Gail Riplinger and Suing Baptists

 Dr. Phil Stringer

A number of things have happened since Friday when I publicly challenged Gail Riplinger for threatening to sue Dr. and Mrs. Waite.

While studying our church website Gail Riplinger became aware of my wife’s battle with cancer. She sent a note telling Cindy that she was praying for her. I have given Dr. Riplinger permission to quote or reproduce anything she finds on our website.

I have become aware of three other independent Baptist preachers that Dr. Riplinger has threatened to sue. I have received unconfirmed reports of other threats. Gail “I have never defended myself publicly, God is my defender.” Riplinger has been a busy woman. Not only is she America’s leading independent Baptist female theologian, but she also has time for a ministry of harassment.

Mrs. Brin Shutt, (Dr. Riplinger’s daughter) has written to the Waite’s preaching to them in a self-righteous, threatening letter. Her preaching style is similar to her mother’s.

Several people have asked why I am out on the point on this issue. There are two primary reasons. First of all, Dr. Waite is a man in his eighties who has spent a lifetime in the Lord’s work. He is recovering from a heart attack experienced several days ago. He should not have to deal with all this garbage on his own. Secondly, there is an epidemic of Baptists suing each other and I am outraged by it. Our people are doing the devil’s work for him. It is time for everyone who believes I Corinthians 6:5-8 to demand a stop to this. Just this morning I became aware of another lawsuit—Baptist against Baptist. We must stand against this. If Dr. Waite sued Dr. Riplinger over her lies about him, I would publicly oppose him and contribute to Gail Riplinger’s defense fund. A friend of mine, who Dr. Riplinger lies about in Hazardous Materials, said several months ago “She is lucky that I believe in I Corinthians 6.” We must stand of this truth.

Based on an email received from Dr. Riplinger and Mrs. Shutt’s letter to the Waite’s, it appears that they are claiming to be following Matthew 18. At the end of this process they expect Dr. Waite to be declared a heathen and eligible to be sued. Of course, any King James Bible believer who has read Matthew 18 knows that it refers to solving problems within a local church. It has set procedures and involves submission to the authority of a local church. Again, Dr. Riplinger is no friend to the King James Bible. She uses it to gain fame and fortune but she does not care what it teaches.

It is clear that Dr. Riplinger intends to continue this nonsense, If it goes any further, I will lead the way in organizing a legal defense fund for any Baptist preacher who is sued by Dr. Riplinger. We must not allow her to use her book sale money to overwhelm and destroy fundamental Baptist preachers.

I admit it would be interesting to see Dr. Riplinger on the witness stand being cross-examined under the rules of evidence. I will encourage every Baptist preacher in America to attend this trial and see for themselves what Dr. Riplinger is really like.

Hundreds of Baptist preachers have read Dr. Riplinger’s letter threatening the Waite’s. The support for the Waite’s has been overwhelming. Several people in the legal profession have also looked at the letter. They do not think this will even see a courtroom because it is so frivolous. In the word summary of one attorney, “Rubbish!”

Over two dozen of my friends have asked if I am not concerned that I will now become the target of a smear campaign by Dr. Riplinger and her followers. I have been in this business for thirty-five years. I know how people like this work. Of course, I will be subjected to a smear campaign. It is a price I am willing to pay to stand for I Corinthians 6. No matter how vicious the lies are, I will not sue any independent Baptists.

Dr. Riplinger wants to make an issue out of a conflict Dr. Waite had in the 1990’s. A prominent Roman Catholic teacher made false accusations against Dr. Waite in a book. Dr. Waite confronted both him and the publisher. They both apologized and Dr. Waite was given a financial settlement out of court.

This Roman Catholic teacher claims to be an evangelical. A number of Baptists have warned about his statements about salvation. Regardless of his use of term “evangelical” he clearly believes that he is earning salvation by doing good works through the Catholic Church. Few Baptists would call him a brother.

This is highly different than a hysterical Baptist woman threatening to sue
several Baptist preachers. “He did it too” is never a justification for sin.

It is time for all King James Bible believers to stand together for the truths taught in the King James Bible.
