Ortberg and Mennonites

The average church going Mennonite probably won’t know this, but just over one year ago John Ortberg spoke to a record crowd of 550 pastors and lay leaders last February 25 at Fresno Pacific University’s Central Valley Ministry Forum. Sponsors were KDUV-FM, the Pacific District Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches, Growing Healthy Churches, and MB Biblical Seminary. (See Grace will fill the gap in people’s lives: Ortberg–2010 Ministry Forum attracts record crowd.)

Here is why some light needs to be shed on the subject:

Oh Mennonites, why do you sponsor such men? Why do you sell John Ortberg’s books on your websites and promote them to your members? Where is your discernment?
