Downloading @willowcreekcc's Saturday livestream so I can listen at 4X playback speed, as youtube's 2X playback speed no longer fast enough for me.

Like swallowing the poison as frickin' fast as possible.
@WillowCreekCC 2/ "It just hit me like a ton of bricks. I just started to weep."

~James Paek, doing DARVO live on the mainstage @willowcreekcc Saturday evening.
@WillowCreekCC 3/ I wonder how much Willow pays Mr. James Paek. However much it is, it's with extreme obviousness not enough, and nothing compared to the $2.5million the payed Predator Bill "Weinstein" Hybels in 2019.

1/ Opening words from the @willowcreekcc Saturday evening service South Barrington:

"Good evening everyone. It's been another tough week here at Willow."

"Worship is not distracting ourselves nor escapism"

It seems appropriate the opening song is from @hillsongworship
@WillowCreekCC @hillsongworship 2/ To be clear, the leader of @hillsong is currently under police investigation for covering up child sexual abuse perpetrated by his pastor father.

I confess these @willowcreekcc vocalists, musicians, producers, are consummate professionals. Absolutely top-notch performance.
@WillowCreekCC @hillsongworship @Hillsong 3/ Words from @mattlundgren's prayer: "forgiveness, surrender, every good and perfect gift, peace, comfort, healing, wisdom, mercy, forgiveness, grace, direction, open eyes, open ears, open ears, open hearts."

"There are some germs going around--don't shake anyone's hand."

1/ "Only limited studies have been done concerning adultery among Christians. But initial findings have been shocking."

~Bill Hybels, "Christians in a Sex-Crazed Culture", 1989, at least 4 years into his sexual assault & harassment of multiple parishioners and employees
2/ " 'The Myth of the Greener Grass' answered many of the questions I had been struggling to answer on the subject of adultery: What causes affairs?"

~Bill Hybels, "Christians in a Sex-Crazed Culture", 1989
3/ "In fact in the Old Testament, under Mosaic Law, anyone caught in adultery received the death penalty."

~Bill Hybels, "Christians in a Sex-Crazed Culture", 1989
