Pastor Gregory L. Jackson's Author's Page

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Remember What It Takes To Be Removed from the WELS Pastoral List

This has been used to get rid of WELS pastors:

  • Criticizing reliance on AAL.
  • Questioning the use of the NIV.
  • Opposing the doctrine of the Church Growth Movement. 
  • Disagreeing with an article written by a Daddy Warbucks.
  • Tagging a public sidewalk, even though restitution was made immediately.
  • Writing a letter about the error of "making disciples."

The following events or reasons did not keep someone from receiving another call, being promoted, or being put on the CRM list.

  1. Murdering or helping to murder his wife.
  2. Molesting girls in the congregation while serving as DP for two decades.
  3. Teaching the Joy of Sex to minors in prep school.
  4. Embezzlement from the congregation, school, or synod.
  5. False doctrine.
  6. Adultery.
  7. Abandoning his wife and five children to run off - punished with an ELS call.
  8. Attending Fuller Seminary and lying about it.
  9. Obstruction of justice in a felony investigation.
  10. DUI conviction.
  11. Plagiarizing false doctrine. 
  12. Copying Groeschel's sermons and graphics, deceiving people about the source, even though Groeschel himself advises against such dishonesty.
