Dear BB Readers: I have the unpleasant task of informing you of another stark example of plagiarism that is becoming common practice with some Grace Evangelical Society “Crossless” gospel advocates. This latest is from Free Gracer and this is not a first occurrence of blatant plagiarism on his part. I will document Free Gracer’s plagiarism in a moment. First, however, as an FYI, Mr. Jim Johnson, another Crossless gospel advocate, committed plagiarism on scale that as far as anyone who witnessed it is concerned is unparalleled in Christian circles. You can read the documentation of Johnson’s massive plagiarism by viewing Copyright Infringement & Mass Plagiarism: Jim Johnson’s Series, Destroying Free Grace Theology.” Wikipedia defines plagiarism as, “the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work.” Now, I will draw your attention to the plagiarism of Free Gracer. As mentioned, this is not the first time that Free Gracer has been found to be plagiarizing the work of other men. In the Was James Written to Believers thread, comment #7, Free Gracer posted an extended comment. That comment was copied and reposted by Baptist Believer on Page 5, comment #41. I will not repost Free Gracer’s entire lengthy comment, but I am going to post samples from it followed by the same notes from the article he plagiarized. The article Free Gracer plagiarized is titled, FAITH WITHOUT WORKS: A DEFINITION by John Niemelä EXAMPLE #1 Free Gracer (comment #7) . From Niemelä’s FAITH WITHOUT WORKS, (p. 6, last paragraph) Example #2 From Free Gracer (Comment #7) From Niemelä’s FAITH WITHOUT WORKS, (p. 8, second paragraph) EXAMPLE #3 Free Gracer, From Niemelä’s FAITH WITHOUT WORKS, (p. 8, footnote #11.) This latest example of Free Gracer’s plagiarism was easy to recognize. The plagiarized author’s writing style is far superior to how Free Gracer typically writes. A simple search yielded the plagiarized document. Free Gracer did not even try to disguise his plagiarism. Maybe he thought no one at the Baptist Board would be familiar with the writing of John Niemelä, another GES “Crossless” gospel advocate. I have no explanation for why Free Gracer continues a pattern of plagiarism in his blog posting. One would expect the shame and humiliation of having been caught before would restrain him from new episodes such as this one. I am hopeful he will acknowledge and apologize without qualifying or trying to justify yet another example of his plagiarism? LM *Earlier today I e-mailed Antonio to inform him that his plagiarism has been discovered and will be noted at the BB.
