CAPSTONE REPORT: Discovery confirms Pastor David Platt lied all along to McLean Bible Church (12/18/23)


Please take the time to visit:

It took from 1961 to 2016 for attendance to reach 13,500+, but only 4 years (under David Platt’s leadership) for the attendance to drop to under 4,000.

After destroying a thriving church, the Platt-ERA administration faced two (2) lawsuits in Fairfax County Circuit Court over rigged elections, disregarding the church constitution, mismanagement of donations, and gross mistreatment of church members. The first lawsuit is ongoing, while the second achieved discovery which revealed the lies and deception that David Platt and the Elders perpetrated on the members of McLean Bible Church.

  • Pictures of empty seats and parking lots tell the story of the disastrous collapse in attendance and enthusiasm under the Platt and SBC-era Administration
  • Members complain of being abused, threatened, intimidated, bullied, slandered, and pressured to leave
  • Suspicions of financial corruption, dirty dealings, and mismanagement continue to linger
  • According the chairman of the MBC Elder Board, as of 3/2023 the church has spent 750,000 dollars of church donations to pay lawyers that oppose those wanting to restore McLean Bible’s tradition of fair elections, financial transparency, fair opportunity to voice dissent, and due process
  • Could the final bill for these attorneys reach 1 million, all at the expense of the MBC congregation?
  • Open invitations for MBC leadership to appear publicly in a recorded forum to respond to complaints have gone unanswered.
