My researcher, a doctor of divinity, wrote:
If Jeske did not speak, who did? I would think the Bethesda website would have that piece of information.
Perhaps there is someone that attended this that will come forward and give witness.
The idea was to attack me for inventing information by citing a source I did not use.
This is exactly the way the Chicaneries played the Ed Stetzer invitation to their malodorous conference. At first, they denied Stetzer was invited, but I knew the Conference of Pussycats was discussing the invitation. By searching on the Internet, my specialty, I found:
1. The Church and Change conference on Stetzer's own calendar.
2. His earlier Tweet where he bragged about getting the invitation.
3. His blog, where he made fun of confessional Lutherans while bragging again about the invitation.
4. The Church and Change website, which said nothing about the speaker. The only source lying about the Chicanery Stetzer invitation was the Chicanery website.
The Chicaneries began saying, "How do you know we haven't canceled Stetzer?" That is one, twisted, deceptive way to avoid the real topic - inviting a Babtist to speak to a Lutheran conference. One pastor was so brow-beaten by these liars that he thought I perhaps had the information wrong. I am only guessing, but I think the invitation was made after Patterson took a bunch of WELS workers to the Exponential Conference where Stetzer spoke. "When Babtists speak, Chicaneries listen," according to a recent poll by George Barna. (I made up the poll.)
So the minders immediately began attacking my veracity again when the union service came up - Jeske and the LCMS leader uniting the Synodical Conference on their own. The Watertown newspaper printed and kept on their website the information that Jeske was the featured speaker, without naming his alleged WELS affiliation. (The LCMS guy was identified by synod - rather lopsided coverage.) Jeske's name was omitted from the Bethesda notice.
The issue is not whether Jeske participated in yet another union worship service. He clearly promotes that, judging from his Church Growth network and such graduates as Ski and Bishop Katie. Jeske now produces a TV show for two synods at once, ever loyal to WELS (fifth generation) and yet pledging to promote LCMS doctrine, practices, and churchgrowthiness. He had to put some LCMS person on his board, too, in order to obtain RSO status in Missouri - the golden ticket for money-raising. Jeske is now a regular speaker at Missouri events.
The issue concerns Chicaneries jumping in to accuse when all the information is verified and linked.
First they said I added information, making it up.
Secondly, without apologizing for their false accusation--an obligation they demand from everyone--they began insisting that Jeske never spoke. He also never spoke at an LCMS district meeting. And he never spoke at Concordia, Mequon (the only school in Mequon he will ever teach at).
The ELS defense for a Roman Catholic bishop marching in procession, with the Little School on the Prairie sem faculty robed, was:
1. He was married and no longer a bishop! (No longer Roman Catholic?)
2. It was not a religious service. (So why did the seminary faculty robe and march in procession? It was clearly a religious dedication service where a Roman Catholic addressed the Lutheran audience.)
3. "Erling Teigen does not have an ecumenical bone in his body, and Greg Jackson knows it." - Rolf Preus. Rolf reads minds while defending the indefensible, proving once again he never comprehended Rome and Justification.
4. The ELS bragged about this Roman Catholic leader in the Mankato Free Press and hid vital details (papist bishop) in their own school annual. "Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive."
The prosecution wishes to close with humorous but edifying comments on the Church and Change board:
- Jeff Davis, who raises money for a commission, has a photo and no bio. The bio went missing after gaining notice on Ichabod. He is always promoting himself. Why hide his vocation? Stealthy!
- Brian Arthur Lampe, CEO Ministries, which is pan-denominational, no longer has his photo and also lacks a bio. Stealthy or perhaps his way of smacking Satan in the jaw.
- Ski is no longer listed on the board. Super-stealthy!
- Bruce Becker is no longer listed on the board. Super-stealthy!
- Mark Jeske has three staff who have served on this board, but his name never comes up on the website. Super-max stealthy!
Don't miss the Church and Change conference in November. This brochure will introduce you to the awesomeness of the gathering.
