Hybels steps down from Willow Creek following allegations of misconduct
Forty-two years after founding one of the nation’s most influential evangelical megachurches, the Rev. Bill Hybels told his congregation Tuesday night that he would step down from the helm of Willow Creek Community Church six months ahead of schedule.

His departure comes less than a month after a Chicago Tribune investigation disclosed that Hybels had been the subject of inquiries by church leaders into claims that he ran afoul of church teachings by engaging in inappropriate behavior with women in his congregation — including employees — allegedly spanning decades. The inquiries had cleared Hybels. ...

Thanks for the video. I watched the whole thing this afternoon. It is so easy to be swept away by worldly thinking as this video shows. I will continue to pastor small churches because I will never stop preaching the Gospel.

Can't have grace without holiness. The church focuses too much on grace but never talks about why we need that grace.Just like how the church always talks about the Gospel (at least their version), but never talks about the bad news that points a sinner to that Gospel.

The more I read of the allegations against Bill Hybels the more concerned I become. It does appear the church elders were somewhat complicit in the continuance of the abuse. There is also the concern that he isn't showing contrition or repentance for his behavior.

I do not always agree with Jim Lincoln, but he has picked up some good sources on this matter.

Between them, Bill Hybels of Willow Creek and Rock Warren of Saddleback have caused more chaos to the professing evangelical church than most other people, including even the prosperity gospellers.

Through them we have seen other movements like the Emerging Church, the mystical Contemplative Prayer, and even the so called "New Apostolic Reformation", which if course is not new, apostolic or a reformation, come out after them!

Now no doubt, the former Pastor Bill Hybells can now, no doubt, spend more time supporting his wife Lynne, in her anti-Israel and pro-Christian Palestinian Replacement Theology ministry and teaching for which she has become famous.

John MacArthur wrote:
... Campolo himself has missed the point. He is actually arguing that church leaders should follow the culture and study marketing techniques rather than theology. And he suggests this would be a good thing. He writes:

" It was a marketing degree, not an M. Div., that Bill Hybels had when he launched the tiny fellowship that would one day be Willow Creek Community Church. It’s not that Hybels is a theological lightweight, [but he’s “brilliantly relevant”]—and the relevance comes not from giftedness or theological discernment, but from thoughtfully studying his congregation. As any good marketer would, Hybels deliberately surveys his people with questionnaires in order to determine what they worry about, what their needs are, what’s important to them. . . . Then he schedules what subjects he will preach on in the coming year, and circulates the schedule to those on his team responsible for music and drama in the services...."

What is a cult of personality?

It’s when a person becomes the center of attention rather than Christ; an individual looms larger than a mission; a figure is given more status than the organization itself....
--http://tinyurl.com/y6wccgv2 (The Cult of Personality)

Unfortunately, I was thinking almost all the time a board of Elders have to be in cahoots pastor that pushes this cult mentality

One has to wonder if the pastor and his cohorts the elders are living up to the following verses!

Titus 1
5 For this reason I left you in Crete, that you might set in order what remains, and appoint elders in every city as I directed you,
6 namely, if any man be above reproach, the husband of one wife, having children who believe, not accused of dissipation or rebellion.
7 For the overseer must be above reproach as God's steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of sordid gain,
8 but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self-controlled,
9 holding fast the faithful word which is in acordance with the teaching, that he may be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict. ---NASB
