Chuck Missler Unplugged

More of Chuck Missler @ CCCM 3-14-97


This is a report of Chuck Missler's latest trip to Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa. Chuck Missler has continued to make accusations against leading Christians at his most recent (3-14-97) trip to Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa. After the last visit to CCCM (2-14-97), The Word For Today pulled Missler's tape due to reported "inaccuracies" in the tape. These were reported extensively here last month.


Off-Tape Comments


This month Chuck Missler decided his comments would be made "off-tape". This can be heard clearly here.


Abanes Coverup

Missler then proceeded to try and state that he had not said that Abanes is not a Christian, but rather that Abanes is not a Christian Conservative, but rather very much a Christian Liberal. Hear it.


Reminding Chuck of what he said, here is the quote where Missler calls prominent authors "ministers of Satan".


The Liberal Witchhunt

The statement by Missler attacking Richard Abanes is clearly wrong for several reasons. The first reason is that Abanes is not a liberal. Secondly, even if Abanes is a Christian Liberal politically, when did that become a crime? However, the fact is that Abanes is not a liberal. Richard may not be a card carrying member of the John Birch society, but he is far from being a liberal.


Additionally, it is ironic that Missler would attack Abanes for using "liberal sources" in his writings. Remember that it was Missler who defended his own use of liberal sources the prior month as well as his use of racist sources.

Shots at the Shooters


Missler then proceeded to use his pulpit before the assembled crowd to attack "self-appointed experts who are taking shots at the brethren". We can only assume (perhaps incorrectly) that Chuck Missler was making an oblique reference to us.


Faded Memories of Walter Martin


Missler made a claim about Walter Martin that was not true, ie, Walter always attacked doctrine and never attacked people. There are many cases where this is not true but it is beyond the scope of this paper to demonstrate that. If challenged we will do so.


Spinning Hanegraaff

As little as we like Hank Hanegraaff, we like it even less when someone misrepresents someone else. That is precisely what Missler then proceeded to do. Missler then said that Hanegraaff had apologized to him. Inside sources reveal that the apology was not for publishing the article in the Journal (the obvious inference that Missler was trying to make), but that the apology was not for considering the "personal attachments and feelings" that Missler had with respect to his relationship with CRI. Missler served on the CRI board at one time and felt that he had a continuing relationship with CRI. Hanegraaff had no such misapprehension. According to our reliable unnamed sources, Missler received an apology on that score and not on the article itself.


The Chuck Smith Aspect


This allows both sides to sidestep the most serious aspect of this controversy, which is the involvement of Pastor Chuck Smith. According to the CRI people, Smith was given a review of the article and approved it prior to publication. According to Missler, Smith never reviewed the article and asked Hanegraaff not to run the article (admittedly a strange reaction to an article that he had never read).


This settlement allows both sides to keep favor with and not publically embarass Chuck Smith into taking sides. Missler gets to save face with the home crowd.


Kiss and Make Up


Missler said that he regards the CRI aspect as being over. Perhaps that was before Hanegraaff heard the Missler unplugged tape.


Missler has since removed his page attacking Hanegraaff.

Bobgans Attacked


Perhaps the most serious charges followed next. Missler charged the Bobgan's with trying to:


  • Smear her (Nancy Missler's) name
  • Misprepresent her position
  • Hateful
  • Hurtful
  • Tragic


Decide for yourself


Here's a place where you can easily decide for yourself if Missler's charges against the Bobgans are accurate.



It would also be particularly instructive to do some research into the qualifications of both Nancy Missler as well as the Bobgans.


How do I contact them?


The Bobgans EMail address = phbobgan@silcom.com

The Missler's E-Mail addresses = http://www.khouse.org/email.html

Roll 'Em


After attacking the Bobgans; Missler then told the tape machine operator to turn on the machine.
