Village Church, Matt Chandler publish ‘apology.’

Matt Chandler, Village Church offer ‘make it go away’ excuses, call it an apology.
You can read it here. Take some blood pressure meds first, and a few deep cleansing breaths. Read it slowly and carefully, and think about who this apology is really for and exactly what it is they are admitting to doing. Short answer? Not much. The hubris just juts its chest right off the page here.

What on earth are they thinking? They need to STOP already, and just say, “We were wrong.” Jordan Root definitely needs to be under heavy church discipline and oversight, and he still is not, and they are still overlooking some serious issues.

Think about this, just this one thing- he finally *admitted* (after weeks and weeks of misdirection first) to viewing child pornography, LOTS of it. Yet the FBI couldn’t find it on his computer.

HELLO? Is Village Church paying attention to this? Do they understand what this means?

Let me help them. That means he has not repented, because one of the deeds meet for repentance would be Jordan Root stepping up like the man he is most certainly *not* and showing the evidence to the FBI and taking the well deserved penalty. Instead, he gave them a computer he knew perfectly well was ‘clean.’ Why? Because he does not want to be accused of the horrific, vile, disgusting crimes against children he committed. His confession was an act of manipulation, not contrition. He has purveyed the horrific abuse and sexual torture of little kids and he hid the evidence from the FBI, and yet Village Church says he’s not under church discipline because he’s ‘repented.’ And they kept this from their membership for 3 months, but are satisfied that they protected children from Root.

Lord help the children, because Chandler and Village Church leadership have no intention of doing so.

In Isaiah chapter 56, the Lord describes a failed leadership:

“His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.”

I don’t know about the rest, but I do know that the Village church leadership have acted as blind, ill informed watchman who cannot understand what they are dealing with. Are they greedy, abusers themselves, merely naive, arrogant, or something else? I have no idea. God knows why.

I only know what- their letter is not an apology. And they have not cared for the children. There’s a lot more wrong with it, but I don’t have time for all of that. The folly in trusting Jordan’s repentance is self-evident by the fact that in his repentant state he gave the FBI a computer he knew was clear of evidence against him, wasting their time in a farce, protecting himself, and making fools of anybody who trusts him.
