It appears this corner of the internet is getting more activity than usual. In fact, we had 7,000 new visitors last month alone.
I wish I could believe this is because of my individual charm and command of language. However, the stats suggest that it’s because of the vacuum of information documenting Sean Feucht’s antics. Of which there have been many more since we last spoke on the matter.
It appears that since Feucht’s vulture-like co-opting of the Black Lives Matter momentum in St. Louis, he’s returned to the West Coast to feign persecution by way of public health ordinance.
In less than 20 mins, @GavinNewsom is issuing an order to shut down all indoor church services across CA!— Sean Feucht (@seanfeucht) July 13, 2020
What a tyrannical move and drastic overreach of government into our religious liberties!!

I find his whole thing glaringly misguided.
He would just be a nuisance to be ignored if he weren’t so exceptionally harmful. His example of defiance is one of ignorance and it mobilizes the followers who subscribe to this entitled hyper-partisan brand of Christian faith.
They will elevate Sean Feucht as a mini-messiah leading them to deliverance from poorly-paid retail employees that are just trying to follow policy and the governors that would rather their constituents not die.
NBC reports that Sean Feucht was the frontman behind Sunday’s revival-like Let Us Worship event which drew approximately 5,000 people to the beach for a concert amidst a pandemic.
When asked about the man behind these gatherings, the Northern California musician and worship leader responded, “I’m just a nobody trying to tell everybody about somebody, and that’s Jesus. “
The thing is, I don’t buy it.
And I’m making that assumption from what I’ve heard from the other side of this horse’s mouth. Just take a look at his bio. It reeks of a man desperate to be seen.
And aren’t we all longing to be seen?
Perhaps not as the leader of a movement but by a parent, a lover, a friend, a holy God in the midst of our pain and struggle?
It depresses me to no end that Sean Feucht’s purpose behind these gatherings showcases an unwillingness to see or his neighbor.
California has reported 8,517 deaths as a result of Covid-19 and 477k confirmed cases impacting a disproportionate amount of Black and Latino communities.
Regardless of such, Feucht is taking his sideshow to Portland next month to “change the narrative” after weeks of protests and riots.
Do you see what he’s doing here? He’s essentially the worship-equivalent of an ambulance chaser.
Instead of assuring the Church that Christ is in the room with us when we pray or worship privately in our bedrooms, he’s boasting about the amount of bodies he got to come out to sing on the beach. He’s insisting his followers “hold the line” while the rest of humanity bleeds out.
We don’t have time for persecution theatrics.
The church of California WILL NOT be silenced. https://t.co/teaHwWfpOU— Sean Feucht (@seanfeucht) July 28, 2020
Unfortunately, provocateurs of Feucht’s variety believe there’s no such this as bad press. If they’re getting “persecuted” (lol) by bloggers or the mainstream media, they enter the fantasy of a martyr.
Instead, please join me in muting the man altogether.
