What is going on with David Platt and McLean Bible Church?
ChurchLeaders.com ran a story July 22, 2021 titled ‘David Platt and McLean Bible Church Elders Sued After Recent Elder Vote Exposes Major Problems.’
Christianity Today came out with a similar piece the same day, titled ‘Platt’s McLean Bible Church Hit With Attempted Takeover, Lawsuit from Opposition.’
For footage and a breakdown of what happened at the church service and congregational meeting in question, check out A.D. Robles video from July 21, 2021 titled ‘Chaos at McLean Bible Church Business Meeting/Worship Service.’
The long and short of it seems to be that the increasing Wokeness of many evangelical Christian leaders in America – notably including David Platt – is receiving impassioned pushback from lay Christians.
At first blush, it may seem as though the laypeople objecting are the ones out of order. And they no doubt are sometimes. But then that is to be expected when the leadership is itself also out of order. Presuming to write Progressive politics into God’s Word and present it as a new and better orthodoxy, this is what you get.
As Proverbs 18:17 tells us,
“The first to plead his case seems right,
Until another comes and examines him.”
Whatever is really going on at McLean Bible Church, a team of security guards escorting a member from the building rather than allowing for a cross-examination of leadership does not speak to an abundance of integrity in the process or paradigm of those leaders.
