The Abuse of Church Discipline
Are 9Marks churches divisive? Dale says “YES!” and provides his “Top Ten List” of their “Dividic Kingdom”
by Velour/Mtn Shepherdess
Note: 9/17/16 This 9Marks article is about my Amazon review of my abusive former church Grace Bible Fellowship of Silicon Valley, a 9 Marks church. I didn’t know at the time I joined GBFSV that Mark Dever had simply rolled out the 1970’s abusive heavy-Shepherding Movement’s tactics complete with excommunications and shunnings. Now that the damage is being done to lives across the nation and in countries around the world, 9 Marks is distancing themselves from the abuses even though they’ve advocated it. I’m, by the way, a woman not a man is the only additional comment I have to make.
“Here are fifteen marks that will keep you from being a “9Marxist,” that is, a church leader who abuses their authority.”
