There is such a thing as ‘The Good Ole Boy’s Club’ in ‘Christian’ ministries. The following article is too long for here but is a must read as it shows exactly how the Good Ole Boy’s Club works.
‘On May 30, 2018, Paige Patterson was terminated from his position as President of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary for, “the handling of an allegation of sexual abuse against a student during Dr. Paige Patterson’s presidency at another institution and resulting issues connected with statements to the Board of Trustees that are inconsistent with SWBT’s biblically informed core values.” (Source)
While there were undoubtedly many good friends serving on the SWBTS’s Board of Trustees, the fact that they were able to set aside their friendship with Patterson and do the right thing speaks to the integrity of the members of the Board of Trustees.
Now, two years later, a similar situation has arisen at Cedarville University primarily involving three proteges of Paige Patterson; Anthony Moore, recently terminated from Cedarville University for past incidents of paraphilia, Thomas White, the President of Cedarville University, and Jason Duesing, a member of the Cedarville University Board of Trustees.
Anthony Moore (whom Paige Patterson called “my sweet son, Anthony” in a foot-washing ceremony which took place at a chapel service at SWBTS) was terminated from The Village Church when a subordinate reported discovering multiple videos taken of him while showering at Anthony Moore’s home.
Thomas White was a long-time assistant of Paige Patterson, working at both Southeastern and Southwestern Seminaries. White is currently on administrative leave from his position as President of Cedarville University while his involvement with the Anthony Moore hiring is being investigated.’ http://thewartburgwatch.com/2020/06/18/jason-duesing-should-recuse-himself-from-thomas-white-investigation/
As I said in the beginning of this blog the whole article should be read to see how the Good Ole Boy’s Club operates. Those within the club are a protected species and are moved from one place to another without any questions being asked.
This is not the ministry that God has outlined for us in His Word.
