Christian Historian Says He Was Evicted from First Baptist Church of Jacksonville Conference Over Ravi Zacharias
By Warren Throckmorton

Historian and former Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary archivist Jim Lutzweiler attended the How Should We Then Pastor Conference for pastors held January 25-28 at First Baptist Church of Jacksonville, FL hoping to find out more about Ravi Zacharias. Zacharias received the Lindsay Award, an annual award given by the church. Lutzweiler attended a Q&A session the afternoon before Zacharias was slated to get his award (Jan. 28).

Lutzweiler told me he wanted to ask lead pastor Mac Brunson, “In this conference about how to pastor, how did you as a pastor deal with the question of Ravi’s phony credentials, sexting, and suicide email, and still retain him on the program?”

I too would like to know the answer to that question. Zacharias has numerous loose ends remaining but has gone quiet since his ministry issued incomplete statements about credentialing issues several weeks ago.

I Will Call Security
According to Lutzweiler, he attended a Q&A session where he intended to ask lead pastor Mac Brunson his question. However, he said Brunson’s son, Trey, got to him before the microphone did. Lutzweiler quoted Brunson as saying, “No, do not ask the question. If you do, I will call security.” Lutzweiler said he complied with that request.

After the Q&A, Lutzweiler said he went to the auditorium for the meeting during which Ravi Zacharias was to get an award. He told me he looked for a good seat:
I got one four rows back. Suddenly a security guard came to my seat and asked me to follow him. I did. When we got to the foyer, he said, ‘We want to ask you to leave. We understand you want to create a scene.’ I said, ‘What? I am not hear to create a scene, I just came to hear Ravi. In fact, I pointedly did NOT create a scene across the street during a Q&A when Trey asked me not to ask a question about Ravi. I politely consented to his request.’ I could quickly tell this made no difference, that they had a mandate to get me out of there without compromise (like sitting in the balcony 200 feet-or-so away from the platform). There were two other pistol-bearing guards right there, ready to haul me away.

I sent emails and a tweet to First Baptist Church of Jacksonville and Trey Brunson and asked for their side of this story. I received no response.

Jim Lutzweiler is a Baptist and wanted to raise issues which would no doubt have been inconvenient and uncomfortable but given the information available and recent media coverage were fair to raise. In particular, Lutzweiler wanted to know how Brunson evaluated the evidence which is very compelling. Apparently, if you follow this example, how pastors are supposed to pastor is to ignore such things; and have good security guards packing heat.

This is my first news report so please excuse all the mistakes and flaws. I have many technical issues to work out as I begin to produce this type of video.

Thrown Away Christians (TAC) is a ministry for those who have been hurt by the church and if you would like for your voice to be heard please contact me at [email protected]
This is not a ministry made out of bitterness for the church but from love for those who have been hurt as well as deep concern for the state of religion and churches as they exist today.

This is a ministry also concerned with injustices in the church as well as the legal system. Many of my videos and blogs will discuss injustice in the court room as well as the world, America, and the church.

This is a many faceted ministry which includes interviews, Bible Studies, blogs and vlogs, reviews of legal cases involving churches, and religious news reviews (of which this is the first).
TAC has been out of commission in the last year due to a severe illness in the family – but things a back on track now. This is a new ministry in its developing stages.

The truth behind cults is exposed at 13:28 and we immediately begin to see the false spirit behind host Doug Clark (and TBN) coming against the guest Walter Martin as a “crazy man” just because he criticises Copeland and Hagin 33:10 even mentioning Schuller and Norman Vincent Peale, live on TBN! Great –

This program gives a good picture of the two groups of Christians you will meet today: One group will thumbs up this video, the other group will thumbs down, these two groups are as different as light and darkness.

Hopefully, by watching this video, you will understand which one is light and which one is darkness.

Eventually Martin appears to convert Clark on the show. Allegedly both host and guest were never asked again to appear on TBN. The program was not re-aired the following Monday as it was scheduled. This is a marvelous exposure. A great example of the far reaching fruits of contending for the faith.

Very good concern shown by Walter Martin towards Christian students who end up losing their faith simply because they cannot defend their faith.

This is an all round expose of the problems we are now facing in the church

Circa. 1985
