I'd suggest doing all you can possibly do to put as much distance between yourself and that wacko Greg Jackson as humanly possible. [GJ - Editor McCain repeats himself.]
I urged Pastor Rydecki to do so, but he remained very silent, which I found more than a bit disturbing. [GJ - Very silent? Is that more silent than silent?]
It's one thing to stand up for what you think is truth, but quite another sort of total foolishness to allow your church body to be trashed in such reckless, and frankly, psychotic fashion, by Jackson, a man who is championing "your cause" as he sees it. [GJ - Whose mental health was challenged by a moderate, irenic discussion blog? McCain's.]
Your ad hominem attack and personal insult against Greg Jackson is irrelevant, unchristian and out of place, especially here where we have made it clear that such personal attacks are unwelcome.
You may consider yourself banned from making further comments on Intrepid Lutherans.
Some folks feel the need to be the resident smart aleck. They always have to get the last word in and enjoy lording themselves over others. It reminds me of the phrase "seagull manager". It refers to one who swoops in, makes a lot of noise and leaves behind a big mess for others to clean up.
Adolph Hoenecke has left a new comment on your post "Paul McCain Banned from Another Website - Three So...":
Does anyone know the record for number of blogs from which one individual has been banned?
GJ - Doubtless being banned from four (4) is an enviable record - if someone wants to envy No Call Paul.
Mr. Jackson is a sad and pathetic character. I believe he suffers from some serious emotional conditions about which we can only but feel a lot of pity.
I've learned over the years that personalities like Mr. Jackson thrive on attention, and so desperate and hungry for it that they will do anything they possibly can to be noticed, recognized and given the kind of respect they think they deserve.
Mr. Jackson has moved from Lutheran church to Lutheran church, bouncing from one to another and another and then yet another.
He is now reduced to a fake house/bedroom church and feels a need to lash out and any all real/imagined errors.
His anger and bittnerness oozes out of his every post.
The only thing to do with people like Mr. Jackson is forgive them, and commend them to God's grace and then simply ignore them.
By the way, at its latest convention The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod specifically named and commended "Concordia :The Lutheran Confessions" and recommended it be the edition of the Lutheran Confessions read and studied by the congregations and members of the Synod.

Rev. McCain, you recommend ignoring people like Pastor Jackson as you characterize him but yet you don't do it yourself.
I take issue with your false claim that Bethany Lutheran is not a church, that those who have called Pastor Jackson to be their Public Minister of the Word are not able to have done so and neither was it effective.
Also, what is the error in lashing out, exposing, real errors? To condemn such appropriate actions to the benefit of anyone who will listen and apply the Word and Confessions is to expose yourself. For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
