Web Hosting Service Caves To Purpose Driven Pressure

Pastor Ken Silva of Apprising Ministries has advised that Apprising Ministries is "officially offline", due to the pressure Purpose Driven Apologist Richard Abanes exerted on Apprising Ministries web hosting company IPower.

It is a sad day for Christians on the 'Net and the First Amendment. No doubt it's the sign of things to come.

As America's Pastor, Rick Warren says "fundamentalism is the enemy of the 21st century."

Well, looks like the persecution has entered cyberspace at the hands of the religious elite.

Congratulations Mr. Abanes. You should be real proud of yourself...right along side of pastors who have kicked out and driven out hundreds purpose driven resisters and their families in churches across the world.

  1. In this issue we are in agreement.

  2. Rick,

    Thanks for taking the time to stop by.


  3. This is truly an outrageous act of villiany!

    Jesus said it and it bears repeating (Matthew 7:15 - 20):

    "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit. A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will know them by their fruits.

    Even if Richard Abanes had a leg to stand on, by this heavy-handed act of cowardice and oppression, he has just shown his true unregenerate nature.

  4. This Open Letter to Steve Camp outlines my initial thoughts/intentions/motivation for writing to Ken Silva's ISP. It also covers various issues relating to the "Ken Silva vs. Richard Abanes" controversy, including:

    1. Bible Study notes on key passages being discussed,
    2. the actual contents of my email to Silva's ISP,
    3. observations about the current state of the church,
    4. an indictment of today's so-called Online Discernment Ministries, and
    5. documentation of Ken Silva’s violation of federal copyright/privacy laws, and other issues.

    The open letter should answer most questions and addressed the widely-read article by Steve Camp titled "Battles in the Blogsphere."

    This is my final word on the issue. Those who have ears to hear, and eyes to see, will both hear and see the truth.
