Mistreatment of Members

25-year MBC member rebukes David Platt

Many MBC members were sent the below disciplinary letter with no specific sin(s) detailed, except that they disagreed with Leadership’s actions. No opportunity for questions has been provided at Congregational Meetings since June 30, 2021. Those who requested a “Point of Order” to ask questions were asked to leave the meetings. Some were escorted out by Security and/or the Police. Additionally, minutes (as MBC Constitution requires) have not been read during subject meetings.

Subject: Request for Personal Meeting – Matthew 18 Restoration
To: MBC Elders <MBCElders@mcleanbible.org>

Dear Brothers and Sisters –

The Board met last night to pray and to talk through the current status of our relationship with you, as evident in both your recent communications to us and in online activity that concerned members of our church continue to send to us. 

In Matthew 18, when relationships reach this point, we are called specifically to pursue the biblical process of restoration.  You are receiving this email because the entire Board believes this step is critical and must occur sooner rather than later. 

Please reply back to this email as soon as possible and let us know if you are willing and available to meet with us.  Until that occurs, we are pausing all other communications with you until the Matthew 18 process of restoration has been followed. 

We look forward to hearing from you soon.


The MBC Elders
