David Platt/MBC Leadership mischaracterizes church members who disagree with his Leadership labeling them as malicious, liars and deceitful.
David Platt/MBC Leadership has employed a smear, fear and shame campaign which is a form of slander (Col 3:8); a behavior prohibited in the Bible. Here are examples of issues used to smear those voting NO.
a. One anonymous email that claimed that MBC planned to sell the church building to a Muslim group and give a large portion of the proceeds to the SBC.
b. Smeared MBC members by using an out of context comment made by a non-MBC member and labeling ALL as racist (David Platt’s racist smear).
c. Smeared MBC members by implying that the MBC member list was being maliciously exploited to compromise and harm members by making personal data public. (David Platt’s slander)
