Tony Evans Stepping Down From Pastoral Duties ‘Due to Sin’

In a shocking statement posted to the Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship website, Dr. Tony Evan, senior pastor of the church, has announced that he is stepping away from all pastoral duties and is “submitting to a healing and restoration process established by the elders.”

The pastor, author and syndicated radio host does not list a specific reason for his decision, other than he “fell short” of the standard expected of a Christian leader.

The foundation of our ministry has always been our commitment to the Word of God as the absolute supreme
standard of truth to which we are to conform our lives. When we fall short of that standard due to sin, we are
required to repent and restore our relationship with God. A number of years ago, I fell short of that standard.
I am, therefore, required to apply the same biblical standard of repentance and restoration to myself that I
have applied to others. I have shared this with my wife, my children and our church elders, and they have
lovingly placed their arms of grace around me. While I have committed no crime, I did not use righteous
judgment in my actions. In light of this, I am stepping away from my pastoral duties and am submitting to a
healing and restoration process established by the elders. This will afford me a needed time of spiritual
recovery and healing.

During Pride Month, Here’s Something to Celebrate

The celebration of Pride Month in our culture has become an opportunity to attack Christianity and say that it is a religion of hate. To say that authentic Christians hate or fear homosexuals or the transgender community demonstrates a gross misunderstanding of Christianity. 

One of the marks of true Christianity is the ability to relate to people on their level and to show genuine love and concern for them.

Speaking the Truth in Love

I have nothing but compassion for anyone who is trapped in sexual sin. The Bible is crystal-clear on sexual sin, including homosexuality. Christians who strongly believe that the Bible reveals God’s will regarding sexual behavior also strongly believe in God’s love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. To “confront in love” simply comes from a desire to honor God by loving and caring for others.

Every year, a prestigious and embarrassing award goes to a political leader who tells the biggest “whopper.” Guess who may be leading the pack to secure the prize?

The current inner circle and power brokers most influential in Joe Biden‘s life are led by none other than his 73-year-old wife (who somehow looks 40). Watch a 30-second clip of her on ”The View” as she lets loose with what many believe will be the lie of ’24.

The classic TV show “Dragnet” focused on an investigative detective named Joe Friday. His classic line was always the same: “Just the facts, ma’am. Just the facts.”
