Let's Clear Up Some Falsehoods Spread about the WELS Church and Change Conference
Someone found out that the next Church and Change conference had scheduled Baptist Ed Stetzer to be the keynote speaker. All he does is travel and speak. A WELS DP addressed the situation at the COP meeting and I found out.
Alas and alack - the Church and Change site did not mention any future conference and certainly did not mention Baptist Stetzer's invite. Rev. Ed had them down on his website, so that means they paid their fee and locked him in. They could pay him what is indelicately called a kill fee to cancel the appointment. I doubt that will happen. Church and Change is going to fight to have their way and replace SP Schroeder.
This is what one Church and Changer brayed at Bailing Water:
This is just another example of your breaking the eighth commandment. I'm sure you read about this first on Ichabod, where Jackson is shameless in what he posts. Ed Stetzer has the Church and Change conference on his schedule, but I didn't see anything on the C and C website about it. I'm assuming you verified his presence in 2009 with the leaders of C and C? Maybe he was invited a long time ago, and after the change in the conference last year (WELS and ELS presenters)maybe he was "disinvited" but he failed to change his calendar? If you posted this and made your accusations before you even verified it with our people, then you're just as shameless as Jackson.
As I wrote above, the WELS COP was concerned about this invitation. The invitation was verified by the Stetzer website and copied with my normal attention to detail.
The anonymous poster is attacking Bailing Water but also impugning the honesty of the DP and Ed Stetzer. I am energized by another reference to the 8th Commandment. This is great fun.
Confidential to Bruce Becker, Church and Change, and the rest of the hooligans you hang around with - You cannot have it both ways. If you want to brag on your blog about shunning a WELS professor to attend a Baptist event (like Ski), then live with the consequences. If you want to book Baptist Stetzer, an event alarming enough to alert the somnolent WELS COP, then live with the facts getting out. Trying to blast people for telling the truth only emphasizes that you consistently deceive people.
