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.

Jonathan Cahn: Ancient Entities and the Coming of the Ezekiel Prophecy

Have we started to see the Ezekiel prophecy come to pass?

In his latest prophetic message, Jonathan Cahn unlocks how we are seeing the beginning of the Ezekiel prophecy come to pass in our world today.

“Raisi was called ‘The Butcher,’” Cahn says. “He was a feared man, a hated man. He was responsible for the brutal repressing of Iranian dissidence. He was a prominent judge on the Iranian death commission. He sentenced and called for the execution without trial [for] thousands of innocent Iranians to go to their death.”

Pray for Elon Musk: X Goes Dark, Allows Pornography

This is the time that believers should be praying for Elon Musk.

Musk is one of the most powerful people in the world, but with that great influence also comes great responsibility.

Right now, one of the fatal flaws he’s made is allowing X to become an X-rated platform by allowing pornography onto the site.
