NAZNET DAVE MCCLUNG IS IRRESPONSIBLE AS ‘CHRISTIAN’
J. Grant Swank, Jr.
NazNet Founder Dave McClung is irresponsible as a biblical Christian for permitting staffers who decry the Word of God as infallible. Question: Is McClung truly a Christian in light of the theological aberrations he is broadcasting via NazNet?

Moderators Hans Deventer and Scott Cundiff are prime promoters of heresies.
Yet McClung continues to repeat that NazNet is a “friend” to the Church of the Nazarene. He is not. He is a major enemy to the holiness denomination.
McClung however has held official positions at the Nazarene headquarters and elsewhere. In other words, he had hobnobbed with those in ecclesiastical power—both past and present.
That means that the authoritative personages appear reluctant to discipline McClung for his NazNet continues the heresy push. These authorities have been aptly informed of McClung’s endangerment to the church.
NazNet promotes the Bible as not divine revelation. Deventer blatantly states that he does not believe the Bible. Cundiff has come out for the Scriptures as being just another book.

Deventer and Cundiff repeatedly accent their pet anti-Bible theme.
How does McClung reconcile these horrific theses with being a Christian let alone friendly to the Church of the Nazarene?

Deventer also pushes his belief that God accepts all souls into heaven—universal salvation. That means that no soul is in hell. In fact, Deventer does not believe in hell. All this is on NazNet as “friend” to biblical believers.

Then Deventer comes up with an “intermediate state” after death. McClung knows that is Roman Catholic teaching; it is not evangelical, holiness belief. Yet McClung permits that blasphemy to stay on NazNet. Why?
Again, it appears that McClung is so webbed by Nazarene politics that he can allow anything he wants. That is why it makes one suspicious that McClung is trying to create a “church” in competition to the Church of the Nazarene. His “church” exists on the Internet.

Further, Deventer has this fetish about infant baptism being enveloped globally by the Church of the Nazarene. Nowhere in the Bible is an infant baptized; however, “high church” Deventer and Cundiff want it. Forget the Bible, just state your own manufactured doctrine as truth and you’re in.

Then there is former Moderator Chaplain Barbara Moulton who states she will not marry same-gender duos. However, she will never take a biblical public stand on the issue. In other words, she will keep her Christian witness “in the closet.”

Moreover, NazNet is enamored by the emerging church. That is quite the new find for NazNet moderators, particularly Cundiff.

The Bible has errors throughout it.
There is no eternal hell.
All souls go to heaven.
Infant baptism should be practiced worldwide.
A chaplain will not publicly defend God’s position on homosexual practice.
The Church of the Nazarene is old-stuff and needs a liberal release.
McClung creates a “church” on site, same being a competitor to the Church of the Nazarene.
The emerging church flimflam is where it is at for worshipers’ futures.
All the above is boldly stated on the McClung site. There is his photo. There is a group photo of his site pals. And there are the forums in place to proclaim heresies.
Though the General Superintendents have been informed of all this detail, seemingly they have no authority by which to expunge from McClung’s Internet “church” these declarations in direct opposition to the Nazarene heritage.
McClung will answer at the Judgment Seat of Christ for fomenting anti-God beliefs and leading many posters astray with his cute image, flip style, and sweet way of luring especially the young into his web.
Apparently McClung’s ego is large enough in his Pied Piper play at the moment that he really does not care about a final accountability. I frankly do not believe that he, Deventer, Cundiff, and Moulton believe in the Judgment Seat of Christ.
FOOTNOTE: JUDGMENT DAY
It is appointed unto men once to die, but after that the judgment.
Matthew 7:21-23: the words of Christ:
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Matthew 12:36-37: the words of Christ:
But I say unto you that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
God who will render to every man according to his deed: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honor and immorality, eternal life; But unto them that are contentious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honor and peace to every man that worked good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God.
For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
I Corinthians 4:5:
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsel of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
II Corinthians 5:10:
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Be sure your sin will find you out.
