My Response To Don Francisco

Posted on July 6, 2015 - Last updated on July 9, 2015

I want to start out this article by sharing the following link: Contemporary Christian Music Pioneer Don Francisco departs from biblical inerrancy.

I am going to share my response to Don Francisco's Facebook post shown in the above article for two reasons. The first reason is that some of the people who have already respectfully responded to Don's Facebook comments here have been blocked for it, and that means the same thing is likely to happen to me. The second reason is because I have recommend Don Francisco on this site in the past, and I need to let people know why I can no longer recommend him unless he realizes his error and stops blocking people for disagreeing with him. That is an immature, unreasonable and cowardly response to people who are simply concerned. Here is my response to his Facebook comments shown in the above article....

Jesus Christ is our one sure foundation, but you are rejecting Him if you reject any part of His word. It is what I believe because it is what I have been taught by the Lord Himself. And those who reject biblical inerrancy can be just as controlling as those who misuse the Bible, if not more so. Don Francisco is talented, but I get the impression that he is lead by his emotions. A friend that I had who is a huge Don Francisco fan also started rejecting biblical inerrancy recently, and she also started to buy into the doctrine of Annihilationism around the same time. Here is an article I wrote in response: http://jdlarsenmn.tripod.com/inerrancy.htm.

July 9, 2015 update: Toward the end of the following podcast, Amy Spreeman also talked about how Don Francisco's wife Wendy has been swearing at Christians who are disagreeing with them, and calling them horrible names: News, Views and Pews: Why Christians Need to be Aware. Click the play button on that page to listen to the show.

I am sharing this update to let people know why I can not recommend trying to reason with Don and Wendy any longer. It looks like they have both hardened themselves against correction, and that is a mindset that I have come across over and over again. I believe it is time to shake off the dust from our feet and move on to those who are open to correction.
