Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

5:25 PM - Billy Graham Grandson's Trail of Destruction in the Church

After taking over the pastorate at D.James Kennedy's church he split the megachurch in two with his emerging churchiness and later had an affair while pastor. He accused his wife of cheating first.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The grandson of evangelist Billy Graham resigned last week from his role as pastor of a Florida megachurch after admitting to being involved in an inappropriate relationship.

Tullian Tchividjian, 42, the son of Virginia Graham, took over the pulpit of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in 2009 following the passing of founder D. James Kennedy. However, the selection divided the congregation, as some approved and others disapproved of his leadership. Several months after he accepted the job, Kennedy's daughter and others began calling for his removal.

When a vote was taken over the matter and it was decided to keep Tchividjian as pastor, some left the church and started their own congregation.

As an author, Tchividjian wrote against what he saw as "spiritual  performancism" and legalism in the Church, outlining his beliefs in the  hyper-grace book "One Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted  World."


Tchividjian’s church had been in deep struggles for a long time, there had been actions in that church to have him removed, those parties had been removed from the church (he nudged out the moral conservatives), he had ongoing and severe conflicts with the other Pastors to which he had some accountability (well known and respected Pastors), and had several theological positions that seemed confused at the very least.

As pastor at Coral Ridge, he displeased many longtime members by tossing aside traditional services with the church’s huge pipe organ in favor of less formal preaching and contemporary music. Dissident members quit to form their own church. In 2009, with complaints growing, the church held a vote on whether to fire him, in which he prevailed with two-thirds of the balloting.
