Dr. Tony Evans Relinquishes Duties Due to Personal 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.

Carpenter’s latest song, “Please Please Please” discusses the devil being inside of her boyfriend.

Here’s Something to Celebrate During Pride Month

Our culture’s celebration of Pride Month has become an opportunity to attack Christianity, saying it is a religion of hate. To say authentic Christians hate or fear homosexuals or the transgender community demonstrates a gross misunderstanding of our faith.

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

Speaking the Truth in Love

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