Controversy Archive

by Dale Partridge

Controversy is a real part of being a pastor and outspoken social media personality. Every now and then, I find myself as the subject of public scrunity or a cancel campaign. There are three usual suspects that contribute to this.

First, I may have done or said something stupid that requires sincere repentance. Second, I tackle culturally sensitive topics like homosexuality, transgenderism, feminism, or difficult church issues that can provoke strong criticism. Third, some people just delight in unearthing my past failures, hoping to tarnish my ministry.

However, I’ve learned that evenhanded individuals appreciate having both sides of a story before forming their conclusions. As Proverbs 18:17 wisely states, “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.” Additionally, Proverbs reminds us that protecting your reputation is a great value that surpasses the pursuit of material wealth (Prov. 22:1). With these principles in mind, I established this page to address specific issues that require clarification, explanation, or just a humble admission of wrongdoing.
