a noble effort even if you don’t agree with him being friends or supporting Mitt Romney? Why don’t you separate his support of Mitt Romney in 2012 from what he is doing now? You need some critical thinking skills. And Mike Huckabee is a fine Christian man. If you aren’t going to man up both of you people, RJ and Shasta, and as brave men, go to the Texas border and help then don’t say anything for the men who risk their lives down there everyday. Because your statements make you appear gutless and full of peevish whining.

    Perry is right on about Rand Paul. He would pull all support back from the world and relinquish America to its little tomb. These Jihadists would have full reign of terror everywhere. Then the USA would be the last fortress. With no allies. think of the Neimoller quote “First they came for the Labor Party people. I wasn’t a Labor Party member so I said nothing. Then they came for the Jews and I wasn’t a Jew so I said nothing. Then they came for the Catholics and I wasn’t a Catholic so I said nothing. Then they came for me and there was no one to speak for me.” If you don’t stand up for your friends and allies they will get slaughtered in this world we live in. Once they do the USA is on their own. With no one. So you better stand up for your friends. You know you would stand up for your friends. If they called and asked you to defend their home or interests. You would go. It is no different when nations are friends with other nations. It’s the same. Rand Paul would pull back all financial and military support from everyone around the world. Bring everyone home. Close embassies and military bases put there for a good reason. To subvert terror before it gets to American shores. This type of thinking obviously comes from someone not in the military. With no military background. No understanding of military strategy. And he is as cheap as his father Ron. They are just plain cheapskates. Don’t want to put the money into what is necessary.
