Tonight I made a very difficult decision to remove the blog post on Rev. Charles Jenkins and Mundi Griffin. Not because I don''t stand by my post. Anyone who knows me will tell you, I shoot straight from the hip on the issue of truth; And if something had changed in my opinion I would say it with no trepidation.
The post has taken a nasty bitter turn. It has become a debate about whether I should have posted it in the first place. It has become an nasty exchange of words people attacking people. If one person makes a point another person makes a point, with even more venom.
The fact is, Rev. Charles Jenkins stood in his pulpit and said he had an affair with the Senior Vic President of Operations for Fellowship Church. Mundi Griffin has been the only person to hold that title. So I did not break the story, he broke the story and I simply gave her a place to tell her side of the story, while also addressing the issue of pastoral authority and the abuse thereof. By doing so I was not saying that she was an innocent party in this affair. She was absolutely wrong and she must account for her own role. Be clear, they have shared responsibility. Nothing can absolve either them of that fact.
I'm taking a step back and becoming still. I know that God will give me clarity in my stillness. Will I reactivate the post? At this moment in time, only God knows and I ALWAYS listen.
I took the post down to give me some space to pray, seek God's face about the MADNESS. All the nasty has been disheartening and extremely unsettling and I will not allow my blog to be a epicenter for madness.
