Disgraced muti-adulterer, Tullian Tchividjian, is officially starting a new “church” in Florida, after having been defrocked by his Presbytery and disciplined by multiple churches.
We last reported that Tchividjian was going to start a new church back in June, in the post entitled, Tullian Tchividjian is Planting a New Church.
We first warned you that Tchividjian was getting back into the pulpit in November of 2018, as undiscerning, naive, and foolish-minded churches were willing to set aside all Biblical standards in order to host an evangelical celebrity. Like disgraced drunkard pastor Perry Noble, Tchividjian has been busy turning his ministry disqualifications into a cottage industry. Attacking the Christian church as “elitists” and “judgmental,” these fallen ministers are capitalizing on their ungodliness to attract unsanctified followers.
According to the Palm Beach Post, Pulpit & Pen’s reporting was spot-on, as usual. That publication gave the details about Tchividjian’s congregation, which they say numbers somewhere between 60 and 80 people.
The Palm Beach Post refers to the church as, “a judgment-free congregation.” Around 500 people had signed on to a master list of church supporters as of late July.
Stacie Tchividjian, Tullian’s mistress-turned-wife, said, “So instead of being a church that’s exclusive where you’re looking for people that are just like you … The Sanctuary is a church that welcomes and embraces and wants diversity and we celebrate that. And we don’t weigh and measure our sins against each other.”
Tchividjian said, “Some people think that I should just shut up and crawl in a cave and never come out because I’m not qualified to be leading spiritually in any way because of everything that I went through and everything that I did. Other people champion it because they go, ‘It’s about time that churches are led by people who know what it feels like to, you know, fall on their face and be in the gutter.’’
Tchividjian seemed to have no thought or care about what the Bible says about the qualification for ministers.
