Who’s the dull one?

In the last few days, we’ve been wondering why leaders like Warren, Noble and Furtick have such a dim view of Bible study. In the case of Furtick, at least, I think I’ve found an answer. He doesn’t like the Bible. For a bit of background, Furtick has been leading some in his church in ...

Running the Numbers

I made a comment in the When to Stop Eating thread that I think deserves a little more thought.  Last weekend, Elevation had their grand opening for their first permanent site. It drew their largest attendance yet. As Furtick reports: Over 7000 people at Elevation this weekend! Over 500 salvations! Eph. 3:20! Thank you Jesus! 500 ...

When to stop eating?

Steven Furtick says that we can study the Bible so much that it can be harmful. For example, he warns people not to go to churches where they learn about things like the doctrines of grace and “stuff your face until you’re so obese spiritually that you can’t even move.” Eating God’s Word is an ...

Dissent within the camp

Oh no. Steven Furtick appears to have fallen off Noble’s scoreboard wagon (to mix metaphors). He quotes this approvingly this morning: God will use the Gospel to lead men to Christ if the devil himself preaches it. And you all thought he didn’t read Pajama Pages.

The Worst Sunday Ever at Elevation

Or at least that’s how Steven referred to it when greeting attenders last week. You see, Steven said he was tired of hearing that Elevation was a one-man show, so he decided to have all the volunteers take the week off… First, let me stop here for a moment. This is disingenuous to begin with. ...

Does this Describe Your Pastor?

Here we see Furtick once again slamming other Pastors…something he tells the rest of us not to do: I am saying that the way we train pastors in our country prepares them to be more like Mister Rogers than Joshua. Or Jesus. And most pastors who are formally trained graduate with a Ph.D in pomp ...

Nice Perspective from Furtick

Furtick kinda addresses some of his issues this morning on his blog…read the entire post here. While he does take a moment to congratulate himself, he ends well: I have said, and will say, some dumb things.  I’ve said some inaccurate things.  Sometimes, I’ve said accurate things in dumb ways.  If it every sounds like ...

Furtick slings the manure

Here we see Furtick throwing another attack towards the Church:  Furtick Tweets: Some churches are like mushroom farms: the people are kept in the dark and fed manure. Here again we see that Furtick’s rules for bashing churches only applies to Elevation and his personal friends. He can say preachers are feeding their people manure ...

Angry Singalong

In this video we see Steven Furtick rage against churches with an angry little rewrite of the campfire favorite, “Kumbaya”.  Here are Furtick’s new lyrics: Kumbaya my Lord, Kumbaya. Our Church is stuck in the 1950’s and we won’t change anything my Lord, Kumbaya. An Entire generation is dying and going to Hell with no ...

What I learned at Thr3e

After the huge success of their Thr3e conference, Elevation decided to do it again this year and call it Impart. They also more than doubled the registration price for the one day event from $300 to $700. It seems that registration hasn’t been going as quickly as they may have hoped (some might be inclined ...
