The Weeflea is the title of the blog of David Robertson, the minister of St. Peter’s Free Church of Scotland in Dundee (since 1992) and was formerly Moderator of the Free Church of Scotland between 2015-2016.
St. Peter’s is the historic church of Robert Murray McCheyne.
In 2016, he wrote a post about Stephen Green of Christian Voice. The post was entitled, “The blasphemy of Christian Voice and an apology to Tom Daley.” (link is below but read my observations about Stephen Green first.)
Stephen Green takes an uncompromising and hardline stand against homosexuality (I commend him for that) and Tom Daley is an Olympic diver and a homosexual, and some woman somewhere is carrying a baby for him and his boyfriend so that that evil pair (trio when the woman is included) can pretend to be a “family.”
I fear for the baby who will be handed over to those deviants!
Rev. David Robertson took exception to Stephen’s anti-homosexual rhetoric and his post is below.
The Blasphemy of Christian Voice and an Apology to Tom Daley
Mr. Robertson is liberal and non-judgemental (in my opinion) except when it comes to people like Stephen Green and others who take a courageous and uncompromising stand against sodomy. Note part of a comment below about Stephen Green entitled “What the Green reaction tells us about the UK Church,” made by Mr.Robertson on his own blog.
“Someone who sets himself up as Christian voice, has to ensure that his private life is as holy as his public life!”
In his diatribe against Stephen Green, Mr. Robertson references the fact that Mr. Green was accused of domestic violence by his first wife and he gives a link to a newspaper article about this matter.
I don’t know if Mr. Green is guilty or innocent but, if guilty, I have no difficulty or hesitation in condemning him.
However I have never heard of him going on trial or being imprisoned for these alleged offences.
The point I wish to make here is the selective nature of Rev. Robertson’s condemnation.
He condemns Mr. Green for his anti-homosexual remarks but has no condemnation for two other “leading lights” in the evangelical Christian world, one deceased and one living.
The late Rev. Iain D Campbell was a Gospel minister at Point Free Church on the isle of Lewis in Scotland. He took his own life in January last year.
It was then revealed that he had been a wicked adulterer for years!
Remember what Rev. Robertson said about Stephen Green? It bears repeating.
“Someone who sets himself up as Christian Voice has to ensure that his private life is as holy as his public life.”
The adulterous “Pastor” Campbell certainly purported to be a “Christian voice” to his congregation (which included some of his scarlet women!)
Read Rev. Robertson’s softly-softly, non-judgemental piece on his duplicitous friend.
Tragedy in Lewis – A Pastoral Response
My comment on Robertson’s fluffy piece is below and his pathetic response then follows. He wrote a similar piece on Premier Christianity about the moral scandal that recently engulfed slippery Ravi Zacharias, who, in addition to the alleged immorality has been found out for exaggerating his academic credentials.
(Mrs. White’s comment) “I have left a comment on your post about Ravi Zacharias on Premier Christianity. I hope you will read it. Your post about Zacharias and your post on your own blog about Iain D Campbell are similar and liberal and non-judgemental. It is because of men like Campbell and Zacharias that atheists have no interest in Christianity and they think that Christians are hypocrites. I am a Bible-believing Christian and I am weary of Christians who will not roundly condemn men like Zacharias and the adulterous “Pastor” Iain D Campbell and his scarlet women. Those wicked adulteresses should have been put out of the Church in disgrace. Instead they got a slap on the wrist. I am judgemental because the Bible is judgemental and I can judge as long as I am not guilty of the sin I condemn in others. Quit you like men you softly-softly, non-judgemental Ministers and condemn the wicked hypocrites among us who live double lives, that others may fear and watch their conduct accordingly.”(comment ends)
(David Robertson said) “It is not because of men like Campbell and Zacharias that atheists have no interest in Christianity. I have never met an atheist yet for whom that is the case. They have no interest in Christianity because they are dead in sins and trespasses and they are enemies of God! If you are a bible believing Christian then you should act like one and believe what the bible says about not entertaining an accusation against an elder without two or three real witnesses – and the process for church discipline that Christ puts forth in Matthew 18. You seem to think that you have the right to act as judge and jury on the basis of gossip. That is hardly the action of a bible believing Christian. I would suggest that you should take the beam out of your own eye before you take the speck out of others. I have no qualms in being a judgemental minister and telling you that in my judgement it is you who sounds like the wicked hypocrite! “(comment ends)
(Mrs. White’s comment) “Mr.Robertson, you refuse to judge and denounce Ravi Zacharias just as you refused to judge and denounce the late Iain D Campbell who was guilty of the most disgusting sexual sin. The Bible describes sexual sin as wicked and filthy and it is not “judging” to call sin what the Bible says it is. Stop this softly-softly, non-judgemental nonsense at once. I am a Bible-believing Christian and I am weary of the silence and/or softly-softly attitude to morally bankrupt professing Christians from people like you. Atheists and liberals mock Christianity when they hear of yet another hypocritical Christian falling. The Bible warns those who give the enemies of the LORD cause to blaspheme. I would recriminalise adultery if I had the power. That would put a stop to most of the wickedness in the “Christian” camp.” (comment ends)
It appears that Rev. David Robertson reserves the right to judge those he dislikes or disagrees with but when it comes to his friends, he refuses to judge.
Memo to Mr. Robertson – Your friends, Campbell and Zacharias were duty bound to ensure that their private lives were as holy as their public lives.
In conclusion, it must be noted that Mr. Robertson called on Stephen Green to repent but not a word from Robertson about the need for homosexual Tom Daley to repent.
Far from it. Mr. Robertson apologised to Daley in case he was offended by Stephen Green’s remarks!
How pathetic, but no surprise because Rev. Robertson is very concerned that homosexuals not think him homophobic!
To convince them that he is not homophobic, he had an article in Christian Today on 16th October, 2014 entitled, “I’m not homophobic says Free Church of Scotland’s David Robertson.”
I wonder if Sinclair Ferguson, that well-known preacher and Robertson’s assistant minister at St. Peter’s Free Church of Scotland shares his liberal views.
Now there’s a question to leave hanging in the air!
