Why are comments disappearing under posts on the 9Marks website?
9/26/16. Note: This is about my former church Grace Bible Fellowship of Silicon Valley and the authoritarian 9 Marks practices that they follow. I wrote a 1-star review on Amazon about Mark Dever’s 9 Marks of a Healthy Church and described the implementation of the recommended practices as being “like the Salem Witch Trials”. I stand by every word. Jonthan Leeman at 9 Marks wrote an article about my 1-star Amazon review. More than 30 comments were made to the article, logical and critical of the 9 Marks system overall. Todd Wilhlem, in United Arab Emirates (an American who works/lives there and had dealings with an abusive 9 Marks church as well) wrote about the article. 9 Marks subsequently scrubbed the internet of all comments which a webmaster had to retrieve. Todd Wilhelm’s latest article is about the scrubbing of the internet by 9 Marks and of comments. There is no adult discourse, or so it seems, with 9 Marks. If their ideas will “float” (i.e. are viable) why do they shut down critiques? – Velour/MtnShepherdess
