I don’t doubt that the man has had a good change in mind/heart in numerous areas. The fact that, apparently, he has been reconciled with Jeff Durbin and others is evidence enough for me in that regard. He at least appears to be more level headed and ecumenical in this regard.
Again, however, I have not had much contact with him outside of a devastating incident that he was involved in with a close friend. This incident opened my eyes to the danger of the entirely disjointed community he is the leader of in OK, a community that has had many issues that have been unable to be rightly addressed since it is, in my understanding, entirely “non-institutional” but instead unofficially ran by a few different dominant personalities with dangerous theology - for example, a type of Wesleyan perfectionism.
Also, Reasnor’s supposed “egalitarianism” doesn’t make him a bad source. If anything, the evidence he provides along with his history of being close to Russell and a part of his home church makes him a fine source. Along the lines of Reasnor’s point, drunkenness is a disqualifier from leadership and needs to be immediately confessed by leaders along with, at least, their temporary resignation. Attempting to hide or minimize it is not only wrong, but extremely troubling in the fact that it removes any form of trust that could be had in said leader to be honest and open about other potentially disqualifying actions.
