Willow Creek Pastor Bill Hybels to Retire; Names Successor

Founding and Senior Pastor Bill Hybels has announced his retirement effective October, 2018. He will remain as “founding pastor” and oversee the expansion of Willow Creek’s Association that provides services and resources to churches and also the Willow Creek Leadership Summit.

Hybels and Willow Creek are no strangers to controversy. The WC Leadership Summit has elevated people like Bill Clinton, Rob Bell and several corporation executives as “leaders to emulate” even though many of them are not even Christians and support homosexual marriage and abortion. Some people believe this is incorporating the ways of the world into the church.

His wife Lynne openly opposes the nation of Israel through “Christ at the Checkpoint,” criticizing Israel while giving a pass to the terrorist organizations who kill in the name of Allah. In typical controversial fashion, Hybels is going out with a bang: he has named Heather Larsen his successor to the lead pastor position having the title of Executive Pastor.

Many of you have weighed in on this so we discuss it in the first segment today and then get to more listener questions and comments.

Rob Bell’s Ambiguity, Wedding Cakes, and ESPN Politics

It’s not surprising to see people attack the deity of Jesus Christ and the truth of Scripture in today’s postmodern, secular society. It’s not even surprising to see attacks on Christians and discrimination at many levels. What is disappointing and tragic however, is to see the worldliness and deception creep right into many churches across the country.

Deceivers such as Rob Bell don’t just show up and start preaching blatant heresy; they gradually begin to seduce unsuspecting believers to distrust, minimize and worst case scenario – to deny the gospel and the person of Jesus Christ as sovereign Lord and God. He is our final authority, but not so with the emergent, people-pleasing church. So there had to be a path paved and Scripture had to be diluted and the gospel watered down or many Christians would not have fallen for so many false teachings.

We touch on Bell’s new book, the religious freedom issue and Supreme Court case involving Christian bakery owner, Jack Phillips, and the leftist leanings of progressive sports network, ESPN.

Double Speak: Islam, Feminism, and Eugene Peterson’s Flip Flop

Today, we will be discussing the controversial statement, and subsequent retraction, of Eugene Peterson’s endorsement of homosexual marriage as “biblical.” We will comment on an article from John Stonestreet at Breakpoint, a good perspective on why Christian leaders like Peterson are suddenly making confusing statements about homosexuality, and the damage it is doing to the Evangelical Church in America.

In our first segment we turn our attention to the emerging “double speak” of the left as it relates to Islam, Feminism, and progressive ideology in America. Why do liberals publicly support Islam, a system that stands against everything liberals value such as abortion, homosexuality and women’s rights? Ryan Mauro of The Clarion Project joins us to look at the hypocrisy of the left regarding Islam.

Juan Valdez: Faith in the Midst of Covid Chaos, Lies

We discuss the many different reactions Christians have to the Chinese coronavirus and government ordinances, restrictions. We also address how the lack of true American history being taught to kids today had led to this cultural moment with so many young people thinking the country is and was always a bad one.

Plus, new surveys saying a majority of Americans no longer see human life as ‘Sacred’ but see humanity as ‘Basically Good.’ And new Barna research shows 87% of Christians believe the USA has been blessed by God. Hmm.
