Don’t Be a 9Marxist!

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, founder of the 9Marks of a [un]Healthy Church in Washington, D.C. and pastor at Capitol Hill Baptist Church there, had simply rolled out the 1970’s abusive heavy-Shepherding Movement’s tactics complete with excommunications and shunnings. The Florida Founders of the Shepherding Movement have apologized and repented for its abuses, controlling of Christians’ lives, lack of boundaries, and spiritual abuse.

Now that the damage is being done by Mark Dever’s 9Marks 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.”
